Diane talks with Dr. Fauci about the growing number of daily cases, the potential for a vaccine, and what the next several months might look like in this country.
Across the world, more than 15 million people have been infected with Covid-19 and an estimated 630 thousand have died. The New York Times reports that 27 possible coronavirus vaccines are in human trials internationally.
Here in the U.S., a Moderna and NIH trial is in Phase III, the last hurdle before possible approval.
Meanwhile, the White House has announced it will give five promising vaccine makers billions of federal dollars to help fund their efforts.

Diane asked ProPublica health care reporter Caroline Chen for update on the vaccine development effort and challenges ahead with respect to managing public expectations and building trust.
