As part of our coronavirus series The Search for Solutions, TODAY’s Savannah Guthrie spoke exclusively to Melinda Gates, who is working to address the pandemic through the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. She says there are “a few good candidates” for a vaccine and that the U.S. needs “to start looking at a paid medical leave policy” to help workers on the front lines. She also criticizes the Trump administration for its response to the crisis: “We haven’t had leadership at the national level … it’s chaos.”
