3:06 am
news medical contributor. dr. siegel, so many people have been talking about -- you know, we have heard from the federal government that the tests are there we're going to have millions available. and, yet, fast forward to today, it's almost impossible to get a test. >> extremely difficult and unfortunate situation. especially when you consider, steve, that i'm telling people not to go to the hospital with these symptoms. when they call me and say i have a cough, shortness of breath or a high fever, which is are the drastic symptoms i say don't come see me. my hospital doesn't want doctors to be expolicies to this either. if they go to the hospital. we have to put patients in special areas where they may contact coronavirus from somebody else. steve: take up a bed that might be needed for somebody later. >> disgraceful situation. south korea is testing 20,000 people a day. steve: in parking lots. >> cdc admits only tested 11,000 people since this whole thing began. if i could test everybody, i could calm fears. brian, you could say to me i have a small cough, can i be
3:07 am
tested? i say sure. i test everybody for hiv. why can't i test people i want to test just to make sure they don't have it? brian: what you are getting at the high percentage of people that say this is a serious illness and you could lose your life that number with the flu is very low. this is higher because we have low numbers to go by. the more numbers that get tested that show more people don't have it then all of a sudden you realize this isn't terminal and maybe the numbers are a lot less and the chances of dying are a lot smaller. >> exactly right. so well stated. that's what happens happened in south korea where they tested over 300,000 people. people have mild symptoms. people have no symptoms. people may just have a cough it. doesn't mean you have all of the stuff we talk about. may not have the high fever. if you have part of it and a mild case you probably will get better. ainsley: i was reading in new rochelle they have a drive-thru testing center where if you feel have you it can you go in under quarantine. what is nyu and private
3:08 am
hospitals. >> nyu developed its own test. cleveland clinic own test. the issue is getting it approved it's the same exact quality. we are about a day or two away at nyu. cleveland clinic even closer. nebraska where i visited they have their own test. 8 hours to run. using it all the time. it's been verified and then send the results to cdc for conversation. but really we need better than that well, quest and labcorp are involved in this ainsley but relevant not really up and running yet. i call them every single day i want tests to go these labs. brian: when you say not up and running they don't have the kits. they have the infrastructure but not the kits. >> the swabs. i can send them the swab but can't test it. they don't have the reagents and chemicals. ainsley: if someone is watching that feels like they may have symptoms. who do they call to get these tests? >> if you are watching and think you may have these symptoms. you have to deal with this on the phone or telemedicine, make
3:09 am
a phone call to your local physician or hot line or cdc: i'm telling you what the symptoms to look out for. it's shortness of breath. a productive cough. and high fever. those are the classic symptoms. brian: true or false. hospital wants to see you if you have a high fever but they will say stay home if you have a cough. >> and shortness of breath. let me tell you why that is. yes, yes to your question. here is why. these are classic symptoms for some kind of respiratory. flu is different. i feel like i was hit with a ton of bricks and body aches. brian: no question that's the flu. >> i wrote books on food. body aches and fever. this is cough and problems breathing. steve: this is also coming at the same time and this is something i suffer from seasonal allergies because it's been warm the last couple of months. there is a lot of pollen in the air. i have the sniffles and naturally i figure oh well, it must be coronavirus. it's not coronavirus.
3:10 am
>> and everybody is going through what you just said. everyone thinks it's them. we always overpersonallize the risk. we hear a story like this and we sense that it is happening to us. steve: because they say i have got that. >> our ers get flooded with people with allergies already full. ainsley: tom hanks and rita said they did feel like they had the flu. they had the symptoms. steve: bad cold. >> they also had the chest symptoms. it's not a perfect thing i'm saying but they didn't have the flu as much as they had symptoms in the chest. you don't get a productive cough from the flu. you don't get coughing and bringing up phlegm from the flu. they could end up being poster people for this. brian: they are v. been chronic ling it. they put another post yesterday. when you see mrs. trudeau, justin trudeau's wife. they get better and best example. this is what alerted me we
3:11 am
didn't talk about this yesterday. coronavirus can remain in the air for three hours? so if i cough, and i have it, don't know it, i leave here, it's links gearing for three hours? true or false and it can live on plastic for days? >> in a way that's fake news. we will bust through this now. here is why all the fears come. brian: it's on by the way. >> they are just reporting it. here is what i am saying. do you know what else did that exact same thing? sars, which died out. in other words they compared this virus to the other virus that was a coronavirus that didn't cause a pandemic. and they are similar. the fact that it lives on surfaces for days, certain surfaces like metal, like copper, cardboard 24 hours. it doesn't matter how long it lives. what matters is how long you can get infected. brian: if it's living than you can get infected, right? >> not necessarily. it can be there in a form where you can't get infected. generally matter of hours.
3:12 am
it has to be there less than 8 or 9 hours before you get infected. in terms of being in the air. all of these respiratory viruses can hang in the air they're on drop let's. transmitted by drop let's in the air. steve: one of the worries with the paper money it's on there and how long does it last there? going back just a moment regarding seasonal allergies because you said a lot of people have them right now and absolutely true. regarding congestion, a lot of people have it up here where they feel like their sinuses their ears are popping. that's not one of the symptoms. you are talking about it's in your lungs because the worry is pneumonia, right? >> yes. yes. anxiously pointed out something interesting though. it can vary. it can vary. if it is up here, it's not coronavirus. the coronavirus symptoms are shortness of breath. you can't catch your breath. steve: it hurts to breathe. >> shortness of breath, high fever. the doctors took care of 1400 people fro1414people from the dd
3:13 am
princess. ainsley: as far as people in each province that have coronavirus when will we see numbers go down here. i don't think we have seen the peak yet and how far ahead are they than we are. >> dr. fauci is going to say we haven't seen peak yet. very good question. i did a lot of reading about coronavirus and whether they are seasonal. i'm kwreupbseconvinced the vaste seasonal. i look around the globe and don't see a lot of the cases on south america, australia on the equator. my prediction and i could be wrong. we are going to sea this peak in a month or so or less and decline both because of seasonality and because of drastic public health measures. fauci at the helm, he is terrific at this. that's what he has been doing his whole career. brian: a lot of people out there don't have a doctor, don't have a general practitioner. this is the doctor i go to every
3:14 am
year, where do those people go if they feel the symptoms coming on. >> they can call hotlines. i havefield say call your local emergency room. brian: you want to overburden emergency rooms. >> with phone calls not people coming to the emergency room. i do not want people going to the emergency room. ainsley: have to think about deductibles too. $1,000 to got want to. who the test could be free and deductible 1,000 bucks. >> put you in a separate unit and keep you for two days. ainsley: what about the urgent cares? >> it's the same problem. they have to find an area to pit you aside while they test you for two days. get the test anywhere in the country, steve, do you know what? it gets sent out city to the city and state. so it takes a day or two. steve: your ultimate advice is call ahead because you do not -- if you think you have got it you do not want to impact the people who you say hello, i think i have got coronavirus. >> yes. the er is going to tell you not to come if you have classic symptoms of coronavirus. brian: thank you very much,
3:15 am

brian: coronavirus shutting down campuses across the country probably feel. at least 3 million students impacted as close to 300 universities and classes move their classes online what does it say about your money you spent on room and board. students forced out should be fully refunded. joining us right now is texas congressman lance gooden. congressman, that seems logical and only lawful thing to do. do you project a problem. >> i do project a problem. some are doing the right thing. some haven't made up their minds. my hope is they will do the right thing and congressional action is not necessary. if you pay for room and board and you are being kicked out of your dorm it only makes since that you would get that money back. if i cancel a hotel reservation even if it's not refundable. hotels which would still love for me to come are refunding my deposit. my room across the nation.
3:23 am
but, hotels are still open for business. these schools are kicking students out and saying you are on your own. so, if that's the case, they need to be refunding these room and board costs. brian: of course, for a semester, if you cancel the whole semester, that's a different story. how could you possibly charge people only used a few weeks of the semester, right? >> that's right. students are easy to take advantage of. they are not historically voters. they are not loud. they don't have lobby teams working for them. so, they need their members of congress to step up for them. hopefully it's not necessary. hopefully, universities and colleges will do the right thing. brian: harvard, middlebury and am hurst prorate room and board. a lot of them maybe want to apply it to the next semester if you are under classman. might that be acceptable to you. >> it might be if i'm coming back the next semester or graduating in two months i want to make sure i get that money
3:24 am
back. students probably don't have the means. if you are a low income student. if you are on a scholarship. maybe you don't have anywhere to go back. to say you need that money right now. i'm hard-pressed to accept the idea that universities need that money more than the students they are kicking out. >> absolutely. see, the parents are usually writing those checks, i think the parents have got to be proactive and go out there and fight for like everything else usually to get into that school. other thing to think about which is for another time what about the athletes? you are a la vos player. baseball player. anybody playing a spring sport you are not playing. do you come back next year? and if you come back next year what about the incoming class of freshman? any scholarship money for them? >> do you lose your eligible for the maximum number of years can you participate? does this year count? there is a lot of decisions have to be made in the coming months. stpha*bg and everything like that. great you are getting ahead of it. a lot of parents it resonates with especially my house.
3:25 am
my daughter is a freshman. she was told don't come back, you are going to do this from a remote location. come get your stuff. >> was she given her money back? brian: we have not addressed that that bridge has not been crossed. that's why this segment is so perfect for us. getting ahead it. >> thank you. brian: what is it like having the coronavirus? our next guest was quarantined in japan for two weeks. now she is fully recovered and back home. she shares her story with us next. for what you need. i love you! only pay for what you need. ♪ liberty. liberty. liberty. liberty. ♪ to switch to jackson hewitt. 100 reasons for you say goodbye to your old tax service and get $100 when you file with jackson hewitt. plus, you'll get our lifetime accuracy guarantee. so maybe it's more like 101 reasons. get your coupon code at and get $100 today.

