MORE THAN A THOUSAND PEOPLE WERE GIVEN A NEW VACCINE FROM THE UK'S OXFORD UNIVERSITY PARTNERING WITH ASTRAZENECA DATA SHOWS IT TRIGGERS TWO TYPES OF IMMUNE RESPONSE >> WE'RE GETTING BOTH SIDES OF THE IMMUNE SYSTEM STIMULATION THAT IS FAIRLY UNUSUAL FOR VACCINES >> Reporter: DOUBLE IMMUNITY WOULD MEAN THE VACCINE PROMPTS THE PRODUCTION OF NOT JUST ANTIBODIES THAT STICK TO THE VIRUS, BUT KILLER T-CELLS THAT TARGET INFECTED HUMAN CELLS

NOW RESEARCHERS HAVE BEGUN TRIALS WITH THOUSANDS MORE PEOPLE TO FIND OUT WHETHER IT PREVENTS CORONAVIRUS, WHETHER IT'S EFFECTIVE FOR OLDER PEOPLE, AND CRUCIALLY DOES THE VACCINE PROVIDE LONG LASTING RESULTS? WHAT WE DON'T KNOW IS HOW LONG ANTIBODIES LAST TO FIGHT CORONAVIRUS >> NATURAL INFECTION, IMMUNE RESPONSES ARE QUICKLY THAT DOESN'T ACTUALLY MEAN THE SAME FOR VACCINES VACCINE ISN'T A DIFFERENT APPROACH TO STIMULATING THE IMMUNE SYSTEM >> Reporter: THEY'RE HOPEFUL BUT THERE'S NO GUARANTEE OF SUCCESS

VIRUSES LIKE THE COMMON COLD STILL DON'T HAVE A VACCINE IF EVERYTHING GOES WELL, A VACCINE BY EARLY 2021? >> A VACCINE LATER THIS YEAR IS NOT IMPOSSIBLE A LOT OF THINGS WOULD HAVE TO GO RIGHT FOR THAT TO HAPPEN AND TO BE DEPLOYED IN 2020 WE'RE STILL TARGETING THAT >> Reporter: WHILE THIS MORNING NBC NEWS LEARNING CLINICAL TRIALS WILL SOON BEGIN IN AMERICA

>> OVER THE NEXT FEW WEEKS THERE WILL BE A LARGE US TRIAL STARTING IN AROUND ABOUT 30,000 PEOPLE >> Reporter: THE US

GOVERNMENT HAS PROMISED A BILLION DOLLARS FOR THE OXFORD VACCINE AND HAS SIGNED DEALS FOR MILLIONS OF DOSES THAT RAISES A CONTROVERSIAL QUESTION WHO AND WHICH COUNTRIES GET A VACCINE FIRST AND HODA, TO MAKE THAT MORE COMPLICATED, THERE'S SOME EVIDENCE FROM THIS EARLY TRIAL THAT TWO DOSES INCREASES THE EFFECT OF THIS TO SHARE IT AROUND THE WORLD >> SURE

ALL RIGHT KEIR SIMMONS, THANK YOU SO MUCH WHY DON'T WE BRING IN DR ASHISH JHA, THE DIRECTOR OF THE GLOBAL HEALTH INSTITUTE GOOD MORNING

BOY, WHEN YOU HEAR THAT STORY, YOU SAY TO YOURSELF YEA SHOULD WE GET OUT TWO POM-POMS? IS THIS REALLY GOOD NEWS WHAT WE'RE HEARING? >> GOOD MORNING AND THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME ON WE COULD ALL STAND SOME GOOD NEWS IT WAS GREAT TO SEE THE STUDY COME OUT YESTERDAY I THINK WE'VE BEEN SEEING EVIDENCE THAT IT MIGHT BE COMING OUT

AND THE NEWS IS GOOD AND THE NEWS IS GOOD THE REASON I'M NOT QUITE PULLING OUT THE POM-POMS YET IS THAT WE HAVEN'T YET SEEN THAT THE VACCINE ACTUALLY PREVENTS INFECTIONS IT JUST SHOWS IT GENERATES AN IMMUNE RESPONSE AND OBVIOUSLY WE DON'T HAVE ANY LONGER TERM SAFETY DATA

WE DON'T KNOW HOW SAFE IT WILL BE BUT I HAVE TO TELL YOU, I'M OPTIMISTIC THAT BOTH OF THEM WILL GO IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION AND WE WILL HAVE A VACCINE FROM THIS OR ONE OF THE OTHERS THAT'LL BE WIDELY AVAILABLE I THINK IN EARLY 2021 >> IF EVERYTHING GOES WELL AND IF THAT'S THE CASE AND WE DO HAVE A VACCINE IN EARLY 2021, HOW QUICKLY DO WE GO FROM HAVING A VACCINE TO CONTAINING THIS VIRUS? >> SO ONE OF THE THINGS THAT'S BEEN GREAT ABOUT THE FEDERAL RESPONSE HAS BEEN THIS OPERATION WARP SPEED WHICH HAS BEEN ABOUT RAMPING UP VACCINE PRODUCTION WELL BEFORE WE KNOW WHETHER THE VACCINE WORKS OR NOT WITH THE IDEA MAYBE A COUPLE OF THINGS WE HAVE TO THROW AWAY BECAUSE THEY DIDN'T WORK

BUT I THINK IT'S A BET WORTH MAKING AND IF THAT HAPPENS, THEN WE'LL HAVE A VACCINE AVAILABLE EARLY 2021 PEOPLE WILL START BEING ABLE TO GET IMMUNIZED AND GET THE VACCINE AND THAT REALLY WILL HELP, I THINK, BY NEXT SUMMER LIFE SHOULD LOOK DIFFERENT AGAIN, ASSUMING EVERYTHING GOES SMOOTHLY, WE SHOULD HAVE MADE SUBSTANTIAL PROGRESS IN BRINGS THIS OUTBREAK UNDER CONTROL BY SOME TIME NEXT YEAR

>> AND DR JHA, SOME ARE SAYING EVEN IF THERE'S A VACCINE I'M NOT SURE ABOUT IT THEY RUSHED THE PROCESS THEY DON'T KNOW IF IT'S SAFE THERE ARE PEOPLE THAT ARE GOING TO BE ON THE FENCE ABOUT GETTING IT EVEN IF IT DOES COME OUT

WHAT DO YOU SAY TO THEM? >> I COMPLETELY UNDERWHERE THEY'RE COMING FROM I DO WANT TO SEE THE SAFETY DATA FOR ME IT'S IMPORTANT MY QUESTION IS WHETHER I GET MY KIDS VACCINATED, MY ELDERLY PARENTS VACCINATED WE'RE GOING TO LOOK AT THE SAFETY DATA PRETTY HARD

AND I BELIEVE THE SAFETY DATA WILL COME THROUGH, BUT WE'VE GOT TO LOOK AT THE DATA AND SEE WHERE IT IS I DON'T THINK WE SHOULD BE VACCINATING PEOPLE UNTIL WE FEEL CONFIDENT THERE IS GOOD SAFETY DATA FOR OUT, THIS IS NOT JUST ABOUT PROTECTING THE PLAYERS BUT PROTECTING HIS FAMILY AS WELL THE NFL IS TRYING TO MOVE THE BALL CLOSER TO THE GOAL LINE TAKING TO THE FIELD DURING THIS DEADLY PANDEMIC THE LEAGUE AND ITS PLAYERS QUARTERBACKING A DEAL ENDING A WEEKS' LONG IMPASSE OVER SAFETY >> WE CAN REDUCE THE CHANCES OF COVID-19 SACKING THE 2020 SEASON

>> Reporter: A NEW PLAN REQUIRING DAILY COVID TESTS FOR THE FIRST WEEK THEN EVERY OTHER DAY ANYTHING ABOVE THE 5% POSITIVE RATE AND IT GOES BACK TO EVERY DAY FOR NFL FAMILIES, THE STAKES COULDN'T BE HIGHER >> OBVIOUSLY JUST THE NERVOUSNESS REALLY AND THE ANXIETY

IT WAS THE MOST STRESSFUL PART OF IT >> Reporter: RAMS' ANDREW WHITWORTH AND HIS WIFE MELISSA SPEAKING ON CAMERA FOR THE FIRST TIME AFTER GETTING COVID IN JUNE ALL OF THEIR KIDS AND HER PARENTS GOT IT TOO HER FATHER HOSPITALIZED FOR FIVE DAYS >> IT ALMOST KILLED MY DAD

SO I THINK WE LOOK AT OTHER FAMILIES IN THE NFL, PREGNANT WOMEN SPECIFICALLY, PEOPLE WHO MAYBE ARE LIVING WITH THEIR PARENTS >> Reporter: CONCERNS FOR THE WHOLE COMMUNITY PROMPTING NFL STARS TO SPEAK UP WITH THE #WE WANT TO PLAY SEAHAWKS QUARTERBACK RUSSELL WILSON TWEETING, I AM CONCERNED MY WIFE IS PREGNANT WE WANT TO PLAY FOOTBALL BUT WE ALSO WANT TO PROTECT OUR LOVED ONES

AND SAINTS QUARTERBACK DREW BREES ADDING, WE NEED FOOTBALL WE NEED SPORTS BUT NOT WITHOUT PROPER SAFETY PROTOCOLS THE NFL SAYS SEVEN HEALTH MARKERS HAVE BEEN MET FROM EDUCATION TO TRAVEL WITH TESTING THE LAST BLOCK TO FALL HOW IMPORTANT WAS DAILY TESTING FOR YOU? >> I THINK THAT'S REALLY WHAT KIND OF GIVES YOU SOME PEACE AND CALM TO HAVE LESS ANXIETY

WE'RE CHECKING EVERYBODY EVERY DAY ONCE WE'RE IN, WE'RE ALL COMMITTED >> Reporter: BUT EVEN IF IT'S EXECUTED PERFECTLY, IT'S A FORMIDABLE OPPONENT IN COVID-19 >> I'M NOT SHOCKED WE'RE IN A SITUATION WE'RE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT'S GOING TO BE THE RIGHT PLAN I THINK THAT'S THE RIGHT WORD

IT'S A PLAN IT DOESN'T GUARANTEE IT'S GOING TO WORK >> Reporter: AND IN NEW YORK, THE GIANTS AND THE JETS WILL BE PLAYING THEIR GAMES THIS FALL AT THE MEADOWLANDS WITHOUT FANS THAT COMES AFTER NEW JERSEY'S GOVERNOR ISSUED AN EXECUTIVE ORDER A FEW WEEKS AGO BANNING GATHERINGS OF 500 PEOPLE OR MORE >> THAT'S GOING TO BE A STRANGE SIGHT

MEANWHILE UP NORTH FROM YOU, THE NBA BUBBLE TALKING ABOUT POSITIVES IN THEIR TESTING >> Reporter: THERE'S A BUBBLE WHERE ALL OF THE PLAYERS ARE GETTING TESTED DAILY THE NBA TESTED 346 PLAYERS ZERO TES AND HE'S WORRIED THAT V TO HIS STATE MIGHT BRING BACK THE VIRUS FROM COAST TO COAST, NEARLY EVERY STATE IS SEEING A RISE IN CORONAVIRUS CASES

>> WE ARE IN A WAR AGAINST THIS VIRUS >> Reporter: THE SUNBELT NOW HIT ESPECIALLY HARD >> THE OUTBREAKS ACROSS THE SUNBELT ARE SERIOUS >> Reporter: CARS LINED UP AT THIS TESTING SITE BEFORE IT EVEN OPENED >> YOU CAN'T HAVE TOO MUCH TESTING

>> Reporter: CALIFORNIA WITH NEARLY 400,000 CASES IS ON PACE TO BECOME THE COUNTRY'S BIGGEST HOT SPOT FLORIDA HAS SEEN MORE THAN 10,000 NEW CASES A DAY FOR NEARLY A WEEK STRAIGHT >> WE SHOULD HAVE STAYED QUARANTINED LONGER >> Reporter: THE HOSPITAL ICUs FILL UP SOME RESIDENTS NOW LEAVING

BACK IN APRIL NEW YORK SAW 800 COVID DEATHS A DAY NOW THAT NUMBER HAS DROPPED TO EIGHT WHY HEAD DOWN TO GEORGIA TODAY? >> GEORGIA HAS A REAL PROBLEM A LOT OF THE STATES DO >> Reporter: WE SPOKE ONE-ON-ONE WITH NEW YORK GOVERNOR ANDREW CUOMO ON HIS TRIP TO SAVANNAH

>> IT'S ONLY A MATTER OF TIME IN MY BOOK UNTIL YOU SEE THE NEW YORK INFECTION RATE GO UP BECAUSE PEOPLE FROM THE OTHER STATES ARE COMING TO NEW YORK AND THEY ARE NOW BRINGING THE INFECTION RATE >> Reporter: MONTHS AGO, THOUSANDS OF VOLUNTEERS RUSHED TO NEW YORK TO HELP FIGHT THE VIRUS NOW THE STATE HAS SENT PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT TO GEORGIA, TEST KITS TO TEXAS, AND MEDICATION TO FLORIDA >> I NEVER THOUGHT IT WOULD BE THIS BAD INCREASING IN 40 STATES

NEW YORK STATE DID A QUARANTINE WE HAVE A QUARANTINE AGAINST 20 STATES >> Reporter: IS THAT QUARANTINE POSSIBLE TO ENFORCE? >> IT IS IMPERFECT >> Reporter: PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS DOUBLED DOWN ON HIS OPINIONS, HIS ASSERTION THE REASON WE'RE SEEING THE SKYROCKETING NUMBER OF CASES AROUND THE COUNTRY IS BECAUSE OF THE INCREASED TESTING TO THAT YOU SAY WHAT? >> THEN WHY ARE WE SEEING INCREASES IN HOSPITALIZATIONS? THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH TESTING

MORE PEOPLE ARE GOING INTO HOSPITALS OTHER COUNTRIES ARE NOW QUARANTINING AMERICA THAT'S NOT WHAT AMERICA IS SUPPOSED TO BE ABOUT >> Reporter: IN NEW YORK, THE PERCENTAGE OF COVID TESTS COMING BACK POSITIVE IS NOW DOWN TO TH CORONAVIRUS UNKNOWINGLY TO THEIR TEACHERS EVEN BEFORE ANYONE HAS FIGURED OUT HOW STUDENTS WILL FIT IN THE CLASSES WITH FEWER DESKS OR HOW SCHOOL BUSES WILL SOCIALLY DISTANCE KIDS AND STILL GET THEM TO SCHOOL ON TIME, FLORIDA TEACHERS SAY THE MANDATE TO REOPEN NEXT MONTH PUTS THEM IN DANGER

>> ONE CHILD GETS IT AND BRINGS IT TO THEIR TEACHER AND THEIR TEACHER HAS A COMPROMISED IMMUNE SYSTEM OR A FAMILY MEMBER THAT DOES AND THEY BRING THAT HOME, THEN IT JUST KEEPS SPREADING MORE AND MORE >> Reporter: THE LAWSUIT FILED BY THE TEACHERS UNION IN FLORIDA ON MONDAY CITES THE FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH'S OWN STATISTICS THAT THERE HAVE BEEN OVER 17,000 CORONAVIRUS CASES IN CHILDREN UNDER 18 YEARS OLD 213 HOSPITALIZATIONS AND 4 DEATHS BUT IN A RESPONSE TO THE LAWSUIT, FLORIDA'S EDUCATION COMMISSION SAYS THE ORDER WHICH ALLOWS CHILDREN TO CONTINUE REMOTE LEARNING SIMPLY CREATED INNOVATIVE NEW OPTIONS FOR FAMILIES TO HAVE THE CHOICE TO DECIDE WHAT WORKS BEST FOR THE HEALTH AND SAFETY OF THE STUDENT AND FAMILY

IN ORLANDO MONDAY, RON DeSANTIS IGNORED HECKLERS AS HE TALKED ABOUT REOPENING SCHOOLS >> PARENTS NEED TO BE FREE TO CHOOSE THE BEST ENVIRONMENT FOR THEIR STUDENT, FOR THEIR KID >> Reporter: TEACHERS SAY THEY DON'T WANT TO BE MISUNDERSTOOD THEY WANT TO GET BACK TO THE CLASSROOM, BUT THEY WANT TO DO IT SAFELY FELICIA ALVAREZ TEACHES SIXTH GRADE

SHE'S IN A KNOWN CDC RISK CATEGORY SHE'S PREGNANT WHAT'S ON YOUR MIND? >> WHAT'S ON MY MIND IS, YOU KNOW, KEEPING ME SAFE AND OBVIOUSLY MY UNBORN CHILD IS PRIORITY NUMBER ONE AND MAKING SURE THAT WE'RE SAFE >> Reporter: REOPENING SCHOOLS IS A COMPLEX ISSUE IN SOME CASES, PARENTS DEMANDING IT

WHILE OTHERS SAY EVERY OPTION MUST BE EXPLORED TO PROTECT TEACHERS AND KIDS ONE CURIOUS TWIST TO ALL OF THIS, FLORIDA'S GOVERNOR HAS BEEN MOSTLY HANDS OFF WHEN IT COMES TO COVID REGULATIONS LEAVING ALL OF THE DECISION MAKING UP TO LOCAL OFFICIALS BUT NOW WHEN IT OVERNMENTS WHAT WILLIE? >> KERRY SANDERS IN FLORIDA THANK YOU

WE'RE JOINING NOW BY FREDERICK INGRAM, PRESIDENT OF THE FLORIDA EDUCATION ASSOCIATION GOOD TO SEE YOU THANKS FOR BEING WITH US >> THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME >> YOU HAVE A LOT OF PARENTS WHO WANT TO SEE THEIR KIDS BACK IN SCHOOL

I KNOW YOU WANT TO HAVE KIDS BACK IN SCHOOL YOU WANT YOUR TEACHERS SAFELY BACK IN SCHOOL WHAT ARE YOUR CONCERNS AS YOU FILE THIS LAWSUIT NOW WITH SCHOOL JUST A FEW WEEKS AWAY FOR THE ADULTS IN THE BUILDING, FOR YOUR TEACHERS, CUSTODIANS, BUS DRIVERS, CAFETERIA WORKERS WHAT ARE YOU WORRIED ABOUT THIS MORNING? >> IN LARGE PART THIS IS A NONSENSICAL ARGUMENT THAT WE'RE HAVING WE HAVE 23,000 — OVER 23,000 CHILDREN WHO HAVE TESTED POSITIVE FOR CORONAVIRUS

THAT IS NOT AN INSIGNIFICANT NUMBER WITH A POSITIVITY RATE OF 134% ANY SENSIBLE PERSON WOULD TELL YOU THAT WE'VE GOT TO GET THE POSITIVITY RATE DOWN AND WE DON'T KNOW WHAT THE FALLOUT IS GOING TO BE WHEN YOU CRAM HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF CHILDREN IN OUR SCHOOLS

AND SO THAT'S GOING TO CREATE A PROBLEM FOR US WE DON'T WANT TO BE THE PETRI DISH FOR AMERICA WE NEED OUR GOVERNMENT OUR LEAD IN THESE ISSUES WE HAVE 160,000 TOTAL PEOPLE WHO HAVE TESTED POSITIVE IN THE STATE OF FLORIDA WE SEEM TO BE GOING BACKWARDS AS IT RELATES TO THE CDC REGULATIONS

IN FACT, WE'VE SEEN A SEVEN-DAY INCREASE AND SO WE NEED TO GET THIS UNDER CONTROL WE DON'T NEED TO HOIST THIS AS A PROBLEM FOR THE SCHOOLS THIS IS A PROBLEM FOR OUR COMMUNITY AT LARGE AND IT IS NONSENSICAL TO THINK WE'RE READY TO OPEN BRICK AND MORTAR AND DO IN-PERSON TEACHING IN TWO WEEKS >> YOU KNOW THE FLORIDA COMMISSIONER OF EDUCATION SAID THIS IS ABOUT CHOICE

PEOPLE DON'T HAVE TO SEND THEIR KIDS INTO OPEN SCHOOLS THEY CAN HAVE ONLINE LEARNING WHAT DO YOU SAY TO THIS? THEY CAN LEARN IN FRONT OF THEIR COMPUTERS IF THEY NEED TO >> THE COMMISSIONER AND THE GOVERNOR GAVE OUR COMMUNITY AT LARGE A CHOICE TO GO TO THE BEACHES, TO BE RECKLESS AT BARS, TO BE RECKLESS AT RESTAURANTS WE CANNOT SIMPLY GET THIS WRONG IN OUR PUBLIC SCHOOLS

THERE ARE 28 MILLION CHILDREN THAT ARE DEPENDING ON US TO GET THIS RIGHT WE DON'T WANT TO BE RECKLESS WE DON'T WANT TO BE IRRESPONSIBLE AND WE WANT TO TEACH I WANT TO INSIST UPON THE PUBLIC NORM THAT OUR WORKERS ALL WANT TO GET BACK IN THE CLASSROOM

THEY GET GIDDY THIS TIME OF YEAR PROVIDING LESSON PLANS AND GOING TO PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENTS AND GETTING THE IDEAS READY FOR SCHOOL BUT GIVEN THE CIRCUMSTANCES RIGHT NOW, LIFE OR DEATH, WE DON'T HAVE PERSONAL PROTECTION EQUIPMENT WE HAVE NO EDUCATION AS IT RELATES TO HOW TO SOCIAL DISTANCE IN FACT, OUR SCHOOLS WERE BUILT FOR SOCIAL INTERACTION, NOT SOCIAL DISTANCING WE HAVE TO REENGINEER THE COMPLETE THOUGHT OF WHAT WE THINK ABOUT OUR PUBLIC SCHOOLS

AND WE WILL GET THE JOB DONE WE SIMPLY CANNOT GET THE JOB DONE UNDER DURESS AND WE SHOULD NOT BE FEARING FOR OUR OWN LIVES GOING BACK INTO A SCHOOL BUILDING >> DO YOU BELIEVE THIS SHOULD BE NOT A STATE ISSUE BUT A DISTRICT BY DISTRICT ISSUE? EVEN IN THAT ORDER FROM THE EDUCATION COMMISSIONER, HE CONCEDES THAT LOCAL HEALTH DEPARTMENTS WILL HAVE TO MAKE THE CALL ON THIS COULD YOU SEE A SCENARIO WHERE CERTAIN SCHOOL DISTRICTS DO OPEN IF IT'S APPROVED BY LOCAL HEALTH DEPARTMENTS BUT NOT STATEWIDE? >> I DO

BUT IT'S GOING TO TAKE MONEY IT COSTS US MONEY TO ADHERE TO THE REGULATIONS OUR LOCALS CANNOT PRODUCE THE MONEY IT'S GOING TO TAKE TO REGULATE SOCIAL DISTANCING, TO BUY PPE, TO BUY MASKS, TO ENFORCE PLEXIGLASS SITUATIONS WHERE NEEDED AND TO DEAL WITH OUR MOST VULNERABLE STUDENTS AND OUR MOST VULNERABLE TEACHERS, IN FACT IT'S GOING TO TAKE MONEY

SO YOU CAN'T JUST GIVE US A SLOGAN THAT SAYS WE'RE GOING TO OPEN SCHOOLS WE MUST HAVE A COMPREHENSIVE PLAN THAT IS INFUSED WITH THE FUNDING, THAT IS INFUSED WITH THE SUPPORT AND THE EDUCATION AT LARGE BECAUSE IF WE'RE TRYING TO GET STUDENTS TO WEAR MASKS FIRST AND SECOND GRADERS, THAT'S GOING TO BE A COMMUNITY EFFORT THAT IS GOING TO BE AN EDUCATION THAT WE ALL NEED TO PUT OUR HEADS TOGETHER AND FIGURE OUT HOW WE MOVE FORWARD >> AS I MENTIONED SCHOOLS OPEN IN A FEW WEEKS IN THE STATE OF FLORIDA

CAN YOU SEE A SITUATION WHERE THEY ARE OPEN AND THE TEACHERS DO NOT SHOW UP? >> AGAIN, NOTHING IS OFF THE TABLE I DON'T KNOW I THINK THE TEACHERS ARE MAKING THOSE DECISIONS RIGHT NOW WE HAVE HAD SEVERAL EMAILS — SEVERAL HUNDREDS OF EMAILS SAYING I'M MAKING A DECISION ON WHETHER I'M GOING TO RETIRE OR NOT I'M MAKING A DECISION WHETHER I'M GOING TO CHANGE PROFESSIONS OR NOT

OR I'M SIMPLY GOING TO GO AT IT ALONE AND NOT GO AT IT AT ALL UNTIL WE'RE SAFE I WANT TO ADD THIS LAST YEAR THE SAME TIME, WE STARTED SCHOOL IN THE STATE OF FLORIDA WITH OVER 3,000 CLASSROOMS THAT DID NOT HAVE A CERTIFIED TEACHER THIS YEAR WE EXPECT THAT NUMBER TO BE MUCH, MUCH LARGER THAT'S UNFORTUNATE BECAUSE WE DON'T HAVE A PLAN AND WE UNDERFUND OUR PUBLIC SCHOOLS AND WE GO IT ALONE

UNFORTUNATELY OUR GOVERNOR IS OKAY WITH US BEING THE PETRI DISH FOR AMERICA >> WE HOPE THEY CAN OPEN DAILY BRIEFINGS AS YOU SAY IT COMES AS JOE BIDEN IS INTENSIFYING HIS ATTACK THIS MORNING FACING AN UPHILL BATTLE FOR RE-ELECTION PRESIDENT TRUMP WITH A COURSE CORRECTION

NOW OFFERING A DIRECT APPEAL TO AMERICANS TO WEAR A MASK TWEETING THIS PHOTO AND WRITING, MANY PEOPLE SAY THAT IT IS PATRIOTIC TO WEAR A FACE MASK WHEN YOU CAN'T SOCIALLY DISTANCE THERE IS NOBODY MORE PATRIOTIC THAN ME, YOUR FAVORITE PRESIDENT A WHITE HOUSE OFFICIAL SAYS THE PICTURE WAS TAKEN DURING HIS RECENT VISIT TO WALTER REED, THE ONLY TIME HE'S WORN A MASK IN PUBLIC IT COMES AS OVERNIGHT HIS RIVAL FORMER VICE PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN SHARPENED HIS ATTACKS AGAINST THE PRESIDENT FOR HIS HANDLING OF THE CRISIS

>> HE RAISED A WHITE FLAG HE HAS NO IDEA WHAT TO DO ZERO IT'S ONLY ONE THING HE HAS IN MIND HOW DOES HE WIN RE-ELECTION

AND IT DOESN'T MATTER HOW MANY PEOPLE GET COVID AND/OR DIE FROM COVID >> Reporter: BIDEN ALSO VOWING IF ELECTED HE WOULD EXPAND TESTING AND CONTACT TRACING WITH BIDEN'S LEAD IN THE POLLS GROWING, THE PRESIDENT'S AIDES HAVE BEEN PUSHING HIM TO PUBLICLY SHOW MORE LEADERSHIP AS PART OF THAT PIVOT, THE PRESIDENT ANNOUNCING HE PLANS TO RESUME REGULAR CORONAVIRUS BRIEFINGS STARTING TODAY >> WE'RE GOING TO GIVE YOU A LOT OF BRIEFINGS IN THE NEXT WEEK AND OVER THE NEXT FEW WEEKS AS TO — I THINK IT'S IMPORTANT TO DO IT

>> Reporter: THE BRIEFINGS WERE CANCELED IN APRIL AFTER THE PRESIDENT RAISED EYEBROWS ASKING WHETHER HEAT OR INJECTING DISINFECTANT COULD KILL THE CORONAVIRUS >> I SEE THE DISINFECTANT KNOCKS IT OUT IN A MINUTE, ONE MINUTE IS THERE A WAY WE CAN DO SOMETHING LIKE THAT BY INFECTION INSIDE OR ALMOST A CLEANING >> Reporter: AFTER THE FALLOUT, THE PRESIDENT SAID HE WAS BEING SARCASTIC THE BRIEFINGS' RETURN CATCHING ANTHONY FAUCI OFF GUARD IN AN INTERVIEW WITH MARIA SHRIVER

>> WILL YOU BE JOINING HIM IN THOSE BRIEFINGS? I WOULD ASSUME I AM I HAVE NOT GOTTEN OFFICIAL WORD OF WHEN THE NEXT ONE WAS I WAS DOWN AT THE WHITE HOUSE JUST THIS AFTERNOON IF THEY START THE BRIEFINGS, I WOULD IMAGINE I'M GOING TO BE PART OF IT AT LEAST SOME OF THEM

IT COSTS MONEY TO ADHERE TO THE CDC REGULATIONS AND THAT MONEY WILL COME FROM THE GOVERNMENT OR THE NATIONAL GOVERNMENT THE LOCAL CANNOT PRODUCE THE MONEY THAT IT WILL TAKE TO REGULATE SOCIAL DISTANCING AND TO BUY PPE AND MASKS AND ENFORCE PLEXIGLASS SITUATIONS WHEN NEEDED AND TO DO WITH THE MOST VULNERABLE STUDENTS ON THE MOST VULNERABLE TEACHERS SO IT WILL TAKE MONEY YOU CAN'T JUST GIVE US A SLOGAN THAT SAYS HOW WE ARE GOING TO OPEN SCHOOLS

SCHOOLS MUST BE OPEN WE MUST HAVE A COMPREHENSIVE PLAN THAT IS INFUSED WITH FUNDING AND INFUSED WITH SUPPORT AND EDUCATION AT LARGE WE TRY TO GET STUDENTS TO WEAR MASKS, FIRST AND SECOND GRADERS, THAT IS A COMMUNITY EFFORT AND THAT IS AN EDUCATION WE ALL NEED TO PUT OUR HEADS TOGETHER AND FIGURE OUT HOW WE MOVE FORWARD >> SCHOOLS OPEN IN A FEW WEEKS IN FLORIDA COULD CAN YOU SEE A SCENARIO WHERE SCHOOLS ARE OPENED UNDER THE ORDER FROM THE EDUCATION COMMISSIONER AND THE MEMBERS OF YOUR UNION, THE TEACHERS DO NOT SHOW UP?>> AGAIN, NOTHING IS OFF THE TABLE I DON'T KNOW THE TEACHERS ARE MAKING THOSE DECISIONS NOW WE HAVE HAD SEVERAL EMAILS, SEVERAL HUNDREDS OF EMAILS I SAID LISTEN I MAKING A DECISION ON WHETHER I WILL RETIRE OR NOT

ON WHETHER I WILL CHANGE PROFESSIONS ARE NOT OR SIMPLY GOING ALONG AND NOT GOING TO WORK AT ALL UNTIL I BELIEVE THE SCHOOLS ARE SAFE THESE DECISIONS ARE MADE EVERY DAY LAST YEAR AT THE SAME TIME, WE STARTED SCHOOL IN FLORIDA, WITH OVER 3000 CLASSROOMS THAT DID NOT HAVE A CERTIFIED TEACHER WE EXPECT THAT NUMBER TO BE MUCH LARGER THIS YEAR BECAUSE WE DO NOT HAVE A PLAN AND WE UNDERFUND THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS AND GO IT ALONE

UNFORTUNATELY, THE GOVERNOR IS OKAY WITH BEING A PETRI DISH>> WE HOPE THEY CAN GET OPEN SAFELY, NOT JUST FOR THE KIDS WERE FOR THE TEACHERS AS WELL WE APPRECIATE YOUR TIME >> THANK YOU>>> THIS MORNING, FACING AN UPHILL BATTLE FOR REELECTION, PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP WITH A COURSE CORRECTION

NOW OFFERING A DIRECT APPEAL TO AMERICANS TO WEAR A MASK, TWEETING THIS PHOTO AND SAYING MANY PEOPLE SAY THAT IT IS PATRIOTIC TO WEAR A FACE MASK WHEN YOU CAN'T SOCIALLY DISTANCE THERE IS NOBODY MORE PATRIOTIC THAN ME YOUR FAVORITE PRESIDENT WHITE HOUSE OFFICIAL SAYS THE PICTURE WAS TAKEN DURING THE RECENT VISIT TO WALTER REED, THE ONLY TIME HE'S WORN A MASK IN PUBLIC IT COMES AS OVERNIGHT, HIS RIVAL, JOE BIDEN, ON MSNBC SHARPENED HIS ATTACKS AGAINST THE PRESIDENT FOR HIS HANDLING OF THE CRISIS

>> HE RAISED THE WHITE FLAG AND HE HAS NO IDEA WHAT TO DO IT'S ON ONE THING HE HAS IN MIND HOW DOES HE WIN REELECTION TO MAKE IT DOESN'T MATTER HOW MANY PEOPLE GET COVID- 19 AND OR DIE >> Reporter: BIDEN ALLOWING THAT IF ELECTED HE WILL EXPAND TESTING AND CONTACT TRACING WITH BIDEN'S LEAD IN THE POLLS GROWN, THE PRESIDENT'S AIDES HAVE BEEN PUSHING HIM TO PUBLICLY SHOW MORE LEADERSHIP

AS A PART OF THE PIVOT, HE ANNOUNCED HE PLANS TO RESUME REGULAR CORONAVIRUS BRIEFINGS TODAY>> WE WILL GIVE YOU A LOT OF BRIEFINGS IN THE NEXT WEEK AND OVER THE NEXT FEW WEEKS >> Reporter: THE BRIEFINGS WERE ABRUPTLY CANCELED IN APRIL AFTER THE PRESIDENT RAISED EYEBROWS AFTER ASKING WHETHER HEAT OR EJECTING DISINFECTANTS COULD KILL THE CORONAVIRUS>> I SEE THE DISINFECTANT KNOCKS IT OUT IN A MINUTE ONE MINUTE

AND IS THERE WAY WE CAN DO SOMETHING LIKE THAT? BY INJECTION INSIDE OR ALMOST A CLEANING?>> Reporter: AFTER THE FALLOUT, THE PRESIDENT SAID HE WAS BEING SARCASTIC OR THE BRIEFINGS RETURNED, CATCHING DR ANTHONY FAUCI OFFGUARD IS THE INSTAGRAM LIVE INTERVIEW WITH MARIA SHRIVER WILL YOU BE JOINING THEM IN THE BRIEFINGS?>> I WOULD ASSUME I AM I HAVE NOT GET AN OFFICIAL WORD OF WHEN THE NEXT ONE WAS BUT I WAS DOWN AT THE WHITE HOUSE JUST THIS AFTERNOON

IF THEY START THE BRIEFINGS I WOULD IMAGINE I WILL BE PART OF IT>> Reporter: THIS MORNING, PRESSURE IS MOUNTING ON ALL SIDES TO GET A DEAL ON THE NEXT ROUND OF FEDERAL CORONAVIRUS AID THAT THERE IS SHARP IS AGREEMENTS BETWEEN PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP AND REPUBLICANS THE BIGGEST STICKING POINT IS THE PRESIDENT IS DEMANDING THE PAYROLL TAX CUT BE INCLUDED AND FUNDING FOR TESTING BE REDUCED OR CUT OUT COMPLETELY AND REPUBLICANS ARE AIMING TO GET ON THE SAME PAGE BEFORE THEY START NEGOTIATIONS WITH DEMOCRATS THE TREASURY SECRETARY AND WHITE HOUSE CHIEF OF STAFF WILL BE ON CAPITOL HILL FOR MORE NEGOTIATIONS TODAY AND SO THE PRESSURE IS ON>>> IT IS CALLED A DOUBLE DEFENSE

MORE THAN 1000 PEOPLE WERE GIVEN A NEW VACCINE FROM THE UK'S OXFORD UNIVERSITY, PARTNERING WITH ASTRAZENECA THEY SHOW IT TRIGGERS TWO TYPES OF IMMUNE RESPONSE>> WE ARE GETTING BOTH SIDES OF THE IMMUNE SYSTEM STIMULATED AND THAT IS UNUSUAL FOR VACCINES >> Reporter: DOUBLE IMMUNITY WOULD MEAN THE VACCINE PROMISE PRODUCTION OF NOT JUST ANTIBODIES THAT STICK TO THE VIRUS BUT KILLER T CELLS THAT TARGET INFECTED HUMAN CELLS

NOW, RESEARCHERS HAVE BEGUN TRIALS WITH THOUSANDS MORE PEOPLE, TO FIND OUT WHETHER IT PREVENTS CORONAVIRUS WHETHER IT IS EFFECTIVE FOR OLDER PEOPLE AND CRUCIALLY, DOES THE VACCINE PROVIDE LONG- LASTING RESULTS? WHAT WE DON'T KNOW IS HOW LONG ANTIBODIES LAST TO FIGHT CORONAVIRUS>> THE IMMUNE RESPONSE GOES VERY QUICKLY BUT THAT COULD DISABLE THE VACCINE IT IS A DIFFERENT APPROACH TO STIMULATING THE IMMUNE SYSTEM

>> Reporter: THEY ARE HOPEFUL BUT NO GUARANTEE OF SUCCESS VIRUSES LIKE THE COMMON COLD DON'T HAVE VACCINES IF EVERYTHING GOES WELL, A VACCINE BY EARLY 2021? >> LATER THIS YEAR IS NOT IMPOSSIBLE A LOT OF THINGS WILL HAVE TO GO RIGHT FOR THAT TO HAPPEN AND TO BE DEPLOYED IN 2020 IF WE ARE STILL TARGETING THIS

