ABC News Prime: Coronavirus shutdowns, economic impact, Utah earthquake, Vote 2020


THIS IS WHAT THE INSIDE OF AN ITALIAN INTENSIVE CARE UNIT LOOKS LIKE. PATIENTS SUFFERING ON RESPIRATORS, DESPERATE FOR AIR. WE’RE TOLD CORONAVIRUS IS IN EVERY STATE. TWO NAVY HOSPITALS ARE PREPARING TO DEPLOY, ONE TO THE BIG APPLE, ONE JUST OFF THE WEST COAST. HOSPITALS ON THE GROUND ARE STILL SCRAMBLING FOR MEDICAL NECESSITIES. STOCKS PLUNGING ONCE AGAIN, TRADING HALTED. NOW THE BIG CHANGE ON WALL STREET, NO MORE TRADING ON THE STOCK EXCHANGE FLOOR. ALL THIS AS THE SENATE PASSES A MEASURE TO PROVIDE SICK LEAVE AND FREE TESTING IS PASSED, TEEING UP AN UNPRECEDENTED EFFORT TO FIND MEDICINE THAT COULD WORK ON CORONAVIRUS WHILE RESEARCHERS TRY TO FIND A VACCINE. WE’LL BE COVERING THE POWERFUL EARTHQUAKE. THE DAMAGE REPORTS STILL COMING IN.>>>GOOD EVENING, EVERYONE, I’M LINSEY DAVIS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR STREAMING WITH US. THERE IS A LOT OF NEWS TO GET TO ON THE DEEPENING CORONAVIRUS CRISIS. AT LEAST 137 PEOPLE IN THE U.S. HAVE NOW DIED OF COVID-19, WITH MORE THAN 7,000 CONFIRMED CASES AND FEARS THE ACTUAL NUMBER OF CASES IS MUCH HIGHER. THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION IS ROLLING OUT ADDITIONAL WARTIME MEASURES TO MITIGATE THE CATASTROPHIC EFFECTS OF THE PANDEMIC. WHILE TESTING KITS REMAIN SCARCE, DRIVE-THROUGH TESTING SITES ARE OPEN. MILLIONS AROUND THE WORLD ARE HEEDING ORDERS TO REMAIN INSIDE. WE’RE SEEING SATELLITE IMAGES OF THE STATUE OF LIBERTY. TAKE A LOOK AT THIS HOLY SHRINE IN IRAN BEFORE AND AFTER THE CORONAVIRUS. IN LISBON, PORTUGAL, FORMING A BUSTLING SQUARE, NOW DEVOID OF HUMAN BEINGS. BUT THERE IS SOME GOOD NEWS AND PLENTY OF GLIMMERS OF HOPE. 83,000 PEOPLE HAVE RECOVERED, BUT THERE IS A LONG WAY TO GO. OUR WHIT JOHNSON HAS MORE.>>IT’S THE INVISIBLE ENEMY.>>Reporter: PRESIDENT TRUMP CLOSING THE NORTHERN BORDER WITH CANADA TO ALL NONESSENTIAL TRAFFIC AND POTENTIALLY LIMITING THE FLOW ON THE BORDER WITH MEXICO. THE PENTAGON ANNOUNCING TWO HOSPITAL SHIPS WILL SOON BE ON THE MOVE. THE “MERCY” DEPLOYING TO THE WEST COAST. THE “COMFORT” WILL HEAD FOR NEW YORK HARBOR. AND TODAY, A NEW WARNING FOR YOUNG PEOPLE.>>THERE ARE CONCERNING REPORTS COMING OUT OF FRANCE AND ITALY ABOUT SOME YOUNG PEOPLE GETTING SERIOUSLY ILL AND VERY SERIOUSLY ILL IN THE ICUs.>>Reporter: DOCTORS RAISING THE ALARM THAT TOO MANY MILLENIALS ARE DEFYING ORDERS TO AVOID CROWDS AFTER COUNTLESS IMAGES LIKE THESE. YOUNG PEOPLE DESCENDING ON FLORIDA BEACHES.>>YOU HAVE THE POTENTIAL THEN TO SPREAD IT TO SOMEONE WHO DOES HAVE A CONDITION THAT NONE OF US KNEW ABOUT AND CAUSE THEM TO HAVE A DISASTROUS OUTCOME.>>Reporter: THE PRESIDENT ASKED WHY SOME PROFESSIONAL ATHLETES SEE THEM TO BE GETTING ACCESS TO THE TEST.>>Reporter: DO THE WELL-CONNECTED GO TO THE FRONT OF THE LINE?>>YOU WOULD HAVE TO ASK THEM THAT QUESTION. NO, I WOULDN’T SAY SO, BUT PERHAPS THAT’S BEEN THE STORY OF LIFE, THAT DOES HAPPEN ON OCCASION.>>Reporter: THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT EXPEDITING SO-CALLED SELF-SWAB TESTING KITS TO PROTECT HEALTH CARE WORKERS. THE KITS COULD BE SENT HOME WHERE THE PATIENT COULD DO A SIMPLE NOSE SWAB THEMSELVES. A TECH WOULD PICK UP THE SEALED SAMPLE, CONSIDERED LESS INTRUSIVE THAN THE CURRENT TEST, A PROCESS THE PRESIDENT HIMSELF HAS EXPERIENCED.>>I CAN TELL YOU, BECAUSE I DID IT. BUT WE HAVE A CURRENT PROCESS THAT’S A LITTLE BIT DIFFICULT.>>Reporter: ACROSS THE COUNTRY, PEOPLE WAITING FOR HOURS TO BE TESTED AND THEN DAYS FOR RESULTS. [ COUGHING ]>>I’M JUST GETTING WORSE AND WORSE.>>Reporter: SHE’S BEEN HOME FOR TWO WEEKS WITH HER HUSBAND AND DAUGHTER, DESPERATE FOR A TEST. SHE FINALLY FOUND A HOSPITAL TO TEST HER. BUT NOW THE WAIT FOR RESULTS.>>THE FEELING IS REALLY NOT GOOD. I JUST NEED MY RESULTS BACK AND SEE WHAT THEY WANT TO DO FOR ME.>>Reporter: IN NEW YORK STATE, THE NUMBER OF CASES SOARING, ABOVE 2,400. AT LEAST 16 DEATHS. THE GOVERNOR PUSHING BACK AGAINST A POSSIBLE SHELTER IN PLACE, INSTEAD ISSUING AN EXECUTIVE ORDER, REQUIRING ALL NONESSENTIAL BUSINESSES TO LEAVE 50% OF THEIR WORKERS AT HOME.>>I UNDERSTAND THE ANXIETY, I UNDERSTAND THE FEAR. BUT YOU ALSO HAVE TO REMEMBER THE FACTS OF THE SITUATION, RIGHT? AND THE FACTS ARE STILL VERY CLEAR. WE KNOW WHAT THIS VIRUS DOES.>>Reporter: IN NEW YORK, MORE THAN 1,000 NEW CASES IN JUST THE LAST 24 HOURS. BUT GOVERNOR CUOMO ALSO POINTING OUT THAT MORE THAN 100 NEW YORKERS HAVE ALREADY BEEN RELEASED FROM THE HOSPITAL. AND TONIGHT WE’RE LEARNING THAT LAWYER AT THE CENTER OF THE OUTBREAK IN WESTCHESTER COUNTY WHO WAS IN CRITICAL CONDITION NOW SEEMS TO BE ON THE ROAD TO FULL RECOVERY. HIS WIFE ADDING ON FACEBOOK THAT HE IS AWAKE AND ALERT. HIS FIRST WORDS TO HER, “I LOVE YOU SO MUCH.”>>WHIT, EARLIER WE HAD PRESIDENT TRUMP TALK ABOUT THE DEFENSE PRODUCTION ACT BUT NOW HE’S CLARIFIED THAT STATEMENT?>>Reporter: LINSEY, PRESIDENT TRUMP SAYS HE HAS ALREADY SIGNED IT BUT WILL ONLY INVOKE THIS KOREAN-WAR-ERA WAR IN A WORST CASE SCENARIO, ADDING HE’S HOPEFUL THERE WILL BE NO NEED, LINSEY.>>WHIT JOHNSON, THANKS SO MUCH FOR THAT. WE TURN NOW TO THE THREAT TO OUR MEDICAL CARE PROVIDERS. NEW REPORTS OF DOCTORS AND NURSES CONTRACTING COVID-19 AS THEY RACE TO HELP OTHERS. MANY SAY THEY’RE STILL NOT GETTING THE PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT THAT THEY NEED, AS MORE HOSPITALS RUN LOW ON SUPPLIES. AND AN UPDATE FROM ONE OF OUR OWN AT ABC NEWS, A REPORTER TONIGHT NOW RECOVERING FROM OUR OWN BATTLE WITH COVID-19. OUR MATT GUTMAN HAS MORE.>>Reporter: TONIGHT EMERGENCY ROOM DOCTORS AND NURSES WARNING THAT CRITICAL PROTECTIVE GEAR IS RUNNING LOW AND PUTTING THEM IN DANGER.>>IT’S A THING THAT WE NEED ON THE FRONT LINES RIGHT NOW, IS PERSONAL PROTECTIVE GEAR FOR MY COLLEAGUES AND MYSELF. I’VE GOT MY MASK FOR TODAY RIGHT HERE. AND I’M GUARDING IT WITH MY LIFE, BECAUSE IT COULD BE MY LIFE.>>Reporter: STEPHEN ANDERSON IS AN ER DOCTOR IN AUBURN, WASHINGTON. HE SAYS IN 48 HOURS HIS HOSPITAL WILL RUN OUT OF PROTECTIVE GEAR AND MASKS. OTHER HOSPITALS INSTITUTING SEVERE RATIONING.>>NOW I’M GETTING A MASK AND I’M TOLD TO HOLD ON TO IT FOR THE ENTIRETY OF THE WEEK.>>Reporter: ACROSS THE COUNTRY DOCTORS AND NURSES ARE GETTING SICK. EMORY UNIVERSITY CONFIRMING THEY HAVE WORKERS WHO TESTED POSITIVE. SAN FRANCISCO DOCTOR ROSSNY DANIEL ISOLATING HIMSELF AFTER BEING INFECTED AFTER ATTENDING A MEDICAL CONFERENCE NEAR TIMES SQUARE. MEDICAL WORKERS ARE FEELING ESPECIALLY VULNERABLE.>>I HAVE ASTHMA WHEN I GET THE COMMON COLD OR FLU, I’M SOMETIMES COMPROMISED.>>Reporter: THE U.S. HAS A STOCKPILE OF 13 MILLION MASKS BUT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT HAS SAID UP TO A BILLION MAY BE NEEDED OVER THE NEXT SIX MONTHS. AT PUTNEY HEALTH SYSTEM IN GEORGIA, THEY RAN THROUGH SIX MONTHS OF PROTECTIVE GEAR IN SEVEN DAYS. VOLUNTEERS ARE SELLING COVERS FOR MASKS USING SURGICAL SHEETS.>>WE HAVE AN ARMY OF SEAMSTRESSES MAKING THESE FOR US, VOLUNTEERS.>>Reporter: SOME CRITICAL SUPPLIES PRESENT A BIGGER CHALLENGE. VENTILATORS ARE ALREADY IN SHORT SUPPLY. NATIONWIDE THERE ARE 170,000. SOME ESTIMATES EXPECT A DEMAND OF NEARLY A MILLION.>>WE NEED VENTILATORS. I HAD VENTILATORS THIS MORNING BUT THE HOSPITAL UP THE STREET FROM ME IS OUT OF VENTILATORS AT THE MOMENT.>>Reporter: KYLE ABERNATHY IS RECOVERING FROM AN INFECTION AND IS NOW WATCHING HIS WIFE FIGHT FOR HER LIFE AND NEEDING A VENTILATOR.>>SHE WAS AT ONE POINT REQUIRING 100% OXYGEN THROUGH THE VENTILATOR. NOW SHE’S DOWN TO 50%.>>Reporter: WHILE MANY ARE STRUGGLING TO OVERCOME THE VIRUS, OTHERS HAVE BEEN ABLE TO RECOVER IN A MATTER OF OF DAYS. ABC’S KAYLEE HARTUNG STARTED FEELING SYMPTOMS INCLUDING A LOW GRADE FEVER.>>I HAD A HEADACHE RIGHT BETWEEN THE EYES. I WAS CONGESTED. I HAD BODY ACHES IN PLACES I WASN’T USED TO HAVING THEM. I’M FEELING SO MUCH BETTER. THIS VIRUS REALLY KNOCKED ME OFF MY FEET FOR A DAY.>>SHE LOOKS LIKE SHE’S JUST ABOUT BACK TO 100%. WE’RE JOINED NOW BY MATT GUTMAN. YOU’VE BEEN REPORTING ALL WEEK ABOUT MEDICAL SUPPLY SHORTAGES. SHOULD WE BE CONCERNED THAT MANY DOCTORS AND NURSES WON’T BE ABLE TO COME TO WORK AS MORE PEOPLE SELF-QUARANTINE?>>Reporter: AND WE’RE ACTUALLY STARTING TO SEE THAT ALREADY, LINSEY. UNFORTUNATE BIGGEST DOCTORS AND NURSES STAFFING COMPANIES IN THE COUNTRY REPORTING A 20 TO 30% SPIKE IN DEMANDS FOR TEMPORARY DOCTORS AND NURSES AND ALSO DOCTORS ARE JUST LIKE US, AS ARE NURSES, THEY HAVE KIDS WHO HAVE TO BE TAKEN CARE OF. THIS IS A HUGE CONCERN IN THE MEDICAL COMMUNITY. WHAT HAPPENS WHEN ALL OF THESE DOCTORS START TO GET TAKEN OFFLINE? IN ADDITION TO THAT, A WHOLE GENERATION OF DOCTORS IS OVER 60 PLUS, RIGHT? AND THESE ARE SOME OF THE MOST VULNERABLE GROUPS. THE IRONY IS THOSE ARE THE GROUPS THAT DON’T HAVE TO DEAL WITH CHILDCARE, BUT THEY’RE GOING TO BE OFFLINE. SO THIS IS A HUGE CONCERN FOR THE HEALTH CARE SYSTEM, LINSEY.