    To all the people who are waiving this off like its nothing because “it’s only serious in old people” – 40 is not old. Neither is 70. It’s serious period. No matter how old you are. Take precautions.

    Thanks for your good work on impeachment, Dan. Best health to you and yours.

  3. At least he could get a test. Most can’t.

    • @An Ds they are free at the hospital my significant other works at. If you have symptoms or have been in contact with a confirmed case they test you. Only about 1/7 are coming back positive most people that think they have it actually have the flu or other cold strain.

    • @Tom No. This is actually happening. This is not a hoax like your king Trump said!!!

      Jazz Jazz – yeah, but he had to drive interstate to get one! That’s more work than a lot of people CAN do. A lot of people don’t even have a car.

      Jazz Jazz He had to fight /b persistent to get a test.

      OF COURSE HE got the test hes a rich Bolshevik communist trump hating jew HE’S AN ELITE THEY COME FIRST IN OUR COUNTRY.

    The way he was treated is the same way one of the first patients in Italy is said to have fone through. Going to emergency and being sent home. This is scary.

  5. The crazy thing is, how can you possibly know if you have been in contact with anyone who has it? For them not to test you for that reason, is dangerous.

    • @dfnkjaws
      We all need to either move under ground into cities like in that Mars movie “Total Recall”?
      or build domes over each one of our homes, shouldn’t be a big deal, right?
      Or we can wait for it to pass thru our systems normally in 2-3 days, and I wouldn’t want anyone
      to have to go through that!

    • @Mike Boyd that’s not the case for everyone….this is a very unpredictable virus. That’s partly what makes it so scary. If it was only dangerous/lethal to the elderly (like the flu is) then it wouldn’t be as big of a deal. This is killing people in their 30s and 40s….a lot of them with NO PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS!

    • @dfnkjaws
      I’m sorry for all of your friends? I don’t even know anyone, that knows anyone!
      But with a family as large as mine hopefully I’ll have some dead folks to talk and brag about soon?
      Maybe even get some donations or a new car. This whole “made for tv” crisis could
      really pan out! LOL

    • @Mike Boyd what is wrong with you? This isn’t a joke. Who would want to brag about loved ones dying from this terrible virus?!?

    • @dfnkjaws
      Some tv watching zombie that sees
      how the celebs are treated when they
      lie about it.

  6. What a Great guy !! I wish you a speedy recovery , along with your wife and 3 children. Get better soon my friend. 👍 👍

    • Prayer answered, thanks. Now about all those civil liberties we just foolishly gave away?………oops

  7. Paul Gallagher | March 16, 2020 at 9:39 AM | Reply

    Obviously he caught it from someone that probably was not included in the confirmed cases, and likely didn’t know they had it. He then passed it on to who knows how many people. This is why the epidemic is about to explode. The hospitals are about to be overrun.

    • Don’t worry Nunes says go to the Pub. I guess enough alcohol you won’t care.

    • Zachary Shahan | March 16, 2020 at 10:15 PM | Reply


    • Pulse2AM Really? Did Nunes really say that? What does he possibly think he gains from causing death by being such a numbskull? I can’t get over how much power is in the wrong hands in the U.S. Please, please vote out the Republicans, you guys! The world needs a strong international coalition. Europe is at the mercy of the Russians without you. Gasp.

    • Why isn’t he dead in a heap in the street? Somebody’s been lying? MSM, strikes again!

  8. US goverment failed in this battle from beginning

  9. Shana Simmons | March 16, 2020 at 10:14 AM | Reply

    Every news station should keep pushing that truth that not everyone can get the test Trump is lying he probably has coronavirus to and hiding it infecting other’s

    • @Kram Snave – I think it is time for you to lick a doorknob, just to prove all the smart people wrong.

    • Shana, exactly! I do NOT believe anything he or his administration says. I would not be surprised if the bonehead in chief does have this corona virus. Seen Melania Ivanka or Jared lately?

    • Giacomo de Gasparis | March 17, 2020 at 4:12 AM | Reply

      @Alfred Nueman There would be a kind of poetic justice in that. I said a while back that maybe this virus will do what the Dems couldn’t. That outcome would fit the bill, as would people finally seeing how useless, inept and dangerous he is.

    • Giacomo de Gasparis The danger with that would be his ‘believers’ would consider him a martyr. Please, please, vote them off the island, guys! And then in five years, keep fighting to keep a mid-center Democrat in office. Be careful of any extremes.

      well why cant we get test because the Democrats ….. Yes those traitors SENT ALL OF OUR MEDICAL JOBS TO CHINA! Yes bill Clinton’s NAFTA TREAT …. CHINA MAKE 97% OF ALL OUR ANTI BIOTICS AND 95% OF OURtest strips. THANK A DEMCORAT FOR SELLING OUT THUS COUNTRY TO CHINA.

    Thank you Daniel Goldman for letting people know your story.

  11. PREZ Lies to US even when OUR LIVES DEPEND ON IT?????? HOAX? REALLY? he is the hoax

  12. Glenda Graves | March 16, 2020 at 10:24 AM | Reply

    Trump didn’t get tests from the WHO because he couldn’t get a kickback or financial support from the WHO. Follow the money. Follow his insults and you will see the underlying problems in leadership. Vote!

    • I think you might be correct. The only other explanation besides kickbacks is stupidity. Oh, wait, this is the Thump Administration. Okay, it was kickbacks and stupidity.

