The Daily Show with Trevor Noah landed late-night’s first interview with Dr. Anthony Fauci, White House Coronavirus Task Force Member and Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, since the COVID-19 pandemic began. The interview was captured virtually earlier yesterday and it aired in its entirety in an all-new episode of The Daily Social Distancing Show with Trevor Noah last night on Comedy Central.
The interview is also available on all of the series’ social platforms, including The Daily Show’s YouTube Channel.
Dr. Fauci spoke with Trevor Noah to share critical information about the importance of staying home and practicing distancing to reduce the spread of COVID-19. This interview was one of four that Dr. Fauci conducted on Thursday, March 26 with influential personalities specifically chosen due to their vast social and digital reach and their hyper-engaged YouTube audiences. The series of interviews was done in an effort to share factual, authoritative information with a younger audience that may not be consuming news via more traditional sources.
