    Apparently congress has proclaimed themselves as nonessential. I would agree given their recent track record.

    Unbelievable congress should be in session we pay them to be. Has even one of them stepped up to forfeit their salaries? NO...we will remember this at the next election...Democrats cut their own throats and continue to do so.

      Because you hate him so it doesn't matter what he does, you'll say it's the wrong thing. If he does, he's wrong, if he doesn't he's still wrong.

    Every other advanced nation on earth has universal health care. The United States has Trump giving out universal body bags. You can be sure that the body bag tally is one that trump will certainly win. He always wanted to repeal the affordable care act and replace it with something cheaper. Promises made promises keep I guess.

    Travel is one of the last considerations to be talking about. I'm assuming she was talking about air travel. There is a tremendous amount of frivolous travel these days, IHO. Travel for work? - BS, we are supposed to be able to do almost everything through the net - if you believe the propaganda about our information liberation coming from the big corporations. Visit family? - Unless it is to care for family illness/care, is that really essential to the recovery of the nation? Travel for "pleasure and entertainment"? - Really? I can understand travel for shopping, eating, supporting local businesses, etc but that can all be done locally and should be to the largest extent possible. EDiT: please hammer me as hard as you want - I would like to hear reasonable arguments against what I think.

    Hydroxychloroquine is effective against Malaria and is a promising treatment for Covid-19... so why the reluctance... ? Answer: Because the Anti-Trump Scumbags will do anything to get rid of our President... including destroying the U.S. **Trump 2020 !!*

    Congress is always out of session, even when it is in session, especially when filled with Democrats. But mainly it's out of session because Nancy Pelosi has better things to do with her time for now. When she comes back the rest of the lemmings will also. Besides, isn't close proximity among human beings now a matter of survival? How would the two chambers of Congress function? Would they all have to wear masks? Wash their hands 12 times a day? Hold sessions remotely with Microsoft Teams?

    The GOP has to own their "Let Trump OJT his Administration" approach to governance; which failed to recognize the gravity of the office, his responsibility to all citizens & not just mindless [suspected]wyt supremacist pretending to be patriots.

    LIBERAL MASS MEDIA IS LYING TO AMERICA. IT APPEARS IN LIBERAL RUN STATES HOSPITALS ARE BEING MANIPULATED BY CDC. THEY ARE TOLD TO CUT EVERY STAFF HOURS BY 25%. ALL DIRECTORS ARE HAVING THIER SALARIES SLASHED 25%. ONLY ONE HOSPITAL IN A WHOLE LIBERAL STATE IS BUSY. ALL REST EMPTY. NO SURGERIES, NO OUT-PATIENT TESTING, NO SLEEP LAB. AND NO COVID PATIENTS. VIRGINA MASON ON THE WEST SIDE IS EMPTY. 44 VENTILATERS JUST SITTING. EMPLOYEES ARE BEING LAID OFF. WHEN THIS ALL STARTED THE CDC WOULD NOT LET HOSPITALS TEST FOR VIRUS. THEY HAD TO FOLLOW A SUPER STRICT ALGORITHM IN ORDER TO TEST, WHICH BASICALLY THEY WERE SLIGHLTY SICK THEY WERE ALMOST DEAD. SO IT SKEWED THE MORTALITY RATE TO MAKE IT LOOK SUPER HIGH AND THEY PROVOKED FEAR EVERYWHERE OF HOW DEADLY THE VIRUS WAS. THEY SAID HEY JUST HAD A SHORTAGE OF KITS. SO ONCE EVERYONE IS AFRAID, MASS BUYING AND GOVENORS WITH OTHER AGENDAS ARE LOCKING DOWN EVERYTHING DOWN. NOW THE CDC SAYS "OH LOOK EVERYONE CAN HAVE KITS!!!" and tests everyone so confirmed cases skyrocket AND THEY CAN SAY HOW FAST IT SPREADS. MOST LIKELY THIS HAS BEEN AROUND AND HALF OF STAFF HAVE ALREADY HAD IT AND DID NOT EVEN KNOW! THIS ENTIRE THING HAS TURNED COMPLETELY POLITICAL. IT IS NOT ANY DIFFERENT THAN SARS, MERS, H1N1 AND NO ONE REACTED LIKE THIS. THE TRUE MORTALITY RATE IS NOT EVEN THAT HIGH. IT DOES HAVE A HIGHER CONTAGION FACTOR THAN REGULAR INFLUENZA SO YOU CAN CATCH IT EASIER. BUT IT IS NOT DEADLY UNLESS ELDERLY WITH OTHER CO-MORBIDITIES, OR IMMUNE COMPROMISED. BUT THE FLU WOULD WIPE THEM OUT TOO.