>>AND ARE THERE PLANS IN PLACE TO MAKE SURE THAT HOSPITALS HAVE THE PERSONNEL AND SUPPLIES THAT THEY NEED AS THE CORONAVIRUS CONTINUES TO SPREAD?>>Reporter: THERE ARE PLANS IN PLACE, BUT NOBODY KNOWS IF THEY’RE ACTUALLY GOING TO BE ABLE TO BEEFFECTUATED. THERE’S THE NATIONAL STRATEGIC STOCKPILE WHICH HAS A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF MEDICAL STOCKPILES, N95 MASKS, GOWNS, BUT WE’RE TOLD IT’S NOT NEARLY ENOUGH. WHAT WE’RE STARTING TO SEE, LINSEY, ARE HOSPITAL MacGYVER’ing MASKS. THAT HOSPITAL WE SAW WAS MAKING MASKS BUT A LOT OF THESE HOSPITALS ARE ON THEIR OWN RIGHT NOW.>>MacGYVER’ing MASKS I DON’T IMAGINE ARE PROTECTIVE AND SAFE MASKS.>>Reporter: WE THINK THEY’RE PROTECTIVE, YOU HEARD THE DOCTOR TALKING ABOUT BEING TOLD TO USE THE SAME MASK FOR A WEEK, THAT’S NOT SANITARY BUT DOCTORS ARE MAKING DO WITH WHAT THEY CAN.>>DESPERATE TIMES. THANK YOU SO MUCH, MATT GUTMAN. AND WE’LL SPEAK TO KAYLEE HARTUNG LIVE LATER IN THE SHOW.>>>THE SENATE TODAY PASSED A MEASURE TO PROVIDE SICK LEAVE AND FREE TESTING AMID THE CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK AS THE ADMINISTRATION WORKS ON OTHER MEASURES TO TRY TO BOOST THE ECONOMY. THE BIGGEST PLAN IS PRESIDENT TRUMP’S PROPOSAL TO INJECT POTENTIALLY MORE THAN $1 TRILLION INTO THE ECONOMY. HALF OF THAT DISBURSED IN TWO ROUNDS OF CHECKS POTENTIALLY WORTH $1,000 TO AMERICANS UNDER A CERTAIN INCOME LEVEL. THE PLAN ALSO CALLS FOR A LOAN PROGRAM FOR SMALL BUSINESSES WORTH UP TO $300 BILLION. AND MORE MONEY FOR THE AIRLINE INDUSTRY AND OTHER DISTRESSED SECTORS LIKE HOTELS AND HOSPITALITY. ABC’S CECILIA VEGA HAS THE DETAILS.>>Reporter: FACING A GROWING PANDEMIC AND ECONOMIC CRISIS, PRESIDENT TRUMP LABELED HIMSELF A WARTIME COMMANDER IN CHIEF.>>I VIEW IT AS A — IN A SENSE, A WARTIME PRESIDENT.>>Reporter: THE PRESIDENT IS PUSHING CONGRESS TO APPROVE A MASSIVE RECOVERY PACKAGE INCLUDING $500 BILLION IN DIRECT PAYMENTS TO AMERICANS, TWO ROUNDS OF CHECKS SENT OUT ON APRIL 6th AND MAY 18th. $300 BILLION FOR SMALL BUSINESSES. AND A $50 BILLION BAILOUT FOR THE HARD-HIT AIRLINE INDUSTRY. HIS TREASURY SECRETARY STEVE MNUCHIN WARNING LAWMAKERS WHAT COULD HAPPEN WITHOUT GOVERNMENT INTERVENTION.>>HE SAID UNEMPLOYMENT COULD SKYROCKET TO 20%. THAT COULD RIVAL THE GREAT DEPRESSION.>>I DON’T AGREE WITH THAT. NO, I DON’T AGREE. THAT’S AN ABSOLUTE TOTAL WORST CASE SCENARIO. BUT NO, WE DON’T LOOK AT THAT AT ALL.>>Reporter: MORE AND MORE THE PRESIDENT IS POINTING THE FINGER AT CHINA, REPEATEDLY CALLING THE DISEASE THE CHINESE VIRUS.>>THERE ARE REPORTS OF DOZENS OF INCIDENTS OF BIAS AGAINST CHINESE-AMERICANS IN THIS COUNTRY. YOUR OWN AIDE, SECRETARY AZAR, SAYS HE DOES NOT USE THIS TERM, HE SAYS ETHNICITY DOES NOT CAUSE THIS VIRUS. WHY DO YOU KEEP USING THIS, WHEN SOME PEOPLE ARE CALLING IT RACIST?>>IT’S NOT RACIST AT ALL. IT COMES FROM CHINA, THAT’S WHY.>>Reporter: THERE ARE CLAIMS HE WASTED CRUCIAL TIME BY DOWNPLAYING THE THREAT FOR MONTHS.>>ONE DAY IT’S LIKE A MIRACLE, IT WILL DISAPPEAR.>>Reporter: TODAY THE PRESIDENT FALSELY CLAIMED THE VIRUS, QUOTE, SNUCK UP ON US.>>CECILIA VEGA JOINS US. CECILIA, HE CONTINUED TO BLAME CHINA WHEN YOU PRESSED HIM IN TODAY’S BRIEFING. WHAT WAS THE RESPONSE IN THE ROOM TO THAT?>>Reporter: IT LED TO A BIT OF AN AWKWARD MOMENT, LINSEY. AFTER I PRESSED THE PRESIDENT ON THIS, CALLING IT THE CHINESE VIRUS, I ASKED THE PEOPLE STANDING BEHIND HIM, ARE YOU OKAY WITH HIM USING THIS LANGUAGE, DO YOU AGREE WITH THIS LANGUAGE? AND I’VE GOT TO SAY THEY ALL STOOD THERE WITH BLANK EXPRESSIONS ON THEIR FACE AND I PUSHED THEM AGAIN AS THEY WERE WALKING OUT THE ROOM AND THEY COULD VERY CLEARLY HEAR ME AND WOULD NOT ANSWER. HERE, IT BEARS REPEATING, THIS IS WHY, LINSEY, THIS IS SO IMPORTANT, THIS IS NOT JUST OFFENSIVE OR MANY ARE DEEMING RACIST LANGUAGE. THIS IS DANGEROUS LANGUAGE. WATCH GROUPS TODAY ARE SEEING INCIDENTS OF BIAS AGAINST ASIAN-AMERICANS IN THIS COUNTRY ON THE RISE AND THEY DIRECTLY ATTRIBUTE IT TO LANGUAGE LIKE THIS, LINKING THIS VIRUS TO THE WUHAN VIRUS, THE CHINESE VIRUS. THE PRESIDENT TODAY SAID HE DID NOTIST TO CALL IT “KUNG FLU” AS DID REPORTEDLY A WHITE HOUSE OFFICIAL. THOSE STANDING WITH THE PRESIDENT HAVE PUBLICLY SAID IN THE PAST NO ONE SHOULD BE USING THIS LANGUAGE BECAUSE ETHNICITY IS NOT WHAT CAUSES IT. BUT LINSEY, I’M WILLING TO BET THE PRESIDENT IS NOT GOING TO STOP.>>WE JUST DID A PIECE LAST WEEK ABOUT CHINESE PEOPLE FEELING THEY NEEDED TO BUY GUNS TO PROTECT THEMSELVES. WHEN ASKED ABOUT CONCERNS THAT ATHLETES AND OTHER WELL-CONNECTED PEOPLE ARE GETTING PRIORITY ACCESS TO TESTING, THE PRESIDENT RESPONDED, THAT’S THE STORY OF LIFE.>>Reporter: THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT HE SAID. YOU NOTICE THIS COMES AFTER STORIES OF THE ENTIRE BROOKLYN NETS TEAM GETTING TIRED, FOUR PLAYERS TESTED POSITIVE. THE ENTIRE UTAH JAZZ TEAM IN THE NBA ALSO WAS TESTED FOR CORONAVIRUS. MEANTIME WE’RE HEARING FROM DOCTORS AND PATIENTS FROM ALL OVER THE COUNTRY SAYING THEY NEED THE TEST, TO A GET THE TEST. THE PRESIDENT SAID HE DIDN’T KNOW WHETHER IT WAS FACTUALLY THE CASE THAT THE RICH AND FAMOUS CUT TO THE HEAD OF THE LINE. BUT YOU HEARD WHAT HE SAID, THAT’S THE STORY OF LIVE.>>THANK YOU, CECILIA VEGA.>>>THE DOW PLUMMETED MORE THAN 1,300 POINTS, IT HAS NOW ERASED ALL THE GAINS IT MADE SINCE PRESIDENT TRUMP TOOK OFFICE. TRADING WAS BRIEFLY HALTED, THAT’S THE FOURTH TIME THAT’S HAPPENED IN THE PAST A COUPLE OF WEEKS. BREAKING JUST A LITTLE WHILE AGO, THE NEW YORK STOCK EXCHANGE WILL CLOSE THE TRADING FLOOR STARTING MONDAY. ALL TRADING WILL BE DONE ELECTRONICALLY. ABC’S REBECCA JARVIS IS DOWNTOWN WITH MORE. REBECCA, HOW WILL THAT WORK?>>Reporter: SO LINSEY, A LOT OF THE TRADING FIRMS THAT TRADE ON THE FLOOR OF THE NEW YORK STOCK EXCHANGE HAVE THE CAPABILITIES OF DOING ALL OF THEIR BUSINESS ELECTRONICALLY. THEY CHOOSE TO DO THEIR BUSINESS ON THE NEW YORK STOCK EXCHANGE, IN NORMAL TIMES, BECAUSE IT’S A PERSON TO PERSON CONTACT BUSINESS. BUT IT’S NOT NECESSARY THAT THEY DO THAT. AND LINSEY, A NUMBER OF THESE COMPANIES, GIVEN THAT THEY EXPERIENCED SEPTEMBER 11th RIGHT IN THEIR BACKYARD WHEN THE NEW YORK STOCK EXCHANGE DID CLOSE THE TRADING FLOOR FOR A HANDFUL OF DAYS BACK THEN, CREATED CONTINGENCY PLANS SO THEY COULD ESSENTIALLY CONDUCT BUSINESS AS USUAL, MAKE THE TRADES FOR THEIR CUSTOMERS AS USUAL, WITHOUT HAVING TO PHYSICALLY BE ON THE FLOOR ITSELF. ANYBODY OUT THERE WHO IS WATCHING RIGHT NOW, IF YOU HAVE A 401(k) OR AN E-TRADE ACCOUNT, ANY TYPE OF ACTIVITY THAT YOU WOULD NORMALLY CONDUCT IN THE STOCK MARKET, YOU STILL CAN CONDUCT IN THE STOCK MARKET UNDER THESE NEW CHANGES, LINSEY.>>AND LET’S MOVE BEYOND WALL STREET TO THE REAL WORLD IMPACT OF ALL THIS. SOME REPORTS SAY THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION WAS WARNED UNEMPLOYMENT COULD REACH 20%. WE’VE SEEN HUGE DROPS IN BUSINESS FOR THE AIRLINES, HOTELS. AND TODAY, FORD AND GM ANNOUNCING THEY WOULD CLOSE FACTORIES IN NORTH AMERICA. HOW BAD COULD THINGS GET ON THE JOB FRONT?>>Reporter: WELL, THIS IS THE BIG CONCERN, LINSEY, BECAUSE WITH THE NUMBER OF COMPANIES THAT HAVE BEEN FORCED TO CLOSE, THE NUMBER OF SMALL BUSINESSES THAT HAVE BEEN FORCED TO CLOSE, THE NUMBER OF UNEMPLOYMENT CLAIMS HAS BEEN SKYROCKETING. WE’VE SEEN IT IN STATES ACROSS THE COUNTRY. IN MICHIGAN, THOSE UNEMPLOYMENT CLAIMS JUMPED OVERNIGHT 550%. IT’S A BIG DEAL. AND THE BIGGEST CONCERN IS THOSE EMPLOYEES GETTING CASH IN THEIR POCKET IN THE COURSE OF TIME SO PEOPLE CAN MAKE THEIR MORTGAGE PAYMENTS, THEY CAN AFFORD TO BUY GROCERIES FOR THEIR FAMILIES WHILE WE WEATHER THROUGH THIS. I WILL SAY THAT TODAY THE PRESIDENT DID MAKE AN ANNOUNCEMENT THAT THERE WILL BE NO FORECLOSURES OR EVICTIONS, THAT HUD WILL ENFORCE THAT THROUGH THE END OF APRIL. SO PEOPLE WHO ARE RUNNING BEHIND ON THOSE PAYMENTS, IF THEY DON’T HAVE THE MONEY BECAUSE OF THE FACT THAT THEY’VE LOST A JOB OR ARE WEATHERING THROUGH THIS STORM, THEY’LL BE PROCEEDING. ALSO A NUMBER OF BANKS, AND THIS IS SOMETHING I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND, IF YOU ARE WORRIED ABOUT MAKING PAYMENTS ON YOUR CREDIT CARD, ON YOUR MORTGAGE, CONTACT YOUR BANK, CONTACT YOUR CREDIT CARD COMPANY, BECAUSE LINSEY, A NUMBER OF BANKS AND CREDIT CARD COMPANIES HAVE PUT OUT GUIDANCE THAT THEY WILL NOT BE CHARGING INTEREST OR LATE FEES IF PEOPLE MISS A PAYMENT THIS MONTH. I WOULD ALSO SAY, THOUGH, IF YOU CAN AFFORD TO MAKE THOSE PAYMENTS, YOU SHOULD. YOU WANT TO MAKE SURE, BECAUSE IT WILL GROW OVER TIME, AND IN GOOD TIMES AND IN BAD, THAT’S THE FACT, SO IF YOU CAN AFFORD IT, MAKE IT, BUT ALSO CONTACT YOUR BANK IF YOU CAN’T BECAUSE THEY WILL WORK WITH YOU, A NUMBER OF THEM WILL AT THIS TIME.