Things didn’t stay light for very long, Lauer asked Damon if he thought that America would be prepared for a pandemic.

“I’m guardedly optimistic,” said Damon. “One takeaway for us was the scientists at the (Center for Disease Control) … they’re really a competent, capable, dedicated group of people. … I feel like there’s a great group of minds that are constantly vigilant about protecting us. So that’s the good part.”