>> Reporter: THIS MORNING, EMBASSY NOONS FOUND THAT TRIALS WILL BEGIN IN AMERICA>> THERE IS A VERY LARGE US TRIAL IN ROUND ABOUT 30,000 PEOPLE>> Reporter: THE GOVERNMENT HAS PROMISED $1 BILLION FOR THE VACCINE AND THERE ARE MILLIONS OF DOSES

THAT RAISES A CONTROVERSIAL QUESTION WHO AND WHICH COUNTRY GET A VACCINE FIRST?>> HODA, TO MAKE IT MORE COMPLICATED, THERE IS EVIDENCE IN THE EARLY TRIAL THAT TWO DOSES INCREASES THE EFFECTS OF THIS VACCINE AND THAT WOULD MAKE IT MORE CHALLENGING TO SHARE IT AROUND THE WORLD>>> LET'S BRING IN DR ASHISH JHA, PROFESSOR OF PUBLIC HEALTH AND THE HARVARD GLOBAL HEALTH INSTITUTE GOOD MORNING

WE HEAR THE STORY AND YOU SAY YAY SHOULD WE GET OUT TWO POM- POMS, IS AS GOOD NEWS?>> GOOD MORNING AND THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME ON WE CAN ALL STAND SOME GOOD NEWS IT WAS GREAT TO SEE THE STUDY COME OUT WE'VE BEEN HAVING EVIDENCE THAT IT MIGHT BE COMING OUT AND THE NEWS IS GOOD

IT IS GOOD TO THE REASON I'M NOT QUITE PULLING OUT THE POM-POMS YET IS THAT WE HAVEN'T YET SEEN THE VACCINE ACTUALLY PREVENTED INFECTIONS WHICH WE CARE ABOUT IT SHOWS A GENERATES AN IMMUNE RESPONSE BUT AS I GOOD ENOUGH WE DON'T HAVE ANY LONGER-TERM SAFETY DATA SO WE DON'T KNOW HOW SAFE IT WILL BE TO HAVE TO TELL YOU, I'M OPTIMISTIC THAT BOTH OF THEM WILL GO IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION WE WILL HAVE A VACCINE FROM THIS ARE ONE OF THE OTHERS THAT WILL BE WIDELY AVAILABLE I THINK IN EARLY 2021

>> IF EVERYTHING GOES WELL WE HAVE A VACCINE IN EARLY 2021, HOW QUICKLY DO WE GO FROM HAVING A VACCINE, TO CONTAIN THE VIRUS?>> ONE OF THE THINGS THAT IS GREAT ABOUT THE FEDERAL RESPONSE HAS BEEN IS OPERATIONAL WARP SPEED WHICH HAS BEEN ABOUT RAMPING UP VACCINE PRODUCTION WELL BEFORE IF WE KNOW THE VACCINE WORKS OR NOT WITH AN IDEA THAT MAYBE THINGS WE WILL THROW AWAY BECAUSE IT DIDN'T WORK BUT IS A BET WORTH MAKING IF THIS HAPPENS WE WILL HAVE A VACCINE AVAILABLE EARLY 2021 AND PEOPLE CAN GET IMMUNIZED AND GET THE VACCINE THAT REALLY WILL HELP, I THINK COME UP BY NEXT SUMMER LIFE SHOULD LOOKS DIFFERENT

AGAIN, ASSUMING EVERYTHING GOES SMOOTHLY WE SHOULD HAVE MADE SUBSTANTIAL PROGRESS IN GIVING THE OUTBREAK IS UNDER CONTROL TOOK THE PRESIDENT SHOULD STOP PLAYING POLITICS, CALL SEGER POLICE AND LIKENED IT TO A DICTATORSHIP THE GOVERNOR ALSO CALLED ON THE PRESIDENT TO GET HIS OFFICERS OFF THE STREETS DEMOCRAT MAYOR OF PORTLAND, TODD WHEELER IS LOOKING STRONG HIS BASE WHILE YOU HAVE DEMOCRATS ON THE HILL NANCY PELOSI, CALLING OFFICERS STORM TROOPERS AND THEN THE GESTAPO THIS RHETORIC IS UNHELPFUL AND GIVES THE VIRUS A PASTOR THE PRESIDENT TRUMP WILL NOT GIVE THE VIOLENCE A PASS

HE WILL RESTORE ORDER WHERE THE DEMOCRAT GOVERNOR AND THE DEMOCRAT MAYOR ARE UNWILLING TO ADMIT THEY HAVE LOST CONTROL OF THEIR CITIES THE WELL ORGANIZED MOM IN PORTLAND HAS BECOME INCREASINGLY AGGRESSIVE, ESPECIALLY AGAINST LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS INDIVIDUALS HAVE THROWN BRICKS, CHUNKS OF CONCRETE, GLASS BOTTLES, FECES, BALLOONS FILLED WITH PAIN, PIGS FEET, BATTERIES AT AGENTS AND THE COURTHOUSE MULTIPLE ATTEMPTS TO BARRICADE OFFICERS IN HATFIELD COURTHOUSE HAVE OCCURRED, ATTEMPTS TO START THE STRUCTURE ON FIRE AS WELL USE OF EYESIGHT DAMAGING LASER DEVICES HAVE BEEN USED AGAINST FEDERAL AGENTS AS WELL

BUT, ACCORDING TO SPEAKER PELOSI, WHEN ASKED ABOUT THE VIOLENT REMOVAL OF STATUES, PEOPLE WILL DO WHAT THEY DO THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION URGES STATE AND LOCAL OFFICIALS TO WORK COOPERATIVELY TO RESTORE LAW AND ORDER OPERATION LEGEND IS A GREAT EXAMPLE OF THIS AT THE GOVERNOR'S REQUEST WE WENT INTO KANSAS CITY AND STARTED THE AREA WITH FEDERAL ASSETS, FBI, DEA, ATF AND US MARSHALS, NAMED AFTER FOUR- YEAR-OLD YOUNG BOY WHO LOST HIS LIFE AND WAS SHOT IN HIS BED TRAGICALLY THIS IS A SUCCESSFUL OPERATION THAT HAS BEEN WAGED IN HIS NAME

SIMILARLY, PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP IS TAKING ACTION IN PORTLAND, EVEN THOUGH YOU HAVE A DEMOCRAT MAYOR AND DEMOCRAT GOVERNOR, UNWILLING TO WORK WITH US IN THE SITUATION WE ARE SURGING RESOURCES ALONG WITH SECRETARY WOLF AT DHS AND AUGMENTING THE FEDERAL PROTECTIVE SERVICE TO SAFEGUARD FEDERAL PROPERTY FOR THE BOTTOM LINE IS THAT THIS PRESIDENT STANDS WITH LAW AND ORDER WHICH LEADS TO PEACE AND WE WILL NOT ALLOW PORTLAND TO BECOME THE NEW JOB LIKE SEATTLE I WILL TAKE QUESTIONS NOW>> TWO QUESTIONS ON PORTLAND, THE CASE OF NAVY VETERAN CHRISTOPHER DAVID WHO WAS FOUND BECAUSE HE WANTED TO TALK TO A LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER AND ASK ABOUT THE OATH OF OFFICE THEY TOOK PEOPLE SAW ON THE VIDEO, HE WAS BEATEN WITH A BATON AND HE HAD PEPPER SPRAY SPRAYED IN HIS FACE AND HE NOW HAS TWO BROKEN BONES IN HIS HAND IN THE PRESIDENT AWARE OF WHAT HAPPENED TO THIS NAVY VETERAN, GRADUATE OF THE NAVAL ACADEMY AND DOES HE CONDONE THAT TYPE OF ACTION BY LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS? >> I'M AWARE OF THE DETAILS BUT I HAVEN'T HEARD THE AUDIO OR THE VIDEO THOUGH I'VE SEEN IT AND I WOULD REFER YOU TO DHS ABOUT THE DETAILS BUT WE ALWAYS ENCOURAGE THE APPROPRIATE USE OF FORCE AND WE ALWAYS ENCOURAGE THOSE IN AREA TO REMAIN PEACEFUL TOWARDS LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS

>> WHERE IN THE CONSTITUTION, DOES THE PRESIDENT DERIVE THE AUTHORITY TO SEND FEDERAL LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS TO THE STREETS OF AMERICAN CITIES AGAINST THE WILL OF THE ELECTED OFFICIALS IN THOSE CITIES?>> WHAT YOU ARE REFERRING TO IS PORTLAND AND 40 US CODE 1315 DHS IS DEPUTIZED OFFICERS OR AGENCY LIKE ICE, CUSTOM PITCH ON SECRET SERVICES OFFICERS AND AGENTS, THEY CAN BE DEPUTIZED FOR THE DUTY IN CONNECTION WITH THE PROTECTION OF PROPERTY OWNER OCCUPIED BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AND PERSONS ON THE PROPERTY BUT WHEN A FEDERAL COURTHOUSES LITTLE BUYER, COMMERCIAL FIREWORKS SHOT AT IT OR THE OFFICES, I THINK THAT THAT BALLS PRETTY WELL WITHIN THE LIMITS OF 40 CODE>> DOES HE SEE LIMITATIONS TO THAT POWER? HOW MUCH OR HOW FAR DOES THE POWER EXTEND INTO THE STREETS OF THE CITY OF PORTLAND? WHAT LIMITATIONS ARE ON THAT? WHAT AUTHORITY DOES HE HAVE? >> WE BELIEVE THE AGENTS CAN CONDUCT INVESTIGATIONS AND CRIMES COMMITTED AGAINST FEDERAL PROPERTY FOR FEDERAL OFFICE IN LONDON THE CASE WE HAVE PEOPLE SHOOT ENOUGH COMMERCIAL GRADE FIREWORKS AND RUNNING ACROSS THE STREET, THAT DOES NOT EXTEND PAST OUR JURISDICTION>> THE PRESIDENT TWEETED THE PRESIDENT IMAGES AND WEARING A MASK IS AN ACT OF PATRIOTISM

AND NO ONE IS MORE PATRIOTIC THAN HIM HE WAS SPOTTED NOT WEARING AMASA WHY DOES IT TAKE THEM SO LONG TO BE SEEN WEARING A MASK IN PUBLIC AND WHY THE MIXED MESSAGING ON THIS CRITICAL HEALTH ISSUE THAT HEALTH ISSUES SOULS HAVE SAID IS CRITICAL? >> HE SAID MASKS, ACCORDING TO THE CC ARE RECOMMENDED BUT NOT REQUIRED BUT HE SAID HE WOULD WEAR ONE IN CASE HE COULDN'T SOCIALLY DISTANCE HE WORE ONE AND PUT A PICTURE ON TWITTER AS YOU SAW>> DOES HE THINK IT'S IMPORTANT TO LEAD BY EXAMPLE?>> GOING BACK TO MARCH 31, WHEN HE SAID IF PEOPLE WANT TO DO IT, THERE IS NO HARM TO IT>> BUT HE HASN'T WORN A MASK

SO SENDING THEM IS IT NOT MIXED SIGNALS? >> HE WORE A MASK AT WALTER REED OUT OF AN ABUNDANCE OF CAUTION AS I MADE CLEAR FROM THE PODIUM THE PRESIDENT IS THE MOST TESTED MAN IN AMERICA THAT HE IS TESSA MORE THAN ANYONE, MULTIPLE TIMES A DAY WE BELIEVE HE IS ACTING APPROPRIATELY>> LET ME ASK YOU ABOUT THE FEDERAL STIMULUS, IF I MIGHT, THE NEGOTIATIONS ARE ONGOING WHY IS OF OUR HEARTS LOCKED IN WITH REPUBLICANS REQUEST FOR MORE FUNDING FOR TESTING AND CONTACT TRACING, A SENATOR SAYS IT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE BUT I THINK THIS IS WRONG >> IS BLOCKING ANY MONEY FROM TESTING

ONE OF THE THINGS I WOULD ADD IS THIS IS AN ONGOING NEGOTIATION SO WE ARE ASKING THE EARLY DAYS OF THAT, CURRENTLY THE FEDERAL COFFERS WE HAVE $10 BILLION, WITH B, ALLOCATED FOR TESTING WE WANT TO ENSURE THAT IN PHASE WHERE THERE IS MONIES THAT IS TARGETED FOR TESTING IN THE WAY THAT MAKES MORE SENSE>> WE NEED THE MONEY IS A PRESIDENT WILLING TO –>> WE ARE WILLING TO GET MONEY FOR TARGETED TESTING THAT MAKES SENSE NOT JUST DUMPING MONEY INTO A POT THAT CONTAINS $10 BILLION>> AND CONGRESS THERE IS PAYROLL TAX CUT THAT THE PRESIDENT IS PUSHING FOR SO WISE AND SO IMPORTANT AND HOW DOES THAT HELP THE 25 MILLION AMERICANS OUT OF WORK WHEN THEY'RE NOT GETTING A PAYCHECK? >> THERE ARE A NUMBER OF THINGS WERE LOOKING AT FOR PHASE 4 IN ONE IS UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS WHEREAS THE SECRETARY SAID THEY WANT THIS TO BE COMPLETED BEFORE JULY 31 WE DON'T WANT SOMETHING TO BE AN INCENTIVE WHERE SOMEONE GETS OVERPAID AND HAS A DISINCENTIVE FOR GOING BACK TO WORK OR THEY GET PAID MORE ON AND UNEMPLOYMENT THE NETWORK SO WE WANT TO BE CAUTIOUS ABOUT THAT WHILE MAKING SURE THOSE UNEMPLOYED ARE TAKING CARE OF

BUT THE PAYROLL TAX GOES TO SOME OF THE HARDEST WORKING AMERICANS, THE PEOPLE THAT HAVE BENEFITS AND YOU LOOK AT THE TAX STRUCTURE ARE LOW INCOME AND MIDDLE INCOME WORKERS AND THERE IS AN INCENTIVE ON THE EMPLOYER SIZE WHICH ENCOURAGES THEM TO HIRE MORE, BECAUSE IT REDUCES THEIR BURDEN >> THOSE ARE PEOPLE THAT STILL HAVE JOBS SO WOULDN'T IT BE MORE IMPORTANT FOR PEOPLE WHO DO NOT HAVE JOBS IF YOU'RE WORRIED ABOUT THE COST OF THE STIMULUS?>> PART OF THIS IS THE PAYROLL TAX FOR LOW INCOME AND MIDDLE AMERICANS MAKING THEIR WAY THROUGH THE BEST THEY CAN FIT IT MEANS UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS AND IT MEANS DIRECT PAYMENTS TO AMERICANS THAT WE ARE LOOKING AT ALL OF THAT WE WOULD LIKE TO SEE ALL THAT>> OF THE BRIEFING TODAY AT 5, WE HAVE MEMBERS OF THE CORONAVIRUS TASK FORCE, WHERE THE DR

ANTHONY FAUCI BE THERE? >> YOU WANT TO TUNE IN TO SEE >> IN PORTLAND, AND FOR CHICAGO, WHY ARE THESE PEOPLE SEND, THE PATIENT'S WORK ON HUMAN SMUGGLING AND DRUG TRAFFICKING AND THINGS LIKE THAT, DO THEY HAVE THE RIGHT SKILL SET WEATHER IS GUN VIOLENCE IN CHICAGO, OR QUELLING UNREST IN PORTLAND? >> LET ME ADD THAT THEY HAVEN'T BEEN SENT TO CHICAGO THE DHS OFFICIALS ARE CURRENTLY IN PORTLAND, PROTECTING THE COURTHOUSE WE DO BELIEVE THERE IS A RIGHT INDIVIDUAL FOR THAT THE UNITED STATES CODE EGREGIOUS WHAT IS HAPPENING IN THE FREQUENCY JAMMERS AND THE AIR RIFLES IN PORTLAND DEPICTED AS A PEACEFUL SCENE IT IS ANYTHING BUT THAT WE'VE HAD BARRICADES TRYING TO KEEP OFFICERS IN HATFIELD COURTHOUSE, INJURY TO A BORDER PATROL TEAM MEMBER AND INJURIES TO THE HEAD, SHOULDER AND BACK OF A U

S MARSHALL, A US MARSHALL AND HELD HIS HAND ON A BOARD SET UP BY A PROTESTER I'M THANKFUL TO THE U

S MARSHALS AND ATF AND OTHERS WERE ACTING IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE STATUTE IN PROTECTING THE FEDERAL BUILDING AND DOING A GREAT COST TO THEMSELVES>> HAVE TWO QUESTIONS ON THE STIMULUS FIRST LISTEN TO BETTER COMMITTED TO THE PAYROLL TAX CUT THAT SEEMS TO BE DRIVING UP THE PRICE TAG OF THE WHOLE PACKAGE, IF THE WHITE HOUSE VIEWS $1 TRILLION FIGURE, BY GOP LEADERS IS A HARD CAP COME WILL YOU SIGN SOMETHING THAT WILL SPEND MORE THAN THAT?>> IS A PRELIMINARY DISCUSSION ASIAN SO I WILL LEAVE IT TO THE NEGOTIATORS TO DECIDE FOR THE $1 TRILLION WAS CITED BY THE SECRETARY YESTERDAY

THIS IS BEGINNING STAGES WE ARE LOOKING AT THINGS WITH THE PRESIDENT WAS VERY CLEAR THAT HE WOULD LIKE TO SEE A PAYROLL TAX IN THERE ALONG WITH LIABILITY PROTECTION, TAX CREDITS FOR BUSINESSES TO BRING PEOPLE BACK TO WORK AND OF COURSE, $70 BILLION FOR SCHOOLS REOPEN SAFELY AT LEAST 70 BILLION>> ANOTHER THING, WHAT IS THE WAIT TIMES THAT WE SEE FOR TEST AROUND THE COUNTRY SUGGEST THAT WE DO NEED A MASSIVE INFLUX OF TESTING BEYOND WHAT IS ON THE BOARD AND THAT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SHOULD TAKE MORE CONTROL OF THAT TESTING? >> WE WANT TO SEE MORE TESTING FUNNY BUT WE WANT TO BE TARGETED IN THE WAY THAT IT GETS TO THE RIGHT PEOPLE, WHO NEED TESTING AT THE RIGHT TIME NOT JUST DUMPING MONEY INTO A BUCKET WANT MORE MONEY AND WE WANTED TO BE TARGETED BUT I'M GLAD YOU BROUGHT UP THE TIMING OF THE TESTING I TALKED AND SHE IS ENCOURAGED BY THE TESTING THAT IS WORKED ON YOU CAN RUN 4 TO 5 TIMES AS MANY TEST IN THE SAME TIME BY DECREASING TURNAROUND TIMES AT A MINIMUM OF TWO THIRDS SO IF YOU TOOK THREE DAYS TO GET A TEST RESULT DOWN TO LESS THAN ONE AND IT TOOK SIX DAYS TO GO DOWN TO LESS THAN TWO AND MORE LABOR INTENSIVE SO THEY WOULD NEED TO HIRE ADDITIONAL PERSONNEL

IT WILL ENSURE TECHNICIANS AND PPE REQUIREMENTS CAN BE MET WE ARE HAVING ENCOURAGING SIGNS ON THAT FRONT>> GOING BACK TO THE PORTLAND SITUATION, WHAT IS THE POLICY SPECIFICATION FOR OFFICERS NOT IDENTIFYING THEIR AGENCY AND THEIR ARREST WITH AUTHORITY WHEN THEY TAKE A PROTESTER INTO CUSTODY? >> I AM TOLD THERE IS INSIGNIA THAT THEY ARE INDICATED LAW ENFORCEMENT IN THE CASE THEY DID IDENTIFY THEMSELVES TO THE INDIVIDUAL BEING DETAINED BUT THEY DON'T IDENTIFY THEMSELVES TO CROWDS BECAUSE IT WOULD PUT THEM AT GREAT RISK AND I THINK YOU CAN SEE THIS WHEN THEY ARE STICKING THEIR HANDS INTO BOARDS AND THE WRITERS>> IN JUNE 16, THE WHITE HOUSE PUBLISHED AN OP- ED IN THE WALL STREET JOURNAL, THE OP-ED SAID THAT THE MEDIA IS TRYING TO SCARE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ABOUT THE CORONAVIRUS

IT TALKS ABOUT LOW POSITIVITY RATES AND DECLINING CASE NUMBERS AND HALF OF THE STATES THERE WERE 25,000 DEATHS SINCE THAT HAS BEEN PUBLISHED IN THE WHITE HOUSE STILL STAND BY THAT OP- ED AND MORE GENERALLY, WHAT HAPPENS IN THE WHITE HOUSE ON THE MINISTERS IN THE LAST MONTH, WHEN THE MESSAGE WAS THAT THIS IS A PROBLEM THAT WAS ON THE MEND AND BEING ADDRESSED SO NOW, WITH THE EXPLODING CASES WE'VE SEEN, AND HUNDRED 41,000 DEATHS >> THE WHITE HAS BEEN VERY CLEAR EYED BUT AS WE REOPEN WE WOULD SEE EMBERS AND IN SOME CASES FIRE SPEED WE'VE BEEN AGGRESSIVE IN ADDRESSING THAT WITH 19 TEAMS TO GO TO EMERGING HOTSPOTS, DR DEBORAH BIRX HAS BEEN TO NINE STATES AND THERE IS A LOT OF EXTRAORDINARY WORK

SO EVEN CLEAR EYED BUT AS WE REOPEN WE WOULD SEE EMBERS AND SOMETIMES FIRES BUT WE ARE ENCOURAGED THAT WHEN YOU LOOK AT CASE FATALITIES WE ARE BILLY O THE EUROPEAN UNION AND THE AVERAGE OF THE ROAD AND THAT SPEAKS TO THE INCREDIBLE WORK WITH THERAPEUTICS AND THE INCREDIBLE WORK WITH TESTING 46 MILLION TEST WITH A NUMBER IS 1379 MILLION>> DO SEE THE MAIN PROBLEM AS THE OP-ED THAT POINTED OUT THE MEDIA TRYING TO SCARE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE OVER CORONAVIRUS? >> IN MANY CASES THE MEDIA HAS TRIED TO SCARE THE PEOPLE THERE HAS BEEN A DEFICIT IN REPORTING ABOUT THE COST OF STAYING SHUT DOWN FOR INSTANCE, WHEN YOU HAVE THE FACT THAT THE AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY SAYS DURING THE PANDEMIC WE SAW AN 80% DROP IN CANCER CASES BEING IDENTIFIED, THERE ARE REAL COSTS TO A DRACONIAN EXTENDED SHUTDOWN YOU NEVER HEARD THE OTHER SIDE OF THE HEALTH EQUATION PRETTY NEVER HEARD THE MAMMOGRAMS WERE DOWN BY 87% AND COLONOSCOPIES DOWN BY 90% AND DRUG OVERDOSES GOING UP MONTH AFTER MONTH THROUGH THE LOCKDOWN

IT WAS THE RIGHT DECISION TO MAKE AND THE PRESIDENT SAVED 3 MILLION TO 4 MILLION LIVES IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE THE OTHER SIDE LIKE EXTENDED LOCKDOWN DUE TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE>> HE SAYS HE WANTS TO SEND FORCES TO OTHER CITIES LIKE CHICAGO CITIES THAT WHERE THE FEDERAL PROPERTY ISN'T UNDER ATTACK WHAT ARE THEY GOING TO DO WHEN THEY GET TO CHICAGO AND THESE OTHER CITIES WITH HIGHER CRIME RATES AND HIGHER SHOOTING RATES, HIGHER MURDER RATES OF THE PRESIDENT IS WORRIED ABOUT THAT

WHAT ARE THEY GOING TO DO AND WHERE THEY GOING TO ARREST PEOPLE?>> YOU ARE GETTING AHEAD OF THE PRESIDENT HERE HE'S MADE NO ANNOUNCEMENTS AS TO WHO IS GOING WHERE HE IS VERY DISCOURAGED BY THE VIOLENCE HE HAS SEEN IN CHICAGO WHICH IS WHY HE HAS A VERY STRONG LETTER TO THE MAYOR IN CHICAGO OFFERING HELP BECAUSE SHE IS UNABLE TO CONTROL HER STREETS AND THE GOVERNOR AS WELL, UNABLE TO CONTROL THE AREA WHEN YOU SEE THE FACT THAT THERE WERE 49 OFFICERS WHO WERE INJURED IN THIS EGREGIOUS VIDEO OF THEM BEING RAMMED WITH UMBRELLAS, AND THROWING PROJECTILES

NOT ONLY THAT BUT THE CITIZENRY OF CHICAGO, 12 WERE MURDERED THIS WEEK AND AND 70 SHOT ALONE THAT'S INCREDIBLE WHAT WE SEE IN CHICAGO HE HAS OFFERED HELP AND WE ENCOURAGE THAT MAYOR TO TAKE AND BE FORTHRIGHT IN HER STATE IS LIKELY GOVERNOR OF MISSOURI WAS IN WORKING WITH US ON OPERATION PORTLAND>> THE LEADERS DON'T NECESSARILY WANT UNMARKED POLICE OFFICERS PATROLLING THEIR STREETS THE WAY WE'VE SEEN IN PORTLAND AND WITH THE PREMISE THAT THEY ARE PROTECTING FEDERAL PROPERTY THERE THE LEADERS OF THE CITIES DON'T WANT THIS PARAMILITARY POLICE FORCE

>> THERE OVER THE ASSISTANCE OF DOJ AS WAS DONE WE HAVE FBI SURGE IN THE CASE OF OPERATION LEGEND WHEN YOU HAVE MORE THAN A DOZEN PEOPLE GETTING SHOT IN YOUR CITY PERHAPS IT IS TIME, MORE THAN A DOZEN KILLED I SHOULD SAY PERHAPS IT IS TIME TO SAY I NEED THE HELP OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT BECAUSE WHAT I'M DOING IS NOT WORKING WHEN MORE PEOPLE ARE DYING ON THE STREETS OF CHICAGO THAN AFGHANISTAN AND IRAQ>> WHY THE QUESTION ABOUT THIS TOPIC PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP MENTIONED THE VIOLENT CRIME IN YOUR CONSENT IF THE GOVERNOR IS NOT GOING TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT, WE WILL DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT I'M CURIOUS IF YOU COULD EXPLAIN WHY HE SAYS THE GOVERNOR SAID THAT RATHER THAN THE MAYOR AND COULD YOU ELABORATE WHAT PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP WOULD BE WILLING TO DO?>> HE THINKS THE MAYOR AND THE GOVERNOR SHOULD WORK TOGETHER TO TAKE ON THE STREETS OF NEW YORK CITY BUT WE'VE SEEN 600% SURGE IN VIOLENCE OVER LAST YEAR

HE THINKS THEY SHOULD WORK TOGETHER, ULTIMATELY, THE POWER OF THE MAYOR TO ENFORCE AND THE GOVERNOR, TO ENFORCE THE POLICE POWER OF THEIR STATES THAT POWER RESTS WITH THEM BUT THEY CAN PARTNER WITH THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IN THE EVENT THEY ARE UNABLE TO CONTROL THE VIOLENCE IN THE CITIES ARE THAT'S CERTAINLY WHAT WE HAVE SEEN FROM THE MAYOR DiBLASIO WHO HAS NOT A HARD TIME CRITICIZING POLICE OFFICERS BUT AN AWFULLY HARD TIME CONTROLLING THE STREETS OF NEW YORK CITY>> I HAVE TWO QUESTIONS ONE FOR MYSELF AND ONE FOR OTHERS GOVERNOR GAVIN NEWSOM WAS ONE OF THE FEW TO BRING THE NATIONAL GUARD AND ARMED THEM IN EARLY JUNE COMPARED TO SEATTLE WHERE THEY DIDN'T BRING IN THE NATIONAL GUARD

THE GUARD WAS AT THE LOS ANGELES CITY HALL AND WITHIN DAYS THE VIOLENCE HAD SWELLED WHY NOT JUST INVOKE THE INSURRECTION ACT AND HAVE A BIG SHOW OF FORCE RATHER THAN MORE SECRETIVE OPERATIONS? >> I WILL LEAVE IT TO THE PRESIDENT WE DON'T HAVE SECRETIVE OPERATIONS, IT IS CLEAR WHAT'S GOING ON IN PORTLAND THAT VERY CLEAR WHAT IS HAPPENING IN KANSAS CITY BUT WITH REGARDS TO THE INSURRECTION ACT WE BELIEVE IT SHOULD BE GOVERNORS AND MAYORS DOING WHAT THEY HAVE THE CONSTITUTIONAL POWER TO DO, THE POLICE POWER RESTS WITH THEM SO IT IS UP TO THIS PRESIDENT WHETHER HE DECIDES TO INVOKE THAT

GOVERNORS AND MAYORS NEED TO STEP IT UP IN DEMOCRAT CITIES WHERE DEMOCRATS STREETS ARE OUT OF CONTROL>> WHAT ARE THE THOUGHTS ON JOHN K SICK SUPPORTING JOE BIDEN>> JOHN KASICK IS SUPPORTING JOE BIDEN AND HE WILL GO TO THE DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL CONVENTION >> THIS PRESIDENT IS QUITE PROUD OF HIS RECORD IN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY AND HAS THE SUPPORT, 96% OF THE PARTY, MORE THAN ANY PREDECESSOR IN THE HISTORY OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY>> YOU SAID THE PRESIDENT TESTED MULTIPLE TIMES A DAY HE IS USUALLY TESTED DAILY SO HOW MANY TIMES A DAY?>> I'M NOT GOING TO RE-OUT EXACTLY HOW MUCH BUT SOMETIMES IT'S MORE THAN ONE TIME A DAY

>> YESTERDAY THE PRESIDENT SAID WHEN HE WAS IN BRIEFINGS HE HAD A LOT OF PEOPLE, WATCHING TELEVISION I WAS WONDERING IF RATINGS ARE A FACTOR IN HIS DECISION TO RESTART THE BRIEFINGS AND IF HE IS THE BEST PERSON TO GIVE ACCURATE INFORMATION OUT TO THE PUBLIC WITH HIS PREVIOUS STATEMENTS METAL MEDICAL EXPOSE THE VIRUS WON'T JUST DISAPPEAR >> HE IS THE RIGHT PERSON TO GIVE INFORMATION TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE HE WAS ELECTED BY THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, HE'S BEEN A LEADER ON THIS, THE FACT THAT WE'VE OUT PRODUCED ON VENTILATORS, SO MUCH SO THAT WE HAVE AN EXTRAORDINARY NUMBER IN OUR STOCK PILE AND WE ARE GIVING THEM TO THE REST OF THE ROAD, THAT WE LEAD THE WORLD IN TESTING, 46 MILLION TESTS MORE THAN THAT AT THIS POINT, THE FACT THAT HE'S BROKEN DOWN BUREAUCRACY TO GET A VACCINE INTO PHASE 3 CRITICAL TRIALS BECAUSE OF HIM AND WE HAVE DIFFERENT DRUGS AND OTHER THERAPEUTICS COULD HE'S THE RIGHT PERSON TO GET THE INFORMATION TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND BOY DOES HE GET THE INFORMATION TO A LOT OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE DURING HIS DEFENSE AS NOTED BY THE RATINGS AS HE HIMSELF POINTED OUT

>> THE US TRADE REPRESENTATIVES HAVE TARIFFS VIEWED IN THE AEROSPACE SUBSIDIES WILL HE WILL OPPOSE DIFFERENT SANCTIONS?>> I WANT TO GET AHEAD OF ANY ADMINISTRATION ALL ANNOUNCEMENTS ON THAT FRONT>> I HAVE A COUPLE OF QUESTIONS, THE PRESIDENT TWEETED ABOUT CONCERNS ABOUT MAIL-IN VOTING

HE IS CONCERNED ABOUT THE INTEGRITY OF THE US ELECTIONS AND CERTAINLY INTERNAL SABOTAGE BUT WHY ARE WE NOT HEARING FROM THE PRESIDENT ABOUT FEARS ABOUT EXTERNAL SABOTAGE LIKE OUT OF THE OLD UK TODAY, A COMMITTEE REPORT SAID THAT RUSSIA INFLUENCED THEIR QUESTIONS ABOUT THE BRITISH EXIT BUT WE'VE NOT HEARD THE PRESIDENT TALK ABOUT THE KREMLIN ON THE ELECTION >> HE PUT THE WORLD ON NOTICE THAT THE ELECTION SYSTEM MUST BE SECURE WITH THIS IS UNDER THIS PRESIDENT IN 2018 HE ARTICULATED THE FIRST FULL CYBER STRATEGY FOR THE UNITED STATES SINCE 2003 AND IN 2019 HE EXTENDED THE A NATIONAL EMERGENCIES TERRY

>> BUT THIS FRESH REPORT WE WANT A FRESH REPORT >> HE SENT LEGISLATION, $71 MILLION AND SO ON AND SO FORTH THAT IS QUITE A CONTRAST TO THE OBAMA AND BIDEN ADMINISTRATION WHO IN TOTAL, DID NOTHING AND IN FACT SUSAN RICE TOLD THE TEAM TO STAND DOWN AND NOT GET OFF WHEN THEY FLOATED OPTIONS TO COMBAT RUSSIAN CYBER ATTACKS AND EVEN THE CYBER CHIEF HAD COME FROM THE STANDDOWN ORDER>> I'M ASKING WHAT HAS BEEN DONE NOW GIVEN THE IS QUITE PRESSING CONCERNS: WILL WE HEAR ABOUT WHAT HAS BEEN DONE NOW? >> I'VE LISTED THREE OR FOUR THINGS FOR YOU WE CAN TALK WHAT THE 71 MILLION AND LEGISLATION ON ELECTION SECURITY AND WE CAN TALK ABOUT THE 50 MILLION FOR ELECTION REFORM ACTIVITIES, LEGISLATION MAKING MORE THAN 105 MILLION AVAILABLE TO STATES

WHEN IT COMES TO MAIL-IN VOTING, I WOULD POINT YOU TO THE FACT THAT THERE IS A WALL STREET JOURNAL ARTICLE OUT TODAY AND IT TALKS ABOUT THE DARK OMEN FOR NOVEMBER AN ABSOLUTE CATASTROPHE IN NEW YORK CITY THAT WE ARE A MONTH INTO THE ELECTION AFTER THE VOTING WE STILL DON'T KNOW WHO THE WINNERS ARE GOOD SOME OF THE RACES AND THE GOVERNOR CUOMO DECIDED HE WOULD PREPAY POSTAGE FOR THE BALLOTS AND WHAT THAT MEANT WAS THAT THE POST OFFICE DIDN'T PUT A POSTAGE STAMP NOTING THE DATE, THE BALLOTS SO AS THEY ARE COLLECTING THE BALLOTS, YOU ASKED ME ABOUT THIS I WILL ANSWER SO FOR A MONTH, THEY'VE BEEN COLLECTING BALLOTS WITH NO POSTMARKS WHAT THEY FOUND IS 19% OF BALLOTS HAVE BEEN REJECTED IN QUEENS AND 20% REJECTED IN BROOKLYN THERE ARE QUESTIONS ABOUT MASS MAIL OUT BOATING'S

IT IS AN ARGUMENT AMERICANS HAVE BEEN HAVING SINCE THE BEGINNING OF THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC >>> MOST DOCTORS AND SCIENTISTS INSIST MASKS PREVENT THE SPREAD OF THE VIRUS BUT SOME REMAIN SKEPTICAL

SOMETHING SIMILAR HAPPENED 100 YEARS AGO >> THE HISTORY OF MASK WEARING REALLY BEGINS IN THE SECOND WAVE OF THE 1918 INFLUENZA PANDEMIC IT IS THE DEADLIEST WAVE THE FALL WAVE WHEN MASK ORDERS AND RECOMMENDATIONS TO WEAR MASKS STARTS TO TAKE OFF

>> WEARING MASKS BECAME A COMMON PRACTICE AMONG SURGEONS IN EUROPE AMONG THE LATE 1800S DOCTORS WORE THEM TO PROTECT THEMSELVES >>> THE 1918 PANDEMIC TOOK THAT OUT OF THE OPERATING ROOM FOR THE FIRST TIME IT WAS THE MOST DEADLY OUTBREAK IN HISTORY 50MILLION PEOPLE DIED WORLD RIDE WITH ARID 650,000 DEATHS IN THE U

S MASK WEARING IN PUBLIC WAS MANDATORY IN WESTERN CITIES, LIKE SAN FRANCISCO, SEATTLE AND DENVER >>> THE TYPICAL MASK WAS A SURGICAL MASK OF THE TIME, WHICH WAS MADE OUT OF FOUR, SOMETIMES SIX PLYS OF SURGICAL GAUZE THESE WERE MANUFACTURED BY A NUMBER OF COMPANIES THEY WERE ALSO MADE BY A BUNCH OF RED CROSS VOLUNTEERS ACROSS THE NATION

BUT IN MANY CASES, IT DIDN'T SAY WHAT TYPE OF MASK HAD TO BE WORN THERE WERE DEFINITELY SIGNIFICANT NUMBERS OF PEOPLE WHO PUSHED BACK AND REFUSED TO WEAR MASKS OR WHO WERE CAUGHT WITHOUT MASKS TEMPORARILY, PERHAPS LETTING IT DANGLE, REMOVING IT TO TAKE A BITE TO EAT OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT AND WE HAVE REPORTS FROM PRETTY MUCH EVERY CITY THAT ISSUED THESE ORDERS OF THIS SOME CASES HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE BEING ARRESTED SAN FRANCISCO WAS A PRIME EXAMPLE OF THAT THE CITY POLICE CHIEF HAD TO NOTIFY THE HEALTH OFFICER AND THE MAYOR THEY NEEDED TO STOP ENFORCING THE ORDINANCE, BECAUSE JAIL CELLS WERE FILLING UP FOR PEOPLE

