Primary areas of focus include the development, scale, and distribution of diagnostics, therapeutics, track and tracing strategies, and vaccines. During this interactive discussion, Dr. McClellan will highlight national initiatives, discuss a road map for reopening and preliminary indicators of impact, and describe short-term efforts over the next six months as well as health and health care changes in the long-term.
