It’s not a question of if, but when, says Carmela Epright with regard to the possibility of an overwhelming COVID-19-like pandemic in the Palmetto State. Epright, a Furman University philosophy professor, is part of the South Carolina Pandemic Healthcare Ethics Advisory Council, comprised of representatives from heath care, government, religious and community groups.