>> FOR SOME RESIDENTS, SAN FRANCISCO'S REQUIREMENT TO WEAR A MASK WAS SO UNPOPULAR THAT IN 1919 A GROUP OF DISSIDENTS DECIDED TO ORGANIZE >> SO AT LEAST 2000 PEOPLE MEET IN JANUARY OF 1919 TO FORM THE ANTIMASK LEAGUE AND THEY HAVE THIS MASSIVE PROTEST, RALLY INSIDE AN AUDITORIUM, WHERE THEY LISTENED TO WHY MASKS ARE NOT EXPERTS, TO LEGAL EXPERTS THAT SAY IT IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL AND FROM PEOPLE THAT BELIEVE THE GOVERNMENT DOESN'T HAVE THE RIGHT TO TELL THEM WHAT TO DO ONE OF THE MEMBERS OF THE COUNTY BOARD OF SUPERVISORS IS PART OF THIS ANTIMASK LEAGUE SO THESE ARE PROMINENT PEOPLE IN THE COMMUNITY >>> AS NEW CASES CONDITION TO DECLINE AND OPPOSITION TO MANUFACTURING WEARING INCREASED, THE OFFICIALS ENDED MANDATORY MASK WEARING IN FEBRUARY OF 1919

>>> PEOPLE ARE SICK PEOPLE ARE DYING >> I'M AN AMERICAN AND I FEEL LIKE I CAN DO WHAT I WANT DO >> WHILE AMERICANS BICKERED, ASIAN COUNTRIES, INCLUDING JAPAN, WERE QUICK TO ADOPT MASK WEARING >> THE JAPANESE IN 1918-1920, WHEN THE PANDEMIC WAS RACING AROUND THE WORLD, WERE UNUSUALLY ENTHUSIASTIC ABOUT COSMOPOLITAN IDEAS

THE MASK CAME TO THE JAPANESE PUBLIC AT THAT TIME AS A SIGN OF MODERNITY IN THE 60s, IN PARTICULAR, THE JAPANESE GOVERNMENT IS SAYING NO, IT IS MORE IMPORTANT FOR YOU TO GET YOUR VACCINE BUT PEOPLE CLUNG TO MASK WEARING SO AT A CERTAIN POINT THE MASK SEEMS TO HAVE BROKEN FREE FROM PARTICULAR YOU KNOW, PUBLIC HEALTH INITIATIVES, AND BECOME SOMETHING ABOUT PERSONAL SPACE ABOUT STYLE, EVEN AND CALLED IT A MASK FOR TILE

>>> IN JAPAN TODAY, WEARING MASKS IS COMMON IN WINTER TO PROTECT AGAINST THE FLU JAPAN HAS HAD ONE OF THE LOWEST COVID-19 MORTALITY RATES OF DEVELOPED NATIONS >>> MANY BELIEVE BECAUSE IN JAPAN IT IS PERFECTLY NORMAL TO WEAR A MASK >> THE CUSTOM OF WEARING MASKS HAS SPREAD WITH VERY LITTLE ENCOURAGEMENT FROM THE GOVERNMENT

JUST TAKEN FOR GRANTED IT WAS A PROTECTIVE MEASURE >>> WE NEED TO GET PAST THAT RUGGED AMERICAN INDIVIDUALISM IN THIS PANDEMIC BECAUSE WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER IT IS ABOUT PROTECTING ALL OF SOCIETY >>> SO WHEN SCHOOLS OPEN, SOME ARE REQUIRING KIDS TO WEAR MASKS IF YOU ARE A PARENT IN THE MARKET FOR ONE, WHAT DO YOU NEED TO KNOW? >> THE KEY HERE IS FIT AND FABRIC

TWO LAYERS OF BREATHABLE COTTON IS A GOOD IDEA SOMETHING LIKE THIS WE LIKE TO USE THIS ONE ON THE GIRLS, BECAUSE IT STAYS ON REALLY WELL THAT IS THE OTHER THING YOU WANT TO MAKE SURE THESE MASKS FIT FOR YOUR CHILD AND THEY DON'T MOVE AROUND WHEN YOUR CHILD IS MOVING OR TALKING

YOU DON'T WANT THEM FUSSING WITH IT >>> TARGET, GAP, MACY'S, THEY ALL HAVE MASKS YOU WANT TO MAKE SURE YOUR KIDS CAN PUT THEM ON BY THEMSELVES >>> ESPECIALLY WITH YOUNGER KIDS, IT IS HARDER TO GET THEM TO WEAR A MASK >> THE KEY IS TO MODEL GOOD MASK BEHAVIOR

WHEN YOU ARE A PARENT, EXPLAIN TO THEM WHY WE ARE BEING ASKED TO WEAR THEM >>> MORE RESEARCH IS SHOWING MASKS PROTECT US TOO, FOR YOUNGER KIDS, MAKE IT FUN REMIND THEM THEY ARE SUPER HEROES THE PRESIDENT WORE A MASK THE OTHER DAY THAT SET AN EXAMPLE

NEW JERSEY IS TALKING ABOUT SIX HOURS A DAY IN THE CLASS WITH THE MASK ON YOU HAVE TO BUILD UP THAT ENDURANCE HAVE THEM WEAR THE MASK WHEN THEY ARE PLAYING VIDEO GAMES, MAYBE WATCHING A MOVIE AND GET USED TO WEARING IT FOR A COUPLE OF HOURS >>> THE CDC SAYS TWO YEARS AND OLDER WEAR MASKS WHAT ABOUT GOLDIE? >> DEFINITELY NOT

THE CDC SAY THE RISKS OUTWEIGH THE BENEFITS WHEN IT COMES TO BABIES ALSO ANYONE WHO HAS TRUE TROUBLE BREATHING SHOULD NOT WEAR A MASK FOR BABIES, DRAPE A THIN, COTTON BLANKET OVER THE STROLLER WHEN YOU ARE OUTSIDE KEEP YOUR DISTANCE THAT IS BREATHABLE AND PROVIDES SHADE AND A DEGREE OF PROTECTION

>> Reporter: THE STATE DEPLOYING ITS FIRST MOBILE HOSPITAL IN RESPONSE TO THE PANDEMIC SOME RESIDENTS NOW LEAVING BACK IN APRIL, NEW YORK STATE SAW MORE THAN 800 COVID-19 DEATHS A DAY NOW THAT NUMBER HAS DROPPED TO EIGHT >> GEORGIA HAS A REAL PROBLEM

A LOT OF THE STATES DO >> Reporter: WE SPOKE ONE-ON-ONE WITH NEW YORK GOVERNOR CUOMO ON HIS TRIP DOWN TO SAVANNAH >> IT IS ONLY A MATTER OF TIME, IN MY BOOK, UNTIL YOU SEE THE NEW YORK INFECTION RATE GO UP, BECAUSE PEOPLE FROM THE OTHER STATES ARE COMING TO NEW YORK, AND THEY ARE NOW BRINGING THE INFECTION RATE >> Reporter: MONTHS AGO, THOUSANDS OF VOLUNTEERS RUSHED TO NEW YORK TO HELP WITH THE VIRUS NOW THE STATE HAS SENT TEST KITS TO FLORIDA AND GEORGIA AND TEXAS

>> I NEVER THOUGHT IT WOULD BE THIS BAD NEW YORK STATE DID A QUARANTINE WE HAVE A QUARANTINE AGAINST 20 STATES >> Reporter: IS IT POSSIBLE TO ENFORCE? >> IT IS IMPERFECT >>> PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS DOUBLED DOWN THAT THE REASON IS BECAUSE OF THE INCREASED TESTING

TO THAT YOU SAY WHAT? >> THEN WHY ARE WE SEEING INCREASES IN HOSPITALIZATIONS? THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH TESTING MORE PEOPLE ARE GOING INTO HOSPITALS OTHER COUNTRIES ARE NOW QUARANTINING AMERICA THAT IS NOT WHAT AMERICA IS SUPPOSED TO BE ABOUT >>> IN NEW YORK THE PERCENTAGE OF COVID-19 TESTS COMING WELCOME BACK POSITIVE IS NOW DOWN TO AROUND 1%

HERE IN GEORGIA THE AVERAGE IS ABOUT 15% >> Reporter: EVEN BEFORE ANYONE HAS FIGURED OUT HOW STUDENTS WILL FIT INTO CLASSES WITH FEWER DESKS, OR HOW SCHOOL BUSES WILL SOCIAL DISTANCE KIDS AND STILL GET THEM TO SCHOOL ON TIME, FLORIDA TEACHERS SAY THE MANDATE TO REOPEN NEXT MONTH PUTS THEM IN DANGER >> ONE CHILD GETS IT AND BRINGS IT TO THEIR TEACHER AND THEIR TEACHER HAS YOU KNOW, A COMPROMISED IMMUNE SYSTEM OR A FAMILY MEMBER THAT CAUSE AND THEY BRING THAT HOME, THEN IT JUST'S KEEPS SPREADING MORE AND MORE

>> Reporter: THE LAWSUIT FILED BY THE TEACHER'S UNION MONDAY CITES STATISTICS THAT THERE HAVE BEEN OVER 17,000 CORONAVIRUS CASES IN CHILDREN UNDER 18 213 HOSPITALIZATIONS, AND FOUR DEATHS BUT IN RESPONSE TO THE LAWSUIT, FLORIDA'S EDUCATION COMMISSIONER SAYS THE ORDER, WHICH ALLOWS CHILDREN TO CONTINUE REMOTE LEARNING, SIMPLY CREATED INNOVATIVE NEW OPTIONS FOR FAMILIES TO HAVE THE CHOICE TO DECIDE WHAT WORKS BEST FOR THE HEALTH AND SAFETY OF THE STUDENT AND FAMILY IN ORLANDO, MONDAY, FLORIDA'S REPUBLICAN GOVERNOR RON DESANTIS IGNORED HECKLERS, AS HE TALKED ABOUT REOPENING SCHOOLS >> PARENTS NEED TO BE FREE TO CHOOSE THE BEST ENVIRONMENT FOR THEIR STUDENT, FOR THEIR KIDS

>> Reporter: TEACHERS SAY THEY DON'T WANT TO BE MISUNDERSTOOD THEY WANT TO GET BACK TO THE CLASSROOM BUT THEY WANT TO DO IT SAFELY FELECIA ALVAREZ TEACHES SIXTH GRADE, SHE IS A KNOWN CDC RISK CATEGORY SHE IS PREGNANT

>> Reporter: WHAT IS ON YOUR MIND >>> >> WHAT IS ON MY MIND IS KEEPING SAFE AND MAKING SURE THAT YOU KNOW, THAT WE ARE SAFE >> Reporter: REOPENING SCHOOLS IS A COMPLEX ISSUE IN SOME CASES, PARENTS DEMANDING IT, WHILE OTHERS SAY EVERY OPTION MUST BE EXPLORED TO PROTECT TEACHERS AND KIDS ONE CURIOUS TWIST TO ALL OF THIS

FLORIDA'S GOVERNOR HAS BEEN MOSTLY HANDS OFF WHEN IT COMES TO COVID-19 REGULATIONS, LEAVING ALL THE DECISION MAKING UP TO LOCAL OFFICIALS BUT NOW, WHEN IT COMES TO OPENING SCHOOLS, HE IS TELLING LOCAL GOVERNMENTS WHAT TO DO >>> WE ARE JOINED BY FREDERICK INGRAM, PRESIDENT OF THE FLORIDA EDUCATION ASSOCIATION I KNOW YOU WANT TEACHERS AND CHILDREN BACK IN SCHOOL WHAT ARE YOUR CONCERNS AS YOU FILE THIS LAWSUIT WITH SCHOOL A FEW WEEKS AWAY FOR YOUR TEACHERS, CUSTODIANS, BUS DRIVERS, CAFETERIA WORKERS? >> IN LARGE PART, THIS IS A NONSENSICAL ARGUMENT THAT WE ARE HAVING

WE HAVE OVER 23,000 CHILDREN THAT HAVE BEEN TESTED, AND TESTED POSITIVE FOR CORONAVIRUS THAT IS NOT AN INSIGNIFICANT NUMBER WITH A RATE OF 134% ANY SENSIBLE PERSON WILL TELL YOU WE'VE GOT TO GET THE POSITIVITY RATE DOWN AND WE DON'T KNOW WHAT THE FALLOUT IS GOING TO BE WHEN YOU START TO CRAM HUNDREDS AND THOUSANDS OF CHILDREN IN OUR SCHOOLS SO THAT IS GOING TO CREATE A PROBLEM FOR US

WE DON'T WANT TO BE THE PETRI DISH FOR AMERICA WE NEED A SURVIVAL KIT WE NEED OUR STATE GOVERNMENT TO STEP UP AND LEAD IN THESE ISSUES WE HAVE OVER 360,000 TOTAL PEOPLE WHO HAVE TESTED POSITIVE IN FLORIDA 5000 DEATHS STATEWIDE

WE SEEM TO BE GOING BACKWARDS WE HAVE SEEN THE 14-DAY INCREASE WE NEED TO GET THIS UNDER CONTROL WE DON'T NEED THIS AS A PROBLEM IF THE SCHOOLS, THIS IS A PROBLEM FOR THE COMMUNITY AT LARGE AND IT IS NONSENSICAL TO THINK WE ARE READY TO OPEN BRICK AND MORTAR AND TEACH IN TWO WEEKS >> Reporter: THE FLORIDA COMMISSIONER OF EDUCATION HAS SAID WE WANT TO GIVE PARENTS THE CHOICE

THEY DON'T HAVE TO SEND THEIR KIDS INTO THESE OPEN SCHOOLS, THEY CAN HAVE ONLINE LEARNING WHAT DO YOU SAY TO THAT? >> THE COMMISSIONER AND THE GOVERNOR GAVE OUR COMMUNITY AT LARGE A CHOICE TO GO TO THE BEACHES, TO BE RECKLESS AT BARS, TO BE RECKLESS AT RESTAURANTS WE CANNOT GET THIS WRONG IN OUR PUBLIC SCHOOLS THERE ARE 2

8 MILLION CHILDREN DEPENDING ON US TO GET THIS RIGHT THIS IS A LIFE OR DEATH SITUATION WE DON'T WANT TO BE RECKLESS, WE DON'T WANT TO BE IRRESPONSIBLE AND WE WANT TO TEACH I WANT TO INSIST ON THE PUBLIC KNOWING OUR TEACHERS, BUS DRIVERS, CAFETERIA WORKERS, SECRETARIES, THEY WANT TO GET BACK IN THE CLASSROOM THEY GET GIDDY, PROVIDING LESSON PLANS AND GETTING THE IDEAS READY FOR SCHOOL

BUT GIVEN THE CIRCUMSTANCES, RIGHT NOW, LIFE OR DEATH, WE DON'T HAVE PERSONAL PROTECTION EQUIPMENT WE HAVE NO EDUCATION AS IT RELATES TO HOW TO SOCIAL DISTANCE IN FACT OUR SCHOOLS WERE BUILT FOR SOCIAL INTERACTION, SO WE HAVE TO REENGINEER THE COMPLETE THOUGHT OF WHAT WE THINK ABOUT OUR PUBLIC SCHOOLS AND WE WILL GET THE JOB DONE WE SIMPLY CANNOT GET THE JOB DONE UNDER DURESS, AND WE SHOULD NOT BE FEARING FOR OUR OWN LIVES, GOING BACK INTO A SCHOOL BUILDING

>>> DO YOU BELIEVE THIS SHOULD NOT BE A STATE ISSUE? BUT A DISTRICT BY DISTRICT ISSUE? EVEN FROM THE ORDER OF THE EDUCATION COMMISSIONER HE CONCEDES LOCAL HEALTH DEPARTMENTS ULTIMATELY WILL HAVE TO MAKE THE CALL ON THIS COULD YOU SEE IT APPROVED BY LOCAL HEALTH DEPARTMENTS BUT NOT STATEWIDE? >> I DO BUT I ALSO BELIEVE IT IS GOING TO TAKE FUNDING IT COSTS UNITED STATES MONEY TO ADHERE TO THE CDC REGULATIONS THAT IS GOING TO COME FROM OUR STATE GOVERNMENT OR NATIONAL GOVERNMENT

OUR LOCALS CANNOT PRODUCE THE MONEY IT IS GOING TO TAKE TO REGULATE TO BUY PPE, TO BUY MASKS, TO ENFORCE PLEXIGLASS SITUATIONS WHERE NEEDED AND TO DEAL WITH OUR MOST VULNERABLE STUDENTS AND OUR MOST VULNERABLE TEACHERS AND IT IS GOING TO TAKE MONEY YOU CAN'T JUST GIVE US A SLOGAN THAT SAYS WE ARE GOING TO OPEN SCHOOLS WE MUST HAVE A COMPREHENSIVE PLAN THAT IS INFUSED WITH THE FUNDING THAT IS INFUSED WITH THE SUPPORT AND EDUCATION AT LARGE BECAUSE IF WE ARE TRYING TO GET STUDENTS TO WEAR MASKS, FIRST AND SECOND GRADERS, THAT IS GOING TO BE A COMMUNITY EFFORT THAT IS GOING TO BE AN EDUCATION WE ALL NEED TO PUT OUR HEADS TOGETHER AND FIGURE OUT HOW WE WILL DO IT

>>> SCHOOLS OPEN IN JUST A FEW WEEKS IN THE STATE OF FLORIDA CAN YOU SEE A SCENARIO WHERE SCHOOLS ARE OPENED UNDER THIS ORDER AND THE MEMBERS OF YOUR UNION, THE TEACHERS, DO NOT SHOW UP? >> AGAIN NOTHING IS OFF THE TABLE I DON'T KNOW I THINK THE TEACHERS ARE MAKING THOSE DECISIONS RIGHT NOW WE HAVE HAD SEVERAL E-MAILS, SEVERAL HUNDREDS OF E-MAILS THAT SAID HEY, LISTEN, I'M MAKING THE DECISION ON WHETHER I'M GOING TO RETIRE OR NOT

OR I'M SIMPLY GOING TO GO ALONG AND NOT GOING TO WORK AT ALL UNTIL I BELIEVE OUR SCHOOLS ARE SAFE SO THOSE DECISIONS ARE BEING MADE EVERY DAY LAST YEAR, THIS SAME TIME, WE STARTED SCHOOL IN THE STATOF FLORIDA WITH OVER 3000 CLASSROOMS THAT DID NOT HAVE A CERTIFIED TEACHER THIS YEAR WE EXPECT THAT NUMBER TO BE MUCH, MUCH LARGER

THAT IS UNFORTUNATE, BECAUSE WE SIMPLY DON'T HAVE A PLAN AND WE UNDERFUND OUR PUBLIC SCHOOLS AND WE GO IT ALONE UNFORTUNATELY, OUR GOVERNOR IS OKAY WITH US BEING THE PETRI DISH FOR AMERICA >> WE HOPE THEY OPEN SAFELY FREDERICK INGRAM, THANKS SO MUCH FOR YOUR TIME THIS MORNING WE APPRECIATE IT

>>> THANK YOU >>> THIS MORNING, FACING AN UPHILL BATTLE FOR REELECTION, PRESIDENT TRUMP WITH A COURSE CORRECTION NOW OFFERING A DIRECT APPEAL TO AMERICANS TO WEAR A MASK TWEETING THIS PHOTO, AND WRITING MANY PEOPLE SAY IT IS PATRIOTIC TO WEAR A FACE MASK WHEN YOU CAN'T SOCIAL DISTANCE THERE IS NOBODY MORE PATRIOTIC THAN ME, YOUR FAVORITE PRESIDENT

THE PICTURE WAS TAKEN DURING HIS RECENT VISIT TO WALTER REED THE ONLY TIME HE HAS WORN A MASK IN PUBLIC IT COMES AS OVERNIGHT FORMER JOE BIDEN, ON MSNBC SHARPENED HIS ATTACKS AGAINST THE PRESIDENT FOR HIS HANDLING OF THE CRISIS >>> HE RAISED THE WHITE FLAG HE HAS NO IDEA WHAT TO DO

HOW DOES HE WIN REELECTION? IT DOESN'T MATTER HOW MANY PEOPLE GET COVID- 19 AND/OR DIE FROM COVID-19 >>> BIDEN VOWING VOI NG HE WILL EXPAND TESTING AND CONTRACT TRACING WITH BIDEN'S LEAD IN THE POLLS GROWING, THE PRESIDENT'S AIDES HAVE BEEN PUSHING HIM TO PUBLICLY SHOW MORE LEADERSHIP AS PART OF THAT PIVOT HE PLANS TO RESUME REGULAR CORONAVIRUS BRIEFINGS STARTING TODAY >>> WE ARE GOING TO GIVE YOU A LOT OF BRIEFINGS OVER THE NEXT WEEK AND TWO WEEKS

>> Reporter: THE BRIEFINGS WERE ABRUPTLY CANCELED IN APRIL AFTER THE PRESIDENT RAISED EYEBROWS, ASKING WHETHER HEAT OR INJECTING DISINFECTANTS COULD KILL THE CORONAVIRUS >> IT KNOCKS IT OUT IN A MINUTE, ONE MINUTE IS THERE A WAY WE CAN DO SOMETHING LIKE THAT? BY INJECTION, INSIDE OR ALMOST A CLEANING >> Reporter: AFTER THE FALLOUT, THE PRESIDENT SAID HE WAS BEING SARCASTIC THE BRIEFINGS RETURN APPARENTLY CATCHING DR

ANTHONY FAUCI OFF GUARD IN AN INTERVIEW WITH MARIA SHRIVER >> Reporter: WILL YOU BE JOINING HIM IN THE BRIEFINGS? >> I ASSUME I AM I WAS DOWN AT THE WHITE HOUSE JUST THIS AFTERNOON IF THEY START THE BRIEFINGS, I IMAGINE I WOULD BE PART OF IT AT LEAST SOME OF THEM

>> Reporter: PRESSURE IS MOUNTING ON ALL SIDES TO GET A DEAL ON THE NEXT ROUND OF FEDERAL CORONAVIRUS AID BUT THERE ARE STILL SHARP DISAGREEMENTS BETWEEN PRESIDENT TRUMP AND REPUBLICANS PERHAPS THE BIGGEST STICKING POINT, THE PRESIDENT IS DEMANDING A PAYROLL TAX CUT, REPUBLICANS ARE AIMING TO GET ON THE SAME PAGE BEFORE THEY START NEGOTIATIONS WITH DEMOCRATS THE WHITE HOUSE CHIEF OF STAFF AND TREASURY SECRETARY WILL BE ON CAPITOL HILL FOR MORE NEGOTIATIONS TODAY SO THE PRESSURE IS ON

>>> IT IS OFTEN CALLED A DOUBLE DEFENSE MORE 1000 PEOPLE WERE GIVEN A NEW VACCINE FROM THE UK'S OXFORD UNIVERSITY, PARTNERING WITH ASTRA ZENECA DATA SHOWS IT TRIGGERS TWO TYPES OF IMMUNE RESPONSE >> WE ARE GETTING BOTH SIDES OF THE IMMUNE SYSTEM THAT IS FAIRLY UNUSUAL

>> Reporter: DOUBLE IMMUNITY MEANS THE VACCINE PROMPTS THE PRODUCTION OF NOT JUST ANTIBODIES THAT STICK TO THE VIRUS, BUT KILLER T CELLS THAT TARGET INFECTED HUMAN CELLS NOW RESEARCHERS HAVE BEGUN TRIALS WITH THOUSANDS MORE PEOPLE TO FIND OUT WHETHER IT PREVENTS CORONAVIRUS WHETHER IT IS EFFECTIVE FOR OLDER PEOPLE AND CRUCIALLY, DOES THE VACCINE PROVIDE LONG LASTING RESULTS >> WHAT WE DON'T KNOW IS HOW LONG ANTIBODIES LAST TO FIGHT CORONAVIRUS >> THE VACCINE IS A DIFFERENT APPROACH TO STIMULATING IMMUNE SYSTEMS

>>> THEY ARE HOPEFUL, BUT THERE IS NO GUARANTEE OF SUCCESS VIRUSES LIKE THE COMMON COLD STILL DON'T HAVE VACCINES IF EVERYTHING GOES WELL, A VACCINE BY EARLY 2021? >> A VACCINE LATER THIS YEAR IS NOT IMPOSSIBLE A LOT OF THINGS WOULD HAVE TO GO RIGHT FOR THAT TO HAPPEN AND TO BE DEPLOYED IN 2020 WE ARE STILL TARGETING THAT

>>> WHILE THIS MORNING, NBC NEWS LEARNING CLINICAL TRIALS WILL STILL BEGIN IN AMERICA >> Reporter: THE NEXT FEW WEEKS THERE WILL BE A VERY LARGE US TRIAL STARTING IN ROUNDABOUT 30,000 PEOPLE >>> THE U

S GOVERNMENT PROMISED A BILLION DOLLARS FOR THE VACCINE AND HAS SIGNED DEALS FOR MILLIONS OF DOSES THAT RAISES A CONTROVERSIAL QUESTION WHO AND WHICH COUNTRIES GET A VACCINE FIRST >>> IN ORDER TO MAKE THAT MORE COMPLICATED, THERE IS SOME EVIDENCE FROM THIS EARLY TRIAL, THAT TWO DOSES INCREASES THE EFFECT OF THIS VACCINE

THAT, OF COURSE, WOULD MAKE IT EVEN MORE CHALLENGING TO SHARE IT AROUND THE WORLD >>> WHY DON'T WE BRING IN DR SHAW, A PROFESSOR AT HARVARD PUBLIC SCHOOL OF HEALTH GOOD MORNING BOY, WHEN YOU HEAR THAT STORY YOU SAY TO YOURSELF, SHOULD WE GET OUT TWO POM POMS? IS THIS REALLY GOOD NEWS WE ARE HEARING? >> IT WAS GREAT TO SEE THE STUDY COME OUT YESTERDAY

I THINK WE HAD BEEN SEEING EVIDENCE IT MIGHT BE COMING OUT AND THE NEWS IS GOOD AND THE NEWS IS GOOD AND THE REASON I'M NOT QUITE PULLING OUT THE CHEERING YET IS WE HAVEN'T YET SEEN THE VACCINE ACTUALLY PREVENTS INFECTIONS THAT IS WHAT WE CARE ABOUT

OBVIOUSLY WE DON'T HAVE ANY LONGER TERM SAFETY DATA BUT I HAVE TO TELL YOU, I'M OPTIMISTIC THAT BOTH OF THEM WILL GO IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION AND WE WILL HAVE A VACCINE FROM THIS OR ONE OF THE OTHERS, THAT WILL BE WIDELY AVAILABLE, I THINK IN EARLY 2021 >> WELL IF EVERYTHING GOES WELL AND IS THAT THE CASE AND WE DO HAVE A VACCINE IN EARLY 2021, HOW QUICKLY DO WE GO FROM HAVING A VACCINE TO CONTAKE THIS VIRUS? >> YEAH SO ONE OF THE THINGS THAT HAS BEEN GREAT ABOUT THE FEDERAL RESPONSE HAS BEEN THIS OPERATION WARP SPEED WHICH HAS BEEN ABOUT RAMPING UP VACCINE PRODUCTION WELL BEFORE WE KNOW WHETHER THE VACCINE WORKS OR NOT I THINK IT IS A BET WORTH MAKING

IF THAT HAPPENS, THEN WE'LL HAVE A VACCINE AVAILABLE EARLY 2021 PEOPLE WILL START BEING ABLE TO GET IMMUNIZED AND THAT REALLY WILL HELP I THINK BY NEXT SUMMER, LIFE WILL LOOK DIFFERENT WE REALLY SHOULD HAVE MADE SUBSTANTIAL PROGRESS IN BRINGING THIS OUTBREAK UNDER CONTROL BY SOME TIME NEXT YEAR >>> SOME PEOPLE ARE SAYING EVEN IF THERE IS A VACCINE, I'M NOT SURE ABOUT IT

THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE GOING TO BE ON THE FENCE ABOUT GETTING IT, EVEN IF IT DOES COME OUT WHAT DO YOU SAY TO THEM? >> I COMPLETELY UNDERSTAND WHERE THEY ARE COMING FROM MY FEELING IS I DO WANT TO SEE THE SAFETY DATA THIS IS WHY I'M NOT PULLING OUT THE CHEERING YET THE QUESTION I'M GOING TO ASK IS DO I GET MY KIDS VACCINATED? MY PARENTS VACCINATED? I THINK WE ALL ARE GOING TO LOOK AT IT PRETTY HARD

I BELIEVE THE SAFETY DATA WILL COME THROUGH BUT WE HAVE TO LOOK AND SEE WHERE IT IS AND I DON'T THINK WE SHOULD VACCINATE PEOPLE UNTIL WE FEEL CONFIDENT >>> WE'LL KEEP OUR FINGERS CROSSED THANK YOU FOR YOUR EXPERTISE

AS PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP HINTED HE MAY DEPLOY FEDERAL AGENTS HERE TO DISCUSS THIS IS CHICAGO MAYOR LORI LIGHTFOOT THANK YOU FOR TALKING WITH US I KNOW IT IS A BUSY TIME LET'S START WITH THE CORONAVIRUS

YOU'VE ANNOUNCED FRESH RESTRICTIONS TO BRING DOWN THE NUMBER OF CASES IN CHICAGO WHICH INCLUDES PROHIBITING BARS AND SERVING INDOORS HAD YOU HAVE THE LATEST MEASURES WILL EASE THE SITUATION THERE?>> EVERYTHING WE'VE DONE FROM THE START OF THE PANDEMIC HAS BEEN DRIVEN BY THE SCIENCE ON THE DATA WHAT WE SEE IS AN UPTICK IN CASES IN 18 TO 20 NINE-YEAR- OLDS ACROSS EVERY DEMOGRAPHIC SO LOOKING AT THAT, WE ARE LOOKING AT THE PLACES WHERE THESE YOUNG PEOPLE GATHER GOOD ONE OF THE TOUGHEST PLACES IS IN BARS, VERY DIFFICULT TO IMPOSE SOCIAL DISTANCING A MASK REQUIREMENT INSIDE OF A BAR

I WAS SEE WHEN PEOPLE ARE DRINKING AND HAVING A GOOD TIME THEIR INHIBITIONS GO DOWN SO WE JUST FELT LIKE THIS WAS A PRUDENT COURSE, ALONG WITH, REALLY SHUTTING DOWN THE AMOUNT PEOPLE GATHERING IN INDOOR DINING, GYMS AND OTHER PLACES WHERE WE SEE THIS GALLERY OF COHORTS WE DO NOT WANT TO BE THE STORY OF FLORIDA OR GEORGIA OR TEXAS WE WANT TO BE AHEAD OF THIS CURVE AND THEN SLIDE UPTICK IN CASES IN WHICH IT IS MEASURED ON AN OF THE PENDANTS OF CAUTION >> I THOUGHT THIS WAS INTERESTED COULD YOU HAVE PROFESSIONALLY MANAGED BUILDERS TO RESTRICT VISITORS TO FIVE PERM UNIT WHAT DOES THAT MEAN AND HOW DO YOU ENFORCE IT? >> WE WERE HEARING FROM PROPERTY MANAGE THAT THEY WERE CONCERNED ABOUT WHAT WAS HAPPENING IS, BECAUSE PEOPLE HAD RESTRICTIONS IN BARS AND OTHER PLACES OF ENTERTAINMENT, THEY HAD LARGE HOUSE PARTIES

WE WERE CRACKING DOWN ON AIRBNB BUT THIS IS REALLY SOMETHING THAT WE HEARD FROM PROPERTY MANAGERS AND WE WERE RESPONDED TO THAT LOOK, WE'RE JUST TRYING TO MAKE SURE THAT WE GET THE MESSAGE ACROSS TO THE YOUNG PEOPLE BUT THAT THEY ARE IN THIS FIGHT JUST LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE THEY'VE GOT TO BE PART OF THE SOLUTION IF THEY ARE TAKING RISKS NOT ONLY WITH THEIR OWN LIVES BUT THE LIVES OF EVERYONE THEY COME INTO CONTACT WITH AND WE ALL FELT LIKE WE WERE IN OUR 20s THAT WE ARE INVINCIBLE THIS VIRUS IS REALLY SWIFT

WE'VE GOT TO REMAIN DILIGENT AND WE STUDIED THESE NUMBERS VERY, VERY CAREFULLY EVERY DAY WE DO THE CASE EXAMINATION TO UNDERSTAND WHERE THE NEW CASES ARE COMING FROM AND THAT'S A WE HAVE TAKEN THE STEPS, REALLY TARGETED AT 18 TO 29-YEAR-OLD COHORT WE ARE DOING ADDITIONAL SOCIAL INFLUENCERS AND MESSAGING WORK COME IN TO TRY TO DRILL DOWN AND REACH YOUNG PEOPLE AND LET THEM KNOW THAT THEY'RE PUTTING THEMSELVES AT RISK AND THEY CAN BE PART OF THE SOLUTION

I'VE NEVER TURNED OVER THE STREETS OF CHICAGO VIGILANTES THAT IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN WE ARE ACTIVELY INVESTIGATING AND WE HAVE ARRESTED MANY THAT DOESN'T JUSTIFY ANY EXCESSIVE FORCE AGAINST PROTESTERS THAT IS NEVER ACCEPTABLE

IN THIS DIFFICULT TIME AND WHAT I HOPE WE CONTINUE TO EXERCISE IS THAT EVEN THOUGH WE MAY ACT DIFFERENT VIEWS WE'VE GOT TO BUILD BRIDGES TO EACH OTHER, AND SO THAT WE CAN FIND THE COMMON GROUND CHICAGO HAS A LONG HISTORY OF PEACEFUL PROTEST AND WE NEED TO BUILD ON THAT HISTORY, NOT THE VIGILANTE IS THEM THAT WE SAW ON FULL DISPLAY ON FRIDAY NIGHT>> MAYOR HAVE DRESSED BEFORE WE GO, IF PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP HAS ALREADY DEPLOYED, AS YOU KNOW, FEDERAL AID TO PORTLAND AND HE WANTS TO DO THE SAME THING IN CHICAGO WHAT IS YOUR REACTION TO THAT? >> I'M NOT HAVING ANYTHING LIKE WHAT HAPPENED IN PORTLAND-VERY CLEAR, I'M A FORMER FEDERAL PROSECUTOR

WHAT DO YOU SAY TO THAT ARGUMENT THAT NO ONE IS FORCING KIDS INTO THE SCHOOLS THEY CAN LEARN FROM OTHER COMPUTERS IF NEEDED TO>> THEY GAVE THE COMMUNITY AT LARGE A CHOICE TO GO TO THE BEACHES, TO BE RECKLESS AT BARS AND RESTAURANTS WE CANNOT SIMPLY GET THIS WRONG IN OUR PUBLIC SCHOOLS THERE ARE 2

I THINK WE'VE SEEN EVIDENCE THAT IT MIGHT BE COMING OUT AND THEN NEWS IS GOOD AND THE REASON I'M NOT QUITE PULLING UP THE POM-POMS IT IS THAT WE HAVEN'T YET SEEN THE VACCINE EXIT PREVENTING INFECTIONS WHICH IS WHAT WE CARE ABOUT IT SHOWS THAT IT IS AN IMMUNE RESPONSE I WAS THE WE DON'T HAVE ANY LONGER-TERM SAFETY DATA SO WE DON'T KNOW HOW SAFE IT WILL BE BUT I HAVE TO TELL YOU I'M OPTIMISTIC THAT BOTH OF THEM WILL GO ON THE RIGHT DIRECTION AND WE WILL HAVE A VACCINE FROM THIS ARE ONE OF THE OTHERS, WIDELY AVAILABLE, I THINK COME IN EARLY 2021

>> IF EVERYTHING GOES WELL AND WE DO HAVE A VACCINE IN EARLY 2021, HOW QUICKLY DO WE GO FROM HAVING THE VACCINE, TO CONTAINING THIS VIRUS?>> ONE OF THE THINGS THAT IS GREAT ABOUT THE FEDERAL RESPONSE, HAS BEEN THIS OPERATION WARP SPEED WHICH HAS BEEN ABOUT RAMPING UP VACCINE PRODUCTION WELL BEFORE WE KNOW IF IT WORKS OR NOT WITH THE IDEA THAT MAYBE A COUPLE OF THOSE THINGS WILL BE RAMPED UP AND THROWING AWAY I THINK IT IS A BIT WORTH MAKING IF THIS HAPPENS WE WILL HAVE A VACCINE AVAILABLE EARLY 2021 A PEOPLE WILL GET IMMUNIZED AND GET THE VACCINE

IN THIS REALLY WILL HELP BY NEXT SUMMER, LIFE SHOULD LOOK DIFFERENT AGAIN, ASSUMING EVERYTHING GOES SMOOTHLY WE REALLY SHOULD HAVE MADE SUBSTANTIAL PROGRESS IN BRINGING THIS APPLICANT UNDER CONTROL NEXT YEAR >> SOME PEOPLE SAY EVEN IF THERE IS A VACCINE, I'M NOT SO SURE ABOUT IT THEY RUSHED THE PROCESS AND THEY DON'T KNOW IF IT IS SAFE THERE ARE PEOPLE ON THE FENCE ABOUT GETTING IT EVEN IF IT DOES COME OUT

