WATCH: Harvard-NPR panel on the fight to tame COVID

The world is approaching the second anniversary of a cluster of cases of respiratory illness traced to the Huanan Seafood Market in Wuhan, China, in December 2019. The cause: a virus we now know as SARS-CoV-2.

The World Health Organization named the illness caused by the virus COVID-19 in February 2020, as cases mounted in China and began spreading elsewhere.

Where are we now in the COVID-19 pandemic and where are we headed?
