The number of Americans who have died from COVID-19 now exceeds 770,000, and the pandemic continues to challenge our country as nothing else in modern history. While the percentage of vaccinated Americans continues to rise, misinformation and vaccine resistance persists.

Fauci, the leading government scientific voice in the effort to combat the pandemic and a top medical researcher in infectious disease, will report on the country's progress toward containing the COVID-19 virus and what challenges remain.

Fauci began his career at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in 1968 in the Laboratory of Clinical Investigation in NIAID and was later appointed Chief of the Laboratory of Immunoregulation in 1980, a position he still holds to this day. Fauci became director of NIAID in 1984 and has advised two Presidents on COVID-19, and five Presidents on HIV/AIDS and many other domestic and global health issues. President George W. Bush awarded Fauci the Presidential Medal of Freedom for his role as an architect of the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR).
