THE FACIAL RECOGNITION ON MY PHONE WORKS BUT AFTER WEARING A MASK FOR THE PAST FEW MONTHS, IT IS A STRANGE SENSATION TO HAVE SO MUCH OPEN SPACE UNDERNEATH MY CHIN AND AROUND THE SIDE OF MY FACE WHEN I WEAR A MASK, YOU CAN SEE IT COVERS MY NOSE, MY MOUTH, AND MY CHIN, WITHOUT ANY BIG GAPS CDC RECOMMENDS WE WEAR FACE COVERINGS LIKE THIS BECAUSE THEY CAPTURE OUR GERMS, AND PREVENT THEM FROM READING TO OTHERS SO WHICH ONE IS BETTER SO FAR, NO STUDIES HAVE BEEN DONE TO COMPARE THE TWO WHEN IT COMES TO COVID-19 BUT A 2014 STUDY LOOKED AT HOW WELL FACE SHIELDS BLOCKED FLU DROPLETS RESEARCHERS USED A COUGH SIMULATOR, AND FOUND THAT FACE SHIELDS REDUCED A PERSON'S EXPOSURE TO LARGE COUGH DROPLETS BY 96% BUT SMALLER DROPLETS WERE ABLE TO FLOAT AROUND THE SHIELD, AND BE INHALED THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION HAS NOW ACKNOWLEDGED CORONAVIRUS MAY LINGER IN THE AIR, AND COULD BE RESPONSIBLE FOR OUTBREAKS OF COVID-19 REPORTED IN RESTAURANTS, NIGHTCLUBS, WORK, AND PLACES OF WORSHIP

STILL, DR ADALGIA SAYS HE BELIEVES FACE SHIELDS ARE EFFECTIVE BECAUSE OF THE WAY THAT DROPLETS MOVE IN THE AIR >> THE FACE SHIELD SEEMS TO HAVE A LOT OF OPENINGS, DOWN BY YOUR MOUTH AND CHIN AREA IS — DOES THAT REDUCE THEIR EFFECTIVENESS? >> YOU WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT THE FACE SHIELD GOES DOWN TO AT LEAST YOUR CHIN AND DEFINITELY, GOING TO BE AN OPENING THERE

I DON'T THINK YOU ARE SEEING MANY PEOPLE GET INFECTED WHERE A DROPLET COMES DOWN AND GOES BACK UP >> DR ADALGIA SAYS CLOTH MASKS PREVENT YOU FROM SPREADING THE VIRUS YOU BUT HE THINKS FACE SHIELDS OFFER TWO-WAY PROTECTION HOWEVER, TCDC DOES NOT CURRENTLY RECOMMEND FACE SHIELDS AND RESEARCH SHOWS MASKS PREVENT THE SPREAD OF COVID-19, BY CONTAINING GERMS BECOME IN JUNE, WITH HELP FROM A COLUMNBIA UNIVERSITY MICRO BIOLOGIST, WE SHOWED HOW THREE DIFFERENT MASKS FROM MY COUGH, DROPLETS THAT COULD CARRY CORONAVIRUS NOTHING GREW ON PETRI DISHES WHEN I HAD MY NOSE AND MOUTH COVERED

BUT LOOK AT WHAT GREW WHEN I DIDN'T WHETHER IT'S A SHIELD OR A MASK, PUBLIC HEATH EXPERTS AGREE, COVERING YOUR NOSE AND MOUTH WILL REDUCE THE SPREAD OF COVID-19 >> AND WHILE SOME DOCTORS THINK SHIELDS COULD BE GOOD FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE BREATHING ISSUES, CDC IS STILL NOT RECOMMENDING THEM AS A SUBSTITUTE FOR MASKS AND I HAVE SEEN A LOT OF PEOPLE DO BOTH SO IF YOU WANT THE DOUBLE PROTECTION, ALWAYS HAVE TWO OPTION >>> WELCOME BACK THE WEEKEND FORECAST ON FRIDAY, WE WATCHED SOME OF THOSE STORMS GOING THROUGH THE NORTHEAST HOT AND HUMID WEATHER WILL BE THROUGH AREAS OF THE SOUTHEAST AND THE MIDDLE OF THE COUNTRY

AMISH IS AN INFECTIOUS DISEASE DOCTOR AT JOHNS HOPKINS UNIVERSITY >> IT ALSO COVERS YOUR EYES AND WE KNOW THE EYES ARE AN IMPORTANT ROUTE OF INFECTION WE KNOW PEOPLE WEARING MASKS ARE TOUCHING THEIR FACE CONSTANTLY TO ADJUST THEM WHEN YOU WARE A FACE SHIELD, THAT REALLY NOT AN ISSUE >> THESE FACE SHIELDS ARE DEFINITELY A DIFFERENT LOOK AND FEEL FROM THE MASKS FOR STARTERS, IT'S A LOT EASIER TO TALK AND TO BREATHE WHILE WEARING THEM, AND I DON'T HAVE TO ADJUST IT ONCE I PUT IT ON PLUS, I CAN ACTUALLY EVEN DRINK WHILE WEARING IT AND A BONUS? THE FACIAL RECOGNITION ON MY PHONE WORKS

BUT AFTER WEARING A MASK FOR THE PAST FEW MONTHS, IT IS A STRANGE SENSATION TO HAVE SO MUCH OPEN SPACE UNDERNEATH MY CHIN AND AROUND THE SIDE OF MY FACE WHEN I WEAR A MASK, YOU CAN SEE IT COVERS MY NOSE, MY MOUTH, AND MY CHIN, WITHOUT ANY BIG GAPS CDC RECOMMENDS WE WEAR FACE COVERINGS LIKE THIS BECAUSE THEY CAPTURE OUR GERMS, AND PREVENT THEM FROM SPREADING TO OTHERS SO WHICH ONE IS BETTER SO FAR, NO STUDIES HAVE BEEN DONE TO COMPARE THE TWO WHEN IT COMES TO COVID-19 BUT A 2014 STUDY LOOKED AT HOW WELL FACE SHIELDS BLOCKED FLU DROPLETS RESEARCHERS USED A COUGH SIMULATOR, AND FOUND THAT FACE SHIELDS REDUCED A PERSON'S EXPOSURE TO LARGE COUGH DROPLETS BY 96% BUT SMALLER DROPLETS WERE ABLE TO FLOAT AROUND THE SHIELD, AND BE INHALED THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION HAS NOW ACKNOWLEDGED CORONAVIRUS MAY LINGER IN THE AIR, AND COULD BE RESPONSIBLE FOR OUTBREAKS OF COVID-19 REPORTED IN RESTAURANTS, NIGHTCLUBS, WORK, AND PLACES OF WORSHIP STILL, DR ADALGIA SAYS HE BELIEVES FACE SHIELDS ARE EFFECTIVE BECAUSE OF THE WAY THAT DROPLETS MOVE IN THE AIR >> THE FACE SHIELD SEEMS TO HAVE A LOT OF OPENINGS, DOWN BY YOUR MOUTH AND CHIN AREA

>> Reporter: GREAT TO SEE YOU, AL >> YOU DECIDED YOU WANT TO BE HEALTHY AND YOU WANT TO GET A CORONAVIRUS TEST WHO PAYS FOR THAT? DO YOU PAY OR IS IT FREE? WHAT'S THE DEAL? >> Reporter: RIGHT NOW, THEY ARE FREE AND YOU SHOULD NOT HAVE TO PAY FOR IT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT HAS TWO POTS OF MONEY FROM THE FAMILY FIRST CORONAVIRUS ACT AND THE CA

RES ACT THE IDEA IS FOR EITHER A DIAGNOSTIC TEST OR ANTIBODY TESTS TO BE COVERED AT NO COST TO YOU

IF YOU ALREADY HAD GOTTEN A TEST AND NOW YOU PAY FOR IT, FILE A CLAIM FOR REIMBURSEMENT FROM YOUR INSURANCE COMPANY IF YOU DON'T HAVE INSURANCE, THIS IS THE TIME TO ASK IF THEY WILL BILL THE CARE PROVIDERS RELIEF FUND AND YOU CAN CHECK WITH YOUR PUBLIC HEALTH DEPARTMENT, WITH THEM OFFERING FREE TESTING ALL OVER THE COMPANY YOU MAY HAVE SERIOUS LINES, THOUGH ANOTHER OPTION IS TO CHECK WITH YOUR COMMUNITY HEALTH CLINIC >> UNFORTUNATELY, IF YOU GET ILL AND HAVE TO BE HOSPITALIZED, WHAT DO YOU NEED TO KNOW AND TO BE AWARE OF? >> Reporter: THIS IS IMPORTANT

DESIGNATE SOMEONE WHO WILL BE YOUR ADVOCATE IF YOU ARE THE PATIENT IF SOMEONE IN YOUR FAMILY IS SICK, YOU MAY TAKE THAT RISK ABILITY ON BEHALF OF THEM YOU MAY BE GOING TO A HOSPITAL IN YOUR INSURANCE NETWORK, BUT THE DOCTORS THAT TREAT YOU MAY NOT BE IN THAT NETWORK AND THAT CAN BE STICKY ASK THOSE QUESTIONS UP FRONT THERE IS A POSSIBILITY THAT THEY WILL CHARGE YOU IN THAT WORK CRISIS FOR AN OUT-OF-NETWORK DOCTOR BUT YOU HAVE TO ASK

IT DOESN'T HAPPEN AUTOMATICALLY AND YOU HAVE TO ASK IF THEY ACCEPT YOUR INSURANCE OR IF YOU GET A DISCOUNT OR PAYMENT PLAN THE OTHER PART IS TO MAKE SURE THAT THE DOCTORS TREATING YOU PARTICIPATE IN THE PROVIDER RELIEF FUND TO RESULT IN A LOWER COST FOR YOU >> NOW, YOU GET OUT IN THE BILLS ROLL IN WHAT DO YOU LOOK OUT FOR? WHAT IF YOU SAY THIS ISN'T RIGHT AND I SHOULDN'T BE CHARGED FOR THIS? >> Reporter: IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT GET THE EXPLANATION OF BENEFITS, THE EEOB AND LOOK AT THAT FORM VERY CAREFULLY

COMPARE THAT TO YOUR ACTUAL BILL ARE THESE TREATMENTS THAT YOU ACTUALLY RECEIVED? THOSE AREN'T PERFECT LOOK AT THAT AS A STARTING POINT FOR NEGOTIATING THE PRICE OF WHAT YOU EVENTUALLY WE'LL PAY AND MAKE SURE THAT YOU REACH OUT TO THE PATIENT ADVOCATE MOST HOSPITALS HAVE ONE AND THEY WILL BE CONTACT INFORMATION AT THE BOTTOM OF THE EXPLANATION OF BENEFIT FORM IT'S IMPORTANT TO MAINTAIN COMMUNICATIONS

IF YOU CAN'T PAY RIGHT NOW, TALK ABOUT A PAYMENT PLAN THE LAST THING YOU WANT IS TO BE SENT TO COLLECTIONS YOU NEED TO DOCUMENT EVERYTHING WE SPOKE ABOUT THIS AND IT'S VERY IMPORTANT, TO STAY ORGANIZED >> WE'VE SEEN ANYWHERE FROM FIVE MILLION TO 27 MILLION LOSING HEALTH INSURANCE AND 1

3 BILLION FILED UNEMPLOYMENT WHAT IF YOU DON'T HAVE INSURANCE? >> Reporter: THIS IS IMPORTANT YOU'VE GOT TO GO TO YOUR STATE MEDICAID WEBSITE AND THERE ARE PROGRAMS THAT VARY STATE-BY- STATE BUT THE CHILDREN'S HEALTH INSURANCE PLAN IS AVAILABLE, AS WELL GO TO SEARCH FOR THE HEALTH PLANS ONLINE TO SEE WHAT YOUR OPTIONS ARE AND CHECK OUT HEALTHCAREGOV TO GO TO THE MARKETPLACE AND FIND AN AFFORDABLE HEALTH PLAN

THE LAST OPTION IS FOR US ARE ONE OF THE MILLIONS OF AMERICANS WHO HAVE BEEN LAID OFF, YOU WOULD HAVE 60 DAYS TO EXTEND YOUR COBRA AND THAT MEANS CONTINUING ON THE HEALTH CARE PLAN YOU HAVE THROUGH YOUR EMPLOYER IT IS EXPENSIVE AND NOT THE BEST OPTION BUT, IF YOU ARE GETTING CHEMOTHERAPY OR HAVE ONGOING TREATMENT RIGHT NOW THAT YOU MAY NOT WANT TO CHANGE, FOR YOUR HEALTH INSURANCE PROVIDER, IF YOU CAN EXTEND YOUR COVERAGE THROUGH COBRA, THAT MAY BE A GOOD OPTION SO YOU DON'T INTERRUPT YOUR CARE BECK VICKI, GREAT TIPS AND I'M SURE WE WILL COME BACK TO YOU FOR MORE AS THIS DRAGS ON THANKS SO MUCH

THEY'VE SET UP RESTAURANTS AND THINGS FOR US TO DO THEY'VE DONE A PRETTY GOOD JOB, AS BEST THEY CAN >> LAST WEEK, WE REPORTED THAT THE NBA WILL ALLOW PLAYERS TO WEAR CERTAIN PHRASES OR WORDS ON THE BACK OF JERSEYS, THINGS LIKE, I CAN'T BREATHE OR BLACK LIVES MATTER OR JUSTICE WILL YOU BE WEARING A WORD OR PHRASE AND HOW DO YOU THINK THAT THE LEAGUE WILL ACKNOWLEDGE THIS MOMENT WE ARE IN RIGHT NOW? >> I'M WEARING SOMETHING, I'M WEARING A NAME AND I FEEL LIKE IT MEANS A LOT FOR PEOPLE TO CONTINUE TO KEEP SAYING THE NAMES AND TO BRING JUSTICE TO THOSE PEOPLE I WISH I COULD HAVE CHOSEN THE NAME OR A PHRASE THAT I WANTED, RATHER THAN PRESET NAMES, BUT IN THE CIRCUMSTANCES, THIS IS WHAT WE HAVE AND WE HAVE TO ROLL WITH IT

>> LAUREN, THE BLACK LIVES MATTER MOVEMENT IS SOMETHING YOU'VE BEEN PASSIONATE ABOUT AND LAST MONTH YOU PENNED AN ARTICLE IN THE PLAYERS TRIBUNE THAT I READ IT DETAILED THINGS THAT YOU AND JRUE HOLIDAY HAS GONE THROUGH AS AN INTERRACIAL COUPLE WHAT MADE YOU DECIDE TO WRITE THAT PIECE? >> FOR US, WE ARE VERY PRIVATE AND WE DON'T SHARE A LOT OF OUR LIVES AND I THINK THAT DURING THIS TIME, IT WAS SO IMPORTANT FOR ME, AS A WHITE PERSON, SHARE SEEING WHAT MY HUSBAND HAS GONE THROUGH AND WHAT HIS FAMILY WENT THROUGH IT PALES IN COMPARISON TO WHAT HAS HAPPENED AROUND OUR COUNTRY FOR SO MANY YEARS I FELT IT WAS IMPORTANT FOR ME TO SHARE AND FOR MY FOLLOWERS AND MAYBE MORE WHITE PEOPLE WOULD OPEN THEIR EYES AND THEY WOULD LISTEN

IT WAS REALLY IMPORTANT FOR US TO SHARE THAT STORY >> YOU DIDN'T JUST WRITE THE ARTICLE YOU PUT YOUR MONEY WHERE YOUR MOUTH IS AS I UNDERSTAND IT, YOU AND YOUR HUSBAND WERE LYING IN BED ONE NIGHT AND ALL OF A SUDDEN YOU SUGGESTED THAT HE DO WHAT, LAUREN? WHAT WAS THE SUGGESTION? >> I KNEW THAT MY HUSBAND WAS STRUGGLING WITH GOING BACK AND DIDN'T WANT TO LEAVE ME AND MY DAUGHTER I'M ALSO PREGNANT AND HE DIDN'T WANT TO LEAVE US BUT HE WAS STRUGGLING WITH HOW ALL THIS IS HAPPENING

I FELT IT ON MY HEART AND I HAD BEEN PRAYING ABOUT IT AND ONE NIGHT I TOLD HIM THAT IF YOU GO BACK, I DON'T THINK YOU SHOULD TAKE ANY MONEY I THINK WE SHOULD GIVE IT ALL AWAY >> YOU SUGGESTED HE DONATE HIS ENTIRE SALARY FOR THE SEASON? >> YEAH I THOUGHT THAT WAS A GREAT IDEA >> JUNE 12, DID YOU THINK THAT WAS A GREAT IDEA? >> I THOUGHT HE WAS SAYING MY FULL SALARY AND NOT JUST THE REST OF IT THAT WAS GOING BACK AND I WAS LIKE — YOU KNOW — WE COULD DO IT

WE WILL MAKE IT WORK BUT I HAVE A GIVING HEART AND I REACH OUT AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE SHE'S HAD OUR BEST INTEREST AND THE OTHERS AND I KNEW NOT TO GO AGAINST MY WIFE >> SMART MAN WE ARE TALKING ABOUT ROUGHLY FIVE MILLION DOLLARS YOU'VE DECIDED TO DONATE TO VARIOUS CAUSES AND CHARITIES ASSOCIATED WITH THE BLACK LIVES MATTER MOVEMENT

WHERE HAVE YOU DECIDED TO GIVE THE MONEY? >> I THINK IT'S STILL AN ONGOING PROCESS FOR US WHAT WAS SO IMPORTANT WAS FOR US TO FIND THE PLACES THAT MAY BE FLYING UNDER THE RADAR THAT WERE CLOSED BECAUSE OF COVID YOU KNOW, SMALL BUSINESSES NOT MAKING IT DURING THESE TIMES IT WAS REALLY IMPORTANT FOR US TO GIVE TO BLACK- OWNED BUSINESSES BECAUSE RIGHT NOW, ESPECIALLY, THEY MIGHT GET LESS THAN 2% OF THE PAYOUTS THAT ARE HAPPENING ACROSS THE PPA AND EVERYTHING FOR US, IT WAS REALLY IMPORTANT TO FOCUS ON THAT

REALLY, JUST REBUILDING BUSINESSES AND EDUCATION AND JUST HELPING WHEREVER WE COULD I THINK WE'VE MADE PLEDGES NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA, LOS ANGELES AND INDIANAPOLIS BECAUSE THEY'RE CLOSE TO OUR HEARTS AND ABOUT 10 OTHER CITIES AND THAT'S WHERE WE WILL START >> LAUREN, WHEN ARE YOU DO, BY THE WAY? >> I'M DUE IN OCTOBER >> GOOD JRUE WILL BE OUT OF THE BUBBLE, PERFECT

>>> WELCOME BACK LAST WEEK WE BROUGHT YOU A >>> WELCOME BACK WE BROUGHT YOU A GREAT CONVERSATION LAST WEEK WITH A HISTORIAN THAT IS THE FOUNDER OF BOSTON UNIVERSITY'S CENTER FOR RACIST RESEARCH HE IS A NEW YORK TIMES BEST- SELLING OFFER OF A BOOK CALLED HOW TO BE AN ANTIRACIST HIS LATEST BOOK OFFERS LESSONS FOR KIDS AND PARENTS AND IN PART TWO OF OUR CONVERSATION, WE TALKED ABOUT WHERE WE GO FROM HERE

HERE IS MORE OF WHAT HE HAD TO SAY YOU SAY IT'S NEVER TOO EARLY TO TALK TO YOUR KIDS ABOUT RACE AND RACISM? >> THE WAY PARENTS CAN THINK ABOUT TEACHING KIDS TO BE ANTIRACIST, THEY VALUE RAISING THEIR KIDS, THE SAME WAY WE VALUE THEM TO BE KIND WE RAISE THEM TO BE LOVING AND OUR CHILDREN ARE RECOGNIZING RACE AND OUR CHILDREN BEGIN AT 2 YEARS OLD, TO INTERNALIZE RACIST IDEAS AND MANY PARENTS BELIEVE A 2-YEAR- OLD OR 6-MONTH- OLD IS COLORBLIND AND THEY DON'T BEGIN THIS CONVERSATION >> IS THAT NOT GOOD ENOUGH TO SAY THAT I TREAT EVERYBODY FAIRLY AND TEACH MY KIDS TO BE NICE TO EACH OTHER AND I HAVE A MIXED AMOUNT OF FRIENDS AND I'M FINE? IS THAT NOT GOOD ENOUGH? >> IT'S NOT GOOD ENOUGH NEED EVERY SINGLE AMERICAN TO BE PART OF THIS STRUGGLE AND TO ELIMINATE RACISM

WE NEED A COLLECTIVE FORCE TO UPROOT SOMETHING THAT IS SO HISTORIC >> A LOT OF PEOPLE, AND EVEN FOR ME, TO SAY THE WORD RACIST — IT FEELS A LITTLE UNCOMFORTABLE FOR SOME REASON, THAT WORD HOLDS MORE POWER THAN I COULD IMAGINE >> IN MANY WAYS, RACIST HAS ALMOST BEEN MADE INTO THE NEW N- WORD IT'S PERCEIVED WHERE YOU COULD IDENTIFY SOMEONE AS BEING RACIST THAT YOU ARE TRYING TO HURT THEM BUT THAT'S NOT HOW WE SHOULD UNDERSTAND THE TERM, RACIST

IT'S A DESCRIPTIVE TERM AND THAT IS ALL IT EVER DOES IS DESCRIBE PEOPLE, IDEAS, INSTITUTIONS AND, CERTAINLY, POLICIES BY CONTRAST, THE ANTIRACIST FORMS TO BE RAISED IN MANY WAYS TO BELIEVE THAT THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH BLACK PEOPLE AS A GROUP AND YOU KNOW WHO TOLD THOSE IDEAS POSSIBLY MORE THAN ANYONE? BLACK PEOPLE >> MISSY ELLIOTT TWEETED I FEEL LIKE I HAVE LEARNED MORE I ABOUT HISTORY IN THE YEAR 2020 THAN EVER

SO MANY STORIES I AM SEEING ON HERE, THEY NEVER TAUGHT ME IN MY HISTORY CLASS THIS TIME ORREALLY MAKES ME REALIZE THAT YWE HAVE TO DO BETTER WITH WHAT WE ARE TEACHING >>> MOST AMERICANS RECOGNIZE THAT RACISM IS OUR ORIGINAL SIN IT IS ONE OF THE PREVAILING DOMINANT FACTORS THAT HAVE SHAPED AMERICANS IF YOU ARE OR EDUCATED IN THIS COUNTRY, WE SHOULD ALL BE EDUCATED IN THE HISTORY AND CULTURES OF ALL THE DIFFERENT GROUPS, AND WE SHOULD CERTAINLY HAVE AN UNDERSTANDING OF RACISM

>> SO IF YOU ARE SITTING SOMEWHERE AND YOU ARE MAD THAT A STATUE IS COMING DOWN, BECAUSE YOU FEEL LIKE WE ARE TRYING TO GET RID OF HISTORY, WHAT WOULD YOU SAY? >> THIS ISN'T ABOUT SOUTHERN TRADITION THIS ISN'T ABOUT SOUTHERN HISTORY THIS IS TABOUT A NATION THAT'S MERGED BECAUSE IT WANTED TO PERPETUATE SLAVERY FOREVER >> IS THERE A PLACE FOR IT? >> IT IS CRITICALLY IMPORTANT FOR US TO DISTINGUISH BETWEEN SOMETHING, A STATUE THAT SHOULD BE MEMORIALIZED IN A CITY SQUARE SO ALL THE WORLD CAN SEE THAT IS HONORING, VERSUS SOMETHING THAT HET IS IN A MUSEUM, THAT WE SEEK TO PLACE THERE SO WE CAN REMEMBER

SO WE NEVER, YOU KNOW, ESSENTIALLY RETURN TO THAT PLACE >> ARE YOU OPTIMISTIC THAT WE'LL SEE REAL CHANGE? ESPECIALLY IAWHEN IT COMES TO POLICIES? SINCE I KNOW THAT IS WHAT YYOU REALLY BELIEVE IS IMPORTANT? >> I'M HOPING THAT PEOPLE RECOGNIZING THE IMPORTANCE OF POLICY CHANGE, AND THAT IS WHERE YOU KNOW, PEOPLE ARE FIGHTING NOT JUST FOR CULTURAL EM CHANGES, NOT JUST FOR CHANGING THEMSELVES BUT CHANGING COMMUNITIES THE WAY WE CHANGE COMMUNITIES IS CHANGING THE POLICIES THAT GOVERN THEM >>> SEEKING POLICY CHANGE

I HAVE NEVER SEEN A CHILDREN'S BOOK WITH THE WORD POLICY IN IT BUT CYHE PUT IT IN THERE, GUYS KIDS CAN HANDLE IT AND IF KIDS HAVE QUESTIONS, IT IS A TOOL KIT TO TALK TO KIDS ABOUT DIFFERENT ISSUES >> NOT ENOUGH TO NOT BE RACIST

THAT IS NOT ENOUGH ANTIRACIST >> I HAVE TO BE HONEST WITH YOU I HADN'T STEVEN HEARD THAT TERM UNTIL RECENTLY WHEN EWE STARTED HAVING THESE DISCUSSIONS

I DIDN'T EVEN N KNOW IT WAS A THING SO WE ARE E ALL LEARNING A LOT ABOUT THIS IN FACT FOR MORE INFORMATION, ON ANTIRACIST, BABY, WE PUT IT ON OUR WEBSITE YOU CAN GO TO THIRD HOUR TODAYCOM

>>> WE ACTUALLY SAW A LARGE CONVOY OF THE NATIONAL GUARD COME THROUGH HERE >> IT IS NEWS, MADE FOR YOUR STREAMING WORLD LIVE WEEKDAYS, STARTING AT 6:00 AM EASTERN

>>> A VIRUS THAT KNOWS NO BORDERS >> A REAL CATASTROPHE, HAPPENING HERE IN BRAZIL BEFORE OUR VERY EYES >> OUR GLOBAL FIGHT AGAINST IT UNITES US >> HERE IN MEXICO CITY, THE PEOPLE I SPOKE WITH SAY IF THEY DON'T WORK THEY WON'T BE ABLE TO FEED THEIR FAMILIES >>> THE SOUTH KOREAN GOVERNMENT IS BRINGING STUDENTS BACK OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF WEEKS IN STAGES

A UNITED PEOPLE, WITH A UNITED FIRST >> THE FUTURE DOESN'T BELONG TO THE FAINT HEART IT BELONGS TO THE GRAVE >>> ALL OF US CAN EXTEND A HAND TO THOSE IN NEED >>> WHAT DO YOU THINK NEEDS TO BE FIXED? AND WHAT WOULD COUNT AS JUSTICE IN THIS CASE? >> DO YOU HAVE CLARITY ON WHAT THE PRESIDENT HAS ACTUALLY ORDERED? I HAVE TO ASK WHETHER THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY CAN TURN THIS AROUND SO THAT THIS IS AN ENGINE FOR PROGRESSIVE POLITICAL CHANGE

>>> PEOPLE ARE NOT SIX FEET APART FROM ONE ANOTHER, FOR THE MOST PART ARE YOU WORRIED IN TERMS OF THE RISK OF TRANSMISSION AFTER THE ONGOING PROTEST? >> MASKS ARE MANDATORY IF YOU ARE OUT IN PUBLIC IN ALABAMA STARTING ON THURSDAY THE GOVERNOR ISSUED THE ORDER AFTER THE STATE REPORTED 40 NEW DEATHS THAT IS A SINGLE DAY RECORD WHAT DID THE GOVERNOR SAY ABOUT HER DECISION TODAY? >> Reporter: HEY, ALLISON

THE GOVERNOR HAD BEEN RESISTANT TO THIS KIND OF ORDER UNTIL TODAY AT THAT PRESS CONFERENCE, SHE SAID THE NUMBERS DON'T LIE AND THE NUMBERS HERE IN ALABAMA HAVE BEEN STAGGERING THEY HAVE BEEN HITTING RECORDS ALMOST EVERY DAY FOR THE LAST COUPLE OF WEEKS, WHEN IT COMES TO CASES, HOSPITALIZATIONS AND DEATHS YESTERDAY A RECORD NUMBER OF HOSPITALIZATIONS, MORE THAN 1300 PATIENTS HOSPITALIZED

AT THAT PRESS CONFERENCE THEY SAID MORE THAN 2100 CASES ACTUALLY OVERNIGHT THAT IS REALLY WHAT LED HER TO MAKE THIS DECISION ALLISON, WHEN YOU LOOK AT A CHART OF HOSPITALIZATIONS HERE, THOSE NUMBERS, THAT CURVE JUST GOES STRAIGHT UP, ESPECIALLY OVER THE LAST COUPLE OF WEEKS THERE HAS BEEN A MORE THAN 50% SURGE IN HOSPITALIZATIONS OVER THE LAST TWO WEEKS AND THE DOCTORS I HAVE BEEN TALKING TO HAVE BEEN EMPHASIZING HOW IMPORTANT MASKS ARE THEY TOLD ME THEY HAVE BEEN HOPING AND ASKING FOR THIS KIND OF ORDER FOR AWHILE NOW AND CONSIDERING THE TRENDS IN ALABAMA RIGHT NOW, IT COULD NOT HAVE COME SOON ENOUGH, ALLISON? >>> THE LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR IS DISAGREEING WITH THIS MASK ORDER

WHY IS THAT? >> YEAH THIS IS NOT THE FIRST TIME THAT HAS HAPPENED HE CAME OUT TODAY AND LET ME JUST READ A QUOTE FROM IT DIRECTLY HE SAID THE MANDATE IS AN OVERSTEP THAT INFRINGES ON THE PROPERTY RIGHTS OF BUSINESS OWNERS AND THE ABILITY OF INDIVIDUALS TO MAKE THEIR OWN HEALTH DECISIONS AND BACK IN APRIL, HE ALSO URGED THE GOVERNOR TO OPEN UP BUSINESSES MORE QUICKLY THAN SHE WAS WILLING TO

