I'M LESTER HOLT. >>> CONFRONTATION BETWEEN BIDEN AND A

AUTO WORKER IN MICHIGAN >>> AND INSPIRING

AMERICA. A LONG LOVE AFFAIR WITH THEIR TEAM AND

EACH OTHER CAPTURED EACH NIGHT ON THE KISS CAM.

>> Announcer: THIS IS "NBC NIGHTLY NEWS" WITH LESTER HOLT

>> GOOD EVENING, EVERYONE PARTS OF A QUIET

SUBURB JUST OUTSIDE NEW YORK CITY HAVE BEEN DECLARED A

CORONAVIRUS CONTAINMENT ZONE, A FIRST IN THIS CRISIS

STATE OFFICIALS CLOSING SCHOOLS, HALTING GATHERINGS AND

DEPLOYING THE NATIONAL GUARD IN THE TOWN OF NEW ROCHELLE

IT IS CENTER OF A VIRUS CLUSTER WITH MORE THAN A HUNDRED

CASES OF COVID-19. AGAIN, OUR REPORTING TEAM IN PLACE AROUND

THE WORLD. LET'S START WITH RON ALLEN.

>> Reporter: THE HEART OF NEW ROCHELLE, A CITY OF SOME 70,000

JUST NORTH OF NEW YORK VIRTUALLY ON LOCK DOWN TONIGHT BECAUSE OF

WHAT GOVERNOR CUOMO SAYS IS THE LARGEST CLUSTER OF CORONAVIRUS

CASES IN THE COUNTRY, AT LEAST 108 AND SURGING HIGHER, MORE

THAN DOUBLE THE NUMBER IN NEW YORK CITY >> THIS IS LITERALLY A

MATTER OF LIFE OR DEATH. THAT'S NOT ON

OVERLERHETORICAL STATEMENT. >> Reporter: NOW

OFFICIALS ORDERING A CONTAINMENT ZONE CENTERED AROUND A

LOCAL SYNAGOGUE WHERE A RABBI AND OTHERS HAVE TESTED POSITIVE

SMALL BUSINESSES LIKE RESTAURANTS AND FOOD STORES STILL OPEN.

>> IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO CLARIFY THAT THIS IS NOT AN

EXCLUSION OR QUARANTINE ZONE. NO ONE IS PROHIBITED

FROM ENTERING OR LEAVING THE AREA >> Reporter: THE

NATIONAL GUARD WILL DEPLOY TO HELP CLEAN NECESSARY BUILDINGS,

DELIVER SUPPLIES TO RESIDENTS IN THE ZONE. >> I REALLY CAN'T

BELIEVE THAT IT HAPPENED I'VE NEVER EXPERIENCED

ANYTHING LIKE THIS >> Reporter: LOCAL OFFICIALS URGING CALM,

SAYING THE GUARDS WILL NOT BE ESTABLISHING MILITARY-LIKE CHECK

POINTS MANY OF THE CASES LINKED NOO A NEW

ROCHELLE RESIDENT AND HIS FAMILY, A LAWYER HOSPITALIZED

IPCRITICAL CONDITION WITH UNDERLYING HEALTH ISSUES

HIS WIFE AND TWO CHILDREN HAVE ALSO TESTED POSITIVE.

HUNDREDS HERE WHO MAY HAVE BEEN IN CONTACT WITH THE INFECTED

RESIDENTS ALREADY HAVE SELF-QUARANTINED >> I THINK THERE'S A

LOT OF CONFUSION RIGHT NOW ESPECIALLY BECAUSE WE'RE NOT AWARE OF

WHAT'S GOING ON. >> RON JOINING US NOW FROM NEW ROCHELLE.

WHAT'S THE PLAN TO TEST RESIDENTS WHO LIVE INSIDE THAT ZONE?