3:29 am
brian: life in lockdown. millions of italians under a strict quarantine to prevent the spreading of the deadly kro*ers. 4700 people have died from the virus around the world. and more than 127 cases have been confirmed. good news near live 70,000 people have already recovered. klobuchar joins us live tprul florence where doctors say they are unanyone dated from patients. amy? >> it's absolutely true brian. stories about just how bad the situation is depending on who you speak to some are saying like war time conditions. and patients we know getting treated in corridors and makeshift structures at this point. but the fact that patients, older patients are being refused treatment which has been a story going around, simply is not true as a matter of policy. now, i have to say this life under quarantine is difficult
3:30 am
for everyone. it's quite tkphreurl the extent to which italians are respecting the norms. the stores are stocked but due to the restrictions on foot traffic within stores, there is a wait to enter. and it's very long. many people though don't have much else to do. so, they have all the time in the world to wait. even going shopping, you need a slip. there is an official form you need to fill out for each trip. treats are empty. the government has said it will take a few weeks to see if the results of the lockdown here actually have you know, if it's made an impact the the number of infections were you present again yesterday. overall there have been 15,000 infections in this country and over 1,000 deaths. healthcare workers are obviously exhausted. they are getting sick themselves. the head of one medical order in lombardi a region where millan is located died the other day. finally, brian, i think my connection to you has just
3:31 am
dropped out, unfortunately. i will say that a load of medical supplies from china, interestingly enough, has arrived today here in italy with some medical doctors from china, hoping to share their expertise now that they seem to be on the other side of this crisis. back to you, brian. brian: they started it but they are on the other side of it. thanks so much. amy. let's go down to steve and ainsley. steve: brian, thank you. so what is it like having the coronavirus? our next guest, jerry juror gone son was quarantined for two weeks in a japanese hospital after she tested positive for it on the diamond princess cruise ship last month. ainsley: she is home and officially clear from the virus and she joins us live from utah. good morning, jerry. >> good morning. ainsley: we are hearing 80% are the cases are mild and moderate. tell us about your case what was it like to have it? >> my case was i had a slight fever the night before they took me off the cruise ship.
3:32 am
very slight. it wasn't even 100 degrees. felt a little bit off for about two or three hours and that was my only symptoms throughout the whole time. the whole quarantine up until now. i haven't had any symptoms. steve: look at that you know what they are saying here in the united states is that if you are over 60, or you have underlying medical situations, you know, you should be weary of it. but you are over 60 and it doesn't seem to have been a big deal to you, right? >> it wasn't a big deal to me at all. i'm 65. my husband -- he is younger than i am. he is on antirejection drugs. he has had two kidney transplants and he has no symptoms. ainsley: your husband was on with us a few days ago. we were told -- he told us that he didn't see any signs. no symptoms, but he continues to test positive for it. you all are practicing social distancing. how is he doing now? >> he feels great still. we are still waiting for those
3:33 am
two negative tests to come in. i think his body is shedding. it may be a little bit slower because ever the antirejection drugs, possibly. but, as far as feeling normal, he has an appetite. every time i go out on mountain bike he cries. he would love to be with me. it's not time yet. steve: so you are very active. i hear that you were -- you know, you are out and about because you are negative now. and that's great news. i hear they kicked you out of your gym this week. while that hurts your feelings you understand why people are concerned. but, at the same time, you don't understand the absolute panic that people are exhibiting. >> right. yeah. exactly. i mean, the hysteria has just gotten out of control. all the toilet paper being gone. i don't get the toilet paper thing. but when i went to my gym and everyone was hugging me. even people that i didn't know
3:34 am
were hugging me and said oh, i have been following your story. so good to have you back. everything was great. i get home. get a call from management said we need to be careful because we have a lot of senior citizens in our gym i go i'm a senior citizen. i'm the safest one in the gym. i will be the safest one. i have been through quarantine and tested more than once negative. i have a letter from the cdc. it is what it is. steve: jerri one quick exit question. panic buying and you have been in quarantine. what do people need to have in their house if they are going to be isolated for two weeks? what are the no brainers that you say you know, you need this? >> >> yeah. i would say is have the things you love. if you love to read, have plenty of books. i was quarantined in a hospital. and they didn't have a lot for me. especially they don't speak english. did i get a yoga mat.
3:35 am
so important to stay physically active whether you are walking around your house. do some planks, pushups. move year body. hydrate. eat well and then all the other stuff about washing your hands a lot. and just -- and choose every day to stay positive. it's so much inner attitude. ainsley: positive and beautiful and so fit. you know, most people would use that opportunity to binge watch on tv. good for you. >> i did a little of that, too. ainsley: i would, too. thanks, jerri, so glad you are safe. wish you all the best, too. >> thank you so much. steve: that's the kind of story nobody is really talking about is while there is over 100,000 cases worldwide, 70,000 of them have already recovered. just like her. and it's great news. meanwhile, other great news on this friday, the 13th. that was yesterday on wall street. the markets this morning are looking up after wall street's worst day since 1987, stuart varney is follow the money and

you have to remember the stock market as an example is still much higher than when i got here. and it's taken a big hit. it's going to all bounce back and bounce back very big at the right sometime. steve: it looks like it's going to bounce back today. see in the corner under stuart varney the dow futures up about 800 points. stuart joins us. stuart, how much of that up 800 points is because it looks like they are close to a deal down in d.c. to help people who are impacted. >> that is certainly part of it, yes. they are close do a deal. we hope it's going to be a very, very big deal that shoves a lot of money into the right people's hands and hoping for that. apparently close to at which. also the federal reserve is going to pump in over a trillion dollars directly into the economy. brian: quantitative easing? >> i hate to use thats beings pressure. quantitative easing. steve: explain why they are doing that. they didn't do it one time and that was a problem. >> there is a feeling some industries,' cans, are going to
3:42 am
be running short of money because they have got no revenue coming in. airlines, for example, very little revenue, cruise lines, what have you. and they may run short of money. so the fed pumps it out to the banks to make sure the banks can get it to those people very quickly and with very, very low interest rates. ainsley: why, if yesterday was wall street's biggest drop since 1987 do we have futures that look like that? >> because it's the fear of the unknown. the market has been gripped by fear because we don't know how long this social distancing is going to last. and we don't know how badly it's going to effect the markets. there is certain knowledge of about how bad it is going to be. investors tend to sell. they sold big time yesterday. i would call it a modest today. maybe up 800 points sounds a lot. but compared to yesterday's 2,300 point drop for the dow. it is a very modest rebound. brian: i don't want to get too detailed because we don't have a package yet. talking about paid leave for
3:43 am
hourly workers. suspension of payroll taxes, republicans want it and some republicans don't. but the democrats don't. they also talking about tax relief, delaying the tax returns. making those tests all free is there a danger this package isn't as good as wall street wants and going further in the red? >> there is a danger of that but we don't know until we see the size of the package or who is going to get the money that's very important. brian: what does wall street want. >> straight into the economy from the federal reserve into the public. ainsley: changes democrats are going to make them permanent. republicans say we can do it temporarily until we get through the coronavirus but if we write this down democrats might try to keep it? >> that's the argument, isn't it? it's a valiant argument to have. we should be having a political argument about how we best deal with this crisis economically by the government. now, the democrats, i think they
3:44 am
want to make some of these ideas permanent, which could become a new what's the name of it a new. steve: permanent entitlement. >> entitlement program, thanks, steve, these the danger here from the republican side. the republican side want it to be temporary but still jack in a lot of money. steve: something that happened here in new york city. we saw the mayor of new york declare a safety emergency. there has been such panicked buying at stores in the new york city area and elsewhere. i was out at costco yesterday in wayne new jersey not far from where you live. so many people. and everybody had a great big cart full of stuff. i was after the walmart yesterday, same thing. there are some people who are just planning for the unknown, ultimately, you hate to think about it but those kind of companies are actually doing well right now as people pick everything off the shelves. >> sure, just for a second. look to a few weeks down the road. if the social distancing increases and if the number of
3:45 am
people who have to work from home or stay at home or are quarantined increases, will our stores have the delivery people to deliver the new stuff to those stores? will they have the employees. steve: do we know? ainsley: nobody would be allowed to go shop. look at illustrately you can't leave. >> i don't know whether or not we are going to get to the italian point, which is a total lockdown of the whole country. we are nowhere near that at this moment in time. although, if social distancing is a strong thing, new york is a ghost town this morning. brian: talk about sports and mark coul cuban is going to be joining us in an hour or so talking about mavericks. nhl suspends, mls suspends their season. we saw it overseas playing in front of empty stands. the impact economically. it's not justth entertainment, it's the ushers and parking attendance, it's concessions,.
3:46 am
steve: hotels. stuart: it is. when these sports cancellations were announced that brought home. steve: to everybody. >> makes you think spring and summer is here, almost. that's what we do in spring and summer. we watch sports. think of it from the point of view of a sports bar, for example, what are they going to do? thousands of sports bars in america which will be empty. how about sports gaming, gambling on sports. what happens to those guys? sports to gamble on. brian: gambling is so big. in the big picture, we need to see -- turn the corner. and to do that some people say end of april. i heard doctors say yesterday end of april. can you imagine the economic impact when you see the nba take the court again, when you see major league baseball start their season finally, that will help invigorate everything, as well as dollars, wouldn't it. >> the bounce back will be strong. but there are some things, demand being destroyed now which will not come back. for example, you wanted to buy a
3:47 am
pair of shoes tomorrow. you didn't buy a pair of shoes. will you buy them two months from now in the summer or the fall? will you do it? will you bring back that demand? it's a very tough question to answer. steve: indeed. that's why we are calling you in. you will be here on the couch on sunday, hosting "fox & friends" this weekend. stuart: don't touch me. four hours. stuart: i can handle it. brian. brian: jillian, i promise not to touch you. jillian: a fox news alert now. four suspects are in custody after two police officers are shot in philadelphia. the officers were reportedly serving a warrant at a home when the shooting began. both of them were rushed to the hospital. no word right now on their conditions. two suspects were also shot. right now a swat team and u.s. marshals are at the scene of the shooting. we will bring you more information as soon as it becomes available.
3:48 am
congresswoman alexandria ocasio-cortez implies voter suppression cost bernie sanders the michigan primary. watch. this i think one thing that isn't being talked about is the rampant voter suppression in this country. right there in ann arbor. bret: just to be clear you are saying you think voters didn't get to vote thatted to vote in michigan. >> absolutely. more we need to do in terms of turning out youth voters making sure we inspire young people to turn out. when you do turn out, you should not be waiting 3, 4, seven hours. ainsley: the new york congresswoman campaigned for sanders in michigan. joe biden won in a landslide. those are your headlines. brian: brian good to see her with bret. good job. steve: adam has the weather. adam: getting spring-like thunderstorms moving across the mississippi valley. everything you are looking at here. green hail reports. strong wind reports, also this system will continue to kind of sweep across the country.