>>SOUND AND HELPFUL ADVICE AS ALWAYS, THANK YOU, REBECCA.>>>JOINING US IS WEST VIRGINIA SENATOR JOE MANCHIN, THANK YOU FOR JOINING US, SENATOR.>>THANKS FOR HAVING ME, LINSEY, I APPRECIATE IT.>>YESTERDAY PRESIDENT TRUMP WAS PRAISING WEST VIRGINIA, SAYING THAT THE GOVERNOR HAD DONE A GOOD JOB BECAUSE AT THAT TIME YOU ALL DID NOT HAVE ANYONE WHO HAD TESTED POSITIVE FOR CORONAVIRUS IN YOUR STATE. WHAT WAS YOUR REACTION WHEN YOU HEARD THAT?>>I JUST COULDN’T BELIEVE IT, BECAUSE THEY SHOULD KNOW THE FACTS. WE HAD VERY FEW PEOPLE EVEN TESTED, PERIOD, THAT’S THE REASON. UP UNTIL THAT TIME WE ONLY HAD 84 TESTS DONE OUT OF 1,800,000 PEOPLE. I’VE GOT PEOPLE SLAMMING MY OFFICE AS WE SPEAK RIGHT NOW, LINSEY, BASICALLY SAYING WE NEED TO BE TESTED, WE HAVE SYMPTOMS. WE CAN’T GET TESTS. I WILL SAY THIS. I TALKED TO MIKE PENCE LAST NIGHT, VICE PRESIDENT PENCE IS WORKING, TRYING TO GET US THE TESTING EQUIPMENT AND ALL THE SUPPLIES. WEST VIRGINIA SHOULD BE AT TIER 1, WE HAVE THE MOST VULNERABLE PEOPLE, WE HAVE AN ELDERLY POPULATION, A SICKLY POPULATION BECAUSE OF ALL THE HARD WORK THEY’VE DONE WITH RESPIRATORY DISEASES. WE HAVE TO MAKE SURE WE’RE ON THE FRONT END. IF NOT, IT WILL BE CARNAGE, IT WILL BE A TSUNAMI THAT HITS US AND WE’RE NOT PREPARED FOR US.>>YOU’RE STILL FEELING YOU’RE NOT PREPARED AT THIS POINT?>>WE’RE GETTING THERE, WE’VE DONE ALL THE THINGS, I PRAISE THE GOVERNOR, BASICALLY SHUTTING SCHOOLS DOWN, STOPPING SOCIAL GATHERINGS, ALL THE THINGS THAT SHOULD BE DONE, THAT DR. ANTHONY FAUCI SAID WE SHOULD DO, LIMITING OUR SOCIAL ACCESS TO PEOPLE. WE’RE DOING EVERYTHING THEY’VE SAID. BUT FROM THAT, WHEN YOU HAVE A VERY FRAGILE POPULATION, IT’S GOING TO SPREAD LIKE WILDFIRE IF YOU DON’T BE ON TOP OF IT. WE DON’T KNOW — MAYBE IN PARTS OF THE STATE, WE COULD ISOLATE THAT A LITTLE MORE. THE MORE TESTING WE DO, THE BETTER ABLE TO CONTROL THIS HORRIFIC VIOLENCE.>>THE SENATE JUST PASSED PHASE II OF CORONAVIRUS STIMULUS MEASURES, CALLING FOR SICK LEAVE AND FAMILY LEAVE FOR MANY AMERICANS, FREE TESTING AND UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE AND THE EXPANSION OF FOOD SECURITY PROGRAMS LIKE S.N.A.P. IS IT ENOUGH, SENATOR?>>IT WASN’T ENOUGH. THAT WAS THE SECOND TRANCHE, WE SAID. THAT BEING SAID, IT’S GOING TO THE MEDICAL END WHERE WE NEED IT TO GO. THE FIRST THAT WE SPEND RIGHT NOW IS FOR TWO PURPOSES, FIRST OF ALL TO FIND THEY TYPE OF TREATMENT, IF YOU CONTRACT THIS VIRUS, HOW CAN WE GIVE YOU RELIEF, HOW CAN WE HELP YOU GET BETTER. NEXT, FINDING A WORKABLE VACCINE. THAT’S GOING TO TAKE A LITTLE BIT LONGER. WHEN YOU’RE DOING THAT, TREATING PEOPLE THAT ARE AFFECTED AND TRYING TO FIND A VACCINE, THAT’S YOUR FIRST AND FOREMOST. NEXT OF ALL, HOW ABOUT THE PEOPLE WHO HAD TO GO HOME, YOU SAY, HEY, WE’RE GOING TO CLOSE YOUR BUSINESS SO YOU HAVE NO PLACE TO WORK? THOSE ARE THE PEOPLE ON THE FRONT LINE. SENDING ME $1,000 IS NOT GOING TO HELP THE ECONOMY. SENDING THE PEOPLE THAT ARE GETTING SOCIAL SERVICES IS NOT GOING TO HELP, BECAUSE IT’S NOT CHANGING EXCEPT THE SOCIAL INTERACTION. WHAT WE NEED TO BE IS FOCUS ON PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN AFFECTED, THAT’S PEOPLE ON THE SMALL BUSINESSES FRONT LINES THAT ARE SENT HOME WITH NO HOPE, NO HOPE WHATSOEVER AND NO UNEMPLOYMENT COMPENSATION. WE NEED TO EXPAND THAT, WORKING OFF EXISTING PROGRAMS. AND WE CAN KEEP THIS MOVING. HAVING LONG TERM RELIEF, BASICALLY, FOR SMALL BUSINESSES THAT CAN SURVIVE, THAT DON’T HAVE THE CAPITAL LIKE LONGER CORPORATIONS, AND MAKING SURE, LINSEY, LARGE CORPORATIONS, IF THEY NEED LOANS, LOW INTEREST LOANS, BASICALLY, FROM THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT, WE CAN DO THAT. I’M JUST NOT IN FAVOR OF BILLING OUT FOR THE SAKE OF BILLING OUT — BAILING OUT PEOPLE WHO HAD THE GREATEST TAX BREAKS IN THE WORLD.>>WHAT ABOUT STATES SUCH AS YOURS, DO YOU THINK PEOPLE IN THOSE STATES HAVE A FALSE SENSE OF THE RISK?>>SURE, THEY GET A FALSE SENSE. WHEN YOU SEE THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OR THE GOVERNOR OF THE STATE OF WEST VIRGINIA SAYING, HEY, IF YOU WANT TO GO TO BOB EVANS TO EAT. THAT’S WRONG. NO, YOU SHOULD NOT. WHEN YOU HEAR THE PRESIDENT SAYING, YOU MUST BE DOING SOMETHING RIGHT IN WEST VIRGINIA, THERE’S NO CASES, YOU CAN BE IN TIER 2. WHEN IT HITS MY STATE, IT WILL BE MORE THAN TIER 1. IF SOMETHING HAPPENS, WE’LL BE THERE. THAT’S TOO LATE. SO HOPEFULLY WE’LL BE MOVED UP TO TIER 1, THAT WILL MEAN WE’LL HAVE THE SUPPLIES WE NEED AND THE TESTING AND ALSO THE RAPID RESPONSE. RIGHT NOW IT’S TAKING FIVE TO SEVEN DAYS IF YOU DO GET TESTED IN WEST VIRGINIA BEFORE YOU KNOW. ONE GUY CAME TO ME AND SAYS, JOE, IF I’M AS SICK AS I AM SEVEN DAYS FROM NOW, I MIGHT BE DEAD. SO THEY’RE CONCERNED. SO WE’RE DOING EVERYTHING WE CAN TO BRING THE ALERTNESS TO THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT THAT WE NEED YOU IN WEST VIRGINIA MAKING SURE THE MOST VULNERABLE PEOPLE IN AMERICA AREN’T LEFT BEHIND. AND IT’S NOT TOO LATE FOR THEM.>>AND YOU MENTIONED THE ELDERLY POPULATION THERE, 20% OF YOUR STATE IS OVER THE AGE OF 65 YEARS OLD. HOW WILL YOU HANDLE THIS PARTICULAR HIGH RISK GROUP?>>WELL, THAT’S THE THING. I’VE SAID THIS, ONE THING ABOUT OUR STATE IS THAT WE DO TRY TO LOOK OUT FOR EACH OTHER. AND WE TAKE CARE OF OUR NEIGHBORS. IF YOU HAVE AN ELDERLY PERSON LIVING WITH YOU, A RELATIVELY OR AN ELDERLY NEIGHBOR, TRY TO DO SOME SHOPPING FOR THEM, TRY TO HELP THEM SO THEY HAVE THE NECESSITIES THEY NEED TO SUSTAIN THEMSELVES. DON’T HAVE THEM GOING OUT IN STORES AND GOING OUT IN PUBLIC IF THEY DON’T NEED TO RIGHT NOW. IF WE CAN ALL BE A LITTLE BIT DISCIPLINED FOR THE NEXT TWO TO THREE WEEKS TO SEE WHERE THIS CURVE IS GOING TO GO, RIGHT NOW IT CONTINUES TO GROW. MORE PEOPLE ARE GETTING THIS DISEASE IN AMERICA. AND WE’RE GOING TO SEE MORE DEATHS FROM IT. WE WANT TO PREVENT THAT. AND YOU CAN ONLY DO IT BY BEING DISCIPLINED. BUT YOU’VE GOT TO HELP YOUR NEIGHBORS, HELP YOUR FAMILIES THAT ARE ELDERLY, ANYONE WHO HAS ILLNESSES, HELP OF THEM THAT’S THE MOST IMPORTANT THING WE CAN DO.>>CITY DWELLERS ARE GETTING A LOT OF ATTENTION AND RESOURCES. THERE ARE ALSO SPECIAL RISKS TO RURAL POPULATIONS WHERE HOSPITALS MIGHT BE MORE SPREAD OUT, FOR EXAMPLE. IS YOUR STATE GETTING THE RESOURCES IT NEEDS? YOU SAID YOU TALKED TO THE THE VICE PRESIDENT, FOR EXAMPLE, LAST NIGHT. WILL YOU HAVE ENOUGH TESTS?>>WE DON’T HAVE ENOUGH. WE ONLY HAVE 500 TESTS FOR THE WHOLE ENTIRE STATE OF WEST VIRGINIA, CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT? 500 IS ALL WE HAVE. AS I’M SPEAKING TO YOU NOW, THEY’RE SUPPOSED TO BE GETTING MORE TO US IMMEDIATELY. WE HAVE VERY FEW VENTILATORS AND WE HAVE A LOT OF RESPIRATORY PROBLEMS BECAUSE PEOPLE WORKED IN HEAVY INDUSTRY. ON TOP OF A PANDEMIC AND A VIRUS THAT ATTACKS BASICALLY THE LUNGS AND ALL THE THINGS THAT WE KNOW THAT THEY’RE VERY VULNERABLE TOO IN MY STATE. WE’RE HOPING THEY COME TO OUR RESCUE TO GIVE US WHAT WE NEED. WE HAVE HOSPITALS THAT WERE CLOSING. I’VE SAID, WAIT A MINUTE, NOT ONE HOSPITAL THAT WAS PLANNING ON CLOSING OR SHUTTING THEIR DOORS SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO SHUT DOWN DURING THIS PANDEMIC. IF THEY’RE GOING TO GO CLOSE LATER ON, THAT’S A DECISION TO BE MADE. BUT NOT DURING THE PANDEMIC. THE STATE AND FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SHOULD STEP TO THE PLATE.>>KEEP THE DOORS OPEN, AT LEAST FOR NOW. THE PRESIDENT HAS GIVEN HIMSELF HIGH MARKS FOR HIS HANDLING OF THIS CRISIS, I BELIEVE HE SAID IT WAS A 10 OUT OF 10. YOUR RESPONSE TO THAT?>>THAT’S NOT SO, NO. WE CANNOT DO IT, THERE’S NO WAY THE PRESIDENT CAN GIVE HIMSELF OR ANYONE ELSE — WE MISSED THIS THING. WE’VE MISSED IT BY MONTHS. DECEMBER. WE CAN’T SAY THAT, WORRY ABOUT THE STOCK MARKET, NOT A BIG DEAL, THIS AND THAT. YOU CAN’T GET HIGH MARKS FOR THAT. I’M SORRY, MR. PRESIDENT. LET’S WORK TOGETHER. I’M NOT BASHING PEOPLE OR BLAMING HIM BUT MY GOODNESS, DON’T PRAISE YOURSELF WHEN THE JOB THAT HAS BEEN DONE FOR THIS QUESTION IS NOT ADEQUATE. WE COULD HAVE BEEN ON TOP OF THAT CURVE, PREVENTED IT FROM ESCALATING TO THE POINT IT HAS.>>SENATOR MANCHIN, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR TIME, WE APPRECIATE YOU.>>THANK YOU.>>>AND WHEN WE COME BACK, THE WARNING FROM ORDINARY ITALIANS TO AMERICANS ABOUT WHAT COULD LIE AHEAD, AND SOON.>>>LATER IN THE SHOW WE SPEAK TO SEVERAL OF THE WORLD’S LEADING SCIENTISTS AS THEY BEGIN AN UNPRECEDENTED GLOBAL EFFORT TO MAP THE CORONAVIRUS AS THEY TRY TO SEE WHAT MEDICATIONS COULD BE USED TO CONTROL IT.>>>AND THE POWERFUL EARTHQUAKE DAMAGING BUILDINGS AND KNOCKING OUT POWER TO ONE STATE’S CORONAVIRUS HOTLINE.>>>BUT FIRST, THE CORONAVIRUS MYTHS OF THE DAY.