>> Reporter: LESTER EVEN SOME OF THE RESIDENTS WHO HAVE

SELF-QUARANTINED SAID THEY'VE NOT BEEN TESTED YET

SO THE PLAN IS BRING A MOBILE SATELLITE LAB HERE AND TEST PEOPLE

ON THE SPOT. OFFICIALS HAVE LONG WARNED THAT MORE

TESTING WILL VERY LIKELY REVEAL MORE CASES OF THE VIRUS SO

THE NUMBERS HERE MAY VERY WELL GO UP. >> AS THIS CRISIS

RIPPLES ACROSS THE COUNTRY A WAVE OF NEW PRECAUTIONS FROM

SCHOOL CLOSURES TO MORE MAJOR EVENTS CANCELED AS THAT

CRUISE SHIP CONTINUES TO UNLOAD THOSE SICK AND THOSE WHO COULD BE

ILL. >> Reporter: ESCORTED THE SICK AND ELDERLY

ARE AMONG THE FIRST TO DISEMBARK. BUT THE NIGHTMARE AT

SEA EXTENDING TO SHORE AS MORE THAN 2,400 PASSENGERS WILL NOW

SPEND TWO WEEKS IN QUARANTINE SOME MOVED TO MILITARY

BASES. >> THIS WAS KIND OF DISHEARTENING BECAUSE,

YOU KNOW, WE'VE GOT BILLS TO PAY WE'VE GOT A FAMILY TO

TAKE CARE OF AND FEED. >> Reporter: PASSENGER CARRIE HAS STAGE 4

CANCER AND HAS ALREADY MISSED ONE CHEMO SESSION.

NOW IN QUARANTINE SHE DOESN'T KNOW HOW SHE'LL GET TREATMENT

NEXT >> I'M HOPING THAT THE CANCER ISN'T GROWING

WHILE THIS OTHER POTENTIAL PROBLEM EXISTS

>> Reporter: IN WASHINGTON STATE AN UNFOLDING CRISIS

AT THE LIFE CARE NURSING HOME, THE EPICENTER OF THE

OUTBREAK, 55 CONFIRMED CASES AND 71 OTHERS SHOWING SYMPTOMS AS

TWO SEPARATE NURSING HOMES REPORT ADDITIONAL DEATHS.

>> THE SPREAD IN THE COMMUNITY IS PROBABLY MUCH WIDER THAN THE

TESTING SUGGESTS TO DATE PROBABLY AS MANY AS 1,100 CASES.

AND 6 WEEKS FROM NOW THAT NUMBER COULD BE IN EXCESS OF 70,000.

>> Reporter: WITH THE NUMBER OF CONFIRMED CASES AND DEATHS

NATIONWIDE CLIMBING MORE STATES ARE DECLARING EMERGENCIES.

LARGE EVENTS LIKE THE COACHELLA MUSIC FESTIVAL NOW

POSTPONING UNTIL OCTOBER BECAUSE OF CORONAVIRUS FEARS.

AND MANY AMERICANS TAKING PRECAUTIONS THIS RIDE SHARE DRIVER

CREATING A PROTECTIVE BUBBLE IN LOS ANGELES ONE

RESTAURANT TAKING TEMPERATURES AT THE DOOR, TURNING ANYONE

AWAY WITH A FEVER. >> SO MANY PEOPLE THINK THIS IS DEATH

SENTENCE AND IT'S JUST NOT. >> Reporter: MARK

JORGENSON AND HIS WIFE TESTED POSITIVE FOR THE VIRUS.

>> THERE'S REALLY NO REASON TO PANIC OVER THIS

YOUR ODDS OF GETTING IT ARE SMALL, AND IF YOU DO GET IT YOUR

ODDS OF RECOVERY ARE VERY GREAT >> Reporter: BUT

TONIGHT HOSPITALS AND GOVERNMENT AGENCIES ARE TAKING NO CHANCES

AS SCENES LIKE THIS PLAY OUT AT SEA AND ONSHORE.

THE OFFICIAL NUMBER OF CORONAVIRUS CASES ON THE SHIP BEHIND ME

REMAINS AT 21 BUT DOCTORS EXPECT THAT NUMBER TO RISE

>> AND MIGUEL, LIFE AROUND US CONTINUES TO CHANGE

THERE'S LATE WORD TONIGHT ABOUT MORE COLLEGES CANCELING

CLASSES. WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT THAT

>> Reporter: WELL, LESTER, JUST YESTERDAY WE TOLD YOU MANY

CLASSES HAD BEEN CANCELED FOR THE WEEK OR EVEN MONTH BUT

WE'RE LEARNING SOME UNIVERSITIES ARE EVEN SHUTTING DOWN FOR THIS

SEMESTER OFFICIALS SAY EXPECT MORE OUTBREAKS AND

CLUSTERS OF THE ILLNESSES BUT IN GENERAL MOST PEOPLE

RECOVER QUICKLY. >> TO KNOW THANK YOU.

