Early in the pandemic’s spread in the U.S., the lack of adequate testing became a major obstacle. That obstacle persists in many places. Social distancing and other measures have bought time. However, some states are experiencing record case numbers, even while others are seeing declines. In this Facebook Live Q&A epidemiologist Michael Mina described hopes for affordable, daily, home testing to help contain virus spread and safely reopen society. He also provided an update on the pandemic, including what can be done about surges of cases in parts of the country. The World’s Elana Gordon moderated.