THEY’RE PRIMARY TOWER IS OUT OF COMMISSION RIGHT NOW. THEY’RE BRINGING IN A MOBILE TOWER WHERE AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLLERS CAN WORK TO MAKE SURE THAT THE AIRPORT KEEPS RUNNING SMOOTHLY EVEN THOUGH CLEARLY A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE NOT FLYING RIGHT NOW DURING THE CORONAVIRUS CRISIS. BUT FOR THE MOST PART THING ARE GETTING BACK TO NORMAL IN UTAH.>>OUR THANKS TO CLAYTON.>>>WHEN WE COME BACK, THE FIRST CONGRESSMAN TO TEST POSITIVE FOR COVID-19.>>>JOE BIDEN’S SWEEP TAKING EVEN MORE DELEGATES. HOW BERNIE SANDERS RESPONDED TODAY.>>>AND OUR LOOK AT THE >>>AS BUSINESSES ACROSS THE COUNTRY SHUT DOWN, FOR NOW MANY AMERICANS ARE LOSING JOBS AND WAGES. BEFORE THE CORONAVIRUS HIT, U.S. UNEMPLOYMENT WAS 3.5%. THE TREASURY SECRETARY HAS NOW WARNED SENATORS THAT WITHOUT A RESCUE PACKAGE, U.S. UNEMPLOYMENT COULD REACH 20%. BUT HE SAID, QUOTE, WE’RE NOT GOING TO LET THAT HAPPEN. MORE THAN 82 MILLION U.S. WORKERS ARE PAID BY THE HOUR AND MAY BE LOSING WAGES RIGHT NOW.>>>IT’S TOO SOON FOR NATIONAL UNEMPLOYMENT DATA ON THE CORONAVIRUS IMPACT. STATE FIGURES TELL A GRIM STORY. IN NEW YORK STATE, CALLS FOR UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE CLAIMS HAVE RISEN TENFOLD SINCE LAST WEEK.

