The U.S. reported its first death from the coronavirus in Washington State. The FDA took steps to speed laboratory tests for the virus as unexplained infections in three states suggested the disease is spreading on the west coast.

    • @indicakitty Lady you need to check yourself in to the nut house. There is a thing called a faucet and water comes out of it. You can also use a plastic bag over your head make sure its secured tightly around the neck. LOL

    at 36:51 our dear leader has to be praised no matter what then lie with a straight face

  9. Hurry up !!! Pinocchio is looking hungry . Big Mac time ya know : )

  10. The more they keep telling us not panic – I am starting to panic.

  11. Hope you all recall your language art skills from high school and can do inference , critical thinking, context analysis, and read between the lines.

  12. The media are vultures.

  13. I want to be addressed by medical professionals!

  14. He looks sleepy. I am glad your our president. Thank you

  15. just do not travel at all

  16. “I would go to Walter Reed to see them so often….” Really? How often? More than twice?

  17. and what about the healthy military persons getting it


  19. 48:58 – 51:10 is highly revealing if one has an ear to hear:

    “For the most part and the people who get in trouble and ultimately, tragically die from coronavirus are people who are Elderly, and/or have Underlying conditions: Heart Disease, chronic lung disease, diabetes, obesity cause of the difficulties in breathing” Dr Fauci

    Unpack and digest those data points. America the country of living w/ underlying conditions: Heart Disease (vessel) 121.5 mil Chronic Lung Disease (COPD) 35mil Diabetes (Pre) 100mil Obese/overweight 160mil typically overlapping conditions.

    America’s elderly population, over 65, 52mil.

    The US population is 331mil with 5% as the most vulnerable to death, 16,5mil Americans at baseline. 66,3mil Americans could warrant hospitalization up to intensive care. These are baseline predictable numbers taken on their face. The potential here should not be undervalued.

    These numbers, on their face, are seismic when viewed under the context of a community based spread of a pandemic level virus where a conceptual vaccine is 12-18 months in the future.

  20. Wearing masks, even rudimentary ones, effectively cut off mass transmission and saved lives in China where I live in. Please citizens of the US, consider that.
