As more of the school year is lost due to the coronavirus lockdown, when will students be allowed back into the classroom?
At Tuesday's press conference, Dr Anthony Fauci tried to answer the million-dollar question, cautiously offering a prediction.
"I fully expect — though I'm humble enough to know that I can't accurately predict — that by the time we get to the fall, that we will have this under control enough that it certainly will not be the way it is now, where people are shutting schools," the nation's infectious disease expert said.
Fauci feels that the determination will be based on the US's ability to test for the disease, the number of people who have built up immunity, and the number of new infections.
