joining us now for medical knowledge as we continue this conversation on coronavirus, we have a doctor internal medicine specialist in east bay. we have been all week talking about this and there is always more to talk about because the situation just keeps changing. i think the question right now is as everyone is going to their homes and the schools are closing and everyone is
telecommuting, the question is will this work? because everyone is sacrificing a lot. will this work. there's a graphic called flatten the curve. explain what impact this will have been >> this bring that up and let's talk about that. flattening the curve basically means that there are two different peaks we see. let's talk about the axes first. vertically you see the number of cases and horizontally you see the time since the first case. the first peak that you see in the curve is a peak of a virus without any protective measures. so if we were to do nothing, that is what would happen. we would have a lot of cases in a short amount of time. and of the dotted line you're seeing is the healthcare system capacity. so let's talk about the second car. if we take protective measures like social distancing, quarantine and testing early, then we can flatten that curve. and we can make it more into a hump instead of a huge peak. >> will it last longer but we
will be able to manage it longer to make >> absolutely right. like you see right there, the case is going to be spread out over a longer period of time to the number of cases will likely reduce, too. they won't completely as a pair but they will reduce and what that meets for the healthcare capacity is that we can handle it. that's what we want to try to avoid. we don't want to overwhelm our hospitals. >> let's talk about testing. a lot of people try to figure that bit of us and we don't have enough ability to test everyone who wants to be tested. had we know when we should go in to say i should be tested for chronically make >> when you are having symptoms indicative of the disease. i know they are very general because you can have shortness of breath and cough and fever and in other illnesses number two. but we have to listen to her body for the california department of public health has a wonderful graphic and we will put that up now. let's work away from left to right. the blue square says are you experiencing beaver, cough or shortness of breath. you go to the next era is his call your physician or local public health department.
it may be hard to get to the local public health department because they're being inundated with coso talking to your provider will probably be the best thing. either your doctor identifies that you have mild symptoms and tells you that you can stay at home and self eyesight. or they tell you to come in and at that point you will be tested. and you should have test results within the next 24 hours. hopefully with the new tests coming out, the return time will be better. if you don't get immediate response however, and you try to call your physician and you having severe symptoms, you should not be waiting. call 911 and go to the er or urgent care. that's good advice. i think we have one more graphic we want to talk about in this effort to get out more information. tell me again, i don't think we have the graphic but this unless issue you want to make sure we cover. >> i want to make sure that something that has not been covered too much in the media is things that going to the spa or getting a manicure or pedicure official. >> you say no to those things. >> i say no because you are in very close proximity to those
attending appeared >> should go to restaurants or shop in the mall and grocery stores are those okay. >> that's a personal decision and are some things we need to do. we need to go to grocery stores to make sure we are stuck. but what we can do is keep in mind the social distancing. and as much as we can to keep that distance six feet or at least three feet. >> you get a lot of people that say we are panicking and this is not important are we doing too much. we don't need to do this much. are you hearing pushback from people who say is this really necessary could make >> definitely. we are hearing the pushback and i just want to stress that this is not a hoax. this is real. we are in this right now and if we don't take these measures, the situation will get a lot worse. >> thank you so much for coming in. and your phone. >> clean your phone. >> and your phone is like your third arm. keep it clean. you may think so much and i

hazardous up there so please be careful if you are planning on heading up. for us anywhere from half inch to an inch and have a brain i may be more in the hills. speaking of the hills, it's a easy one already this morning. areas over mount diablo and the north bait reporting 30-35 miles per hour or so. snow levels dropping down to about 2500 feet eventually and that means we could see little bit of snow in our hills. i will look at the timeline, the afternoon highs in the extended forecast coming up in it just a little bit. >> it is all hands on deck for the white house and federal authorities. ahead at 9:00, we are expecting the vice president to speak about the pandemic. we will carry that for you live. and up next, travel at er editor joins us with travelers should know if their second- guessing their plans. more, when we come back.
