WATCH: Harvard-NPR panel on the fight to tame COVID

A livestreamed panel discussion involving Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and NPR will include updates on COVID-19 vaccines for children, as well as other pressing issues affecting the course of the pandemic.
Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health

The world is approaching the second anniversary of a cluster of cases of respiratory illness traced to the Huanan Seafood Market in Wuhan, China, in December 2019. The cause: a virus we now know as SARS-CoV-2.

The World Health Organization named the illness caused by the virus COVID-19 in February 2020, as cases mounted in China and began spreading elsewhere.

Where are we now in the COVID-19 pandemic and where are we headed?

A panel of experts convened by NPR and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health will discuss the latest developments and challenges during a live-streamed event from noon to 1 p.m. on Friday.
