For over six months, policymakers have debated how to stop the spread of the virus, and most safety measures were left up to the states to implement. Leana S. Wen, emergency physician, visiting professor at the George Washington University’s Milken School of Public Health and the former Baltimore health commissioner and David J. Skorton, a medical doctor and president and CEO of the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) will join Washington Post senior writer Frances Stead Sellers on Wednesday, July 29 at 12:00 p.m. ET.