SO THOSE TWO HAVE SPLIT IN THESE KINDS OF MATTERS IN THE PAST BUT CERTAINLY ON THIS MESSAGE, HE SEES IT AS A PERSONAL RIGHTS ISSUE, IT SEEMS, ALLISON >>> DOCTOR, WE CAN SEE THE EMERGENCY ROOM SIGNS BEHIND YOU YOU ARE CLEARLY AT A HOSPITAL IN ALABAMA WHAT IS GOING ON THERE? >> Reporter: IN THE POURING RAIN, ALLISON

IT HAS BEEN SOME ALABAMA WEATHER HERE TODAY I MENTIONED THE HOSPITALIZATION RECORDS EARLIER THAT IS COUPLED WITH RECORD LOW ICU CAPACITY RIGHT NOW, ACROSS THE STATE OF ALABAMA, ICUS ARE 85% FULL THERE ARE ONLY ABOUT 253 ICU BEDS AVAILABLE IN THE ENTIRE STATE

AND WHEN IT COMES TO THIS HOSPITAL, I'M GOING TO LET DR LISA WILLIAMS TELL YOU WHAT IS GOING ON TAKE A LISTEN TO WHAT SHE TOLD ME THIS MORNING >> Reporter: HOW MANY ICU BEDS ARE IN THIS HOSPITAL TODAY? >> ZERO CORONAVIRUS HAS NOT GONE AWAY

I WAS, TO BE HONEST WITH YOU, HOPING WE WOULDN'T EVEN BE TALKING ABOUT CORONAVIRUS >> Reporter: ALLISON, DR WILLIAMS ALSO TELLS ME THAT SHE IS STARTING TO SEE YOUNG AND YOUNGER PATIENTS, NOT JUST TEST POSITIVE FOR COVID-19, BUT GET HOSPITALIZED AND NEED INTUBATION SHE SAYS SHE HAS PEOPLE IN THEIR 20s AND 30s IN HER ICU RIGHT NOW SHE HAS PREGNANT WOMEN IN HER ICU, AND SHE IS JUST EMPHASIZING ESPECIALLY TO YOUNGER PEOPLE, WHO MIGHT FEEL INVINCIBLE, THAT THEY ARE NOT, AND THEY COULD WIND UP IN ONE OF THESE ICU BEDS IF THEY ARE NOT MORE CAREFUL

>>> WHAT ELSE ARE DOCTORS, HEALTHCARE WORKERS THERE TELLING YOU ABOUT THE EMOTIONAL STRESS? JUST TRYING TO KEEP UP WITH THE CORONAVIRUS SURGE? >> Reporter: IT HAS BEEN HEARTBREAKING I HAVE HAD A COUPLE OF REALLY, REALLY TOUGH CONVERSATIONS TODAY I HAVE HAD DOCTORS BREAKDOWN IN TEARS BECAUSE THEY AND THEIR STAFF, THEY ARE JUST STRETCHED SO THIN THEY ARE EXHAUSTED THEY ARE EMOTIONAL, BECAUSE ESPECIALLY THE NURSES, THEY ARE TAKING CARE OF THESE PATIENTS 12 HOURS A DAY THEY ARE WITH THEM, WHEN THEIR FAMILY CANNOT BE WITH THEM

THESE PATIENTS ARE ALONE IN SOME OF THEIR DARKEST SHOWERS AND IT IS THESE HEALTHCARE WORKERS THAT ARE WITH THEM THE BIGGEST PROBLEM IS THEY ARE NOT REALLY SEEING THE LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL THE TRENDS ARE SO GRIM AND THEY ARE SEEING THESE RECORDS EVERY SINGLE DAY I WANT YOU TO HEAR FROM DR DAVID THRASHER

THE HEAD OF PULL PULL PULMONOLOGIST >> THE EMOTIONAL TRAUMA ON THESE HEROES HERE, IS TOUGH I GET PRETTY EMOTIONAL ABOUT THIS EXCUSE ME ONE OF OUR GREAT NURSES, BEEN HERE 27 YEARS, BROKE DOWN

SHE SAID I CAN'T TAKE IT ANY MORE >> Reporter: ALLISON, THAT IS STILL SO HARD TO LISTEN TO THEY ARE SEEING WHAT THIS IS DOING TO PEOPLE FIRSTHAND AND WHILE I'M OUT HERE, TALKING TO YOU ABOUT THE NUMBERS, THEY ARE INSIDE THE HOSPITAL RIGHT NOW, TAKING CARE OF THE PATIENTS AND THE WORK THAT THEY ARE DOING, THE CHALLENGE THAT THEY ARE SEEING RIGHT NOW, JUST CANNOT BE OVERSTATED ALLISON? >> YEAH, I JUST, WE TALK ABOUT IT SO MUCH

LIKE YOU SAID BUT I CAN'T IMAGINE WHAT IT IS LIKE TO GO TO WORK EVERY SINGLE DAY, KNOWING THAT YOU MAY LOSE LIVES THAT DAY, KNOWING THE BATTLE HAS NOT GOTTEN BETTER THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR REPORTING PARTICULARLY OUT THERE IN THE POURING RAIN TODAY >>> THANKS, ALLISON

>>> WE HEARD THE WORDS AGAIN AND AGAIN >>> WEARING A MASK >> WEAR A MASK, WEAR A MASK >>> OVER THE LAST FEW MONTHS, COUNTLESS MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS AND GOVERNMENT LEADERS HAVE REPEATED THE PHRASE IN HOPES OF SLOWING THE SPREAD OF COVID- 19

BUT NOT EVERYONE HAS BEEN ON BOARD >> WHEN YOU WEAR A MASK YOU ARE FURTHER PUSHING THE AGENDA THAT KEEPS US LIVING IN A STATE OF TERROR >> I WILL NOT TOLERATE PUTTING A MUZZLE ON ME >>> HOW DID MASKS BECOME A POLITICAL CONTROVERSY? SOME BLAMED THE MIXED MESSAGING AT THE START OF THE PANDEMIC >> THE AVERAGE AMERICAN DOES NOT NEED TO GO OUT AND BUY A MASK

>>> THE SURGEON GENERAL EVEN PLEADED FOR AMERICANS TO STOP BUYING MASKS BACK IN FEBRUARY DOCTORS FOLLOWED OUT, BASED ON THE AVAILABLE EVIDENCE AT THE TIME IF YOU ARE HEALTHY AND WALKING ABOUT, THERE IS REALLY NO NEED TO BE WEARING A MASK >> Reporter: BUT IN APRIL THE CDC UPDATED THEIR GUIDANCE, BELIEVING THEY COULD PREVENT THE SPREAD OF THE VIRUS, AS OPPOSED TO PREVENTING YOU, THE WEARER, FROM GETTING SICK DR

FAUCI EVENTUALLY EXPLAINED THE CHANGE >>> INCLUDING THE N95 OF SURGICAL MASKS, WERE IN VERY SHORT SUPPLY AND WE WANTED TO MAKE SURE THE PEOPLE, NAMELY THE HEALTHCARE WORKERS, WHO DID NOT WANT THEM TO BE WITHOUT THE EQUIPMENT, THAT THEY NEEDED >>> THERE'S MERGING EVIDENCE THAT MASKS ARE HELPFUL FOR EXAMPLE, A RECENT ANALYSIS AND THE STUDIES EXAMINED COVID- 19, SARS AND MERS DESPITE THIS RESEARCH, FACE COVERINGS HAVE BECOME INCREASINGLY PARTISAN, WITH POLLS SUGGESTING THAT DEMOCRATS FAVOR MASKS MORE THAN REPUBLICANS

THAT BEING SAID, OFFICIAL WHITE HOUSE GUIDANCE RECOMMENDS MASKS BUT IT TOOK MONTHS FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP TO WEAR ONE IN PUBLIC AND BEFORE THAT, HE DOWN PLAYED THEIR IMPORTANCE >> I WON'T BE DOING IT, IT IS A RECOMMENDATION CAN YOU TAKE IT OFF? >> I'LL SPEAK LOUDER SIR >> Reporter: INITIALLY THE PRESIDENT'S INDOOR RALLY IN TULSA DIDN'T ENFORCE MASKS, AND NOW LOCAL HEALTH OFFICIALS SAY THAT EVENT AND ITS CORRESPONDING PROTESTS LIKELY LED TO A SURGE IN CASES

FOR THE NEXT RALLY, TRUMP'S CAMPAIGN SAYS THAT FACE MASKS WILL BE QUOTE STRONGLY ENCOURAGED MEANWHILE, OTHER GOP MEMBERS LIKE MITCH MCCONNELL, MARCO RUBIO AND DICK CHENEY HAVE SUPPORTED FACE COVERINGS >> WE ARE PRO TRUMP IF YOU ARE ANTITRUMP YOU ARE MORE LIKELY TO WEAR A MASK I HOPE THE PRESIDENT WILL HELP US GET RID OF THIS MASK POLITICS

>> THIS BITTER DIVIDE ON MASKS HAS LED TO SERIOUS CONSEQUENCES, BEYOND JUST THE SPREAD OF THE VIRUS FOR EXAMPLE, THERE IS A LOT OF MISINFORMATION FLOODING SOCIAL MEDIA WITH SOME MEANS FALSELY CLAIMING MASKS ARE DANGEROUS A SECURITY GUARD AT A DOLLAR STORE IN MICHIGAN WAS KILLED AFTER TELLING A CUSTOMER TO COVER THEIR FACE RECENTLY BOTH REPUBLICAN AND DEMOCRATIC GOVERNORS HAVE ISSUED MANDATORY MASK ORDERS >> I KNOW WEARING A FACE COVERING IS NOT THE CONVENIENT THING TO DO

BUT I ALSO KNOW THAT WEARING A FACE COVERING WILL HELP US KEEP TEXAS OPEN FOR BUSINESS >> THERE COULD BE MORE OF THESE ORDERS TO COME >>> SO ALTHOUGH THE MESSAGING HAS BEEN MESSY, THE FACTS SUGGEST MASKS COULD HELP SLOW THE SPREAD OF THE VIRUS FOR BOTH REPUBLICANS, DEMOCRATS, AND EVERY AMERICAN IN BETWEEN >>> PATIENTS WHO THOUGHT THEY HAD RECOVERED FROM THE CORONAVIRUS ARE TESTING POSITIVE AGAIN JUST WEEKS LATER IT IS RAISING QUESTIONS ABOUT WHETHER PEOPLE CAN GET RE INFECTED AND HOW LONG THEIR ANTIBODIES CAN LAST

WE SPOKE WITH SOME OF THOSE PATIENTS WHAT DID THEY TELL YOU? AND WHAT ARE DOCTORS SAYING ABOUT THESE CASES? >> Reporter: YEAH THESE ARE PATIENTS WHO WERE DIAGNOSED WITH COVID-19 BACK IN MARCH FOR WHATEVER REASON, THEY HAD TO GET TESTED AGAIN >>> ONE WOMAN, FOR EXAMPLE, SHE IS A NURSE SHE HAD TO HAVE TWO NEGATIVE TESTS BEFORE SHE WAS ABLE TO GO BACK TO WORK

THEY HAD THOSE NEGATIVE TESTS BUT THEN, LATER ON, IN JUNE, TESTED POSITIVE AGAIN AND IT IS REALLY NOT CLEAR WHAT IS HAPPENING SO FAR THERE IS A LOT OF ANECDOTAL REPORTS OF THIS HAPPENING EITHER THEY HAVE FALSE NEGATIVE TESTS OR MAYBE THE FIRST VIRUS WAS HIDING SOMEWHERE IN THEIR SYSTEM, YOU KNOW, UNDETECTED, BEFORE REIGNITING AGAIN AND TURNING INTO ANOTHER INFLAMMATORY PROCESS, OR THEY TRULY WERE INFECTED A SECOND TIME

WHICH WOULD BE SURPRISING BECAUSE IT WAS ASSUMED THAT AT LEAST, FOR A CERTAIN PERIOD OF TIME, PATIENTS WHO HAD COVID-19, WERE PROTECTED, BECAUSE THEY HAD BUILT-UP ANTIBODIES TO THAT VIRUS, ALLISON? >> ERICA DO RESEARCHERS HAVE A SENSE OF HOW LONG ANTIBODIES CAN LAST AND WHETHER IT IS THE SAME OR VARIES AMONG PEOPLE? I FEEL LIKE WE ARE SO UNSURE OF WHAT IT MEANS TO HAVE ANTIBODIES AND HOW LONG THAT COULD POTENTIALLY PROTECT YOU >> RIGHT THAT IS A TOUGH QUESTION OF COURSE, WE ARE ONLY SIX MONTHS INTO THIS PANDEMIC AND DOCTORS ARE, OF COURSE, DISCOVERING HOW THE VIRUS ACTS IN REALTIME, LEARNING AS THEY GO

HISTORICALLY, CORONAVIRUS AND ANTIBODIES DO OFFER SOME LEVEL OF PROTECTION FOR A CERTAIN PERIOD OF TIME NOW STUDIES COMING OUT SAYING PEOPLE WITH COVID-19 ANTIBODIES MAY ONLY HAVE THEM FOR 60 TO 90 DAYS AFTER INFECTION OF COURSE THAT IS TERRIFYING TO PEOPLE WHO HAVE HAD COVID-19 THEY HAVE BEEN SICK THEY DON'T WANT TO GET SICK AGAIN

IT IS QUITE FRIGHTENING ALLISON >> WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT THAT, IF THE ANTIBODIES DON'T LAST LONGER THAN THAT, IF PEOPLE CAN GET INFECTED MORE THAN ONCE, WHAT DOES THAT MEAN FOR VACCINE? FOR THE CONCEPT OF HERD IMMUNITY? IT SEEMS LIKE THIS COULD HAVE A MUCH LARGER IMPACT >> RIGHT FOR HERD IMMUNITY, YOU WOULD NEED TO HAVE ABOUT 60% OF THE POPULATION IMMUNE TO A CERTAIN VIRUS BEFORE IT WOULD OFFER THAT OVERALL COMMUNITY PROTECTION THAT WE ARE TALKING ABOUT

IF IMMUNITY IS FADING SO FAST IN PEOPLE YOU CAN THROW THAT CONCEPT OF HERD IMMUNITY RIGHT OUT THE WINDOW VACCINE, SORT OF THE SAME IDEA IF INFECTIONS CAN'T OFFER LASTING PROTECTION, IT IS UNCLEAR HOW LONG A VACCINE MADE IN THE LAB WOULD ALSO OFFER PROTECTION TO THE POPULATION THERE IS QUESTIONS ABOUT WHETHER YOU WOULD NEED BOOSTERS TO THE VACCINE HOW MANY BOOSTERS? WHEN YOU WOULD NEED TO ADMINISTER

THERE ARE SO MANY UNANSWERED QUESTIONS THERE IS A LOT OF PROMISING VACCINE RESEARCH COMING OUT IT IS STILL EARLY IT IS PROMISING BUT IT IS GOING TO BE SEVERAL MORE MONTHS, MAYBE EARLY NEXT YEAR BEFORE WE HAVE ALL THE ANSWERS TO THOSE QUESTIONS, ALLISON? >> YEAH, WE STILL HAVE SO MUCH TO LEARN HERE, ERICA EDWARDS, THANKS SO MUCH FOR YOUR REPORTING

>>> THANK YOU >>> AMONG THE CHAOS, I'M A FATHER TRYING TO TEACH HIS SON ABOUT PEACE >> WE RETALIATE WITH LOVE THAT IS WHY WE ARE DOWN HERE THERE IS ALWAYS ANOTHER WAY

THAT IS ALL I WANT HIM TO SEE >>> WHEN YOU NEED BRUTAL HONESTY >> THIS ISN'T ABOUT DONALD TRUMP THIS IS ABOUT 400 YEARS OF RACISM >> WHEN YOU NEED ANSWERS FIRST THING IN THE MORNING

>> WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE TO MAKE BALLOTS READY TO GO FOR THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION IN NOVEMBER >>> THEN YOU NEED TO GO DEEP INSIDE THE STORY >> WHAT IS A POLICY CHANGE IN POLICING YOU WOULD LIKE TO SEE ENACTED >>> HE IS WHO IS TELLING THE TRUTH AND WHO IS LYING EVERY DAY THAT IS THE NEWS STORY AMERICANS WANT TO HEAR

>> WE'D LIKE TO SAY WE ARE REMINDED, TIME AND TIME AGAIN, WE DO NOT >> I REACHED OUT TO YOU AFTER I WATCHED THE MAYOR OF ATLANTA ACT AS A MOM TRYING TO RAISE HER SON AND I THINK ABOUT HER COMING HOME SAYING WHY DON'T I HAVE A PONYTAIL LIKE THE WHITE GIRLS IT IS OKAY TO KNOW YOU ARE DIFFERENT JUST NOT LESS THAN

>>> I CHERISH THE FACT THAT WE CAN HAVE THESE DISCUSSIONS I FEEL SAFE TALKING ABOUT THIS, WITH YOU GUYS >>> YOU ARE WATCHING NBC NEWS NOW >>> WE HAVE SOME BREAKING NEWS >>> WE ACTUALLY SAW A LARGE CONVOY OF THE NATIONAL GUARD COME THROUGH HERE

>>> ALL OF US CAN EXTEND A HAND TO THOSE IN NEED >>> WHAT DO YOU THINK NEEDS TO BE FIXED? AND WHAT WOULD COUNT AS JUSTICE IN THIS CASE? >>> DO YOU HAVE CLARITY ON WHAT THE PRESIDENT HAS ACTUALLY ORDERED? >> I HAVE TO ASK WHETHER THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY CAN TURN THIS AROUND, SO THIS IS AN ENGINE FOR PROGRESSIVE POLITICAL CHANGE >> PEOPLE ARE NOT SIX FEET APART FROM ONE ANOTHER FOR THE MOST PART ARE YOU WORRIED THIS MAY DOVETAIL IN THE RISK OF PROTESTS >>> WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO REOPEN SCHOOLS IN THE U

S? WE STILL DON'T KNOW BUT WE MIGHT GET A BETTER IDEA FROM LOOKING AT ISRAEL SCHOOLS STARTED OPENING SLOWLY THERE BACK IN EARLY MAY BUT BY THE MIDDLE OF THAT MONTH, THE PRIME MINISTER WAS OPENING UP JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING, AND CASES THERE SHOT UP

NBC NEWS FARM CORRESPOND DEBIT MOLLY HUNTER TAKES A CLOSER LOOK AT WHAT WENT WRONG >> HEY, ALLISON THAT'S RIGHT AT THE BEGINNING ISRAEL APPEARED TO HAVE IT ALL TOGETHER THEY WERE ONE OF THE FIRST COUNTRIES TO SUCCESSFULLY LOCKDOWN, TO SHUT BORDERS, START TESTING EARLIER

AND THEY GOT THEIR CASE COUNT SO LOW THAT BY THE END OF APRIL, EARLY MAY, THEY STARTED TO TALK ABOUT REOPENING SCHOOLS IN EARLY MAY THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT THEY DID FOR SOME OF THE YOUNGEST STUDENTS THEY STARTED IN PODS >> MY 9-YEAR-OLD BOY STARTING IN EARLY MAY IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL THEY SEPARATED THE CLASS AND WE SHOULD REMEMBER THE CLASSES IN ISRAEL ARE VERY CROWDED

WITH NEARLY 40 STUDENTS IN A CLASS 35 TO 40 STUDENTS SO THEY WERE SEPARATED INTO CAPSULES NO MORE THAN 20 STUDENTS, AND FIRST THROUGH THIRD GRADE >> Reporter: PROFESSOR LEVINE HAS KIDS

HE SENT THEM BACK ISRAEL BLESSED WITH GREAT WEATHER A LOT OF THE YEAR THEY STARTED TO HAVE CLASSES OUTDOORS AND HE SAID SO FAR IT WAS GOING WELL, AND NO BIG RISE IN INFECTIONS FROM THOSE CAPSULE CLASSES NOW MAY 17th ROLLS AROUND, MID MAY, AND THE GOVERNMENT DECIDES TO SEND EVERYONE BACK TO SCHOOL

SUDDENLY US CAPSULES OF THE YOUNGER KIDS AND ALSO AROUND THAT TIME, BARS, RESTAURANTS, CAFES, COFFEE SHOPS, GYMS, POOLS, NIGHTCLUBS, THE GOVERNMENT DECIDES TO OPEN UP ISRAEL AND PRIME MINISTER NETANYAHU DECLARED VICTORY, ESSENTIALLY OVER THE CORONAVIRUS AND TOLD ISRAELIS TO GO OUT AND ENJOY THEMSELVES AND THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT THEY DID, ALLISON I WANT TO LOOK AT THE GRAPH OF THE CASES BY LATE MAY WHEN YOU SAW SOME OF THE FIRST SCHOOL CLOSURES THE CASES START TO TICK UP EARLY JUNE WE SAW SOME OF THE BIGGEST SCHOOL OUTBREAKS

THERE WAS ONE WHERE MORE THAN 130 KIDS GOT SICK THERE A COUPLE OF OTHER SCHOOLS SHUT DOWN SHORTLY THEREAFTER IN EARLY JUNE THE CASES REALLY START TO TICK UP IT IS NOT CLEAR SPEAKING WITH PROFESSOR LEVINE TODAY IS HOW THOSE CASES GOT INTO THE SCHOOL >> HOW MANY PARENTS GOT INFECTED FROM THEIR CHILDREN, WHO GOT INFECTED IN SCHOOL? THAT IS VERY IMPORTANT

>> WE DON'T HAVE THAT DATA ANYWHERE? >> WE DON'T HAVE THAT DATA BUT AGAIN, AGAIN, MY SUGGESTED STRATEGY IS NOT TO LOOK FOR COMPLETE LOCKDOWN, NOT TO LOOK FOR COMPLETE STOP OF LIFE THAT IS WHAT HAPPENED IN ISRAEL WE WENT FROM ONE EXTREME TO THE OTHER EXTREME VERY FAST HIS BIG TAKE AWAY IS ISRAEL DID IT WAY TOO FAST

NOW THEY ARE SEEING CASES GO UP WAY TOO FAR WE HAVE BEEN TALKING EVERY COUNTRY IS DIFFERENT DEMOGRAPHICALLY BIG CITIES, SMALL TOWNS IN ISRAEL, THESE FAMILIES HAVE A LOT OF KIDS HE NOTED THAT MOST FAMILIES HAVE MORE KIDS THAN, SAY, AMERICAN FAMILIES

YOU ALSO HAVE A LOT OF FAMILIES WHO LIVE MULTI- GENERATIONALLY SUDDENLY IF KIDS ARE GOING BACK TO SCHOOL, THEY ARE COMING HOME TO PARENTS, AND MAYBE GRANDPARENTS AND COUSINS THE BIG LESSON IS NOT TO BRING THE KIDS HOME FROM SCHOOL AND LET THEM SEE THEIR GRANDPARENTS HE CAN DID HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF ADVICE >> DON'T RUSH IT

HAVE A CLEAR PLAN START SPECIFIC WITH THE LOW GRADES EVALUATE ALL THE TIME >> Reporter: THE MOST IMPORTANT THING HE SAID IS REALLY TO ALLOW YOURSELF TO LEARN FROM THE DATA SO OPEN UP SLOWLY, THEN LEARN BEFORE GOING TO THE NEXT STEP

AFTER OF RIGHT NOW, THERE ARE SUMMER SCHOOLS OPEN FOR SOME OF THE YOUNGEST KIDS IN ISRAEL IN SEPTEMBER THEY ARE EXPECTING, AT LEAST ACCORDING TO THE GOVERNMENT, TO OPEN UP FULL CAPACITY BUT RIGHT NOW HE EPIDEMIOLOGYIOLOGIS LOOKING AT NUMBERS CLIMBING RIGHT NOW, THAT LOOKS UNLIKELY >>> WITH THE END OF HONG KONG'S SPECIAL ECONOMIC STATUS WITH THE US

, AT A RAMBLING PRESS CONFERENCE, PRESIDENT TRUMP ANNOUNCED HE HAD ISSUED AN EXECUTIVE ORDER TO STRIP HONG KONG OF THE PREFERENTIAL TREATMENT IT HAS HAD FOR YEARS BASICALLY ANY EXPORTS FROM THERE DIDN'T GET WITH THE SORT OF TARIFFS PLACED ON GOODS MADE IN CHINA IT IS A BIG DEAL, ECONOMICALLY AND SYMBOLICALLY THE US

MADE THE MOVE BECAUSE OF THE NEW NATIONAL SECURITY LAW IN HONG KONG IMPOSED BY CHINA'S GOVERNMENT THAT MAKES IT A CRIME TO PROTEST FOR INDEPENDENCE PRESIDENT TRUMP ALSO SIGNED LEGISLATION THAT WAS ADOPTED BY CONGRESS BACK IN MAY TO IMPOSE SANCTIONS ON OFFICIALS OR BUSINESSES OR INSTITUTIONS THAT HAVE JEOPARDIZED OR UNDERMINED HONG KONG'S AUTONOMY HERE IN BEIJING, IT WASN'T TOTALLY UNEXPECTED THERE HAVE BEEN SANCTIONS AND THREATS FLYING BACK AND FORTH FOR WEEKS

SO IN A WAY, OFFICIALS HERE WERE PREPARED FOR THIS CHINA'S FOREIGN MINISTRY CALLED IT GROSS INTERFERENCE IN CHINA'S INTERNAL AFFAIRS THE GOVERNMENT SAYS VOWING RETALIATION, BUT MAYBE SANCTIONS ON US OFFICIALS OR TOUGHER TIMES FOR AMERICAN COMPANIES THAT RELY ON CHINA'S SUPPLY CHAIN

WONG RUNS A THINK TANK THAT ADVISES CHINESE OFFICIALS >> IT IS PROBABLY YOU KNOW, THE STRATEGY OF THE ADMINISTRATION IS THAT THE COMING UP OF ONE OTHER MATTER MOVE TO BACK CHINA, BECAUSE IT IS ELECTION SEASON WHAT CAN WE DO TO HANDLE THIS COVID-19 DISASTER IN THE US? THE FIRST IS GET THE ATTENTION OFF THAT

>> Reporter: IT IS SAFE TO SAY THE US AND CHINA ARE CLASHING OVER A LOT THESE DAYS HONG KONG, THE SOUTH CHINA SEA, CORONAVIRUS, TRADE, WAWAY PEOPLE ARE USING PHRASES LIKE NEW COLD WAR AND IT DOESN'T APPEAR EITHER SIDE WILL BACK DOWN

AT THE TIME, WE THOUGHT THE GREAT RECESSION WAS A ONCE IN A GENERATION HELP MAYBE ONCE IN A CENTURY ECONOMIC DISASTER AS ANXIOUS AND UNSETTLED AS MAYBE I HAVE EVER FELT, >> HOW AM I GO HE GO TO MAKE ENOUGH TO FEEL COMFORTABLE? OR TO MAKE ENDS MEET AT THAT POINT >> FELT REALLY BETRAYED BY THE SYSTEM

>> MANY OF US HAVEN'T GOTTEN OVER IT >> I HAD THIS IDEA AND DREAM OR VISION OF WHERE MY LIFE WAS GOING TO GO AND I HAD TO PUT IT ON HOLD BECAUSE THERE WEREN'T JOBS OUT THERE >>> I STILL HAVEN'T RECOVERED FROM 2008

>> RECESSIONS, WHILE TERRIBLE FOR MOST EVERYONE, ARE PARTICULARLY AWFUL FOR THOSE JUST ENTERING THE JOB MARKET >> THIS GENERATION DID, YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE ONGOING PROBLEMS >> RIGHT AS SOME OF US MILLENNIALS WERE FINALLY GETTING BACK ON OUR FEET, BAM, THE PANDEMIC >> I THINK IT IS FAIR TO SAY IT COULDN'T HAVE COME AT A WORSE TIME FOR THEM >> WE ARE HAVING TO CONFRONT AN UGLY TRUTH

MY GENERATION WILL BE WORSE OFF THAN MY PARENTS AND GRANDPARENTS WERE NOT BECAUSE OF ANYTHING WE DID OR DIDN'T DO, BUT SIMPLY BECAUSE WE WERE BORN IN THE I DON'T THINK YEARS >> ONCE OUR PARENTS TOLD US WHAT OUR ADULT LIFE SHOULD BE, IT JUST DIDN'T WORK OUT >> THIS IS THINK AGAIN, WITH ME, ANDREW STERN, WHERE I TAKE YOU EVERY STEP OF THE WAY AS I DIP INTO COMPLEX, CONTROVERSIAL TOPICS THAT MAKE US WONDER, DO WE NEED TO THINK AGAIN? >>> UNLESS YOU HAVE A PRIVATE YACHT TO ESCAPE TO, THIS PANDEMIC HAS BEEN EXCRUCIATING FOR JUST ABOUT EVERYONE IT IS TOO EARLY TO KNOW WHICH GENERATIONS WILL BE MOST INJURED BY THIS

THAT WILL TAKE YEARS TO SORT OUT BUT ONE THG WE DO KNOW IS THE 1, 2 PUNCH OF THE GREAT RECESSION FOLLOWED BY COVID-19 IN THE SPAN OF 11 YEARS IS AN ECONOMIC CHALLENGE DIFFERENT FROM ANYTHING WE HAVE SEEN BEFORE AND A STATE WOULD HAVE IT THE TIMING IS UNIQUELY BAD FOR MY AGE GROUP >> MILLENNIALS HAVE LOWER RATES OF EMPLOYMENT OVERALL