IF APPROVED, THE FIRST CHECK COULD ARRIVE APRIL 6th.>>A SINGLE $1,000 CHECK COULD HELP SOMEONE PAY THEIR LANDLORD IN MARCH. BUT WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THAT?>>THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION REVEALING THEY’RE RESTRICTING FORECLOSURES AND EVICTIONS THROUGH APRIL AS A GROWING NUMBER OF AMERICANS FACE UNEMPLOYMENT. THE DOW IS NOW CURRENTLY BELOW IT CLOSED AT THE DAY BEFORE PRESIDENT TRUMP WAS INAUGURATED.>>>NAVY HOSPITAL SHIPS ARE PREPARING TO DEPLOY, ONE TO NEW YORK, THE OTHER TO THE WEST COAST.

THERE WERE NEW MEDIA REPORTS TODAY OF THE POSSIBILITY OF THE SO-CALLED SHIELD PLAN FOR THE CITY OF LONDON. LINSEY, THIS WOULD ESSENTIALLY LOCK US IN HERE IN LONDON, CONTAIN THIS CITY FROM THE REST OF THE COUNTRY. THE GOVERNMENT HAS EXPRESSED GROWING CONCERN OVER THE FACT THAT THE CASES IN LONDON ARE GROWING EXPONENTIALLY. THEY HAVE THE FASTEST GROWING NUMBER OF CASES ANYWHERE IN THE UK. THERE ARE REPORTS OF A PLAN TO, LIKE I SAID, SHIELD THE CITY FROM THE REST OF THE COUNTRY. BUT LINSEY, I SHOULD NOTE THE GOVERNMENT HAS NOT CONFIRMED THESE PLANS.