    • I do think Trump is positive if he took the test; Again, If???

  13. There are millions of tests available that were created by the Germans and recommended by the World Health Organization. Thump called this a hoax, a conspiracy by Democrats, a flu and told his followers to go to work.The government wasted time spreading Thump’s lies to calm the stock market. The markets crashed because of the lies.Then the real crap hit the fan and the virus popped up in twenty-seven states. Thump still refused to use the German test. Instead they wanted US companies to develop a test. More wasted time. All they have to do is release the German test and use the American test as more are produced. The governor of New York asked for the WHO tests to be given to them because of community spread. The Thump Administration’s refusal to do so led directly to this man and maybe hundreds of thousands more spreading the virus to their families and their communities around this country. Of course a lot of this could have been avoided if Thump’s jealousy had not led to dismantling President Obama’s Pandemic Response Team. So, much for being a stable genius.

    • Are people actually advocating for 330 million test kits everyday for the rest of the hoax?
      Can we ever get back to our life liberty and pursuit of happiness?
      Supid tv watching sheep go: “baaah!!!

    • Mike Boyd – Is that what you understood from the video? You almost rate a Darwin Award. Welcome to our new normal brought to you by the incompetent Trump team. MAGA!

    Mr. Goldman, I so appreciate your work throughout the first impeachment of Donald Trump. My very best wishes for you and your wife’s full and rapid recoveries.

    • John Caulfield | March 16, 2020 at 12:41 PM | Reply

      He was very good during the hearings. Smart guy. I wish him the best. We as a country need more people like him.

    • Rapid recoveries? Wait, what about all of the much promised piles of dead burning bodies in the street?
      You mean no one even gets very sick from this “made from tv” virus? Oh well, maybe next hoax!

    “Only serious for old ppl”….well, how will you feel if you catch the virus and infected your grandmother who then dies….too many selfish ppl on this planet!!

    • *that happens every single year during flu season*

    • Supa-Lu 92-thaWizard | March 16, 2020 at 3:18 PM | Reply

      Paul Wilson but government buildings across the country doesn’t happen every year and that’s the nuance

    • Stig Petersen | March 16, 2020 at 7:20 PM | Reply

      Paul Wilson sorry, you dont what you talk about…..in italy 15-18% of ppl above 60yo die who get this virus, it is far more contageus. Pls, study the subject before you spread pocket philosophy….when did 12-15mio americans die from a winter flue?
      I know how severe some flue is, this is way worse….and ppl who dont care to catch it, just be sure you dont transfer it to elderly, because almost 1 in 5 die from it. US will be in deep trouble WHEN it will be spreading. No sick leave pay for workers, none have real medical insurance.
      If I could, I would start a morchuary company in the larger cities in US, they will have awesome business next few months….

    • How will you feel when folks jumped off a bridge in depression over a minor cold?

    • My grandmother is going to live forever, and if she ever dies? I am going to blame it on someone else just like you!
      Who needs critical thinking skills anymore, that’s why we have “smart” phones, right?
      Mental illness of paranoia fear and OCD wiping are the new style and culture.
      We need roughly 330 million Americans x 365 days = 120,450,000,000 or one a day for a year.
      And we need them overnighted,
      piece of cake – Trump can write a iou
      Hurry up! (time’s wastin’)

    Isn’t it nice to have a car and the money to be able to go out of town to get tested. WHAT HAPPENS TO ALL OF THOSE PEOPLE WITHOUT THIS CUSHION. SHAME ON EVERY REPUBLICAN. HAVE YOU LEARNED YOUR LESSON YET AMERICA.

    Well this interview started out pleasant and took a “Dark Turn” very quickly!… Profit over human lives is EXACTLY what’s happening with the Development & Dispersion of this life saving test kit right now!…. 🤬

    • Airick Anderson it’s the only reason I can think of for why he wouldn’t allow states’ labs to develop their own tests and why he refused the WHO’s offer of their kits that every other country has been using for weeks! Profit. He needed time to set us his deals aka extortion plans with the manufacturers.

    • Airick Anderson | March 17, 2020 at 2:11 PM | Reply

      @jaykay1053 Yep!… Total disregard of Human Life and that my friend, is America’s President and our Severely Corrupt Government doing what they do best – NOTHING!… 😞

  18. People who were taking children to Disney parks this weekend should be arrested for reckless child endangerment.

    • Why?
      Covid, is not really dangerous to children.
      It is irresponsible to go to populated places in general. but to call it child endangerment is just hyperbole.
      It would be grand parents endangerment, if anything.

    • Megaball Powerball | March 16, 2020 at 2:10 PM | Reply

      ruth depew All Disney Parks are Closed.

    • Disneyland/world is closed.

    • Ruth, folks with a compromised immune system, and some elderly folks are most at risk. Staying away from public spaces and large gatherings will help prevent the virus from wildly spreading. It is a form of containment so that our hospitals do not get overwhelmed with patients. We can build the best bombs, but we do not have the capacity to provide the tens of thousands of respirators that would be necessary to assist those patients whose lungs have failed them due to this virus.

    • Ignorant fools, complete unfit parents.

    When someone who profiles like Daniel Goldman can’t get tested; it does not bode well for anyone else. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daniel_S._Goldman

  20. Right now, 40% of people who are hospitalized with the virus in the US are between the ages of 20-40. It is NOT just old people.