THEY HAVE LOWER EARNINGS, LOWER SAVINGS AND THEN, LAYERED ON TOP OF THAT, THEY HAVE DEBT WHICH, OF COURSE, IS DEEPLY RELATED TO THAT LOWER UNEMPLOYMENT AND LOWER EARNINGS, THAT THEY CARRY WITH THEM OVER TIME AND THEY ARE CARRYING ALL OF THAT INTO THIS PARTICULAR ECONOMIC CRISIS >>> THE AMERICAN DREAM IS BUILT ON THE PROMISE EACH GENERATION BUILDS UPON THE PREVIOUS ONE AND QUALITY OF LIFE IMPROVES STEADILY FOR AS FAR BACK AS U

S CENSUS DATA GOES, THAT HAS BEEN TRUE HOUSEHOLD WAGES HAVE RISE RISEN, RELATIVE TO PREVIOUS GENERATIONS >> THAT IS UNTIL GEN X HANDED THE BATON TO US >> WE ARE EARNING LESS THAN THE PREVIOUS GENERATIONS, BUT WHY? WE ARE THE MOST DIVERSE, MOST EDUCATED, MOST PRODUCTIVE GENERATION IN AMERICAN HISTORY

BUT FROM AN ECONOMIC STANDPOINT WE COULD NOT HAVE BEEN DEALT A WORSE HAND TWICE AS I LEARNED FROM THE EXPERTS, IT ALL HAS TO DO WITH TIMING >> WHEN A RECESSION HAPPENS, THE IMPACTS ARE OFTEN UNEVEN THESE COHORTS WERE COMING OF AGE DURING ECONOMIC DOWN TURNS, UNFORTUNATELY, EXPERIENCED REALLY, REALLY STRONG NEGATIVE ECONOMIC IMPACT

THEY COME OUT TO A VERY DIFFICULT LABOR MARKET, AND IT IS HARD TO GET A GOOD FIRST JOB AND MAYBE HARD TO GET A JOB AT ALL BUT IF THEY DO GET A JOB, THEY ARE LIKELY TO GET A JOB THAT IS MAYBE LOWER PAY AND LOWER QUALITY THAN THE JOB THAT THEY WOULD HAVE GOTTEN HAD THEY GRADUATED A BIT EARLIER >> IN 2008, 9 OR 10, I THINK MOST OF US WERE HAPPY TO HAVE A LOUSY FIRST JOB, AS LONG AS WE HAD ONE WHAT I DIDN'T REALIZE, AT THE TIME, THOUGH, IS THAT THAT FIRST JOB HAS MAJOR IMPACTS THAT RIPPLE OUT ACROSS YOUR ENTIRE CAREER

>> IT IS TRUE THAT, THE TRAJECTORY OF YOUR ECONOMIC FUTURE AND YOUR LIFE IS ALTERED, PERMANENTLY THE FIRST JOB THAT YOU GET, SETS YOU UP FOR THE SECOND JOB, WHICH SETS YOU UP FOR THE THIRD JOB, RIGHT? SO WHERE YOU START IN THAT CAREER TRAJECTORY REALLY MATTERS >>> I CHECKED IN WITH HALF A DOZEN OF SO WITH MY FELLOW MILLENNIALS SOME I KNEW, SOME I DIDN'T THEIR EXPERIENCES BORE THAT OUT ACROSS- THE-BOARD

>> I EITHER HAD TO PREPARE MYSELF FOR A LONG STRETCH OF NOT WORKING WHEN I GRADUATED IN 2010 OR TRYING TO SCRAP FOR ANYTHING POSSIBLE AT THAT POINT >> I REMEMBER BEING FRIENDS WITH SENIORS GETTING READY TO GRADUATE THEY WERE PANICKED THAT THEY COULDN'T FIND JOBS SO THEY EITHER HAD TO WORK FOR FREE OR WORK IN A DIFFERENT INDUSTRY AND THE SAME THING HAPPENED TO ME WHEN I FINALLY FINISHED COLLEGE IN 2010

>> THE LEGAL MARKET IS COMPLETELY, IT WENT FROM JOBS EVERYWHERE AT HIGH PAY TO THERE AREN'T ANY JOBS SEASONED ATTORNEYS DON'T HAVE WORK NEW ATTORNEYS CAN'T GET WORK AND IT WAS JUST CHAOS >> THAT WAS THE FIRST TIME THAT I EVER REMEMBER BATTLING SOMETHING THAT SOUNDED LIKE DEPRESSION OR ANXIETY

I WAS 30 POUNDS HEAVIER THAN I AM NOW AND HAD HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE AT THE AGE OF 27 I REMEMBER THE MENTAL AND THE PHYSICAL TOLL THAT IT TOOK WAS PRETTY PROFOUND DRAMATICALLY MORE EXPENSIVE, TWICE AS MUCH AND FOR MANY, STARTING SALARIES WERE LOWER THAN WHAT YOU WOULD EXPECT WITH MILLENNIALS EARNING 20% LESS THAN BABY BOOMERS DID AT THE SAME AGE WE CAN'T BUY A HOUSE AND ARE LESS ABLE TO SAVE FOR A RAINY DAY WE HESITATED TO GET MARRIED OR HAVE KIDS AND IN 1965, THE TYPICAL AMERICAN FIRST MARRIED AROUND 22 YEARS OF AGE AND BY 2017, IT WAS CLOSER TO 28 THE AVERAGE AGE OF FIRST-TIME PARENTS WAS ABOUT 24 YEARS OLDER NOW, 28

5 EVERYTHING WAS DELAYED AT BEST, OR IMPOSSIBLE, AT WORST >> THEY ARE NOT MAKING MORE THAN THEIR PARENTS THEY HAVE A COMPARISON AND THEY WILL FALL SHORT >> IT'S A SITUATION WHERE THEY ARE BEING RESPONSIBLE AND THEIR ACTIONS ARE CAUSING ACTIONS IN WHICH THEY FIND THEMSELVES BUT IT WAS DECISIONS AT A HIGHER LEVEL

>> WE GOT DEALT A CRAPPY HAND AND OUR TIMING WAS MONUMENTALLY UNLUCKY THERE WAS LITTLE WE COULD DO ABOUT IT FOR MOST OF US, COMPLETELY CHANGED OUR MINDSET AND OUTLOOK FOR THE FUTURE >> MILLENNIALS THAT CAME OF AGE DURING THE ECONOMIC DOWNTURN THINK DIFFERENTLY ABOUT THE ECONOMY AND ARE PESSIMISTIC ABOUT THEIR FUTURE IT'S THEIR FUTURE CHANCE OF SUCCESS AND THE LIKELY THEY WILL BE HAPPY AND THAT THEY WILL RETIRE SOMEDAY

>> IS THE COUNTRY AND OUR POLICIES WORKING FOR YOU? DO YOU FEEL LIKE YOU WERE SET OUT FOR SUCCESS IN THE MODERN ECONOMY IN AMERICA? >> IF YOU WERE TO ASK ME A COUPLE OF MONTHS AGO, I WOULD SAY, HELL YES BUT NOW, I DON'T THINK SO >> THOSE TWO EVENTS, THE RELATIVELY CLOSE PROXIMITY OF TIME BETWEEN THE TWO HAVE SHAKEN A LOT OF CONFIDENCE THAT I HAVE IN THE FUNDAMENTALS OF OUR SYSTEM >> I FELT BETRAYED BY THE SYSTEM, EVEN THOUGH I WAS COMPLYING FOR WHAT IS LEGITIMATE IN THE SYSTEM >> THESE FEELINGS OF ANGST AND INSECURITY TRANSLATE TO US TAKING FEWER RISKS

WE ARE LESS LIKELY TO START A BUSINESS, BUY A HOUSE OR HAVE KIDS THE NORMAL THINGS THAT POWERED THE ECONOMY AND IT IS A PIPE DREAM FOR SO MANY OF US AND THAT WAS BEFORE COVID WITH THE 1-2 PUNCH >> PEOPLE ARE GETTING BACK ONTO A CAREER TRAJECTORY THEY EXPECTED TO BE ON FIVE YEARS AGO, THEY ARE GETTING HIT AGAIN AND THAT 1- 2 PUNCH IS SOMETHING WE NEVER EXPERIENCED AND LIKELY TO HAVE A DEVASTATING ECONOMIC IMPACT FOR THIS GENERATION >> THE STABILITY I WAS FIGHTING TO GET, I COULD FINALLY GET IT WHEN I TURNED 30 AND I BELIEVED THAT WHEN I TURNED 30 AND WHEN THE PANDEMIC HAPPENED, FOR IT TO STOP AND BE STALLED IS PRETTY TRAUMATIC I DON'T KNOW WHERE TO GO FROM HERE

IT'S ALWAYS BEEN LIKE A PUNCH IN THE FACE EVERY COUPLE OF YEARS >> HILLARY IS STILL WAITING ON UNEMPLOYMENT CHECKS AND DEREK HAD COVID-19 AND AFTER 10 DAYS FIGHTING IT, RECOVERED AND WENT TO WORK AND WAS LAID OFF A COUPLE OF DAYS LATER >> WHEN WILL IT COME DOWN AND WILL IT COME DOWN? IT CAME DOWN HARD >> BROOKS HAS A ONE-YEAR CONTRACT WILL'S DEEP CUTS HIT HIGHER EDUCATION? ROBBIE WAS SCARRED AND CHOSE A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT AREA OF LAW TO PRACTICE, SPECIFICALLY SO HE COULD WEATHER A RECESSION

>> I HAVEN'T RECOVERED FROM 2008 I'M LOST OF WHERE I'M AT NOW >> WHEN I ASKED MY LARGER FRIEND GROUP ABOUT PLANS FOR GETTING MARRIED, BUYING A HOUSE OR HAVING A KID, MANY OF THEM STRAIGHT UP LAUGHED AT ME AND WHEN ASKED ABOUT THEIR OUTLOOK FOR THE FUTURE, NONE OF THEM WERE OUTRIGHT OPTIMISTIC IT'S PARTLY WHY MEDICARE-FOR-ALL , CANCELING STUDENT LOAN DEBT AND OTHER BIG STRUCTURAL CHANGES PROPOSED BY POLITICIANS LIKE BERNIE SANDERS AND ELIZABETH WARREN AND AOC RESONATE WITH YOUNG FOLKS THEY ARE THE ONES WHERE THE SYSTEM ISN'T WORKING

>> MOST HAVEN'T FARED WELL AS THE AMERICAN AFFECT I THINK THIS HAS BEEN A CHANGE IN THAT SENSIBILITY AND A GREATER RECOGNITION THAT SOME OF THE PROBLEMS THIS GENERATION HAS BEEN EXPERIENCING ARE NOT LIMITED TO INDIVIDUAL PAY RAISES, BUT SYSTEMIC THINGS >> FOR THE ECONOMIC DOWNTURN, THEY WILL BELIEVE THAT ECONOMIC SUCCESS IS THE RESULT OF LUCK RATHER THAN HARD WORK >> THE PROBLEMS ARE REACHING SUCH A LEVEL THAT IT'S HARD TO SEE YOURSELF AS THE ONLY PERSON WHO HAS THIS PARTICULAR SITUATION IT'S THE SAME SITUATION IN WHICH YOU SEE YOUR FRIENDS AND RELATIVES

RE IS SO NEWS ON THE SEARCH FOR A >>> NEW OPTIMISM IN THE RACE TO DEVELOP A VACCINE THE PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANY, ASTRAZENECA, EXPECTED TO RELEASE EARLY DATA FROM THE HUMAN TRIALS IN THE COMING DAYS AND THE NATION'S TOP INFECTIOUS DISEASE EXPERT, DR ANTHONY FAUCI, TELLS REUTERS HE FEELS GOOD ABOUT THE GOAL OF A VACCINE BY THE END OF THE YEAR HE TOUTS EARLY RESULTS FROM MODERNA, A COMPANY CURRENTLY DEVELOPING A VACCINE AND PREPARING TO ENTER THE FINAL TESTING PHASE IN THE NEXT TWO WEEKS FAUCI ALSO RESPONDED TO AN EFFORT BY SOME IN THE WHITE HOUSE TO UNDERMINE HIS CREDIBILITY

DOCTORS SAY TO LISTEN TO THIS

A COSTLY REDESIGN FOR THE AC SYSTEM TO FORCE COOL AIR THROUGH ADVANCED FILTERS IS AN OPTION BUT RESEARCH FOUND THAT UV LIGHTS CAN KILL VIRUSES THE ULTRAVIOLET LIGHTS ARE COMMONLY HIDDEN IN HOSPITAL CEILINGS >> YOU HAVE TO HAVE THE ULTRAVIOLET LIGHT IN THE UPPER PART OF THE ROOM AND IT WILL SANITIZE THE AIR VERY FAST >> Reporter: AIR CONDITIONING IS THE NEW HOT TOPIC IN THIS CONFOUNDING PANDEMIC

WE HAVE INVESTIGATOR AND CONSUMER CORRESPONDENT, VICKY NGUYEN TO WALK US THROUGH SOME OF THE BIG QUESTIONS GOOD TO SEE YOU >> GREAT TO SEE YOU

>> THE THING IS, YOU WANT TO BE HEALTHY AND TO MAKE SURE YOU ARE OKAY AND YOU WANT TO CORONAVIRUS TEST WHO PAYS FOR THAT? DO YOU PAY FOR IT? WHAT'S THE DEAL? >> YOU SHOULD NOT HAVE TO PAY FOR IT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT HAS TWO POTS FROM THE CORONAVIRUS RESPONSE ACT AND THE CA

RES ACT, THE IDEA IS FOR A DIAGNOSTIC TEST OR THE ANTIBODY TEST TO BE COVERED AT NO COST TO YOU LET'S SAY YOU'VE ALREADY GOTTEN A TEST AND YOU PAY FOR IT

NOW IS THE TIME TO FILE A CLAIM FOR REIMBURSEMENT FROM YOUR INSURANCE COMPANY IF YOU DON'T HAVE INSURANCE, YOU CAN ASK A PROVIDER IF THEY CAN BUILD THE CARE

S ACT PROVIDER RELIEF FUND AND YOU CAN CHECK WITH YOUR PUBLIC HEALTH DEPARTMENT THEY ARE OFFERING FREE TESTS ALL OVER THE COUNTRY AND YOU MAY RUN INTO SOME SERIOUS LINES IF YOU DON'T HAVE INSURANCE, CHECK WITH YOUR COMMUNITY HEALTH CLINIC >> UNFORTUNATELY, IF YOU GET ILL AND HOSPITALIZED, WHAT DO YOU NEED TO KNOW AND TO BE AWARE OF? >> IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT TO DESIGNATE SOMEONE WHO WILL BE AN ADVOCATE FOR YOU IF YOU ARE THE PATIENT AND SOMEONE IN YOUR FAMILY IS SICK, YOU MAY TAKE ON THAT RESPONSIBILITY AND HALF OF THEM

YOU MAY GO TO A HOSPITAL IN YOUR INSURANCE NETWORK, BUT THE DOCTORS THAT TREAT YOU MAY NOT BE IN NETWORK AND THAT CAN BE STICKY ASK THOSE QUESTIONS UP FRONT THERE IS A POSSIBILITY THAT THEY WILL CHARGE YOU IN-NETWORK PRICES FOR THE OUT-OF-NETWORK DOCTOR YOU HAVE TO ASK IT DOESN'T HAPPEN AUTOMATICALLY

ASK IF THEY ACCEPT YOUR INSURANCE OR WILL GIVE YOU A DISCOUNT OR PAYMENT PLAN AND YOU NEED TO MAKE SURE THE DOCTORS THAT TREAT YOU PARTICIPATE IN THE PROVIDER RELIEF FUND BECAUSE THAT WILL RESULT IN A LOWER COST FOR YOU >> IF YOU GET OUT AND THE BILL'S ROLE IN, WHAT DO YOU LOOK OUT FOR AND WHAT IF YOU THINK THIS ISN'T RIGHT? >> THIS IS IMPORTANT YOU WANT THAT EXPLANATION OF BENEFITS, THE EOB COMPARE THAT FORM TO YOUR ACTUAL BILL AND ALL OF THESE TREATMENTS THAT YOU RECEIVED BECAUSE THOSE AREN'T PERFECT LOOK AT THAT AS A STARTING POINT FOR NEGOTIATING THE PRICE OF WHAT YOU EVENTUALLY WE'LL PAY AND MAKE SURE THAT YOU REACH OUT TO THE PATIENT ADVOCATE THAT MOST HOSPITALS HAVE

THERE WILL BE CONTACT INFORMATION AT THE BOTTOM OF THE EXPLANATION OF BENEFITS FORM AND IT'S IMPORTANT TO MAINTAIN COMMUNICATIONS IF YOU CAN PAY BUT NOT RIGHT NOW, TALK ABOUT A PAYMENT PLAN THE LAST THING YOU WANT IS TO HAVE IT SENT TO COLLECTIONS HAVE THAT CONVERSATION, BE ON TOP OF IT AND DOCUMENT EVERYTHING WHO YOU SPOKE TO, THE TIME AND THE DATE AND WHAT THEY SAID

IT'S VERY IMPORTANT TO STAY ORGANIZED >> WE'VE SEEN FIVE MILLION TO 27 MILLION LOSING HEALTH INSURANCE JUST THIS MORNING, 13 MILLION FILING UNEMPLOYMENT WHAT IF YOU HAVE NO INSURANCE? CHECK IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT

YOU'VE GOT TO GO TO YOUR STATE MEDICAID WEBSITE THERE ARE PROGRAMS VARYING STATE-BY-STATE BUT THE CHILDREN'S HEALTH INSURANCE PLAN IS AVAILABLE GO TO HEALTHCAREGOV AND SEARCH FOR MEDICAID AND THE CHILDREN'S HEALTH INSURANCE PLAN TO SEE WHAT YOUR OPTIONS ARE AND YOU CAN CHECK OUT HEALTHCAREGOV TO GO IN THE MARKETPLACE TO FIND AN AFFORDABLE HEALTH CARE PLAN

THE LAST OPTION IS THAT IF YOU ARE ONE OF THE MILLIONS THAT WERE LAID OFF, YOU HAVE 60 DAYS TO EXTEND YOUR COBRA THAT IS CONTINUING ON THE HEALTH CARE PLAN YOU HAVE THROUGH YOUR EMPLOYER IT'S EXPENSIVE AND NOT THE BEST OPTION BUT IF YOU ARE GETTING CHEMOTHERAPY OR HAVE ONGOING TREATMENT AND MAY NOT WANT TO CHANGE YOUR HEALTH INSURANCE PROVIDER, AND YOU ARE ABLE TO AFFORD TO EXTEND COVERAGE THROUGH COBRA, THAT MAY BE A GOOD OPTION SO YOU DON'T INTERRUPT YOUR CARE >> GREAT TIPS AND WE WILL COME BACK TO YOU FOR MORE AS THIS DRAGS ON

AND IT MEANS A LOT FOR THEM TO CONTINUE SAYING THEIR NAMES

I WISH I COULD HAVE CHOSEN THE NAME OR A PHRASE THAT I WANT, RATHER THAN PRESET NAMES BUT, THIS IS WHAT WE HAVE AND YOU HAVE TO ROLL WITH IT >> LAUREN, YOU HAVE BECOME QUITE PASSIONATE ABOUT THIS AND LAST MONTH YOU PENNED THIS ARTICLE IN THE PLAYER'S TRIBUNE IT DETAILS SOME THINGS THAT YOU AND JRUE HAVE GONE THROUGH AS AN INTERRACIAL COUPLE WHAT MADE YOU WRITE THIS PIECE? >> FOR US, JRUE AND I ARE VERY PRIVATE AND WE DON'T REALLY SHARE A LOT OF OUR LIVES

DURING THIS TIME, IT WAS SO IMPORTANT FOR ME, AS A WHITE PERSON, TO SHARE SEEING WHAT MY HUSBAND IS GOING THROUGH AND WHAT HIS FAMILY HAS WENT THROUGH IT PALES IN COMPARISON TO WHAT HAS HAPPENED AROUND OUR COUNTRY FOR SO MANY YEARS I FELT IT WAS IMPORTANT FOR ME TO SHARE THAT I WOULD HAVE FOLLOWERS AND MAYBE MORE WHITE PEOPLE WOULD OPEN THEIR EYES BECAUSE I WAS WRITING IT IT WAS REALLY IMPORTANT FOR US TO SHARE THAT STORY >> YOU DIDN'T JUST WRITE THE ARTICLE

YOU PUT YOUR MONEY WHERE YOUR MOUTH IS AS I UNDERSTAND IT, YOU, YOU AND YOUR HUSBAND WERE LYING IN BED ONE NIGHT AND ALL OF A SUDDEN YOU SUGGEST THAT HE DO WHAT, LAUREN?

>> YOU SUGGESTED THAT HE DONATED HIS ENTIRE SALARY FOR THE SEASON? >> YES I THOUGHT THAT WAS A GOOD IDEA >> JRUE, DID YOU THINK THAT WAS A GREAT IDEA? >> WHEN SHE FIRST SAID IT, I THOUGHT SHE WAS SAYING MY FULL SALARY AND NOT JUST THE REST OF IT GOING BACK I WAS LIKE — YOU KNOW, WE CAN DO IT WE WILL MAKE IT WORK

SHE HAS A GIVING HEART AND WE TRY TO GIVE AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE AND SHE ALWAYS HAS OUR BEST INTEREST, AS WELL AS OTHERS I WILL NEVER GO AGAINST MY WIFE >> SMART MAN YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT ROUGHLY FIVE MILLION DOLLARS YOU DECIDED, YOU AND LAUREN, TO DONATE TO VARIOUS CAUSES >> I THINK IT'S STILL AN STILL AN ONGOING PROCESS FOR US

WHAT WAS SO IMPORTANT WAS FOR US TO FIND THE PLACES THAT MAYBE ARE FLYING UNDER THE RADAR THAT WERE CLOSE BECAUSE OF COVID- 19 SMALL BUSINESSES THAT ARE NOT MAKING IT DURING THESE TIMES IT'S IMPORTANT FOR US TO GIVE TO BLACK-OWNED BUSINESSES RIGHT NOW, THEY MIGHT GET LESS THAN 2% OF THE PAYOUTS THAT ARE HAPPENING ACROSS PPA AND EVERYTHING I THINK FOR US IT WAS IMPORTANT TO FOCUS ON THAT

REALLY JUST REBUILDING BUSINESSES AND EDUCATION AND HELPING WHEREVER WE COULD I THINK WE HAVE MADE PLEDGES TO NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA, LOS ANGELES AND INDIANAPOLIS BECAUSE THEY ARE CLOSE TO K K OUR HEARTS AND ABOUT 10 OTHER CITIES THAT IS WHERE WE ARE GOING TO START >> WHEN YOU DO? >> OCTOBER >> OKAY

CHILDREN AT TWO YEARS OLD INTERNALIZE RACIST IDEAS MANY PARENTS BELIEVE THAT A TWO-YEAR-OLD OR A SIX-MONTH-OLD IS COLORBLIND THEY ARE NOT EVEN BE GETTING THIS CONVERSATION >> IS IT NOT GOOD ENOUGH THEN TO SAY YOU KNOW WHAT, I TREAT EVERYBODY FAIRLY I TEACH MY KIDS TO BE NICE TO EACH OTHER

I HAVE A FAIRLY MIXED AMOUNT OF FRIENDS I THINK I'M FINE IS THAT NOT GOOD ENOUGH? KNOW WE NEED EVERY SINGLE AMERICAN TO BE A PART OF THIS STRUGGLE WE NEED A COLLECTIVE FORCE TO UPROOT SOMETHING THAT IS SO HISTORIC

>> A LOT OF PEOPLE, EVEN FOR ME COULD SAVE THE RACIST IT FEELS UNCOMFORTABLE FOR SOME REASON THAT WORD HOLDS MORE POWER THAN I COULD'VE EVER IMAGINED, DOESN'T IT? >> IN MANY WAYS RACIST HAS BEEN MADE INTO THE NEW N-WORD IT HAS BEEN PERCEIVED OR PROJECTED AS AN ATTACK TERM WHEN YOU IDENTIFY SOMEONE AS BEING RACIST, YOU ARE TRYING TO HURT THEM

THAT IS NOT HOW WE SHOULD UNDERSTAND THE TERM RACIST IT IS A DESCRIPTIVE TERM THAT IS ALL IT EVER DOES, DESCRIBE PEOPLE, IDEAS, INSTITUTIONS AND CERTAINLY POLICIES BY CONTRAST, THE ANTI-REST JUST FORMS OF THOSE ENTITIES EXIST >> YOU HAVE HAD YOUR OWN RACIST THOUGHTS

WE SEEK TO PLACE THERE SO WE CAN REMEMBER WE NEVER ESSENTIALLY RETURN TO THAT PLACE >> ARE YOU OPTIMISTIC WE WILL SEE REAL CHANGE ESPECIALLY WHEN IT COMES TO POLICIES? I KNOW THAT IS WHAT YOU REALLY BELIEVE IS IMPORTANT >> I AM HOPING THAT PEOPLE RECOGNIZE THE IMPORTANCE OF POLICY CHANGE AND PEOPLE FIGHT THERE NOT JUST FOR CULTURAL CHANGES, CHANGING OUR COMMUNITY

WE DO THAT BY CHANGING THE POLICIES THAT GOVERN THEM >> AGAIN, SEEKING POLICY CHANGE I'VE NEVER SEEN A CHILDREN'S BOOK WITH THE WORD POLICY IN THERE BUT HE THINKS KIDS CAN HANDLE IT IF THEY HAVE QUESTIONS IT'S A TOOLKIT TO TALK TO YOUR KIDS ABOUT DIFFERENT ISSUES >> IT'S NOT ENOUGH TO NOT BE RACIST

>> I FEEL A LITTLE BIT SAFER I DON'T MINDED TAKING EXTRA TIME >> IT MAY BE WORTH IT FIVE PEDIATRICIANS TOLD US THE BENEFITS OF STUDENTS BEING TOGETHER IN A CLASSROOM OUTWEIGH THE RISKS OF SPREADING DISEASE THE KEY IS TO REOPEN SAFELY

>> WE ARE FOLLOWING SIMPLE GUIDELINES >> I AM ON THE PLAYGROUND AT THE DAYCARE CENTER THE KIDS ARE OUT AND PLAYING IN SCHOOL IS IN SESSION HOW DID YOU GET THE SCHOOL READY TO REOPEN SAFELY? >> WE HAVE TO FOLLOW STATE GUIDELINES AND ALSO THE CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL AND PREVENTION RECOMMENDATIONS >>REPORTER: WHAT ARE PARENTS TELLING YOU? >> THEY'RE VERY HAPPY

EVEN IF THEY ARE WORKING FROM HOME THEY CAN CONCENTRATE ON WHAT THEY ARE DOING THEY ARE VERY HAPPY THAT THE CHILDREN ARE HAPPY >>REPORTER: THEY REDUCED CAPACITY THEY ARE LIMITED TO 40 STUDENTS AND DIVIDED INTO SMALL GROUPS OF 10 OR WHAT EXPERTS ARE CALLING PODS IF SOMEONE GETS SICK THE POD CAN BE QUARANTINE

BECAUSE ONLY STUDENTS AND TEACHERS ARE ALLOWED INSIDE DURING SCHOOL HOURS, WE ASKED STAFF TO TAKE VIDEO THE KIDS ARE SIX FEET APART SOME KIDS LOVE WEARING MASKS AND HAVE TO BE REMINDED TO TAKE THEM ALL FOR NAP TIME EACH CHILD BRINGS THEIR OWN SUPPLIES AND LUNCHES DIFFERENT AS WELL THEY NEED AT THEIR DESK INSTEAD OF THE CAFETERIA

>> THEY ARE OUTSIDE AND GETTING FRESH AIR IT GIVES THEM AN OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE IT FEEL LIKE A SUMMER CAMP >> ALMOST EVERYTHING ELSE HAPPENS OUTSIDE INCLUDING ARTS AND CRAFTS STUDENTS ROTATE THROUGH DIFFERENT STATIONS PE IS RUNNING AROUND IN THE SPRINKLERS

>> AND THE SCHOOLS DIRECTOR SAID IT TOOK WEEKS OF LONG MEETINGS AND PLANNING HER ADVICE IS TO LOOK TO SCHOOLS OF FOR GUIDANCE THE WESTFIELD DAY CARE CENTER HAS BEEN IN SESSION 3 WEEKS THERE WERE $50 BILLION IN REGULATORY COST SAVINGS AND IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE THE DEREGULATION AGENDA LOWERS THE COST FOR EVERY AMERICAN THE COST OF THESE REGULATIONS FALL DISPROPORTIONATELY AND BENEFIT DISPROPORTIONATELY LOWER INCOME AMERICANS

THIS PRESIDENT TOOK ACTION HE MAKE SURE LOWER INCOME AMERICANS ARE TAKEN CARE OF FOR EXAMPLE, THE PRESIDENTS DEREGULATORY AGENDA WILL BOOST INCOME BY $3100 ANNUALLY THANKS TO ROLLING BACK THE CAFI STANDARDS THERE WILL BE ACCESS TO CHEAPER CARS AND PATIENTS WILL SAVE 10% ON PRESCRIPTION DRUG CAUSE THESE WINS FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WILL DISAPPEAR WITH THE REREGULATION

PRESIDENT TRUMP WILL CONTINUE TO PURSUE HIS DEREGULATION ACTIVITIES WE HAD ENCOURAGING NEWS YESTERDAY ON VACCINES MODERNITY SHOWS POSITIVE SIGNS THEY HAVE A POSITIVE MUTUAL RESPONSE AMONG ALL PARTICIPANTS IN THE STUDY THIS IS COMPARABLE TO WHAT WE SEE IN RECOVERED PATIENTS

