On December 14, 2020, the CSIS Commission on Strengthening America’s Health Security hosted a conversation with Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and member of the White House Coronavirus Task Force. Moderated by J. Stephen Morrison, Senior Vice President and Director of the CSIS Global Health Policy Center, Dr. Anthony Fauci offered his personal reflections on 2020, a year unlike any other. Amid good and bad outcomes, revelations and stumbles, what was learned as the Covid-19 pandemic unfolded? As the pandemic surges, the year concludes amid huge losses, a deeply divided nation, a new administration and Congress, and rising hope as promising vaccines are introduced. How is the country to navigate these currents? How is a durable national consensus to be forged?
