Dr. Robert Redfield, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), joined the Council on Foreign Relations for a virtual conversation on his agency’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. Dr. Redfield provided an assessment of projected COVID-19 fatalities in the U.S., saying, “We are in the timeframe now that probably for the next 60 to 90 days we’re going to have more deaths per day than we had at 9/11 or we had at Pearl Harbor.” Shortly after this event, an FDA advisory panel recommended authorization of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine. close