3:54 am
apple said never use disinfectant on technology. it's about the value proposition. do you want to spread germs because phones do spread germs. so, there is a right way and a wrong way to clean your phone. what you do want to use, they recommend, is like that a clorox disinfectant wipe and also put a clean paper towel down, you want to do this by the sink at your home,. ainsley: very wet. >> those are very wet. what you want to do the side of the phone. don't drink the phone, don't put your phone under water. don't use abrasive on it. use one of these wipes, if you don't have a wipe, spray a household cleaner on a paper towel and use that start on the sides, do the back, do the front. wipe it very, very well. and set it down on that clean paper town now you go wash your hands. you come back, you are in business to use your phone.

3:59 am
4:00 am
ainsley: right to a fox news alert. hospitals scrambling to find test kits and beds to keep up with the surge of coronavirus patients. brian: covid-19 passing 1600 with 40 deaths so far in the u.s. two biggest outbreaks are the states of washington and new york. 29 states are under a state of emergency. steve: meanwhile after a bad day on wall street yesterday look at that guy's face. the stock futures in your corner up 871 points after wall street was thrown into a tail spin. the dow dropped more than 2300 points falling so hard. trading had to be brought to a stand still. today things are looking up.
4:01 am
ainsley: some cities across our country ghost town san francisco. new rochelle, new york. shuttering america's favorite past time shutting down sports, broadway even disney parks. brian: that's incredible. 5 million students told to stay home after several states including michigan order all schools to shut down. some for a full month or longer. steve: meanwhile, shoppers, many of them had the day off yesterday to work from home. instead of working a lot of them went to the grocery store and a lot of things because there was a little bit of a panic, look at those shelves, cleaned out. meanwhile. airline passengers have shared photos of nearly deserted terminals as people cancel travel plans to stay at home. the whole thing is all about social distancing. you can't get the coronavirus from somebody over there if you are far enough away from the person over there. ainsley: president trump standing by his response as he slams the obama's handling of
4:02 am
the swine flu. steve: moments ago the president tweeted their response to h1n1 swine flu was a full scale disaster with thousands dying and nothing meaningful done to fix the testing problem until now. changes have been made and testing will be happen on a very large scale. all red tape has been cut and ready to go. that is good news but we have heard that before. brian: griff jenkins his picture came up a little bit early he is so anxious. he is in the nation's capitol anand talking about emergency funding. what is happening today? griff: hopefully so. it is crunch time in that building behind me. house speaker nancy pelosi expressing optimism closer to an agreement after failing to move anything yesterday. they resolved most of their differences here is what is unique at this moment. a probable sense of political will hasn't been in washington for a long time it. is now. take, for example, last night the often spoken about partisan freshman aoc sitting on set
4:03 am
right here with bret talking about compromise. >> one thing we need to do is put politics aside. agreed with president trump of goals of free sick leave and free coronavirus testing. compromise is the name of the game. griff: lawmakers are scrambling today to pass something that put financial institutions at ease. sick pay, free testing food assistance, as well as tax credits for small and medium sized businesses. it couldn't come sooner. yesterday was the biggest one-day drop since the black monday stock market crash of 1987. look at this. the dow down more tha 2300 poin. s&p 260 and nasdaq 750: >> the stock market, as an example is still much higher than when i got here. it's taken a big hit. it's going to all bounce back
4:04 am
and bounce back very big at the right time. griff: another shocking thing about this moment, official washington has become a ghost town. look at this, capital visitors virtually empty now. the white house all closed to the general public. only members of congress, official capital today. as for the bill we don't know exactly howe it is going to happen. but we are told that we expect the house to vote on it. now, mitch mcconnell, senate majority leader has cancelled their recess but they are not in town right now. even if the house passes something today, this afternoon, it certainly is not like i the senate would get to it until monday. that's the time they have to take up other unfinished business to deal with fisa reform. things are going to move perhaps very quickly this morning and into early next week, guys. brian: is there any negotiating going on in the house or just majority rules? griff: it seems the negotiations, brian, is between speaker pelosi, democratic
4:05 am
leaders and really treasury secretary steve mnuchin on what they are going to do. but you are going to add in the senate leaders. one thing we are told to watch for is the cost of this emergency aid package. if you look back to 2008, the tarp deal in the tune of 287 billion was certainly not something that people were interested n the conservative side of the aisle. brian: even though it was produced by a conservative administration. steve: all right. griff, thank you very much. and apparently according to the "the washington post," yesterday mnuchin and nancy pelosi agreed that the payroll tax cut will be taken up at a later time not appropriate right now. because you look at the numbers, and we have got a graphic that shows you the coronavirus worldwide. there are 128,000 cases with, as you have heard, many times over, 4,000 deaths. but look at the other number. close to 70,000 people have already recovered, including somebody we talked to just about
4:06 am
40 minutes ago who her name is jerri are going t georgeson. she felt terrible and. ainsley: she actually didn't feel terrible she had a fever a little under a hundred. steve: shocked at the panic. >> the hysteria has gotten out of control. i had a slight fever the night before they took me off the cruise ship. slight. it wasn't even over 100 degrees. felt a little bit off for about two or three hours and that was my only symptoms throughout the whole time. the whole quarantine up to now. it wasn't a big deal to me at all. i'm 65. my husband, he is younger than i am, but he is on antirejection drugs. he has had two kidney trans plants and he has not had any symptoms. choose every day to stay positive. it's so much better attitude. brian: great story and i think tom hanks and his wife are going to tell a great story when they get better.
4:07 am
when you see justin trudeau and his wife one is quarantined. when the canadian leader and his wife are better. that's going to say it. the same reason you pick up people magazine people are curious about their lives. they will see people get it like everybody and recovering from it. that would be a great message. steve: so few people are talking about the people who do recover. dr. nicole saphier joins us right now. why don't we see that number of recovery very often? we see the big scary number, the number of people who have died and got it we don't hear much about the people who recovered. nicole: you have to ask the people writing the headlines. the recovery number is crucial right now to help put ease to public panic as you see the far majority of people in china have actually recovered. they still are seeing illness but they are closing down the makeshift hospitals that they made and absolutely on their way to recovery. having fewer and fewer cases every day. many provinces reporting zero cases. ainsley: what advice do you have for america who is watching right now. nicole: listen, this is a very
4:08 am
serious situation. we can't say don't worry about it. this is going to pass. have you schools closing. you have new york shutting down broadway. i mean, these are big deals. it's a very serious situation. but the truth is that we will get through this. there are been many pandemics in the past. and this is another pandemic. just because it's called a pandemic, don't let that be -- don't let that word, that terminology scare you. the truth is it's a virus. we know how to handle viruses. we are learning more about this virus every day. just take the appropriate precautions as individuals while we also do things on the federal level. brian: dr. saphier when you look at where the president is over the weekend somebody who tested positive. secretary for brazil i don't have any symptoms. i feel fine i'm not going to be tested. is that the right message. >> it is a personal choice whether you want to undergo testing. he has direct contact with someone who has tested positive. he is under the care of some of our nation's greatest physicians. i'm sure that he is consulting
4:09 am
with them and they will give him good advice. steve: because they look at the risk level. let's talk, about if you are in the room with somebody, let's go ahead and break it down because people are, when they go to the grocery store or whatever they wonder am i too close to that person? you say there is no risk if you are walking by or briefly being in a room with a symptomatic person who tested positive, right? nicole: i wouldn't say there is no risk whatsoever. but your risk of contracting the illness by just walking past someone, does that say asymptomatic. brian: waiting by or briefly being in a room with a symptomatic personal who tested positive. >> nicole: symptomatic increased risk coughing or sneezing, there may be particles in the air. depends how close you are to the person. your risk is still low it. is a highly contagious virus. if someone is symptomatic avoid contacts. if someone is coughing and sneezing. i would hope they are home or they are wearing a mask. ainsley: what does medium risk look like, dr. saphier.
4:10 am
nicole: medium risk? ainsley: sustained close contact or longer with a a estimate particular person. nicole: semantic people are getting caught up in the details. bottom line is try to keep six feet between people in generate now. we are kind of close on this couch. brian: in violation. nicening none of us are symptomatic whatsoever. the theory is if someone coughs or sneezes, the particles can stay in the air and the farther away you are, the less likely you are to get infected. brian: one of the low risk is being in the same room as somebody a symptomatic person who tested positive but you didn't get within six feet that was low risk. now for high risk you say it's close contact in a household with someone with a confirmed case of covid-19. nicole: i didn't say any of this. these are not my talking points. i'm reading these for the first time as well. brian: take a look and tell me what you think. if i walk in and tell you i have had close contact with my house with someone with a confirmed case of covid-19.
4:11 am
nicole: there is someone in your home or someone that you are in close contact with regularly, you are at high risk. this is a contagious virus. a lot of people are going to get this virus. i mean, we are a society. we get together in gatherings. that's why you are seeing spread of this. if you are with someone who has tested positive and you exhibit symptoms you absolutely should call your doctor and likely be tested. steve: all right. so let's move on -- you answer some questions. we will just ask you the question and you say whatever you want to. first of all, the question is the presence of a fever always the first symptom and should i take my temperature every day? nicole: that's a great question and the data we are seeing out of china and now in the u.s. as well it shows about half of the people actually have a fever. so a fever is a good indication if you do have a fever you absolutely should call your doctor and potentially consider getting tested based on your contacts. however, you are not always going to have a fever. some people are a estimate symp.
