StateImpact: An Oklahoma Teacher Shares Her Battle With The Coronavirus

MChe Lee

StateImpact’s Robby Korth and OPMX's Kateleigh Mills spoke with an Oklahoma City metro teacher named Anna about her experience catching the coronavirus and missing
more than a week of classes.

Anna struggled with the disease, but credits her vaccination with keeping her from getting more sick.

StateImpact isn’t disclosing Anna’s last name or school due to her concerns about it affecting her job.
