ROBERT MULLERS REACTION TO THE

CONTROVERSIAL LIFELINE THE

PRESIDENT THREW ROGER STONE.

PLUS, OPENING UP.

WHY OMAROSA IS TAKING A RISK TO

COME ON THE PROGRAM TO TALK

ABOUT TRUMP.

>>> JUST MOMENTS AGO, FLORIDA

SHATTERING ITS CORONAVIRUS CASE

RECORD FOR A SINGLE DAY AND THE

NUMBERS ARE STAGGERING.

THE STATE REPORTING 15,300 NEW

INFECTIONS.

IT IS THE HIGHEST NUMBER ON

RECORD AND IT BRINGS THE STATES

TOTAL NUMBER OF CASES TO MORE

THAN 269,000.

SAM IS JOINING ME FROM LAKE BAY

NA VISTA, FLORIDA, WEARING A

MASK, WHICH IS MORE IMPORTANT

THAN EVER.

ANY SENSE OF REACTION FROM THE

OFFICIALS AND PEOPLE THERE TO

THESE STAGGERING NEW NUMBERS?

>> MOST PEOPLE YOU TALK TO,

THEIR MOUTHS DROP WHEN YOU TELL

THEM 15,300 NEW CASES TODAY.

IN TERMS OF PUBLIC OFFICIALS,

THE GOVERNMENT NOT EXPECTED TO

HOLD A CONFERENCE TODAY.

HE DID YESTERDAY.

15,300 TODAY.

TAKING THE STATES TOTAL TO

ABOUT 270,000.

THE BIGGEST PREVIOUS SINGLE DAY

HIGH WAS CALIFORNIA FOUR DAYS

AGO, AROUND 11,600.

NEW YORK IN MID MARCH AT ITS

PEAK HIT ABOUT 11,500.

THIS IS WAY ABOVE THAT.

HOWEVER, THEY DID A LOT MORE

TESTS IN THIS LATEST BATCH.

THERE WERE 140,000 TESTS.

SO ALEX, IF YOU LOOK AT THE

POSITIVITY RATES HERE, THEYVE

BEEN GOING DOWN THE LAST FOUR

DAYS.

IT WAS 20.7% FOR THE STATE

SEVERAL DAYS AGO THEN DOWN TO

ABOUT 15.

YESTERDAYS BATCH, 13.6%, SO IF

YOURE GOING TO TAKE ANY SILVER

LINING OUT OF THE UNBELIEVABLY

OFF THE CHARTS STAGGERINGING

NUMBERS RIGHT NOW, ITS THING

FACT A LOWER PERCENTAGE OF

PEOPLE ACROSS THE STATE ARE

TESTING POSITIVE.

TWO POINTS.

ONE, YOU SEE DISNEY WORLD.

AS THESE NUMBERS ARE EMERGING,

WHAT A JUXTAPOSITION, THEYRE

ALLOWING VISITORS BACK INTO THE

MOST POPULAR THEME AND RESORT

PARK IN THE COUNTRY RIGHT NOW U

AS CASES ARE SURGING.

THE VIDEO WERE SEEING COMING

OUT OF DISNEY WORLD AT THE

MOMENT ARE SHOWING SMALL CROWDS,

LOTS OF SOCIAL DISTANCING, BUT

STILL, JUST THE IDEA THAT THINGS

ARE OPENING NOW AS CASES ARE

EXPLODING, SHOCKING MINDS.

THE OTHER IS, LOOK AT MESSAGES

GOING ON IN FLORIDA WITH THE

GOVERNOR.

WHAT HE IS NOT TALKING ABOUT IS

MANDATORY MASK OR LOCKDOWNS. COMPARE THAT TO TEXAS, WHICH

COMPARE THAT TO TEXAS, WHICH

JUST CROSSED 250,000 CASES.

THE GOVERNOR SAID BOTH HES

THINKING ABOUT A LOCKDOWN SHOULD

THIS CONTINUE AND HE HAS ALSO

REQUIRED MASKS, SO VERY

DIFFERENT CONTRAST IN MESSAGING

IN WHAT LEADERS ARE DOING AS

THESE TWO STATES, TEXAS AND

FLORIDA, ARE WATCHING CASES

SKYROCKET.

>> IT DEFIES LOGIC WHEN YOU

THINK ABOUT THE SCIENCE AND HET

RISKS.

QUICKLY, HOW STEADY HAS THE FLOW

OF TRAFFIC BEEN INTO THE

ENTRANCE THERE TO DISNEY WORLD

BEHIND YOU?

>> YOU KNOW, ITS HARD TO GAUGE,

ALEX, SIMPLY BECAUSE THE WAY

THEY HAVE IT STRUCTURED, THIS IS

THE MAIN ENTRANCE, BUT WE HAVE

TO GO A MILE OR TWO SBOT COMPLEX

TO GET TO THE THEME PARKS AND

RESORTS.

