Dr. Anthony Fauci, at the White House, announced this week that the results of a trial using the anti-viral drug Remdesivir showed some promise.

This week, the U.S. passed 60,000 deaths from COVID-19 and more than one million people are now infected. And Diane’s guest, Dr. Michael Osterholm, says the country is still in the very early stages of this public health crisis. So, what exactly does that mean? And what might our lives look like as scientists race to come up with a vaccine?

Diane asked Dr. Osterholm these questions and how hopeful he is that the medical community can find therapies to treat the virus.

Dr. Osterholm is the director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota. Diane spoke with him Thursday afternoon.

Guests