4:12 am
they say maybe runny nose but let's not confuse seasonal allergies with this. if you have normal seasonal aerial, it's probably just your seasonal allergy. ainsley: dr. saphier the next question is what is considered elderly. retirement age and in your 60's should you be concerned? >> they show there is significant increased risk severity of illness greater than 60. that risk further increases if you are over 80. the term elderly in this sense applies to those 60 and above. brian: how about this question? i want to redeem myself. how many children have been diagnosed with the virus? nicole: so 90% of people with the virus have been between ages of 30 and 79. 8% have been adolescents and less than 1% are under 10 years old. so, children do seem to be safe from this virus which is different than other pandemics. brian: which is interesting, how does that play into closing down schools? especially elementary schools?
4:13 am
nicole: let's think about this. usually schools are closed during flu season because children, you know, are vectors for the flu. they infect a lot of kids and they get the flu. that's why. they are not really being infected with this virus; however, school gatherings, dropoffs, it does expose us to just a lot of interactions. and the whole concept right now is social distancing. so you keep your -- you keep your children home, you keep your parents with them. and there is fewer outside contact. children can still have this virus. steve: and give it to somebody who is elderly. nicole: they are more likely to be a symptomatic or mild symptoms. ainsley: what about pregnant women? nicole: great question and reports from china premature labor with adverse effects. we don't know what the details there. we don't actually know if the coronavirus caused those. however some reports of that. so, as with any infection, with pregnant women, just the cold or the flu can cause issues.
4:14 am
it's not uncommon to think that potentially this could as well. steve: i also read a story out of china that said that four women had had their children and while they had the covid-19, the babies were born without it. here is another question for people with pets. are people able to give the virus to their animals? nicole: there was some question in the beginning people thought you could. recently a little bit more data came out and saying that does not seem that is the case. they are saying if you are self-quarantining, especially when people staying home right now, you should consider having someone who is healthy or a symptomatic care for your pets not because we are worried about infecting your pets in case you get really ill and have to be hospitalized or see a physician you wanted to make sure your pets are taken care of. brian: how long does the virus live on something like a dollar bill? nicole: that's a great question. there was a study that came out yesterday that had a little bit shock factor which i was concerned was going to cause some panic which said the virus can live in the air three hours and it can live up to three days
4:15 am
on plastic and steel. and some on cardboard boxes for about a day. the truth is, maybe one to three days. probably closer to one day. but just because you have to remember this is a study. it showed that there is virus particles still active there just because it's still, there that doesn't mean that it's still able to replicate inside of you. it may be so weak by that time. the point is if you are hand links certain things, you should be washing your hands anyway. don't start counting days this plastic and this dollar bill just wash your hands at this point. free tend everything has a virus and every person has a virus. ainsley: if you don't use cash, you have a credit card. putting it in. still entering numbers. picking up that pen and signing. nicole: pushing buttons like everybody else wash your hands. brian: i have the tap card. steve: very handy. the test something so incomplete in the country right now. a lot of people are self-quarantining at home which brings this up. i think i had it.
4:16 am
i stayed home for two weeks. now what? nicole: that is a very valid question. why did you think you had it. steve: they wanted to get a test but didn't have a test. nicole: people around you. 14 days self-recommendation quarantine right now it. does show that potentially you can be a symptomatic with the virus even longer than that. i would be concerned after 14 days did you go back and started living your life. i would absolutely touch base with your physician, potentially reach out to. so public health hotlines and consider elongating that maybe three weeks. brian: dr. saphier how close are we getting to drive-thru tests? nicole: i just saw that roche this morning was fda approved for emergency use of a new test that they said they can test over 4,000 a day. it's automated one which would be wonderful get the results within hours. the truth is we have had a delayed response here. we are behind.
4:17 am
brian: no question. nicole: if we want to get the handle on this we need the testing. i'm hoping to see every hour for the next 48 hours that there is going to be more testing available. brian: what is the name of that company? nicole: roche. and what we have seen elsewhere south korea, tijuana the private sector stepping up and coming up like roche. in the united states we haven't really had that the reason south korea has so many tests because they had four of their own biotech companies come up with it. the united states decided not to use some of these outside tests because they weren't fda approved and the truth is, there is about a 50% false negatives for these tests in china. we didn't know how accurate they are. here's the big question. do we use them even with such a low sensitivity or specificity? maybe because we wanted to have a handle on this. but the united states is known for quality. and they were not okay with using a test on americans that didn't live up to the quality we
4:18 am
expect. ainsley: so the viewer knows, if you go to the doctor and swab your mouth and they turn in the swab to roche or the cdc or whoever it is, that's the testing center that you are talking about, right? nicole: right now i believe there is 81 public and private sites across the united states that are capable of doing these tests. we need more. there are a lot more labs than that we have many institutions that are coming up with their own tests and making them available i have i know at my hospital we have them available. we have a large amount of immunocompromised patients. steve: we are going to talk to dr. fauci. brian: we are going to talk from 10 to 10:30 on the radio. ainsley: preorder her book. what's the name. nicole: make america healthy again. steve: perfect timing. set to vote on a corona relief bill today as the house cancelled recess next week. dr. burgess says it's more important than ever to work together. is he coming up next.

>> >> agreement subject to exchange of paper. we resolved our differences and those we haven't we will continue to the conversation because they will obviously be other bills. steve: there have you got house speaker nancy pelosi assuring that democrats are closer to striking a deal with the white house on the coronavirus relief bill. the house is expected to vote on the package today at some point while senate majority leader mitch mcconnell has cancelled next week's recess. joining us now with insight is congressman and doctor michael burgess from our dc bureau.
4:24 am
they were supposed to be in recess they thought that would sandy terrible message. if we don't show up we are going to look stupid. >> to tell you the truth that was one of my fears as well. in fact, congress was supposed to adjourn yesterday. i'm grateful we didn't. of course we need to stay here envelope we get this done and even if it takes on in to next week. i think the differences are being resolved. it's a little tough because this is a negotiation that's being entirely handled by the speaker. we do need some time to look at what finally emerges. that was kind of the issue at 11:00 wednesday night when the bill came to the rules committee on kind of short notice. and there were some problems. and those mobs became more and more clear by the next morning and they pulled the bill off the floor. now, and i appreciate what the speaker said. there are some things that are just going to be too hard to resolve right now. we don't have to resolve everything. there will be other spending
4:25 am
bills. there will be other supplementals, emergency bills. this crisis seems to be in some pars of the world diminishing. but it's going to be with us for some time. steve: yeah. so what you are talking about is i know the president and the white house had been talking about it would be great to have some sort of a payroll tax cut of some duration. but, now it's -- the writing is on the wall. democrats are not going to go for that if that's ever going to come up. it's going to be some other bill. it's not with this particular thing. >> you know. in a previous administration, i was probably less enthusiastic about a payroll tax holiday. they were all for a payroll tax holiday. you do wonder if politics is playing a role. if you want to get more money in the hands of people let them have their entirely earnings and not take money out for the social security and f.i.c.a. tax. that is a way to get money in the hands of people. i think the president was on to something there if we can't do
4:26 am
that this time as the speaker said, there will be other opportunities for us to -- us to deliver for people. steve: doctor, this is a rare moment of unity behind closed doors it sounds like the speaker is working with the treasury secretary and they are trying to come up with something that your side and her side can agree on, which is exactly what america needs to see right now. >> correct. you know, but the other thing and this is one of the things that has really bothered me. i'm on the energy and commerce committee. we are supposed to be the premier technology and research committee of the congress and we haven't had hearings on this. we haven't had any investigative hearings. we haven't had any scientific hearings and the health subcommittee. so this has been tough. other committees seem to manage that but we haven't. so i hope the democratic leadership will allow us to have the hearings that we need to have on the energy and commerce committee because people look to us for that type of leadership. steve: yeah. and people would like to know why this testing thing just has not worked out right and it sounds like it's a lot of problems.
4:27 am
a lot of red tape. a lot of bureaucracy in washington, d.c. going forward has got to get fixed because people are going why does it take so long? i have go to cvs and get it checked in no time whether it's the flu or strep throat. doctor, it's frustrating for us, i'm sure it's frustrating for you. >> america is the engine of ingenuity. we should be innovating in this space. i know we can and i know we will. we just need to get started. steve: we do indeed. a busy day and big vote i hope. thank you. >> thank you. steve: meanwhile, there are reports that china is trying to blame the united states for starting the coronavirus pandemic. this goes to show how dishonest the chinese government is newt is on deck. he's next.