WE ARE SEEING EXACTLY WHAT YOU WOULD HOPE TO SEE IN A VACCINE MODERNITY IS EXPECTED TO REACH A PHASE 3 BY JULY WITH 30,000 ON THE THERAPEUTIC FRONT, VERY ENCOURAGING, $450 MILLION CONTRACT FOR ANTIBIOTIC COCKTAILS THIS IS A BIOENGINEERED VERSION OF CONVALESCENT PLASMA THIS IS TO TREAT KUVIN AND CAN BE USED FOR TREATMENT THAN THEY COULD HAVE 70 TO 300,000 DOSES OF THIS BY THE END OF THE SUMMER OR EARLY FALL

SO OPERATION WARP SPEED CONTINUES WITH THAT I WILL TAKE YOUR QUESTIONS >> THE MARYLAND GOVERNOR SAID PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS LEFT STATES TO FEND FOR THEMSELVES HE SAID THE PRESIDENT IS NOT LISTENING TO MEDICAL EXPERTS >> YES

IT WAS STRIKING, HIS COMMENTS ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU CARE THAT COMPARE THEM TO PAST COMMENTS IT IS IN STARK CONTRAST TO WHAT HE SAID ON MARCH 19 WHERE HE PRAISED THE GREAT COMMUNICATION THE PRESIDENT HAD WITH GOVERNORS HE ALSO SAID THANK YOU THERE HAS BEEN TREMENDOUS COOPERATION WHAT IS STRIKING IS THAT THE GOVERNOR BEGINS WITH THIS APRIL 18 SCENE WHERE SOUTH KOREA DELIVERED TEST BUT THE DAY PRIOR HE SAID SOMETHING ENTIRELY DIFFERENT HE THANKS THE PRESIDENT FOR THE PROGRESS WE HAVE SEEN IN FEDERAL AND STATE COORDINATION AND WENT ON TO PRAISE TESTING CASE CAPABILITIES HE SAID PRAISES FOR DELIVERING ON TESTING JUST 24 HOURS PRIOR TO THAT

>> [ INAUDIBLE ] THAT WOULD BE A QUESTION FOR THE CAMPAIGN WHEN IT COMES TO CAMPAIGN POLLING WHEN I WOULD SAY IS THAT WE BELIEVE THIS PRESIDENT HAS GREAT APPROVAL THE RESPONSE FOR COVID-19 SPEAKS FOR ITSELF THERE ARE THERAPEUTICS, THERE ARE 13 VACCINE CANDIDATES THIS PRESIDENT'S RESPONSE HAS BEEN HISTORIC AND HIS SUPPORT REFLECTS THAT

>> [ INAUDIBLE ] THE PRESIDENT IS FOCUSED ON THE CORONAVIRUS YOU WILL HEAR MORE ABOUT WHAT WE ARE DOING WE TALK ABOUT THIS EVERY DAY FROM THIS PODIUM AND I AM GLAD YOU ASKED ABOUT THIS IN PARTICULAR I WANT TO READ THROUGH SOME OF THE THINGS THAT WE ARE DOING WHICH I THINK IS MOST IMPORTANT THE WHITE HOUSE HAS ENGAGED IN TRAVEL [ INAUDIBLE ] I SPOKE WITH DR

BURKS THIS MORNING HE IS IN GEORGIA TODAY AND GOING TO SOUTH CAROLINA TOMORROW THEY HAVE DEPLOYED 19 TEAMS ACROSS THE COUNTRY AND IDENTIFIED NOT WHERE WE SEE AMBER'S BUT WHERE WE MIGHT SEE AN EMERGENCY AND WE SEND IT TEAMS THERE WE ARE PROACTIVE DR

BURKS ROUTINELY SENDS REAL-TIME DATA TO GOVERNORS HE HAS THE REPORTS DAILY 65,000 MILES BETWEEN FOUR STATES AND WE ARE ALSO GOING TO TESTING SITES >> WHAT IS THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE FACING THE PUBLIC >> THE PRESIDENT HAD A BIG COMP PRESS CONFERENCE IN THE OVAL OFFICE ABOUT MS 13

COVE IT IS SOMETHING WE ARE FOCUSED ON IT IS A TOP PRIORITY I MENTIONED WE WERE TAKING ALL THOSE STEPS THERE ARE OTHER THINGS THE PRESIDENT HAS TO FOCUS ON MAINLY THE MAYOR OF CHICAGO AND PEOPLE DYING ON THE STREETS IN HER CITY EVERY WEEKEND AND THE PRESIDENT SAID HER A LETTER SAYING YOU MUST SECURE YOUR CITY

OPERATION LEGEND A MAN WHO LOST HIS LIFE SENDING FEDERAL ASSISTANCE TO ST LOUIS THEY HAVE ASKED FOR OUR HELP AND HE IS SHOWN UP MS 13

TWO YOUNG LITTLE GIRLS WORK KILLED THE LEADER OF THE RING HELD THEM ACCOUNTABLE HE IS FOCUSED ON A LOT OF THINGS AT ONCE THAT IS THE GREAT THING ABOUT THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION >> WHEN IS THE LAST TIME HE ATTENDED A TASK FORCE BRIEFING

>> [ INAUDIBLE ] WE HAVE DONE MORE THAN ANY COUNTRY IN THE WORLD ON TESTING THERE IS NO DOUBT ABOUT THAT 42 MILLION TEST INDIA IS THE NEXT HIGHEST THERE ARE DIFFERENT TYPES OF TEST AND SOME TAKE LONGER TO PROCESS THAN OTHERS WE ASKED THEM TO PROCESS THOSE TESTS AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE

>> IT'S NOT JUST THE QUANTITY OF TESTING IT'S THE QUALITY OF TESTING IS THE ADMINISTRATION DOING ANYTHING SPECIFICALLY TO MAKE ALL THE TESTS OUT THERE RETURNED QUICKER RESULTS? HEALTH EXPERTS ARE WORRIED THAT WHEN PEOPLE HAVE TO WAIT SEVEN DAYS OR LONGER THEY ARE SPREADING THE DISEASE UNKNOWINGLY >> THERE ARE DIFFERENT TYPES OF TESTS SOME DO TAKE LONGER WE CAN GIVE THE STATES THE SUPPLIES BUT THEY HAVE TO USE THEM IN THE BEST WAY POSSIBLE TO GET RESULTS AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE

WE ARE FULLY ENGAGED AND WE HAVE 552 SITES TESTING IN AMERICA AND 48 STATES AND 65% OF THE SITES ARE IN COUNTIES WITH MODERATE TO HIGH SOCIAL VULNERABILITY AND 201 ADDITIONAL SITES WILL GO LIVE THIS WEEK ON TOP OF THE 1300 FEDERALLY QUALIFIED HEALTH CENTERS TESTING AND COMMERCIAL TESTING SITES >> PRESIDENT TRUMP SAID MORE WHITE PEOPLE ARE KILLED THEN BLACK BY POLICE OFFICERS BY PERCENTAGES BLACK PEOPLE ARE THREE TIMES MORE LIKELY THAN WHITE PEOPLE TO DIE IN A POLICE ENCOUNTER IF THE PRESIDENT WILL NOT ACKNOWLEDGE THAT, HOW CAN HE FIX IT? >> HE HAS ROUTINELY ACKNOWLEDGED AND EXPRESSED THE ATROCITY OF THE CASE OF GEORGE FLOYD OUR HEART GOES OUT TO THAT FAMILY

HE WAS NOTING A FACT THAT THERE WERE — WHEN YOU LOOKED AT UNARMED KILLING WITH POLICE INTERACTION THERE WERE NINE UNARMED BLACK INDIVIDUALS AND 19 WHITE INDIVIDUALS THAT IS DOWN FROM 38 AND 32 RESPECTFULLY THE NUMBERS HAVE COME DOWN SINCE THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION ONE POINT HE WAS TO STRONGLY MAKE IS THIS BLACK MEN AND WOMEN WHO DIE OF HOMICIDE ARE LIKELY TO DIE OF HOMICIDE EIGHT TIMES GREATER THEN WHITES AND HISPANICS COMBINE

THAT IS EXTRAORDINARY I HAVE A LIST OF KIDS WHO HAVE DIED ACROSS THIS COUNTRY UNDER THIS PRESIDENT HE WILL TAKE ACTION >> WE'RE TALKING ABOUT PEOPLE DYING AT THE HANDS OF POLICE OFFICERS >> IS THE PRESIDENT CONSIDERING A TRAVEL BAN FOR MEMBERS OF CONGRESS AND IS HE CONCERNED ABOUT ESCALATION OF TENSIONS IN CHINA

LIKE I HAVE NO ANNOUNCEMENTS ON THAT FRONT I AM MAKING SURE WE KEEP EVERY OPTION ON THE TABLE HAS HE RULED ANY OUT? >> NOT WITH REGARD TO CHINA >> THANK YOU DOES THE WHITE HOUSE HAVE A REACTION TO THE ATTACK ON TWITTER LAST NIGHT AND YOU HAVE ANY BROADER CONCERNS ARE THE PRESIDENT HAVE ANY BROADER CONCERNS ABOUT USING THAT PLATFORM TO ISSUE HIS OWN OPINIONS AND OFFICIAL POLICIES BECAUSE IT IS VULNERABLE TO HACKING

>> YES I SPOKE WITH DAN AND THEY ARE IN CONSTANT CONTACT WITH TWITTER TO KEEP IT SECURE THE PRESIDENT TWITTER FEED THE PRESIDENT WILL REMAIN ON TWITTER BUT IT WAS SECURED AND NOT JEOPARDIZED DURING THE EVENT >> I GUESS I DIDN'T FOLLOW THE DATA ARE YOU SAYING HE DID HAVE DATA TO BACK UP HIS CLAIM THAT MORE WHITE PEOPLE ARE KILLED BY POLICE OFFICERS THAN BLACK PEOPLE? >> YES

I READ THAT DATA TO YOU >> I READ THAT TO YOU YOU CAN GO BACK AGAIN ON THE TAPE AND GET THAT >> [ INAUDIBLE ] CHARGED WITH THREE FELONIES AND A VOTER FRAUD CASE [ INAUDIBLE ] THAT IS A FIRST I'M HEARING OF THAT

PRESIDENT TRUMP DOES HAVE VERY REAL CONCERNS ABOUT VOTER FRAUD THERE ARE MORE TO CONSIDER 1% OF ABSENTEE BALLOTS WERE THROWN OUT AND IT COULD BE HIGHER THIS YEAR AS MANY PEOPLE VOTE BY MAIL FOR THE FIRST TIME THAT IS ONE FLOW BEYOND THAT, WE HAVE SEEN A NUMBER OF REPORTS OUT OF NEW JERSEY, A U

S POSTAL SERVICE MAY HAVE BEEN CAUGHT ON FIRE IN THE TRUCK AND THIS IS STRIKING, 500 TO 700 REPUBLICANS RECEIVED BALLOTS WITH ALL DEMOCRATIC OPPONENTS IT WAS JOE BIDEN DOWN TO THE DOGCATCHER THOSE ARE THREE RECENT EXAMPLES AND THERE ARE MANY MORE

>> HE SAID IT WAS BECAUSE NORTH CAROLINA'S GOVERNOR WAS IN A SHUTDOWN MODE AND HE WAS PLAYING POLITICS BECAUSE HE DID NOT WANT TO HAVE AN INDOOR STADIUM NOT FULL TO CAPACITY HE ALSO SAID NORTH CAROLINIANS WOULD BE [ INAUDIBLE ] ALL OF THAT MONEY AND TIME ALL THAT COST TO JOBS AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT TO NORTH CAROLINA [ INAUDIBLE ] WHAT DOES THE PRESIDENT HAVE TO SAY TO NORTH CAROLINA THE PRESIDENT LOVES THE PEOPLE OF NORTH CAROLINA HE WANTED TO HAVE HIS CONVENTION THERE FOR ANYTHING FURTHER I WOULD REFER YOU TO THE RNC

>> THE PRESIDENT IS TALKING ABOUT AN EXECUTIVE ORDER ON IMMIGRATION COMING SOON AND PROTECTIONS FOR DACA RECIPIENTS IT IS UNCLEAR WHETHER THOSE PROTECTIONS WILL BE INCLUDED IN THE EXECUTIVE ORDER I'M HOPING YOU COULD CLARIFY, WILL THE PATH TO CITIZENSHIP BE IN THE EXECUTIVE ORDER? >> HE IS WORKING ON IN ORDER TO ESTABLISH A BASE TO IMMIGRATION SYSTEM THE PRESIDENT HAS LONG SAID HE WOULD LOOK FOR A LEGISLATIVE SOLUTION ON DACA AND WORK WITH CONGRESS TO FIND THAT SOLUTION INCLUDING CITIZENSHIP AND OTHER STRONG BORDER SECURITY AND PERMANENT MERIT-BASED REFORMS HE WOULD WORK WITH CONGRESS ON THAT

THE EXECUTIVE ORDER WOULD PERTAIN TO THAT >> AND THEN THE SCHOOLS, THE PRESIDENT SAID HE WAS TALKING ABOUT NEW PAGES OF DOCUMENTS FOR CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL AND PREVENTION COMING OUT THIS WEEK IS THAT STILL THE PLAN? ARE THOSE COMING OUT THIS WEEK? IS THERE ANY CHANCE THIS IS BEING RETHOUGHT AT THIS TIME? >> THE CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL AND PREVENTION GUIDELINES, THEY WILL HAVE TO SAY WHEN THEY WILL COME OUT WE WOULD LIKE TO SEE SCHOOLS OPEN WE DON'T THINK OUR CHILDREN SHOULD BE LOCKED UP AT HOME WITH DEVASTATING CONSEQUENCES WHEN IT IS SAFE FOR THEM TO GO TO SCHOOL

THE PRESIDENT IS VERY KEEN ON SEEING SCHOOLS REOPEN IT IS THE ONLY THING FAIR TO THE CHILDREN >> HAVE TWO QUESTION THE CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL AND PREVENTION DIRECTOR SAID IF ALL OF US WOULD PUT ON A FACE COVERING FOR THE NEXT 4 TO 6 WEEKS WE COULD DRIVE THIS EPIDEMIC INTO THE GROUND OTHER PEOPLE HAVE SAID IT WAS OUR MAJOR DEFENSE

I'M WONDERING IF THERE WOULD BE A NATIONWIDE MASK MANDATE >> THE PRESIDENT HAS SAID IF HE COULDN'T APPROPRIATELY SOCIAL DISTANCE HE WOULD WEAR MASS HE HAS SHOWN THAT HE WILL WEAR A MASK AND NOT ONLY THAT HE WOULD WEAR ONE IF HE WERE NOT SOCIALLY DISTANCED WE LIVE IT TO LOCALITIES TO MAKE THE DECISION WITH REGARD TO FACE COVERINGS >> ONE MORE QUESTION

YOU SAID EARLIER THE PRESIDENT IS VERY CONCERNED ABOUT OFFICIALS NOT TAKING ACTION ABOUT THAT'S IN THEIR CITIES HE WAS APPALLED BY WHAT HAPPENED TO GEORGE FLOYD AND BREANNA TAYLOR WAS KILLED WHILE SLEEPING IN HER HOME THOSE THREE OFFICERS HAVE NOT BEEN ARRESTED OR FIRED IS THE PRESIDENT MONITORING THAT CASE AT ALL? >> I WON'T WEIGH INTO THAT EXCEPT I WILL REFER YOU TO THE DOJ

OUR HEARTS GRIEVE FOR BREANNA TAYLOR'S FAMILY >> THANK YOU >> HAVE A QUESTION ON CHINA PRESIDENT TRUMP IS THE ONLY US

PRESIDENT TO [ INAUDIBLE ] AGAINST CHINA DOES HE HAVE A MESSAGE TO CHINA? >> I DID SEE YOUR QUESTION EARLIER I BROUGHT IT TO THE PRESIDENT HE SAID I LOVE THE PEOPLE OF INDIA AND CHINA AND I WANT TO DO EVERYTHING POSSIBLE TO KEEP THE PEACE FOR THE PEOPLE THANK YOU

>> YES TO QUESTIONS [ INAUDIBLE ] FIRST A CAMPAIGN MEETING IN THE CABINET ROOM LAST MONTH AND THEN THE POLITICAL SPEECH AT THE ROSE GARDEN TELL US ABOUT YOUR UNDERSTANDING OF THE POLICY [ INAUDIBLE ] IS THERE ANY PLACE IN THE WHITE HOUSE WHERE YOU SEE THE MESSAGE AND WHERE DO YOU DRAW THE LINE? >> IT IS ESTABLISHED THAT THE PRESIDENT AND VICE PRESIDENT ARE NOT SUBJECT TO THE HASH ACT THAT APPLIES TO EMPLOYEES DEFINED IN THE HATCH ACT AS ANY INDIVIDUAL OTHER THAN THE PRESIDENT AND VICE PRESIDENT [ INAUDIBLE ] YOUR REAL PROBLEM IS THE FACT THAT THE PRESIDENT GAVE A GOOD AND POWERFUL SPEECH FROM THE ROSE GARDEN

>> OKAY LET'S TALK ABOUT SCHOOL DISTRICTS [ INAUDIBLE ] DECIDED TO GO BOTTOM LINE ONLY WHAT DID THE PRESIDENT SAY TO PARENTS WHO ARE SAYING OKAY, WHAT DO I DO WITH MY KIDS? >> THE PRESIDENT HAS SAID THAT HE WANTS SCHOOLS TO OPEN WHEN HE SAYS OPEN HE MEANS OPEN IN FULL, KIDS BEING ABLE TO ATTEND EACH AND EVERY DAY IN THEIR SCHOOL

I THOUGHT THIS WAS A GOOD QUOTE OUR PIER NATIONS ARE DOING IT WHERE THE OUTLIER THIS SCIENCE IS VERY CLEAR ON THIS THAT FOR INSTANCE YOU LOOK AT THE PEDIATRIC STUDY OF 48 HOSPITALS THE SCIENCE IS ON OUR SIDE

WE ENCOURAGE FOR LOCALITIES AND STATES TO SIMPLY FOLLOW THE SCIENCE, OPEN THE SCHOOLS IT IS VERY DAMAGING TO OUR CHILDREN THERE IS A LACK OF A REPORTING OF ABUSE, PSEUDO SIDE NOT ADDRESSED SCHOOLS ARE IMPORTANT AND ESSENTIAL AND MUST REOPEN >> DO YOU HAVE [ INAUDIBLE ] YES

THE ONE THING I WOULD SAY ABOUT THAT, IT WAS ANNOUNCED EARLIER TODAY, WE WORKED VERY CLOSELY WITH OUR ALLIES TO MAKE SURE THAT WE COULD TAKE MEASURES TO KEEP THAT INFORMATION SAFE WE ARE AWARE OF THOSE ACTIVITIES AND WE CONTINUE TO DO SO >>> ON THE MOVEMENT OF [ INAUDIBLE ] TO HHS NOW UNDERSTANDING THAT HHS NEEDS ACCESS TO REAL- TIME DATA WAS THERE ALSO ANY CONCERN WHATSOEVER UNDER THIS DECISION REGARDING THE CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL AND PREVENTION AND POSSIBLE MANIPULATION OF DATA THERE WERE REPORTS COMING OUT SAYING MID- LEVEL CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL AND PREVENTION REPORTS WERE NOT NECESSARILY ACCURATE AND DID THAT HAVE ANY EFFECT IN THE DECISION TO SEND DATA RIGHT TO HHS? >> NO

THE INTENT, I SPOKE WITH DR BURKS AND WITH DR REDFIELD ABOUT THIS THE INTENT IS THAT WE NEED TO MAKE SURE THERE ARE DAILY DATA GIVEN TO DR BURKS AND OTHERS WHO ARE RUNNING POINT ON ACTIONS AND IDENTIFYING HOTSPOTS IN I WOULD POINT OUT, I WENT TO EXPLAIN THIS BECAUSE THERE HAS BEEN CONFUSION, THERE ARE TWO METHODS OF DATA COLLECTION

WHAT IS THE NATIONAL HEALTHCARE SAFETY NETWORK THIS IS A CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL AND PREVENTION SYSTEM WHERE HOSPITALS REPORT DATA 81% OF HOSPITALS WERE REPORTING DATA WE DON'T NEED 81% REPORTING WE NEED 100% IT IS CRITICAL THAT DR

BURKS AND OTHER RECEIVE THE DAILY ADMISSIONS, ICU USE AND PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT NUMBERS AND WHEN YOU GET 81% OF HOSPITAL DATA THAT MEANS YOU HAVE 19% THAT WE DON'T KNOW THEIR NEEDS WHAT HAPPENED WAS WE ALSO HAVE A SECOND METHOD OF TRACKING THIS DATA THIS IS AN HHS SYSTEM THIS WAS INITIALLY USED FOR PURPOSES OF PROVIDER RELIEF FUNDING WE ASKED HOSPITAL TO TELL US ABOUT ADMISSION SO WE CAN IDENTIFY HOTSPOTS

THIS DATA AS IT TURNS OUT IS MORE COMPLETE AND UP-TO-DATE WITH INFORMATION AND SO ENSURING HOSPITALS ARE REPORTING INTO THE SYSTEM AND WE ARE GETTING COMPLETE DATA WAS THE REASON HHS HAS HAD THIS TRANSITION AS HOSPITALS TO REPORT TO THE TELL US TRACKER SYSTEM WE KNOW EXACTLY WHERE THE NEEDS ARE SO WE CAN SURGE THEM >> I DID CONFIRM THAT WITH DR REDFIELD THIS IS OPEN SOURCE DATA

NO ONE IS TAKING DATA AWAY FROM THE CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL AND PREVENTION AND THAT IS ROUTINELY PUBLISHED SO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE FULLY INFORMED >> THERE HAVE BEEN COMPLAINTS AMONG INDEPENDENT [ INAUDIBLE ] USING THE CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL AND PREVENTION DATA TO ADD TO THEIR PUBLIC MODELS THOSE DASHBOARDS HAVE BEEN TAKEN DOWN I'M WONDERING IF THE ADMINISTRATION WOULD COMMIT TO MAKING THAT A BIT MORE AVAILABLE TO THE PUBLIC >> THE CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL AND PREVENTION DATABASES THE PUBLIC DATA THAT HAS BEEN OUT THERE

IT WILL CONTINUE TO BE PUBLIC THIS IS ALL ABOUT GETTING MORE DATA OUT THERE IT HAS BEEN PARTICULAR THAT OUR DOCTORS GET THAT DAILY DATA >> ONE THING I WOULD LIKE TO POINT OUT FOR EVERYONE WITH REGARD TO TESTING, WE HAVE DONE 42 MILLION TEST THAT IS THE SECOND HIGHEST NUMBER

WE LEAVE THE WORLD IN TESTING I WANTED TO PUT SOME ADDITIONAL INFORMATION OUT THERE IT WAS CBS REPORTING THAT IN 2009 THE CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL AND PREVENTION ABRUPTLY ADVISED TO STOP TESTING FOR H1 AND WHITE AND STOP COUNTING INDIVIDUAL CASES THEY STOPPED TESTING ENTIRELY AND THE VICE PRESIDENT SAID IT WAS A FORTUITY THAT H1 AND ONE IS NOT ONE OF THE MASS CASUALTIES IN AMERICAN HISTORY IT'S NOT BECAUSE WE DID ANYTHING RIGHT

IT JUST HAD TO DO WITH LUCK CONTRARY TO THAT THIS PRESIDENT LED THE WORLD IN TESTING, VENTILATORS, 13 VACCINE CANDIDATES ONE GOING INTO THE PHASE 3 CLINICAL TRIALS THIS RESPONSE HAS BEEN A HISTORIC WE DID NOT PAUSE AT TESTING >> THANK YOU

>> THANK YOU SO % MUCH FOR % REPORTING, SHAQ, % AND FOR WATCHING % THE VIDEO, AND % SHARING IT WITH US % >> Reporter: THANK YOU, % ALISON >>> THE MASKS % ARE MA MASKS ARE MANDATORY IF YOU ARE OUT IN PUBLIC STARTING THURSDAY THIS DATE REPORTED 40 NEW DEATHS THAT IS A SINGLE DAY RECORD DR BURNS JOINS US NOW FROM MONTGOMERY

THEY SAID THEY HAVE BEEN HOPING FOR AND ASKING FOR THIS ORDER FOR A WHILE AND CONSIDERING FRIENDS IN ALABAMA IT COULD NOT HAVE COME SOON ENOUGH >> >>REPORTER: ARE THE LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR'S DISAGREEING? WHY IS THAT? >> YES THIS IS NOT THE FIRST TIME THA HAS HAPPENED HE CAME OUT TODAY AND LET ME READ A QUOTE HE SAID THE MANDATE IS AND OVERSTEP AND INFRINGES ON PROPERTY RIGHTS OF BUSINESS OWNERS AND INDIVIDUALS TO MAKE THEIR OWN HEALTH DECISIONS

IN APRIL HE ASKED THE GOVERNOR TO OPEN BUSINESSES MORE QUICKLY THAN SHE WAS WILLING TO YOU WILL SEE A SPLIT IN THESE KINDS OF MATTERS CERTAINLY ON THIS MESSAGE IT IS A PERSONAL RIGHTS ISSUE NOW >> OKAY WE CAN SEE THE EMERGENCY ROOM SIGN BEHIND YOU

WHAT IS GOING ON THERE? IT'S POURING RAIN IT HAS BEEN SOME ALABAMA WEATHER HERE TODAY I MENTIONED THE HOSPITALIZATION RECORDS EARLIER THAT IS COUPLED WITH RECORD LOW ICU CAPACITY RIGHT NOW THE STATE , ACROSS THE STATE OF ALABAMA THE ICU DEPARTMENTS ARE 85% FULL

WHAT WE CAN DO IS UTILIZE THE EXPERIENCES AND THE EXPOSURES OF THOSE WHO HAVE HAD THE BRUNT OF % THIST AND CONTINUE TO BUILD THAT PLAYBOOK WHAT I'D LIKE TO SEE PEOPLE DO IN OUR COMMUNITY, UN IS TO FOCUS ON PROTECTING ONE ANOTHER BY TRYING TO WASH HER HANDS AND D WEAR THESE MASKS AND SOCIAL DISTANCE THAT MEANS NOT ALLOWING YOUR KIDS TO GO TO PARTIES AND NOT SETTING UP PARTIES AND NOT GOING TO THE LAKE, NOT GOING TO CAMPING GROUNDS BECAUSE YOU ARE COMING IN CONTACT WITH OTHERS TO BE QUITE FRANK, YOU CANNOT ASSUME THAT EVERYONE IS DOING WHAT YOU ARE DOING

M EXE ES% >> THIS IS IN LINE WITH WHAT THE GOVERNOR HAS GO BEEN SAYING ALL ALONG HE DOES NOT WANT LOCAL LEADERS ENFORCING POLICIES THAT ARE MORE RESTRICTIVE THAN WHAT WAS PUT IN PLACE STATEWIDE AND HE DOESN'T BELIEVE IT IS ENFORCEABLE IN THIS 40 PAGE ORDER, THERE IS A PORTION WHERE HE PUTS INTO WRITING FOR THE FIRST TIME THAT LOCAL LEADERS CANNOT REQUIRE PEOPLE TO WEAR MASKS OR FACE COVERINGS

WHAT THIS DOES IN GEORGIA, IT INTENSIFIES THIS BATTLE WE'VE SEEN BETWEEN GOVERNOR KEMP IS AND LOCAL LEADERS WE'VE SEEN THIS FOR THE BETTER PART OF THIS PANDEMIC AND WHAT YOU ARE SEEING IS THAT IT WAS ALREADY PUT IN PLACE LIKE HERE IN ATLANTA AND IN SAVANNAH AND AUGUSTA WITHATDY B CITIES LIKE THAT AND YOU ARE SAYING DEFIANCE WE'VE HEARD FROM THE ATLANTA MAYOR, KEISHA LANCE BOTTOMS AND HER OFFICE TOLD ME OMTODAY THAT THE ORDER WILL REMAIN IN PLACE AND THAT THEY WILL CONTINUE USING DATA ANDDA %% SCIEN TO DRIVE HOW THE CITY MOVES FORWARD TO MAKE DECISIONS THE MAYOR SAID SHE'S NOT CONCERNED ABOUTE M THE STATE SUING THE CITY SHE SAID HER POLICIES WOULD BE PUT UP AGAINST ANY AGAINST ANY OTHERS, ANY DAY OF THE WEEK

IN >> Reporter: THE RESPONSE IS DEFIANT HE SPOKE ON NBC EARLIER AND PUT OUT A VERY STRONG TWEET AND ONE OF THE STRONGEST RESPONSES I'VE SEEN THAT SAID, WE NOW KNOW WHAT THE DECISION IS, QUOTE, GOVERNOR KEMP DOES NOT GIVE AES ABOUT US >> I'VE BEEN FLABBERGASTED BY WHAT HAS OCCURRED HERE AND A SITUATION WHERE THE STATE OF FLORIDA IS THE HOT SPOT AND ALABAMA HAS MANDATED THE HA MASK AND FOR BIG CITIES, BEING ABLE TO CARRY OUT THE MASK MANDATES AS WE'VE ALREADY DECLARED THEM

Y >> Reporter: GOVERNOR KEMP IS NOT SAYING MASKS SHOULD NOT BE WORN IN FACT, % HE ENCOURAGES THEM TO BE WORN AND THAT WAS PART OF THE ISSUE YESTERDAY, ENCOURAGING PEOPLE TO WEAR MASKS HE WORE A MASK WHEN HE GREETED PRESIDENT TRUMP AT THE AIRPORT YESTERDAY AND HAS EMBARKED UPON A STATEWIDE TOUR GOING CITY- TO-CITY WEARING MASKS AND POSTING SELFIES TO HIS SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNT, SAYING THINGS LIKE, MASK UP, GEORGIA WHEN IT COMES TO THE ENFORCEMENT, THAT REQUIREMENT, HE STOPS SHORT AND SAID THAT GOES TOO FAR AND SAID THAT HE DOES NOT BELIEVE IT IS ENFORCEABLE FOFOTH >> AS WE TALK ABOUT MASKS, WHAT IS THE ICU SITUATION IN GEORGIA AND HOW ARE HOSPITALS IN THAT STATE DOING? ICIC% >> Reporter: HOSPITAL NUMBERS ARE GOING UP

