On Thursday’s Houston Matters: As COVID-19 cases continue to climb in Greater Houston, local hospitals are struggling to treat the influx of patients. Mayor Sylvester Turner expressed his concern specifically for Ben Taub and LBJ hospitals — the publicly funded hospitals in the Harris Health System. We check in with the system’s CEO, Dr. Esmaeil Porsa.

Also this hour: Heading into the Fourth of July weekend, and in light of protests and unrest across the country, how do you feel about America right now and the direction the nation is headed? And what’s your idea of patriotism?

And Taya Wright offers some advice for organizing and decluttering your life.