epicenter which is in china. chinese officials are now turning the blame on the united states. steve: spokesperson for the chinese foreign ministry tweeting, quote: it might be u.s. army who brought the epidemic to wuhan, make transparent. be transparent make public your data. u.s. owe us an explanation. brian: we thought we would bring in the former speaker of the house fox news contributor newt gingrich. this is a foreign ministry. this is no side talk at a sports bar. how unacceptable is this? >> well, let me say first of all i wrote a book called trump vs. china to make the case this is a totalitarian dictatorship, it has goals that automatically make it a competitor of the united states. and like all dictatorships it lies all the time. it doesn't surprise me. they were faced with the entire
4:33 am
planet blaming them for having first caused the epidemic and then second made it much, much worse because for the first six weeks they actually suppressed and punished the people who were telling the truth. they wouldn't let our doctors. in they wouldn't share the virus. this whole pandemic is dramatically worse because of china. and so they now, in a sort of typical dictatorship manner are going to try to tell a big enough lie that just the process of fighting the lie gives it some life. there will be places around the planet people will say gosh, the americans must have done this. brian: unbelievable. >> which, of course is a total lie. absolute lie. ainsley: what about the people who live in china? do they buy this. i snow it's state one television and state run newspapers they are told to say certain things. are they reporting that it's our fault. >> look, the state run newspapers, state run internet. the whole thing, of course they are reporting it's our fault. if you were to go online and say, you know, it's really the
4:34 am
chinese government's fault, they have a term. you would be disappeared. the police would pick you up on the street. you couldn't call your family. you couldn't call your lawyer. and you would literally disappear. this happens all the time. people in america do not realize how totally dictatorship we are dealing with here. how ruthless it is. and i think it's a big mistake to kid yourself about the nature of the chinese system. they lie to us about what happens with slave labor. there are companies like nike that are using factories that have uighurs who are muslims from western china who are forced into slave labor. they lie to us on the nature of the concentration camps in the area where the uighurs live. they lie about what they are doing in tibet. this is just one more lie from an administration, a dictatorship which has been routinely lying. brian: newt, the next time someone signs up for their belten road program or for

huawei they should keep on the wuhan virus that poisoned the world. that's what you get when you get chinese trade. and that's what we -- the american companies should keep in mind when they cut these deals. >> well, and that's why, frankly, we need a much, much stronger u.s. government response on 5g and on huawei. we have been sitting around, failing to act for over a year and a half now. and every day we fail to act, huawei gains ground around the world. brian: unbelievable. >> it's a vehicle of misinformation. and a vehicle of spying for china. and anybody who thinks that they are not going to use it that way has no concept of you who china works. brian: the u.k. too. big letdown. newt gingrich, thanks so much. >> good to be with you. brian: straight ahead some american troops have tested positive for the covid-19 virus. what is your military doing to protect your forces? pete hegseth is here to talk about it. i need a ride.

4:41 am
coronavirus task force addressing measures to protect our troops at home and abroad. steve: so are they doing enough to keep our troops safe? that's the important question. brian: here to react "fox & friends weekend" co-host and army veteran pete hegseth. pete, what do you think about this adjustment the myrtle is making? pete: making the same common sense measures. troops that don't have to be moved aren't being moved. the restrictions on base, if you have any of these particular signs, all depends on your military specialty, right? certain specialties in the military are going to be more forward leaning in times like this. new rochelle are there is a quarantine going on chemical specialties there on site if necessary. a lot of it logistics and moving people or preventing people and things from moving. if there is one thing you need to have still able to operate at a moment like this, the national guard, the reserve, it's the military. keeping readiness at high level is important which means you are keeping troops out of crowded spaces as much as possible. ainsley: reserves going once a
4:42 am
month. pete: that's all still happening right now. those things are not being cancelled. overseas troops still do what they are doing. you will not see the amount of redeployments troops will stay where they're. ainsley: a lot of video conferences instead of in person. steve: structure of the army and armed services. they sleep close to each other. they eat close to each other. they are marching next to each other. how do you -- do you say today in the marches everybody be six feet away? pete: well, maybe, you differ a little bit of the types of activities you do. also easier to quarantine individuals in the military if need be. ainsley: most people are really young so they're not going to get sick. pete: you are right able-bodied people. brian: let's talk about what happened yesterday. we have answered the iranian sponsored militia that rocketed our base and killed two of our guys and one brit. we answered last night with airstrikes. pete: that's right. on five of their weapons depots. this is an iranian backed group
4:43 am
hezbollah. we know it's controlled by iran. they continue to allow rocket attacks on our bases when we have very little defense against right now with 5,000 troops on the ground. brian: patriot troops in there. pete: vulnerable. 18 missiles hit. killing two of our troops and a brit. the response was to shoot down or destroy a lot of their capability. the question is does it continue to escalate or not? iran has continued to try to poke us in baghdad in iraq after our -- the killing of soleimani. will it escalate? that remains to be seen. brian: country flat on its back asking for a loan from the world bank and supreme leader might even be quarantined we don't know and we see satellite images of mass graves in iran. guess who they deal with? china. pete: at the same time the house of representatives is voting to tie the hands of our commander-in-chief on whether or not. brian: inexcusable. pete: amazing. that tehran will read as weakness. brian: the president will veto that. pete: yes he would.