SHE SAID IT WAS SOME OF THE HIGHEST NUMBERS WE'VE BEEN SEEN SINCE APRIL OR SO AND THAT IS WHAT ATLANTA MAYOR, KEISHA LANCE BOTTOMS% ADDRESSED IN HER NEWS CONFERENCE AND ONE REASON SHE REQUIRES MASKS IN THE CITY OF ATLANTA IR IS THAT SHE IS HEARING FROM PEOPLE IN THE HOSPITALS AND THEY ARE SAYING THAT THEY ARE OVERWHELMED AND CONCERNED ABOUT CAPACITY, CONCERNED ABOUT SPACE AND TREATING PEOPLE SHE SAID SHE REQUIRES MASKS IN PART BECAUSE OF WHAT SHE IS HEARING FROM THE HOSPITALS PL >>> THANK YOU SO MUCH 156 PEOPLE HAVE DIED IN FLORIDA IN THE PAST 24 HOURS, A STATE RECORD FOR THE HIGHEST INCREASE IN CORONAVIRUS RELATED DEATHS HOSPITALIZATIONS ARE HITTING RECORDS AND SCHOOLS ARE GETTING READY TO REOPEN

CORRESPONDENT KERRY SANDERS HAS THE LATEST FROM MIAMI BEACH >> Reporter: ALISON, TODAY THE NUMBERS ARE GOING IN THE WRONG DIRECTION WITH THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE COMING BACK WITH POSITIVE TESTS IN FLORIDA HITTING 13,837 AND THAT FOLLOWS, IF YOU LOOK AT THE NUMBERS, LITTLE BIT OF A DIP BUT 15,000, 12000 TO 9000, AND AND 13,000 CLEARLY, THE CORONAVIRUS SPREAD CONTINUES AND ONE OF THE UNDERLYING RECOGNITIONS IN THESE NUMBERS IS REALLY QUITE DISTURBING ESSENTIALLY, PEOPLE ARE TALKING ABOUT SENDING THEIR KIDS BACK TO SCHOOL AND THAT IS THE ANALYSIS BY THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH IN PALM BEACH COUNTY, WHERE THEY LOOKED AT STATE NUMBERS AND PRETTY CLOSE TO ONE IN THREE KIDS TESTED FOR A POSITIVE TEST IT'S MOST CONCERNING IS A TALK ABOUT KIDS GOING BACK TO SCHOOL

EVEN IF THEY HAVE VERY FEW RESULTS FROM EXPOSURE TO CORONAVIRUS OR KIDS, AND IN THIS STATE, FOUR HAVE DIED, HORRIBLE FOR THE FAMILIES, BUT TYPICALLY, A LOW NUMBER OF 18 AND UNDER THAT HAVE DIED FROM CORONAVIRUS IN THE STATE THE KIDS GO TO SCHOOL AND THEN THEY SEE ADULT PARENTS, GRANDPARENTS AND AUNTS AND UNCLES, REAL CONCERN IF THESE NUMBERS BEAR OUT OR GET USED TO THIS >>> THERE ARE MORE THAN 35 MILLION CASES OF CORONAVIRUS ACROSS THE US

AND THE NUMBER OF HOSPITALIZATIONS IS GROWING THERE ARE ONLY TWO DRUGS THAT SEEM TO BE WORKING ON PATIENTS AND NOW, DOCTORS ARE WORRIED THAT HOSPITALS MIGHT BE RUNNING OUT OF THEM MEDICAL CORRESPONDENT, DR JOHN TORRES, EXPLAINS >> Reporter: AN EMOTIONAL WELCOME HOME FOR MICHAEL JENSEN

>> I SHOULD HAVE BEEN DEAD >> Reporter: HE WAS ONE OF THE PANDEMIC'S EARLY COVID PATIENTS, IN A COMA AND ON A VENTILATOR FOR 42 DAYS >> I TOLD HIM TO KEEP FIGHTING YOU CAN DO THIS >> Reporter: 'S DOCTORS TRIED A RISKY DRUG COMBO, AND UNPROVEN ANTIVIRAL CALLED REMDESIVIR TOPPED WITH A CHEAP STEROID FOR INFLAMMATION

>> WE HAD A PATIENT DYING NOT JUST FROM INFECTION, BUT THE BODY IS NONRESPONSIVE AND THAT IS WHY THE ONE-TWO PUNCH IS SO CRITICAL >> THEY SAVED MY LIFE WITHIN 24 HOURS OF THE STEROIDS AND THE OTHER DRUG, I SHOWED IMPROVEMENT AND STABILIZE >> Reporter: RECENT TRIALS FOUND REMDESIVIR CAN SHORTEN THE LENGTH OF THE DISEASE AND MIGHT SAVE LIVES THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES, HHS, SENT FREE REMDESIVIR THERE WERE THE DIRECTLY TO HOSPITALS

HHS DATA IS NOT KEEPING UP WITH CASES >> THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SHOULD MAKE SURE WE MOVE SUPPLIES NECESSARY TO TREAT PATIENTS IN THE HOSPITALS IT'S NOT CLEAR THAT THE DISTRIBUTION MECHANISMS ARE IN PLACE >> Reporter: HOSPITALS IN THE HOT SPOT STATES TELL NBC NEWS THEY ARE LOW ON THIS LIFE-SAVING DRUG >> ON FRIDAY, WE MAY NOT HAVE ANY MORE

>> Reporter: THAT GOVERNMENT SUPPLY OF REMDESIVIR WILL RUN OUT BY DECEMBER, IF NOT SOONER AND THE PRICE TAG IS ABOUT TO GO UP >> YOU CAN'T TRUST DRUG COMPANIES NOT TO PROFITEER ON THE PANDEMIC >> Reporter: DOCTORS FEAR THEY WON'T BE ABLE TO ACCESS OR AFFORD ONE OF THE ONLY DRUGS WITH EVIDENCE BEHIND IT >> IT'S NOT FAIR TO THE PATIENT SO THE FAMILIES TO THINK ABOUT THOSE THINGS WHEN THEIR LOVED ONE'S LIFE IS ON THE LINE >> DR

JOHN TORRES JOINS ME LIVE AND DR JOHN, TEXAS, ARIZONA, FLORIDA, THE STATES OF CONCERN, WHAT CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT THE REMDESIVIR SUPPLY? >> Reporter: IT WAS A BIG THING TO REMEMBER THE DISTRIBUTION IS MOSTLY THE ISSUE GOING ON BECAUSE ALTHOUGH THERE ARE SHORTAGES, THEY ARE PROJECTED TO NOT BE ACTUALLY BAD UNTIL THE SEPTEMBER TIME FRAME THE DISTRIBUTION IS THE BIG ISSUE RIGHT NOW AND IF YOU REMEMBER, GOVERNOR CUOMO IN NEW YORK SAID HE WOULD SEND REMDESIVIR TO FLORIDA AND FLORIDA SAID THEY HAVEN'T SEEN IT THAT NEEDS TO HAPPEN AROUND THE COUNTRY, ESPECIALLY THE AREAS THAT ARE HARD-HIT, THE THINGS YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT

THE CONCERN IS THAT REMDESIVIR, ALONG WITH STEROIDS, THE ONLY TWO DRUGS THAT HAVE SHOWN LIFE-SAVING BENEFIT FOR CORONAVIRUS GETTING THEM IN THE HANDS OF DOCTORS AND THE PATIENTS WHO NEED THEM IS THE MOST CRITICAL CONCERN RIGHT NOW AS OF SEPTEMBER, WHEN THE HHS RUNS OUT, WE AREN'T SURE WHAT WILL HAPPEN THE EXAMPLE I GIVE YOU IS THAT IN FLORIDA, ONE HOSPITAL SYSTEM SAYS THEY HAVE ENOUGH FOR THE END OF THE WEEK AND THEY WON'T GET MORE SUPPLIES UNTIL JULY 27 THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT CUTTING THE DOSING

INSTEAD OF 11 DAYS, CUTTING IT TO DIE FIVE DAYS TO SEE IF THEY CAN STRETCH A LITTLE BIT MORE >> HOW ARE SUPPLIES OF THE STEROID OFTEN PAIRED WITH REMDESIVIR DURING TREATMENT DOING? ARE THEY RUNNING OUT OF THAT? >> Reporter: THIS IS INTERESTING BECAUSE THAT STEROID HAS BEEN AROUND SINCE THE 1960s AND HAS BEEN USED SINCE THE DAY I WALKED INTO THE HOSPITAL AND STARTED TREATING PATIENTS IT HAS BEEN AROUND FOR SO LONG AND SO CHEAP THAT IT'S A BIT UNEXPECTED TO A OF A SUDDEN FIND OUT IT IS IN SHORT SUPPLY IT IS ON THE FTA SHORTAGE LIST AND HAVING THAT ON THE SHORTAGE LIST AND HAVING REMDESIVIR ON THE SHORTAGE LIST IS VERY CONCERNING FOR THE ISSUE IS ONE, MAKING SURE THE SPY GETS RAMPED UP AND ALSO, MAKING SURE THAT DISTRIBUTION HAPPENS WE DON'T WANT TO REPEAT THE VENTILATOR ISSUE BACK IN THE APRIL TIME FRAME WERE SOME STATES DIDN'T HAVE VENTILATORS

GETTING THAT DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM WILL TAKE A CENTRALIZED ORGANIZATION THAT IS JUST NOT HERE YET >> DR JOHN, ORDERS FOR CONVALESCENT PLASMA FAN HAVE INCREASED IN STATES LIKE FLORIDA CAN YOU EXPLAIN HOW CONVALESCENT PLASMA TREATMENTS WORK AND WHAT THE DEMAND IS LIKE FOR IT RIGHT NOW? >> Reporter: WHAT HAPPENS, YOU GET THE PLASMA, ONE OF THE BLOOD PRODUCTS YOU GET FROM PEOPLE THAT HAVE HAD COVID- 19 AND RECOVERED AND WAITED THAT 14 DAYS FOR THEIR ANTIBODIES TO BUILD UP AND THEN THEY DONATE BLOOD THE BLOOD HAS THEIR ANTIBODIES TO FIGHT COVID- 19

IF YOU GIVE IT TO A PATIENT WHO IS NOW FIGHTING COVID-19 BUT NOT FIGHTING SUCCESSFULLY, IT GIVES THEM A BOOST OF ANTIBODIES IT IS A TEMPORIZING MEASURE AND THEIR BODY WILL TAKE OVER AFTER THAT IT GIVES THEM A LIFE-SAVING BOOST TO GET THROUGH THE WORST PART OF COVID-19 THE PROBLEM IS THAT THERE IS A SHORTAGE BECAUSE OF ALL THE CASES BEING DIAGNOSED AND THE FACT THAT DOCTORS ARE USING THEM EARLIER IN TREATMENT THE WORD HAS BEEN PUT OUT THAT IF YOU'VE RECOVERED FROM COVID-19 AND IT HAS BEEN A COUPLE OF WEEKS, THINK ABOUT GIVING BLOOD

IT COULD BE LIFE- SAVING >> DR JOHN, LET'S TALK ABOUT SCHOOL REOPENINGS RICE UNIVERSITY SAID IT WILL HAVE CLASSES IN OUTDOOR TENTS HOW DOES THAT REDUCE THE SPREAD OF THE VIRUS AND ARE THERE RISKS WITH A PLAN LIKE THAT? >> Reporter: THERE ARE CERTAIN RISKS WITH PLANS LIKE THAT BUT OVERALL, IT DOES REDUCE THE RISK OF COVID-19 BECAUSE WE NOW KNOW THAT IT DOESN'T PASS FROM PERSON TO PERSON IS WELL OUTDOORS AS INDOORS AND PART OF THE REASON IS INDOORS, YOU HAVE A HARDER TIME SOCIAL DISTANCING AND THE AIRFLOW INDOORS VERSUS OUTDOORS, IT CAN GET MORE DELUDED OUTDOORS

PUT THEM IN TENTS BECAUSE THEY WILL BE OUTSIDE AND HAVE LESS OF A CHANCE OF GETTING AT ON THE OTHER HAND, WE ARE HAVING HEAT WAVE AFTER HEAT WAVE AND IN THOSE AREAS WHERE HEAT AND HUMIDITY ARE HUGE FACTORS, IT WILL BE DIFFICULT FOR STUDENTS, ESPECIALLY YOUNGER STUDENTS IN TENTS TO TEACH THEM IN SITUATIONS LIKE THAT IT WILL BE LOOKED AT ON A LOCATION BY LOCATION BASIS IT MIGHT WORK IN AREAS WHERE TEMPERATURE AND HUMIDITY AREN'T BAD BUT OTHER AREAS, IT PROBABLY WON'T WORK AS WELL THEY WILL NEED CONTINGENCY PLANS FOR MOVING PEOPLE INDOORS AND NOT GET KIDS BACK UNTIL THEY HAVE THOSE IN PLACE

>> DR JOHN, WHAT IS YOUR BEST ADVICE FOR PATIENTS NERVOUS ABOUT SENDING GRADE KIDS BACK TO SCHOOL? WHAT PRECAUTIONS SHOULD THEY TAKE WITH THEIR LITTLE ONES? >> Reporter: THE MAIN PRECAUTION IS TO MAKE SURE THEY UNDERSTAND, THE LITTLE ONES, WHY THEY SHOULD WEAR MASKS AND WASH THEIR HANDS AND MAKE IT HABITABLE IN THE FAMILY SO THAT WHEN THEY GO TO SCHOOL, IT IS A HABIT THEY PICKED UP ON AND WILL CONTINUE DOING THE SCHOOL SYSTEMS HAVE BEEN GOOD ABOUT PUTTING OUT A LOT OF INFORMATION LOOK AT THE SCHOOL AND ASK QUESTIONS ABOUT WHAT THEY ARE DOING TO KEEP YOUR STUDENT AND THE STAFF AND TEACHERS AND EVERYBODY SAFE PEOPLE AT HOME WHO HAVE PRE- EXISTING CONDITIONS OR MAY BE IMMUNOSUPPRESSED, YOU WANT TO BE EXTRA CAREFUL AND MAKE SURE THEY ARE TAKEN CARE OF

ASK THE SCHOOL SYSTEM, WHAT HAPPENS IF THERE IS A STUDENT WITH CORONAVIRUS? DO YOU HAVE A WAY TO ISOLATE THEM AND GET THEM AWAY FROM OTHER PEOPLE? IS YOUR SCHOOL USING THE POD STUDENT WHERE 20 STUDENTS STAY TOGETHER? LOOK AT TRANSPORTATION ARE THEY GETTING TO SCHOOL ON A BUS FULL OF OTHER PEOPLE? THAT IS NOT A GOOD THING OR ARE THEY IN THEIR POT ALL THE WAY FROM LEAVING YOUR DOOR TO COMING BACK TO YOUR DOOR DO YOUR HOMEWORK NOW BEFORE YOUR STUDENT HAS TO DO THEIR HOMEWORK, COME SCHOOL TIME >> DR JOHN, SO MUCH TO THINK ABOUT AND NO WONDER THAT EDUCATORS AND PARENTS ARE CONCERNED

THEY HAVE A LOT TO CONSIDER AND THANK YOU FOR RUNNING US THROUGH THAT >> Reporter: YOU BET >>> THE COUNTRY IS DEBATING HOW TO REOPEN SCHOOLS BUT A SCHOOL IN NEW JERSEY MAY BE A GUIDE CORRESPONDENT VICKY NGUYEN GOT AN EXCLUSIVE LOOK INSIDE THE SCHOOL FROM HER ONGOING SERIES, THE NEW NORMAL >>> HAVE A GREAT DAY, GIRLS

>> Reporter: THEY GREET THE STUDENTS AT THE SCHOOL IN NEW JERSEY AND NO ONE WITH A TEMPERATURE OF 1004 OR ABOVE CAN COME TO SCHOOL PARENTS SAY GOODBYE OUTSIDE >> I'LL BE RIGHT BACK >> Reporter: HOW DIFFERENT IS IT GETTING YOUR CHILD BACK TO SCHOOL? >> WE ARE ALL WEARING MASKS AND WE DON'T GO INTO THE SCHOOL AND THE KIDS WEAR MASKS MOST OF THE TIME INSIDE AND OUTSIDE, THEY DON'T HAVE TO

>> I FEEL A LITTLE BIT SAFER AND I DON'T MIND TAKING EXTRA TIME FOR THIS >> Reporter: I WILL BREAK DOWN WHAT THE WESTFIELD DAYCARE CENTER IS DOING WITH THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR THE KIDS ARE OUT AND SCHOOL IS IN SESSION HOW DID YOU GET THE SCHOOL READY TO REOPEN? >> WE FOLLOWED THE STATE GUIDELINES AND THE CDC RECOMMENDATIONS AND GUIDELINES >> Reporter: USING THE CDC GUIDELINES, THEY REDUCED CAPACITY

INSTEAD OF THE USUAL 100 STUDENTS, THEY HAVE 40 AND THEY ARE DIVIDED INTO SMALL GROUPS OF 10 OR WHAT THE EXPERTS CALL PODS AND THEY ARE REDUCING CONTACT WITH OTHERS IF SOMEONE GETS SICK, THE POD'S QUARANTINE ONLY STUDENTS AND TEACHERS ARE ALLOWED INSIDE DURING SCHOOL HOURS STAFF TOOK THIS VIDEO FOR US TEACHERS KEEP THE SICK KID 6 FEET APART AND MASKS AREN'T REQUIRED BUT SOME LOVE WEARING THEM AND HAVE TO BE REMINDED TO TAKE THEM OFF AT NAPTIME

EACH CHILD BRINGS THEIR OWN SUPPLIES AND LUNCHES DIFFERENT THEY EAT AT THEIR DESKS INSTEAD OF THE CAFETERIA >> WE ARE OUTSIDE GETTING FRESH AIR AND THEY HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY FOR IT TO BE LIKE A SUMMER CAMP >> Reporter: ALMOST EVERYTHING ELSE HAPPENS OUTSIDE, INCLUDING ARTS AND CRAFTS THEY ROTATE THROUGH STATIONS DURING THE DAY TO KEEP THEM SEPARATED AND PE IS RUNNING AROUND IN THE SPRINKLERS AND AFTER PLAYGROUND TIME, STAFFERS SANITIZE ALL HIGH TOUCH SURFACES AND IN ADDITION TO SOCIAL DISTANCING REMINDERS, CONSTANT HANDWASHING IS THE NEW NORM AND THEY WASH AS SOON AS THEY GET TO CAMPUS, AFTER THE PLAYGROUND, BEFORE LUNCH AND, OF COURSE, AFTER USING THE BATHROOM

KIDS COME OUT ONE AT A TIME AND PARENTS WEIGHT, DISTANCED , OUTSIDE WHAT IS THE PLAN WHEN A KID GETS SICK? >> WE SEND THEM HOME AND IF IT'S NOT COVERT RELATED, IT'S A NORMAL PROCEDURE TO BE FEVER FREE FOR 24 HOURS AND THINGS LIKE THAT IF IT'S COVERT RELATED, WE HAVE TO CALL THE HEALTH DEPARTMENT AND FOLLOW THEIR RECOMMENDATIONS >> Reporter: AS PART OF A CAREFUL PLAN FOR KIDS TO STAY IN SCHOOL SAFELY >> VICKI WYNN JOINS ME NOW

THIS PRESCHOOL HAS IT DOWN TO A SCIENCE BUT HEALTH EXPERTS ARE CONCERNED ABOUT THE FALL IN THE UPCOMING FLU SEASON HOW IS THE SCHOOL PREPARING FOR THAT? >> Reporter: THE SCHOOL WILL CONTINUE SOCIALLY DISTANCING AND LUCKILY FOR THEM, THEY HAVE A BIG, INDOOR SPACE TO USE, AS WELL AND THEY WILL CONTINUE TAKING TEMPERATURE CHECKS AND REMINDING PARENTS THAT NOW, MORE THAN EVER, KEEP YOUR KIDS HOME WHAT THEY ARE SICK SOMETHING ELSE THEY ARE DOING THAT WE WILL SEE AT SCHOOLS ACROSS THE COUNTRY, THEY WILL KEEP KIDS IN SMALL GROUPS, LEARNING PODS, BECAUSE IF SOMEONE DOES GET SICK AND HAS CORONAVIRUS, YOU CAN EASILY ISOLATE THAT POD AND PUT THEM INTO QUARANTINE AND HOPEFULLY, IT WON'T AFFECT THE ENTIRE SCHOOL, ESPECIALLY IF THEY KEEP UP WITH THE SANITIZING THEY ARE DOING >>> SEEMS LIKE A SMART STRATEGY WITH SO MANY EXPERTS TALKING ABOUT THOSE PODS THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR TAKING US INSIDE THAT SCHOOL

>> Reporter: GREAT TO SEE YOU >>> FROM STARBUCKS TO WALMART, BUSINESSES TELL CUSTOMERS TO COVER UP EVEN IF THEIR STATE DOESN'T HAVE A FACE MASK MANDATE CORRESPONDENT SAM BROCK HAS THAT STORY >>> WALMART IS THE NATION'S LARGEST RETAILER AND THEY ARE MAKING A STATEMENT ABOUT WEARING MASKS IN THEIR STORES AND THE MANDATE GOES INTO EFFECT MONDAY THERE ARE 5000 WALMART STORES ACROSS THE COUNTRY, THE BIGGEST RETAILER IN THE U

THE URGENCY IS OUT THERE WITH HALF THE STATES IN THE COUNTRY REQUIRING THEM AND HALF ARE NOT A LOT OF CALLS FOR A NATIONAL STANDARD AND CERTAINLY THE NATIONAL RETAIL FEDERATION IS DOING THAT THEY APPLAUDED THE MOVE BY WALMART AND SAID THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AND GOVERNORS HAVE TO STEP UP AS FAR AS WALMART IS CONCERNED, THERE IS A LONG LIST OF CORPORATIONS DOING THIS KROGER IS THE LARGEST GROCERY CHAIN AND THEY ARE REQUIRING IT STARTING WEDNESDAY AND BEST BUY, APPLE, COSTCO, THE LIST GOES ON AND ON

, CANADIAN AND UK INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES WE HAVE MATT BRADLEY FROM LONDON HOW IS RUSSIA GOING ABOUT THIS AND HAVE THEY HAD SUCCESS? >> Reporter: THEY ARE DOING IT IN SIMILAR WAYS LIKE 2016 AND IT'S AN ISSUE YOU ARE FAMILIAR WITH WITH RUSSIAN HACKERS INFILTRATING THE DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL COMMITTEE SERVERS

THEY'RE USING A LOT OF THE SAME METHODS LIKE PACKING AND RELEASING INFORMATION BUT SO FAR, WE'VE BEEN HEARING THAT THERE IS NO REAL EVIDENCE OF THESE, BUT THEY'VE STOLEN INFORMATION WHAT WE ARE HEARING IS THAT THE AGENCIES SAW THE PRESENCE OF THESE HACKING GROUPS INSIDE THE SERVERS SNOOPING AROUND BUT THEY SAW NO EXPLANATION OR EVIDENCE OF ESPIONAGE AND NO EVIDENCE THAT THEY STOLE ANYTHING THE THING IS, THERE NEVER IS EVIDENCE THEY'VE STOLEN SOMETHING ALL THIS IS EVIDENCE THAT THEY GOT INTO THE SYSTEM IT'S NOT ENTIRELY CLEAR WHAT THEY TOOK OR IF THEY TOOK ANYTHING AT ALL

>> ONE OF THESE GROUPS, COZY BEAR, IS WELL KNOWN WHAT CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT THAT? >> COZY BEAR, AKA THE DUKES, THEY'VE BEEN KNOWN SINCE 2016 AND THEY ARE CONNECTED WITH FANCY BEAR, SOMEWHAT LESS SOPHISTICATED ENTITY THAT HAS BEEN HACKING AND WAS IMPLICATED IN THE 2016 ELECTION HACK

THIS GROUP HAS BEEN SEEN THROUGHOUT THE WORLD DOING DIRTY TRICKS A LOT OF INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES, INCLUDING THE THREE MENTIONED, THE US, THE UK

AND CANADA, SAID THEY STRONGLY BELIEVE THAT COZY BEAR IS BEING OPERATED BY RUSSIAN INTELLIGENCE AND THAT'S WHY THEY SEE THIS AS ONE OF THE HALLMARKS OF THE RUSSIAN INTELLIGENCE OPERATION COZY BEAR WAS USING SPEAR PHISHING AND A LOT OF THINGS I MENTION RUSSIAN INTELLIGENCE IS PROBABLY ADDED AGAIN >> I SHOULD TELL YOU THAT THE HEAD OF THE UK

NATIONAL CYBERSECURITY CENTER THAT I SPOKE WITH EARLIER, HERE'S WHAT HE TOLD ME >> THERE IS NO SURPRISE IT'S DOABLE AND WE'VE CALLED IT OUT ON THE STRONGEST POSSIBLE TERMS AND WE ARE TRYING TO MAKE SURE ABOUT IT SO PEOPLE CAN DEFEND AGAINST IT >> I'VE GOT TO TELL YOU THAT ONE OF THOSE DETAILS YOU MENTION PARALLELS BETWEEN FIGHTING THE VIRUS AND FIGHTING AGAINST HACKING HE MENTIONED DIGITAL HYGIENE LIKE WASHING YOUR HANDS WITH YOUR COMPUTER

YOU KNOW, NOT COMPROMISING OUR PASSWORDS FOR THESE ARE EASY THINGS AND NOT CLICKING ON SUSPICIOUS EMAILS IT'S CALLED DIGITAL HYGIENE CLEAN UP YOUR COMPUTER THE SAME WAY YOU CLEAN UP YOUR CELL PHONE TO GET RID OF COVID >> A GREAT COMPARISON THERE ARE REPORTS THAT RUSSIA TRIED TO INTERFERE IN THE 2019 U

K GENERAL ELECTION WHAT ABOUT THAT? >> Reporter: IT'S HUGE NEWS IN THE UK AND BIGGER NEWS THAN THE EVIDENCE OF COMPROMISING THESE INSTITUTIONS WITH VACCINES FOR COVID

AS FAR AS THE BRITISH ARE CONCERNED, IT GOES TO SHOW THAT THE DOCUMENTS CAME INTO THE POSSESSION OF JEREMY CORBYN, THE LEADER OF THE LABOR PARTY AND THOSE DOCUMENTS WERE LEAKED FROM DISCUSSIONS BETWEEN THE US AND THE UK BUT THE NATIONAL HEALTH SERVICE

THAT IS AN INSTITUTION THAT IS WIDELY RESPECTED IN BRITAIN AND WIDELY CRITICIZED YOU CAN PICK UP A NEWSPAPER HERE WITHOUT THEM SLAMMING IT BRITISH PEOPLE ARE PROTECTIVE OF THE NHS AND THEY DON'T WANT TO SEE IT, QUOTE, BEING SOLD TO THE US OR TO PRIVATE CORPORATIONS AND THAT IS SOMETHING THAT THIS LEAKED DOCUMENT HIT ON AND FOR BORIS JOHNSON, IT'S SOMETHING THE LABOR PARTY WAS VERY, VERY WILLING TO PROMOTE AND TO SHOW THEY HAVE THIS INFORMATION

THE UNITED KINGDOM WAS TALKING ABOUT ALLOWING PRIVATE COUNTRIES FROM THE US TO HAVE A ROLE IN THE NHS IN BRITAIN IT DOESN'T SOUND CONTROVERSIAL FROM THE AMERICAN SIDE BUT IN BRITAIN, IT'S VERY CONTROVERSIAL AND IT IS LIKE SELLING THIS VENERATED NATIONAL INSTITUTION AND MANY STATES THE BEST IN THE WORLD >> IF ANYONE HAD ANY QUESTIONS OR IF WE WERE STILL SUSCEPTIBLE, I THINK YOU JUST ANSWERED IT FOR US

MATT BRADLEY, THANK YOU SO MUCH >>> HOW DID BITCOIN SCAMMERS GET CONTROL OF SOME HIGH PROFILE TWITTER ACCOUNTS? LAWMAKERS WANT TO KNOW BARACK OBAMA, JOE BIDEN, BILL GATES AND ELON MUSK, KANYE WEST –'S JUST SOME OF THE BIG-NAME ACCOUNTS THAT WERE HACKED THE SCAMMERS POSTED MESSAGES ASKING FOR BITCOIN SAKE, QUOTE, IF YOU SENT $1000, I WILL SEND BACK $2000 WE HAVE BEEN COLLINS AND WHAT DO YOU KNOW SO FAR AND HOW BAD WAS THE DAMAGE? >> Reporter: THE DAMAGE WAS VERY BAD AND MIGHT BE WORSE THAN WE CURRENTLY KNOW

WHAT HAPPENED WAS A GROUP OF HACKERS EITHER CONVINCED A TWITTER EMPLOYEE OR GOT AN EMPLOYEE TO WORK ON THEIR BEHALF, TO GO BEHIND THE SCENES AND IT WAS LIKE A MASTER KEY, A CONTROL PANEL IT ALLOWED THEM TO CONTROL ANY ACCOUNT ON TWITTER THEY CHANGED THE PASSWORD AND SENT A PASSWORD CHANGE TO THE EMAIL ADDRESS THAT ONLY THE HACKERS CONTROLLED THAT'S HOW THEY USE BARACK OBAMA'S ACCOUNT AND JOE BIDEN'S AND KANYE WEST — THEY COULD HAVE USED ANYBODY ON TWITTER THE SCARY PART IS THAT WE DON'T KNOW IF THOSE DIRECT MESSAGES THAT THOSE PEOPLE WERE SENDING, WE DON'T KNOW IF THOSE WERE HACKED AND WE MAY NOT KNOW UNTIL THEY ARE RELEASED