THAT WOULD BE THE FASTEST OF THE FASTEST, THAT WOULD BE ALMOST A MIRACLE.>>Reporter: SCIENCE’S BRIGHTEST MINDS TEAMING UP ON THIS MOONSHOT WITH REAL POTENTIAL TO SAVE SO MANY LIVES.>>WE ARE CERTAINLY CHEERING ON THE SCIENTIFIC COMMUNITY. ALTHOUGH THERE ARE ALREADY MORE THAN 7,000 CONFIRMED CASES OF CORONAVIRUS HERE IN THE U.S., MORE THAN 100 OF THOSE PEOPLE HAVE ALREADY RECOVERED. ABC NEWS HAS HEARD FROM SOME OF THE AMERICANS WHO WERE TESTED AND TALKED ABOUT THEIR EXPERIENCES, WHAT THEY’VE BEEN LIKE SO FAR, INCLUDING FROM ONE OF OUR OWN.>>SHE JUST CAME BACK TO TELL ME I’M GOING TO BE TESTED. THOSE RESULTS WILL TAKE FIVE TO SEVEN DAYS. THEY’LL TAKE THE TEST HERE, THEN IT WILL GO TO THE PRIVATE LAB TO BE PROCESSED. I THINK I’VE GOT A LOT OF QUARANTINE TIME AHEAD.>>I FACETIMED MY DOCTOR AND TOLD HIM ABOUT MY SYMPTOMS. THEY ASKED ME IF I HAD BEEN TO ANY OF THE COUNTRIES THAT ARE HIGH RISK, CHINA AND KOREA. I SAID NO. THEY ASKED ME IF I HAD BEEN IN CONTACT WITH ANYONE WHO WAS A CONFIRMED CASE FOR CORONAVIRUS. AND I ALSO SAID NO. IT FEELS VERY MUCH TO ME LIKE I HAVE A MILD FLU. AND I KNOW THAT THAT IS GOING TO — YOUR SYMPTOMS ARE GOING TO DIFFER FROM PERSON TO PERSON, THE SEVERITY IS GOING TO DIFFER FROM PERSON TO PERSON.>>I STARTED GETTING SHORT OF BREATH. I HAD A LITTLE — FELT LIKE JUST KIND OF HOT RIGHT HERE IN MY WINDPIPE AREA. AND MARCH 8th, I ASKED MY HUSBAND TO TAKE ME TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM BECAUSE I FELT HORRIBLE. I HAD THE COVID-19 TEST ON MARCH 8th. I DIDN’T GET IT BACK UNTIL MARCH 11th. IT WAS POSITIVE. I HAVE NO IDEA WHY I PICKED IT UP, I HAD NO INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL, NOTHING LIKE THAT. I’M DEFINITELY GETTING HEALTHIER, I’M HAPPY AND STRONG.>>MY SYMPTOMS CAME ON AS A DRY COUGH WHICH LED THEN TO A FEVER AND THIS EXTREME FATIGUE. NY BODY JUST KNEW SOMETHING WAS DIFFERENT, IT FELT DIFFERENT THAN ANYTHING I HAD FELT BEFORE. ONCE I GOT THE RESULTS ON SATURDAY, THE DOCTOR BASICALLY TOLD ME THERE’S NO WAY TO TREAT IT, YOU’RE TREATING THE SYMPTOMS. SO IF YOU HAVE SHORTNESS OF BREATH OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT, GO TO THE HOSPITAL, BUT OTHER THAN THAT, REALLY JUST NURSE IT AT HOME WITH WATER AND REST, THE MAIN THING I FEEL AT THE MOMENT IS A PRETTY BAD HEADACHE AND FATIGUE. I’M HOPING I TURN THE CORNER AND THAT IT GETS BETTER AND KEEPS GETTING BETTER. SO FAR IT SOUNDS LIKE IT. FINGERS CROSSED FOR THAT. YEAH, JUST REMEMBER, WE’VE GOT TO LOOK OUT FOR EACH OTHER.>>CERTAINLY SOME POSITIVE NEWS TO SEE PEOPLE WHO HAVE ALREADY TURNED THE CORNER. JOINING US NOW IS ABC NEWS CORRESPONDENT KAYLEE HARTUNG WHO WAS COVERING THE FIRST OUTBREAK OF THE CORONAVIRUS IN SEATTLE AND NOW TESTED POSITIVE. KAYLEE, HOW ARE YOU FEELING?>>Reporter: HEY, LINSEY, I AM FEELING SO MUCH BETTER. THIS WAS THE SORT OF SICKNESS THAT REALLY TOOK ME OUT FOR A DAY, BUT OTHERWISE ALL OF THE SYMPTOMS I FELT WERE THINGS THAT I WOULD PUSH THROUGH. ANY OTHER TIME IN MY LIFE, I WOULD HAVE SAID I’M FINE, I’M RUN DOWN, I NEED TO REST, BUT I CAN PUSH THROUGH ON THE BACK END. AND NOW I KNOW THAT THAT’S NOT AN OPTION FOR ME RIGHT NOW.>>THE PEOPLE WHO WE JUST HEARD FROM SAID THEY DIDN’T KNOW WHO THEY CAME IN CONTACT WITH OR HOW THEY MIGHT HAVE CONTRACTED THE VIRUS. YOU’RE UNFORTUNATELY IN THE SAME SITUATION.>>Reporter: YEAH, THAT’S RIGHT. I WAS IN SEATTLE FOR A WEEK REPORTING FOR ABC. AND WE WERE IN CLOSE PROXIMITY TO LIFE CARE, THAT NURSING HOME WHERE WE KNOW SO MANY PEOPLE HAVE DIED WITH THE VIRUS. BUT I DON’T KNOW WHO I CAME IN DIRECT CONTACT WITH WHO HAS SINCE TESTED POSITIVE FOR THE VIRUS. WE FELT LIKE WE WERE CAREFUL, TAKING PRECAUTIONS, REGULARLY WASHING OUR HANDS, STAYING AT SAFE DISTANCES. BUT APPARENTLY IT WASN’T ENOUGH.>>LET’S TALK ABOUT TESTING. IT’S BEEN AN ISSUE FOR SO MANY. YOU DESCRIBED A FEELING OF GUILT FOR BEING ABLE TO GET ACCESS TO A TEST EVEN THOUGH DOCTORS TOLD YOU INITIALLY THAT YOU DIDN’T NEED ONE AT FIRST.>>Reporter: YEAH, LINSEY, WE ALL KNOW AT THIS POINT THAT THERE’S A SHORTAGE OF TEST KITS, THAT ALL OF THE PEOPLE WHO WANT TO GET TESTED CAN’T GET TESTED. PEOPLE WITH SYMPTOMS LIKE MINE ARE BEING TOLD, DON’T GO TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM, DON’T GET TESTED, YOU WON’T GET ONE, THEY NEED TO BE SAVED FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE IN MUCH MORE SEVERE CIRCUMSTANCES. WELL, IN MY CASE I FOLLOWED THE PROTOCOL WE’RE ALL TOLD TO FOLLOW, TO CALL YOUR HEALTH CARE PROVIDER WHEN YOU START EXPERIENCING SYMPTOMS. WHEN I DID THAT, THEY SAID JUST WHAT YOU SAID, THAT I COULDN’T GET A TEST, MY SYMPTOMS WERE TOO MILD. I TOLD THEM I HAD BEEN IN KIRKLAND, WASHINGTON, THE EPICENTER OF THIS OUTBREAK IN THE U.S., AND TEN MINUTES LATER, WHILE I WAS FEELING DEFEATED AND REALLY CONFUSED AT WHAT TO DO NEXT, MY HEALTH CARE PROVIDER CALLED BACK AND SAID, ACTUALLY UPON FURTHER REVIEW OF YOUR CASE, BECAUSE OF WHERE YOU’VE BEEN, WE DO WANT TO TEST YOU. SO I SORT OF FEEL LIKE I’M ONE OF THE LUCKY UNLUCKY ONES WHO ACTUALLY WAS ABLE TO GET A TEST TO DETERMINE THAT WHAT I’M FEELING IS IN FACT CORONAVIRUS. AND THAT’S WHY IT’S SO IMPORTANT FOR ME TO SHARE MY STORY AND TO SHARE WHAT I’VE EXPERIENCED SO THAT ANYONE WHO IS FEELING LIKE ME, WHO CAN’T GET A TEST, CAN HAVE A REALITY CHECK TO SAY, THESE MILD SYMPTOMS, THINGS THAT YOU WOULD PASS OFF ANY OTHER TIME, LIKE A RUNNY NOSE AND CONGESTION, HEADACHE, BODY ACHES, THESE SYMPTOMS ACTUALLY EQUAL CORONAVIRUS. YOU DON’T HAVE TO HAVE DRY COUGH OR SHORTNESS OF BREATH, YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE SUFFERING SEVERE RESPIRATORY SYMPTOMS TO HAVE THIS VIRUS.>>AS YOU KNOW, RIGHT NOW THERE’S NO CURE. WHAT ARE DOCTORS RECOMMENDING BEYOND STAYING AT HOME TO GET BETTER?>>Reporter: YES, THIS RIGHT HERE, ME IN MY HOUSE, BY MYSELF. HYDRATION AND REST. THAT’S ALL THEY SAY TO DO, JUST LET TIME PASS.>>ALL RIGHT, KAYLEE HARTUNG, THANK YOU, FEEL BETTER, AND WE APPRECIATE YOU TAKING THE TIME TO TALK TO US.>>>WHEN WE RETURN, OF COURSE OUR DAILY CHECK-IN WITH ONE OF OUR FAVORITE FAMILIES STILL UNDER QUARANTINE AND SOME FEEL-GOOD STORIES FROM ACROSS THE COUNTRY, BECAUSE WE ALL SURE NEED THOSE NOW.>>>HELLO.

