>>> NOW TO THE LARGEST PUBLIC

HEALTH CRISIS IN THE MODERN ERA

OF THE UNITED STATES.

TONIGHT OUR COUNTRY CONTINUES TO

LEAD THE WORLD IN CORONAVIRUS.

WE REPRESENT 4% OF THE GLOBAL

POPULATION.

WE HAVE 25% OF THE CORONAVIRUS

ON THE PLANET.

IN THE LAST 24 HOURS, THIS

COUNTRY SAW ANOTHER 73,169

CONFIRMED CASES.

THATS ANOTHER SINGLE-DAY RECORD

IF YOURE COUNTING.

ALONG WITH THE ESCALATING RATE

OF INFECTION, IN ABOUT 40 OF OUR

50 STATES, THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE

HOSPITALIZED NOW RISING.

COVID TRACKING PROJECT SAYS ITS

NOW OVER 56,000, 56,000 PEOPLE

IN HOSPITALS JUST ABOUT SIX

MONTHS AFTER OUR FIRST EVER

HOSPITALIZATION.

THAT SAID, THE GREATEST PUBLIC

HEALTH CRISIS AS WE SAY IN THE

MODERN ERA WAS AGAIN TODAY NOT

THE LEAD TOPIC AT THE WHITE

HOUSE.

THE PRESIDENT DID STAND BETWEEN

TWO TRUCKS TODAY FOR AN EVENT

ABOUT DEREGULATING AMERICAN

INDUSTRY.

AND AGAIN TODAY HE TRIED TO

CONVINCE THE COUNTRY HOW GREAT

THINGS WERE AND WILL AGAIN BE.

WILL.

>> MY ADMINISTRATION HAS ALSO

ELIMINATED MASSIVE REGULATORY

BARRIERS IN OUR BATTLE AGAINST

THE CHINA VIRUS.

WERE NOW MAKING VENTILATORS FOR

COUNTRIES ALL OVER THE WORLD.

NO ADMINISTRATION IN HISTORY HAS

REMOVED MORE RED TAPE MORE

QUICKLY TO RESCUE THE ECONOMY

AND TO PROTECT THE HEALTH OF OUR

PEOPLE.

SO WE HAVE MANY EXCITING THINGS

THAT WELL BE ANNOUNCING OVER

THE NEXT EIGHT WEEKS, I WOULD

SAY.

THINGS THAT NOBODY HAS EVEN

CONTEMPLATED, THOUGHT ABOUT,

THOUGHT POSSIBLE.

>> A FEW HOURS EARLIER, HIS

PRESS SECRETARY MADE THIS

REMARKABLE COMMENT ABOUT HER

BOSSDETERMINATION TO OPEN

SCHOOLS IN THIS COUNTRY DESPITE

VIRUS CASES SOARING, DESPITE THE

RISK TO STUDENTS AND TEACHERS.

>> WHEN HE SAYS OPEN, HE MEANS

OPEN IN FULL, KIDS BEING ABLE TO

ATTEND EACH AND EVERY DAY AT

THEIR SCHOOL.

THE SCIENCE SHOULD NOT STAND IN

THE WAY OF THIS.

THE SCIENCE IS ON OUR SIDE HERE.

WE ENCOURAGE FOR LOCALITIES AND

STATES TO JUST SIMPLY FOLLOW THE

SCIENCE, OPEN OUR SCHOOLS.

>> TONIGHT NPR IS REPORTING THE

CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL WILL

NOT RELEASE NEW SCHOOL REOPENING

GUIDELINES THIS WEEK.

THAT WAS PROMISED TO US BY VICE

PRESIDENT PENCE.

NOW THEYRE PROMISING IT BEFORE

AUGUST.

AS OF TODAY, DATA ONCE AVAILABLE

TO THE PUBLIC HAS DISAPPEARED

FROM THE CDC WEBSITE AFTER THE

TRUMP ADMINISTRATION SHIFTED

CONTROL OF THE INFORMATION TO

HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES.

THERE IS ONE INDICATION THE

ADMINISTRATION MAY KNOW JUST HOW

SERIOUS THIS SITUATION IS.

IT IS TONIGHT IN THE FORM OF A

NEW REPORT FROM THE CENTER FOR

PUBLIC INTEGRITY.

THEYRE SAYING ITS OBTAINED A

SECRET WHITE HOUSE DOCUMENT THAT

HAS 18 STATES IN WHAT INTERNALLY

THEYRE CALLING THE RED ZONE FOR

COVID-19 CASES.

THE DOCUMENT WARNS THERE MAY BE

A NEED TO RE-ADOPT MORE

STRINGENT MEASURES.

MEANWHILE THE DEBATE OVER

MASK-WEARING RAGES ON.

30 STATES HAVE NOW ISSUED

STATEWIDE ORDERS.

COLORADO AND ARKANSAS ARE THE

LATEST TO DO SO.

AND FOR THE ARKANSAS GOVERNOR,

THATS A MAJOR WALK-BACK.

THEN THERES GEORGIA.

THAT STATES GOVERNOR, BRIAN

KEMP, IS NOT ONLY REFUSING TO

MANDATE THE PUBLIC WEARING OF

MASKS.

TONIGHT HE IS SUING TO TRY TO

STOP ATLANTA MAYOR KEISHA LANCE

BOTTOMS FROM DOING SO.

GEORGIA IS ONE OF THE MANY

STATES REPORTING A SURGE IN

VIRUS CASES, AND THE ATLANTA

MAYOR HAS THE VIRUS, WHICH HAS

ALSO LEFT HER HUSBAND VERY ILL.

NOT LONG AGO SHE ISSUED THIS

RESPONSE, SAYING, QUOTE, AS OF

TODAY, 3,104 GEORGIANS HAVE DIED

AND I AND MY FAMILY ARE AMONGST

THE 106,000 WHO HAVE TESTED

POSITIVE FOR COVID-19.

A BETTER USE OF TAXPAYER MONEY

WOULD BE TO EXPAND TESTING AND

CONTRACT TRACING.

IF BEING SUED BY THE STATE IS

WHAT IT TAKES TO SAVE LIVES IN

ATLANTA, THEN WE WILL SEE THEM

IN COURT.

CORPORATIONS CONTINUE TO TRY TO

PROTECT THEIR CUSTOMERS AND

THEIR WORKERS.

TODAY THREE MORE RETAILERS, CVS,

TARGET, AND PUBLIX TELLING THEIR

CUSTOMERS YOU CANT SHOP THERE

WITHOUT A FACE COVERING.

DR. ANTHONY FAUCI, WHO ACTUALLY

SPOKE WITH TRUMP YESTERDAY FOR

THE FIRST TIME IN TWO MONTHS,

WAS OUT AGAIN TODAY WITH EVEN

STRONGER WARNINGS ABOUT

REOPENING OUR COUNTRY TOO SOON.

BECAUSE HES BEEN SIDELINED BY

THE WHITE HOUSE PUBLICLY,

FAUCIS WARNING CAME DURING A

CONVERSATION ON FACEBOOK.

AS YOU WILL QUICKLY FIGURE OUT,

HE APPEARED ALONGSIDE MARK

ZUCKERBERG.

>> WE DO HAVE A SITUATION NOW.

ITS A MIXED BAG.

YOUVE GOT TO DO IT CORRECTLY.

YOU CANT JUMP OVER STEPS, WHICH

IS VERY PERILOUS WHEN YOU THINK

ABOUT REBOUND.

AND THE PROOF OF THE PUDDING IS

LOOK WHATS HAPPENED.

THERE REALLY IS NO REASON WHY
