THE COVID CRISIS – A SPECIAL EDITION OF MEET THE PRESS WITH CHUCK TODD

This Sunday, on a special edition of Meet the Press, Chuck Todd takes an in-depth look at how the U.S. has handled the Covid-19 pandemic, why it has worsened here while easing in other industrialized countries, and what steps need to be taken to emerge from the crisis.

Todd, joined by a panel of experts including infectious disease specialists, small business leaders, state government leaders, and medical doctors, looks back at the beginning of the pandemic and breaks down the federal government’s response in containing and mitigating the spread of Covid-19.

The one-hour special then looks ahead at the future of vaccine development and deployment and the range of varying strategies individual states across the country are implementing to fight the deadly pandemic on their own.