WHAT YOU SAY TO THEM?>> I COMPLETELY UNDERSTAND WHERE THEY'RE COMING FROM AND MY FEELING IS, I DO WANT TO SEE THE DATA WHICH IS WHY I'M NOT HOLDING OUT THE POM-POMS YET IT IS IMPORTANT, THE QUESTION WILL ASK MYSELF IS TO GET MY KIDS VACCINATED OR PARENTS VACCINATED? I WILL LOOK AT THE SAFETY DATA WE WILL LOOK AT IT PRETTY HARD I BELIEVE THE SAFETY DATA WILL COME THROUGH BUT WE'VE GOT TO LOOK AT THE DATA TO SEE WHERE IT IS I DON'T THINK WE SHOULD BE VACCINATING UNTIL WE FEEL CONFIDENT THAT THERE IS GOOD SAFETY DATA FOR THE VACCINE

>> A REMINDER FOR ALL OF WHAT IS AT STAKE >> HE QUIT ON YOU HE QUIT ON THE COUNTRY THE ELECTION IS NOT JUST ABOUT HIM IT IS ABOUT US

IT IS ABOUT YOU IT IS ABOUT WHAT WE WILL DO, WHAT A PRESIDENT IS SUPPOSED TO DO HE IS SUPPOSED TO CARE HE IS SUPPOSED TO LEAD AND TAKE RESPONSIBILITY NEVER GIVE UP

THAT IS WHAT PRESIDENTS ARE SUPPOSED TO DO OVER THE LAST TWO WEEKS I SHARED MY PLAN FOR ECONOMIC RECOVERY I CAUGHT BUILD BACK BETTER BECAUSE WE CAN JUST BUILD BACK TO THE WAY THINGS WERE BEFORE WE HAVE TO DO A BETTER THE FIRST PLANK IN MY BILL REJECTS THE DEFEATIST VIEW THAT AUTOMATION AND GLOBALIZATION MEANS WE CANNOT ENSURE AMERICAN WORKERS

THERE IS A FUTURE MADE IN AMERICA THE SECOND PLANK SHOWS US THAT I WILL COMPETE WITH THE REST OF THE WORLD AND TACKLE CLIMATE CHANGE MILLIONS OF AMERICANS WILL BE WORKING WITH GOOD UNION JOBS TODAY, I AM OUTLINING THE THIRD PLANK OF MY BUILD BACK BETTER PROGRAM MOBILIZING A 21ST-CENTURY CARE AND ELDERLY CHILD CARE EDUCATION WORKFORCE TO DEAL WITH CAREGIVING CRISIS

IT IS A CRISIS IN THIS COUNTRY IF WE WANT TO REWARD WORK IN THIS COUNTRY WE HAVE TO EASE THE FINANCIAL BURDEN OF CARE THAT FAMILIES ARE CARRYING LET THE ELEVATOR AND COMPENSATION OF THOSE PROVIDING CARE AND THAT DIGNITY OF CAREGIVING WORKERS AND EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATORS EVEN BEFORE THE PANDEMIC MILLIONS OF WORKING FAMILIES HAD EMERGENCY STRAINS TRYING TO RAISE HER KIDS AND CARE FOR THEIR PARENTS OR LOVED ONES WHO LIVE WITH DISABILITIES THIS IS THE SANDWICH GENERATION

EVERYONE FROM AN 18-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER CARING FOR HER MOM WHO SUDDENLY GET SICK TO A 40- YEAR-OLD DAD RAISING HIS CHILD AND CARING FOR HIS AGING PARENTS THE JOY AND LOVE ARE ALWAYS THERE IT IS HARD I KNOW IT IS HARD IT IS REALLY HARD

FAMILIES ARE SQUEEZED EMOTIONALLY AND FINANCIALLY THEY NEED HELP TOO OFTEN THEY CAN AFFORD IT THE PROFESSIONAL CAREGIVERS OUT THERE, THE HOME HEALTHCARE WORKERS, CHILDCARE WORKERS, MORE OFTEN THEY ARE WOMEN, WOMEN OF COLOR AND IMMIGRANTS AND UNDERPAID AND UNDERVALUED THE PANDEMIC HITS AND SQUEEZES AND TIGHTENS ON EVERYONE

NURSING HOMES HAVE BEEN HIT HARD IF YOU ARE A FRONT-LINE WORKER, YOU STRUGGLE TO FIND SAFE CHILDCARE FOR YOUR KIDS OTHERS BECOME UNEXPECTED 24/7 CAREGIVERS YOU TRY TO KEEP YOUR CHILDREN SAFE AND LEARNING WHY YOU CONTINUE TO WORK FROM HOME YOU HAD TO PUT YOUR CAREER ON HOLD AND SEEN HOURS CUT OR JOBS LOSS

IT'S CONFUSION CONFUSION OVER SCHOOL REOPENING ONLY MAKES THINGS WORSE YOU KNOW, IN THE LAST FEW MONTHS IT HAS UNDERSCORED HOW VITAL IT IS FOR FAMILIES AND AMERICANS TO HAVE MORE HOME CARE AND COMMUNITY CARE, CHOICES THAT FIT THEIR REAL NEEDS WE ARE TRAPPED IN A CAREGIVING CRISIS WE HAVE AN ECONOMIC CRISIS AND A HEALTHCARE CRISIS ALL TOGETHER

YOU ARE DOING EVERYTHING YOU CAN BUT THIS PRESIDENT IS NOT IF I AM YOUR PRESIDENT, HERE'S WHAT I WOULD DO FIRST, LET'S START BY CARING FOR AGING RELATIVES AND LOVED ONES WITH DISABILITIES AND HELP THEM LIVE INDEPENDENTLY HERE IS AN EXAMPLE RIGHT NOW THERE ARE 800,000 PEOPLE ELIGIBLE FOR HOME AND COMMUNITY CARE THROUGH MEDICAID WHO HAVE SIGNED UP FOR IT

THEY ARE WAITING FOR A PHONE CALL THEY NEED A CALL BACK FOR SOME THE WEIGHT IS FIVE YEARS FIVE YEARS MY PLAN MAKES A BOLD INVESTMENT SO STATES CAN CLEAR THE WAY TO MAKE SURE WE EASE THE FINANCIAL BURDEN FOR MORE FAMILIES GOING FORWARD WE HAVE TO MAKE LONG-TERM INVESTMENTS

WE WILL HAVE A MAJOR INNOVATION FUND ALLOWING STATES TO TEST AND EXPAND THE SUCCESSFUL WAYS TO IMPROVE HOME AND COMMUNITY CARE AND INCREASE PREVENTION AND REDUCE THE COST OF HOSPITALIZATION THINK OF EXPANDED VITAL SERVICES LIKE RIDES TO APPOINTMENTS, DAY PROGRAMS FOR SENIORS MAKING THEIR HOME SAVER IT BUILDS ON AN INNOVATIVE AND CREATIVE VERSION OF THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT THIS IS THE PROGRAM THAT THE PRESIDENT IS TRYING TO GUT

THERE IS A PILOT PROGRAM NOW IN 27 CITIES WHERE A NURSE, AN OCCUPATIONAL THERAPIST AND A HANDYMAN COME TO THE HOME CARING FOR AN AGING FAMILY MEMBER THEY MIGHT NOT BE ABLE TO CURE MOMS ALZHEIMER'S, BUT THEY CAN MAKE SURE SHE DOESN'T BREAK HER HIP THEY WALK IN THE HOUSE THIS IS WHAT IS GOING ON NOW THEY INSTALL HANDRAILS IN THE RIGHT SPOTS

THEY HAVE IT IN THE HOUSE THE BATHROOM OR FIX THE DOOR THAT IS STUCK SO SHE DOES NOT TRIP WHILE SHE TRIES TO OPEN IT INITIALLY THEY FOUND THAT ABOUT $3000 IN PROGRAM COSTS YIELDED $20,000 IN SAVINGS FOR THE GOVERNMENT IN HOSPITALIZATION AND OTHER THINGS SIMPLE STEPS TO SAVE LIVES AND MONEY AND PROVIDE PEACE OF MIND HERE IS ANOTHER EXAMPLE WHETHER YOU LIVE IN NORTH CAROLINA OR PHILADELPHIA, PEOPLE OF COLOR ARE ECONOMICALLY DISTRESSED AND THEY HAVE PUNISHING HEALTH DISPARITIES

THERE IS DISCRIMINATION THEY DON'T HAVE HEALTH INSURANCE THEY DON'T SEE A DOCTOR SOMETIMES LANGUAGE IS A BARRIER THEY SLIP THROUGH THE CRACKS AND THE GAPS SO THEIR TREATABLE CONDITION, BECAUSE THEY CAN'T AFFORD TO GO TO THE DOCTOR BECOMES A CHRONIC CONDITION

THAT IS WHY COMMUNITY HEALTH WORKERS ARE HEROES THEY GO TO THESE COMMUNITIES AND MAKE SURE THAT PEOPLE ARE GETTING THE CARE THEY NEED MY PLAN PUTS TO WORK 150,000 MORE OF THESE WORKERS IN OUR COMMUNITIES THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY THESE ARE THE THINGS WE CAN DO NOW SECONDLY, WE CAN ALSO MAKE HIGH- QUALITY CHILDCARE AFFORDABLE AND ACCESSIBLE

THE PLAN IS STRAIGHTFORWARD EVERY THREE-YEAR- OLD AND FOUR- YEAR-OLD CHILD GETS FREE HIGH QUALITY PRESCHOOL , LIKE STUDENTS HAVE HERE AND LOW OR MIDDLE INCOME FAMILIES WILL NOT SPEND MORE THAN 7% OF THEIR INCOME FOR CHILD CARE FOR CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF FIVE MOST FAMILIES DON'T HAVE TO SPEND A DIME HERE'S HOW IT WORKS WE CAN EITHER DECIDE TO GET UP TO AN $8000 CREDIT FOR CHILD CARE

FOR MIDDLE CLASS FAMILIES THAT MEANS AN ANNUAL SAVINGS OF $8000 IN THEIR POCKET IT'S $300 A WEEK IT IS A TAX CREDIT IT IS EVERYTHING TO WORKING FAMILIES LIVING PAYCHECK TO PAYCHECK THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT WOULD SEND FUNDING TO STATES WHICH WORK WITH CHILDCARE PROVIDERS TO COVER THE COST FOR WORKING FAMILIES WITH YOUNG CHILDREN OVER 7% OF THEIR INCOME WOULD NOT HAVE TO BE SPENT

SAY BOTH PARENTS ARE WORKING AND YOU GO TO CHILDCAREGOV CREATED UNDER THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION TO FIND CHILDCARE THAT WORKS ON A PLAN IT TAKES YOU TO YOUR STATE WEBSITE LOCAL CHILDCARE CENTERS POP UP YOU CAN CALL OR FILL IN YOUR INFORMATION

YOU APPLY TO WHICH ONE YOU WANT TO GO TO THE STATE SEND YOU A LETTER SAYING YOU ARE APPROVED AND TELLS YOU HOW MUCH YOU WILL PAY THE STATE SENDS THAT INFORMATION TO THE CHILDCARE PROVIDER AND THEN THE STATE REIMBURSES THE CHILDCARE CENTER ON THE BACKEND YOU JUST PAY WHAT YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO PAY NOT A DIME FOR SOME WORKING FAMILIES AND NO MORE THAN 7% FOR ANYONE ELSE

YOU CAN DO THAT THIS WILL SAVE FAMILIES THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS MORE IMPORTANTLY IT GIVES THEM PEACE OF MIND THERE ARE OTHER COMMON SENSE TIPS WE CAN TAKE LIKE EXPANDING TAX CREDITS FOR BUSINESSES TO BUILD CHILDCARE FACILITIES ON SITE SO YOU CAN GO TO WORK WITH YOUR CHILD PUT THEM IN A CHILDCARE CENTER THAT THE COMPANY GOT MONEY FOR WITH TAX CREDITS

THEY WILL SUPPORT MORE AND MORE AND GIVE PEACE OF MIND TO FAMILIES AND WHEN YOU'RE FINISHED WORK TAKE YOUR CHILD HOME AFTERCARE AND WEEKEND AND SUMMER CARE THIRD, WE EXPAND ACCESS TO CAREGIVING WE NEED TO PAY AND SUPPORT CAREGIVERS BEYOND WHAT THEY ARE NOW THEY ARE DOING GOD'S WORK AND HOME HEALTH WORKERS ARE NOT PAID MUCH

THEY HAVE FEW BENEFITS 40% ARE STILL ON SNAP OR MEDICAID MY PLAN IS DIRECT IT GIVES CAREGIVERS AN EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATORS A RACE NO ONE SHOULD HAVE TO WORK MORE THAN ONE JOB TO MAKE ENDS MEET

UNDER MY HEALTH CARE PLAN THAT DEFENDS AND EXPENDS OBAMACARE THERE WILL BE MORE AFFORDABLE HEALTH INSURANCE I WILL MAKE SURE WORKERS HAVE AN EFFECTIVE WAY TO UNIT UNIONIZE AND PROTECT THEIR RIGHTS AND EARN BENEFITS THIS IS FOR THOSE WITHOUT COLLEGE DEGREES AND THEY CAN GAIN NEW SKILLS IN HEALTHCARE AND PROVIDE PATHWAYS TO ADVANCE CAREERS A HOME HEALTHCARE WORKER CAN HAVE ACCESS TO TRAINING TO BECOME AN EMT OR NURSE OR PHYSICIAN'S ASSISTANT OR EVEN A DOCTOR THE EARLY CHILDHOOD GOOD EDUCATOR CAN RECEIVING COACHING

WE CAN DO THIS THE BOTTOM LINE IS THAT A MOBILIZED CAREGIVING AN EARLY G EDUCATION WORKFORCE WOULD SAVE FAMILIES TIME AND MONEY, GET THEIR LOVED ONES THEY CARE AND EDUCATION THEY NEED AND PUT MORE PEOPLE TO WORK ALLOWING HUSBANDS AND WIVES TO GO BACK TO WORK AND PROVIDE MANY THE OPPORTUNITY TO GET A JOB IT KEEPS SENIORS IN THEIR HOMES IT IS A TRIPLE WIN IF THEY CHOOSE AT AND RECOGNIZE REALITIES FACING MODERN FAMILIES THEY NEED ECONOMIC SUPPORT EVEN IN THE MIDDLE OF A PANDEMIC

IMAGINE, IF WE COULD PUT 3 MILLION AMERICANS TO WORK IN NEW CARE AND EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION, COMBINED WITH MY PROPOSAL TO PROVIDE UP TO 12 WEEKS OF FAMILY LEAVE WE COULD FREE UP MILLIONS OF PEOPLE TO JOIN THE PAID LABOR FORCE INCREASING ECONOMIC GROWTH WE NEED TO MILLION ADDITIONAL JOBS FOR ECONOMIC GROWTH FOR THE NATION THIS IS A FRESH AND BOLD WAY TO BUILD THE LABOR FORCE AND HELP US RECOVER FASTER AND STRONGER WE USUALLY TALK ABOUT JOBS PACKAGES AND THERE IS A BIG PUSH ON SHOVEL READY JOBS WE ARE ALWAYS FOCUSED ON SHOVEL READY

WHAT WE CAN DO IMMEDIATELY THAT IS WHAT THESE JOBS ARE THERE SHOVEL READY THE WORKERS ARE READY NOW THESE JOBS CAN BE FILLED NOW

PRIMARILY WOMEN WILL GET BACK TO WORK NOW WAIT UNTIL YOU SEE THE GROWTH IN FAMILY INCOME IT IS THE RIGHT THING TO DO FOR OUR FAMILIES AND ESSENTIAL WORKERS IT'S ALSO THE SMART THING TO DO TODAY PEOPLE CAN'T PURSUE THE JOBS THEY DREAM OF BECAUSE OF CAREGIVING

THAT MEANS TENS OF BILLIONS OF DOLLARS LESS IN WAGES EACH YEAR FOR WORKING FAMILIES IT MEANS MORE DESTRUCTION FOR BUSINESSES AND FEWER JOBS AND GROWTH IN OUR ECONOMY IS SLOWED THIS IS A MORAL AND ECONOMIC IMPERATIVE FOR THE NATION WE PAY FOR IT BY HAVING TAX CUTS SOME OF THE TRUE $2 TRILLION TAX CUTS WERE CLOSING LOOPHOLES

UNPRODUCTIVE TAX CUTS HIGH INCOME EARNERS HAVE TO PAY THEIR TAX BILLS WE INVEST THAT AND THAT WOULD BE $775 BILLION OVER 10 YEARS INVEST THAT IN OUR ECONOMY AND GROWING IT STRONGER AND TOMORROW I WILL BE JOINING A VIRTUAL TOWN HALL HOME CARE WORKERS AND FAST CARE WORKERS I WILL HEAR FROM THEM ABOUT WHY THIS MATTERS SO MUCH TO THEM

THIS IS ABOUT SOMETHING BIGGER THIS IS ABOUT DIGNITY AND RESPECT WE NEED TO RESPECT WORKING PEOPLE THAT IS WHAT THIS ELECTION IS ALL ABOUT DIGNITY AND RESPECT

THE AMERICAN PEOPLE KNOW THEY ARE NOT BEING RESPECTED IN THEIR JOB THE AMERICAN PRESIDENT HAS A DUTY TO CARE FOR ALL OF US HE NEEDS TO SEE PEOPLE WHERE THEY ARE AND UNDERSTAND WHAT THEY ARE GOING THROUGH HE NEEDS TO KNOW WHAT THEY WANT TO BE MANY OF YOU KNOW I WAS A SINGLE PARENT FOR FIVE YEARS AFTER MY WIFE AND DAUGHTER WERE KILLED AND MY BOYS WERE INJURED

I HAD SUPPORT BUT IT WAS HARD IT WAS HARD IF I DIDN'T HAVE MY MOTHER AND MY SISTER AND BROTHER, I DON'T KNOW HOW I WOULD'VE BEEN ABLE TO AFFORD IT THEN, SIX YEARS LATER I SAW HOW DIFFICULT IT WAS FOR JILL TO START HER TEACHING CAREER THEY WEREN'T IN SCHOOL YET

WE CARED FOR APPEARANCE AT THE END MY DAD WAS MONTHS IN HOSPICE IN OUR HOME THE, THE SAME WITH MY MOM OUR ENTIRE FAMILY WAS THERE FOR OUR SON, BEAU HE CAME HOME AFTER ONE YEAR IN IRAQ WITH A CANCER THAT WAS WHETHER HE WOULD LIVE, HOW LONG HE WOULD LIVE INSTEAD WE KNOW WHAT IT IS LIKE

MONTHS UPON MONTHS WE KNOW SO MANY OF YOU ARE GOING THROUGH THE SAME THING WITHOUT THE KIND OF HELP I HAD NOW, EVERYTHING, EVERYTHING FEELS DIFFERENT IT IS THAT FEELING, THAT SENSE WHEN YOU JUST DON'T KNOW IF EVERYTHING IS GOING TO TURN OUT OKAY I AM HERE TO TELL YOU, IT CAN BE

IT WILL BE MY DAD WAS AN HONORABLE MAN HIS GREAT REGRET WAS THAT HE NEVER GOT TO GO TO COLLEGE MY DAD, LIKE MANY OF YOUR PARENTS GOT KNOCKED DOWN A FEW TIMES HE ALWAYS GOT BACKUP

HE WORKED HARD TO BUILD A GREAT MIDDLE-CLASS LIFE FOR OUR FAMILY HE USED TO HAVE A SAYING HE WOULD SAY JOEY, I DON'T EXPECT THE GOVERNMENT TO SOLVE MY PROBLEMS I SURE EXPECT THEM TO UNDERSTAND MY PROBLEMS I UNDERSTAND TO MY VERY CORE

I ALSO KNOW THAT TOGETHER WE CAN DO THIS THIS IS AMERICA WE DON'T SETTLE WE ASPIRE WE SUCCEED

LET'S GET THE HECK UP AND GET IT DONE LET'S GET TO WORK AS I HEARD MY GRANDFATHER SAY I WOULD GO TO SCRANTON WHEN MY DAD LOST HIS JOB AND WE WERE LIVING WITH MY GRANDFATHER EVERY TIME HE WOULD SAY JOE, I KEEP THE FAITH MY GRANDMOTHER WOULD SAY NO

SPREAD IT OR SPREAD THE FAITH WE CAN DO THIS THERE IS NOT A SINGLE THING WE CANNOT DO THANK YOU FOR LISTENING

I LOOK FORWARD TO HAVING YOUR QUESTIONS AT ANOTHER TIME I'M OFF TO ANOTHER EVENT THANK YOU FOR HAVING US HERE WE APPRECIATE IT VERY MUCH THANK YOU

ARE YOU WORRIED ABOUT THIS? >> RIGHT HERE THIS IS THE MOST DIVISIVE THING ON THE EARTH RIGHT NOW >> I HAVE TO PUT MY FIST THERE THAT IS WHAT AMERICA IS ABOUT INDIVIDUALISM >> WHEN SOMETHING IS BEING IMPOSED BY THE GOVERNMENT, THAT TOUCHES DEEP FEELINGS ABOUT INDIVIDUAL FREEDOMS >> MASK, NO MASS

IT IS AN ARGUMENT AMERICANS HAVE BEEN HAVING MOST DOCTORS AND SCIENTISTS SAY THIS PREVENTS THE SPREAD OF THE VIRUS SOME REMAIN SPECTACLE SOMETHING SIMILAR HAPPENED 100 YEARS AGO >> YES

IT WAS A SECOND WAVE OF THE PANDEMIC IT IS THE DEADLIEST WAY THAT IS WHEN MASK ORDERS AND ANY RECOMMENDATION TO WHERE MASK STARTS TO PAY OFF >> SURGEONS BEGAN WEARING MASKS IN THE LATE 1800S IN 1918 FLU PANDEMICS TOOK THE PRACTICE OUTSIDE OF THE OPERATING FOR THE FIRST TIME

IT WAS THE DEADLIEST FLU OUTBREAK IN HISTORY 50 MILLION PEOPLE DIED AND THERE WERE 675,000 DEATHS IN THE UNITED STATES MASK WEARING IN PUBLIC WAS MANDATORY IN WESTERN CITIES LIKE SAN FRANCISCO, SEATTLE IN DENVER >> IT WAS A SURGICAL MASK MADE OUT OF FOUR, SIX PLIES OF MATERIAL THEY WERE MANUFACTURED BY SEVERAL COMPANIES AND MADE BY A BUNCH OF MAFIAS ACROSS THE NATION

IT JUST HAD TO BE A FACE COVERING, SORT OF LIKE WHAT WE SAW TODAY THEY HAD CHIFFON FACE MASS THERE WERE PEOPLE WHO PUSHED BACK AND REFUSED TO WEAR THE MASKS OR WERE CAUGHT WITHOUT MASKS TEMPORARILY LETTING IT DANGLE OR MOVING IT OR TAKING IT DOWN TO GET A BITE TO EAT WE HAVE REPORTS FROM EVERY CITY THAT ISSUED THESE ORDERS OF HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE BEING A LESS THAN SAN FRANCISCO IS A PRIME EXAMPLE

THEY HAD STOP ENFORCING THIS BECAUSE GEL JAIL CELLS WERE FILLING UP TOO QUICKLY >> SAN FRANCISCO'S REQUIREMENT TO WHERE MASK IS SO UNPOPULAR THAT IN 1919 A GROUP OF RESIDENTS DECIDED TO ORGANIZE 2000 PEOPLE MEET TO FORM THE ANTI- MASK LEAGUE THEY HAVE A MASK PROTEST AND DECIDE EVERY MORNING WHAT TO DO THEY LISTENED TO SPEECHES ABOUT WHY MASS WERE NOT EFFECTIVE IN SOME PEOPLE SAID IT WAS UNCONSTITUTIONAL AND PEOPLE BELIEVED THAT THE GOVERNMENT DOES NOT HAVE A RIGHT TO TELL THEM WHAT TO DO

ONE MEMBER OF THE COUNTY BOARD OF SUPERVISORS WAS PART OF THE ANTI-MASK LEAGUE >> CASES CONTINUED TO DECLINE THE OFFICIALS ENDED MANDATORY MASK WEARING IN FEBRUARY 1919 PEOPLE ARE DYING >> I AM AN AMERICAN AND I FEEL LIKE I CAN DO WHAT I WANT TO

>> ASIAN COUNTRIES INCLUDING JAPAN WERE QUICK TO ADOPT MASK WEARING >> THE JAPANESE IN 19 18 TO 1920 WERE ENTHUSIASTIC ABOUT COSMOPOLITAN IDEAS THE MASS CAME TO THE PUBLIC AT THAT TIME IT WAS A SIGN OF STABILITY IN POST-WORLD WAR II 2 THE JAPANESE GOVERNMENT SAID NO

GET YOUR VACCINE PEOPLE CLUNG TO MASK WEARING THE MASK SEEMS TO HAVE BROKEN FREE FROM PUBLIC HEALTH ISSUES AND IT HAS BECOME SOMETHING ABOUT PERSONAL SPACE AND STYLE EVEN AND YOU CAN HAVE A CHIC MASK OR MASK FOR STYLE >> IT IS PRETTY COMMON IN WINTER TO PROTECT AGAINST THE FLU AND POLLEN AND HAYFEVER MANY BELIEVE IT IS PERFECTLY NORMAL TO WEAR A MASK IN JAPAN

>> THIS HAS BEEN NATURAL IT IS SOMETHING THEY TAKE FOR GRANTED >> I THINK WE NEED TO GET PAST THAT RUGGED AMERICAN INDIVIDUALISM BECAUSE WE ARE ON THIS TOGETHER IT IS NOT JUST ABOUT PROTECTING YOURSELF, IT'S ABOUT PROTECTING ALL OF SOCIETY >> >>> GUN VIOLENCE ERUPTED ACROSS CHICAGO WITH 60 PEOPLE SHOT AND AT LEAST 12 KILLED

WE SPOKE TO A YOUNG WOMAN WHO WAS ONCE A VICTIM OF THE VIOLENCE AND WE WANT TO WARN YOU, SOME OF THIS VIDEO COULD BE DISTURBING >> IT WAS A DAY SHE EXPECTED TO REMEMBER BUT BECAME ONE SHE WOULD NEVER BE ALLOWED TO FORGET >> I LOOKED UP AND MY FRIEND WAS LOOKING AT ME LIKE I SEE YOU >> MAY 31, THE MOST VIOLENT DAY IN CHICAGO AND 60 YEARS 48 PEOPLE WERE SHOT, 18 WERE KILLED

I'M ON THE GROUND I WAS SCREAMING I HIT THE PAVEMENT AND I WAS LIKE — IN MY HEAD EVERYTHING WENT BAD >> YOUR FRIEND HAD TO TELL YOU YOU WERE SHOT? >> YES I GO THEY CALLED 911

BULLETS HIT ABOVE HER ELBOW >> AFTER TWO MINUTES I SAID THEY ARE NOT COMING FOR ME >> IT WAS ONE OF 65,000 CALLS THAT DAY IN A CITY THAT AVERAGES AROUND 12,000 911 TRIED TO CALL BACK AND HER CRUISER WAS DISPATCHED WITHIN MINUTES BUT SHE LEFT WITH HER MOTHER >> I SAID MOM I'M SHOCKED

PEOPLE WERE RUNNING I SAID YOU ARE GOING TO SEE ME >> IN THE WEEK OF GEORGE FLOYD'S KILLING CITIES HAD MASSIVE PROTESTS AND LOOTING SHE SUPPORTS PROTEST BUT THOSE WHO MANAGE THE CHAOS THREATENED HER SURVIVAL >> I WOULD FEEL THE CARS SLOW DOWN I SAID WHY ARE YOU SLOWING DOWN

I LOOKED OUT AND I SAW THE PEOPLE AND I REMEMBER KICKING MY FEET UP I SAID ARMS IN I LOVE YOU >> SHE GREW UP IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD AND WAS FAMILIAR WITH GUN VIOLENCE SHOOTINGS ARTS IS URGING NATIONWIDE

NEW YORK, ATLANTA, PHILADELPHIA ALL HAVE DOUBLE- DIGIT INCREASES IN SHOOTINGS IN CHICAGO OTHER CRIME IS DOWN BUT SHOOTINGS ARE UP 42% WITH COMPARISON TO LAST YEAR >> I KNOW HOW IT FEELS THEY SAY HOW DOES THAT MAKE YOU FEEL? WHAT DOES IT MAKE YOU WANT TO DO? >> I SAID GRANDMA, HELP ME >> I SAID MAYBE THIS IS NOT THE RIGHT THING

>> THE POLICE DEPARTMENT TELLS US KNOW SUSPECT IS IN CUSTODY FOR THE SHOOTING AND DETECTIVES ARE STILL INVESTIGATING DESPITE EARLY ACADEMIC STRUGGLES SHE GRADUATED WITH HONORS AFTER FINDING HER FOCUS THROUGH ACTIVISM SHE IS AGAINST GUN VIOLENCE AND FOR RESOURCES NEEDED TO ROOT IT OUT >> WE ARE OUT HERE MARCHING FOR PEACE

WE ARE DELIGHTED IT IS TIME TO STRIKE >> WHEN ASKED WHAT HAPPENED TO HER SHE DOESN'T THINK POLICE ARE THE ANSWER WE NEED MORE ACTUAL HELP LIKE HOSPITALS AND SPORTS OR SCHOOLS WE DON'T NEED POLICE

THERE IS NEW VOICE IN RESTRUCTURING CITY BUDGETS THIS IS AN ISSUE THAT HAS BECOME CENTRAL TO TRUMP'S REELECTION CAMPAIGN >> DEFUNDING OF THE POLICE DEPARTMENT, WE'RE SORRY, NO ONE IS HERE TO TAKE YOUR CALL >> YES WE COULD HAVE CONDOS

THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED TO ME MOVE YOUR MONEY WHERE MATTERS >> OR HER EXPERIENCE ROOTED IN A NEAR TOTAL COLLISION OF TRENDS SEEN NATIONALLY >> IT'S LIKE I AM COMING TO SAVE THE HOOD WE'RE NOT GOING OUT LIKE THIS

IT IS NOT STOPPING ME >> ELECTION DAY IS 106 DAYS AWAY AND FOR THE FIRST TIME IN FLORIDA, 1 MILLION POTENTIAL NEW VOTERS, CONVICTED FELONS THIS 53-YEAR-OLD LOST HER VOTING RIGHT AFTER CONVICTED FOR DRUG TRAFFICKING >> IT MADE ME FEEL WORTHLESS LIKE I WAS NOT EVEN A CITIZEN OF THE UNITED STATES >> I COULDN'T VOTE

MY VOICE COULD NOT BE HEARD >> NOW, I FEEL VINDICATED >> NOT SO FAST SAYS THE GOVERNOR? >> THOSE ARE THE THINGS BEING LITIGATED HE CHALLENGED AND AMENDMENT AUTOMATICALLY RESTORING VOTING RIGHTS FLORIDA HAD BEEN AMONG 11 STATES MAKING IT DIFFICULT FOR FELONS TO EVER VOTE AGAIN

TWO YEARS AGO A MAJORITY OF FLORIDIANS REVERSED COURSE RESTORING VOTING RIGHTS AFTER FELONS COMPLETED ALL THE TERMS OF THE SENTENCE THE GOVERNOR SAYS ALL TERMS MEANS JUST THAT IF YOU WERE ROBBED AND SOMEONE IS CONVICTED OF TAKING $3000 OUT OF YOUR HOUSE AND THEY WERE ORDERED TO PAY YOU $3000 RESTITUTION AND THEY DIDN'T DO IT TODAY COMPLETE THE SENTENCE? >> THE SUPREME COURT SIDED WITH THE GOVERNOR PREVENTING FELONS FROM VOTING IN NOVEMBER UNLESS THEY PAY UP WHAT THEY OWE CRITICS FIGHTING FOR THE RIGHT TO VOTE SAY REQUIRING PAYMENT IS JUST A TWIST ON OLD LULLS >> YES

THAT IS THE PROCESS THREE YEARS WERE SPENT IN PRISON ON A DRUG CHARGE AND THEN HE WENT TO LAW SCHOOL THE PAY TO VOTE SYSTEM IS UNFAIR THE OVERWHELMING OF MAJORITY WILL BE UNABLE TO PLAY >> PEOPLE LIKE ME THINK THAT IF YOU HAVE FELONY CONVICTIONS WILL VOTE ONE PARTY OVER THE OTHER

>> JAMIE GRANT IS PUSHING FOR A LAW TO CLARIFY THAT FELONS MUST PAY BACK WHAT THEY OWE BEFORE THEY CAN VOTE >> IT IS A REQUIREMENT BY THE CONSTITUTION SO YOU ARGUE CONSTITUTIONALLY BUT IS THIS ARGUMENT FOR YOU PARTICULARLY DIFFICULT BECAUSE OF YOUR SKIN COLOR? >> YES IF I LOOKED AT DIFFERENTLY OR CAME FROM A DIFFERENT BACKGROUND OR HAD A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE THEY WOULD GIVE ME MORE CREDIBILITY ACHE BESIDES BEING A WHITE MAN IN AMERICA >> PRESIDENT TRUMP ONE BY 119,000

IF FELONS REGISTER THAT IS 774 NEW VOTERS FLORIDA HAS THE THIRD GREATEST NUMBER OF ELECTORAL VOTES >> HAS A LOT TO DO WITH THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION COMING UP WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT FLORIDA THIS IS A STATE WHERE THE GOVERNOR'S RACE IS DECIDED BY 30,000 VOTES 16,000 FOR CONGRESSIONAL RACE

WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE CONSTITUENCY AND YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT 14 MILLION PEOPLE THAT HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE A PART OF THE SYSTEM TO THINK ABOUT THE IMPACT THEY WILL HAVE ON PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS, OF COURSE, IT WOULD CAPTURE ANYBODY'S IMAGINATION >>> GRANT SAYS THIS IS NOT A RED VERSUS BLUE OR BLACK VERSUS WHITE I THINK IT IS ABSOLUTELY GROSS TO SUGGEST THAT BECAUSE SOMEBODY IS A CERTAIN SKIN COLOR OR SOMEBODY HAS COMMITTED A FELON THAT THEY WILL LINE WITH THE POLITICAL DEMOGRAPHIC >>> ELECTED OFFICIALS KEPT NO RECORDS OF FELONS WHO ALREADY REGISTERED TO VOTE AND HAVE NOT PAID BACK MONEY THEY OWE

FLORIDA IS A STATE WITH A HISTORY OF MESSY ELECTIONS AND HEADED TO MORE CONFUSION NOW IN NOVEMBER BACK TO YOU >>> FIVE DAYS LATER WE GOT A EMAIL THAT SAID PLEASE COME PICK UP YOUR CAMPERS >> THE LOCATIONS WERE OPEN THIS SUMMER AND PEOPLE WERE COMFORTED THAT THEIR CHILDREN WOULD BE SAFE ONE PARENT TOLD ME SHE FELT COMFORTABLE SENDING HER DAUGHTER AND THEN HER DAUGHTER WAS SENT HOME

PARENTS WERE NOTIFIED BY MASS EMAIL THAT THE CAMP WAS SHUTTING DOWN AFTER TWO CONFIRMED CASES BROKE AND IN THE SUBSEQUENT DAYS IT JUMPED TO 82 CASES THEY ARE TRYING TO FOLLOW THE PROTOCOL SET FORTH BY THE STATE GOVERNMENT , TRYING TO HELP OUR KIDS BE AS NORMAL AS POSSIBLE IT IS JUST PROVING TO NOT BE A NORMAL TIME I THINK WE NEED TO REASSESS WHAT IS GOING ON >> SOME SEPALS SLEEP AWAY CAMPS ARE STILL OPERATING

THERE ARE SUGGESTIONS FOR SAFER NEEDS OPERATIONS CHILDREN HAVE BEEN SPARED MOSTLY FOR CORONAVIRUS THE PLAN TO OPEN WAS WRENCHING FAMILIES AND CAMPS ALIKE A RECENT AMERICAN PSYCHOLOGICAL SURVEY SAID 60% OF PARENTS HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO KEEP KIDS ENGAGED

THERE ARE CONCERNS OVER THE CAMPS FOR KIDS AND ADULTS WE DON'T KNOW WHAT THIS MEANS FOR REOPENING SCHOOLS IN THE FALL >> CAMPS ARE STILL OPEN THIS MORNING THERE WAS PRE- CAMP QUARANTINE, SOCIAL DISTANCING TEMPERATURE CHECKS AND FACE COVERINGS FOR CAMPERS IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO PLAN

CAMPS IN EIGHT STATES HAVE SEEN COVERT OUTBREAKS MISSOURI IS NOT PLANNING TO SHUT DOWN ANY CAMPS PERMANENTLY COUNTIES ARE WORKING THROUGH THE SITUATION WE REACHED OUT SEVERAL TIMES AND THEY HAVE YET TO COMMENT PUBLICLY ON ANY OUTBREAKS >> AS I STATED BEFORE

ONE THING MY CHILD LOOKS FORWARD TO HIS SUMMER CAMP IF I WERE IN A UPCOMING TERM, I WOULD NOT ALLOW MY DAUGHTER TO GO WE WERE A LATER TERM, SHE WOULD BE SAD BECAUSE SHE WOULD NOT BE GOING >> THE WORKLIFE BALANCE IS A HIGH WIRE CHECK SO MANY MOTHERS SAY ANY SEMBLANCE OF THAT IS OUT THE WINDOW

