On this edition of Your Call, we’re getting an update on COVID-19 as the US death toll passed 170,000 this week. Six months in and we still don’t have a national plan.

Experts say there is no end in sight. Where does that leave us? We’ll get the latest on the death toll, what we now know about the struggle to recover, positive cases among young people, and more. What questions do you have about the COVID crisis?