Still interesting though that the CCP, who does not care AT ALL about the safety or well-being of its citizen slaves, was scared enough about this virus that it enforced brutal martial law and locked down over a hundred million of its own people for two months ... hmmmmm ... buuuuut ... we need to go back to work to prop up the stock market ... quarantine over!!!

    You know, she sounds almost normal in this video. The problem is that the country has no coherent strategy. Georgia governor just FOUND OUT YESTERDAY that asymptomatic people can infect others. With this level of disconnect and no strategic, comprehensive, national plan of action, we will be in semi-permanent shutdown for the near future. States that did not institute strict policies will continue to seed the infection throughout the country, leading to recurring outbreaks. If the country relaxes its stay-at-home measure, we will be in long-term economic disaster.

    They also don't distinguish between those that died from covid-19 alone and those that died from a complication due to covid-19 like a heart attack or pneumonia brought on or made worse by the disease but which killed them before the disease could.

    American politics seem so toxic. This report showcases how partisan politics is put ahead of the public interest. It is an agenda-ridden report that consistently casts doubt on scientific data, deflects from the presidentially led slow response to the pandemic, and puts economic interest ahead of public health under the guise of civil liberties. Without the lockdown all around the world millions and millions would have died from this pandemic. Everyone is worried about the economic damage this is doing whether on the right or the left. No one wants it to continue longer than necessary. America is the economic engine of the world so its recovery is critical for the world. The world knows this. This situation highlights the lack of preparation for a pandemic which scientists and thinkers, including Bill Gates, have been warning about for years. America was not prepared. The world was not prepared. The response was slow everywhere, though this is less forgiveable where politicians could see what was coming from the example of countries like Italy. This applies to America. It applies to Britain. What happened to people being honest, and taking responsibility for their mistakes? "I am sorry. I made a mistake. Now I'm going to do my best to put it right?" Perhaps politicians have never been able to do this, partly for political reasons since obviously opponents will jump on such admissions. Instead unproven treatments are waved as if they were established. No real alternative is offered except to open up sooner rather than later against all evidence and common sense. If the pandemic continues then economic progress will continue to be damaged even if the country is released from lockdown. If infections surge again the country will suffer more damage than if it had remained in lockdown for longer. America is the leader of the free world. We in Europe and elsewhere know this. Any thinking person appreciates it. We want leadership from America. Instead we have seen Donald Trump saying "seasonal flu is worse", "automobile accidents are worse", "one day it will all just go away", "America will be open at Easter", and this being backed up by Fox News. The clips of Trump have been seen by billions of people. What Trump says is in every news bulletin in the free world. Fox News clips are often included. I know no one will read my comment, and I know it comes from an angle rejected by most of the audience here. Nonetheless, politicians, like Donald Trump and yes, Nancy Pelosi, should be held accountable for the mistakes they made. The reasons for both the spread of the virus and the economic damage this caused should be examined obectively, in order to be better prepared in the future. Testing, tracking and quarantine are obvious areas for improvement. Preparedness is an obvious area for improvement. Political responses are an obvious area for improvement. The media response from such as Fox News is another area needing improvement. One thing is for sure. The world will see another potential pandemic within the lifetime of most who watched this report. Let's do it better the next time.

    Laura Ingram...what shall we do with the independent journalists whose cameras tell no lies about the empty hospitals ? What about those of us who know what a simple matter it is to skew data so that it says what some distant arrangement by WHO globalists want it to say ? What about the reports that it is a bad cold? Anybody with half a clue knows that an older adult can get pneumonia and die from a cold and a lousy immune system. What about out knowledge that the virus was patented by we know who and that autopsies can be falsified to say what somebody wants them to say?