>> SENATOR JOSH HAWLEY WANTS TWITTER TO WORK WITH THE FBI ON THIS AND WROTE IN THE LETTER, A SUCCESSFUL ATTACK ON YOUR SYSTEM'S SERVICE REPRESENTS A THREAT TO ALL USER PRIVACY AND DATA SECURITY WHAT IS THE CEO, JACK DORSEY SAYING? >> Reporter: THEY'VE BEEN PRETTY QUIET BECAUSE THEY DON'T HAVE THE FULL ANSWERS, YET THEY SAID WE WILL TRY TO GET TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS THING AND THEY CAN'T REALLY GET TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS WITHOUT WORKING WITH THE FBI OR WITHOUT WORKING WITH PEOPLE WHO WORK IN MONEY LAUNDERING AND THINGS LIKE THAT THE BEST CASE SCENARIO IS THAT SOME PEOPLE WHO WERE TRYING TO FILL UP A BITCOIN ACCOUNT GOT ON TWITTER AND IT WAS THE DUMBEST POSSIBLE BANK HEIST OF ALL TIME AND THEY USED THE TWITTER ACCOUNTS OF FAMOUS PEOPLE TO BASICALLY ROB THE BANK OF INNOCENT PEOPLE THAT'S A REALLY GOOD SCENARIO AND THAT IS WHY INVESTIGATORS AND LAWMAKERS WILL GET TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS

IF THE BEST CASE SCENARIO IS THAT PEOPLE WERE GETTING BILKED OUT OF $300,000, IT'S NOT A BEST CASE SCENARIO >> IT SOUNDS LIKE A MOVIE AND I WOULDN'T BE SURPRISED IF IT BECOMES ONE THE HACKERS GOT TO A FORMER PRESIDENT, A PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE — WHAT CONCERNS DOES THIS RAISE ABOUT ELECTION CAN CERTAINTY, COME NOVEMBER? WE ARE GETTING EVER CLOSER >> WE SHOULD BE PRETTY SCARED THIS IS A VULNERABILITY FOR MOST OF THE AMERICAN PUBLIC AND ALMOST EVERY TECH REPORTER I KNOW DIDN'T KNOW IT WAS AVAILABLE THAT SOMEBODY IN TWITTER COULD SEE THE TWEETS FROM ANY ACCOUNT

THERE ARE PEOPLE AT TWITTER WHO DO THAT AND IF THEY ARE COMPROMISED, THOSE PEOPLE CAN START A REAL MESS WITH DEMOCRACY I DON'T WANT TO FLOAT SOMETHING THAT IS WAY OFF BASE BUT WE WERE JUST TALKING ABOUT RUSSIA A FEW SECONDS AGO RUSSIAN INTELLIGENCE HAS CARRIED OUT ATTACKS IN THE PAST WHERE THEY PRETENDED TO BE BITCOIN SCAMMERS THINGS THAT WERE BLAMED IN THE GRU, THEY TOOK THE TARGET AT BITCOIN AND USED IT TO GO AFTER PRIVATE INFORMATION AND THAT MIGHT BE WHAT IS HAPPENING AND SOMETHING WE HAVE TO LOOK INTO PEOPLE AREN'T AFRAID ABOUT 300 GRAND, IT IS ABOUT BIG SECRETS AND REALLY DANGEROUS STUFF

>> WHO IS DOING THIS AND WHAT TO THEY HAVE THEIR HANDS ON? A LOT OF PEOPLE WORRIED ABOUT IT AND THANK YOU FOR TELLING US WHAT IS FIGURED OUT SO FAR >> Reporter: THANK YOU >>> PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP SHAKING UP HIS REELECTION CAMPAIGN WITH REPLACING MANAGER BRAD PARSCALE WITH BILL STEPIEN HE SAID, OUR POLL NUMBERS ARE RISING FAST A NEW WALL STREET JOURNAL POLL GIVES JOE BIDEN AN 11- POINT LEAD OVER THE PRESIDENT, NATIONALLY AND IT SHOWS THE PRESIDENT HAS A 50% PROBLEM

50s% SAID THEY STRONGLY DISAPPROVE AT 50% SAY THERE'S NO CHANCE THEY WILL VOTE FOR HIM AND 52% ARE VERY UNCOMFORTABLE ABOUT HIS CANDIDACY WE HAVE REPORTER JOSH LEDERMAN THERE HAS BEEN SPECULATION THAT BRAD PARSCALE MIGHT BE IN TROUBLE BECAUSE OF RECENT CAMPAIGN EVENTS AND POLL NUMBERS? SOME WHITEHOUSE AIDES WERE SO SURPRISED BY THE MOVE BUT LET'S TALK ABOUT THIS WHY IS THIS HAPPENING? >> Reporter: THE TIMING WAS SURPRISING BUT THE IDEA THAT THERE WOULD BE A SHAKE UP BY THE CAMPAIGN IS SOMEWHAT INEVITABLE WE KNOW THAT THE CAMPAIGN MANAGERS WERE RIGHT AROUND THE SAME TIME WHERE THEY WERE UPSET, WE KNOW FROM SOURCES THAT SEVERAL THINGS HAD HAPPENED, INCLUDING THE TULSA RALLY THAT WAS SUCH A DEBACLE FOR THE CAMPAIGN

IT WASN'T SURPRISING THAT HE MIGHT WANT TO MAKE A CHANGE WE ARE SEEING BRAD PARSCALE DOING MEDIA AND DIGITAL STRATEGY BUT RUNNING THE CAMPAIGN WITH THE DEPUTY CAMPAIGN MANAGER IN THE TRUMP ORBIT FOR QUITE A WHILE, THE FORMER AID AS FAR AS WHO IS RUNNING THE CAMPAIGN, THERE'S A REALLY GREAT QUESTION WAS SOURCES CLOSE TO THE WHITE HOUSE SAYING IF YOU WANT TO KNOW WHO'S IN CHARGE, LOOK NO FURTHER THAN JARED KUSHNER >> THAT SEEMS TO BE WHAT WE HEAR WHERE IS THAT COMING FROM? TELL US WHAT KUSHNER IS DOING HERE

>> Reporter: WE KNOW THAT KUSHNER HAS BEEN THE GUIDING LIGHT BEHIND THIS CAMPAIGN, CHANNELING THE INSTINCTS AND TRYING TO COME UP WITH WAYS TO TURN IT INTO AN ACTUAL CAMPAIGN STRATEGY AT THE END OF THE DAY, YOU NEED THE ACTUAL CAMPAIGN MANAGER KUSHNER HAS OTHER RESPONSIBILITIES LIKE BEING A SENIOR ADVISER TO THE PRESIDENT FOR THE CAMPAIGN MANAGER, IT'S INTERESTING BECAUSE OFTEN TIMES YOU SEE PEOPLE GET FIRED OR DEMOTED IN TRUMP'S OR BED AND THEY REALLY GET THROWN UNDER THE BUS AND HERE, WE SEE SOMETHING DIFFERENT TRYING TO SHOW CONTINUITY BETWEEN THE OLD AND THE NEW CAMPAIGN AND TRYING TO SHOW THAT THIS IS A SHIFT, BUT NOT UPENDING THE WHOLE CAMPAIGN

THE MANAGER BILL STEPIEN, IN THE PAST FEW MINUTES, PUT OUT A STATEMENT AS CAMPAIGN MANAGER, HE DISCUSSES THE CONTINUITY HE SAID THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP AND BRAD PARSCALE HAVE BUILT AN UNPRECEDENTED BASE OF DATA WITH TECHNOLOGY AND BRAD WILL REMAIN HEAVILY INVOLVED WE KNOW FROM SOURCES CLOSE TO THE CAMPAIGN THAT THERE WAS ACTUALLY A MEETING AT CAMPAIGN HEADQUARTERS IN ARLINGTON THIS MORNING THERE WAS A CEREMONIAL HANDOVER OF THE REINS FROM BRAD PARSCALE TO BILL STEPIEN, TRYING TO SHOW THAT THEY ARE WORKING TOGETHER

>> AND WATCHING HIM DO JEOPARDY AGAIN HE LOOKS TERRIFIC I KNOW HE LOOKS GREAT IT'S FUN TO SEE

>> LOOKS HEALTHY AND WELL INC YOU FOR THAT BIT OF GOOD NEWS WE NEEDED THAT >>> THE MORGUES IN ARIZONA ARE NEARLY FILLED WITH CORONAVIRUS PATIENTS

HERE IS 11 NURSE TOLD US >> JUST THE OTHER DAY WE HAD THREE PATIENTS PASS WITHIN 10 MINUTES OF EACH OTHER THAT IS HOW QUICKLY THINGS CAN TURN THE MAJORITY OF THE PATIENTS ARE ON VENTILATORS THE NUMBERS ARISING

WE SEE THAT EVERY DAY THESE PATIENTS ARE ALSO ON DIALYSIS THEY ARE VERY SICK IT AFFECTS THE WHOLE BODY SYSTEM AND THAT IS ONE THING THAT PEOPLE DON'T UNDERSTAND ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU LOOK AT SOMEBODY WHO HAS IT AND IS NOT SYMPTOMATIC IT'S HARD TO UNDERSTAND HOW SICK THESE PATIENTS REALLY ARE

I FELT LIKE MY EXPERIENCE IN NEW YORK WOULD HELP ME FEEL BETTER WITH WHAT WAS GOING ON HERE AND IT IS DEALING WITH THE PATIENTS AND STAFF DEALING WITH WHAT I HAVE SEEN I WAS TALKING TO THE STAFF YESTERDAY AND THEY SAID THAT THEY REALLY APPRECIATE US COMING BECAUSE THEY WERE WORKING 1013 HOUR SHIFTS IN A ROW THEY ARE TIRED SOME OF THEM HAVE GOTTEN SICK THEY DON'T HAVE ENOUGH STAFF

THAT IS THE WAY IT IS I HAD TO HELP WITHOUT HAVING THIS ABILITY TO COME IN AND HELP THEY ARE HUMAN AS WELL >> NBC NEWS REPORTER JOINS ME NOW FROM PHOENIX SOME OF THESE TRAVELING NURSES WERE IN NEW YORK CITY DURING CORONAVIRUS

GOD BLESS THEM FOR THE WORK THEY ARE DOING TELL US ABOUT WHY THEY ARE COMING TO PHOENIX? >> I'M GLAD YOU PLAYED PART OF THAT INTERVIEW SHE IS FROM MONTGOMERY, ALABAMA SHE SPENT TWO NEW MONTHS IN NEW YORK CITY AND IS NOW IN HER THIRD WEEK IN ARIZONA SHE SAID THEY ARE HUMAN AND I AM HUMAN

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT MORE THE NUMBERS I CAN TELL YOU THAT MORE THAN 150 ARIZONANS HAVE PASSED AWAY OVER THE LAST 48 HOURS WE CAN INTRODUCE YOU TO PEOPLE LIKE PATSY ANOTHER GENTLEMAN HERE IS SHANNON SIMS YOU ARE FROM ARIZONA THIS SPRING USE SPENT MAY AND JUNE IN NEW YORK CITY YOURSELF

YOU ARE AND I SEE YOU NURSE CAN YOU TELL US WHAT YOU SAW IN NEW YORK CITY FIRST THE TWO MONTHS THAT YOU WERE THERE? >> THEY HAD A VERY DIFFERENT APPROACH TO ISOLATING THEMSELVES TO TRY TO QUARANTINE THEMSELVES FROM THIS VIRUS YOU DID NOT SEE PEOPLE OUT AND ABOUT THOSE STREETS WERE DESOLATE THERE WAS NOT MUCH GOING ON AT ALL

NO ONE WAS WALKING AROUND AND NO KIDS AT PLAYGROUNDS AND PARKS YOU DIDN'T SEE PEOPLE OUTSIDE HAVING BARBECUES OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT THAT IS ONE OF THE LARGEST CONTRASTING THINGS I HAVE SEEN COMING BACK HOME PEOPLE ARE STILL UNSURE WHAT IT MEANS TO QUARANTINE THE HOSPITAL SETTINGS, I AM SEEING PEOPLE WHO ARE VERY CHOOSY WHEN TO WEAR THE MASK

IF WE KNOW A PATIENT IS POSITIVE THEN WE WEAR MASKS >> WHAT YOU WANT PEOPLE TO UNDERSTAND? HOW MANY PEOPLE DID YOU SEE PASS AWAY? >> AT LEAST TRIPLE DIGITS, ABSOLUTELY COMING HOME, I HAVE ONLY BEEN HERE A SHORT TIME I GOT WIND YESTERDAY THAT A COWORKER OF MINE, WE HAVE WORKED TOGETHER SINCE 2013 HE PASSED AWAY

HE HAD COVID-19 ONE OF MY GOOD FRIENDS AND ALSO COWORKER IS HOPEFULLY GOING TO DISCHARGE FROM THE HOSPITAL TODAY AND SHE HAS BEEN POSITIVE WITH COVID-19 THESE ARE LOCAL PEOPLE THIS IS NOT MY EXPOSURE IN CITY IN NEW YORK CITY IT IS VERY CONCERNING

>> WHEN WE TALK ABOUT SAP STAFFING YOU SAW WHAT HAPPENED IN NEW YORK AND WHAT IS HAPPENING HERE MORE NURSES WILL BE COMING HERE TO ALLEVIATE THE PRESSURES WHAT IS THAT EXPERIENCE LIKE IN TERMS OF THE NURSE WE INTERVIEWED EARLIER SAID IT WAS WORKING TO BE HONEST I DON'T HAVE ANYTHING NEGATIVE TO SAY ABOUT THE FACILITIES THEY ARE WORKING DILIGENTLY AND AS QUICKLY AS THEY CAN TO TRY TO GET THIS THING RIGHT

THIS IS NOT LIKE ANYTHING WE HAVE SEEN BEFORE WE DON'T HAVE A MANUAL OR PLAYBOOK WHAT WE CAN DO IS UTILIZE THE EXPERIENCES AND EXPOSURES OF THOSE WHO HAVE PAST EXPERIENCE, THEY HAVE EXPERIENCED THE BRUNT OF THIS AND CONTINUE TO BUILD THAT PLAYBOOK WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO SEE PEOPLE DO IN OUR COMMUNITY IS FOCUS ON PROTECTING ONE ANOTHER BY TRYING TO WASH HER HANDS, WEARING MASKS AND SOCIALLY DISTANCING THAT MEANS NOT ALLOWING YOUR KIDS TO GO TO PARTIES, NOT SETTING UP PARTIES, NOT GOING TO THE LAKE, NOT GOING TO CAMPING GROUNDS BECAUSE YOU ARE COMING IN CONTACT WITH OTHERS

TO BE QUITE FRANK, YOU CANNOT ASSUME THAT EVERYONE IS DOING WHAT YOU ARE DOING >> THANK YOU SO MUCH AND GOD BLESS YOU THANK YOU FOR YOUR WORK TODAY IS YOUR FIRST DAY OFTEN MORE THAN A WEEK YOU CAME AND JOINED US OUT HERE IN 110 DEGREE HEAT

AS YOU PUT IN TO CONTEXT ALL OF THIS, THINGS BECOME MORE REAL WHEN YOU START TO UNDERSTAND THE SPREAD OF THE IMPACT IN ONE COMMUNITY YOU GAVE TWO MONTHS OF YOURSELF IN NEW YORK CITY AND NOW YOU'RE BACK HOME THANK YOU FOR YOUR WORK AND YOUR EFFORTS HERE >> THANK YOU >> WE ARE IN FRONT OF THE MEDICAL EXAMINER'S OFFICE

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT THE NUMBER OF DEAD PEOPLE HERE IN THE STATE THAT NUMBER CONTINUES TO RISE AND THEY BROUGHT IN IN JUST THE LAST 24 HOURS BACKUP REFRIGERATORS TO BE USED POTENTIALLY AS MORGUES AS THE DEATH TOLL CONTINUES TO INCREASE >> IT IS AN UNBELIEVABLE SITUATION I KNOW HE CAN'T HEAR US AND YOU CAN THANK SHANNON FOR ALL OF US HERE IN NEW YORK WHO ARE SO GRATEFUL FOR THE PEOPLE WHO CAME HERE TO SAVE LIVES AND HELP PROTECT OUR CITY AND IT MAKES ME CRY I HAVE BEEN DOING THAT A LOT LATELY

I USUALLY DON'T WE ARE SO VERY THANKFUL PEOPLE LIKE HIM HELPED US GET BETTER THANK YOU VERY MUCH THANK YOU

WE WILL PASS THAT ALONG >> >>> 10% OF TESTS ARE COMING BACK POSITIVE IN GEORGIA THE GOVERNOR WILL NOT ALLOW MASK IT MANDATES LANE ALEXANDER JOINS ME NOW FROM ATLANTA AND BLAINE, IN THIS EXECUTIVE ORDER THE GOVERNOR BAND LOCALITIES FROM MANDATING MASS WHY IS THAT? >> THIS IS REALLY IN LINE WITH WHAT THE GOVERNOR HAS BEEN SAYING ALL ALONG DURING THE PANDEMIC WHICH IS HE DOES NOT WANT LOCAL LEADERS ENFORCING POLICIES MORE RESTRICTIVE THAN WHAT HE HAS PUT IN PLACE

HE DOESN'T BELIEVE IT IS ENFORCEABLE BUT WHAT HE DOES IN THIS EXECUTIVE ORDER THERE IS A PORTION IN THERE WHERE HE SAYS IN WRITING THAT LOCAL LEADERS CANNOT REQUIRE PEOPLE TO WEAR MASKS OR FACE COVERINGS SO WHAT THIS DOES IS INTENSIFY THE BATTLE WE HAVE SEEN ALL ALONG BETWEEN THE GOVERNOR AND LOCAL LEADERS WHAT YOU'RE SEEING NOW FROM THOSE LEADERS WHO ALREADY PUT IT IN PLACE LIKE IN ATLANTA AND SAVANNAH AND AUGUSTA, BIG CITIES, THEY ARE'S BEING DEFIANT WE HEARD FROM THE ATLANTA MAYOR HER OFFICE TOLD ME THAT THEIR ORDER WILL REMAIN IN PLACE AND THEY ARE GOING TO CONTINUE USING DATA AND SCIENCE TO DRIVE HOW THE CITY MOVES FORWARD AND MAKES OF THE DECISION

THE MAYOR IS NOT CONCERNED ABOUT THE STATE SUING THE CITY OVER THIS SAYING SHE WOULD PUT HER POLICIES UP AGAINST ANY OTHERS ANY DAY OF THE WEEK CERTAINLY, A LOT OF THAT HAS DISCORD OVER WHAT CAME OUT FROM THE GOVERNOR YESTERDAY >> PLANE, I KNOW YOU SPOKE WITH THE MAYOR OF SAVANNAH HOW IS THIS ORDER IMPACTING THAT CITY? WHAT DOES SAVANNA PLAN TO DO WITH THIS? >> THE RESPONSES DEFIANT THEY SPOKE THIS MORNING AND PUT OUT A STRONG TWEET

ONE OF THE STRONGEST RESPONSES I HAVE SEEN SAYING WE NOW KNOW THE GOVERNOR DOES NOT GIVE A ABOUT US SO LET'S PLAY A LITTLE BIT OF WHAT THE SAVANNA MAYOR HAS TO SAY ABOUT THIS >> I HAVE BEEN FLABBERGASTED BY WHAT HAS OCCURRED HERE IN A SITUATION WHERE THE STATE OF FLORIDA IS THE HOTSPOT IN THE NATION IN ALABAMA HAS MANDATED MASKS AND WE ARE NOT ONLY ROLLING IT BACK BUT TRYING TO FORBID CITIES AND BEING ABLE TO CARRY OUT THE MASK MANDATES AS WE HAVE DECLARED THEM 11 AND WE ARE FIGHTING COVERT AND THE OTHER HAND WE ARE FIGHTING OUR GOVERNOR

OUR HANDS SHOULD BE TOTALLY WORKING TO FIGHT THIS VIRUS >> NOW I THINK IT REALLY BEARS MENTIONING THAT THE GOVERNOR IS NOT SAYING THAT MASKS SHOULD NOT BE WORN HE IS ENCOURAGING THEM TO BE WORN THAT WAS PART OF THE ORDER THEY ENCOURAGE PEOPLE TO WEAR MASKS

HE WAS WEARING A MASK WHEN HE GREETED THE PRESIDENT YESTERDAY EVEN EMBARKED UPON THE STATEWIDE TOUR GOING FROM CITY TO CITY WEARING MASKS AND SAYING THINGS LIKE MASKS OF GEORGIA HE ENCOURAGES THEM TO WEAR THEM BUT ENFORCEMENT AND REQUIREMENTS, HE STOPS SHORT THERE HE SAID THAT GOES A STEP TOO FAR AND HE DOES NOT BELIEVE IT IS ENFORCEABLE >> AS WE ARE TALKING HERE ABOUT MASKS, ONE ICUS SITUATION, HOW ARE HOSPITALS IN THE STATE DOING? >> HOSPITAL NUMBERS ARE GOING UP

WE HAVE SEEN REALLY SOME OF THE HIGHEST NUMBERS WE HAVE SEEN SINCE BACK IN APRIL OR SO THAT IS SOMETHING THAT THE MAYOR ADDRESS TODAY AND HER NEWS CONFERENCE SHE SAID ONE REASON SHE IS REQUIRING MASKS IN ATLANTA IS BECAUSE SHE IS HEARING FROM PEOPLE INSIDE THESE HOSPITALS AND SAYING THEY ARE TELLING HER THAT THEY ARE OVERRUN THEY'RE CONCERNED ABOUT CAPACITY AND BEING ABLE TO TREAT PEOPLE SHE SAID SHE IS REQUIRING MASKS IN PART BECAUSE OF WHAT SHE HEARS FROM THE HOSPITALS

>> OKAY THANK YOU SO MUCH 156 PEOPLE HAVE DIED IN FLORIDA IN THE PAST 24 HOURS THAT IS A STATE RECORD THE HIGHEST INCREASE IN DEATHS

HOSPITALIZATIONS THEIR HIT RECORDS AS WELL MEANWHILE, SCHOOLS ARE GETTING READY TO REOPEN CARRIE SANDERS HAS THE LATEST FROM MIAMI BEACH >>> THE NUMBERS ARE GOING IN THE WRONG DIRECTION THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE COMING BACK WITH POSITIVE TEST HITTING 13,837

THAT FOLLOWS, IF YOU LOOK AT THE NUMBERS A LITTLE BIT OF A DIP BUT WE WENT FROM 15,000 TO 8000 THEN BACK UP TO 13,000 AND SO CLEARLY, THE CORONAVIRUS SPREAD CONTINUES ONE OF THE UNDERLYING RECOGNITIONS IN THESE NUMBERS IS QUITE DISTURBING ESPECIALLY WITH PEOPLE TALKING ABOUT SENDING THEIR KIDS BACK TO SCHOOL THAT IS THE ANALYSIS BY THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH IN PALM BEACH COUNTY WHERE THEY LOOK AT THE STATE NUMBERS AND READY CLOSE TO ONE IN THREE KIDS TESTED UNDER 18 IS COMING BACK WITH A POSITIVE TEST WHY THAT IS MOST CONCERNING AS KIDS ARE TALKING ABOUT WITH THEIR PARENTS GOING BACK TO SCHOOL, EVEN IF WE HAVE VERY FEW SERIOUS RESULTS FROM EXPOSURE TO CORONAVIRUS FOR YOUNG KIDS IN THE STATE SO FAR ONLY FOUR PEOPLE HAVE DIED STATISTICALLY A LOW NUMBER FOR THE PEOPLE IN THAT FAMILY, THAT'S HORRIBLE

BUT THE KIDS GO TO SCHOOL AND THEN COME HOME AND SEE THEIR AUNTS AND UNCLES AND GRANDPARENTS IF THESE NUMBERS GET WORSE, HOW CAN YOU OPEN SCHOOLS WITHOUT GETTING CORONAVIRUS UNDER CONTROL? >> THERE ARE MORE THAN 35 MILLION CASES OF CORONAVIRUS ACROSS THE US AND HOSPITALIZATIONS IS GROWING

THERE ARE ONLY TWO DRUGS SO FAR THAT SEEM TO BE WORKING ON PATIENTS AND NOW DOCTORS ARE WORRIED THEIR HOSPITALS MIGHT BE RUNNING OUT OF THEM OUR MEDICAL CORRESPONDENT EXPLAINS >>REPORTER: I SHOULD'VE BEEN DEAD >> THIS WAS ONE OF THE EARLY COVERT PATIENTS IN A COMA AND ON A VENTILATOR 42 DAYS >> I TOLD HIM WE WANT YOU TO FIGHT

KEEP FIGHTING YOU CAN DO THIS >> HIS DOCTORS TRIED A RISKY DRUG YOU HAVE A PATIENT DYING FROM THE INFECTION BUT THEIR BODY IS UNRESPONSIVE THAT IS WHY THIS IS SO CRITICAL

>> THEY SAVED MY LIFE WITHIN 24 HOURS OF GETTING THE STEROIDS I SHOWED IMPROVEMENT I STABILIZE >> CLINICAL TRIALS FOUND UNDRESS A GOOD SAVE LIVES THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES WAS SENDING THE DRUG TO HOSPITALS

THEY SAY IT IS NOT KEEPING PACE WITH SURGING CASES >> THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT NEEDS TO MOVE THE SUPPLIES NECESSARY TO TREAT PATIENTS IN THE HOSPITALS IS UNCLEAR IF THE DISTRIBUTION MECHANISMS ARE IN PLACE >> HOSPITALS TELL US THEY ARE LOW ON THIS LIFE- SAVING DRUG >> BY FRIDAY WE MAY NOT HAVE ANY MORE

>> THE GOVERNMENT SUPPLY WILL RUN OUT BY SEPTEMBER IF NOT SOONER IN THE PRICE TAG IS ABOUT TO GO UP >> WE CAN'T TRUST DRUG COMPANIES NOT TO TRY TO PROFITEER ON THIS PANDEMIC >> PATIENTS TODAY WON'T BE ABLE TO ACCESS OR AFFORD ONE OF THE ONLY DRUGS WITH EVIDENCE BEHIND IT >> IT IS NOT FAIR TO HAVE TO THINK ABOUT THIS WHEN THEIR LOVED ONE'S LIFE IS ON THE LINE >> THE DOCTOR JOINS ME LIVE

TEXAS, ARIZONA, FLORIDA THE STATES OF CONCERN WHAT CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT THEIR DRUG SUPPLY? >> ONE BIG THING TO REMEMBER IS THAT THE DISTRIBUTION IS MOSTLY WHAT IS GOING ON THE SHORTAGES ARE PROJECTED TO NOT BE ACTUALLY BAD UNTIL SEPTEMBER SO DISTRIBUTION IS A BIG ISSUE RIGHT NOW

IF YOU REMEMBER GOVERNOR CUOMO SAYING I'M GOING TO SEND SOME DOSES TO FLORIDA FLORIDA SAYS THEY HAVEN'T SEEN THOSE YET THAT IS WHAT NEEDS TO HAPPEN AROUND THE COUNTRY ESPECIALLY IN AREAS HARD-HIT THE CONCERN THERE IS THAT THE DRUG AND THE STEROID, THE ONLY TWO DRUGS WITH LIFE-SAVING BENEFITS SO GETTING THEM IN THE HANDS OF DOCTORS AND INTO PATIENTS THAT NEED THEM, THAT IS A MOST CRITICAL CONCERN RIGHT NOW AS OF SEPTEMBER, WHEN HHS DOSES RUN OUT WE ARE NOT SURE WHAT WILL HAPPEN THERE

RIGHT NOW IN FLORIDA, ONE HOSPITAL SYSTEM SAYS THEY HAVE ENOUGH THROUGH THE END OF THE WEEK AND WILL NOT BE RESUPPLIED UNTIL JULY 27 THEY'RE NOT SURE WHAT TO DO IN THE INTERIM THERE TALKING ABOUT CUTTING DOWN THE DOSING THEY ARE TRYING TO SEE IF THAT WILL WORK SO THEY CAN STRETCH IT OUT A LITTLE BIT MORE >> HOW ARE SUPPLIES OF THE COMPARATIVE DRUG? >> IT IS INTERESTING

THAT STEROID HAS BEEN AROUND SINCE THE 1960S IT IS SOMETHING THAT HAS BEEN USED SINCE THE DAY I WALKED INTO A HOSPITAL AND STARTED TREATING PATIENTS IT HAS BEEN SUCH A CHEAP MEDICATION THAT IT IS ON'S EXPECTED TO FIND OUT IT IS IN SHORT SUPPLY HAVING THAT ON THE SHORTAGE LIST GETS CONCERNING SO THE ISSUE IS MAKING SURE THE SUPPLY IS RAMPED UP AND MAKING SURE DISTRIBUTION HAPPENS

WE DON'T WANT TO REPEAT THE VENTILATOR ISSUE THAT HAPPENED IN APRIL WHERE SOME STATES WERE CLAMMING FOR VENTILATORS AND OTHER STATES HAD THEM BUT WEREN'T USING THEM IT'S GOING TO TAKE A CENTRALIZED ORGANIZATION THAT IS JUST NOT HERE YET >> DR, COULD YOU EXPLAIN HOW CONVALESCENT PLASMA TREATMENT WORKS AND WHAT THE DEMAND IS? >> SO WHAT HAPPENS IS YOU GET THE PLASMA WHICH IS A BLOOD PRODUCT YOU GET FROM SOMEBODY WHO HAD COVID-19 AND RECOVERED THEY WAITED 14 DAYS AND THERE ARE ANTIBODIES BUILT UP AND THEN THEY DONATE BLOOD