STEADY TRAFFIC.

TODAY, THERES NO RAIN.

YESTERDAY, IT WAS POUR INGING, S

WOULD EXPECT MORE NUMBERS TODAY

THAN YESTERDAY.

BUT IT HASNT BEEN GANG BUSTERS

FROM WHAT WE CAN TELL.

THANKFULLY SO GIVEN WHATS GOING

ON WITH THE RATE OF TRANSMISSION

IN FLORIDA.

SAM BROCK, THANK YOU FOR THAT

REPORT FROM FLORIDA.

JOINING ME NOW, DR. NATALIE AZAR

WITH A WELCOME TO YOU.

I KNOW WERE GOING TO TALK ABOUT

A NUMBER OF THINGS IN A MOMENT,

BUT CAN YOU PUT THESE FLORIDA

NUMBERS INTO PERSPECTIVE?

ARE YOU SURPRISED?

THIS JUMP IN CASES, OVER 15,000

IN A DAY.

COME ON.

>> YEAH, ALEX, ITS A LOT AND

THERE WAS A LOT TO UNPACK THERE

IN SAMS EXCELLENT REPORTING.

I WANT TO HIGHLIGHT THE SILVER

LINING THAT THE PERCENTAGE

POSITIVITY IS GOING DOWN, WHICH

IS WHAT YOU WANT TO SEE AS MORE

TESTING HAPPENS.

BUT THAT NUMBER NEEDS TO GET

SIGNIFICANTLY LOWER.

IT NEEDS TO DROP TO BELOW 5%

BEFORE WE CAN FEEL COMFORTABLE

THAT FLORIDA IS GOING IN THE

RIGHT DIRECTION AND JUST A POINT

ABOUT THE WHOLE IDEA OF THIS

LOCKDOWN.

REMEMBER, THIS IS A SHORT-TERM

FIX.

THIS IS NOT A LONG-TERM

SOLUTION.

MAKING THE MANDATING OF MASKS

EVEN MORE IMPERATIVE FOR THE

STATE OF FLORIDA.

>> OKAY, SO YOU THINK MASKS WILL

DO IT, SOCIAL DISTANCING WOULD

HELP A LOT.

I REMEMBER YOU WORKING IN NEW

YORK CITY IN A HOSPITAL.

I KNOW YOU SPENT YOUR BIRTHDAY

THERE IN APRIL.

AND THIS IS WHEN THERE WAS THAT

SHORTAGE OF ICU BEDS AND

VENTILATORS.

THINGS WERE SO CRITICAL AT THAT

TIME.

HOW CAN THINGS TURN AROUND IN

FLORIDA, TEXAS AS A WELL, LIKE

THEY DID HERE IN NEW YORK?

>> WELL, ALL OF THAT, BY THE

WAY, THAT SURGE WAS HAPPENING I

THINK IN THE MIDST OF OUR HE

WILLTIVE SHELLER IN PLACE.

SO YOU KNOW, I THINK FOR THE

STATES THAT ARE BEING HARDEST

HIT RIGHT NOW, MOST PUBLIC

HEALTH EXPERTS WHO HAVE WEIGHED

IN HAVE SAID THAT NOTHING SHORT

OF A TEMPORARY LOCKDOWN WILL PROBABLY DO THE TRICK, ALEX.

PROBABLY DO THE TRICK, ALEX.

AS YOU USE THE PROVERBIAL GENIE

OUT OF THE BOTTLE NUMEROUS

TIMES, YOURE GOING TWO STEPS

FORWARD AND FIVE STEPS BACK WHEN

YOU JUST START MANDATING MASKS

AND SOCIAL DISTANCING NOW.

ITS A BIT OF A A QUICK SAND

SITUATION FOR THOSE STATES AND I

THINK THOSE EXTREME MEASURES

MIGHT NEED TO BE ENACTED.

AGAIN, A SHORT-TERM FIX, THEN

RETRYING THIS EXPERIMENT OF

REOPENING, DOING IT WITH THE

PROPER PRECAUTIONS IN PLACE AND

RIGHT NOW, THE NORTHEAST IS KIND

OF A MODEL OF HOW THATS

WORKING.

I LIVE IN NEW JERSEY.

OUR GOVERNOR WATCHES THE METRICS

VERY, VERY CAREFULLY.

WEVE KIND OF PULLED BACK ON

CERTAIN ASPECTS OF OUR

REOPENING.

WHEN WE SAW NUMBERS GOING UP,

YOU HAVE TO BE AHEAD OF THIS.

YOU HAVE TO BE AHEAD OF THIS

VIRUS.

WE KNOW JUST HOW CHALLENGING ONE

IT IS.

>> YEAH, ABSOLUTELY.

DONT GO TOO FAR.