>> IT IS DIFFICULT WITH THE KIDS BECAUSE I HAVE TO BE A TEACHER I NEED TO MAKE SURE THEY ARE ACTUALLY DOING WHAT THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO BE DOING >> SHE IS THE PRESIDENT OF AN AUTOMOTIVE NETWORK SHE HAS TO GET THAN HER ELDERLY FATHER >> I COULD LITERALLY WORK FROM 6:00 IN THE MORNING UNTIL 9:00 AT NIGHT

>> THE KIDS COME TO MOM FIRST WHEN THEY NEED SOMETHING >> THEY COME TO ME IT'S THE WAY MY HOUSEHOLD IS SET UP >> KIDS ARE GOING VIRTUAL THIS FALL AND THE DISRUPTION FOR WORKING PARENTS AND MOMS IS GOING TO BECOME MORE PROBABLE >> FEDERAL DATA SHOWS WOMEN ARE LEAVING THE WORKFORCE FASTER THAN MEN

THE WOMEN WORKING OR LOOKING FOR WORK DROPPED BY 2% EVEN ADJUSTING HOURS CAN BE DEVASTATING FOR EARNING POWER >> SOME WOMEN WILL REENTER THE WORKPLACE MOST WOMEN WILL MANY OF THEM WILL NEVER REACH A LEVEL IN THEIR CAREERS THEN THEY WOULD HAVE REACHED IF THEY HAD NOT LEFT THE WORKPLACE

>> JOAN WILLIAMS AT THE UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA SAYS MOTHERHOOD IS THE STRONGEST TRIGGER FOR GENDER BIAS >> MOTHERS IN MALE CAREERS WHO LEAVE THE WORKFORCE FOR A CHUNK OF TIME, OFTEN THEY NEVER RETURN TO TRADITIONALLY MALE AND HIGH- PAYING CAREERS >> THE A NEGATIVE IMPACT ON SINGLE MOTHERS IS EVEN WORSE >> THEY ARE ARE DISPROPORTIONATE NUMBERS OF NONWHITE WOMEN WHO ARE SINGLE MOTHERS ESPECIALLY AFRICAN-AMERICAN WOMEN

>> ANOTHER PROBLEMATIC PIECE OF THE PUZZLE IS OUTDATED EXPECTATIONS OF MEN AT WORK WE ARE UNDER STRONG GENDER PRESSURES TO BE AN IDEAL WORKER NOT TO DO WITH WOMEN, IT IS WITH HOW LITTLE THE GENERAL ROLE WILL CHANGE FOR MEN >> WHAT DOES THIS ALL MEAN FOR A MOM LONG TERMS ERNIE POTENTIAL HOW MUCH MONEY IS INVOLVED? >> A LOT

YOU CAN TAKE A CHUNK OF TIME OFF THIS CAN BE 20% OF YOUR LIFETIME INCOME IT IS HUGE SO WHAT IS YOUR ADVICE TO MOMS IN THE SITUATION AND BALANCING CHILDCARE AND THEIR CAREER? >> IT IS IMPORTANT IT IS MORE DIFFICULT TO FIGHT THOSE BATTLES AND SPLIT THINGS UP EQUALLY AND IT IS SOMETHING THAT YOU ARE DOING TO ENSURE YOUR CHILDREN AND THEIR ECONOMIC FUTURE

>> HELLO YOU ARE WATCHING NBC NEWS NOW LET'S KICK IT UP JOE IS GIVING US THE LATEST HEADLINES WHAT YOU HAVE FORCE TODAY? >>REPORTER: WE START IN GEORGIA

A JUDGE IS IN THE MIDDLE OF A SHOWDOWN , WE'RE PULLING BACK ON THE ECONOMY , HOT ABSOLUTELY >>> 10% OF CORONAVIRUS TESTS IN GEORGIA ARE COMING BACK NOW IVE AND ANDREW CUOMO IS JOINING THE FIGHT TRAVELING O TO GEORGIA WITH MUCH-NEEDED SUPPLIES

OUR CORRESPONDENT REPORTS FROM SAVANNA Reporter: THIS IS ONE OF SEVERAL CITIES THAT IS IN A BATTLE WITH THE GOVERNOR WE TRAVELED HER YESTERDAY WITH ANDREW CUOMO AND HE SAYS HE IS TRYING TO PREVENT THE VIRUS THAT IS SURGING HERE IN MANY SOUTHERN STATES FROM COMING BACK TO NEW YORK AT ONE POINT THE DAILY DEATH TOLL TOPPED 800 IN THE MIDDLE OF APRIL NOW THE NUMBER IN NEW YORK IS DOWN TO ABOUT EIGHT

THE POSITIVITY RATE IS AROUND 50% IN GEORGIA IN NEW YORK STILL ABOUT 1% THE GOVERNOR CAME TO BRING SUPPLIES AS WELL AS TESTING DEVICES HE HAS G DONE THIS IN OTHER STATES WITH TESTING CENTERS IN TEXAS AND HE HAS SENT MEDICATION DOWN TO FLORIDA HE PREVIOUSLY SENT TEST KITS AND SUPPLIES TO ATLANTA AND D YESTERDAY HE WITH THE MAYOR AND THE REPUBLICAN GOVERNOR, BRIAN KEMP, HAS BEEN CRITICAL OVER IT MANDATING MASKS IN THIS STATE

I ASKED THE GOVERNOR WHAT HE THOUGHT ABOUT THE FEDERAL RESPONSE TO THIS CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC AND HERE IS WHAT HE HAD TO RESAY >> HE HAS DOUBLED DOWN ON HIS ASSERTION THAT THE REASON FOR THIS E IS THE INCREASED TESTING WHAT DO YOU SAY TO THAT? IN >> WHY ARE WE SEEING INCREASED HOSPITALIZATIONS? THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH TESTING MORE PEOPLE GOING INTO HOSPITALS PEOPLE GO TO THE HOSPITAL FOR ONE REASON

BECAUSE THEY ARE SICK UNLESS THE PRESIDENT WANTS TO SAY THEY ARE GOING TO THE HOSPITAL FOR A VACATION OR THE INCREASING HOSPITALIZATIONS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH COVID, AT ONE POINT REALITY HAS TO BE DEALT WITH THIS PRESIDENT HAS REFUSED TO ACCEPT REALITY HE IS STILL IN DENIAL ABOUT THE COVID VIRUS HE IS STILL MAKING EXCUSES

YOU WILL NEVER SOLVE A PROBLEM THAT YOU ARE UNWILLING TO ADMIT THAT'S WHY THIS NATION IS SEEING THE COVID INFECTION RATE GO UP WHILE OTHER COUNTRIES ARE SEEING IT GO DOWN WE HAVE DONE ONE OF THE POOREST NE JOBS ON THE GLOBE WITH COVID OTHER COUNTRIES ARE QUARANTINING AMERICA THAT IS NOT WHERE IS SIMONE, THAT IS NOT WHAT AMERICA IS SUPPOSED TO BE ABOUT

>> HE E IS THREATENING TO ROLLBACK SOME OF THE REOPENING IN NEW YORK FOR EXAMPLE, BARS AND RESTAURANTS FAILING TO ADHERE TO THE SOCIAL DISTANCING GUIDELINES SAID HE IS TRYING TO PREVENT THE VIRUS FROM COMING BACK TO NEW YORK STATE I ASKED HIM IF IT WAS POSSIBLE TO S ENFORCE THE QUARANTINES IN 20 STATES COMING BACK FROM AMERICA HAVING TO QUARANTINE FOR TWO WEEKS

HE SAID IT'S IMPERFECT BUT AGAIN HE SAYS IT'S A POSSIBLE SOLUTION, TRYING TO GET COMPLIANCE WITH PEOPLE BEING CAREFUL AND WEARING MASKS TO PREVENT THE VIRUS FROM SURGING IN PARTS OF THE NORTHEAST NBC NEWS, SAVANNAH, GEORGIA >> IN ONE MISSOURI COUNTY THEY ARE STRIKING OUT THE COUNTY EXECUTIVE SAID THEY TYMAY BE LEFT TO BLAME FOR THE RECENT SPIKE IN CORONAVIRUS CASES JOINING US NOW ROG FROM MISSOURI, THE LATEST STOP ON HIS ROAD TO RECOVERY TRIP ACROSS AMERICA

LET'S DIG INTO THIS WHAT EVIDENCE IS THERE THAT THE YOUTH SPORTS ARE DRIVING THE OUTBREAK? HOW DO WE KNOW THEY ARE W TO BLAME ? >> ACCORDING TO THE COUNTY THERE ARE 20 CASES EVERY DAY IN CHILDREN BETWEEN THE AGES OF 10 AND 19 THAT'S WHY THEY ARE STARTING TO ROLLBACK THE REGULATIONS THEY WERE GOING TO HEOPEN UP MORE BUT BECAUSE OF THESE CASES — AND YOU TALK TO PEOPLE AND THEY SAY WE KNOW THAT SCHOOL IS NOT IN SESSION SO THE CASES HAVE TO BE FROM THE SPORTS LEAGUES WHERE THE KIDS ARE CONGREGATING AND THAT MUST BE WHERE IT IS WHEN YOU TALK TO THE EXECUTIVES IN CHARGE WILL YOU THAT IS IMPORTANT

TAKE A LOOK >> THEY ARE MAINLY CONCERNED ABOUT THE ACTIVITY SURROUNDING YOUTH SPORTS RATHER THAN THE ND GAME ITSELF WE AGREE WITH THE EXPERTS TO ALLOW KIDS TO CONTINUE TO O PRACTICE IN GROUPS OF 10 BUT WE STOP THE F ACTIVITY THAT WE WERE SEEING ASSOCIATED WITH THE SPREAD OF COVID BETWEEN KIDS AND PARENTS IN THOSE THOR ARE THE EVENTS THAT ATTRACT KRAUSE SOCIAL EVENTS AND TEAM MEETINGS SURROUNDING TEAM SPORTS >> THERE ARE A LOT E OF FRUSTRATED PARENTS WHO WANT THE KIDS TO %GO OUT AND DO THE SPORTS

THERE WAS AN ONLINE PROTEST AGAINST THAT COUNTY EXECUTIVE WITH PARENTS SAYING THAT TE% THE CASES MAY NOT BE BECAUSE OF INTRAMURAL SPORTS OBVIOUSLY, PEOPLE WANT TO GET KIDS TSOUT OF THE HOUSE SOME PARENTS SAY IT'S NOT WORTH THE RISK AND THE SAME DEBATE IS HAPPENING WHEN IT COMES TO THE SCHOOLS AS WELL >> THERE WAS A LOCAL FOOTBALL PLAYER WHO TESTED POSITIVE FOR CORONAVIRUS? Reporter: YES, Re YOU HAVE THE SCHOOLS SHUTTING DOWN AND QUARANTINING IN ONE PLACE LEAVING 15 MEMBERS OF THE FOOTBALL TEAM AND AT THE OTHER SCHOOL THEY HAVE SHUT DOWN THE CAMPUS THAT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE A SUMMERTIME SESSION THEY SHUT IT DOWN AND ER THEY ARE GOING G TO REMOTE THE BALL PRACTICE

PHYSICALLY, THE SAME IDEA THE CASES STARTED SPREADING AND IN 10 OTHER STATES AROUND THE COUNTRY THEY ARE STARTING TO ROLLBACK SOME SPORTS THAT WERE SUPPOSED TO START COINCIDING WITH THE %SCHOOL YEAR WE WERE AT MARYVILLE UNIVERSITY YESTERDAY IN THE PRESIDENT THERE SAID WHILE HE'S CONFIDENT THERE VI WILL BE SPORTS IN THE FALL THE NCAA HAS A LOT OF BARRIERS TO CROSS AS THE TESTING EXPANDS AND YOU START TO HAVE POSITIVE CASES IT MAKES IT DIFFICULT TO GET THE PLAYERS ON THE FIELD SAVANNA? >> THIS LEADS TO THE OTHER BIG DEBATE

WHAT DO WE GO ABOUT REOPENING SCHOOLS? THERE IS A BACK AND FORTH ABOUT HOW TO DO THIS IN ST LOUIS COUNTY WHAT IS THE LATEST THERE? Reporter: THE CONTROVERSY STARTED LAST WEEK THE GOVERNOR SAID THEY NEEDED TO GET WEOVER %IT AND THE KIDS NEED TO GO TO SCHOOL HE SAID EVEN IF THEY GET THE CORONAVIRUS, WHICH THEY WILL, THEY WILL %GO HOME AND RECOVER AND EVERYTHING WILL BE FINE

THE SCIENCE AND THE HISTORY OF THE VIRUS TELLS A DIFFERENT STORY AGAIN, YOU HAVE FF COUNTY ADMINISTRATORS WHO ARE SAYING I H MAY NOT GET ALONG WITH THE GOVERNOR BUT WE HAVE TO O WORK SOMETHING OUT HE IS URGING THE PARENTS TO KEEP KIDS HOME THIS IS WHAT HE SAID IN RESPONSE AT TO THE GOVERNOR'S COMMENTS >> THE GOVERNOR AND I DON'T AGREE ON EVERYTHING BUT WE HAVE TO WORK TOGETHER

WE HAVE TO WORK TOGETHER ON THESE ISSUES MY POSITION IS THAT THE VIRTUAL OPTION WOULD BE THE BEST CHOICE IF IT WERE AVAILABLE WE WILL WORK CLOSELY TO MAKE SURE THAT ANY IN- CLASSROOM OPTIONS ARE AS SAFE AS POSSIBLE FOR STUDENTS AND TEACHERS AND STAFF>> Reporter: THIS UNDERSCORES WHAT WE ARE SEEING AROUND THE COUNTRY WHICH H IS A DISAGREEMENT FROM GOVERNMENTAL OFFICIALS AT THE SENIOR LEVEL DOWN TO THE OM% COUNTY AND COUNTY BY COUNTY A LOT OF PARENTS IN THIS COUNTY ARE UPSET T BECAUSE YOU GO 30 MILES AWAY IN ILLINOIS AND THINGS ARE WIDE OPEN YOU HAVE THA DIFFERENT COUNTY TO COUNTY STATE TO STATE CAUSING A LOT OF CONFUSION, SAVANNAH

>> IT MAKES YOU WONDER THE EFFECTIVENESS IF THE NEXT COUNTY'S RULES ARE DIFFERENT ONE LAST QUESTION HOW WAS THE ROAD TRIP? Reporter: AWESOME WEEK ON 7000 MILES WITH ANOTHER WEEK TO 00 GO BIG BIRD TO FREEDOM

>> YOU ARE HAVING FUN I FOLLOWED YOU ON INSTAGRAM FOR YOU ARE THE BEST CREW EVER THANK YOU FOR YOUR REPORTING ON THE ROAD FOR US TELL THEM HELLO >> >>> A RECORD NUMBER OF PEOPLE ARE TESTING POSITIVE FOR CORONAVIRUS AND THAT SURGE IS SLOWING DOWN HOW LONG IT TAKES TO GET THE S RESULTS

OUR MEDICAL CORRESPONDENT, JOHN TORRES, JOINS US NOW WHY IS THERE SUCH A BACKLOG IN TESTING? Reporter: WE HAVE BEEN TALKING ABOUT TESTING SINCE FEBRUARY IT HASN'T GOT TO THE POINT WHERE PEOPLE CAN GET THE TESTING THEY GET TO NOW WE ARE WAITING DAYS AND WEEKS THE REASON THIS IS HAPPENING IS BECAUSE THERE IS SUCH A SURGE IN DEMAND FOR TEST

ONE OF THE REASONS IS BECAUSE OF THE HOTSPOT AREAS WE ARE TALKING ABOUT CORDA, TEXAS, IN ARIZONA AND CALIFORNIA A BACKLOG OF THE DIFFERENT OPERATORIES AND THEY ARE SENDING IT TO DIFFERENT LABS AND THAT CREATES MORE OF A BACKLOG YOU CAN IMAGINE THAT TAKING THE YO TEST IS THE EASY PART THAT YOU CAN TAKE MULTIPLE TEST OVER AN HOURS TIME BUT THE TESTS GET SENT TO A LAB THAT HAS TWO PROCESS ALL OF THAT WHICH MEANS S THEY HAVE TO HAVE THE EQUIPMENT AND VE THE REAGENTS, THE LIQUID THEY USED TO PROTEST, PROCESS THE TEST AND THE PERSONNEL THAT KNOW HOW TO DO THIS THIS TAKES A LONG TIME

EVEN THOUGH TESTING IS BETTER THAN FEBRUARY IT'S NOT AT THE POINT WHERE WE CAN TEST ESPECIALLY WITH THESE BOTTLENECK TIME PERIODS WE CIARE HAVING NOW THIS LENS TO THE QUESTION — IF WE GET THE TEST QUICKLY HOW CAN WE KEEP THIS UNDER CONTROL? HAS IS WHAT THE EXPERTS FRUSTRATED, SAVANNAH >> ABSOLUTELY HERE IN CALIFORNIA, FOR EXAMPLE, IT TAKES OVER A WEEK I CAN IMAGINE SOMEONE GETS THE TEST DONE AND DOESN'T HEAR ANYTHING FOR A WEEK AND THEY COULD CATCH AT ANY TIME UNLESS THEY ARE JUST SAYING IN THEIR HOUSE AND THEY WILL GET A NEGATIVE BACK AND THEY COULD SHOW SYMPTOMS A FEW DAYS LATER

RIGHT?>> Reporter: THAT'S THE PROBLEM ESPECIALLY WITH PEOPLE TRYING TO GO TO WORK AND WE TRIED TO GET THE KIDS BACK TO SCHOOL AND WE THESE ING TEST IT CAN TAKEUS DAYS OR WEEKS TO GET THE TEST RESULTS BACK PEOPLE ARE SAYING WHAT GOOD IS IT AT THAT POINT IF THEY'VE ALREADY BEEN IN THIS ENVIRONMENT FOR FIVE OR SIX DAYS POTENTIALLY GETTING THE CORONAVIRUS AND NOT GETTING THE TEST RESULTS >> THE WHITE HOUSE SAID THE PRESIDENT GETS TESTED MULTIPLE TIMES A DAY

HOW ACCURATE ARE THE RAPID RESULTS? Reporter: THIS IS DIFFERENT THAN THE JUST AROUND THE COUNTRY THE RAPID TEST IS A TEST THAT USES A NASAL SWAB AND THE RESULTS COME CO BACK QUICKLY IT STILL USES A SOPHISTICATED PIECE OF EQUIPMENT BUT THE CONCERN IS, SOME HAVE SHOWN THAT IT IS NOT AS ACCURATE AS T WE WOULD LIKE IN OTHER WORDS, IT GIVES FALSE NEGATIVES IT TELLS PEOPLE THEY ARE NEGATIVE WHEN IN FACT THEY ARE POSITIVE

STUDIES SHOW THAT IT IS HIGH AS 25% SO, ONE OUT OF FOUR IS MISSED IF THEY ARE TESTING MULTIPLE TIMES A DAY IFAT THE WHITE HOUSE DAY AFTER DAY, PUT A N'T LOT OF CONFIDENCE INTO THE TEST RESULTS AT THIS POINT SO, GETTING OTHER TESTS THAT ARE SENSITIVE AND SPECIFIC COULD BE HELPFUL IN THE INTERIM WHILE THEY USE THIS TEST AS AS WELL

>> DOES IT MAKE SENSE THAT THE RAPID TESTS ARE NOT READILY AVAILABLE? WIN IT'S A GOOD TEST WHEN USED APPROPRIATELY IN THE APPROPRIATE ENVIRONMENT IN A SITUATION LIKE THE WHITE HOUSE WHERE IS THE SAME PERSON TAKING THE TEST THE RATE OF SENSITIVITY AND SENSITIVITY, THE POSITIVES AND NEGATIVES CAN BE HIGH IN A PLACE GOING THROUGH THIS IN MASS NUMBERS IT IS MORE DIFFICULT TO DO T AND SO USING IT ON A MASSIVE SCALE LIKE THAT WOULD BE TOUGH BECAUSE THE ACCURACY MIGHT NOT BE THERE LIKE IT WOULD BE FOR SOME T OF THESE OTHER TESTS AND THAT IS WHY THEY ARE USING THIS TESTS WITH SUCH A BIG BACKLOG BECAUSE THEY WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY ARE ACCURATE IN LETTING PEOPLE KNOW IF THEY HAVE CORONAVIRUS OR NOT SAVANNAH? >> I HAVE A VIEWER QUESTION NOW ARE THERE DIFFERENT STRAINS OF CORONAVIRUS? HOW DOES THAT IMPACT PEOPLE? Reporter: I GET THIS QUESTION A LOT

THEY ARE REFERRING — ANYTIME A VIRUS COMES ABOUT THEY ARE CONSTANTLY MUTATING AND CHANGING VIRUSES DO THIS THE CORONAVIRUS IS NO DIFFERENT THEY FOUND THAT THE CORONAVIRUS THAT ORIGINATED IN CHINA IS A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT THAN THE CORONAVIRUS WE ARE SEEING IN EUROPE AND THE UK AND A LITTLE BIT OF DIFFERENCE LOOKS LIKE IT CAUSES THE VIRUS TO BE MORE CONTAGIOUS PEOPLE CAN CATCH IT QUICKLY BUT IT'S NOT QMORE THE LY THAN VIRUS IN CHINA

IT MIGHT BE LESS DEADLY AGAIN, IT IS A GOOD NEWS, BAD NEWS IT IS EASIER TO CATCH BUT SIIT DOESN'T CAUSES MANY COMPLICATIONS AS THE ORIGINAL ONE THIS IS NOT A % IG MUTATION IN THE SENSE THAT MOST PEOPLE THINK OF PEOPLE THINK THIS TYPE OF CHANGE, SOMETHING THAT IS A SIGNIFICANT CHANGE THAT THE VACCINATIONS WOULDN'T WORK FOR

WE ARE NOT SEEING THIS WITH CORONAVIRUS THESE ARE SMALL CHANGES CONSISTENT WITH VIRUSES WHAT THEY DO IN A NATURAL BASIS >> THANK YOU, DOCTOR JOHN I ALWAYS LOOK BETTER TALKING TO YOU YOU FOR R BREAKING IT DOWN FOR US

FOLKS WERE GETTING $600 A WEEK FROM THE UNEMPLOYMENT HEARING DISCUSSIONS THAT REPUBLICANS DON'T WANT TO KEEP IT AT THE SAME BUBBLE BECAUSE THEY FEEL LIKE IT'S AN INCENTIVE FOR PEOPLE TO NOT GO BACK TO WORK THEY ARE WILLING TO CONTINUE SOME KIND OF OF ADDITIONAL ASSISTANCE BUT WE WILL HAVE TO FIND OUT WHAT THAT NUMBER IS

>>> JOE BIDEN TODAY SLAMMED PRESIDENT TRUMP 'S RESPONSE TO THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC >> WE ARE IN A CHILDCARE EMERGENCY AND IT DIDN'T HAVE TO BE THIS WAY THAT'S WHY I'M CALLING ON THE PRESIDENT TO GET THE FACILITIES AND RESOURCES AND EQUIPMENT NEEDED TO GET THEM NOW MIKE JOINS ME FROM DELAWARE WHAT ELSE DID JOE BIDEN SAY? Reporter: IS INTERESTING

THE POINT OF THESE SPEECHES ARE SUPPOSED TO BE ABOUT JOE BIDEN PULLING OUT HIS ECONOMIC PLAN BUT IN EACH SPEECH HE HAS FOCUSED A LOT ON THE PANDEMIC AND THE RESPONSE TO THE PANDEMIC AS HE SAID EARLIER TODAY THE NUMBER ONE DUTY OF A PRESIDENT IS THE DUTY TO CARE AND HE POINTEDLY SAID THAT THE PRESIDENT HAS QUIT ON YOU HE HAS QUIT ON THE COUNTRY HE HAS BEEN SAYING THIS IN RECENT DAYS THE PRESIDENT HAS RAISED THE WHITE FLAG SURROUNDING AGAINST THE CORONAVIRUS

AS YOU'VE HEARD FROM OUR WHITE HOUSE TEAM, ADVISORS HAVE BEEN PUSHING THE PRESIDENT TO RESERVE THE CORONAVIRUS BRIEFINGS IT HAS CREATED A LITTLE BIT OF A LEADERSHIP VACUUM THAT THE BIDEN CAMPAIGN HAS BEEN HAPPY TO FILL WE'VE ALSO SEEN AN ESCALATION IN THE AIR WARS USING THE PANDEMIC THEIR TWO NEW ADS A $15 MILLION CAMPAIGN THIS WEEK ALONE AND IT FOCUSES A LOT ON THE PANDEMIC

WANTS YOU SEE A LOT OF JOE BIDEN WEARING A MASK AND LAYING OUT THE SACRIFICES THE COUNTRY NEEDS TO MAKE TO DEFEAT THE PANDEMIC AND THE OTHER ADD HAS THE FORMER VICE PRESIDENT SAYING HE OVERSAW THE ECONOMIC COVERAGE PLAN EARLY ON AND OVERSAW THE ADMINISTRATION'S RESPOND TO THE EBOLA CRISIS IN 2014 NOTHING NEAR WHAT WE SEEN IN THIS PANDEMIC BUT MAKING THE POINT OF SAYING THAT THE VICE PRESIDENT HAS DONE THIS BEFORE AND HE CAN DO IT AGAIN, SAVANNA >> A LOT FEELS DIFFERENT IN 2020 THAN ANY OTHER ELECTION BUT THE PRESENCE OF THE ADS MAY NOT BE DIFFERENT AS WE SEE THIS RAMP UP HE ALSO TALKED ABOUT HIS ECONOMIC PLAN TELL US WHAT HE SAID TODAY

>> Reporter: THIS ECONOMIC PLAN, WE HEARD THIS TWO WEEKS AGO ABOUT MANUFACTURING LAST WEEK ABOUT A GREEN ENERGY PLAN THIS WEEK IS ALL ABOUT WHAT THE BIDEN CAMPAIGN CALLS A CAREGIVING CRISIS THEY THINK IT IS AN SALIENT ISSUE A LOT OF FAMILIES HAVE HAD TO MAKE DECISIONS ESPECIALLY AS WE THINK ABOUT A LOT OF PEOPLE GOING BACK TO SCHOOL AND WHETHER OR NOT THE CHILDREN WILL GO BACK TO SCHOOL

DECISIONS ABOUT WHETHER THEY CAN CARE FOR THEIR ELDERLY PARENTS AND HAVE UNIVERSAL PRE-K WHAT HIS PLAN TODAY WOULD DO AND WHAT THEY WOULD DO IN TERMS OF TAX CREDITS AND IN TERMS OF TEXT, DIRECT INVESTMENTS INCLUDING RAISING THE PAY FOR CAREGIVERS TO TRY TO ATTRACT MORE PEOPLE GIVING MORE MONEY TO THE STATES TO ELIMINATE WHAT THE BIDEN CAMPAIGN SAYS IS A WAITING LIST FOR COMMUNITY CARE FACILITIES FOR THE ELDERLY AND DISABLED WAS ALSO INCLUDED TAX CREDIT FOR BUSINESSES THIS IS NOT SOMETHING THAT A LOT OF DEMOCRATS TALK ABOUT BUT THAT IS A BIPARTISAN PROPOSAL THAT BIDEN IS ADOPTING TO GIVE TAX CREDIT TO BUSINESSES TO CREATE MORE CAREGIVING SPACES TO ALLOW MORE BUSINESSES TO HAVE CHILDCARE FOR THEIR WORKERS AS A WAY TO HELP A LOT OF FAMILIES MAKE TOUGH DECISIONS EASIER

SAVANNA? >>> LET'S TURN NOW TO BIDEN'S VP PICK BIDEN SAYING THERE ARE FOUR BLACK WOMEN ON THE SHORT LIST WHO IS HE REFERRING TO? >> I WISH I COULD TELL YOU THERE'S A LOT OF NEWS ABOUT THE VICE PRESIDENTIAL SEARCH PROCESS IT IS INTERESTING BECAUSE THE CAMPAIGN IS ALWAYS TIGHTLIPPED ABOUT THE PROCESS

THIS IS THE SECOND TIME IN A MONTH WHERE BIDEN IS MADE A LOT OF NEWS AND GIVING US NEW INFORMATION ABOUT WHERE THE PROCESS STANDS HE SAID THERE WERE FOUR BLACK WOMEN ON HIS SHORT LIST A CAMPAIGN ADVISOR SAID TO ME THAT IT WAS NOT A DEFINITIVE STATEMENT AND THEY ARE STILL GOING THROUGH THE VETTING PROCESS IF IT IS JUST FOUR THAT WILL ELIMINATE SOME NAMES WE'VE HAD ON THE LIST FOR QUITE A WHILE POTENTIALLY STACY ABRAMS

SUSAN RICE, THE FORMER NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOR AND MAYOR BOTTOMS FROM ATLANTA AND THE CONGRESSWOMAN FROM CALIFORNIA OF COURSE, THE WOMAN WHO A LOT OF PEOPLE SEE AS THE FAVORITE POTENTIALLY AND THAT IS, OF COURSE, KAMALA HARRIS WE ALSO LEARNED IS WHERE THE PROCESS STANDS THE NON-BIDEN PART OF THE BP SEARCH PROCESS IS NEARING THE END HE SAID HE WILL SOON HAVE THESE CONDITIONS FROM THE CERTS SEARCH COMMITTEE AND THE NEXT STEP IS TO HAVE IN PERSON MEETINGS WITH ALL THESE POTENTIAL VPS

THE PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP IS CRITICAL AND EVEN IN A PANDEMIC WHERE HE HAS NOT BEEN INTERACTING HE WILL WANT THE ONE-ON-ONE TIME WITH THE PERSON HE EXPECTS TO WORK WITH IN THE WHITE HOUSE >>> IF ANYONE IS GOING TO BREAK IT DOWN, OF COURSE IT'S YOU OVER THE OTHER HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE INTERVIEW LAST NIGHT? >> WHAT WE SAW LAST NIGHT WAS A STORY THAT AGAIN TO MAKE USE FRIDAY NIGHT WHEN HE TALKED ABOUT THE FACT THAT HE IS GETTING BRIEFINGS ABOUT FOREIGN INTERFERENCE IN THE CAMPAIGN JUST BEFORE THE INTERVIEW HE PUT OUT A STRONG STATEMENT SAYING HE WAS PUTTING THE KREMMLING ON NOTICE ABOUT ANY POTENTIAL FLORIDA INTERFERENCE IN THE ELECTION AND THE NATIONAL SECURITY TEAMS HAVE BEEN SAYING THIS HAPPENED IN 2016 LET'S LISTEN TO WHAT HE SAID ABOUT DIRECTLY SPEAKING TO RUSSIA ON THIS

>> I CAN'T DO ANYTHING ABOUT WHAT IS GOING ON IN RUSSIA EXCEPT RESPOND PUTIN KNOWS I MEAN WHAT I SAY THIS IS A VIOLATION OF OUR SOVEREIGNTY IF, IN FACT, IT OCCURS, THERE WILL BE RESPONSE IN KIND IT WILL NOT GO UNSTATED, UNNOTICED, OR UNREPORTED

>> THE STATEMENT HE RELEASED, IT SAID THAT IF RUSSIA TRIES TO INTERFERE WITH THE ELECTION IS CONSIDERING A RANGE OF RESPONSES, ONE OF THEM IS THE EXPOSURE OF CORRUPTION I WANTED TO CLARIFY ONE THING WHEN BIDEN SAID HE IS RECEIVING BRIEFINGS THE CAMPAIGN IS CLARIFYING THAT IS NOT NECESSARILY RECEIVING INTELLIGENCE BRIEFINGS THAT ARE PRESUMPTIVE NOMINEE WOULD BE GETTING CLOSER TO THE CONVENTION BUT WHAT HAS HAPPENED IS THE OFFICE OF THE DIRECTOR OF NATIONAL INTELLIGENCE HAS BEEN BRIEFING EVERYONE THEY KNOW AND BIDEN HAS BEEN GETTING BRIEFINGS FROM HIS OWN TEAM OF EXPERTS ABOUT WHAT THE INFORMATION IS THEY ARE SHARING WITH THEM >>> THANKS SO MUCH, MIKE, AS ALWAYS >>> PRESIDENT TRUMP IS SHIFTING HIS STRATEGY AND REVIVING THE CORONAVIRUS TASK FORCE RETHINKS TODAY, FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE APRIL

WITH LESS THAN FOUR MONTHS AGO UNTIL ELECTION DAY HIS TO GET A BOOST FROM NEW EXECUTIVE ORDERS JOINING ME FROM THE WHITE HOUSE, CAROL, LET'S TALK ABOUT THIS THE PRESIDENT SIGNED A MEMORANDUM TODAY CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT THAT? >> SURE HE SIGNED A MEMORANDUM THAT SAID UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS CANNOT BE INCLUDED AS PART OF THE 2020 CENSUS

THE TITLE IS THE MEMORANDUM OF ENSURING AMERICAN CITIZENS RECEIVE PROPER RECIPE, REPRESENTATION THE WHITE HOUSE SAYS THAT GIVING CONGRESSIONAL REPRESENTATION TO UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS WOULD BE A INVASION OF OUR DEMOCRATIC PRINCIPLES THIS IS CONTROVERSIAL AND WE'VE SEEN STATEMENTS COMING OUT ACLU SAID THEY WILL SEE HIM IN COURT AND THIS WILL BE LEGALLY CHALLENGED IT IS PART OF A BROADER EFFORT BY THE WHITE HOUSE TO ESSENTIALLY MAKE THE PRESIDENT LOOK COLLECTIVE INSTEAD OF REACTIVE AND OFFENSIVE

HE WILL FIGHT A NUMBER OF EXECUTIVE ORDERS IN THE COMING WEEKS IN THE WHITE HOUSE EXPECTS THAT THEY WILL BE CHALLENGED IN COURT THIS IS LARGELY AN ELECTION YEAR PLAY FOR THE PRESIDENT AND EMIGRATION IS OBVIOUSLY SOMETHING THAT PLAYS WELL WITH HIS BASE WE WILL SEE MORE ON IMMIGRATION AS WELL AS HEALTHCARE ACCORDING TO THE PRESIDENT >>> LET'S SWITCH TO THE BRIEFINGS I WILL PLAY A CLIP FROM THE LAST TIME HE PARTICIPATED BACK IN APRIL

LET'S LISTEN >> I SEE THIS DISINFECTANT COULD KNOCK IT OUT IN ONE MINUTE IS THERE A WAY WE CAN DO SOMETHING LIKE THAT BY INJECTION INSIDE OR WITH THE CLEANING? >> THAT MOMENT CAUSED A LOT OF CHATTER AND THE PANDEMIC HAS CHANGED DRAMATICALLY SINCE THAT APRIL BRIEFING WHAT KIND OF SHIFT CAN WE EXPECT IN MESSAGING TODAY? >>REPORTER: THAT IS NOT THE KIND OF BRIEFING HE HAS WHEN HE STEPS TO THE PODIUM IN THE WHITE HOUSE THEY WANT HIM TO FOCUS NARROWLY ON CORONAVIRUS AND THE RESPONSE TO THE CORONAVIRUS

ESSENTIALLY HIS AIDES SAY THEY FEEL THEY'VE LOST CONTROL OF THIS NARRATIVE AND AMERICANS DON'T KNOW WHAT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IS DOING AND THEY WANT THE PRESIDENT TO BE OUT THERE LOOKING AT THIS YOU ARE LIKELY TO HEAR HIM TALK ABOUT THINGS LIKE VACCINES AND THERAPEUTICS AND OTHER THINGS LIKE SUPPLIES GOING TO VARIOUS STATES AND EVERYTHING HE IS DOING ON THE PANDEMIC THAT'S HOW I HOPE HE WILL HANDLE THE BRIEFING WE TALKED TO CITY OFFICIALS WHO SAY IT'S LIKELY TO BE OR THEY HOPE IT WILL BE SHORTER AND WHAT WE'VE SEEN BEFORE AND THEY COULD LOOK A LITTLE DIFFERENT THAN THE PAST BECAUSE WE ARE TOLD THAT THE MEMBER, THE MEMBERS OF THE TASK FORCE WILL NOT BE THERE THIS WILL BE THE PRESIDENT ALONE AT THE PODIUM TALKING ABOUT THE PANDEMIC

>> YES, WE HEARD THAT DR FAUCI DIDN'T KNOW THE BRIEFINGS WERE COMING BACK LET'S TALK ABOUT THE MASKS MANY CONTINUE TO SAY IT IS A DECISION FOR THE GOVERNORS, THE PRESIDENT TWEETED AN IMAGE OF HIMSELF WEARING A FACE MASK CALLING THIS PATRIOTIC HOW DO THEY EXPLAIN HIS PREVIOUS RELUCTANCE TO WEAR ONE? >> YES, HE CALLED WEARING A MASK PATRIOTIC AND A FEW HOURS LATER HE WAS AT HIS HOTEL IN WASHINGTON DC AND DIDN'T WEAR A MASK

THIS IS MIXED MESSAGING FROM THE WHITE HOUSE WHICH IS WHAT WE'VE SEEN SINCE THE START OF THE PANDEMIC KALEIGH McENANY WAS ASKED ABOUT THIS AND LET'S LISTEN TO WHAT SHE HAD TO SAY >> >>REPORTER: WHY THE MIXED MESSAGING ON THIS CRITICAL HEALTH ISSUE? >> HE HAS ALWAYS BEEN CONSISTENT THAT MASKS ARE RECOMMENDED BUT NOT REQUIRED>> Reporter: HE HASN'T WORN A MASK >> Reporter: THE PRESS SECRETARY ALSO SAID HE IS TESTED MULTIPLE TIMES A DAY WHICH IS NEWS TO THOSE OF US THAT THOUGHT HE WAS JUST TESTED ONCE A DAY WHICH IS ONE OF THE REASONS THE WHITE HOUSE HAS GIVEN TO WHY HE DOESN'T NEED TO WEAR A MASK

AS YOU KNOW, MASKS PROTECT OTHERS FROM YOU IF YOU WERE A SYMPTOMATIC SPREADING THE VIRUS THE ARGUMENT IS THAT HE DOESN'T NEED TO WEAR ONE I EXPECT HE WILL BE ASKED ABOUT THIS AT THE BRIEFING LATER TODAY AND YESTERDAY HE SENT A MIXED MESSAGE >>> THANK YOU WE WILL BE WATCHING FOR THE BRIEFING LATER

WHAT DO WE KNOW SO FAR? >> Reporter: IT IS KIND OF A STRANGE TWIST IT IS TWO JUDGES NOW THAT HAVE RECUSED THEMSELVES FROM THIS CASE WE JUST FOUND THAT OUT IN THE PAST FEW MINUTES THE FIRST JUDGE CAME DOWN AS THE ARGUMENTS WERE GETTING READY TO START IT WAS ONE AND HALF HOURS BEFORE THE ARGUMENTS WOULD START

THAT WAS BECAUSE THE JUDGE DIDN'T WANT TO HAVE ANY ILLUSIONS OR ANYTHING THAT LOOKED IMPROPER WITH THE CASE THE SECOND JUDGE RECUSED HIMSELF AS WELL, BECAUSE THEY WERE THE INSPECTOR GENERAL UNDER GOVERNOR KEMP WHEN HE SERVED AS SECRETARY STATE SO, THE JUDGE, OR THE CASE RATHER IS ON ITS THIRD JUDGE IT COMES BACK TO THE BACK-AND- FORTH THAT WE ARE SEEING IN GEORGIA BETWEEN THE REPUBLICAN GOVERNOR OF THE STATE AND THE DEMOCRATIC MAYOR OF ATLANTA, OVER WHETHER OR NOT PEOPLE SHOULD BE REQUIRED TO WEAR MASKS IN ATLANTA SHE SAID, YES AND BECAUSE THE NUMBERS ARE GOING IN THE WRONG DIRECTION, AND BECAUSE HEALTH EXPERTS HAVE SAID MASKS CAN HELP SLOW THE SPREAD OF COVID 19, SHE IS GOING TO REQUIRE THAT

THE GOVERNOR SAID THAT WHILE HE BELIEVES MASKS ARE NECESSARY AND HE ENCOURAGES PEOPLE TO WEAR THEM, HE BELIEVES A MANDATE GOES A STEP TOO FAR THE OTHER THING HE SAID ABOUT THIS IS THAT, HE IS TRYING TO BLOCK THE CITY FROM ENFORCING ANY SORT OF ORDERS THAT ARE MORE OR LESS RESTRICTIVE THAN WHAT HE HAS PUT IN PLACE BECAUSE, HE WANTS UNIFORMITY ACROSS THE STATES POLICIES >> SO, WHAT HAPPENS NEXT IN THIS CASE? WHERE DOES IT GO FROM HERE?

