Aria Bendix is a senior reporter at Insider, has been hired by NBC News to cover health news.

She started on Tuesday.

She writes predominantly about the COVID-19 pandemic. In March 2020, she broke the news that the CDC had unnecessarily delayed coronavirus testing for more than two weeks by failing to communicate with state labs. Then in May 2020, she broke the news that some COVID-19 patients were developing long-lasting symptoms (now known as long COVID).

In addition to COVID-19, Aria reports on environmental toxins and diseases such as autism and Alzheimer’s. Her feature stories have revealed harmful levels of lead in drinking water in Newark, New Jersey, and cancer and chronic coughs among residents of a former nuclear training site in San Francisco. She often discusses her work on radio, podcasts, and television.