>>> AND TONIGHT THE VIRUS IS CAUSING SERIOUS AND GROWING

DISRUPTIONS FOR THE NATIONS AIRLINES SEVERAL ANNOUNCING

MORE FLIGHT CANCELLATIONS AND BIG CUTS IN AIRFARES

HERE'S STOP COSTELLO >> Reporter: IT'S AN ALL-OUT EFFORT TO

CONVINCE AIRLINE PASSENGERS THAT PLANES ARE CLEAN AND SAFE

IN A VIDEO RELEASED DELTA UNVEILING A NEW FOGGING DISINFECTANT

>> IT CAN FIX THE SURFACES AS SOON AS IT'S APPLIED

IT'S HIGHLY AFFECTED AGAINST MANY COMUNICHABLE DISEASES

INCLUDING CORONAVIRUS. >> Reporter: PLANES HALF EMPTY WITH

BUSINESS AND FAMILIES CANCELING TRAVEL PLANS.

THE CEO OF DELTA AIRLINES TODAY SAID THEY'LL HAVE TO PARK

SOME PLANES. >> WE HAVE SEEN A 25% TO 30% DECLINE IN NET

BOOKINGS AND ARE PREPARED FOR IT TO GET WORSE.

>> Reporter: DELTA, AMERICAN AND UNITED ALL CUTTING BACK ON

U.S. AND INTERNATIONAL FLIGHTS. THE CEO OF SOUTHWEST

NOW SAYS THE CORONAVIRUS IS HAVING A GREATER IMPACT ON

TRAVEL THAN 9/11 >> 9/11 WASN'T AN ECONOMICALLY DRIVEN

ISSUE FOR TRAVEL IT WAS MORE FEAR, QUITE FRANKLY.

AND I THINK THAT'S REALLY WHAT'S MANIFESTED THIS TIME

>> Reporter: THE NATION'S AIRLINES INSIST AMERICA IS

STILL OPEN FOR BUSINESS BUT AIRLINES DROPPING AIRFARES WELL

INTO THE SUMMER. NEW YORK TO ATLANTA 46% CHEAPER.

SAN FRANCISCO TO NEW ORLEANS, 60% OFF L.A. TO DENVER, DOWN

73%. >> WE'VE SEEN A SHIFT IN DEMAND AWAY FROM

INTERNATIONAL DESTINATIONS TOWARD MORE DOMESTIC

DESTINATIONS >> Reporter: WHILE U.S. AIRLINES ARE

WAIVING TICKET CHANGE AND CANCELLATION FEES CONGRESS IS WARNING

MOST TRAVEL INSURANCE DOES NOT COVER CORONAVIRUS

CANCELLATIONS BECAUSE THE THREAT WAS KNOWN AS OF MID-JANUARY.

LESTER >> ALL RIGHT, TOM COSTELLO, THANK YOU.

AND AS THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION DEALS WITH THIS CRISIS IT'S

KEEPING A VERY SHARP EYE ON WALL STREET AFTER SOME WILD SWINGS

TODAY THE DOW FINALLY CLOSING UP 1,100 POINTS MAKING UP SOME

GROUND KRISTEN WELKER REPORTS ON THE WHITE HOUSE'S

RESPONSE SO FAR. >> Reporter: PRESIDENT TRUMP TRYING TO CALM

FEARS DURING A VISIT TO CAPITOL HILL. >> WE'RE DOING A GREAT

JOB WITH IT. IT WILL GO AWAY. JUST STAY CALM

>> Reporter: THE PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE COMING AS HE

PERSONALLY PITCHED REPUBLICAN SENATORS ON HIS IDEAS TO BOLSTER

THE ECONOMY. ACCORDING TO ADMINISTRATION AND

SENATE SOURCES AMONG THE MEASURES FLOATED A PAYROLL TAX CUT

THROUGH THE END OF THE YEAR AND EXPANDING PAID LEAVE

>> IT WAS A GREAT MEETING. THERE'S GREAT UNITY

WITHIN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY. >> Reporter: AND WHILE

SOME REPUBLICANS HAVE TRADITIONALLY OPPOSED CUTTING THE PAYROLL

TAX CUTS BECAUSE THOSE TAXES FUND SOCIAL SECURITY, TODAY SOME

SEEM SEEMED TO SIGNAL THEY'D BE OPEN TO IT

>> WELL, I THINK THE PACKAGE NEEDS TO BE NEGOTIATED

>> Reporter: BUT THE PRESIDENT COULD BE ON A COLLISION COURSE

WITH DEMOCRATS WHO ARGUE A TAX CUT WOULD NOT HELP EVERYONE.

