‘Confronting Coronavirus’ PBS NewsHour Special Airs Thursday

It’s been less than three months since reports of the coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan, China, first made international headlines. With worldwide cases  on every continent now except for Antarctica growing significantly every day, the World Health Organization has now declared COVID-19 a global pandemic.

Confronting Coronavirus: A PBS NewsHour Special which airs Thursday, March 19, at 7 PM will focus on health precautions for individuals and the public-at-large as well as the pandemic’s economic impact in both the United States and globally. The prime-time special, to be anchored by managing editor Judy Woodruff, will include interviews with officials; reporting from NewsHour’s bench of special correspondents throughout the world; and a virtual town hall with curated questions from people across America, to be moderated by NewsHour correspondents Amna Nawaz and William Brangham.
