As COVID Cases Spike, White House Declares Pandemic Over
46 min
Former President Barack Obama says President Donald Trump is “jealous of COVID’s media coverage.” Indeed, Trump has complained at his rallies, attended by mostly maskless supporters, about how the media covers the pandemic — at a time when cases are rising rapidly across the nation. Meanwhile, open enrollment is about to begin for the Affordable Care Act in a year when many people need coverage but the law’s future is not secure. Joanne Kenen of Politico, Tami Luhby of CNN and Anna Edney of Bloomberg News join KHN’s Julie Rovner to discuss these issues and more. Plus, Rovner interviews KHN’s Anna Almendrala about the latest KHN-NPR “Bill of the Month” installment.

Clearing up confusion on potential COVID-19 vaccines, testing
After some promising results, Moderna is set to apply for FDA authorization of their vaccine today. Pfizer and BioNTech submitted their application earlier this month, making Moderna the second coronavirus vaccine candidate to seek emergency use authorization. A handful of other groups are in the process of planning or carrying out large-scale Phase 3 vaccine trials across the country. This progress is welcome news after the country reached 13 million confirmed COVID-19 cases on Friday. However, we’re not in the clear just yet. If and when a vaccine gets approved, there are several logistical hurdles that need to be cleared, like how to safely distribute the vaccine and which groups should be the first priority. * UI Health Care researcher How Stanley Perlman is advising federal agencies on a COVID-19 vaccine In the meantime, public health officials are pleading with people to limit contact with people outside of their household. MPR News senior reporter Catharine Richert spoke with two scientists about the latest guidance on testing, progress on vaccine candidates and our evolving understanding of COVID-19. Guests: * Dr. Stanley Perlman is a professor of microbiology and immunology at the University of Iowa and is on the Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee, which advises the FDA on the approval of COVID-19 vaccines. * Kumi Smith is an assistant professor in the Division of Epidemiology and Community Health at the University of Minnesota’s School of Public Health.
