Where to go from here? Virus experts questioned by Senate
WASHINGTON, D.C. (AP) — Countries are moving ahead with plans to reopen economies despite new coronavirus outbreaks and often a lack of contact tracing systems needed to limit them. In the U.S., leading infectious disease experts are to testify at a Senate hearing Tuesday. Democratic senators are expected to ask the experts, including Dr. Anthony Fauci of the National Institutes of Health, tough questions about the virus death toll in the U.S., its virus testing capabilities and the perceived failures of Trump’s administration in fighting the pandemic. The U.S. has seen at least 1.3 million infections and nearly 81,000 deaths from the virus, the highest toll in the world by far.