HE SAID HE HASN'T MANDATED MASKS HE SAID HE IS NOT FOR THAT, BUT HE SAID THINGS LIKE CAPPING GROUPS OF PEOPLE GATHERING AT 50 IN PUBLIC PLACES AND MANDATING SOCIAL DISTANCING AND URGING PEOPLE TO WASH HANDS HE BELIEVES THAT WILL TURN THE NUMBERS AROUND AND GET THEM BACK TO WHAT WE SAW EARLIER THIS YEAR AGAIN, WITNESSING LOCAL LEADERS AROUND THE STATE OF GEORGIA WHO SAY THEY HAVE TO GO A STEP FURTHER THAT IS WHY YOU ARE SEEING NOT JUST ATLANTA, BUT OTHER LOCAL LEADERS MANDATING MASKS AS WELL

THE GOVERNOR CAME HERE BRINGING SUPPLIES AND ADVICE HE HAS DONE IT IN SEVERAL OTHER SOUTHERN STATES TO HELP WITH TESTING CENTERS IN TEXAS HE HAS ALSO SENT MEDICATION DOWN TO FLORIDA HE PREVIOUSLY SENT TEST KITS AND SUPPLIES TO ATLANTA YESTERDAY, HE MET WITH THE MAYOR OF SAVANNAH WHO HAS SHARPLY BEEN CRITICAL OF THE REPUBLICAN GOVERNOR, BRIAN A A% KEMP OVER MANDATING MASKS IN THIS STATE

I ALSO ASKED THE GOVERNOR ABOUT WHAT HE THOUGHT ABOUT THE FEDERAL RESPONSE RO TO THIS CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC HERE IS SOME OF WHAT HE HAD TO SAY >> PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS DOUBLED DOWN ON HIS OPINION AND ASSERTION THAT IS THE REASON WE ARE SEEING THE SKY ROTTING NUMBER OF CASES ACROSS THE COUNTRY WHY ARE WE HYNG SEEING INCREASES IN HOSPITALIZATIONS? THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH TESTING

MORE PEOPLE ARE GOING INTOTO SP HOSPITALS PEOPLE GO TO HOSPITALS FOR ONE REASON, BECAUSE THEY ARE SICK UNLESS THE PRESIDENT WANTS TO SAY THEY ARE GOING TO HOSPITALS FOR A VACATION, OR THE INCREASING HOSPITALIZATIONS HAS NOTHING TO WITH COVID AT ONE POINT, REALITY HAS TO BE DEALT WITH THIS PRESIDENT HAS REFUSED TO ACCEPT REALITY

HE IS STILL IN DENIAL ABOUT THE COVID VIRUS AND, HE IS STILL MAKING EXCUSES YOU WILL NEVER SOLVE A PROBLEM IN LIFE IF YOU ARE UNWILLING TO ADMIT IT THAT IS WHY THIS NATION ATIS SAYING THE COVID INFECTION RATE GO UP, WHILE OTHER COUNTRIES ARE SEEING IT GO DOWN WE HAVE DONE ONE OF THE POOREST JOBS ON VETHE GLOBE WITH COVID

OTHER COUNTRIES ARE NOW QUARANTINING AMERICA IS NOT WHAT AMERICA IS SUPPOSED TO BE ABOUT >> Reporter: GOVERNOR CUOMO IS THREATENING TO ROLL BACK SOME OF THE NO %NEW G IN YORK, FOR EXAMPLE IN BARS AND RESTAURANTS IF THEY FAIL TO ADHERE TO SOCIAL DISTANCING GUIDELINES AGAIN, HE SAID HE IS TRYING TO PREVENT THE VIRUS FROM COMING BACK INTO NEW YORK STATE I ASKED HIM WHETHER IT WAS IN POSSIBLE TO ENFORCE A QUARANTINE FOR TRAVELERS FROM OTHER STATES COMING BACK TO NEW YORK

S HE SAID, IT IS AN IMPERFECT QUARANTINE, BUT AGAIN, HE SAID IT IS A POSSIBLE SOLUTION IN TRYING TO GET COMPLIANCE FOR PEOPLE TO BE CAREFUL AND WEARING MASKS TO PREVENT THE VIRUS FROM SURGING IN PARTS OF THE NORTHEAST >>> YOUTH SPORTS AND ONE MISSOURI SS COUNTY ARE STRIKING OUT THE COUNTY EXECUTIVE SAID THEY MAY BE WHAT IS TO BLAME FOR A RECENT SPIKE IN CORONAVIRUS CASES OUR CORRESPONDENT US FROM FENTON, MISSOURI, THE LATEST STOP ON HIS ROAD TO RECOVERY TRIP ACROSS P AMERICA SERIES LET'S DIG INTO THIS

WHAT EVIDENCE IS THERE THAT THESE YOUTH SPORTS ARE DRIVING THIS OUTBREAK? HOW DO WE KNOW THEY ARE TO BLAME? >> Reporter: ACCORDING TO H H HO COUNTY, THERE ARE SOME 20 CASES EVERY DAY IN CHILDREN BETWEEN THE AGESES OF 10 AND 19 YEARS OLD THAT IS WHY WE UNDERSTAND THEY ARE STARTING TO ROLLBACK THESE REGULATIONS THEY WERE GOING TO OPEN UP MORE SPORTS, BUT BECAUSE OF THOSE CASES, AND WE KNOW THE SCHOOLS ARE NOT STATION SESSION, SO THESE CASES HAVE E TO BE FROM THESE SPORTS LEAGUES WHEN YOU TALK TO THE EXECUTIVES IN CHARGE, THEY WILL TELL YOU IT IS WHAT IS HAPPENING OFF THE FIELD AS WELL AS ON THE FIELD TAKE A LOOK

>> THEY ARE MAINLY CONCERNED ABOUT THE ACTIVITIES THAT SURROUND YOU SPORTS, RATHER THAN THE GAME ITSELF SO, ERWE AGREED TO OUR TASK FORCE AND EXPERTS TO ALLOW KIDS TO CONTINUE TO PRACTICE IN GROUPS OF 10 BUT, WE STOPPED THE ACTIVITIES WE WERE SEEING THAT WERE ASSOCIATED WITH THE SPREAD OF COVID EITHER BETWEEN KIDS %AND PARENTS, AND THOSE ARE GENERALLY EVENTS THAT TATTRACT CROWDS, SOCIAL EVENTS AND TEAM MEETINGS AROUND TEAM SPORTS >> Reporter: THERE ARE A LOT OF VERY FRUSTRATED PARENTS WHO WANT THEIR KIDS TO GO OUT AND DO THE SPORTS THERE WAS AN ACTUAL ONLINE E PROTEST AGAINST THAT COUNTY EXECUTIVE, PARENT SAYING THE CASES MAY NOT BE BECAUSE OF HIS AM INTRAMURAL SPORTS

OBVIOUSLY PEOPLE WANT TO GET THE KIDSUT OF THE USSE HE TALKED TO SOME PARENTS AND THEY SAID IT IS NOT WORTH THE RISK THE SAME DEBATE IS HAPPENING WHEN IT COMES TO THE SCHOOLS, AS WELL >> AND, I UNDERSTAND THERE WAS A LOCAL HIGH SCHOOL PLAYER WHO TESTED POSITIVE FOR CORONAVIRUS WHAT HAPPENED AFTER THAT? >> Reporter: SIMILAR STORY THERE

YOU HAD A SOFT START OF THE LEAGUE THE SCHOOLS BASICALLY SHUT DOWN AND QUARANTINE, AT LEAST 50 MEMBERS OF THE FOOTBALL TEAM THEY SHUT DOWN THE CAMPUS AND IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE A SUMMERTIME SESSION THEY SHUT IT DOWN AND THEY ARE GOING TO REMOTE FOOTBALL PRACTICING THE E SAME IDEA, THE CASES STARTED TO SPREAD

WE ARE SEEING THIS IN 10 OTHER STATES AROUND THE COUNTRY WHERE THEY ARE STARTING TO ROLLBACK SOME OF THESE SPORTS THAT WERE SUPPOSED TO START, COINCIDING WITH THE SCHOOL YEAR IT WAS ALL THE WAY UP TO %TITITHE NCAA THE PRESIDENT AT MARYSVILLE UNIVERSITY SAID HE WAS ENCONFIDENT THAT FOOTBALL WILL START IN W THE FALL AS THE TESTING EXPENSE AND YOU START HAVING POSITIVE CASES, IT MAKES IT MORE DIFFICULT TO ACTUALLY GET PLAYERS ON E RRTHE FIELD >> ABSOLUTELY

WE HAVE THIS OTHER BIG DEBATE GOING ON ACROSS THE COUNTRY, WHAT DO WE DO ABOUT REOPENING SCHOOLS, NEVERMIND SCJUST SPORTS THERE IS A BACK AND FORTH AND HOW TO DO IT IN SOUTH ST LOUIS COUNTY WHAT IS THE DEBATE THERE? >> Reporter: THE CONTROVERSY REALLY STARTED LATE LAST WEEK WHEN THE GOVERNOR SAID, THEY JUST NEEDED TO GET OVER IT THE KIDS NEED TO GO TO SCHOOL, EVEN IF THEY GET THE CORONAVIRUS, WHICH THEY WILL

THEY WILL GO HOME AND RECOVER AND EVERYTHING WILL %%BE FINE OBVIOUSLY, THE SCIENCE AND HISTORY OF THIS VIRUS TELLS A VERY DIFFERENT STORY YOU HAVE COUNTY ADMINISTRATORS, LIKE SAN PEDRO ARE SAYING, I MAY NOT GET ALONG WITH THE L GOVERNOR, BUT WE HAVE TO WORK SOMETHING OUT HE RASAMAIS URGING PARENTS TO KEEP KIDS HOME

HERE IS WHAT HE SAID DIRECTLY IN RESPONSE TO THE GOVERNOR'S COMMENTS >> THE GOVERNOR AND I DON'T AGREE ON EVERY THING, BUT WE HAVE TO WORK TOGETHER HE IS THE GOVERNOR OF MISSOURI AND I AM THE E SUPERVISOR ST LOUIS COUNTY MY POSITION IS THAT THE VIRTUAL OPTION WOULD BE A BEST CHOICE IF IT WERE AVAILABLE

WE ARE GOING TO WORK VERY CLOSELY TO MAKE CH SURE ANY AND CLASSROOM OPTIONS ARE AS SAFE AS POSSIBLE FOR STUDENTS, TEACHERS AND STAFF >> Reporter: ALL OF THIS, OF COURSE UNDERSCORES WHAT WE ARE SEEING ACROSS THE COUNTRY WHICH IS THE DISAGREEMENT FROM GOVERNMENTAL OFFICIALS AT A SENIOR LEVEL, ALL THE WAY DOWN ND THE COUNTY AND COUNTY BY COUNTY, AND A LOT OF PARENTS IN THIS COUNTY ARE UPSET WHEN YOU GO 30 MILES TO ILLINOIS, THINGS ARE WIDE-OPENOF IT IS DIFFERENT FROM COUNTY TO COUNTY AND STATE TO STATE WHICH CAUSES A LOT OF CONFUSION

>> ABSOLUTELY IT MAKES ME WONDER THE EFFECTIVENESS OF IT IF YOU COULD JUST DRIVE TO THE NEXT DAY OR COUNTY OVER AND THE RULES ARE DIFFERENT LAST QUESTION, HOW IS THE ROAD TRIP? >> Reporter: IT IS AWESOME IT IS REALLY GOOD WE HAVE GONE 7000 MILES AND WE HAVE ANOTHER WEEK TO GO

BIG BIRD TO FREEDOM >> YOU LOOK LIKE YOU HAVE BEEN HAVING FUN I FOLLOW YOU ON HISTOGRAM YOU HAVE THE BEST CREW EVER ED YOU HAVE A GREAT PRODUCER

GOOD FOR YOU TELL THEM ALL HIGH >>> US IS SEEING A RECORD NUMBER OF PEOPLE TESTING POSITIVE FOR CORONAVIRUS

THAT SURGE IN CASES IS NOW SLOWING DOWN HOW LONG OSI IT TAKES GET RESULTS NBC NEWS MEDICAL CORRESPONDENT, DOCTOR DON TORRES JOINS %US NOW WHY IS THERE SUCH TA BACKLOG IN TESTING? >> THIS IS VERY FESTERING, BECAUSE WE HAVE BEEN TALKING ABOUT TESTING SINCE FEBRUARY AND THE TESTING JUST HASN'T GOT TO THE POINT YET THE PEOPLE CAN GET THE TEST THEY NEED TO GET WITHOUT THIS LONG WAIT POARE SEEING WAIT FOR DAYS AND PERHAPS WEEKS TO GET RESULTS THE REASON THIS IS HAPPENING IS BECAUSE THERE IS SUCH A SURGE OF DEMAND FOR TESTS RIGHT NOW

ONE OF THE MAIN REASONS IS BECAUSE OF THE HOT SPOT AREAS WE ARE TALKING ABOUT, AR RDRDFLORID TEXAS, ARIZONA AND CALIFORNIA THERE IS A BACKLOG AT DIFFERENT LABORATORIES THEY ARE TRYING TO SEND THEM OUT TO OTHER LABS AND THAT CREATES MORE OF ATREA BACKLOG YOU CAN IMAGINE TAKING THE TEST IS THE EASY PART BUT, ALL OF THOSE TESTS GET SENT IN TO A LAB AND THEY HAVE TO TRY TO PROCESS ALL OF THAT

WHICH MEANS THEY HAVE TO HAVE THE EQUIPMENT S ALAND THE AGENTS, WHICH ARE THE LIQUIDS THEY USED TO PROCESS THE TESTS, AND THE PERSONNEL TO DO IT WRAPPING THAT UP TAKES A LONG TIME EVEN THOUGH TESTING IS BETTER THAN IT S STIN FEBRUARY, IT IS STILL NOT TO THE POINT WE CAN TEST, ESPECIALLY FROM THIS BOTTLENECK TIME PERIODS LIKE WE ARE HAVING NOW THAT LEND THE QUESTION OF, IF WE CAN GET THEM QUICKLY, HOW GOOD ARE THEY AT KEEPING THE CORONAVIRUS UNDER CONTROL? THAT IS WHAT HAVE A LOT OF EXPERTS FRUSTRATED >> ABSOLUTELY I JUST KNOW THAT HERE IN CALIFORNIA, FOR EXAMPLE IT IS TAKING OVER ONE WEEK I CAN IMAGINE THAT SOMEONE GETS A TEST DONE AND THEY DON'T HERE FOR A %WEEK THEY COULD CATCH IT ANYTIME AND THAT WE, UNLESS THEY ARE JUST STAYING IN THEIR HOUSE THEY COULD EVEN END UP SHOWING SYMPTOMS A FEW DAYS LATER, RIGHT? >> THAT IS EXACTLY THE PROBLEM

ESPECIALLY IF PEOPLE ARE TRYING TO GO TO WORK WHEN WE START GETTING KIDS BACK TO SCHOOL TEACHERS BACK IN THE SCHOOL ENVIRONMENT, IT MAY TAKE DAYS OR WEEKS TO GET RESULTS BACK, A LOT OF EXPERTS ARE SAYING, WHAT GOOD IS IT AT TOTHG K THAT POINT, IF THEY HAVE ALREADY BEEN IN THE ENVIRONMENT FOR 5-6 DAYS WHERE THEY HAVE BEEN POSSIBLY TRANSMITTING THE DISEASE? >> NOW, THE WHITE HOUSE SAID THE PRESIDENT GETS TESTED MULTIPLE TIMES A DAY USING THE ABBOTT RAPID TEST HOW ACCURATE ARE THOSE RAPID TH RESULTS? >> THE TEST HE IS USING IS DIFFERENT THAN MOST OF THE TESTS BEING USED AROUND THE COUNTRY THIS RAPID TEST IS A 15 MINUTE TEST AND USES AN TE NASAL SWAB AND RESULTS COME BACK WEEKLY IT STILL USES A SOPHISTICATED PIECE OF EQUIPMENT

THE CONCERN IS THAT N ME SOME TES HAVE SHOWN IT IS NOT AS ACCURATE AS WE WOULD LIKE IS GIVING FALSE NEGATIVES IT IS TELLING PEOPLE THEY ARE NEGATIVE, WHEN IN FACT THEY ARE POSITIVE SOME TESTS SHOW AS HIGH A RATE IS 25% ONE OUT OF FOUR, IT IS MISSING

IF THEY ARE TESTING MULTIPLE TIMES A DAY OR DAY AFTER DAY, YOU CAN'T PUT A LOT OF CONFIDENCE INTO THE RESULTS E AT THIS POINT IN TIME EATING MORE TESTS THAT ARE MORE SENSITIVE AND SPECIFIC CAN BE MORE HELPFUL IN THE INTERIM >> SO, WHAT IS THAT CONCERN? DOES IT MAKE % SENSE THESE RAPID TESTS ARE NOT READILY AVAILABLE TO THE PUBLIC? >> THE TEST IS A GOOD TEST IF IT IS BEING USED APPROPRIATELY IN A E SITUATION LIKE THE WHITE HOUSE, WITH THE SAME PERSON TAKING THE TEST BY PEOPLE WHO ARE TRULY TRAINED, THE RATE SENSITIVITY AND SPECIFICITY, THE POSITIVES AND NEGATIVES CAN BE VERY HIGH

IN A PLACE WHERE THEY ARE GOING THROUGH ENOUGH NUMBERS, IT IS MORE DIFFICULT TO DO THAT USING IT ON A MASSIVE SCALE WOULD BE TOUGHER, BECAUSE THAT ACCURACY MIGHT NOT BE THERE, LIKE IT WOULD BE FOR SOME OTHER TESTS THAT IS WHY THEY ARE RANOUSING THESE TESTS THAT HAVE SUCH A BIG BACKLOG THEY WANT TO MAKE SURE THEY ARE VERY ACCURATE IN LETTING PEOPLE KNOW YES YOU HAVE IT, OR KNOW CAT YOU DON'T

>> ALL RIGHT, I HAVE A VIEWER QUESTION FOR YOU ARE THE DIFFERENT OF AINS CORONAVIRUS, AND HOW DOES THAT S? IMPACT PEOPLE? >> I GET THIS QUESTION A LOT THEY ARE REFERRING TO A VIRUS, ANY KIND OF VIRUS CONSTANTLY CHANGES THAT IS WHAT VIRUSES DO THE CORONAVIRUS IS NO DIFFERENT

WHAT THEY HAVE FOUND IS THAT CORONAVIRUS THAT ORIGINATED IN CHINA IS A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT THAN THE CORONAVIRUS WE THTHARE SEEING I EUROPE AND THE UK THAT LITTLE BIT OF DIFFERENCE EN LOOKS LIKE IT IS CAUSING THE VIRUS TO BE MORE CONTAGIOUS SO, PEOPLE CAN CATCH IT QUICKER, BUT IT IS NOT MORE DEADLY THAN THE VIRUS WE SAW IN CHINA SO, IT IS S GOOD NEWS / BAD NEWS IT IS EASIER TO CATCH, BUT DOESN'T CAUSE QUITE AS MANY COMPLICATIONS OR DEATH AS THE ORIGINAL

THIS IS NOT A MUTATION IN THE SENSE OF MUTATION MOST PEOPLE THINK OF WHEN PEOPLE THINK IN OF THIS KIND OF CHANGE IN MUTATION THEY A INK IT IS HUGE, SIGNIFICANT CHANGE THAT CURRENT TECHNIQUES, TREATMENTS OR VACCINATIONS WOULDN'T WORK FOR WE ARE NOT WITH G THAT CORONAVIRUS THESE HAVE BEEN VERY, VERY SMALL CHANGES WHICH VIIS CONSISTENT WITH WHAT VIRUSES DO ON A NATURAL BASIS >> ALL RIGHT, THANK YOU SO MUCH

I ALWAYS FEEL BETTER TALKING TO YOU THANK YOU FOR BREAKING IT DOWN FOR US >>> AMONG THE CHAOS, I FOUND A FATHER TRYING TO TEACH HIS SON ABOUT PEACE >> YOU DON'T HAVE TO RETALIATE WITH ANGER WE RETALIATE WITH LOVE POINT THAT IS WHY WE ARE DOWN HERE

THERE IS ALWAYS ANOTHER WAY THAT IS ALL I WANT HIM TO SEE >> 1026 >> WHO IS TELLING THE TRUTH, AND WHO IS LYING EVERY DAY? THAT IS THE STORY AMERICANS WANT TO HEAR >>> >> We'd like to think that we live in some sort of post- racial America

We're reminded time and time again that we do not >> I cherish the fact that we can have these discussions I feel safe talking about this with you guys >> You're watching NBC News Now We've got some breaking news

PEOPLE IN MEXICO CITY HAS SAID IF THEY DON'T WORK THEY CAN'T FEED THEIR FEELINGS FAMILIES >>> THE SOUTH KOREAN GOVERNMENT IS BRINGING STUDENTS BACK IN STAGES >> SO YOU CAN BETTER UNDERSTAND HOW IT WILL IMPACT US HERE >>> LIFE ACROSS ITALY IS BACK TO NORMAL, IT JUST DOESN'T LOOK LIKE THE SAME NORMAL AS BEFORE >>> THE ONLY THING WE HAVE TO FEAR IS FEAR ITSELF

>> THESE ARE THE UNITED STATES UNITED PEOPLE WITH A UNITED PURPOSE >> A GREAT PEOPLE HAVE BEEN MOVED TO DEFEND A GREAT NATION >> 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? DID 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 6 FEET APART FROM ONE ANOTHER FOR THE MOST PART ARE YOU WORRIED THAT THESE TWO CRISES MAY DOVETAIL IN TERMS OF THE RISK OF TRANSMISSION AT THESE ONGOING PROTESTS? >>> THE WHITE HOUSE IS MEETING WITH SENATE REPUBLICANS TO HAMMER OUT DETAILS FOR A THBL SECOND CORONAVIRUS STIMULUS PLAN OUR CORRESPONDENT JOINS ME NOW FROM CAPITOL HILL GARRETT, TELL US WHAT TO SENATE REPUBLICANS WANT TO SEE IN THIS NEXT STIMULUS BILL? >> Reporter: THERE IS A LI LAUNDRY LIST OF THINGS THAT REPUBLICANS HAVE LAID OUT THEY WANT TO SEE INCLUDED IN THIS BILL

PEOPLE WERE GETTING AN EXTRA $600 A WEEK AND D THAT IS EXPECTED TO RUN OUT ON JULY 31 I AM HEARING DISCUSSIONS TODAY THAT WHILE REPUBLICANS DON'T WANT TO GET THAT AT THE KE SAME LEVEL, BECAUSE THEY FEEL IT IS AN INCENTIVE FOR PEOPLE NOT TO GO BACK TO WORK CK THEY ARE OPEN TO CONTINUE SOME SORT OF EY UNEMPLOYMENT ASSISTANCE WE JUST HAVE TO FIND THE GOLDILOCKS NUMBER OF WHAT IT IS OFDI >> AT LEAST A LITTLE BIT OF RELIEF FOR SOME PEOPLE

TELL ME, HOUSE SPEAKER PELOSI WEIGHED IN AND WHAT DID E NCSHE SAY? >> Reporter: SHE HAS BEEN TALKING ABOUT THE TIMING OF THIS REMEMBER, THE HOUSE PASSED THE HEROES ACT WHICH THEY CONSIDER THEIR OPENING OFFER BACK IN HOED F THE HOUSE IS WAITING TO SEE THE SENATE ACT IN PELOSI SAID SHE DIDN'T THINK IT WAS THE KIND OF THING THAT COULD POTENTIALLY GET DONE BY THE END OF THE MONTH, WHICH WOULD COINCIDE WITH THE UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS RUNNING NE OUT >> LET'S TALK ABOUT THE TIMELINE ABOUT THAT DEADLINE IS THIS GETTING DONE BEFORE THE AUGUST RECESS? >> Reporter: IT DO IS TOUGH TO SEE

THERE ARE A NUMBER OF ROLLING DEADLINES EVERYTHING FROM THE UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE RUNNING OUT ON JULY 31, NGTWO PPE FUNDING RUNNING OUT ON AUGUST 8 THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO BEGIN THE RECESS THE SECOND WEEK THUG IN AUGUST McCONNELL HAS BEEN MORE BULLISH AND HE DOESN'T THINK IT CAN GET DONE BY THE END OF NEXT NN WEEK EARLY AUGUST IS A REREASONABLE TIMEFRAME

>>> JOE BIDEN TODAY SLAMMED PRESIDENT TRUMP'S RESPONSE TO THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC >> IT DIDN'T HAVE TO BE THIS WAY THAT IS WHY I AM CALLING ON ERTHE PRESIDENT TO GET THE FACILITIES AND RESOURCES AND EQUIPMENT THAT IS NEEDED AND GET INTO THEM ESEDNOW >> NBC NEWS CORRESPONDENT JOINS ME NOW MIKE, WHAT ELSE DID BIDEN SAY ABOUT THE PRESIDENT RESPONSE TO THIS PANDEMIC? >> Reporter: WHAT IS INTERESTING IS THE POINT OF THE SPEECHES IS SUPPOSED TO BE ABOUT PPJOE BIDEN ROLLING OUT HIS ECONOMIC PLAN

BUT, IN EACH OF THE SPEECHES HE HAS GIVEN SO FAR, HE HAS FOCUSED A LOT ABOUT THE PANDEMIC AND THE PRESIDENT RESPONSE AS HE SAID EARLIER, THE NUMBER ONE DUTY OF THE PRESIDENT IS THE DUTY TO CARE HE VERY POINTEDLY SAID THE PRESIDENT HAS QUIT SAON YOU HE HAS QUIT ON THE COUNTRY, AS HE HAS BEEN SAYING IN RECENT DAYS THE PRESIDENT RAS RAISED THE WHITE FLAG, SURRENDERING AGAINST THE CORONAVIRUS

AS YOU HAVE HEARD FROM OUR WHITE HOUSE TEAM, WHITE HOUSE ADVISERS HAVE BEEN PUSHING THE PRESIDENT TO RESUME THOSE CORONAVIRUS BRIEFINGS IT HAS CREATED A LEADERSHIP VACUUM THAT THE BIDEN CAMPAIGN HAS BEEN HAPPY BI TO FEEL WE SEE THE ESCALATION IN THE AIR WARS USING THE PANDEMIC THERE ARE TWO O NEW ADS THAT WERE RELEASED TODAY A $50 MILLION AD CAMPAIGN THIS WEEK ALONG

AND THEY FOCUSED A LOT ON THE PANDEMIC ONE OF THEM, YOU SEE A LOT OF JOE BIDEN WEARING A MASK AND LAYING OUT THE SACRIFICES THE COUNTRY NEEDS TO MAKE TO DEFEAT THE PANDEMIC THE OTHER AD, WE SEE THE FORMER PRESIDENT TOUTING THE FACT THAT HE OVERSAW THE ECONOMIC RECOVERY PLAN IN THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION EARLY ON AND OVERSAW THE ADMINISTRATION'S RESPONSE TO THE EBOLA CRISIS IN 2014 OF COURSE, NOTHING NEAR WHAT WE HAVE SEEN IN TERMS OF THE PANDEMIC THAT AD IS MAKING THE POINT OF SAYING, THE VICE PRESIDENT HAS DONE IT BEFORE AND HE CAN DO IT HAAGAIN

>> AGA LOT FEELS DIFFERENT ABOUT 2020 THAN ANY OTHER ELECTION THE PRESENCE OF THOSE CAMPAIGN ADS MIGHT NOT BE SOMETHING THAT IS DIFFERENT BIDEN ALSO TALKED ABOUT HIS ECONOMIC PLAN THAT IS ONE OF THOSE THINGS HE ROLLED OUT BUT IT IS A A TODAY? >> Reporter: THIS SPEECH WE HEARD TWO WEEKS AGO ABOUT MANUFACTURING

LAST S WEEK ABOUT A GREEN ENERGY PLAN THIS WEEK IS ALL ABOUT WITH THE BIDEN CAMPAIGN IS IS DOING A CAREGIVING CRISIS THEY THINK IT HAS NEVER BEEN MORE SALIENT ISSUE, AND NOTHING WE HAVE TALKED ABOUT IN PAST CAMPAIGNS A LOT OF FAMILIES HAVE HAD TO MAKE THESE DECISIONS BECAUSE OF %THE PANDEMIC ESPECIALLY, AS WE THINK ABOUT PEOPLE GOING BACK TO SCHOOL AND WHETHER OR NOT THE CHILDREN WILL GO BACK %%TO SCHOOL

DECISIONS ABOUT WHETHER OR NOT THEY CAN CARE FOR ELDERLY PARENTS AND GRANDPARENTS IN RL NURSING HOMES WHETHER THEY CAN HAVE UNIVERSAL PRETAPED THAT BIDEN IS PROPOSING WHAT HIS PLAN WOULD DO IS TO EXPAND ATFEDERAL RESOURCES IN TERMS OF TAX CREDITS IN A NUMBER OF THINGS INCLUDING RAISING THE PAY FOR CAREGIVERS TO TRY TO ATTRACT MORE PEOPLE INTO THAT WORKFORCE IT WOULD GIVE MORE MONEY TO THE STATES TO ELIMINATE WHAT ATREPEMPAIGN SAID IS AN 800,000 PERSON WAITING LIST FOR COMMUNITY CARE FACILITIES FOR THE ELDERLY COREAND DISABLED IT WOULD ALSO INCLUDE A TAX CREDIT FOR BUSINESSES

NOT SOMETHING A LOT OF DEMOCRATS TALK ABOUT IT IS A BIPARTISAN PROPOSAL IN THE CONGRESS THAT BIDEN IS ADOPTING THAT WOULD GIVE TAX CREDITS S PAO TO BUSINESSES TO CREATE MORE CAREGIVING SPACES TO ALLOW FOR BUSINESSES TO HAVE CHILDCARE FOR WORKERS AS A WAY TO HELP FAMILIES MAKE TOUGH DECISIONS EASIER >> LET'S TURN NOW TO BIDEN'S VP PICKED WE HAVE MORE NEWS

THERE ARE FOUR BLACK WOMEN ON A SHORTLIST WHO IS HE REFERRING TO? >> I WISH I COULD TELL YOU A LOT OF NEWS FROM THE FORMER VICE PRESIDENT ABOUT THE VICE PRESIDENTIAL SEARCH PROCESS IT THVIALIS INTERESG , BECAUSE THE CAMPAIGN ITSELF IS SUPER TIGHTLIPPED ABOUT THIS PROCESS THIS IS THE SECOND TIME NOW AND ABOUT A MONTH THAT BIDEN HIMSELF HAS GIVEN US A LOT OF NEW MEH H INFORMATION ABOUT WHERE THE PROCESS TENDS

HE DID SAY THERE WERE FOUR BLACK WOMEN ON A SHORTLIST I WILL SAY A CAMPAIGN ADVISER VERY QUICKLY SAID TO ME THAT IT WAS NOT A DEFINITIVE STATEMENT AND THEY ARE STILL GOING THROUGH SOME OF THE VETTING PROCESS IF IT IS JUST FOUR, THAT WOULD ELIMINATE SOME OF THE NAMES WE HAVE ON OUR LIST POTENTIALLY, STACEY ABRAMS AND MAYOR KEISHA LANCE BOTTOMS FR FROM ATLANTA WE HAVE SEEN THE CONGRESSWOMAN FROM CALIFORNIA AND OF COURSE, THE WOMAN WHO A LOT OF PEOPLE SEE AS A FAVORITE POTENTIALLY TO BE BIDEN'S RUNNING MATE AND THAT IS, HARRIS

WE ALSO LEARNED WHERE THE PROCESS STANDS THE NON-BIDEN PART OF THE VP CERT PROCESS IS NEARING AN END AND THAT BIDEN HIMSELF WILL BE GETTING THESE PRESENTATIONS FROM HIS SEARCH COMMITTEE AND THE NEXT STEP IS FOR HIM TO HAVE IN PERSON MEETINGS WITH THESE POTENTIAL VPS WE KNOW THAT PERSONAL REPORT AND RELATIONSHIP IS SO CRITICAL EVEN IN LAA PANDEMIC, WHERE HE HAS NOT INTERACTED WITH A LOT OF FOLKS, HE WILL WANT THAT ONE-ON-ONE TIME WITH THE PERSON HE EXPECTS TO WORK WITH FOR FOUR OR EIGHT YEARS IN WHITE HOUSE >> IF >ANYONE IS GOING TO BREAK IT DOWN, OF COURSE IT IS YOU

WHAT WERE THE OTHER MAJOR HIGHLIGHTS FROM YOUR INTERVIEW LAST NIGHT? >> Reporter: WHAT WE SAW LAST NIGHT FROM THE FORMER VICE PRESIDENT IS A STORY THAT BEGAN MAKING NEWS ON FRIDAY NIGHT WHEN HE TALKED ABOUT THE FACT THAT HE IS NOW GETTING BRIEFINGS ABOUT FOREIGN INTERFERENCE IN THE CAMPAIGN JUST BEFORE THE INTERVIEW, HE PUT OUT A STRONG STATEMENT SAYING, HE WAS PUTTING THE KREMLIN ON NOTICE ABOUT ANY POTENTIAL FOREIGN INTERFERENCE IN THIS ELECTION OF COURSE OUR NATIONAL SECURITY HAS BEEN SAYING THAT IT HAPPENED IN 2016 LET'S LISTEN TO WHAT VEHE SAID ABOUT DIRECTLY SPEAKING TO RUSSIA ON SATHIS >> I CAN'T DO ANYTHING ABOUT WHAT IS GOING ON IN RUSSIA, WH EXCEPT RESPOND

KNOWS I MEAN WHAT I SAY THIS IS A VIOLATION OF OUR SOVEREIGNTY IF IN R SOFACT IT OCCURS, THERE WILL BE RESPONSE IN KIND IT WILL NOT GO UNSTATED, UN I NOTICED OR UNREPORTED >> BIDEN IN THIS STATEMENT HE RELIST YESTERDAY SAID, IF IN FACT, RUSSIA CONTINUES TO TRY TO INTERFERE IN OUR ELECTION HE % IS CONSIDERING A RANGE OF POSSIBLE RESPONSES ONE E OF THEM IS THE EXPOSURE OF CORRUPTION

