Bill Frist has worked as both a surgeon and a senator, as the former Senate Majority Leader from Tennessee, and raised the alarm about preparing for pandemics 15 years ago. As Majority Leader, he helped pass PEPFAR, the Bush administration’s landmark emergency plan for AIDS relief, which provided more than $80 billion in funding for HIV treatment. Frist speaks with Michel Martin about President Trump’s approach to COVID-19 and the vital importance of science, data and contact tracing.

Originally aired on April 27, 2020.
