Coronavirus cases in the U.S. have surged past 11 million, with more than 240,000 Americans dead. Anthony S. Fauci, director of National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), is the highest-ranking public health expert on viruses. For months, Fauci has been warning about a difficult winter and asking people to wear masks and practice physical distancing. As state leaders scramble to implement new restrictions, several vaccine trials are showing encouraging results. Fauci will discuss how to slow the spread of infection and explain the challenges of distributing the vaccine once it’s approved. Join Washington Post national political reporter Robert Costa for a one-on-one conversation with Fauci on Monday, Nov. 23 at 1:00 p.m. ET.