I WANT TO CLARIFY ONE THING WHEN BIDEN SAID HE IS RECEIVING BRIEFINGS, THE CAMPAIGN CLARIFIED HE IS NOT NECESSARILY RECEIVING DIRECT, IN– PERSON INTELLIGENCE BRIEFINGS A NOMINEE WOULD TYPICALLY GET WHAT HAS HAPPENED IS THAT THE OFFICE OF THE DIRECTOR OF NATIONAL INTELLIGENCE HAS BEEN BRIEFING THE NATIONAL PARTY COMMITTEES, THE TRACK CAMPAIGN IN THE %BIDEN CAMPAIGN AND HE HAS BEEN GETTING BRIEFINGS FROM HIS OWN TEAM OF EXPERTS ABOUT WHAT THE INFORMATION IS THEY ARE SHARING >> ALL RIGHT, THANK YOU SO MUCH, MIKE >> THANK YOU

>>> PRESIDENT TRUMP SHIFTING HIS STRATEGY AND REVIVING THE CORONAVIRUS TASK FORCE BRIEFINGS CO TODAY FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE APRIL, AND WITH LESS THAN FOUR MONTHS TO GO UNTIL ELECTION DAY HE IS LOOKING TO GET A GE BOOST FROM NEW EXECUTIVE ORDERS OUR CORRESPONDENT JOINS ME NOW FROM THE WHITE HOUSE CAROL, LET'S TALK WHABOUT THAT PRESIDENT SIGNED A MEMORANDUM TODAY

CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT THAT? >> Reporter: THE PRESIDENT SIGNED A MEMORANDUM ? RE THAT SAYS UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS CANNOT BE INCLUDED AS PART OF THE 2020 CENSUS THE TITLE OF THIS IS AN ASSERTION MEMORANDUM OF ASSURING AMERICAN RI CITIZENS RECEIVE PROPER REPRESENTATIVES IN CONGRESS THE WHITE HOUSE IS SAYING THAT GIVING CONGRESSIONAL REPRESENTATION AND POLITICAL INFLUENCE TO UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS WOULD BE A PRIVATION OF OUOUR DEMOCRATIC PRECEDENT THIS IS VERY CONTROVERSIAL AND WE HAVE SEEN A NUMBER OF STATEMENTS COMING OUT OPPOSING THIS THE

ACLU SAID IT WOULD SEE THE PRESIDENT IN COURT THIS WILL BE LEGALLY CHALLENGED IT IS PART OF A BROADER EFFORT BY THE WHITE HOUSE TO ESSENTIALLY MAKE % A THE PRESIDENT LOOK PROACTIVE, INSTEAD OF REACTIVE AND DEFENSIVE HE IS GOING TO BE SIGNING A NUMBER OF EXECUTIVE ORDERS IN COMING WEEKS THE WHITE HOUSE EXPECTS THEY WILL BE CHALLENGED IN COURT

THIS IS LARGELY AN ELECTION YEAR PLAY FOR THE PRESIDENT IMMIGRATION IS OBVIOUSLY SOMETHING THAT PLAYS VERY WELL SO, WE WILL SEE IMMIGRATION AS WELL AS HEALTHCARE, ACCORDING TO THE PRESIDENT >> WHAT ABOUT THE BRIEFINGS? I WANT TO PLAY A FI CLIP FROM THE LAST TIME THE PRESIDENT PARTICIPATED IN A TASK FORCE RIFFING IN APRIL LET'S LISTEN TI REAL QUICK

>> I THINK THE DISINFECTANT WOULD KNOCK IT OUT IN %A MINUTE IS THERE A WAY WE CAN DO SOMETHING LIKE THAT BY INJECTION? >> THAT MOMENT OBVIOUSLY COST A LOT OF CHATTER RIGHT AFTER WHAT KIND OF SHIFT CAN WE EXPECT IN MESSAGING TODAY? >> THAT IS NOT THE KIND OF BRIEFING THE PRESIDENT'S AIDES INARE HOPING HE HAS WHEN HE STEPPED TO THE PODIUM IN A LITTLE BIT AT THE WHITE HOUSE BUT, THEY WANT HIM TO FOCUS E

VERY NARROWLY ON CORONAVIRUS AND THE RESPONSE TO THE CORONAVIRUS ESSENTIALLY, THE AIDES ARE SAYING THEY FEEL LIKE THEY HAVE LOST CONTROL OF THIS NARRATIVE AMERICANS DON'T KNOW WHAT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IS DOING AND THEY WANT THE PRESIDENT TO BE OUT THERE LOOKING AS IF HE IS LEADING DOON THIS YOU ARE LIKELY TO HEAR HIM TALK ABOUT THINGS LIKE %VACCINES, THERAPEUTICS AND OTHER SUPPLIES THAT ARE GOING TO VARIOUS STATES, AND EVERYTHING HE IS DOING ON THE PANDEMIC THAT IS HOW THEY LE HOPE HE WILL HANDLE THE BRIEFING

WE TALK TO OFFICIALS WHO SAID THEY HOPE, BECAUSE YOU NEVER KNOW WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP THAT IT WILL BE SHORTER THAN WHAT WE HAVE SEEN BEFORE IT COULD LOOK A LITTLE DIFFERENT THAN PAST BRIEFINGS, BECAUSE WE ARE TOLD THAT MEMBERS OF D OKE TO CORONAVIRUS TASK FORCE THAT WOULD TYPICALLY BE WITH THE PRESIDENT WILL NOT BE THERE IT WILL BE MBTHE PRESIDENT ALONE AT THE PODIUM TALKING ABOUT THE PANDEMIC RESPONSE >> WE HEARD A LITTLE BIT ABOUT DR FAUCI NOT BEING WANT TO ATTEND THE BRIEFING

AS SOON TOAS THE PRESIDENT BEGINS TO SPEAK, WE'LL SPRING IT TO YOU LIVE >>> HI, EVERYONE I'M SAVANNAH SELLERS NE LET'S GO TO NBC NEWS CORRESPONDENT, JOE FRIAR HE IS BRINGING US THE T,LATEST

WHAT IS THE LATEST UPDATE? >> HEY, WE START WITH THE LATEST ON THE PANDEMIC THE HEUS IS APPROACHING 4 MILLION CASES BUT THE CDC SAYS ANTI-BODY RATES SHOW IT MIGHT BE 10 TIMES HIGHER THAN REPORTED

THIS LATEST DATA IS FROM TESTS FROM 16,000 PEOPLE IN 10 DIFFERENT REGIONS STILL, THE CDC FF SAYS STMOST AMERICANS HAVE NOT CONTRACTED THE VIRUS >>> THE US IS ACCUSING CHINA FOR TARGETING HACKERS

TODAY, THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT ANNOUNCED AN JU INDICTMENT AGAINST TWO CHINESE NATIONALS THEY'RE ACCUSED OF HACKING NUMEROUS CU ALONG WITH BIOTECH FIRMS, WORKING ON CORONAVIRUS VACCINES AND TREATMENTS FIS PROSECUTORS SAY THEY WORKED FOR THEIR OWN PROFIT AND ALSO FOR THE MAIN CHINESE INTELLIGENCE SERVICE R SE CHINA HAS CONSISTENTLY REFUSED THE ACCUSATIONS

>>> THIS TIME, BARRING FROM BEING COUNTED IN CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICTS THE PRESIDENT SIGNED A MEMO THAT SAYS IT'S THE POLICY UNITED STATES TO NOT INCLUDE UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS, WHEN DECIDING HOW MANY SEATS EACH STATE WILL CLENGET IN CONGRESS THE MEMO COMES AFTER THE SUPREME COURT BLOCKED THE ADMINISTRATION'S ATTEMPT TO INCLUDE A ON CITIZENSHIP QUESTION ON THE QUESTIONNAIRE TODAY, MINORITY LEADER CHUCK SCHUMER REACTED TO THE MEMO

>>> ATTEMPTING TO WEAPONIZE THE CENSUS FOR POLITICAL GAIN, IS YET ANOTHER RACIALLY DRIVEN ATTACK BY A PRESIDENT AND AN ADMINISTRATION THAT WRONGLY VIEWS IMMIGRANTS AS THE ANONENEMY, WHEN THEY ARE A VITAL PART OF OUR SOCIETY >> JOE BIDEN HIT THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL TODAY, CRITICIZING PRESIDENT TRUMP'S RESPONSE TO THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC %SP THE FORMER VICE PRESIDENT UNVEILED A $775 BILLION, 10-YEAR VE PLAN IT'S FOCUSED ON EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION, IN- HOME ELDER CARE AND LONG-TERM % CARE FOR THE DISABLED

THIS IS THE THIRD PLANK FOR BIDEN'S BUILD BETTER TO BUILD BACK DISTRESS CAUSED BY THE PANDEMIC >> JUST IMAGINE IF WE CAN PUT 3 MILLION AMERICANS TO WORK IN NEW CARE AND EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION, THEN, COMBINED WITH MY PROPOSAL TO PROVIDE FAMILIES WITH UP TO %12 WEEKS OF PAID FAMILY AND WE MEDICAL LEAVE, WE COULD FREE UP MILLIONS MORE PEOPLE, TO JOIN THE PAID LABOR FORCE INCREASING ECONOMIC GROWTH ID

FULL-TIME WORKERS WILL GET $300 E PART-TIME WORKERS, $150 PLUS A LITTLE IM TIME WITH FAMILY ON THANKSGIVING BUT SAVANNAH, SOMETHING TELLS ME THOSE DEDICATED BLACK FRIDAY SHOPPERS WILL STILL BE LINING UP ON THANKSGIVING % SOMETHING I HAVE NEVER, EVER HAD ANY DESIRE TO DO

I DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU >> WELL, JOE AREN'T YOU JUST IMMUNE TO THE THRILL OF A GOOD SALE? I'M NOT GOING TO LIE I MIGHT HAVE I'G DONE IT ONCE OR TWICE JUST FOR SOMETHING I COULDN'T PASS UP >>> GLAD TO HEAR IT

THAT'S GOOD TO HEAR I'VE COVERED IT I'VE INTERVIEWED PEOPLE WAITING IN LINE BEFORE BUT I'VE NEVER DONE IT BEFORE MYSELF I'M INTERESTED TO HEAR YOUR PERSPECTIVE

>> YOYEAH MAYBE WE'LL GET TO THIS NOVEMBER THANKS, JOE >>> ERFLORIDA IS SEEING RECORD INCREASES IN CORONAVIRUS HOSPITALIZATIONS COMBINED WITH A RECORD SURGE IN DEATHS WE'VE GOT NBC NEWS CORRESPONDENT SAM BROCK JOINING US NOW FROM MIAMI

SAM, FLORIDA REPORTED MORE THAN 9,400 NEW CASES TODAY WHAT ARE HEALTH OFFICIALS SAYING ABOUT THAT? >> AND SAVANNAH, WOULD YOU BELIEVE THAT THAT $9,400 FIGURE IS THE FIRST TIME IN A WEEK THAT FLORIDA HAS NOT CRACKED 10,000 CASES IN A SINGLE DAY? 00 TO GIVE YOU A LITTLE CONTEXT RIGHT NOW, FLORIDA HAS 370,000 NEW INFECTIONS COMPARE THAT TO CALIFORNIA, WHICH HAS ALMOST 400,000 THERE ARE TWICE MANY MOPEOPLE THAT LIVE IN THE GOLDEN STATE AS LD LIVES IN THE SUNSHINE STATE THAT IS ALARMING

FLORIDA NOW IS AVERAGING 1400 DEATHS PER DAY THIS PAST WEEK THAT'S A RECORD HIGH SO 800 OR SO DEATHS THIS LAST WEEK THAT IS ABOUT 15 DE TO 15% OF THE STATE'S ENTIRE DEATH TOLL SINCE THE PANDEMIC STARTED ALARM BELLS FOR INND MOST OF THE STATE ARE RINGING

IT DEPENDS ON WHICH OFFICIAL YOU TALK TO GOVERNOR WHRON DESANTIS GAVE A PRESS CONFERENCE IN TALLAHASSEE HE SAID THERE ARE ENCOURAGING SIGNS A THAT THE NUMBERS ARE STARTING TO PLATEAU IN TERMS OF POSTIVITY RATE ER TODAY WAS ABOUT 18% POSITIVE RATE FOR THE AB STATE OF FLORIDA IT HAD BEEN 15 OR 16% THE LAST COUPLE OF DAYS

THESE ARE ALL ELEVATED FROM WHERE IT WAS SEVERAL WEEKS AGO THAT'S NOT EXACTLY TRUE AG HE ALSO SAID THERE IS HOSPITAL SPACE RIGHT NOW FOR THE PEOPLE WHO NEED IT FOR THE STATE, THERE'S ABOUT 22% CAPACITY FOR HOSPITAL BEDS 15% FOR ICU BEDS

THAT'S WHAT THE STATE IS REPORTING WHAT WE ARE SEEING IN ACTUALITY, ATARWHEN WE TALK TO PHYSICIANS, NURSES, ER DOCTORS, IS NSTHAT THEY HAVE TO SHUFFLE THINGS AROUND TO FREE UP THE ICU BED AND THAT DOESN'T EVEN SPEAK TO THE ISSUE THEY HAVE, THE URGENCY WITH STAFFING AND EQUIPMENT AS WELL

WE HAVE A PROBLEM IT IS VERY MUCH CONCENTRATED IN SOUTH FLORIDA, WITH A LOOK AT HOW ACUTE IT IS HERE BUT IT IS A PROBLEM AND OFFICIALS ARE LOOKING AT LOCKING THINGS DOWN AT THE GOVERNOR IS TAKING A BIT MORE OF AN OPTIMISTIC APPROACH IN TERMS OF HOW HE EVALUATES IT

IT >> JUST SO TOUGH TO HEAR FROM THOSE PEOPLE ON THE FRONT LINES ABOUT THE DIFFICULTIES THAT THEY'RE FACING NOW, SAM ES ONE OF FLORIDA'S LARGEST COUNTIES IS CHANGING THE WAY IT CALCULATES CORONAVIRUS, I UNDERSTAND? TELL US ABOUT WA THAT >> YEAH THIS IS REALLY INTERESTING

IT WAS THE HEADLINE TODAY % MIAMI-DADE COUNTY CAME OUT AND IS REALIGNING ITS IS CALCULATIONS WITH THE STATE'S DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? THE LAST TIME MIAMI-DADE REPORTED ITSELF POSTIVITY RATE THE PERCENTAGE OF PEOPLE DIVIDED BY THOSE WHO TESTED, WAS 28%

WHICH IS AN ASTRONOMICAL NUMBER IT IS NOW REPORTING THAT AG IT IS NOW DOWN TO 20% HOW DID THAT HAPPEN? THEY GOT TOGETHER WITH STATISTITIONS, WHICH DECIDED, ONCE SOMEONE TESTS POSITIVE, IT IS IT NOW A NEW CASE BUT NEGATIVE TESTS WILL CONTINUALLY BE COUNTED BECAUSE CAT% THOSE PEOPLE IN THEORY ARE NOT CASES YET THEY ARE POTENTIAL CASES

SO THAT %BROUGHT ALL OF THE PERCENTAGES DOWN FROM 20 — 28 TO 20% 20% IS STILL REALLY HIGH BUT WHY THIS IS MATERIAL TO CONVERSATIONS ABOUT SALONS, GYMS AND RESTAURANTS REOPENING, IS THERE BE CERTAIN THRESHOLDS WHERE LOCKDOWNS COME INTO PLAY THEY WANTED METO MAKE SURE THE COUNTY ANDND STATE WERE ON THE SAME PAGE, IN TERMS OF HOW THEY'RE CALCULATING THE PERCENTAGE OF PEOPLE TESTING POSITIVE NOTHING IS CHANGING, SAVANNAH, IN TERMS OF THE PEOPLE WHO TI%%ARE STICK IN SOUTH FLORIDA

THEY'RE JUST CALCULATING IT NOW IN IDA DIFFERENT WAY >>> WELL, THAT IS NUANCE THANK YOU FOR BREAKING THAT DOWN FOR US LET'S SWITCH OVER TO SPORTS R THE NFL AND PLAYERS UNION HAVE DRAFTED AN AGREEMENT ON CORONAVIRUS TESTING

WHAT ARE THE DETAILS THERE? >> THIS IS IN KIND OF LIKE THE BIG LAST OBSTACLE THAT HAD TO FALL FOR THE NFL AND PLAYERS ASSOCIATION, TO BE IN AGREEMENT ABOUT WHAT CONDITIONS ENTO RETURN TO WORK 72 NFL PLAYERS SO FAR, HAVE TESTED POSITIVE FOR COVID-19 SO FAR FROM WHAT WE KNOW THIS PUTS INTO PLACE, DAILY TESTING FOR PLAYERS THEY ALSO INHAVE TO TEST POSITIVE

EXCUSE ME THEY HAVE TO TAKE TWO TESTS THAT WOULD HAVE TO PROVE NEGATIVE, AT LEAST 72 HOURS APART, BEFORE THEY CAN EVEN ENTER TRAINING CAMP ONCE THEY GET THERE, IT'S TESTING EVERY SINGLE WAY FOR TWO WEEKS IF IT FALLS, IT WOULD THEN PIVOT TO EVERY OTHER DAY IF THEY GO OVER, IT WOULD THEN GO BACK

WHAT WE ARE LEARNING NOW IS THAT THIS SORT OF STRATEGY, REGULAR TESTING, IF YOU CAN AFFORD THE TEST, REALLY HELPS THE NBA JUST REPORTED THAT THEY DID RTTHEIR LATEST ROUND OF TESTING, 346 PLAYERS WERE TESTED ZERO WERE 46 POSITIVE THAT IS GREAT NEWS FOR THE NBA THE NFL IS HOPING TO MAYBE MIMIC THAT RESULT AS IT LOOKS TO START ITS SEASON IN SEPTEMBER

>>> AND AS ASSOME OF THESE PLANS ARE BEING UNVEILED, HOW ARE THESE PLAYERS HANDLING THE NEWS? I KNOW WE'VE E SEEN SOME EXPRESSING THAT THEY WEREN'T HAPPY THEY DIDN'T KNOW THEY FELT SAFE THEY HAERERDIDN'T K IF THEIR FAMILIES FELT SAFE WHAT ARE THESE AGREEMENTS BEING MET WITH? >> THAT IS A GREAT QUESTION IT IS A "WE WANT TO PLAY," #WE WANT TO PLAY FROM THE LIKES OF DREW BREES, RUSSELL WILSON

TRULY, THE BIGGEST NAMES SAYING WE WANT ON% TO GET BACK ON THE FIELD BUT WE HAVE FAMILIES, CHILDREN, PERHAPS PARENTS WHO ARE IMMUNOCOMPROMISED IN SOME WAYS WE DON'T WANT TO PUT THEM IN HARM'S WAY WHAT ENDED UP HAPPENING IS THIS AGREEMENT CAME THROUGH WE HAVE NOT HEARD FROM THE SAME SINCE

BUT THE OFFICIALS DID SAY, WE ASKED FOR THE STRONGEST POSSIBLE TESTING, TRACING AND TREATMENT PARTICLES WE FEEL LIKE WE'RE THERE NOW TO START AND ST FINISH THIS SEASON, BASED %T ON WHAT THE NFL HAS DONE SO AT LEAST THE NFL AS AN ORGANIZATION IS COMING OUT AND SAYING, WE ARE SATISFIED WITH WHERE THINGS HAVE ULTIMATELY ENDED UP >> THAT IS GOOD NEWS AND AS CONFUSING AS IT ALL

IS, I GUESS THERE IS SOME HAPPINESS AROUND SOME POTENTIALLY NORMALCY RETURNING THANK IA YOU SO MUCH >> THANK YOU, SAVANNAH >>> HEALTHCARE WORKERS IN SOUTH CAROLINA ARE BEING HIT HARD BY CORONAVIRUS

BUT ACTUALLY YOU KNOW WHAT, YOU GUYS, WE ARE ABOUT TO GO TO OU THE WHITE HOUSE, WHERE THE PRESIDENT IS HOLDING A CORONAVIRUS BRIEFING LET'S TAKE A LISTEN ♪ [ MUSIC ] ♪ >>> AND WHAT MY ADMINISTRATION IS DOING TO GET THE OUTBREAK UNDER CONTROL G SEEMS LARGELY IN SUN BELT

BUT COULD BE SPREADING MY TEAM IS ALSO WORKING NIGHT AND DAY WITH CAPITOL HILL TO ADVANCE THE NEXT ECONOMIC RELIEF PACKAGE WE'RE WORKING VERY RHARD ON IT WE'RE MAKING PROGRESS I ALSO KNOW THAT BOTH SIDES WANT TO GET IT DONE

WE'LL CALL IT PHASE 4 I THINK WE'RE GOING TO GET IT DONE'R WE'LL PROTECT OUR WORKERS, OUR SCHOOLS AND OUR FAMILIES, AND PROTECT THEM VERY STRONGLY AS ONE FAMILY, WE MOURN EVERY PRECIOUS LIFE THAT HAS BEEN LOST

I PLEDGE IN THEIR HONOR THAT WE WILL DEVELOP A VACCINE AND WE WILL DEFEAT THE VIRUS WE'RE DOING VERY WELL WITH THE VACCINE DEVELOPMENT AND THERAPEUTIC DEVELOPMENT BUT I WANT TO THANK OUR BRAVE DOCTORS AND NURSES AND FRONT LINE RESPONDERS, THE JOB THEY DO IS INCREDIBLE AND THEY ARE TRULY BRAVE

MY ADMINISTRATION WILL STOP AT NOTHING TO SAVE LIVES AND SHIELD THE VULNERABLE, WHICH IS SO IMPORTANT WE'VE LEARNED SO IS MUCH ABOUT THIS DISEASE AND WE CHKNOW WHO THE VULNERABLE ARE AND WE ARE ABGOING TO INDEED SHIELD THEM AND AGAIN, THE VACCINES ARE COMING

AND THEY'RE COMING A LOT SOONER THAN ANYONE THOUGHT POSSIBLE BY YEARS WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE OLD SYSTEM N AND D LOOK AT THE NEW SYSTEM, I THINK BY YEARS THE CHINA VIRUS IS A VICIOUS AND DANGEROUS ILLNESS BUT WE'VE LEARNED A NGGREAT DEAL ABOUT IT

AND WHO IT TARGETS UT WE ARE IN THE PROCESS OF DEVELOPING A STRATEGY OFTHAT IS GOING TO BE VERY, VERY POWERFUL WE'VE DEVELOPED AS WE GO ALONG, SOME AREAS OF OUR COUNTRY ARE DOING VERY WELL OTHERS ARE DOING LESS WELL L

IT WILL PROBABLY, UNFORTUNATELY, , GET WORSE BEFORE IT GETS BETTER SOMETHING I DON'T LIKE SAYING ABOUT THINGS, LIBUT THAT'S THE WAY IT IS IT'S WHAT WE HAVE I YOU LOOK ALL OVER THE WORLD IT'S ALL OVER THE WORLD

AND IT TENDS TO DO THAT THE GOVERNORS ARE WORKING VERY, VERY HARD AND WE ARE SUPPORTING THEM 100% EVERYTHING THEY NEED, THEY GET AND WE ARE TAKING GOOD CARE

WE HAVE RE TREMENDOUS SUPPLIES AND A GREAT SUPPLY CHAIN, WHETHER IT'S VENTILATORS OR GOWNS OR JUST ST ABOUT ANYTHING THEY NEED SO THAT'S A BIG DIFFERENCE FROM INHERITING VERY, VERY EMPTY M CUPBOARDS THE MEDIAN AGE OF STHOSE WHO SUCCUMB TO THE CHINA VIRUS IS 78 YEARS S OLD ROUGHLY HALF OF ALL DEATHS HAVE BEEN INDIVIDUALS IN NURSING HOMES OR IN LONG-TERM CARE

IN ONE STUDY, 90% OF THOSE HOSPITALIZED HAD UNDERLYING MEDICAL CONDITIONS, WHETHER IT'S , HEART OR DIABETES, BUT USUALLY, IT'S SOME KIND OF A CONDITION, IT SEEMS THAT PEOPLE HAVE THAT THEY DO, IT'S A PROBLEM, NO QUESTION ABOUT IT YOUNG ADULTS MAY OFTEN HAVE MILD OR EVEN NO SYMPTOMS THEY WON'T EVEN KNOW THEY'RE SICK THEY WON'T HAVE ANY IDEA THEY HAVE A VIRUS

THEY WON'T HAVE VE ANY IDEA AT ALL AMERICA'S YOUTH WILL ACT RESPONSIBLY AND WE'RE EVERYBODY THAT WHEN YOU ARE NOT ABLE TO S SOCIALL DISTANCE, WEAR A MASK GET A MASK WHETHER YOU LIKE THE MASK OR NOT, THEY HAVE AN IMPACT

THEY'LL HAVE AN EFFECT AND WE NEED EVERYTHING WE CAN GET DATA SHOWS CHILDREN HAVE THE LOWEST FATALITY RISK EN 9996% OF ALL VIRUS FATALITIES ARE IN ADULTS

THINK OF THAT SO THAT'S MUCH, MUCH, MUCH LESS THAN 1% FOR CHILDREN, YOUNG PEOPLE BY UNDERSTANDING THESE RISK PROFILES TAAND LEARNING HOW TO TREAT THE DISEASE, WE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO GREATLY REDUCE MORTALITY IN THE UNITED STATES IN FACT, WE'LL SHOW YOU A CHART AND HOW WELL WE DO COMPARED TO WE THE REST OF THE WORLD

WE HAVE SEVERAL TREATMENTS ALREADY AVAILABLE THAT SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCE THE SEVERITY ANAND DURATION OF THE DISEASE, INCLUDING REMDESIVIR, WHICH HAS BEEN VERY SUCCESSFUL AND MADE WIDELY AVAILABLE, STEROID TREATMENT AND WE OIHAVE MANY MORE HAPPENING, AND COMING OUT WE'VE LEARNED BEST PRACTICES FOR TREATMENT OF D THE VIRUS AT EVERY Y STAGE AND HAVE SHARED THESE FINDINGS WITH MEDICAL PROVIDERS AND WE'VE SHARED AL THEM ALL OVER THE WORLD

BUT THE RELATIONSHIP WITH OTHER T SH COUNTRIES HAS BEEN VERY STRONG WE'RE ALL WORKING TOGETHER THIS INCLUDES ENSURING ALL HOSPITALS ARE AWARE OF THE IMPORTANCE OF DIFFERENT APPROACHES TO OXYGEN TREATMENT, INCLUDING HIGH- FLOW OXYGEN, THE IMPORTANCE OF STEROID OX ER TREATMENT FOR THOSE ON VENTILATORS TM AND WHEN YOU'RE ON A VENTILATOR, WE'VE LEARNED A TREMENDOUS NE AMOUNT ABOUT THE USE OF THE VENTILATOR AND AT THE BEGINNING, PEOPLE NEVER HAD AN EXPERIENCE LIKE THIS, WHERE WE NEEDED SO MANY VENTILATORS SO FAST

AND EVEN LATHE USE OF THE VENTILATORS BUT THE DOCTORS T HAVE BECOME INCREDIBLY, AND NURSES AND HELPERS, HAVE BECOME INCREDIBLY GOOD ER AT THE USE OF VENTILATORS, WHICH IS ACTUALLY A VERY COMPLICATED PROCEDURE AND ALLOCATING LI REMDESIVIR TO HOSPITALS BASED ON NEW ADMISSIONS, SINCE IT WORKS BEST EARLY IN HOSPITALIZATION AND THAT'S SOMETHING THAT THEY HAVE REALLY STARTED THEY'RE USING IT MUCH EARLIER

FATALITIES NATIONWIDE, HAVE FALLEN 75%, SINCE MID- APRIL IT'S A GREAT NUMBER AS CASES AND FATALITIES RISE IN CERTAIN HARD- HIT STATES, WHICH YOU'RE LOOKING AT RIGHT NOW WE'RE SURGING PERSONNEL SUPPLIES AND THERAPEUTICS

WE AGAIN HAVE TREMENDOUS AMOUNTS OF SUPPLIES WE ARE IN %DOVERY GOOD SHAPE, AND WE CAN MOVE THEM VERY QUICKLY OUR CASE FATALITY RATE HAS CONTINUED TO DECLINE AND IS LOWER THAN THE EUROPEAN UNION AND ALMOST TH EVERYWHERE ELSE IN THE WORLD IF YOU WATCH AMERICAN TELEVISION, YOU'D THINK THE UNITED STATES WAS THE ONLY COUNTRY INVOLVED WITH AND SUFFERING FROM THE CHINA VIRUS, WHILE THE WORLD IS SUFFERING VERY BADLY BUT THE FACT IS THAT MANY COUNTRIES ARE SUFFERING VERY, VERY, VERY BADLY

ASK THEY WERE SUFFERING FROM THIS VIRUS FOR A LONG TIME % WE'VE DONE MUCH BETTER THAN MOST, AND WITH THE FATALITY RATE AT A LOWER RATE THAN MOST, IT IS SOMETHING THAT WE CAN TALK ABOUT, BUT WE'RE WORKING AGAIN WITH THEM BECAUSE WE'RE AG HELPING A LOT OF COUNTRIES THAT PEOPLE DON'T EVEN KNOW ABOUT I GET CALLS ALL THE TIME, ASKING FOR HELP ESPECIALLY AS IT PERTAINS TO THE VENTILATORS

THEY NEED HELP WITH VENTILATORS THEY HAVE TO GET THEM THEY'RE VERY HARD TO GET OREYTH % WE'RE MAKING THOUSANDS NOW A MONTH THOUSANDS OF VENTILATORS A MONTH

IT'S BEEN QUITE AMAZING HOR WE KEEP DOING A GOOD JOB AND THINGS WILL GET BETTER AND BETTER WE'LL BE PUTTING UP CHARTS BEHIND ME, SHOWING DIFFERENT STA50ITIVITY — STATISTICS DIFFERENT RATES OF SUCCESS, I GUESS YOU COULD SAY, ALSO, THINGS THAT WE CAN DO BETTER ON

BUT YOU'LL SEE THEM THEY'LL BE PUT UP AS WE GO IN APRIL, THE AVERAGE AGE OF INDIVIDUALS WHO TESTED POSITIVE FOR THE VIRUS WAS OVER 50 YEARS OLD TODAY, THE AVERAGE AGE IS SIGNIFICANTLY YOUNGER HOSPITAL LENGTHS OF STAY Y ARE ALMOST HALF OF WHAT THEY WERE IN APRIL

SO THE STAYS ARE ABOUT HALF THE RATE OF CASES REQUIRING HOSPITALIZATION IS BEING REDUCED AND MORTALITY AMONG THOSE ADMITTED IZEITO THE HOSPITAL IS NEARLY 1 — ONE-HALF OF WHAT IT WAS IN APRIL WE'RE LEARNING A LOT WE'RE LEARNING A LOT ABOUT THIS DISEASE THE DOCTORS OUARE LEARNING A LOT

NOT ONLY IN THIS BUT THINGS ARE HAPPENING, TOO, LIKE THE REMDESIVIR AND OTHER ELEMENTS, STEROIDS, ET CETERA BUT THESE TRENDS CHANGE WITHOUT OUR CONTINUED AND RELENTLESS FOCUS AND THAT'S WHAT ANLE WE HAVE

WE HAVE A RELENTLESS FOCUS AND THAT'S THE WAY IT HAS BEEN SINCE THE BEGINNING S AS YOU KNOW, IN RECENT WEEKS, WE'VE SEEN A CONCERNING RISE IN MANY PARTS OF OUR SOUTH YOU LOOK AT SOUTH/SOUTHWEST AND WEST

THIS GROWTH IN CASES FIRST BEGAN TO APPEAR IN MID-JUNE, PRIMARILY AMONG 18 TO 35 YEAR OLDS MANY OF WHOM WERE ASYMPTOMATIC MA WE'RE ALSO FACING A SIGNIFICANT SPIKE ACROSS THE WEST OF THE WESTERN HEMISPHERE INCLUDING MEXICO MEXICO HAS BEEN HIT VERY VERY HARD

AS YOU KNOW, THE PRESIDENT, A GREAT GENTLEMAN WHO WAS HERE TWO WEEKS AGO, AND THEY HAVE BEEN HIT REALLY HARD BECAUSE WE HAVE ACHIEVED A NEARLY FOUR-FOLD INCREASE IN TESTING EACAPACITY IN TWO WEEKS, WE ARE SUCCESSFULLY IDENTIFYING MORE SYMPTOMATIC AND MILD CASES SOME CASES SO MILD THAT YOU REALLY DON'T EVEN TREAT THEM SOME CASES WITH CHILDREN, WHERE THEY DON'T EVEN KNOW THAT THEY'RE REAL AND I GUESS THEY'RE NOT VERY ILL

BECAUSE THEY RECOVER ALMOST IMMEDIATELY L% PER CAPITA, THE US IS CONDUCTING 50% MORE TESTS THAN EUROPE

AND WE'VE MO CONDUCTED THREE TIMES MORE TESTS THAN THE WESTERN HEMISPHERE COMBINED OVER 50 MILLION TESTS THIS ALLOWS S IOUS TO ISOLATE THOSE WHO ARE INFECTED, EVEN THOSE WITHOUT SYMPTOMS, SO WE KNOW EXACTLY WHERE IT'S GOING AND WHEN IT IS GOING TO BE THERE WE'RE ALSO WORKING TO REDUCE TURN- AROUND TIME MY ADMINISTRATION HAS BEEN AGGRESSIVELY RESPONDING TO CASE GROWTH

IN THE SUN BELT AND WE O O CONTINUE TO DO SO, WORKING VERY CLOSE WITH ALL GOVERNORS BUT RIGHT NOW, IN PARTICULAR THOSE GOVERNORS WE'RE COORDINATING CLOSELY WITH HOSPITALS AND E GOVERNORS IN THE LAST THREE WEEKS I'VE SENT SENIOR OFFICIALS INTO NINE STATES TO MEET WITH GOVERNORS AND PROVIDE RECOMMENDATIONS TO THE VARIOUS LEADERS OF THE STATE, INCLUDING HOSPITAL ADMINISTRATORS, ET CETERA

MY NCRSET ADMINISTRATION CURRENTLY HAS ZERO UNFILLED REQUESTS FOR UNFULFILLED REQUESTS FOR EQUIPMENT ILOR ANYTHING ELSE THAT THEY NEED FROM THE GOVERNORS NO GOVERNOR NEEDS ANYTHING RIGHT NOW AND WE THINK T % WE'LL HAVE IT THAT WAY, UNTIL THE END BECAUSE FRANKLY, WE ARE STOCKED UP AND READY TO GO, WHEREVER WE HAVE TO GO WE HAVE NEARLY 7,000 NATIONAL GUARD AND MILITARY MEDICAL PERSONNEL IN TEXAS, CALIFORNIA, AND FLORIDA AND ARIZONA IT'S HELPING US GREATLY

I WANT ORNGTO THANK THEM VERY MUCH THE MILITARY HAS BEEN FANTASTIC WE'RE CLOSELY MONITORING HOSPITAL CAPACITY AND THESE STATE HOSPITALS ARE OSRI OPEN FOR ELECTIVE SURGERIES AND OTHER PROCEDURES SO HOSPITALS ARE OPEN FOR ELECTIVE SURGERIES

WE WANT EN AMERICANS TO GET VE THE MEDICAL TREATMENTS THEY NEED, ALL OF THE GOVERNORS WE HAVE SPOKEN WITH SAY THEY HAVE ENOUGH BED CAPACITY THAT'S A GREAT THING OUR INITIAL SHUTDOWN WAS TO PREVENT THE OVERFLOW OF OUR HOSPITALS AND TO ALLOW US TO MEET THE DEMANDS CAUSED BY THIS GLOBAL PANDEMIC, INCLUDING THE VENTILATORS, AND A PERMANENT SHUTDOWN WAS REALLY NEVER AN OPTION, IN TERMS OF WHAT WE'RE DOING RIGHT NOW THIS WOULD BE COMPLETELY UNSUSTAINABLE, PRODUCE DEBILITATING LY ECONOMIC FALLBACK, AND LEAD TO CATASTROPHIC PUBLIC HEALTH CONSEQUENCES THERE ARE CONSEQUENCES TO SHUTDOWNS

AND WE'VE SAVED POTENTIALLY MILLIONS OF NC LIVES BY DOING THE SHUTDOWN BUT NOW WE'RE VERY AWARE OF THIS DISEASE WE UNDERSTAND THE DISEASE TO A LARGE EXTENT NOBODY IS REALLY MAYBE GOING TO FULLY UNDERSTAND MA IT BUT WE'LL END UP WITH A CURE, WE'LL ENDUN WITH THERAPEUTICS, WE'LL END UP WITH A VACCINE VERY SOON, ALL THREE

WE'RE INSTEAD, ASKING AMERICANS TO USE MASKS, SOCIALLY DISTANCE, AND EMPLOY VIGOROUS HYGIENE WASH YOUR HANDS IG EVERY CHANCE YOU GET, WHILE SHELTERING HIGH- RISK POPULATIONS RI WE ARE IMPLORING YOUNG AMERICANS TO AVOID PACKED BARS AND OTHER CROWDED INDOOR GATHERINGS ER BE SAFE AND BE SMART WE'RE SURGING TESTING CAPACITY TO IDENTIFY AND ISOLATE CASES