MORE THAN A WEEK AFTER THEY GOT OFF THE “GRAND PRINCESS” CRUISE SHIP IN CALIFORNIA, YOU SEE THEM CUTTING A LITTLE RUG THERE, THEY’RE ANXIOUS TO GET BACK HOME BUT HAVE BEEN KEEPING PRETTY ACTIVE. YESTERDAY MICHELLE TWEETED THIS VIDEO OF HER GRANDPARENTS DANCE TO GO ADAM LAMBERT AND HE RETWEETED IT. NO ONE MORE EXCITED THAN GRANDMA. WE’LL CHECK BACK WITH THEM TOMORROW.>>>WE END THIS HOUR WITH A BIT OF GOOD NEWS. IN THIS TIME OF SOCIAL DISTANCING SOME PEOPLE ARE TURNING TO GOOD OLD FASHIONED HOLIDAY CHEER. ALTHOUGH CHRISTMAS ISN’T FOR ANOTHER NINE MONTHS, PEOPLE ARE BEING ASKED TO PUT OUT THEIR CHRISTMAS LIGHTS SO QUARANTINED NEIGHBORS CAN HAVE THEIR SPIRITS LIFTED.>>>MOM TO THE RESCUE, MONEY IN AN — MONA TOOK TO FACEBOOK AND ASKED MULTIPLE GROUPS TO SEND GREETING CARDS TO HER DAUGHTER.

  1. It's time to take care of your health! Help strengthen your immunity and improve circulation! It's time to fight off infections caused by viruses and bacteria! Ozone gives life!
    The Ozone, released as an aerosol into the air, kills COVID 19, and not only for seconds. There are several ozone-enriched gel medications that work – and this is one of them. https://europeanpharmacyonline.com/product/ozone-factor-soft-gel-capsules/

  2. Giving people $1000 a month each imagine how much money they will spend? Better open the jobs to clean and disinfect everything! People need job ! $1000 won’t be enough to pay their bills!

  3. Tell more positives. This is extremely serious of course but tone down the fear!! So tired of the media. 🤦‍♀️

  4. The American president is on record saying Chinese are blaming America for starting the virus do you know what that means if other countries side with the Chinese I'm sure everybody remembers what happened to Germany when the other countries banded together and it's not like America is well-liked in the world right now so you know what that means if the Chinese and other countries decide to take action the virus will be the last thing you have to worry about

  5. If it is possible I will blame T for the delay of medical care in this crisis and led people die, I will blame him, because of his racism of China in all his policy and public speech and whole people in western country neglected the data and fact came from china, that this virus kills people. people are dying for this racism, as persistent, he only think about avoiding the criticism of his leadership in this crisis by turning media to the only country had survival experience of this crisis. This is murder !