brian: all right. a fox news alert. the coronavirus fears escalating across the country as over 1600 cases have been confirmed here in the u.s. so far. ainsley: american doctors struggling to find enough test kits amid the surge in the coronavirus patients. steve: so how prepared is the u.s. to combat covid-19? let's talk to dr. anthony fauci at the white house coronavirus task force. he joins us from d.c. good morning to you. >> good morning. steve: we can see the frustration in your face when you are trying to explain what has happened because, you know, the administration has been saying the tests are coming. the tests are coming. hasn't really come. can you just, as simply as possible, explain what the -- what's gone haywire? >> well, you know, the system that was built -- that the cdc when they made their test is more for a public health type of response where they give this test to the state and local public health groups when a person comes in to an office or the doctor, they order a test. that system worked very well for
4:49 am
other situations. when you have something where you need a much broader display of tests throughout the country. you have to have a different system. and the different system is a system that involves the public sector and private individuals to get involved, where everybody steps to the plate. so what we are doing right now is getting the private sector involved. the companies that make a living doing these tests, getting them involved and looking forward, you are right, going back, the situation was not optimal. it didn't function the way we would like it to have functioned, going forward right now with the private sector involved, you are going to see a major escalation of capability of getting people tested when they want it. brian: then, when people get tested the numbers obviously are going to go up. i saw that dr. brian hun hand in briefing senate leaders yesterday told congress that you could expect between 70 and 150 presidential americans testing positive for this virus.
4:50 am
can you tell me what's your take, dr. fauci, on those numbers? >> you really have it be very careful when you make predictions based on models these modalityings models are as good as the assumptions put into the model. i'm not down playing anything. we have a serious situation here which i would like to get back to. but let me explain those numbers. when people do modeling, they say well, let's say this percentage of the population gets infected, and then let's say this and this and this. and they have a big bracket of the low level and the high level. more often than not. the high level is way, way off. but sometimes it's thought. so even though you could say we're going to have a lot more infictions, there are going to be a lot of people that are going to be infected, the critical issue is what are you going to do about it? and that's what we are doing now, doing things that are interfering with the natural flow of infection because if you leave the virus to its own it
4:51 am
will go like this and then go way, way up and come back down. how do we know that? we see it in china. we are seeing it a little bit now in korea and we likely, with all the suffering they are going through, we will also see it in italy. our job, as an american public as health officials and all of us in america is to cooperate to do two things. to prevent new infections from coming in. brian: right. >> and to deal with the ones that we have by containment and mitigation. so, even though you can make a projection that the possibility that you're going to have these many infections, these many infections or these many infections, what you need to do is to try and get this heap which we know occurs if you don't do hardly anything to become a smaller hump. that hump will still have a lot of people getting infected but a lot of lives will be saved and a lot of suffering will be avoided. that's the goal of what we are
4:52 am
doing. ainsley: dr. fauci, i have been reading online some people that have had it and they weren't able to find the test. finally after three or four days after asking for tests they were able to test positive for it. now, what can they do though? i understand these tests are very important because we need to be able to know if we have it so we can prevent going home to our elderly parents or being around a certain group of people that might be at risk. but, other than that, there is no vaccine for it right now. so even if you find out you are positive, how important are those tests? >> if you know you are positive, i mean, people are putting, understandably, tests will tell you what the broad range is out there and it would define an individual but if a person is sick, you go home, you stay home, you give a phone call to your physician, to the clinic or to the emergency room and you try to get testing. people, i believe i'm telling you, are putting too much emphasis on testing. what we need to do is respond right now.
4:53 am
steve: right. >> in other words, whether there is testing available and definitely be much better to have a lot more tests out there. but that should not prevent us from doing the things that would prevent from you getting infected. steve: sure that. >> kind of social distancing. ainsley: right. >> that we are talking about. you know what they're, avoids crowds, avoiding unnecessary travel, doing the kinds of teleworking which is easy to do. we need to do that right now whether or not we have tests and we will have tests as we are going forward. steve: indeed. doctor, you know, families are looking ahead at the calendar and they think, okay, for the next two weeks, you know, my kids' schools are going to be out and then after that comes our kids' spring break and easter and things like that. should people start to think about canceling their spring breaks, their easter and should they, if they have travel in about a month or so, should they think about perhaps not fly
4:54 am
domestically? >> you know, yes, everything is on the table and everything should be considered. we would like it to be a bit more proportionate so that if you see community spread in one area, the situation is different in seattle. in washington, because they have had the unfortunate situation of having community spread there. steve: right. >> also in certain areas of california. that's a bit different than other areas in which there still will ultimately be infection but not exactly the way it is right now. you want to be proportion nativity in what you do. but, for sure, you don't want to do nothing. you want to start doing something to socially distance yourself. brian: right. >> how dramatic that is, closing schools and doing other things should be proportionate. a lot of people, a lot of sections are doing it anyway. i don't criticize them for that they may get fatigued from that. but i would rather do that than do nothing. steve: sure, but regarding domestic air travel, right now, what would you say?
4:55 am
we get that, you know, can't really fly to new rochelle, new york, you would fly to the new york area. just generally air travel we have people all over the country watching. >> so if you talk about domestic air travel, again, you said it yourself, it depends on where you are going. but, particularly, you should talk about who is it that you are referring to? if you are an otherwise healthy young person, and you have a trip that you need to make, make it. if you are an elderly person who is well, think about whether you really want to do it. if you are an elderly person and you have underlying condition whether that be heart failure, kidney disease, i do beat, chronic lung disease, stay away from unnecessary travel, and for sure don't go on a cruise. ainsley: right. brian: dr. fauci, did she sports leagues overreact in shelving their seasons and the tournament or did that make you feel better
4:56 am
about america's prospects of beating this? >> you know, it's a tough call. i don't want to be, you know, monday morning quarterbacking them. but my own philosophy is better do more than less. the troubling is some people say if you do all of that you are going to be fatigued and ruin the economy. we need to not worry about that now. we need to worry about protecting the american people. so if people do something like stopping a sport event or having a sporting event occur just with the players and not the audience, i don't have an audience with that at all. brian: they decided it wasn't worth the risk. ainsley: dr. fauci, do you want to respond to that? >> i'm sorry, what was the question? ainsley: let me ask you this question because a lot of people my age, we have parents that are in their '70s, early $80 and some of them are sick. my mom, in particular, down in south carolina. if i get on a plane and i'm infected and i feel fine, because it won't come out for two more weeks, if i go to her house, is she safe?
4:57 am
do you recommend i don't travel and i'm asking this because some people are dealing with this. >> well, that gets to protecting the people who are vulnerable. if you are living with a person or have somebody that you are in close contact with, you should be very protective of them. which means you should try your best to avoid infection. i don't know, if i is had an immunocompromised person that i'm close to in my home, i would act as if i were infected to protect them. in other words, don't do anything to put yourself at risk that might hurt them. have you got to think not only of yourself but of the people that you are responsible for. ainsley: that's hard because like my dad takes care of my mom. i guess you wear a mask? it's difficult. >> yes. those are the kind of things if you go -- the cdc has a website called, that has the different types of mitigation in practical language where you can understand.
4:58 am
but have you got to make an individual choice. if you have a vulnerable person, have you got to be very careful about not bringing infection into the home. brian: dr. fauci, when are we going to turn the corner on this? some have predicted end of april numbers will start to decrease like we are seeing in china. what do you think? >> you know, first of all, you don't know. you can think but you won't know for sure because this is the dynamic situation. brian: understood. >> that is unprecedented. if you look at the history of these types of outbreaks, first of all, it's going to depend on how you respond. but, given what i just said, if we do the mitigation, and the containment, that would make this turn into this, you are talking, you know, anywhere from four to five weeks, maybe more, maybe 8, but maybe even less. i think the four to five week component is probably a good guess. with the understanding that you may go longer into a few months. steve: in the meantime as you know in new york city, the mayor
4:59 am
declared a state of emergency as has been declared in numerous states and suspending activity and kids are going to work on their computers there has been a general panic, dr. fauci, in the country over the last couple of weeks. you know, did you go to the grossry store the level of panic or anxiety, is it proportional to what is actually going on? >> well, whenever you have the unknown, the level of anxiety is always out of proportion to what usually turns out to be the reality. but you have to understand why people are concerned. and that's the reason why i welcome the opportunity to be talking to you about that, to tell people although things are going to get worse before they get better, we will handle it if we pull together as a nation and do the kinds of things that would blunt that effect. it is unfortunate that we're in
5:00 am
this. this is some of the things that we've been talking about for years. it's predictable, you will have outbreaks. some of them are inconsequential, and some of them are really consequential. we're dealing with one right now that's consequential. we've got to deal with it. you deal with it by action, not by fear. ainsley: dr. fauci, will there be cities on lockdown in the united states? >> you know, i don't know. as i always say, you've got to keep everything on the table. you would hope that you wouldn't have to resort to these draconian moves of actually locking down a city. but it depends on what happens. i hope we never get to that, but you never take anything off the table when you're dealing with protecting the health of the american public. brian: sure. when you look at this virus in particular, is there any doubt in your mind that this came from wuhan, china? >> oh, it absolutely came from wuhan, china, there's no doubt about that. steve: can i ask you one other question? this is here in the united
5:01 am
states causing this anxiety level to go through the roof. at the same time that seasonal allergies are impacting a lot of people, and a lot of people might have a runny nose, some congestion, a little fever and, of course, you know how people are, they immediately figure i've got the coronavirus. but they just have seasonal allergies. can you make it as simple as possible for people watching to know which you've got? >> yeah. it isn't definitive, but i can tell you when you look at the experience that the coronavirus disease that people get is usually characterized by a fever and pulmonary symptoms; cough, shortness of breath. sneezing, getting, you know, red eyes and -- steve: runny nose. >> -- and teary-eyed, that is not characteristic of coronavirus.
5:02 am
coronavirus for the most part, with few exceptions, is fever, feeling like a flu-like syndrome, weak, muscle aches and then you wind up getting pulmonary symptoms. if my eyes are getting itchy and my nose is running, it is highly unlikely that that is coronavirus. brian: and when you talk about the testing which i know is bothering you, i've been watching your testimony that we don't have enough, there's a sense that we might be close to flooding the zone with them, with these driving tests. i saw a report. how close are they where it's not going to be that big of a deal to find somebody who can give you the test? >> i asked that question of the people responsible for that, the cdc, the fda and others when we had our it is ainging force meeting -- our task force meeting yesterday. and i was told, and i believe that they're good people, that right now as we get involved with the private sector in the next week to two, we're going to start seeing a major increase in availability of tests.
5:03 am
ainsley: dr. fauci, all of us are parents, many people watching are parents, talk about how we can protect our kids, our family. i know kids aren't getting it. is there a chance they're carriers and they can give it to the elderly grandparents? >> well, there is, and that's the reason why you got to be very compulsion i about washing your hands frequently. you can even do things when you come out, doorknobs that, you know, that are not a major way of transmitt, but, you know, wipe it down with the appropriate wound. but washing your hands. and if you feel sick, segregate yourself from the vulnerable people. those are the ones that we've got to protect. steve: next question, how many times a day do you wash your hands, dr. fauci? >> too numerous to count. [laughter] steve: well, you're not alone. how are you holding up? >> i'm holding up fine. i'm only getting about three hours of sleep a night which is not good, but i'm hanging in there. brian: doctors are going to be
5:04 am
mad at you. that's not enough. ainsley: you're taking care of our country, but take care of yourself too, dr. fauci. get some rest this weekend. steve: well, that was great. he is the world's preeminent authority on this, and it's great to have 20 minutes with him. in the meantime, if you've been watching the stock market yesterday, bad day to retire. but today, look at that. the dow jones futures are up close to 1200 points. one of the reasons is it looks like capitol hill is coming together with a bill for coronavirus are relief. ainsley: that's right. griff jenkins is live in our nation's capital as lawmakers work to approve emergency funding. >> reporter: hey, that is right. yesterday there wasn't any political will, but today it certainly seems like it, speaker pelosi expressing optimism they're closer to an agreement. things got stuck in the house rules committee, but just in the last hour, dr. michael burgess who's a member of that
5:05 am
committee, had this to say on "fox & friends." i think the differences are being resolved. it's a little tough because this is a negotiation that's being entirely handled by the speaker. we do need some time to look at what finally emerges. >> reporter: now, that matters because the rules committee is supposed to be convening, reconvening right now at this hour. sources say they expect them to move this revised bill to the floor this morning, suspend the rules and getting them faster where debate begins. of note, republican lawmakers like burgess were left out of the process, so there will be issues and questions. among them, the price tag with even a bump in medicaid spending, about $100 billion, and it's very possible this will not be scored before republican lawmakers could be asked to vote on it. the american people and markets want action, because yesterday was the biggest one-day drop since black monday in 1987. the s&p down 260, nasdaq dipping