>> WE CAN ONLY SUPPORT AN INITIATIVE THAT PUTS FAMILIES FIRST

AND NOT TRICKLE DOWN SOLUTIONS. >> Reporter: THE

PRESIDENT DID NOT PROVIDE SPECIFIC INFORMATION ABOUT HOW

MUCH THE PLAN WOULD COST OR WHEN IT WOULD BE FINALIZED

ONLY SAYING HE'LL ANNOUNCE MORE DETAILS SOON

LESTER >> KRISTEN WELKER AT THE WHITE HOUSE.

THANK YOU. >>> AND NOW TO THAT SITUATION IN ITALY

IT'S A COUNTRY ON AN UNPRECEDENTED LOCK DOWN

OFFICIALS TAKING THAT DRAMATIC STEP TO TRY AND STOP THE SPREAD OF

CORONAVIRUS LEADING TO REMARKABLE SCENES TONIGHT.

ICONIC TOURIST LANDMARKS DESERTED NBC'S MATT BRADLEY HAS

DETAILS. >> Reporter: TONIGHT THE FAMOUS SWEET LIFE

IN ITALY NOW FACING PERHAPS ITS TOUGHEST TEST WITH CORONAVIRUS

DEATHS JUMPING TO 631 NOW OVER 10,000 TESTING POSITIVE

NATIONWIDE OFFICIALS PLACING AN ENTIRE NATION OF 60

MILLION PEOPLE IN LOCK DOWN RESTAURANTS AND BARS

DESERTED, ORDERED CLOSED AFTER 6:00 P.M. PEOPLE MANDATED TO

KEEP AT LEAST 3 FEET AWAY FROM ANYONE ELSE OR FACE-UP TO 3 MONTHS

IN JAIL. THOUGH PEOPLE ARE ALLOWED TO GO TO WORK

AND PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION IS STILL RUNNING, NOW

ICONIC LANDMARKS ARE EERILY EMPTY THIS WHOLE AREA SHOULD

BE FILLED WITH TOURISTS BUT EVERY PLACE FROM THE

COLOSSEUM TO HERE AT THE FOUNTAIN NORMALLY YOU'D BARELY BE ABLE

TO WALK HERE ITALY'S GOVERNMENT HOPES TO FOLLOW

CHINA'S LEAD WHERE TONIGHT THERE IS GOOD NEWS IN THE COUNTRY

WHERE THE CORONAVIRUS ORIGINATED THREE MONTHS AGO

THAT OUTBREAK NOW CONTROLLED ENOUGH THAT CHINESE LEADER XI

JINPING VISIT WUHAN TODAY. MOST PATIENTS GET MILD

SYMPTOMS AND RECOVER IN TWO WEEKS NEARLY THREE FORTIES

OF CHINA'S 84,000 PATIENTS HAVE NOW RECOVERED WITH THE

NUMBER OF CASES AND DEATHS IN CHINA DROPPING

THE WORLD IS WATCHING TO SEE WHETHER THESE TOUGH TACTICS CAN HELP

HALT THE SPREAD OF THIS DEADLY DISEASE. THE ITALIAN PRIME

MINISTER SAID EARLIER TONIGHT HE COULD IMPOSE EVEN STRICTER

RULES. >> AN ENTIRE COUNTRY IN LOCK DOWN

MATT, THANK YOU. >> WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK IN 60 SECONDS WITH MY

LOOK INSIDE A LAB TRYING TO DEVELOP A DE

>>> TONIGHT I WANT TO TAKE YOU TO THE FRONT LINES IN THE FIGHT

AGAINST CORONAVIRUS. INSIDE ONE OF THE MANY PHARMACEUTICAL

COMPANIES RACING TO DEVELOP FACT SCENES AND TREATMENTS AND

OFFER SOME REASON FOR HOPE. IN A LAB NORTH OF NEW

YORK CITY, THERE IS PALPABLE ANTICIPATION THAT A DEFENSE

AGAINST, EVEN TREATMENT FOR CORONAVIRUS IS CLOSE

AT HAND. >> WE ARE OPTIMISTIC BECAUSE WE'VE DONE

THIS APPROACH TO TREAT MANY HUMAN DISEASES SEVEN DIFFERENT

DISEASES. >> THE COMPANY REGENERON IS IN A

GLOBAL RACE AMONG PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANIES TO TACKLE

CORONAVIRUS. >> OKAY. SO IF YOU TAKE A LOOK

UNDER THE MICROSCOPE -- >> SCIENTISTS HERE ARE

CREATING PSEUDOCORONAVIRUS. MEANING THE VIRUS

MINUS ITS ABILITY TO REPLICATE, ALLOWING THEM TO LEVERAGE WHAT

THEY BELIEVE IS THEIR SECRET WEAPON. MICE HOUSED IN THESE

PROTECTIVE STRUCTURES, WHOSE IMMUNE SYSTEMS HAVE BEEN GENETICALLY

ALTERED TO MIMIC THOSE OF HUMANS. THE BRAIN CHILD OF

GEORGE ENKOPOLIS. >> THE IDEA YOU CAN CHALLENGE THESE MICE

WITH ANY DISEASE, POTENTIALLY GET AN IMMUNE CURE.

