A Former CDC Director On The U.S. COVID Response 11

The nation has found itself up against what we hope is a massive, once-in-a-century public health emergency. And compared to other developed nations, we’ve failed on several fronts. Tom Frieden directed the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention from 2009-2017 and began his tenure facing the H1N1 pandemic. He talks with host Krys Boyd about the current response to COVID-19 and what America needs to do to prepare for future global outbreaks. This conversation is part of this year’s virtual Texas Tribune Festival.