750, but at the white house the president is urging calm and confidence. >> you have to remember the stock market as an example is still much higher than when i got here, and it's taken a big hit, but it's going to all bouncing back, and it's going to bounce back very big at the right time. >> reporter: meanwhile, look at this. washington has become a virtual ghost town. the capitol visitors' center empty. the u.s. capitol, supreme court and white house all closing to the general publishing only members, staff and those on official business are going to get into with the u.s. capitol today. and guess what? even if the house does get their business done by mid afternoon and passing something, it doesn't end because the senate canceled their recess, but they're not here today. they won't be back until monday, so this is going to play out for quite some time and and perhaps a little bit of confidence on capitol hill will help those markets, you mentioned. guys? brian: six minutes after the hour, let's bring in geraldo rivera, fox news' at-large
5:07 am
correspondent. anxious to get your take on this. so the market's going up today, so the rivera fortune now has a -- [laughter] ainsley: but you're not allowed to retire. >> right. at my age, it matters. excuse me, hi, ainsley, brian, steve. tried to get peter over here when he was covering the rallies, the sanders and biden rallies that were canceled just about 5 miles from here, but he's doing a good job. in terms of my fortune, brian, you only lose money if you sell your stocks which, you know, my intention is to leave most of my wealth to my wife and to charities we support and, of course, the bratty kids. but they, hopefully, will not have a chance to cash in quite yet. i've got a plan, you know, it's kind of the tulsi gabbard/andrew yang plan that i think would have made this bill more palatable to all sides. what i wanted to do, what i would still like to do, the
5:08 am
president wants this payroll tax holiday which is a great idea, i think, but it only helps people who make money, the payroll tax would be deducted from. so it really benefits the middle class, the upper middle class, the higher income earners, the payroll tax holiday, so why not combine it with the yang/tulsi gabbard plan to give every adult american $1,000 in cash right now. i think if you give them the $1,000 in cash right now plus the payroll tax holiday for however long this emergency lasts, then i think people would be celebrating from the unemployed or working folks to the middle, to the upper middle, to the, you know, to the high income earners. let everybody get the cash in their pocket, let them feel confident about spending, confident about the future. put those four gig people back to work, the uber guy, the market, the liquor stores, whatever it is. i think that now's the time to be generous in the short term
5:09 am
it'll be a hit on the deficit, no doubt about it, but you don't make it permanent. you give a little something for everybody, everybody feels confident. you know, $1,000 in your pocket, what are you going -- ainsley: how do you pay for it? he wants to give $1,000 every single month. >> i do, i do. i want to give $1,000 to each and every adult in america asap, and i want to do it tomorrow, or today's trued. let's make today's payday. ainsley: $2,000 a month, sounds great, but how do you afford it? >> i would promise you, ainsley, that we would donate our $2,000, but there's a lot of people not so far from where i'm sitting right now here in cleveland that could really use that $1,000. they would spend it right now. that's what you need to get the, you know, keep the economy stomachlated. the trump economy -- stimulated. the trump economy has been brilliant. ainsley: where do we get the
5:10 am
money? i've asked you, how do we afford it? >> you know, affording and where you get it are different questions. i think in terms of where you get it, the treasury prints the money, the money is there. we have the cash, we could certainly -- we have the credit. there's zero interest rates, so basically the treasury is borrow aring at zero interest. it's free money in a sense, just got to pay back dollar for dollar, you don't pay interest on it. i think the treasury could get that money out to people. plus the president announces the payroll tax holiday, so that's putting 10% more in some focus' e in their paycheck, that's terrific. but you have got -- my point is you've got to have a broad-based kind of a grand gesture by president trump. it's a one-time hit on the deficit, i agree, but these are tough times, these are emergency times. now's the time, i think, for people to get out there and have some confidence to, you know, pay some money --
5:11 am
steve: if that were in effect right now, the people would spend their $1,000, i mean, the shelves are picked clean here in new york city. people would buy purell, and they'd buy toilet paper and hand wipes and stuff like that because people are freaked out. we were just talking to dr. fauci about the level of anxiety in this country is as high at this point as we can remember in recent memory. do you think it's proportional for what is going on? given the risks we have heard, it's very low, and your chances if you are not over 60 and not in a medically, you know, compromised situation, your chances are pretty good. >> well, i met dr. fauci in 1983 in the midst of the aids epidemic where we were just finding the out how the disease was transmitted. nobody knew. i had a brother-in-law who was afraid that it was transmitted by mosquitoes that bit an infected person and would come and bite him.
5:12 am
there was panic everywhere, in the streets, in the clubs, at home, everywhere. gradually, information is how panic is tampered down. you give people the right information. let's wash our hands, let's have social distancing. here in cleveland we are blessed, we have the cleveland clinic. they're gearing up, there are tents going up even as we speak to give additional hospital capacity. university hospitals is here, metro north, they've got a big, big facility here in cleveland. we are very, we're blessed. new york is, you know, new york tends to overreact sometimes. they'll calm down -- [laughter] and the way they calm down, steve, is is with the -- those shelfses stripped now, tomorrow they'll be filled. let's encourage those suppliers. the problem i have when the president addressed the nation the other night, it was kind of too cool for school.
5:13 am
i wanted him to say, come on, we're in this together, we're americans. this is another challenge. you know, rise to the occasion with soaring rhetoric that hearkens back. you mentioned the d-day invasion and events like that. that's the way you do it. brian: ed rollins, who runs a super pac for the president, you can honest hi say he's a supporter, said everything else the president's accomplished will be way in the background if he doesn't come out on top of this. and he used jimmy carter failing with the iran hostages and bush 41 for failing to respond to the recession. do you agree? >> i do, and ed rollins is a brilliant man, and i've known him for a long time as well. and, you know how i feel about this president. i consider him a dear friend, and i want him to succeed because his success is all of our success. but if we botch this and we stumbled out of the starting gate, if we botch this, the president will be in real trouble. but i see things a little differently, brian. i think that we've got, we've
5:14 am
got our momentum now. everyone is on the same page now. nobody can fault the pence, fauci, you know, group, the head of the cdc, the surgeon general of the united states, all these other key people. it's a great team, they're doing an excellent job. the testing, it would be nice to have a whole lot more tests available. cleveland clinic has developed its own test. but you don't want everybody running to get a test if they're asymptomatic. if you've got a fever or you can't hold your breath for ten seconds, everyone should do that. if you can hold your breath for ten seconds, then you don't have, you don't have this disease. brian: ainsley's been holding her breath for 30. >> we've got energy. we're in this together. we can do this. steve: it is always a pleasure to speak to you on friday. >> oh, you too. ainsley: thanks, geraldo. good to see you. have a good weekend. brian: geraldo's happy to talk to you. steve: and all of us.

although he was looking for peter doocy in cleveland -- >> can i let it out now? i've checked my testimony every day this week. all right, let's get you caught up with the news we're following. this is a fox news alert wreaking right now, a philadelphia police officer is killed in the line of duty. 46-year-old corporal james o'connor was shot early this morning. he spent 23 years on the police force and leave behind a wife and two grown children including a son who is also a police officer. two suspects are in custody, at least one is wounded. we will pass along any new information we get. in the meantime, convicted chelsea e manning a free woman, a federal judge ordering her to be released from jail one day after she attempted to take her own life, refusing to testify before a grand jury investigating wikileaks. she was found guilty many 2013