>> IN A TYPICAL VACCINE LIKE THE FLU SHOT, FOR EXAMPLE, THE

INJECTION CONTAINS A SMALL AMOUNT OF THE VIRUS TO CAUSE YOUR

BODY TO DEVELOP ANTIBODIES AGAINST IT. BUT THAT CAN TAKE

WEEKS. IN THIS CASE, REGENERON ESSENTIALLY

EXPOSES THE MICE TO THE PSEUDOCORONAVIRUS. THEY THEN CREATE THE

ANTIBODIES THAT, WHEN DELIVERED TO HUMANS, PROVIDE IMMEDIATE

PROTECTION. >> THEY ARE IN THE PROCESS OF TESTING

EACH ANTIBODY TO HOW WELL IT BLOCKS THE VIRUS.

OVER THE COURSE OF THE NEXT SEVERAL WEEKS, THEY WILL CHOOSE THE

BEST ONES, CREATE THIS COCKTAIL, PUT IT IN THESE CELL LINES THAT

CAN BE SCALED UP INTO THESE GIANT VATS AND OFF TO THE RACES.

>> IT'S THE SAME PROCESS REGENERON BROUGHT TO THE FIGHT

AGAINST EBOLA, AN ANTIBODY TREATMENT THAT DRAMATICALLY

BOOSTED SURVIVAL RATES IN AFRICA. >> THE IMPOSSIBILITY

OF PRODUCING SOMETHING THAT CAN CHANGE THE COURSE OF THE EPIDEMIC

IS EXCITING. >> THEY ARE TARGETING TESTING BY LATE SUMMER

AND IS OPTIMISTIC ENOUGH IT PLANS TO SIMULTANEOUSLY BEGIN

PRODUCING 200,000 PREVENTIVE DOSES PER MONTH.

>>> DO I CALL IT A MEDICATION OR A VACCINE YOU'RE WORKING

ON? >> YEAH, SOME PEOPLE WOULD CALL IT A

PASSIVE VACCINE. THAT IS, WE VACCINATE THE MICE AND TAKE THE

IMPORTANT PROTEIN, THE ANTIBODY FROM THE MICE AND GIVING IT TO A

PERSON. IT'S A VACCINE IN THE SENSE THAT IT'S USED

TO PREVENT THE DISEASE. BUT ALSO AT HIGHER

DOSES IT CAN BE USED AS A THERAPEUTIC, SOMETHING TO TREAT THE

DISEASE. >> AS YOU KNOW, THE PHARMACEUTICAL

INDUSTRY HAS BEEN UNDER FIRE FOR DRUG PRICES.

>> YES. >> IS THIS GOING TO BE AFFORDABLE ONCE IT'S

PRODUCED? >> IT DOESN'T DO ANYBODY ANY GOOD IN

THIS KIND OF SETTING OR ANY KIND OF SERIOUS HEALTH SETTING NOT TO

MAKE THE PRODUCTS AFFORDABLE. >> REGENERON'S

APPROACH IS JUST ONE OF MANY PROMISING DEVELOPMENTS IN AN

ALL-HANDS-ON-DECK EFFORT BY BIOTECH COMPANIES.

>> THIS IS PROBABLY THE BIGGEST MOMENT FOR OUR INDUSTRY IN TERMS

OF EVERYBODY IN THE INDUSTRY WANTING TO DO THE RIGHT THING.

THEY WANT TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE TO PEOPLE AND THEY WANT TO SHOW

THE WORLD. >> THE VACCINE, IF APPROVED, WOULD OFFER

SEVERAL MONTHS' PROTECTION FROM THE VIRUS AND WOULD LIKELY

BE MADE AVAILABLE TO HEALTH CARE WORKERS FIRST.

