When  Nashville identified its first case of coronavirus in March 2020, the  city was between Public Health Department directors and as unprepared as  the rest of the world for what was to come. Dr. Alex Jahangir, a trauma  surgeon acting at that time as chair of the Metro Nashville Board of  Health, unexpectedly found himself head of the city's COVID-19 Task  Force and responsible for leading it through uncharted waters.

What followed was a year of unprecedented challenge and scrutiny.  Jahangir, who immigrated to the US from Iran at age six, grew up in  Nashville. He thought he knew the city well. But the pandemic laid bare  ethnic, racial, and cultural tensions that daily threatened to derail  what should have been a collective effort to keep residents healthy and  safe.

Hot Spot is  Jahangir's narrative of the first year of COVID, derived from his op  notes (the journal-like entries surgeons often keep following  operations) and expanded to include his personal reflections and a  glimpse into the inner sanctums of city and state governance in crisis.
