SALT LAKE CITY - Republican Mike Pence firmly defended the Trump administration's handling of the COVID-19 pandemic that has killed more than 210,000 Americans while his Democratic challenger, Kamala Harris, condemned "the greatest failure of any presidential administration" in a Wednesday night debate dominated by the coronavirus.

Because of the virus, the candidates were separated by plexiglass barriers in the debate, which was a far more civil affair than last week's presidential faceoff in which President Donald Trump, now back in Washington recovering from COVID-19, constantly interrupted, almost yelling at times.

With the virus sweeping through the highest levels of government and Trump just days out of the hospital, Pence acknowledged that "our nation's gone through a very challenging time this year."
