As the White House contends with its own cluster of Covid-19 cases, around the U.S., several states are seeing cases rise - a concerning trend as the cold winter months approach.

Concerns mount over a surging virus — inside the White House, and around the country.

It has been one week since the public learned the president tested positive for Covid-19. Now, Trump says he has overcome the virus, and even indicated he wanted to head back out on the campaign trail.

But an accurate picture of the president’s medical condition remains unclear. Equally murky is the fallout from the cluster of cases in the White House.

In the meantime, public health officials warn we may see a rise in coronavirus cases as the weather gets colder, and as the country continues to take a piecemeal approach to combating its spread.

Diane spoke with Laurie Garrett, Pulitzer prize-winning science writer, about the state of the pandemic and what the next few months might look like.
