After months of social distancing, job losses and other impacts, a surge of new U.S. coronavirus cases has prompted serious questions about how America is coping with the pandemic. Have some states reopened too soon? Have mixed messages from national, state and local leaders muddled our understanding of risk? And how prepared are Americans to continue to adhere to public health recommendations? Layered on this is the continued challenge to understand the virus itself and the race to create a vaccine and treatments to combat it. Harvard Chan epidemiologist William Hanage and The World’s Elana Gordon discussed concerns about the surge as society tries to reopen in a Facebook Live event on July 7, 2020.
