This week on Matter of Fact with Soledad O’Brien, hundreds of rural hospitals are in danger of closing, overwhelmed by the growing number of coronavirus patients. Correspondent Jessica Gomez reports from Titus County, TX where their regional medical center is being pushed to its limits. Then, as progress is made on a COVID vaccine, experts say they’re worried getting vaccinated could become politicized like wearing a mask. Top immunologist Dr. James E. K.