THIS INCLUDES A NEWLY APROVED TESTING PLATFORM TO NURSING HOMES ACROSS THE SOUTH YOU KNOW G ROALL OF THE PROBLEMS THAT WE'VE HAD WITH SO MANY PEOPLE, SO SADLY THEY WERE INFECTED SO THAT ALL OPOF THE STAFF AND RESIDENTS CAN BE ROUTINELY TESTED AND ISOLATED TO ENSURE OUR ELDERLY ARE EVEN MORE STRONGLY PROTECTED THAN ANYBODY ELSE THAT'S REALLY THE HIGH-RISK PEOPLE

THE HIGH-RISK, WONDERFUL PEOPLE ONCE THIS CURRENT SURGE IN CASES WILL ENABLE E PEOPLE TO VISIT THEIR LOVED ONES AFTER TAKING A TEST WHICH IS A BIG DIFFERENCE

ULTIMATELY, OUR GOAL IS NOT MERELY TO MANAGE THE PANDEMIC, BUT TO END IT WE WANT TO GET EM RID OF IT AS SOON AS WE CAN THAT IS ONWHY GETTING A VACCINE REMAINS A TOP PRIORITY TWO VACCINE CANDIDATES ARE ENTERING THE FINAL CLINICAL TRIALS THIS MONTH

HAD WAS ACHIEVED IN RECORD TIME IA IT USED TO BE YEARS BEFORE YOU A BE IN POSITION LIKE WE ARE RIGHT NOW FOUR OTHER VACCINES LED TO FINER TRIALS AND THE FOLLOWING WEEKS, WE'RE MASS PRODUCING SO THAT THE FIRST VACCINE WILL BE AVAILABLE IMMEDIATELY AND LOGISTICALLY, WE BL HAVE THE MILITARY READY TO DID

HE GO WE HAVE GREAT PEOPLE, LOGISTIC MILITARY PEOPLE WHO ARE WAITING FOR THE VACCINE SO THEY CAN DISTRIBUTE IN RECORD TIME THAT'S TEWHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN SO OUR MILITARY IS ALL SET TO GO

WE WILL DELIVER A VACCINE, THERAPEUTICS, WHATEVER IT IS NECESSARY AND DEFEAT THE VIRUS ONCE AND FOR ALL AND I'LL TAKE A FEW WECE QUESTIONS IF YOU'D LIKE I WANT TO THANK THE WHITE HOUSE STAFF, ALL OF THE DOCTORS THAT WE HAVE BEEN WORKING WITH SO WE CLOSELY AND JUST SA LOT OF VERY POSITIVE THINGS ARE HAPPENING IT'S A NASTY, HORRIBLE DISEASE NASHOULD HAVE NEVER BEEN ALLOWED TO ESCAPE CHINA

BUT IT DID AND IT INFECTED THE WORLD AND THE WORLD IS SUFFERING BUT WE'RE GOING TO GET IT TAKEN CARE OF AND WE'RE HELPING LOTS OF OTHER COUNTRIES

JOHN? >> MR PRESIDENT FIRST, I RJUST WANT TO GET CLARIFICATION YOUR PRESS SECRETARY SAID TODAY, THAT YOU SOMETIMES TAKE MORE THAN ONE GEIO%% TEST A DAY

WHY IS THAT? >> I DON'T DKNOW ABOUT MORE THAN ONE I DO OUTAKE, PROBABLY ON AVERAGE, A TEST EVERY TWO DAYS, THREE DAYS AND I DON'T KNOW OF ANY TIME I'VE TAKEN TWO TESTS IN ONE DAY BUT I COULD SEE THAT HAPPENING >> SO REPUBLICANS AND DEMP DEMOCRATS SAY THEY WANT TO SEE MORE MONEY IN TESTING

THEY WANT TO SEND MORE TESTING YOU PROBABLY SAW NICK MULVANEY SAID HIS KIDS, IT TOOK HIM A WEEK TO GET TEST RESULTS BACK HE SAID THIS IS SIMPLY INEXCUSABLE, GIVEN LYWHERE WE ARE IN THIS PANDEMIC?" >> WE HAVE DONE MORE TESTING BY FAR THAN MANY SOME TAKE A WHILE SOME ARE 5 MINUTE, 15- MINUTE TESTS

BUT WE'RE DOING MASSIVE NUMBERS AND THE NUMBERS ARE COME G COMING DOWN AS WE GO, THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF KIDS BEING MADE RIGHT NOW, WHICH GIVE YOU A 15- MINUTE AND A FIVE-MINUTE TEST SO WE'LL BE ABLE TO GET THOSE NUMBERS DOWN THOSE NUMBERS ARE SIMILAR IN OTHER ARPLACES

THEY'RE ALSO DOING MASSIVE NUMBERS NUMBERS LIKE NOBODY THOUGHT POSSIBLE BUT THOSE NUMBERS WILL BE COMING DOWN I AGREE I THINK IT'S A GOOD THING IF WE S

% T CAN DO IT >> ARE YOU IN FAVOR OF MORE FUNDING? >> THEY'RE GOING TO MAKE A PRESENTATION TO OF% ME TONIGHT AND TOMORROW ON THAT AND AGAIN, WE'RE LEADING THE WORLD I THINK THE LE SECOND COUNTRY AT 12 WE'RE GOING TO BE OVER 50 MILLION TESTS

THE SECOND COUNTRY IS INDIA, WITH 12 MILLION THEN YOU HAVE 7 MILLION, 6 MILLION AND 4 MILLION I THINK WE ARE DOING TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF TESTING BUT IF THE DOCTORS AND THE PROFESSIONALS FEEL THAT EVEN THOUGH WE'RE S AT A LEVEL THAT NOBODY EVER DREAMT POSSIBILITY THAT THEY WOULD LIKE TO DO MORE, I'M A BO OKAY WITH IT >> WHY ARE YOUR DOCTORS NOT WITH YOU HERE TODAY

DR FAUCI, DR BIRX? >> WELL, DR BIRX IS RIGHT OUTSIDE YES? >> NUMBER 1

I WANT TO KNOW, IN NOVEMBER, DO YOU WANT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE TO JUDGE YOU — >> CAN YOU SPEAK UP, PLEASE? >> DO YOU WANT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE TO ? JUDGE YOU ON THE BALLOT IN NOVEMBER, BY HOW YOU'VE HANDLED THIS PANDEMIC SO FAR? >> THIS, AMONG OTHER THINGS, I THINK THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WILL JUDGE US R?ON THIS, AND THE ECONOMY THAT WE CREATED AND ALREADY SETTING ON WE SET RECORD JOB NUMBERS AS YOU KNOW WE HAD A STRONG YEAR I THINK WE'LL HAVE A STRONG THIRD QUARTER, FOURTH QUARTER I THINK NEXT YEAR IS GOING TO BE A RECORD YEAR

I THINK THEY'RE GOING TO JUDGE ME ON THAT AND I THINK THEY'RE GOING TO JUDGE ME ON THE TAX CUTTING AND REGULATION CUTTING, WHICH MAY BE HAS DONE TO THE EXTENT WE GOT VETERANS CHOICE NOBODY THOUGHT THAT WOULD BE POSSIBLE THAT'S BEEN MANY DECADES, THEY'VE BEEN TRYING TO GET VETERANS CHOICE

IT'S CALLED CHOICE, WHERE THEY CAN GO GET A DOCTOR, IF THEY HAVE TO WAIT IN LINE FOR TWO WEEKS OR FIVE WEEKS OR TWO DAYS THAT'S BEEN A GREAT THING I THINK VETERANS ACCOUNTABILITY THEY'LL JUDGE ME ON ALL OF THIS AND I THINK WE CAN SAY, THIS HAS NEVER BEEN CHALLENGED IN THE FIRST 3 AND A HALF YEARS

THE FIRST YEARS OF A PRESIDENT I DON'T THINK ANY ADMINISTRATION, ANY PRESIDENT HAS ACCOMPLISHED SO MUCH AS WE'VE ACCOMPLISHED, FROM ENERGY TO HEALTH, TO SO MANY OTHER THINGS THEN THIS CAME IN THE PLAGUE I CALL IT THE PLAGUE

THE PLAGUE CAME IN TERRIBLE THING SHOULD HAVE BEEN STOPPED WASN'T STOPPED IT CAME IN

WE HAD TO SHUT THINGS DOWN TO SAVE POTENTIALLY MILLIONS OF LIVES WE DID THAT AND NOW WE'VE STARTED THEM UP AND I THINK WE'VE REALLY STARTED IT UP VERY SUCCESSFULLY >> MR

PRESIDENT >> THANK YOU, MR PRESIDENT YOU'VE BEEN SAYING FOR MONTHS, THE VIRUS WOULD SIMPLY DISAPPEAR AND NOW YOU'RE SAYING IT WOULD LIKELY GET WORSE BEFORE IT GETTING BETTER

IF IT DOES GET WORSE, IFAMERICANS KEEP DYING, ARE YOU RESPONSIBLE FOR THAT? >> WELL, THE VIRUS WILL DISAPPEAR I LIKE TO SAY, EITHER WAY, WHEN YOU LOOK AT IT, THE GOVERNORS ARE WORKING WITH ME I'M WORKING WITH THE GOVERNMENT WE'RE WORKING HAND IN HAND I THINK WE'RE ALL RESPONSIBLE

I VIEW IT AS A TEAM VERY GOOD RELATIONSHIPS WITH THE GOVERNORS VERY, VERY GOOD RELATIONSHIPS I COULD SAY I'M FULLY RESPONSIBLE BUT YOU KNOW, ONE DAY, WE HAD A VIRUS COME IN

AND I CLOSED THE BORDERS, DID A LOT OF THINGS THAT WERE VERY GOOD IN FACT, DR FAUCI SAID WE SAVED TENS OF THOUSANDS OF LIVES WHEN WE CLOSED THE BORDER AND NOBODY WANTED TO DO IT I WANTED TO DO IT

WE CLOSED THE BORDER WE CLOSED THE BORDER TO AVOID THIS FAIRLY CLOSE AFTER, I CLOSED THE BORDERS FOR THOSE COMING FROM EUROPE THOSE WERE TREMENDOUS MOVES ONE PERSON IS TOO MUCH

BUT LET'S SAY 140,000 WE COULD HAVE DOUBLE, TRIPLE, QUAD RUPLE THAT NUMBER WE DID A LOT OF THINGS RIGHT INCLUDING EQUIPMENT IT'S A SHAME IT HAPPENED

CHINA SHOULD HAVE STOPPED IT SIMULTANEOUS SIMULTANEOUS [ SIMULTANEOUS SPEAKERS ] >> I HAVE TWO KES QUESTIONS MY FIRST QUESTION IS WE HAVE TESTING HERE AT THE PLATFORM AT THE WHITE HOUSE

>> YES >> IT'S GREAT YOU GET TESTED QUICKLY DO YOU THINK IT WOULD BE EASIER TO REOPEN AND RESTART BUSINESSES IF WE COULD PRODUCE MORE? >> WE'RE TRYING TO DO THAT GREAT QUESTION

WE'RE TRYING VERY MUCH TO DO THAT RATHER THAN SENDING THE TEST IN, GOES THROUGH THE MAIL ONE DAY, COMES BACK ANOTHER WAY NO MATTER HOW THEY SEND THEM IT'S A DAY AND A DAY THAT'S TWO DAYS ALREADY WASTED

AND IF IT SPINS BY THE TIME YOU GET IT BACK, IT'S TWO OR THREE DAYS WE'RE TRYING TO GET THE TESTING ON SITE I LIKE IT THE BEST >> AND MY SECOND QUESTION A LITTLE DIFFERENT TOPIC

BUT ONE THAT PEOPLE ARE TALKING ABOUT GHISLAINE MAXWELL IS IN PRISON A LOT OF PEOPLE WANT TO KNOW IF SHE'S GOING TO TURN IN POWERFUL PEOPLE I KNOW YOU TALKED IN THE PAST AND YOU CRITICIZED BILL CLINTON'S BEHAVIOR I'M WONDERING, DO YOU THINK SHE'S GOING TO TURN IN ANY POWERFUL MEN? HOW DO YOU SEE THAT WORKING OUT? >> I DON'T KNOW

I HAVEN'T REALLY FOLLOWED IT VERY MUCH I JUST WISH HER WELL, FRANKLY I'VE MET HER NUMEROUS TIMES OVER THE YEARS, SINCE I LIVED IN PALM BEACH AND I GUESS THEY LIVED IN PALM BEACH BUT I WISH HER WELL

WHATEVER IT IS I DON'T KNOW THE SITUATION WITH PRINCE ANDREW JUST DON'T KNOW NOT AWARE OF IT >> ON EMPLOYMENT INSURANCE

HOW MUCH BELOW $600 ARE YOU WILLING TO GO? AND YOU SAID THE ECONOMY IS NOW BOUNCING BACK STRONG SO WHY DID WE NEED TO COME IN AT ALL? >> THE ECONOMY IS GETTING STRONGER AND I THINK WE HAVE A CHANCE TO HAVE A STRONG ECONOMY, ESPECIALLY WITH SOME OF THE THINGS I JUST SPOKE ABOUT WERE WE WANT TO HAVE PEOPLE GO BACK AND WANT TO GO BACK TO WORK, AS OPPOSED TO BEING FORCED INTO A POSITION WHERE THEY'RE MAKING MORE MONEY THAN THEY EXPECTED TO MAKE AND THE EMPLOYERS ARE HAVING A HARD TIME GETTING THEM BACK TO WORK

SO THAT WAS A DECISION THAT WAS MADE I WAS AGAINST THAT ORIGINAL DECISION BUT THEY DID THAT IT STILL WORKED OUT WELL, BECAUSE IT GAVE PEOPLE A LIFE LINE THEY'RE THINKING ABOUT DOING 70%

THE AMOUNT WOULD BE THE SAME BUT DOING IT IN SMALLER INITIAL AMOUNTS SO THAT PEOPLE ARE GOING TO WANT TO GO BACK TO WORK, AS OPPOSED TO MAKING SO MUCH MONEY THAT THEY REALLY DON'T HAVE TO BUT WE WERE GENEROUS WITH THEM I THINK IT'S BEEN A TREMENDOUSLY SUCCESSFUL PROGRAM THE WHOLE THING HAS BEEN SUCCESSFUL

IF YOU LOOK WE'RE IN A PANDEMIC YET WE'RE PRODUCING TREMENDOUS NUMBER OF JOBS THAT WAS SOMETHING THAT NOBODY THOUGHT POSSIBLE >> MR

PRESIDENT THANK YOU VERY MUCH YESTERDAY, YOU SAID WEARING A MASK WAS AN ACT [ INAUDIBLE ] IF THAT IS THE CASE, WHY DON'T YOU DO IT MORE FREQUENTLY? >> I DO WHEN I NEED I CARRY THE MASK WHEN I GO — I WENT INTO WALTER REED HOSPITAL THE OTHER DAY

I HAD THE MASK RIGHT HERE AND CARRIED IT AND I WILL USE IT GLADLY NO PROBLEM WITH IT AND I SAID THAT

I SAY, IF YOU CAN, USE THE MASK, WHEN YOU CAN, USE THE MASK IF YOU'RE CLOSE TO EACH OTHER IF YOU'RE IN A GROUP, I WOULD PUT IT ON WHEN I'M IN A GROUP IF I'M IN AN ELEVATOR AND THERE ARE OTHER PEOPLE WITH ME, INCLUDING LIKE SECURITY PEOPLE, IT'S NOT THEIR FAULT THEY HAVE TO BE IN THE ELEVATOR

I WANT TO PROTECT THEM ALSO I PUT ON A MASK I HAVE NO PROBLEM WITH THE MASKS I VIEW IT THIS WAY ANYTHING THAT POTENTIALLY CAN HELP, AND THAT CERTAINLY CAN POTENTIALLY HELP, IS A GOOD THING

I HAVE NO PROBLEM I CARRY IT I WEAR IT YOU SAW ME WEARING IT A NUMBER OF TIMES AND I'LL CONTINUE

PLEASE >> ARE YOU SENDING MIXED MESSAGE >> YESTERDAY, YOU TWEETED OUT KNOW IMAGE WEARING A MASK THEN LAST EVENING, WE SAW YOU NOT WEARING A MASK AT YOUR HOTEL >> I DON'T KNOW

AT THE HOTEL I WAS PRETTY FAR AWAY FROM PEOPLE I THINK I EXPLAINED THIS IF YOU'RE CLOSING TOGETHER, I WOULD PUT ON THE MASK IF YOU'RE NOT, I WOULD SAY, FOR INSTANCE, I'LL SEE, LIKE HERE, YOU'VE ALL BEEN TESTED I'VE BEEN TESTED

OFTEN TIMES, I AM WITH PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN TESTED IN THEORY, YOU DON'T NEED THE MASK I'M GETTING USED TO THE MASK THE REASON IS, THINK ABOUT PATRIOTISM MAYBE IT IS, IT HELPS

IT HELPS NOW, WE HAVE EXPERTS THAT HAVE SAID IN THE RECENT PAST THAT MASKS AREN'T NECESSARILY GOOD TO WEAR YOU KNOW THAT BUT NOW THEY'VE CHANGED THEIR MIND IF THEY CHANGE THEIR MIND, THAT'S GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME

SO I WEAR IT WHEN APPROPRIATE PLEASE >> THANK YOU, SIR >> A LOT OF AMERICANS, THOUGH, MAY BE SURPRISED AT YOUR CHANGE OF TONE, OVER ALL OF THIS SUDDEN EMBRACE OF MASKS

SOCIAL DISTANCING THE — >> I'VE ALWAYS AGREED WITH THAT I MEAN, I'VE NEVER FOUGHT EITHER ONE BUT CERTAINLY SOCIAL DISTANCING THAT'S COMMON SENSE

TO ME, THAT'S COMMON SENSE I'D LIKE TO SAY, MAYBE MAKE IT A LITTLE FURTHER >> THE IDEA THAT THINGS WILL GET WORSE, PERHAPS BEFORE THEY GET BETTER HERE AND PERHAPS THE REALIZATION THAT THIS RESURGENCE, IF YOU WILL, IS FOR REAL, WHEN YOU USED TO TALK ABOUT IT IN TERM OF LITTLE FIRES BEING PUT OUT HERE AND THERE >> WE HAVE THEM, TOO

>> NO WE HAVE EMBERS AND FIRES AND BIG FIRES AND UNFORTUNATELY, NOW, FLORIDA IS IN A BIG, TOUGH POSITION YOU HAVE A GREAT GOVERNOR THERE

YOU HAVE A GREAT GOVERNOR IN TEXAS YOU HAVE PEOPLE THAT ARE VERY SKILLED PEOPLE AND I THINK THEY'RE GOING TO HANDLE IT VERY WELL THEIR HOSPITAL CAPACITIES ARE HOLDING UP BUT TEXAS IS A BIG STATE

AND IT'S VERY WELL RUN AND SO IS FLORIDA AND I THINK THEY'LL DO A VERY GOOD JOB >> I WANT TO ASK YOU ABOUT THE ISSUE OF VACCINES, WHICH YOU ALREADY MENTIONED YESTERDAY, A STUDY BY A CHINESE COMPANY SHOWED SOME PROMISING RESULTS FOR A CORONAVIRUS VACCINE CANDIDATE

IF CHINA WERE FIRST IN DEVELOPMENTING THE VACCINE OR EVEN IF IT WEREN'T WOULD THE ADMINISTRATION BE WILLING TO WORK WITH CHINA TO BRING A SUCCESSFUL CHINESE VACCINE TO THE US? >> WE'RE WORKING WITH ANYONE WHO WILL GET US A GOOD RESULT I THINK WE HAVE GOOD RESULTS

WE'RE ALREADY IN TESTING NOBODY THOUGHT THAT WOULD BE POSSIBLE UNDER THE OLD SYSTEM, IT WOULD BE A YEAR TO TWO YEARS BEFORE YOU COULD THINK ABOUT USING THE WORD "TESTING" AND WE'VE HAD GOOD RESULTS NOW THEY HAVE TO TEST IT FOR SAFETY, MAKE SURE IT'S SAFE

AND I THINK YOU'RE GOING TO SEE SOMETHING OVER THE NEXT FAIRLY SHORT PERIOD OF TIME MAYBE VERY SHORT PERIOD OF TIME, HAVING TO DEAL WITH THERAPEUTICS AND VACCINES WE'LL BE DOING THESE QUITE OFTEN WE'LL BE KEEPING YOU ABREAST OF THIS AND WE'LL ALSO TALK ABOUT OTHER TOPICS LIKE OUR ECONOMY, WHICH IS DOING WELL

THE STOCK MARKET HAD ANOTHER GOOD DAY I THINK THEY HAD A GOOD DAY BECAUSE THEY SEE A LOT OF POSITIVE THINGS HAPPENING ON THIS FRONT, TOO THANK YOU VERY MUCH THANK YOU >> MR

AND DOCTORS HERE ARE TELLING ME THAT THEY ARE GRAVELY CONCERNED THAT IF THIS CONTINUES, HOSPITALS IN THE AREA COULD BECOME OVERRUN, WHICH WOULD BE THEIR WORST NATE MARE THIS HOSPITAL BEHIND ME HAS SEEN A 100% INCREASE IN COVID HOSPITALIZATIONS OVER JUST THE LAST FOUR WEEKS AND THE CHIEF CLINICAL OFFICER HERE, DR KEITH BLACKSTONE TOLD ME HE'S SEEN MUCH WORSE SITUATIONS NOW THAN IN THE FIRST WAVE

HE SAID PATIENTS HE'S SEEING NOW ARE YOUNGER THEY ARE SICKER THEY'RE STAYING IN ICU

BEDS FOR LONGER AND NOW, MEDICAL ARE FINDING THEMSELVESES IN HOSPITAL BEDS NOT FROM GETTING SICK ON THE JOB BUT GETTING SICK IN THE COMMUNITY BECAUSE COMMUNITY SPREAD HERE IS SO HIGH DOCTORS ARE SOUNDING THE ALARM MAYORS ARE SOUNDING THE ALARM

U PATIENTS ARE EVEN SICKER SO THEY'RE IN THE ICU

LONGER IT'S JUST A STRESSFUL TIME FOR THE FRONT LINE STAFF SO IT'S EVERYBODY YOU THINK ABOUT EVERYBODY WHO WORKS IN THE HOSPITAL EVERYBODY FROM OUR CLINICAL STAFF, TO OPERATIONS STAFF, TO OUR CLEANING STAFF, YOU KNOW, THAT WHOLE PIECE, IT'S JUST PROTECTING EVERYBODY AT THIS POINT

WE ARE REACHING A POINT WHERE THE SITUATION IS QUITE DIRE, THE NEXT TWO WEEKS, COULD BE MOST TELLING THE NUMBERS SPEAK FOR ITSELF WHAT IS HAPPENING ON THE GROUND IN THE HOSPITALS SPEAKS FOR ITSELF IT'S ALL IN OUR HANDS >> WE CAN BEND THAT CURVE BACK AGAIN

AND REALLY THOUGHT ABOUT OTHERS IN THEIR COMMUNITY >>> TENSIONS ARE RUNNING HIGH IN PORTLAND, OREGON AFTER ANOTHER NIGHT OF VIOLENCE DEMONSTRATORS HAVE TAKEN TO THE STREETS EVERY NIGHT FOR NEARLY TWO MONTHS OREGON'S GOVERNOR SAYS PEACEFUL PROTESTS TURNED VIOLENT AFTER PRESIDENT TRUMP DEPLOYED FELLOW OFFICERS INTO PORTLAND >> IT'S ABOUT POLITICAL THEATER

IT'S CLEARLY NOT ABOUT PUBLIC SAFETY NOR ABOUT PROBLEM SOLVING >> THERE'S ABSOLUTELY NO QUESTION THAT THE PROTESTS WERE CALMING DOWN AND THAT THE PRESENCE OF FEDERAL TROOPS HERE TRUMP'S TROOPS HERE IN THE STREETS OF PORTLAND, HAS SUBSTANTIALLY EXACERBATED AN ALREADY CHALLENGING SITUATION

>>> NBC NEWS REPORT MARA BARRETT JOINS US NOW TELL US WHAT YOU SAW LAST NIGHT >> Reporter: HEY, SAVANNAH YEAH, I WAS HERE LAST NIGHT, WITH OUR TEAM ON THE GROUND AS PROTESTORS STARTED TO GATHER AROUND 8:30, 9:00 P

M WE SAW A RATHER PEACEFUL GATHERING WE'RE OUTSIDE THE BUILDING NOW AND JUST OUTSIDE, THEY CIRCLED THE BLOCK, THERE WERE HUNDREDS OF MOMS AND DADS, ACTUALLY, THAT CAME OUT IN ORDER TO SUPPORT THE BLACK LIVES MATTER MOVEMENT AND PROTECT THE PROTESTORS THAT HAVE BEEN GETTING INJURED OVER THE PAST COUPLE OF DAYS

IT WAS A VERY SOMBER PEACEFUL EXPERIENCE THEY LINKED ARMS AND HELD HANDS WITH EACH OTHER AS THEY SANG SONGS WITH LYRICS LIKE WE WILL OVERCOME HANDS UP, DON'T SHOOT THEN THEY STARTED TO MARCH AROUND THE SQUARE THEY CIRCLED BACK HERE

WHEN WE WERE UNDER THE PORTSICO OF THE BUILDING HERE LATER AS IT GOT INTO THE NIGHT THEY STARTED TO GATHER HERE IT WAS FILLED ALMOST COMPLETELY WITH FEDERAL AGENTS WHO THEY ASSUMED WERE YELLING INSIDE HERE OVER TIME, AS IT GOT LATER THROUGHOUT THE NIGHT, WE WATCHED OUR NBC CAMERAS

BUT BASICALLY, PEOPLE WERE USING FIRE EXTINGUISHERS, OTHER BATTERING DEVICES TO BREAK DOWN THIS WALL HERE YOU CAN SEE, THERE'S NO GRAFFITI ON THIS SECTION BECAUSE THEY ACTUALLY HAD TO PUT IT BACK AFTER THE OVERNIGHT PROTESTS BECAUSE ONCE THEY BROKE THROUGH TWO LEVELS OF PLYWOOD THERE WAS THICK GLASS

AS PROTESTORS WERE EXERCISING THIS KIND OF VIOLENT ACTIVITY TEAR GAS CAME DOWN FROM ABOVE, TO HELP DISPERSE THE CROWD AND THEN THE FEDERAL AGENTS CAME OUT, DEPLOYING MORE TEAR GAS LOTS OF SHOTS WERE FIRED REPORTED

AND SEVERAL INJURIES REPORTED WE TALKED ABOUT HOW THEY WERE TAKING DOWN A LOT OF THE FENCING NOW, IT WAS HERE AND WE WEREN'T SURE IF THIS WAS GOING TO BE MORE OF A DEFENSIVE MOVE OVERNIGHT AND THEY DEFINITELY CAME OUT TO ENGAGE WITH THE PROTESTS

IT'S LATER THAN WE'VE SEEN IN RECENT NIGHTS BUT AGAIN, OBVIOUSLY ANOTHER TENSE NIGHT, LAST NIGHT SO WE ANTICIPATE IT'S GOING TO BE A SIMILAR SCENE AGAIN TONIGHT SAVANNAH? >> AND MARA, WHAT DID THE PROTESTORS SAY ABOUT THE FEDERAL RESPONSE? OBVIOUSLY SOME OF THAT VIDEO LOOKS PRETTY INTENSE >> YEAH

SO I SPOKE TO A COUPLE OF PROTESTORS HERE ON THE GROUND LAST NIGHT WHEN THINGS WERE PEACEFUL A LOT OF THEM HAVE BEEN OUT HERE WE'RE COMING UP ON 55 NIGHTS STRAIGHT OF PROTEST AND THEY SAID THE VIOLENCE HAS REALLY ESCALATED IN THE LAST WEEK OR SO

THEY SUSTAINED INJURIES THEMSELVES TAKE A LISTEN TO TWO WOMEN I SPOKE TO JUST LAST NIGHT >> THEY'VE GOTTEN MORE HARSH WAY MORE LIKE I GOT HIT IN THE LEG WITH A FLASH-BANG GRENADE

IT KNOCKED MY WHOLE BODY OFF THAT'S CRAZY I GOT OUT OF A WHEELCHAIR I HAVE A BROKEN PELVIS I'M STILL OUT OF HERE EVERY NIGHT

AND I'VE GOTTEN HURT REALLY BAD AND I'VE GOTTEN SHOT BY PEPPER BULLETS >> I'M SHOWING UP TO PROTEST THEIR PRESENCE AND THEY VIOLENTLY ABUSE US AND LIE ABOUT IT AND IT'S SO HYPOCRITICAL

BECAUSE THE WHOLE THING WE'RE PROTESTING IS POLICE BRUTALITY >> WE HAVE A PROBLEM AND IT NEEDS TO BE SOLVED HERE LOCALLY IN PORTLAND NOT WITH TRUMP'S SECRET AGENTS >>> ANOTHER POINT JACQUELINE MADE THERE SHE SAID THAT THE LOCAL POLICE, THE ISSUES THAT ARE HERE IN PORTLAND, COMES AS SYSTEMIC RACISM, CAN BE SOLVED AT A LOCAL LEVEL FIRST

AND THE FEDERAL OFFICERS HERE IS JUST A DISTRACTION IT'S BEEN THE FOCUS HERE AS PROTESTORS CHANT FOR FEDERAL OFFICIALS TO LEAVE PORTLAND BUT IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT BEFORE THE FEDERAL OFFICERS CAME TO POARLDZ ABOUT A WEEK AGO, THERE WAS A LOT OF VIOLENCE THAT WAS BEING EXPERIENCED WITH THE PROTESTORS AGAINST THE PORTLAND POLICE AS WELL AND OF COURSE, THE PORTLAND POLICE HAS PULLED BACK AND ISN'T COMMUNICATING WITH THE FEDERAL OFFICERS HERE THE MAYOR AND THE ATTORNEY GENERAL HERE AS WELL AS THE GOVERNOR, REALLY JUST EMPSIDESSING THAT POINT, THAT THEY WANT TO SOLVE THEIR ISSUES HERE IN PORTLAND BY THEMSELVES AND WITHOUT THE INTERACTION OF FEDERAL OFFICIALS HERE

>> YEAH SO MUCH SO, MARA DEMANDING THE IMMEDIATE WITHDRAWAL OF TROOPS WHAT WAS THE RESPONSE? >> MAYOR PUT OUT IN TANDEM BOTH TO THE ATTORNEY GENERAL

AND THE UNPROBABLE ARREST THAT THEY SAY IS HAPPENING IT CONTINUALLY ATTACKED LOCAL LEADERSHIP AND FOLLOWED RHETORIC PURELY FOR CAMPAIGN FODDER WE'RE TALKING ABOUT A LOT OF THIS HAPPENING AND THE GOVERNOR ACTUALLY SAID TODAY IN AN MS NBC INTERVIEW THAT IT'S PURELY A POLITICAL MOVE

THAT THE PRESIDENT SAID HE MIGHT DEPLOY FEDERAL AGENTS TO THE AG SAYING A TEST CASE FOR FUTURE CITIES TO EXPERIENCE SIMILAR VIOLENCE BECAUSE OF THE PRESIDENT TRYING TO TAKE HOLD OF THE CITIES TAKING HOLD OF THE ELECTION IN NOVEMBER SAVANNAH? >> THANKS FOR YOUR REPORTING ON THIS, MARA >>> A NEW LAWSUIT ACCUSES SEXUAL SEXUAL HARASSMENT FOX FIRED REED OVER A SEXUAL HARASSMENT ALLEGATION

I KNOW THE ACCUSATION HERE ARE GRAPHIC AND MAY BE UPSETTING TO SOME VIEWERS BUT CAN YOU TELL US WHAT WE KNOW ABOUT THE RAPE ACCUSATIONS AGAINST HENRY, AND WHAT HIS ALLEGED BEHAVIOR AT FOX WAS LIKE? >> YEAH THIS CAME WITH ITS OWN TRIGGER WARNING IN BRIGHT RED, IN THE BEGINNING, ON THE FIRST PAGE OF THE LAWSUIT TO WARN PEOPLE READING IT THAT IT WAS GRAPHIC, SHOCKING SHE CLAIMS, THE LADY WHO IS ACTUALLY A PRODUCER OR WAS A PRODUCER AT FOX BUSINESS, THAT ED HENRY PSYCHOLOGICALLY MANIPULATED HER, THAT HE ASSAULTED HER ON FOX NEWS PROPERTY

AND THAT HE ALSO RAPED HER IN A HOTEL WHERE FOX NEWS USED TO HELP GET THE ALLEGATIONS ARE VERY GRAPHIC MENTION OF HANCOCK ED HENRY IS ALLEGED TO HAVE TAKEN PHOTOGRAPHS OF HER SHE BELIEVES THE REASON WAS TO POTENTIALLY BLACKMAIL HER INTO DOING WHAT HE WANTED AT THE NETWORK >> AND HOW HAVE HENRY AND HIS ATTORNEY RESPONDED TO THESE INTENSE ALLEGATIONS? >> WELL, AS YOU WOULD EXPECT, ED HENRY'S LAWYER STOPPED BY, SAYING, LOOK

THE #METOO MOVEMENT BUT THEY ARE SAYING THIS WAS A CONSENSUAL RELATIONSHIP THEY ARE SAYING THEY ALSO HAVE EVIDENCE THAT THE PERSON IN QUESTION HAD WRITTEN SUGGESTIVE E- MAILS TO ED HENRY ED HENRY, WHO WAS THE COANCHOR OF AMERICA'S NEWS ON FOX HE RESPONDED ON TWITTER, SAYING, I WILL FIGHT WITH EVERY FIBER OF MY BEING

HE ROSE UP THROUGH THE RANKS OF FOX HE WAS AT CNN, COVERING THE RANKS AT THE WHITE HOUSE, BEFORE HE GOT THERE HE HAS TWO THEY WERE SCHEDULED TO TALK ABOUT THE LIVER TRANSPLANT THAT HE GAVE HIS SISTER >> AND NOW, THE SUIT ALSO INCLUDES THREE CURRENT FOX NEWS HOSTS

THAT'S SEAN HANNITY, TUCKER CARLSON WHAT ARE THEY ACCUSED OF DOING? >> THIS LAWSUIT CONTAINS ALLEGATIONS FROM TWO SEPARATE WOMEN THIS OTHER WOMAN ALSO SAYING THAT ED HENRY SENT HER SUGGESTIVE MESSAGES ALSO CLAIMS SHE WAS SUBJECT TO DEMEANING BEHAVIOR BY SEAN HANITY, ONE OF THE ANCHORS AT FOX NEWS, WHO APPARENTLY HAD THROWN $100 ON THE SET AND SAID, SOMEBODY PAY THIS WOMAN OUT SHE WAS UNABLE TO REMOVE HERSELF FROM THE SITUATION BECAUSE SHE WAS MIKED UP AND GOING ON AIR

SHE ALSO CLAIMS THAT TUCKER CARLSON AND HOWARD KURZ INVITED HER TO A HOTEL AND THAT SHE DECLINED AND THAT SUDDENLY HER APPEARANCES ON THOSE SHOWS WERE MINIMIZED SHE DIDN'T APPEAR TOO OFTEN AFTER THAT >> AND NOW, HAVE ANY OF THEM ADDRESSED THE SUIT YET? >> I REACHED OUT TO THEM, NOBODY HE SAID ANYTHING TO ME THE NETWORK HAS SAID, LOOK WE COVER THEM

OBVIOUSLY FOX NEWS IS AIMING TO PUT A NEW FACE ON THE NETWORK IT'S NO SURPRISE TO ANYBODY THAT YOU KNOW, THEY TRIED TO CLEAN UP THE FACE OF THE NETWORK IN THE BLIGHT OF EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENED WITH THEIR FOUNDER, ROGER AILES WHO WAS OUSTED FROM THE NETWORK FOX NEWS PAID WOMEN WHO ACCUSE HIM AND ACCUSED BILL O'REILLY OF ABUSE OBVIOUSLY, AT THE TIME, BOTH OF THOSE MEN DENIED THE ACCUSATIONS AT THE TIME BUT KEEN TO SAY, LOOK, WE ACTED QUICKLY

THE TIME LINE IS THE LADY IN QUESTION, LEFT THE NETWORK VERY RECENTLY, ON JUNE 12TH SHE NOTIFIED THE NETWORK OF HER ACCUSATIONS AGAINST ED HENRY ON JUNE 25th AND FOX NEWS SAID, LOOK, AS SOON AS WE FOUND OUT, WE SUSPENDED HIM WE HIRED AN OUTSIDE LAW FIRM THEY DID NOT NAME THE LAW FIRM

AND THEN ED HENRY WAS SUSPENDED ON JULY 1st AND YOU KNOW, JULY 16th, HE WAS LET GO FROM THE NETWORK SO FOX NEWS IS SAYING, LOOK, THESE WOMEN CAN PURSUE THE CLAIM WITH HIM HE'S NO LONGER PART OF OUR ORGANIZATION AND THEY SAY THE ACCUSATIONS AGAINST THEIR ANCHORS ARE FALSE

AND THAT'S REALLY IT UNTIL THIS WHOLE CASE KIND OF CONTINUES THROUGH THE LEGAL SYSTEM >> JUST SUCH A DISTURBING STORY THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR INSIGHT ON THIS >> THANKS, SAVANNAH