♪ ♪ >> the system that was built that the cdc when they made their test is more for a public health type of response where they give this test to the state and local public health groups. that system works very well for other situations. when you have something where you need a much broader display of tests throughout the country, you have to have a different system. ainsley: dr. anthony fauci joined us earlier on "fox & friends" addressing concerns there aren't enough tests for covid-19 as cases surge across our country. steve: fox news medical contributor dr. marc siegel is back to react. you know, there have been plenty of swabs out there where people could and swab your nose and send it in, but at this point it's only been the cdc that's
5:22 am
been doing the testing, and that is what has limited things. >> i would say alex azar, the secretary, let's see if he has an update that it's getting faster. but right now you're right, steve the, out takes -- it takes days and days to get back. and roach just got approved, a new rapid test that would only take about three or four hours. so that's going to be in wider distribution. speed is of the essence here. just like ainsley was saying before we came on, what do you know if you have a positive result? well, i want to know as fast as possible so i can tell people to stay away from other people and not go to the to hospital. steve: and you want to know if you are negative as well, because then i'm clear. ainsley: that's true. >> and then your fear goes down. that's what all this is -- ainsley: we have a coworker who has told us she has a fever, and it turns out she's fine, but you do get concerned. we thought, do we have to
5:23 am
self-quarantine? >> like dr. fauci just said, constellation of symptoms, deep cough, shortness of breath, fever, but there's variations, and everyone says, oh, i have a fever, maybe i have it. brian: let's see how many questions we can get through. how long can covid-19 remain in the air? >> well, the answer is it's found to be three hours, it was just studied, but i don't want people to think that it's hanging in the air. it's on a respiratory droplet like spit if you sneeze or you cough. that's what carries it. it's called the vector. it travels on that. that can hang in the air, but it's not like you're going to walk into this room and someone with coronavirus left here three hours ago, you're going to get it. brian: i heard one thing to do, drink, drink water. >> well, i always want people to do that, you know why? mucus membranes stay moist, and the best barrier you have are the hairs inside your nose, but they only work when they're moist. so you have to drink water all the time, it's a very good idea. steve: how long does covid live
5:24 am
on surfaces, plastic, wood, metal, things like that. >> plastics, about 2-3 days. wood is about a day and metal is about 3-4 hours. so there's a variation. but again, i don't want people to be afraid to touch plastic because i just said it's 2-3 days. no matter whether the virus is alive or not, what really matters is ca can it infect you, can it get you sick. it can be there and still get you live, but it can't get you sick, and the answer is probably about several hours, 7, 8, 9 hours before the virus isn't viable anymore. ainsley: we haven't had a bad winter, we're entering into spring and soon summer. is that going to kill the virus? >> i just talked to somebody in australia today who said there's 130 cases down there. the problem is i don't think that's a lot. i think as dr. fauci just said, most of these viruses are seasonal, ainsley, and i studied coronaviruses last night all night reading on this, and i'm convinced there's a very high
5:25 am
likelihood that when we get higher humidity, higher temperatures and a lot of uv light, by the way, which kills viruses, you're going to see this drop down over the next couple of months. steve: it's all about the humidity. finally, what is your worry, if so many people go to the hospitals, you know, they're invariably going to be admitted, tie up a bunch of beds, that's really the worry, do we have enough beds. >> so we're performing a public service by letting people not to go to the emergency room, not to go to the doctor but to do this by phone. i don't want a flood of people in the e.r. that may not actually have it. the other problem is though what about the supply lines in hospitals. are we going to be able to get the supplies we need. a lot of them come from china. what about health care workers if they get sick from being exposed, are we going to have the replacements. do we have enough icu beds -- steve: plus you can still just self-quarantine at home, you don't need to be in a hospital bed. >> exactly.
5:26 am
and that's what i think with tom hanks and his wife rita wilson, i hope that's, hopefully, they're showing the world what you should do. call someone but don't rush to the hospital. vast majority of cases are mild. ainsley: that's a good thing. 26 minutes after the top of the hour. college campuses across the nation shutting down to prevent the virus from spreading, or at least many of them are. how will this impact the millions of students? we're going to hear from liberty university president jerry falwell jr. >> tech: don't wait for a chip like this to crack your whole windshield.

affecting about 3 million students nationally. brian: with more campuses expected to close, how will that impact the rest to have semester especially when some say we're going to do a virtual class, and many aren't equipped to do it? that is not the case with liberty university, they're one of the first to do it. jerry falwell is the president of liberty and joins us now. jerry, you guys know how to do this, right? >> well, we have 100,000 students that are studying online, only 15,000 on campus already, so the majority of our student body is already off campus. and so, but the 15,000 that are here, many of them have asked us, please, do not cancel classes, don't send us home to do online, we love it here, we want to stay. what we have done is eliminated any large crowds, any events that involve large crowds. you know, it's just strange to me how so many are overreacting. the h1n1 virus in 2009 killed
5:32 am
17,000 people. it was the flu also, i think. and there was not the same hype. it was, you just didn't see it on the news 24/7. and it makes you wonder if there's a political reason for that. it's, you know, impeachment didn't work and the mueller report didn't work and article 25 didn't work, and so maybe now this is their next, their next attempt to get trump. but i had a, the owner of a restaurant asked me last night, he said do you remember the north korean leader promised us a christmas present for america? back in december. could it be they got together with china and this is that present? i don't know. but it really is something strange going on. brian: regarding the fact that you're going to continue to have classes and i would imagine dorm life is going to remain as it is
5:33 am
as well, is a component of that the fact that it seems to be that people in their late are teens and 20s are less affected by this than people who are over 60? >> well, it is true that the cure rate is 99.7% for people under 50. that is a factor. but we have talked to medical professionals, numerous medical professionals before we made this decision. but eliminating the large gatherings, we think, is a prudent move. we think it'll -- in 1918 when the spanish influenza came to america, city that banned large crowds had much, much less spread than cities that didn't. so we learned from that. but we, yeah, we're on spring break next week, and so it's all fluid. anything can change, but as of right now, that's our plan. ainsley: you're the honorary chairman of vexa, tell the folks at home what that is and why you

want these counties to leave virginia for west virginia. >> well, washington, d.c. suburbs now control every, every virginia astronaut wide election, and that's a result of the radical government in richmond. they're passing all kinds of bills that are just contrary to what the majority of virginians -- not the majority of virginians, but most virginians as far as land mass support. and so what we learned when we announced, when we announced it, we said it was a long shot because we thought richmond had to approve these counties leaving, and we thought washington had to approve it. but we learned from jerry howell, a legislator in west virginia, from a local attorney here and from our legal team that thomas jefferson to who the virginia -- wrote the virginia constitution so that counties, communities, cities could leave virginia, go to another state without a war because he didn't want the revolutionary war to

5:44 am
folks who do all the jobs you mention aren't going to get paid, people who are working by the hour aren't going to get paid. so we put together a program where we're going to pay them as if those games took place. we would have had a game coming up tomorrow, and we'll pay them as if that game happened. i encourage others -- not all small businesses are going to be able to keep paying their hourly workers in particular, so i encourage those who can to continue to do so. and i say the same thing to hourly workers, be cognizant of the circumstances of your company. you know, if ceos and even small entrepreneurs can work together with their employees, you can find a resolution and, hopefully, over the next couple months all the virus stuff resolves itself and everybody can keep their jobs. but it's going to take ceos and employees working together to make that happen. brian: you know, it's true, texas really is a bunch of people that learned to be self-sufficient. that's who your ancestry is, is and i think it's going to come back to that. however, for the first time maybe in a long time, maybe a lot of people in the sports

world will look to washington to help. you're in both worlds. you're in the investment world and the sports world. when you're looking at that a market, what are you thinking? >> so, obviously, everybody's taken a hit, but i look at when was the last time the market was at this level, and we hit this number right around december of 2018. so it's only been a little bit more than a year, and as painful as it is because people like to look at their 401(k) and their stock statement, you know, you have to put it in context. no one got too excited, people didn't say this shouldn't be happening when it was going straight up very quickly, and you have to take the counter of that as well. you can't get too upset. what i tell everybody is if you don't know what to do, do nothing because it's impossible to time the market. brian: true. now washington, for the airline industry, the hospitality industry the, your industry, they're trying to come up with some type of aid package. how would you affect the common man and woman, the family, and even the night you were interviewed on espn, it was
5:46 am
about your family. what do you hope washington does for the families? >> i hope we're proactive to keep people working. you know, it's one thing to say we'll do tax credit, other people talked about a helicopter drop where you just write a check from the government. my preference is we set a set of standards that, you know, maybe through the small business administration we'll do a quick turn around or through the fed so that small companies who need to borrow money can if they keep their employees on payroll. big companies can if they keep their employees on payroll. because what happens is once you cut an employee, it's so much more difficult to find the reason to bring them back. and so if you can do something that requires people to keep people employed, you know, and there's part of me -- the libertarian part of me doesn't like that, but when you're in crisis, you have to respond to the circumstances in front of you. you can't be dogmatic. i would want to see a requirement or at least the hope that people retain employees in order to qualify for aid because
5:47 am
that's what we need. we need continue knew my was -- continuity because, hopefully, this has a limited horizon. hopefully, we start to return to normal in 8, 9 weeks. so if all we're doing is effectively subsidizing employment for 8 or9 weeks, that is going to be cheaper to the country as a whole than letting people get fired, getting them through the process of unemployment and support systems and then trying to figure out ways to get them hired back. that's difficult. keeping them on salary, on payroll is far -- it's the path of least resistance and a lot less friction. brian: the nba fans, people watching your league, the mls and baseball, what's your message? is this a delay or is this over? >> i think we'll play, and i think the key to that will be do players, any of the leagues, do players contract the virus. if they don't, you know, we've had two players in the nba contract so far. if it's limited to two, three or four, i think we go back
5:48 am
relatively quickly and the same with the other leagues. the only real issue is if players contract it, then we have to allow them time to heal and get healthy. so if we keep the number of instances down and then, in general across the united states and literally across the world we start to see a resolution to the virus, then i think we get back probably by the middle of the summer. brian: okay. i don't know what you're going to do, you know? you go to every single game, you sit up front like so many americans. >> yeah. a lot of -- with spring break coming up, there's going to be a lot of forced family fun across the country. brian: all right. monopoly and yahtzee. >> exactly. brian: thank you so much for joining us. >> i appreciate it. brian: meanwhile, coming up straight ahead, doctors struggling to keep up with demand for the coronavirus test kits. dr. michael baden here to react next, but first let's check in with sandra smith with what's coming up on her show. sandra: we hope to bring everybody or through all the breaking news. the house is set to vote on a