THAT HAS ARE ANTIBODIES IN IT TO FIGHT COVID- 19 IF YOU GIVE IT TO A PATIENT NOW FIGHTING COVID- 19 BUT NOT DOING IT SUCCESSFULLY IT GIVES THEM A BOOST OF ANTIBODIES IT LETS THE BODY TAKE OVER AFTER THAT AND THEY HAVE THE LIFE- SAVING BOOST TO GET THEM THROUGH THE WORST PART OF COVID-19 THERE IS A SHORTAGE RIGHT NOW BECAUSE OF ALL THE CASES BEING DIAGNOSED AND THE FACT THAT DOCTORS ARE STARTING TO USE IT EARLIER IN THE TREATMENT THE WORD HAS BEEN PUT OUT, IF YOU RECOVERED AND IT HAS BEEN A COUPLE OF WEEKS THINK ABOUT GIVING BLOOD

THAT COULD BE LIFE-SAVING >> DR LET'S TALK ABOUT SCHOOL REOPENING RIGHTS UNIVERSITY SAYS IT'S GOING TO HAVE CLASSES IN OUTDOOR TENTS HOW DOES THAT REDUCE THE SPREAD OF THE VIRUS AND ARE THERE OTHER RISKS THAT COME WITH A PLAN LIKE THAT? >> YES

THERE OTHER RISKS OVERALL IT DOES REDUCE THE RISK OF GETTING COVID- 19 BECAUSE WE KNOW THAT IT DOES NOT PASSED FROM PERSON TO PERSON AS WELL OUTDOORS AS INDOORS BECAUSE INDOORS YOU HAVE A HARDER TIME AS SOCIAL DISTANCING AND BECAUSE OF THE AIRFLOW INDOORS THAT VIRUS CAN GET MORE DILUTED OUTDOORS IT MAKES SENSE THEY CAN TAKE CARE OF IT OUTSIDE WHERE THEY HAVE LESS OF A CHANCE OF GETTING IT

ON THE OTHER HAND WE HAVE HEAT WAVE AFTER HEAT WAVE AND ESPECIALLY IN AREAS WHERE THE HEAT AND HUMIDITY ARE HUGE FACTORS IT WILL BE DIFFICULT TO PUT STUDENTS, ESPECIALLY YOUNGER STUDENTS INTENSE AND TEACH THEM IT WILL HAVE TO BE LOOKED AT LOCATION BY LOCATION IT MIGHT WORK FOR SOME PEOPLE IN AREAS WHERE THE TEMPERATURE AND HUMIDITY ARE NOT THAT BAD IN OTHER AREAS IT MAY NOT WORK AS WELL

THEY NEED TO HAVE CONTINGENCY PLANS TO MOVE PEOPLE INDOORS AND NOT GET KIDS BACK IN SCHOOL UNTIL THEY HAVE THOSE PLANS IN PLACE >> DR, WHAT IS YOUR BEST ADVICE FOR PARENTS WHO ARE NERVOUS ABOUT SENDING GRADESCHOOL KIDS BACK TO SCHOOL WHAT PRECAUTIONS SHOULD THEY TAKE WITH THEIR LITTLE ONES? >> THE MAIN THING NOW IS TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY UNDERSTAND WHY THEY SHOULD WEAR MASKS AND WASH THEIR HANDS AND MAKE THAT HABITUAL IN THE FAMILY SO WHEN THEY GO TO SCHOOL IT IS THE HABIT THEY PICKED UP ON AND CONTINUE TO DO ALSO LOOK AT THE SCHOOL

SCHOOL SCHOOL SYSTEMS HAVE A LOT OF INFORMATION AS THE SCHOOL QUESTIONS WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO MY STUDENT AND THE STAFF AND EVERYBODY ELSE SAFE IF YOU HAVE RISKY PEOPLE AT HOME WITH PRE- EXISTING CONDITIONS OR IMMUNE SUPPRESSED THEN YOU WANT TO BE EXTRA CAREFUL AND MAKE SURE THEY ARE TAKEN CARE OF AND AS THE SCHOOL SYSTEM, WHAT HAPPENS IF THERE IS A STUDENT WITH COVID-19 DO YOU HAVE A WAY TO GET THEM AWAY FROM OTHER PEOPLE

OF A USING A POD SYSTEM? LOOK AT TRANSPORTATION HOW ARE THE KIDS GETTING TO SCHOOL ARE THERE ON A BUS WITH STUDENTS FROM A DIFFERENT POD? THAT'S NOT A GOOD THING SO DO YOUR HOMEWORK NOW BEFORE YOUR STUDENTS HAVE TO DO THEIR HOMEWORK COME SCHOOL TIME >> THANK YOU

IT IS SO MUCH TO THINK ABOUT NO WONDER EDUCATORS AND PARENTS ARE CONCERNED THEY HAVE A LOT TO CONSIDER THANK YOU FOR RUNNING US THROUGH THAT >> YOU BET

>> THE COUNTRY DEBATES HOW TO REOPEN SCHOOLS AND ONE PRESCHOOL MADE A GUIDE OUR CORRESPONDENT GOT AN EXCLUSIVE LOOK INSIDE THE SCHOOL FOR HER ONGOING SERIES, THE NEW NORMAL >> CLOSE CONTACT WITH ANYONE DIAGNOSED WITH COVID-19? >> NO >> OKAY A NEW ROUTINE AT A SCHOOL IN NEW JERSEY

NO ONE WITH A TEMPERATURE OF 100 4 AND ABOVE CAN COME TO SCHOOL PARENT SAY GOODBYE OUTSIDE >> HOW DIFFERENCE IS IT GETTING YOUR CHILD BACK INTO SCHOOL? >> DIFFERENT WE'LL GO INTO THE SCHOOL AT ALL

THE KIDS WEAR MASKS MOST OF THE TIME INSIDE OUTSIDE THEY DON'T HAVE TO >> I FEEL LITTLE BIT SAFER I DON'T MIND TAKING EXTRA TIME TO DO THIS >> I AM ON THE PLAYGROUND AT THE WESTFIELD DAY CARE CENTER

THE KIDS ARE OUT AND PLAYING IN SCHOOL IS IN SESSION HOW DID YOU GET THE SCHOOL READY TO REOPEN SAFELY? >> WE HAD TO FOLLOW THE STATE GUIDELINES AND THE CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL AND PREVENTION RECOMMENDATIONS AND GUIDELINES >>REPORTER: USING THE GUIDELINES THEY REDUCED CAPACITY INSTEAD OF 100 STUDENTS FOR SUMMER, THEY ARE LIMITED TO 40 AND THEY ARE DIVIDED INTO GROUPS OF 10 OR WHAT THEY CALL PODS REDUCING CONTACT WITH OTHER STUFF SOMEONE GETS SICK THE QUAD CAN BE TEAMED

STUDENTS AND TEACHERS ARE ALLOWED INSIDE DURING SCHOOL HOURS WE ASKED STAFF TO TAKE A VIDEO FOR US THE KIDS ARE SIX FEET APART MASKS ARE NOT REQUIRED BUT SOME KIDS LOVE TO WEAR THEM AND HAVE TO BE REMINDED TO TAKE THEM OFF AT NAP TIME EACH CHILD BRINGS THEIR SUPPLIES AND LUNCHES DIFFERENT AS WELL

THEY NEED AT THEIR DESK INSTEAD OF THE CAFETERIA >> IT GIVES THEM AN OPPORTUNITY FOR TO SEEM LIKE A SUMMER CAMP LIKE ALMOST EVERYTHING ELSE HAPPENS OUTSIDE INCLUDING ARTS AND CRAFTS THE STUDENTS ROTATE THROUGH DIFFERENT STATIONS TO KEEP THEM SEPARATED PE IS RUNNING AROUND IN THE SPRINKLERS

AFTER PLAYGROUND TIME STAFFERS SANITIZE ALL HIGH TOUCH SERVICES IN ADDITION'S TO SOCIAL DISTANCING HANDWASHING IS A NORMAL >> KIDS COME OUT ONE AT A TIME AT PICK UP PARENTS WAIT SOCIAL DISTANCING OUTSIDE >> WHEN KIDS GET SICK WE SEND THEM HOME

NOT COVERT RELATED WE FOLLOW OUR NORMAL PROCEDURES IF IT IS COVERT RELATED WE HAVE TO CALL THE HEALTH DEPARTMENT AND FOLLOW THEIR RECOMMENDATION >> THIS IS PART OF THE CAREFUL PLAN TO KEEP THE KIDS IN SCHOOL SAFELY >>> VICKI JOINS ME NOW THIS PREQUEL SEEMS TO HAVE IT DOWN TO A SCIENCE

HOW IS THE SCHOOL PREPARING FOR THE UPCOMING FLU SEASON >> GOOD TO SEE YOU >> YES THEY WILL CONTINUE TO SOCIAL DISTANCE THEY HAVE A BIG INDOOR SPACE TO USE AS WELL

THEY WILL CONTINUE TO TAKE TEMPERATURES AND REMIND PARENTS THAT NOW MORE THAN EVER THEY SHOULD KEEP THEIR KIDS HOME IF THEY ARE SICK SOMETHING ELSE THE SCHOOL IS DOING IS KEEPING THOSE KIDS IN SMALL GROUPS OF LEARNING PODS IF SOMEONE GETS SICK AND HAS COVID-19 YOU CAN EASILY ISOLATE THAT POD AND PUT THEM INTO QUARANTINE AND HOPEFULLY IT DOES IT AFFECT THE ENTIRE REST OF THE SCHOOL >> IT SEEMED LIKE A SMART STRATEGY THEY HAVE BEEN TALKING ABOUT THOSE PODS

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR TAKING US INSIDE THAT SCHOOL >> GREAT PERIOD FOR ALL >>> NEWS MADE FOR YOUR STREAMING WORLD LIVE WEEKDAYS STARTING AT 6 AM EASTERN >>> AMONG THE CHAOS ANOTHER FATHER TRYING TO TEACH HIS SON ABOUT PEACE

I HAVE TO ASK WHETHER THE PARTY CAN TURN THIS AROUND SO THIS IS AN ENGINE FOR POLITICAL CHANGE PEOPLE ARE NOT SIX FEET APART FROM EACH OTHER OR YOU ARE WORRIED THAT THIS COULD LEAD TO MORE? >> >>> RUSH IS TRYING TO DO CORONAVIRUS VACCINE VIRUS RESEARCH OUR FOREIGN RRESPONDENT JOINS US FROM LONDON AND HOW IS RUSSIA GOING ABOUT THIS AND HAVE THEY HAD ANY SUCCESS? WE GO THEY ARE DOING IT THE SAME WAY THEY DID BACK IN 2016 WHEN RUSSIAN HACKERS INFILTRATED THE DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL COMMITTEE SERVERS AND THE SAME ACTORS AND THE SAME MESSAGES HACKED IN AND RELEASED DATA AND INFORMATION

SO FAR WE HAVE HEARD THAT THEY HAVE NOT ACTUALLY, THERE IS NO REAL EVIDENCE IF THEY HAVE STOLEN ANY INFORMATION INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES SAW THESE HACKING GROUPS INSIDE THE SERVERS SNOOPING AROUND BUT THEY SAW NO EVIDENCE OF ESPIONAGE AND NO REAL EVIDENCE THEY STOLE ANYTHING BUT HERE IS THE THING THEY NEVER HAVE EVIDENCE ALL THEY CAN SEE IS EVIDENCE THAT THEY GOT INTO THE SYSTEM IT IS NOT ENTIRELY CLEAR WHAT THE RUSSIANS TOOK OR IF THEY TOOK ANYTHING AT ALL >> MATT, WHAT ELSE CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT THIS GROUP? >> YES

COZY A KA 29, THE DUKES THEY HAVE KNOWN THEY ARE CONNECTED WITH FANCY BEAR THAT HAS ALSO BEEN HACKING AND WAS IMPLICATED THIS GROUP HAS BEEN SEEN THROUGHOUT THE WORLD DOING SOME DIRTY TRICKS AND A LOT OF INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES THE US

, UK AND CANADA ALL SAID THEY REALLY STRONGLY BELIEVE THAT COZY BEAR IS BEING RUN AND OPERATED BY RUPP RUSSIAN INTELLIGENCE AND THAT IS WHY THEY SEE THIS AS A HALLMARK OF A RUSSIAN INTELLIGENCE OPERATION COZY BEAR WAS THERE USING SPEARFISHING AND OTHER THINGS I MENTIONED AND SHOWED GOES TO SHOW THAT RUSSIAN INTELLIGENCE IS PROBABLY ADDED AGAIN >> MATT, THAT IS NOT SURPRISING WHAT — YES? >> I SAID I SPOKE WITH KAREN MARTIN

SHE'S WAS THE HEAD OF THE NATIONAL CYBER SECURITY CENTER HERE IS WHAT I LEARNED >> IT IS NOT A SURPRISE IT IS DEPLORABLE AND WE ARE TRYING TO MAKE SURE THAT OTHER PEOPLE CANNOT DEFEND AGAINST IT >> SO I HAVE TO TELL YOU, ONE DETAIL HE MENTIONED PARALLELS BETWEEN FIGHTING THE VIRUS AND AGAINST HACKING

HE MENTIONED DIGITAL HYGIENE THERE ARE SIMPLE THINGS YOU CAN DO WITH YOUR COMPUTER EASY THINGS, DON'T CLICK ON SUSPICIOUS EMAILS BASICALLY, CLEANUP YOURSELF AND YOUR COMPUTER TO PREVENT THIS >> A GREAT COMPARISON

I LOVE THAT THERE ARE REPORTS THAT RUSSIA TRIED TO INTERFERE IN THE UK GENERAL ELECTION WHAT HAPPENED THERE? OKAY IT IS HUGE NEWS AND IN THE UK THAT IS BIGGER NEWS THAN THE EVIDENCE OF COMPROMISING THESE INSTITUTIONS RESEARCHING COVERT VACCINES

AS FAR AS THE BRITISH ARE CONCERNED THIS JUST GOES TO SHOW THAT DOCUMENTS THE CAME INTO THE POSITION OF JEREMY CORBIN HE WAS THE LEADER OF THE LABOR PARTY THOSE DOCUMENTS WERE LEAKED FROM DISCUSSIONS BETWEEN THE US AND THE UK ABOUT THE NATIONAL HEALTH SERVICE

THAT IS AN INSTITUTION THAT IS WIDELY RESPECTED IN BRITAIN AND WIDELY CRITICIZED YOU CAN'T PICK UP A NEWSPAPER HERE WITHOUT THEM SLAMMING THE NHS THEY DON'T WANT TO SEE IT BEING SOLD AS THEY SAID TO PRIVATE CORPORATIONS THAT IS ONE OF THE THINGS THAT THIS DOCUMENT HIT ON AND IT EMBARRASSED BORIS JOHNSON AND SOMETHING THAT THE LABOUR PARTY WAS VERY WILLING TO PROMOTE AND SHOW THAT THEY HAD THIS INFORMATION THE UNITED KINGDOM WAS TALKING ABOUT ALLOWING PRIVATE COMPANIES TO HAVE A ROLE IN THE NHS IN BRITAIN

THAT DOESN'T SOUND CONTROVERSIAL BUT IN BRITAIN THAT IS VERY CONTROVERSIAL IT'S LIKE SELLING THE INSTITUTION AND MANY PEOPLE SAY THIS IS THE BEST IN THE WORLD >> IF ANYONE HAD ANY QUESTION IF WE WERE SUSCEPTIBLE TO RUSSIAN HACKERS, I THINK YOU ANSWER THAT FOR US THANK YOU SO MUCH >> HOW DID BIT COOLING SCAMMERS GET CONTROL OF HIGH PROFILE TWITTER ACCOUNTS? BARACK OBAMA, JOE BIDEN, BILL GATES, ITALY AND MUST, KANYE WEST, JUST SOME OF THE NAMES THAT WERE HACKED

THOSE ACCOUNTS WERE USED TO POST A MESSAGE ASKING FOR BIG COIN IF YOU SEND 1000 I WILL SEND BACK 2000 BAN, WHAT YOU KNOW SO FAR ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED AND HOW BAD WAS THE DAMAGE? DO WE HAVE ANY IDEA? >> SURE THE DAMAGES BAD AND MIGHT BE WORSE THAN WE CURRENTLY KNOW A GROUP OF HACKERS EITHER CONVINCE THE TWITTER EMPLOYEE OR GOT A TOUR EMPLOYEE TO WORK ON THEIR BEHALF TO GO BEHIND THE SCENES AND USE LIKE A CONTROL PANEL TO ALLOW THEM TO CONTROL ANY ACCOUNT ON TWITTER

THEY CHANGE THE PASSWORD AND SENT A PASSWORD CHANGE TO AN EMAIL ADDRESS THAT ONLY THE HACKERS CONTROLLED THAT IS HOW THEY USED BARACK OBAMA'S ACCOUNT AND MORE THEY COULD HAVE USED ANYBODY ON TWITTER THE SCARY PART IS THAT WE DON'T KNOW IF THOSE DIRECT MESSAGES THOSE PEOPLE WERE SENDING, WE DON'T KNOW IF THOSE WERE HACKED WE DON'T KNOW THEY ARE PUBLICLY AVAILABLE AND WE MAY NOT KNOW UNLESS THEY EXIST AND ARE RELEASED

>> SO THE SENATOR WANTS TWITTER TO WORK WITH THE FBI HE SAID A SUCCESSFUL ATTACK ON YOUR SYSTEM SERVERS REPRESENTS A RISK TO EVERYONE'S ACCOUNT >> THE DOJ HAS BEEN QUIET THEY DON'T HAVE NOT GOTTEN THE ANSWERS YET THEY CAN'T GET TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS WITHOUT WORKING WITH THE FBI AND WORKING WITH PEOPLE WHO WORK IN MONEY LAUNDERING AND THINGS LIKE THAT

THE BEST CASE SCENARIO HERE IS THAT SOME PEOPLE WHO ARE TRYING TO FILL UP A BIG COIN ACCOUNT GOT ON TWITTER DID THE DUMBEST POSSIBLE BANK HEIST USE THE TWITTER ACCOUNT OF FAMOUS PEOPLE THAT IS WHY INVESTIGATORS AND LAWMAKERS ARE GOING TO GET TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS IF THE BEST CASE SCENARIO IS THAT SOMEBODY GETS MILKED OUT OF $300,000, THAT'S NOT A BEST CASE >> IT SOUND LIKE A MOVIE

I WOULDN'T BE SURPRISED IF IT BECOMES ONE THESE HACKERS GOT TO A FORMER PRESIDENT, PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE, WHAT CONCERNS DOES THIS RAISE ABOUT ALEXA AND SECURITY COME NOVEMBER WE ARE GETTING EVER CLOSER >> >>> THAT WE SHOULD BE PRETTY SCARED ALMOST EVERY TECH REPORTER I KNOW DID NOT KNOW THIS WAS AVAILABLE

SOMEBODY COULD ACTUALLY SEE ACCOUNTS AND TWEET FROM ANY ACCOUNT THAT MEANS THERE ARE PEOPLE THAT CAN DO THAT TODAY IF THEY ARE COMPROMISED, THEY CAN START A REAL MESS WITH THE DEMOCRACY BY THE WAY, WE WERE TALKING ABOUT RUSSIA RUSSIAN INTELLIGENCE HAS PRETENDED TO BE BIT COIN SCAMMERS

THEY TOOK RANSOM ATTACKS TARGETED AT BIG COIN AND USED IT TO GO AFTER PEOPLE'S PRIVATE INFORMATION THAT MAYBE WHAT IS HAPPENING THAT IS WHY EVERYONE IS REALLY AFRAID HERE IS NOT ABOUT $300,000 IT IS ABOUT REALLY DANGEROUS STUFF

>> YES WHO IS DOING THIS AND WHAT DO THEY HAVE THEIR HANDS ON A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE WORRIED ABOUT IT THANKS FOR TELLING US WHAT WE HAVE FIGURED OUT SO FAR >> THANK YOU

>> OKAY PRESIDENT TRUMP REPLACES HIS MANAGER WITH THE DEPUTY POLL NUMBERS ARE RISING FAST BUT A NEW WALL STREET JOURNAL POLL GIVES JOE BIDEN AN 11 POINT LEAD OVER THE PRESIDENT NATIONALLY THE PRESIDENT ALSO HAS A 50% PROBLEM 50% DISAGREE WITH HIM

>> YES THAT SEEMS TO BE THE WORD WE ARE HEARING WHERE IS THAT COMING FROM? TELL US MORE ABOUT THAT WHAT IS HE DOING HERE? >> HE HAS BEEN THE GUIDING LIGHT BEHIND A LOT OF THE CAMPAIGN AND CHANNELING THE PRESIDENT AND TURNING A CAMPAIGN STRATEGY AT THE END OF THE DAY YOU NEED THE CAMPAIGN MANAGER TO TAKE ON THE SENIOR ADVISOR TO THE PRESIDENT WHOSE DEPUTY WILL TAKE OVER AS A CAMPAIGN MANAGER

WHAT IS INTERESTING IS OFTENTIMES WHEN PEOPLE GET FIRED OR DEMOTED THAT THEY GET THROWN UNDER THE BUS HERE WE ARE SEEING SOMETHING DIFFERENT THEY ARE TRYING TO SHOW CONTINUITY BETWEEN THE OLD AND THE NEW CAMPAIGN MANAGER AND SHOWING THIS IS A SHIFT BUT NOT UPENDING THE WHOLE CAMPAIGN THE NEW CAMPAIGN MANAGER SAID IN A STATEMENT IN WHICH HE DISCUSSES THAT EXACT CONTINUITY HE SAID PRESIDENT TRUMP AND [ INAUDIBLE ] BASED ON DATA AND TECHNOLOGY AND REMAINS HEAVILY INVOLVED

SOURCES CLOSE TO THE CAMPAIGN SAID THERE WAS A MEETING AT THE CAMPAIGN HEADQUARTERS IN ARLINGTON THIS MORNING WHERE THERE WAS A CEREMONIAL HAND OVER THE REINS OF RUNNING THE CAMPAIGN AND TRYING TO SHOW THE TEAM IS STILL WORKING TOGETHER >> JOSH, THE RNC IS SCALING BACK ITS CONVENTION IN JACKSONVILLE NEXT MONTH BECAUSE OF THE CORONAVIRUS THREE KNOW SPECIFICALLY HOW THEY ARE DOING THAT AND WHAT THEY ARE CHANGING? >> WE ARE GETTING NEW DETAILS FROM THE CHAIR [ INAUDIBLE ] BASICALLY THEY ARE GOING TO HAVE A CONVENTION WHERE THE FIRST THREE DAYS ARE RESTRICTED TO ONLY ACTUAL DELEGATES YOU WON'T HAVE SUPPORTERS THERE AS WELL ON THE FINAL DAY, THEY WILL EXPEND THAT A LITTLE BIT AND ALLOW DELEGATES AND ONE GUEST ON TO THE CONVENTION FLOOR

I WAS SPEAKING TO THE SUPERINTENDENT HERE OF THE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION WHICH IS COMPLETELY SEPARATE FROM THE BOARD OF EDUCATION, HE HAD A SCATHING RESPONSE FOR THE BOARD'S DECISION HE SAID IT WAS A FORM OF MALPRACTICE TAKE A LISTEN >> THEY ARE MOST CERTAINLY CONFUSING THE SITUATION QUITE FRANKLY, I THINK IT IS AN ETHICAL THTHISSUE HERE, A FORM OF MALPRACTICE

OUR JOB IS TO PROTECT STUDENTS AT ALL COST THE NUMBER ONE TS THING PARENTS WANT ACROSS THE COUNTRY, FOR THEIR KIDS TO BE SAFE IT IS UNCONSCIONABLE FOR US TO SUGGEST , IT IS A VERY SERIOUS PROBLEM THE PANDEMIC IS SOMETHING WE HAVE TO HEED WITH A GREAT AMOUNT OF RELIGIONS >> Reporter: HE SAID IT WAS S A DECISION CLEARLY DRIVEN OR A BEING DRIVEN BY POLITICS AND THAT MANY EXPERTS I TALKED TO ABOUT THE SITUATION CURRENTLY PLAYING OUT IN ORANGE COUNTY IS HOW ORANGE COUNTY %%%ENDED UP IN THIS MESS IN THE FIRST PACE ALLOWING POLITICS TO DECIDE POLICY

A LOT OF FOLKS LIVE IN MULTIGENERATIONAL HOMES, SOMEONE COMES HOME WITH THE VIRUS CAN SPREAD QUICKLY HE IS TRYING TO PROMOTE THE IDEA OF WASHING OF THE HANDS, WEARING OF THE MASK AND STAYING AWAY FROM THOSE LARGE GATHERINGS IN ORDER TO CONTAIN THE VIRUS HERE IN THE VALLEY ALISON >> PRISCILLA, I WANT TO ASK ABOUT THE GOVERNOR A LOT OF PEOPLE WONDERED IF HE MIGHT SHUTDOWN THE STATE AGAIN

HERE IS WHAT HE SAID >> PEOPLE ARE PANICKING THINKING I WILL SHUT DOWN TAXES AGAIN THE ANSWER IS NO, THAT IS NOT THE WHOLE I'VE BEEN ABUNDANTLY CLEAR, ALL WE NEED IS FOR PEOPLE TO WEAR MASKS IF EVERYONE WEARS A MASK, NOTHING WILL BE LOCKED DOWN

>> HOW OUR LOCAL OFFICIALS WRECKING TO THAT, IS THAT THE NEWS THEY WANT TO HEAR? >> Reporter: CERTAINLY NOT THE NEWS THEY WANT TO HEAR, ALISON LOCAL OFFICIALS ACROSS THE STATE HAVE BEEN CALLING FOR THE GOVERNOR TO GRANT THEM THE POWER TO ISSUE SOME SORT OF STAY-AT-HOME ORDERS IN THEIR JURISDICTIONS FOR WEEKS NOW BUT THAT NOT HAPPENED I WANT TO POINT OUT, GOVERNOR ABBOTT MADE THE STATEMENT YOU JUST PLAYED HOURS AFTER THE STATE RELEASED A NEW DAILY RECORD IN TERMS OF DEATHS AND POSITIVE CASES ON YESTERDAY YOU KNOW, THE DOCTORS I HAVE SPOKEN TO SAID I THINK THE NEXT WEEK WILL BE CRUCIAL IN TERMS OF WHAT HAPPENS NEXT HERE WE SAW THE GOVERNOR SHUTDOWN BARS THREE WEEKS AGO, HE REQUIRED MANDATORY MASK ORDER TWO WEEKS AGO

TECHNICALLY, THERE IS THE PENALTY OF $500 FINE AND POTENTIAL JAIL TIME FOR THOSE WHO DO NOT COMPLY WITH THE ORDER THE GOVERNOR SAID THAT WILL NOT BE ENFORCED, EMPHASIZED PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY ON EVERYBODY TO DO THEIR PART THEY DON'T WANT TO GET INVOLVED, PUNITIVE MOST POLICE DEPARTMENT SAY THEY WILL NOT ARREST ANYBODY THEY WILL GENTLY REMIND PEOPLE WHY MASKS ARE IMPORTANT

THEY ARE TAKING THE EDUCATION FIRST APPROACH THERE ARE SEVERAL COUNTIES IN ALABAMA THAT HAVE HAD LOCAL MASK MANDATES IN PLACE WE WERE IN BIRMINGHAM A COUPLE DAYS AGO WHICH IS JEFFERSON COUNTY WHERE THERE IS A MASK MANDATE DURING THE RUNOFF ON TUESDAY FOR JEFF SESSIONS VERSUS TOMMY TUBERVILLE RUNOFF , TOMMY TUBERVILLE VOTERS SAID THEY WORE THEIR MASKS INSIDE THE POLLING PLACE WHERE TOMMY TUBERVILLE SAID HE DOES NOT THINK THE MASK MANDATE IS A GOOD IDEA NONETHELESS, STOPPED PEOPLE THERE WEARING THEIR MASK

ARE YOU WORRIED THESE TWO CRISES PALE IN RISK OF TRANSMISSION WITH ONGOING PROTESTS? ,, >>> 156 NEW DEATHS REPORTED IN FLORIDA, THE STATE'S HIGHEST ONE-DAY INCREASE YET THE HOSPITALS THERE ARE RUNNING OUT OF SPACE THE STATE HEALTH DEPARTMENT SAYS 16 % OF ICU BEDS ARE NOW AVAILABLE WE HAVE A CORRESPONDENT OUTSIDE JACKSON HOSPITAL OUTSIDE OF MIAMI WHAT IS THE SITUATION TODAY? >> Reporter: THERE ARE CLOSE TO 14,000 NEW CASES OF COVID- 19 ACROSS THE STATE OF FLORIDA, AROUND 3000 OF THOSE COME FROM MIAMI DADE COUNTY WHERE WE ARE NOW AT JACKSON MEMORIAL HOSPITAL, DOCTORS SAY THEY ARE PUSHED TO THE BRINK RIGHT NOW IN THIS COUNTY

THE COUNTY SAYS ABOUT 27 % OF THE TEST HAPPENING HIM AND 27 % ARE COMING BACK POSITIVE ONE OF THE DOCTORS WE SPOKE TO HEAR THAT WORKS IN CRITICAL CARE AND IS A TRAUMA SURGEON, HE SAID NOT ONLY OUR THEIR STAFF RUNNING LOW ON SUPPLIES, RUNNING LOW ON ENERGY, SOME OF THEM HAVE COME DOWN WITH COVID- 19 THEMSELVES THAT ARE SICK THEY ARE DOING THE BEST THEY CAN WITH LIMITED RESOURCES AND RIGHT NOW SAYS THEY ARE VERY MUCH PUSHED TO THE BRINK LISTEN HERE >> WE ARE DOING THE BEST WE CAN, WE ARE BUSTING AT THE SEAMS AND HAVE BEEN

