Coronavirus cases are rising in King, Pierce and Snohomish Counties. But some restrictions are loosening: movie theaters reopen on Friday.

Dr. Ali Mokdad from the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, which tries to predict when coronavirus cases will rise and why, joins KIRO Radio's Dave Ross to discuss what to expect as we head into colder weather and plan more indoor gatherings.

Dr. Mokdad also offers his best prediction for when this will all be over: in other words, when we can expect a vaccine. Two major vaccine trials paused this week after a small number of negative reactions, and reporter Aaron Granillo will explain why that's actually good news.

And, of course, we take a look at the campaign trail. Two Biden campaign staff members have tested positive for the coronavirus. And President Trump resumed his rallies, triumphing his defeat of the disease.

Join the conversation in the COVID-19: Seattle Facebook group.
