As a huge explosion rocks Lebanon's capital, our correspondent Ben Wedeman gives us the latest from the ground in Beirut. Then we turn to coronavirus and how it is impacting schools in the U.S. and around the world. Edward Lee Childress, superintendent of the Corinth school district in Mississippi, talks about reopening his schools and dealing with the surge in positive cases in his area. Arne Duncan, former secretary of education, also weighs in. He argues we are asking too much of school officials. Megan Rapinoe, two-time world cup soccer champion, discusses her new HBO special 'Seeing America with Megan Rapinoe' and the movement for racial justice. Turning back to the Covid-19 pandemic, our Walter Isaacson talks to Dr. Francis Collins, director of the National Institutes of Health - aka Fauci’s boss - about the search for a vaccine and the very tough months that lie ahead.