WE ARE TRYING TO MAKE MORE ROOM AND SPACE AND TRYING TO GET MORE STAFF, REQUESTING IT FROM THE GOVERNOR AND FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AS FAST AS WE GET THE PATIENT'S BUT THE PATIENTS KEEP SHOWING UP >> Reporter: THEY ARE TREATING HUNDREDS OF CORONAVIRUS PATIENTS INSIDE THE HOSPITAL RIGHT NOW, THE CONCERN IS IF SOMETHING DOES NOT CHANGE, THESE NUMBERS WILL KEEP RISING AND OF COURSE IN ADDITION TO THE PATIENTS WITH COVID-19, THEY HAVE OTHER PATIENTS COMING HERE AS WELL THEY SAID IT WAS SO HARD FOR HIM TO SEE OVER THE COURSE OF WORKING HERE IN RECENT WEEKS, HE SAID AS A TRAUMA SURGEON, TREAT PATIENTS, HAVE PATIENCE, IN FOR SOMETHING ELSE, A BROKEN BONE OR SOME OTHER TYPE OF SURGERY, BEFORE THE SURGERY, TESTED FOR COVID-19 AND BECAUSE THEY HAVE SYMPTOMS BECAUSE OF THE TEST THEY HAVE WITH THE VIRUS, HARD TO PUT INTO ANY SORT OF CLEAR WORDS, CLEAR DESCRIPTION SHOCKING TO SEE HOW QUICKLY HELP PEOPLE COME IN NOT KNOWING THEY HAVE COVID-19 FOR SOME OTHER SURGERY, FIND OUT THEY HAVE IT AND QUICKLY DETERIORATE THAT IS A COMMON OCCURRENCE

I THINK THEY SEE MORE AND MORE EVERYTHING ALL DAY >> WHAT HELP OUR FLORIDA HOSPITALS GETTING, ARE THEY RECEIVING THE RESOURCES THEY TRULY NEED? >> Reporter: THEY ARE ASKING MORE FROM THE FEDERAL LEVEL AND STATE LEVEL THIS HOSPITAL, THEY ASKED FOR MORE STAFF THEY HAD A NUMBER OF DOCTORS, NURSES CONTRACT COVID- 19 THEMSELVES SO THEY ARE ABLE TO WORK, THE GOVERNOR APPROVED AND SENT 100 NURSES TO HELP OUT THEY NEED TRAINING BEFORE THEY CAN NECESSARILY START IN THIS POST HOSPITAL, THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT ASKED TO SEND ADDITIONAL PERSONNEL ACCORDING TO GOVERNOR RON DESANTIS

ANOTHER THING THEY ARE ASKING FOR MORE OF FROM THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IS REMDESIVIR, AN ANTIVIRAL DRUG DOCTORS SAY HAS BEEN EFFECTIVE HELPING COVID-19 PATIENTS IN TERMS OF LESSENING THEIR SYMPTOMS SO THEY BECOME STABLE ENOUGH THAT ALLEVIATE THE BURDEN ON MANY OF THESE HOSPITALS RIGHT HERE, DOCTORS AND OTHER DOCTORS IN MIAMI DADE COUNTY SAY THEY ARE RUNNING LOW ON IT OR COMPLETELY OUT OF IT SENATOR MARCO RUBIO TWEETED EARLIER TODAY IN HIS VIEW, THERE IS DISCONNECT BETWEEN WHAT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT THINKS THEY NEED IN FLORIDA AND WHAT THEY ACTUALLY NEED HE SAID THE PLANNED SHIPMENT FOR REMDESIVIR WHICH IS JULY 27 ACCORDING TO THE SENATOR IS WAY TOO LATE FOR THE HOSPITALS IN THE AREA GOVERNOR RON DESANTIS WAS ASKED ABOUT THAT EARLIER TODAY, HE SPOKE WITH THE VICE PRESIDENT LAST NIGHT AND FELT LIKE THE VICE PRESIDENT UNDERSTOOD

THEY NEED MORE SHIPMENTS, CONTINUING SUPPLIES OF REMDESIVIR AND THEY WILL GET IT DOCTORS AND HOSPITALS ON THE GROUND RIGHT NOW SAY THEY SIMPLY DON'T HAVE ENOUGH OF IT CURRENTLY, WHEN I EXPECT TO GET IT FROM THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, IT IS TOO LATE ALISON >> ELLISON, THERE IS NO STATEWIDE MATH MANDATE IN FLORIDA BUT THERE IS ONE IN MIAMI

DO LOCAL LEADERS THINKS THAT ENOUGH OR COULD MORE RESTRICTIONS BE ON THE WAY FOR THAT AREA? >> Reporter: IT SEEMS LIKE A DAY BY DAY DISCUSSION, DAY BY DAY EVALUATION THE MAYOR OF MIAMI SPOKE EARLIER TODAY, HE PLANS TO MEET WITH LOCAL BUSINESS LEADERS SOMETIME TOMORROW AND POTENTIALLY TALK ABOUT THE IDEA OF THE MOTHER SHUT DOWN LISTEN HERE >> PEOPLE OFTEN ASK IF WE OPEN TO SEND, NO ONE EVER ASKS IF WE CLOSED TOO SOON BECAUSE WHAT HAPPENED IN NEW YORK, YOU SAW SUCH DEVASTATION FEAR TOOK HOLD AND NOW I THINK THEY ARE EXTREMELY COMPLAINT HEAR WHAT YOU ARE SAYING IS CALLED AGGRESSIVE NONCOMPLIANCE

I THINK THAT IS DUE IN PART TO LACK OF FEAR >> Reporter: I SPOKE TO ANOTHER ONE OF THE MAYORS IN THE AREA, THE MAYOR OF MIAMI GARDENS, MAYOR GILBERT, HE FELT LIKE THE LOCKDOWN EARLIER WAS LIFTED TOO SOON TO WHERE PEOPLE DID NOT ESTABLISH SOME OF THE HABITS WE SEE IN OTHER PLACES LIKE NEW YORK THINGS CLOSE A LITTLE LONGER, GET USED TO THE IDEA OF WEARING MASKS AND MORE PEOPLE WOULD HAVE DONE IT AT THIS POINT, IT IS HARD TO SAY WHETHER OR NOT THAT WOULD BE THE CASE RIGHT NOW WE HAVE HEARD FROM MULTIPLE MAYORS IN THE AREA THEY ARE CONSIDERING AND LOOKING AT SOME SORT OF LOCKDOWN THERE WILL BE A DISCUSSION AT LEAST BETWEEN THE MAYOR OF MIAMI AND LOCAL BUSINESS LEADERS TOMORROW ALISON

>> YOU SAID IT, ELLISON ALSO TAKING THINGS DAY BY DAY AS THE SITUATION CONTINUES TO CHANGE THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR CONTINUED REPORTING APPRECIATE IT >>> COLORADO AND ALABAMA ARE NOW ISSUING MASK MANDATES

SOME OF THE BIGGEST CHAIN STORES LIKE TARGET AND CBS SITE NO MASKS NO SERVICE WE HAVE A DR JOINING US LIVE, SENIOR SCHOLAR AT JOHNS HOPKINS UNIVERSITY CENTER FOR HEALTH SECURITY IN THE LAST DAY, WE HAVE SEEN MORE STATES AND COMPANIES REQUIRING MASKS CAN YOU TALK ABOUT THE IMPACT THIS COULD HAVE ON CORONAVIRUS CASES AND TRANSMISSION? >> WE KNOW THERE ARE PEOPLE OUT THERE, ADULTS KNOW THEY ARE SICK AND CONTAGIOUS, WHAT MASKS SERVE TO DO 'S SERVE AS A FORM OF SOURCE CONTROL

WHEN PEOPLE COUGH OR SNEEZE, WHEN THEY TALK, THOSE PARTICLES ARE CAPTURED NOT NECESSARILY MASS, FACE SHIELDS DO THAT PEOPLE THAT DO NOT WANT TO WEAR MASKS, FACE SHIELDS MIGHT BE ANOTHER ALTERNATIVE AS WELL IT IS ABOUT STOPPING TRANSMISSION FROM OCCURRING AND THE FACT PEOPLE DON'T HAVE SYMPTOMS OR THEY DON'T THINK IT IS ANTIVIRUS AND THEY ARE CONTAGIOUS AND SPREADING THIS

>> WE HAVE OF YOUR QUESTION ABOUT MASKS TO ONE OF THE VIEWERS ASKED, SO MANY OPTIONS OUT THERE, EVEN BANDANNAS, SCARVES, WHAT IS THE MOST EFFECTIVE THING? >> IT IS IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER A MASK DOES NOT WORK IF YOU DO NOT WEAR IT PROPERLY MOST PEOPLE IN THE GENERAL PUBLIC DO NOT WEAR MASKS PROPERLY THEY HAVE THEIR NOSE STICKING OUT, TOUCHING THEIR FACE, TAKING IT ON AND OFF BANDANNA FLAPS BELOW THEIR MOUTH AND SERVES NO PURPOSE OTHER THAN TO CHECK A BOX YOU ARE WEARING A MASK THAT'S WHY I THINK IT IS IMPORTANT IF YOU WEAR A MASK, IT COVERS YOUR MOUTH AND YOUR NOSE AND REFRAIN FROM TOUCHING YOUR FACE

YOU STILL TO CONTINUE TO WASH YOUR HANDS AND SOCIAL DISTANCE DON'T THINK OF IT AS PANACEA, IT IS ADAMANT, WHAT WE ARE DOING WITH SOCIAL DISTANCING PEOPLE HAVE ADVOCATED FACE SHIELDS BECAUSE THEY COVER YOUR EYES AND PREVENT YOU FROM TOUCHING YOUR FACE YOU CAN WEAR THEM MUCH EASIER THESE ARE THINGS SOME STATES ARE LOOKING TOO AS WELL

>> HOW ABOUT PEOPLE WHO HAVE CONDITIONS LIKE ASTHMA? DOES WEARING A MASK AFFECT THEIR BREATHING AND WHAT SHOULD THEY BE DOING? >> NOT A USUAL TYPE OF SURGICAL MASK AS THAT WILL NOT AFFECT YOUR BREATHING IF YOU FEEL THE BREATHING IS CYCLED, PHYSIOLOGICALLY CHECK THEM, THEY LOOK OKAY IT IS DIFFERENT WEARING AN N-95 MASK WE DO NOT RECOMMEND N-95 MASKS BE WORN BY THE GENERAL PUBLIC A REGULAR MASK EVEN THOUGH IT FEELS LIKE IS NOT IMPEDING YOUR BREATHING, IT IS USUALLY NOT DOING ANYTHING OF THE SORT

>> WE HAVE OF YOUR QUESTION ABOUT SUMMER TRAVEL WE TALKED A LOT ABOUT AIR TRAVEL, THEY WANT TO KNOW ABOUT OTHER FORMS OF TRANSPORTATION LIKE BUSES AND TRAINS ARE THERE THE SAME CONCERNS THERE OR IS A DIFFERENT? >> WE NOTE TRANSMISSION OCCURS BEING IN CLOSE CONTACT WITH SOMEBODY WITH A VIRUS SIX FEET OR LESS FOR A PROLONGED PERIOD OF TIME, 10 OR 15 MINUTES ON AIRPLANES AT A SHORTER DURATION, MIDDLE SEATS ON MANY PLANES ARE OPEN YOU HAVE TO BE CAREFUL AND TRY TO SOCIAL DISTANCE EVEN IN THOSE SITUATIONS

I THINK ANYTHING CAN BE MORE OR LESS RELATIVELY SAFE THERE IS NOT A BLACK OR WHITE ANSWER TO THIS, YOU HAVE TO LOOK AT THE CIRCUMSTANCES A CRAMMED BUS CAN BE A PLACE WHERE TRANSMISSION CAN OCCUR, YOU CAN FIND A BUS THAT HAS DONE APPROPRIATE SOCIAL DISTANCING I ORT URGE PEOPLE TO LOOK AT THE TRANSPORTATION SEE WHAT TYPE OF MEASURES ARE IN PLACE AND LOOK AT THEIR OWN RISK TOLERANCE AND MAKE A DECISION INDIVIDUAL DECISION

>> DR AMESH ADALJA, I WILL ASK ANOTHER ISSUE WHERE THERE'S NO BLACK AND WHITE, THERE'S A LOT OF GRAY AREA WE HAVE SO MANY QUESTIONS ABOUT REOPENING SCHOOLS IN FLORIDA, THE KIDS ARE SUPPOSED TO GO BACK IN A FEW WEEKS SOME TEACHERS IN THE JACKSONVILLE AREA NOW SAY THEY WILL UPDATE THEIR WILLS BEFORE THEY GO BACK TO THE CLASSROOM

THAT IS HORRIFYING WHAT SHOULD TEACHERS BE DOING TO PROTECT THEMSELVES? >> WE HAVE TO REMEMBER SCHOOL CLOSURE WAS PREFACED ON THIS VIRUSLIKE INFLUENZA AND CHILDREN BEING MAGNIFIERS THAT IS CLEARLY NOT THE CASE CHILDREN ARE EPIDEMIOLOGIC WE RESPONSIBLE FOR A LOT OF CASES THE AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF PEDIATRICS AND NATIONAL ACADEMY OF MEDICINE SAID THIS IS SOMETHING WE CAN DO SAFE WE HAVE TO DO IT FOLLOWING SIGNS AND MAKE SURE SCHOOLS CHANGE THEIR POLICIES TO ALLOW SOCIAL DISTANCING AND LIMIT RISK TO TEACHERS AND OTHER PEOPLE WHO MIGHT BE INVOLVED WITH POPULATION

I THINK IT CAN BE DONE, IT WILL BE CHALLENGING IN PLACES LIKE FLORIDA AND TEXAS MANY STATES CAN DO IT WE KNOW FOR EXAMPLE IN WYOMING, MONTANA, AND IDAHO SCHOOLS HAVE OPENED AND HAVE NOT HAD PROBLEMS CHILDCARE CENTERS HAVE BEEN OPEN FOR ESSENTIAL WORKERS WE HAVE DATA ON OUR SIDE, MAKING SURE THE SCHOOL HAS TIME AND RESOURCES TO MAKE SURE THEIR PLACES OF LEARNING, PLACES WHERE THE VIRUS CANNOT HIT VULNERABLE PEOPLE

WILL BE CHALLENGING IN CERTAIN PLACES, I THINK WE CAN DO IT, IT SHOULD BE A PRIORITY AND NOT A POLITICAL ISSUE >> DR AMESH ADALJA, THANK YOU FOR COMING ON WITH US AGAIN THANK YOU FOR ANSWERING OUR VIEWER'S QUESTIONS >>> INCREASED NUMBER OF VOTERS SAY THE COUNTRY IS ON THE WRONG TRACK

THE MAJORITY NOT HAPPY WITH HOW THE PRESIDENT IS HANDLING THE CORONAVIRUS AND RACE RELATIONS LOCAL CORRESPONDENT, STEVE KORNACKI BREAKS DOWN THE LATEST NBC NEWS WALL STREET JOURNAL POLL >> Reporter: THE BOTTOM LINE 1st OF ALL WITH THE NBC NEWS WALL STREET JOURNAL POLL, BAD NEWS FOR THE PRESIDENT HERE, HE FINDS HIMSELF DOUBLE DIGITS BEHIND HIS PRESENT DEMOCRATIC OPPONENT, JOE BIDEN 51-40, 11 POINT GAP BIDEN OVER 50 %

WE TALKED SO MUCH ABOUT HOW HILLARY CLINTON LED DONALD TRUMP IN THE POLLING THROUGHOUT 2016, SHE WAS NOT GETTING OVER 50 % AGAINST DONALD TRUMP IN 2016, MAYBE THIRD-PARTY CANDIDATES, THE RACE GENERALLY TIGHTER THAN THAT NOT JUST BIDEN IS UP A, ALSO OVER THE 50 % MARK AT 51 WHAT IS GOING ON HERE, FIRST OF ALL, DEMOGRAPHICALLY, BIDEN IS AHEAD BY 11, TRUMP DOWN 11 ONE OF THE DIFFERENCES FROM 2016 WHEN TRUMP WON THE ELECTION, BIDEN LEADS OVERWHELMINGLY AMONG BLACK VOTERS, 86 THAT IS PRETTY MUCH WHAT WE SAW IN 2016 AS WELL

NOT A BIG DIFFERENCE THERE, PRETTY CONSISTENT SO IS THIS, EXPAND VOTING AGAIN THREE TO ONE JOE BIDEN OVER DONALD TRUMP, ABOUT ON PAR WITH WHAT WE SAW IN 2016 IS THE DIFFERENCE, WHITE VOTER 16 DONALD TRUMP IS LEADING, UP SEVEN POINTS AMONG WHITE VOTERS THAT IS DOWN FROM WHAT HE WAS IN THE 2016 ELECTION IN THE 2016 ELECTION, WHITE VOTERS WENT FOR DONALD TRUMP BY A 20 POINT MARGIN

YOU CAN SEE HERE, NOW IT IS ONLY 7 HE IS LEADING BUT THE LEAD HAS BEEN SLASHED GOING FURTHER, TWO GROUPS OF WHITE VOTERS THAT TEND TO VOTE VERY DIFFERENTLY AND INCREASINGLY SO THE ONE GROUP TRUMP HAS BEEN VERY STRONG WITH IS THIS GROUP, WHITE VOTERS WITHOUT A COLLEGE DEGREE

TRUMP IS LEADING HERE SOLIDLY, 22 POINT LEAD KEEP IN MIND, IN 2016, THIS GROUP OF VOTERS, A BIG GROUP OF VOTERS, THIS GROUP OF VOTERS IN 2016 WENT FOR TRUMP BY NEARLY 40 POINTS, IT IS 22 NOW THAT IS PROGRESS FOR BIDEN EVEN THOUGH TRUMP IS BLOWING HIM OUT OVERALL DENTISTS GROUP, WHITE VOTERS WITH A COLLEGE DEGREE THIS GROUP CONTESTED IN 2016, EXIT POLLS VERSUS POST ELECTION SURVEYS, SHOW DIFFERENT RESULTS FOR THE GROUP

I WOULD SAY COMPETITIVE, NOW IT'S NOT JOE BIDEN WITH 15 POINT EDGE HERE THERE'S BEEN A BIG SHIFT THERE IN THE WHITE VOTE, THAT IS WHY JOE BIDEN IS PULLING THE LARGE LEAD NATIONALLY THIS IS ALSO INTERESTING HERE, THIS POLL, SUPPORT CANDIDATES, SOME CHANCES, THERE'S NO CHANCE YOU WILL SUPPORT DONALD TRUMP, 15 % HALF THE PEOPLE IN OUR SURVEY SAID THERE IS NO CHANCE THEY WILL SUPPORT TRUMP

FOR BIDEN, ONLY 37 % SAID THAT SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCE HALF THE ELECTORATE SAYS NO CHANCE THEY WILL BE FOR TRUMP THESE NUMBERS ARE OBVIOUSLY VERY BAD FOR TRUMP IN ENCOURAGING FOR BIDEN WHAT IS INTERESTING, WE ASK VOTERS WHAT THEY THINK OF EACH CANDIDATE, NOT MUCH DIFFERENCE

39, 54, MUCH MORE UNPOPULAR THAN POPULAR IT IS TRUE, TRUMP ALSO TRUE OF BIDEN IT RAISES AN INTERESTING POSSIBILITY IT SEEMS NOT THIS OVERWHELMING POPULARITY SUPPORT FOR JOE BIDEN AS MUCH AS THERE IS JUST OPPOSITION TO DONALD TRUMP ESPECIALLY ON KEY ISSUES LIKE CORONAVIRUS, RACE RELATIONS, SEEMS TO BE DRIVING FOLKS AWAY FROM HIM A IF THEY ARE GOING AWAY FROM TRUMP, THEY'RE GOING TO BIDEN

THAT IS WHAT WE SEE IN OUR POLL >>>@EVENT TODAY AT THE SOUTH LAWN OF THE WHITE HOUSE, PRESIDENT TRUMP SAID HIS ADMINISTRATION SAVED AMERICAN LIVES BY ROLLING BACK REGULATIONS >> WERE RECLAIMING AMERICA'S PROUD HERITAGE AS A NATION OF ELDERS, MY ADMINISTRATION HAS ALSO ELIMINATED MASSIVE REGULATORY BARRIERS IN OUR BATTLE AGAINST THE CHINA VIRUS THESE ACTIONS SAVED COUNTLESS LIVES SPEEDING UP THE PRODUCTION OF EQUIPMENT, THAT MEANS VENTILATORS, LIKE NOBODY HAS EVER SEEN BEFORE >> NBCNEWS

COM SENIOR WHITE HOUSE REPORTER, SHANNON JOINS ME NOW WHAT WAS THE EVENT ABOUT AND WHAT ELSE CAME OUT OF IT? >> Reporter: THE EVENT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE ABOUT REGULATIONS THE ADMINISTRATION HAD FALL BACK ON , THEY HAD ERASED FROM THE BOOK, TALKING HOW THAT HELPED BUSINESSES AND HELPED SAVE CONSUMERS MONEY BUT AS WE HAVE SEEN WITH OTHER RECENT EVENTS, INCLUDING ONE EVENT EARLIER THIS WEEK AT THE ROSE GARDEN, THIS BECAME NEAR THE END A WHITE HOUSE EVENT THAT TURNED INTO A RALLY FROM THE WHITE HOUSE SOUTH LAWN WITH THE PRESIDENT ATTACKING JOE BIDEN, PARTICULARLY NEW LINE OF ATTACK, WE ONLY HEARD RECENTLY THE THREAT OF DEMOCRAT JOE BIDEN IS A HUGE THREAT, HE WILL DESTROY THE SUBURBS AND WAY OF LIFE OF PEOPLE IN THE SUBURBS IS A NEW THEME WE ARE HEARING FROM THE PRESIDENT HE REALLY GOT ON THAT AT THE END OF THE EVENT TODAY

>> SHANNON, WE HAVE SEEN THE PRESIDENT TRAILING JOE BIDEN IN RECENT POLLING TRUMP JUST REPLACED HIS CAMPAIGN MANAGER THEY ARE REPORTING THE PRESIDENT IS LOOKING TO PROFESSIONAL SPORTS TO GIVE HIM A REELECTION BOOST CAN YOU EXPLAIN THAT STRATEGY BOOST AND POTENTIAL PITFALL ? >> Reporter: WE TALKED A LOT ABOUT THIS, IN PARTICULAR WITH DR ANTHONY FAUCI WHO HAD QUESTIONS ABOUT WHETHER FOOTBALL OR BASEBALL CAN RETURN AND THE PRESIDENT SAYING HE FIRMLY DISAGREES AND WE HAVE TO HAVE FOOTBALL

HEART OF THIS IS OVERALL STRATEGY OF TRYING TO GET THE COUNTRY BACK TO NORMAL OR THE APPEARANCE OF THINGS BACK TO NORMAL HAVE SPORTS IS A BIG PART OF THAT DESPITE THE INCREASED RECORD BREAKING NUMBERS WE ARE SEEING IN SOME OF THE COUNTRY'S AGAINST STATES, THE WHITE HOUSE IS TRYING TO CARRY THE NARRATIVE THOSE ARE INFLATED INCIDENTS EVEN THOUGH TEXAS, CALIFORNIA, AND FLORIDA CONTINUE TO SEE TENS OF MILLIONS OF PEOPLE, THEY SAY THOSE ARE ISOLATED CASES, DID ADMINISTRATION HAVE IT UNDER CONTROL AND THE COUNTRY AS A WHOLE IS MOVING THE RIGHT DIRECTION WHEN YOU HAVE SPORTS, SCHOOLS OPEN, THAT FITS THE NARRATIVE WHETHER OR NOT THEY CAN CONVINCE PEOPLE THAT IS THE CASE REMAINS TO BE SEEN

THAT IS THE EMPHASIS ON THINGS LIKE FOOTBALL >> SHANNON, THE ADMINISTRATION IS NOW HAVING COVID-19 DATA SENT DIRECTLY TO NEW HHS SYSTEM INSTEAD OF GOING TO THE CDC ADDRESS CONCERNS ABOUT THAT CHANGE >> THE CDC DATABASE IS THE PUBLIC DATA OUT THERE, IT WILL CONTINUE TO BE PUBLIC IT SHOULD BE PUBLIC

THIS IS ALL ABOUT GETTING MORE DATA OUT THERE, NOT LESS DATA AND ENSURING IN PARTICULAR OUR DOCTORS GET THAT DAILY DATA >> WE ARE HEARING SOME OF THE PREVIOUS DAY THAT HAS DISAPPEARED FROM THE CDC WEBSITE DO WE KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON HERE? >> Reporter: I THINK IT REMAINS TO BE SEEN HOW PUBLIC THE DATA IS WITH THE NEW HHS SYSTEM AND WILLING TO BE FOR THE DOCTORS AND RESEARCHERS WHO HAVE BEEN RELYING ON THE ADMINISTRATION ADMINISTRATION SAID THEY WERE SWITCHING TO HHS, MORE EFFICIENT HOPING IT WILL BE EASIER TO GET DATA OUT TO RESEARCHERS THERE HAS BEEN A LOT OF CONCERN FROM DOCTORS AND RESEARCHERS THEY ARE NOT GOING TO HAVE THAT DATA TO ANALYZE TRENDS, TO DO THAT SORT OF DEMOGRAPHIC SPLICING TO FIGURE OUT WHO IS GETTING INFECTED AND WHERE AND TRY TO ANSWER WHY

THE BIGGER QUESTION OF HOW WE GET IT UNDER CONTROL THAT IS WHAT DOCTORS ARE LOOKING AT THE CDC DATA FOR IT IS STILL IN THE EARLY DAYS, 24 TO 48 HOURS OF THIS NEW SYSTEM, I THINK IT IS A CONCERN AND QUESTION STILL OUT THERE AS TO WHETHER OR NOT — THE NEW SYSTEM >> YOU MENTIONED DR FAUCI EARLIER

PRESIDENT TRUMP AND HIM, A SENIOR ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICIAL SAID DR FAUCI SPOKE TO THE PRESIDENT YESTERDAY FOR THE FIRST TIME IN WEEKS WHAT DO WE KNOW ABOUT THAT MEETING? >> TRYING TO SOLVE TENSIONS WE WERE TOLD BY CHIEF OF STAFF MARK MEADOWS AND EARLIER THIS WEEK, LOWER THE TEMPERATURE ON DR FAUCI TO TRY TO EASE TENSIONS AND DE-ESCALATE, THE IDEA THERE WAS A WAR GOING ON BETWEEN THE WHITE HOUSE AND DR

FAUCI THAT STRATEGY WAS DEALT A BLOW YESTERDAY WITH THE OP-ED WE TALKED ABOUT YESTERDAY, WITH DR FAUCI THE WHITE HOUSE DOES NOT WANT THERE ARE TWO APPEAR TO BE A GIANT RISK BETWEEN THE COUNTRY'S LEADING DISEASE EXPERT WHO IS MORE KNOWLEDGEABLE THAN THE PRESIDENT FOR PUBLIC TRUST AND THE WHITE HOUSE THERE'S EFFORT BY THE WHITE HOUSE TO DE- ESCALATE BANK

ANYMORE ADMINISTRATION OFFICIALS COMING OUT AND ATTACKING DR FAUCI >> SHANNON PETTYPIECE, ALWAYS GREAT TO SEE YOU THANKS FOR BEING WITH US >>> WE STILL CAN'T JOBLESS CLAIMS IN AMERICA BELOW 1 MILLION

IT HAS BEEN IN SEVEN FIGURES FOR SEVEN WEEKS NOW LAST WEEK, 13 MILLION AMERICANS FILED FOR AN IMPLEMENT FOR THE FIRST TIME SENIOR BUSINESS CORRESPONDENT, STEPHANIE RUHLE SHOWS US WHAT IS GOING ON IN THE JOB MARKET >> Reporter: IT IS THURSDAY, WE GOT THE WEEKLY JOBLESS REPORT

13 MILLION AMERICANS FILED FOR UNEMPLOYMENT LAST WEEK THAT MAKES IT THE 17th STRAIGHT WEEK OVER 1 MILLION AMERICANS FILED FOR UNEMPLOYMENT NOW, ESTIMATING 125 MILLION, SLIGHTLY ABOVE THAT

THE BIGGER ISSUE IS THE IDEA WE WERE GOING TO SNAP THAT IN THIS RECOVERY DURING THE STAY AT HOME ORDER, WE SAW BUSINESSES BIG AND SMALL SHUT THINGS DOWN WITH THE IDEA THEY WOULD LAY OFF WORKERS AND BRING THEM BACK WE'RE LEARNING IT IS TAKING A WHOLE LOT LONGER WE ARE LEARNING MORE, THESE STAY- AT-HOME ORDERS MIGHT BE RETURNING WERE LOOKING AT STATES LIKE FLORIDA, TEXAS, CALIFORNIA WHERE THERE ARE SPIKES IN CORONAVIRUS CASES AND IN CALIFORNIA ALONE, MAJOR SCHOOL DISTRICTS, GOING TO ONLINE LEARNING THIS FALL AND CLOSING BARS AND RESTAURANTS

THAT IS HAD A HUGE IMPACT ON EMPLOYMENT ONE OF THE WAYS THE PRESSURE IS MOUNTING IS EXPANDED UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS, EXTRA $600 A WEEK, PART OF THE CARE