TO GET SOME PERSPECTIVE ON WHERE WE ARE IN THIS CRISIS

LET ME BRING IN OUR CHIEF MEDICAL CORRESPONDENT DR. JOHN

TORRES. IT WAS ONLY A FEW MONTHS AGO WE WERE

TALKING ABOUT HOW DEADLY THE FLU SEASON IS.

IT KILLS MORE THAN THE CORONAVIRUS. SO WHY IS THIS VIRUS

SO MUCH MORE WORRISOME? >> LESTER, BOTH THE

FLU AND CORONAVIRUS ARE RESPIRATORY ILLNESSES.

THEY HAVE SIMILAR SYMPTOMS AND THEY CAN BOTH BE DEADLY.

THE BIG DIFFERENCE IS HERE WE KNOW THE FLU. WE HAVE A VACCINE FOR

IT AND MEDICATION THAT'S WORK WELL AND WE KNOW THE FLU IS

SEASONAL. IT WILL START TO WIND DOWN COME SUMMER.

BUT WHEN IT COMES TO THE CORONAVIRUS, IT'S STILL MOSTLY A

MYSTERY. WE DON'T HAVE ANY TREATMENTS.

IT APPEARS TO BE MORE DEADLY THAN THE FLU, ESPECIALLY IN THE

ELDERLY. AND IT CONTINUES TO SPREAD FASTER THAN WE

EXPECTED. THE HOPE IS THAT IT WILL ALSO BE A

SEASONAL VIRUS, BUT, LESTER, ONLY TIME WILL TELL.

>> IT'S WHAT WE DON'T KNOW THAT CAN BE SO DISTURBING.

>> EXACTLY. >> DOCTOR, THANK YOU. >>> TONIGHT

UNPRECEDENTED RECOMMENDATIONS FROM THE NURSING HOME

INDUSTRY TO KEEP OUT THE CORONAVIRUS BY CURTAILING FAMILY

VISITS. AS MORE AMERICANS WORRY ABOUT THEIR

LOVED ONES. SAM BROCK HAS THE STORY.

>> Reporter: TONIGHT AT THE MORRIS LIFE HEALTH SYSTEMS IN WEST

PALM BEACH, THE MOMENT YOU ENTER THE BUILDING, NEW STEPS TO

PROTECT THE VULNERABLE ELDERLY. >> WE MUST TAKE EVERY

PRECAUTION TO ENSURE THEIR SAFETY AND THEY'RE EXPECTING THAT

FROM US. >> Reporter: NATIONWIDE, THE

NURSING CARE INDUSTRY LEADERS TODAY ISSUING NEW RECOMMENDATIONS TO

STRICTLY LIMIT VISITS, SCREENING ALL STAFF AND CONTRACTORS, EVEN

DISCOURAGING SOCIAL VISITS BY FAMILY AND FRIENDS.

ARTHUR AND NOLA ARE HEARTBROKEN AT THE PROSPECT THEY MIGHT

NOT BE ABLE TO SEE THEIR FAMILY OVER PASS OVER HOLIDAY.

>> I'D RATHER NOT SEE THEM IF THERE IS ANY TROUBLE.

I'D RATHER THEY STAY HOME, BE SAFE, AND WE TALK ON THE PHONE

EVERY NIGHT. >> THERE IS AN EMPTINESS.

>> Reporter: IN PORTLAND, OREGON, BONNIE CAN'T VISIT HER

HUSBAND GERALD WHO IS SUFFERING FROM PARKINSON'S.

>> I FEEL CLOSE TO TEARS A GREAT DEAL OF TIME BECAUSE I DON'T

KNOW WHAT'S HAPPENING TO HIM. I WORRY ABOUT HIM

TERRIBLY. >> Reporter: EXPERTS SAY FOR THE

2.5 MILLION AMERICANS WHO LIVE IN NURSING HOMES OR ASSISTED

LIVING FACILITIES, THE RISK IS JUST TOO HIGH. >> THIS IS NOT THE

COMMON COLD. THIS IS NOT INFLUENZA. IT'S MUCH MORE SERIOUS

IN THE ELDERLY. >> Reporter: ARE YOU NERVOUS ABOUT THE

CORONAVIRUS? >> I AM NOT NERVOUS BECAUSE WE ARE TAKING

EVERY STEP POSSIBLE. >> Reporter: SHORT-TERM PRECAUTIONS

IN ORDER TO SAVE FAMILIES IN THE LONG RUN.

SAM BROCK, NBC NEWS, WEST PALM BEACH. >> SOMETHING A LOT OF

FOLKS ARE STRUGGLING WITH. VERY SAD.
