Months into the coronavirus pandemic, the United States is setting new case records on an almost daily basis.

A new president will also mean a change in how the federal government will address the spread of COVID-19.

President-elect Joe Biden has assembled a task force of health experts to advise him on how to address a crisis that will only grow worse in the winter months.

Celine Gounder is a clinical assistant professor at New York University and a member of President-elect Joe Biden’s new COVID-19 task force. 

Find our conversation with Vivek Murthy, who will lead Biden’s COVID-19 task force.
