Coronavirus: What You Need To Know

Livestream with CAP's Experts

Center for American Progress livestream
4:00 - 4:45 PM EDT

The coronavirus—which causes the disease COVID-19—is now a global pandemic with huge impacts on every aspect of life. In the United States, differing accounts of severity of the crisis and what actions should be taken are coming from the president, Congress, federal agencies, governors, and local authorities, which is contributing to the spread of misinformation and putting everyone at increased risk.

Please join the Center for American Progress for an online event focusing on the state of play in the fight against COVID-19. CAP experts in health, economic, and national security policy will draw on their years of experience to share where we are as a nation and a global community; explain what steps federal, state, and local governments are and should be taking to help flatten the curve; and answer your questions about this pandemic.

CAP experts:
Maura Calsyn, Managing Director, Health Policy
Andres Vinelli, Vice President, Economic Policy
Kelly Magsamen, Vice President, National Security and International Policy

Ed Chung, Vice President, Criminal Justice Reform; Co-Host, “The Tent”