  6. China hates us. Our way of life threatens their communism. I say that we pay China the 1.o7 trillion dollars that we owe them and cut off all ties. I will donate my stimulus money and match it

  7. THE 1995-2005 parents has raised their kids to be a bunch of selfish greedy lazy entitled losers. Living at home with their parents who didn't know how to parent.
    The GREAT GENERATION is leaving us and their great great great grandchildren are the USELESS GENERATION. No respect for anyone but themselves. Mainly the today's 16-25 year olds.
    Those were the years mothers raised their boys as girls.
    Now they know that's not the right way. Don't let boys play with dolls and dress in girls clothes. They're boys, not girls, they are different.

  8. SEND A 50 MEGATON HYDROGEN FLASH TO Beijing CHINA FOR A 4TH OF JULY GIFT FROM AMERICA U.S.A.
    We'll call it even for the COMMUNIST CHINA VIRUS.

  9. Celebrities are getting the virus yet they say they feel fine, yet there are thousands of deaths? if you don't see the deception, you're dumber than a box of rocks, keep buying toilet paper and chemically poisoned soap and sanitizer.

  10. The reporter "bated" the president about the China Virus remark. Nice going media! The fact is it did come from China. How about the Spanish Flu, where did that come from? The media just has to start something. I hate them!

  11. People who don't care to study the issues and the candidates, should not vote! Democracy cannot work when idiots vote for idiots!

  12. That's BS that people on low income disabled/retired are not affected by increased costs as we are isolated in home. It affects everyone! This guy is saying seniors need no additional help, during this time, financially

  13. Well in Trumps defense Athletes and Celebs are more important in the media’s eyes which is why they get test first. It sucks but he’s right it’s just how life works.

  14. I am really felt so sorry about the worse coronavirus situation in the world. 
    Our company wants to give some help to our clients for the prevention of the virus, as the coronavirus spread out so quickly, the demand for a face mask is increasing crazily, and this market is very chaos.
    We search for a very good factory in which they produce face mask.they got CE, FFP2, FDA.
    This KN95 has very good quality, but the unit price is expensive.EXW unit price is usd1.99
    We also can help for the shipment, Contact me by WeChat:artist-zgz or email:[email protected] vmaxpromotion . com​​

  15. And how does getting a test help one get better? There’s no cure for a flu… oh rest and relax, fluids, sleep, Herbs… right?

  16. You have some People that doesn't take the Corona virus serious until the come in contact with the disease or there family or there Associate. People is going to do what they wanted to do.A bunch of idiot heartless and don't use there senses, They with there naked body on a beach they all are stupid and dum to be doing that having a head with out a Brain. We of to continue to pray for our Nation God in still in Control be safe and be well to all God bless you all take care. From Shanton.

  17. Keep our eyes on God no matter what. Is it an accident that it keeps raining or that the overcast cloud's are over head everyday with these geoengineered cloud's? This is how they are perpetuating Covid -19. My messages are being taken down. My phone is being hacked.
    Please listen, this is unnatural weather.
    People need to understand that the elite are causing this to make money on capitalizing on us. We are people walking around with two slot machine handles walking on two legs cha-ching cha-ching…they are capitalizing on making us sick.
    Don't sell your home to the rich people. Sell it to the young couple or single mom and dad who are buying their fist home or buying another home after losing their home in the last mortgage crisis. Have your realtor require potential homeowners that are trying to buy your home write a letter as to their story to make sure you aren't selling to help these RICH money hungry home Hoarders who are making life worse for everyone. Please people wake up.
    Please pass this around. We are going into a depression that is man-made. Hold on to your pants, wig and everything because we are going on a greedy man made Ride.
    Listen to the YouTube video on The New Testament from Matthew to Revelations, you'll be shocked as to what was written about greed, man's state of mind and what we will go through. Don't lose heart because God's got this in the end…these people will burn for eternity. We won't have to, we will be in glory forever.
    Those that are the least will be the most in heaven oh, just remember that. Those that are the most onerous will be the least in Heaven.
    the Bible says that it is easier for a camel to get through the eye of a needle than it is for a rich man to be saved. Why, because they're in love with money and status. That is their God.

  18. Oh shut up about the race. If it came from America it would be called the American virus. Smh we got more pressing news than a race card

  19. people gathering as told in more than 10 people at once anywhere, is putting others at risk.. Dont be selfish and dumb, do your part people for everyones sake including your own.

  20. Interesting that only Unhealthy People Are Actually Dying from this Virus
    As those who are healthy are getting well.

    But Most Interesting That Those Who Are providing health care
    Like Doctors & Nurses are demonstrating that They Are Not Healthy Either

  21. 🙏🙏🙏🙏 I did pray the Lord to find a cure to make everybody still better to get rid of coronavirus.

    1:00:35 And by the way there's a cute short video of little girl and a big giant fluffy dog and it's kind of reminds of Beauty and the Beast and it's so cute 😍❤️💕🐶🕺💃

  22. This is really good against it.
    https://store.shopping.yahoo.co.jp/drikin/4901777-232327.html?sc_e=slga_pla_i_shp_02498

  23. ive said many times some are easily brainwashed. why do you think fox and trump cna keep pushing the bs narratives

  24. Once again, the media blowing up stories. The media is trying to destroy America! Why should I believe the Coronavirus? They lied about people dying from Vaping,, when Vaping can't kill anyone. So I don't trust anything reported by mainstream media. The boy that cried Wolf.

  25. China Virus is racist so what should we call Chinese food? Mexican food? Has everyone lost there minds in the news.

  26. What the president said is true and everyone knows it. He just said it like it is. He didn't say he agreed simply it's how it is and always will be with the rich getting health care the rest of us can't get. Annnd it was started in China. How is stating facts being racist? The only people making it racist are idiots. He didn't say Chinese created it or anything to that fact. He simply has said it was started in China.

    Based on blastomycosis infection is on the rise for both humans and pets, this issue can greatly compromise the pandemic we are now in. Having blastomycosis infection renders a otherwise healthy person (as pooch) with compromised immune system!!!

    How come States have not been also recording as report on its rise of Blastomycosis?

  43. What does where this virus came from had to do with ethnic bias? IT CAME FROM CHINA. The Chinese government didn’t disclose this infection for a long time. When was Chinese government trustworthy?

  46. If what I'm saying has you running to your therapy dog for a hug please call your doctor.
    Question, at what point is all the shelter in place, self quarantine, economic standstill going to cost more, cause more damage and more death than the Covid19?
    Obviously the answer is off in the future.
    Some cost to consider; suicide, alcoholism, domestic violence, credit ratings, business closures, bankrupting States and federal government for future services because to hell with all that if anybody's dying. As if the services don't save lives such as cancer treatments, food programs, schools, parks, public Safety, public works, etc. I can hear all the right winger saying government is only for military and a police state.
    I know there will be some people who would say, saving somebody's life is worth the collapse of the entire world. If that's true haven't the terrorists really won?
    These are probably the same people who have a total meltdown and are willing to spend about $50,000 when their pet is dying.
    At what point will people realize that death is part of life. So often people around a dying person make them feel guilty as if they're doing something wrong when really what they want to say is I'll miss you and I love you. Too often this shows up with dramatic efforts to save their life, such as running down to Mexico for cancer treatments and spending a fortune on Alex Jones supplements.
    The truth is people are dying everyday from all kinds of ailments, West Nile virus, Zika, Tuberculosis Measles, Meningitis, Whooping cough, Hepatitis, Lyme disease, Hantavirus, Plague, etc and we don't shut society down.
    So right now all the cheerleaders are rooting for team shut it down. A big campaign around the globe is the shelter-in-place quarantine and to hell with the economy that keeps us all fed, warm in winter, cool in summer. Shut it all down because people might die.
    Along the lines of, if it doesn't kill you it makes you stronger, at what point is propping up and insulating others make us weaker as a species?
    Now if you'll all excuse me I've got to drive my big gas hog around the neighborhood and then get back home to watch Fox news about how global warming is a liberal homo plot to make our children transgender.

  47. Are you kidding me? Why are you always so negative? Lyme disease, Spanish flu, Ebola? Now there is a problem by narrowing down the region from where the diseases breakout? Wow y'all need to watch how you look and sound. Bring us together!!!

  48. I agree we should all try n help to slow the spread of this virus. I can't help but feel that the ones in charge are keeping something from us. This looks like a weapon that either got accidentally released when was released on purpose but I feel they are lying to us about the severity or they just do not know that it may be more airborne then they believed they just don't want to put us into a panic even though I personally not panicking. The problem is going to be most of society is going from paycheck 2 paycheck and people can't go months without working at least not many I know so something is up I wish they would just be honest but that will never happen