as of midnight last night, the new travel restrictions are in effect barring most foreign nationals and screening all- americans arriving from countries identified as hotspots for coronavirus. it has caused a lot of confusion around the globe and a lot of stressed out travelers trying to find their way back home to the united states or to their countries be joining us now is gabe who is the senior firstname.lastname@example.org. trying to face some concerns and add clarity to it. good morning. >> i wish i was there with you my friend but i'm doing the social distancing thing and it is what is. i'm here in a rainy los angeles. i'm hoping that by the sum next month i will be there right next to. but yes, this is clearly a bit
of a shock to the travel industry and to a lot of travelers out there that has been a lot of screaming going on in european airports as you have heard. the fact of the matter is that as u.s. citizens, we do have the freedom to go to reality is availability of flights being very fluid over the next couple of weeks. the fact that you are seeing a lot of prices go up and down and lack of dependability being able to get back smoothly pit that's what is sort of getting people to rethink any travel plans over the next several weeks. if a lot of people i talked to who are still saying you know what, i really want to go to europe, the fact of the matter is that the reality of the ground is not what we as travelers probably expect. so, i think generally the industry is cognizant of the social distancing cult that is out there. and we're starting to look at and plans are starting to come into fruition from mid april onward although i think it's sort of june onward.
where will start to see sort of the pent-up demand come to the surface. >> let's bring you back to march. if you have loved one stuck in europe and trying to get here. just to get a reservation and get on a plane, they're going to get home eventually but is just more of a process right now, right? >> it's the fear of the unknown as far as dependability of being able to get back at a certain time. and we don't know about things like delays, aircraft delayed or you as an individual having to deal with some of these procedures in place that are getting people tested and getting people quarantined or maybe even self quarantine. it's more about the uncertainty about once you do get back or the physical act of getting back that is getting a lot of people to rethink this. i think for people that are currently in europe, i think these airlines are in unison. i think we've seen a very cohesive response from the airlines and pretty short order limiting things like change fees and making sure that the flights that are available are not cut back until we see most
of that contingency at the that needs to get back to the united states it is actually back on the ground. >> about the impact on the european union and the airlines itself financially devastating? >> emceeing figures here that are estimating a loss to the airline industry in the 100- $150 billion range once all of this has calmed down. the influx of americans into europe starting at this particular time of year is huge. as you know i was going to be today in ireland covering st. patrick's weekend festivities. and spring break creeps up as is the next big travel. after holly's. we start solidifying early summer plans and none of those reservations coming to fruition, a lot of industries on the ground are certainly very concerned. and also keep in mind that we are also curtailing the influx of europeans coming to the states. much of last year, $3.4 billion was spent here in the united states more than 850,000 europeans that came over and
enjoyed travel throughout the united states in the month of march. so eliminating that flow in either direction is having a major impact right now. i think the industry is starting to look ahead now and i think projections are that by the time we get to the early summer season, we could see a bonanza of travel value opportunity. i think people will start to get more comfortable with the idea of booking. fall could become the new summer and interestingly, crews bookings for this time in 2021. so when you're away from now are unusually robust. so generally speaking we are starting to see a shift now. people planning from some more onward and into the second half of 2020. >> the flights for maui at $99 sound good right now. i think we will pass one up and let me ask you this, what do you have what if you have plans and you want to cancel them at our monthly knee it and hotels? >> what has been encouraging to
see for a lot of travelers is the fact that airlines are in lock step when it comes to waving things like change fees allowing you to keep that credit for a later flight or really just canceling without some of these change fees that can easy crawl up to $200 ticket for domestic travel. 400+ for national international travel. waiting fees make it easier for travelers to simply change your plans. we are hearing from a norwegian air shuttle that caters within 40 destinations out of sf open they are looking to put 50 percent of their workforce on hold for about a month. they are seeing more people doing more of the rebooking or holding onto reservations and using that later credit than actually flat out canceling pizza that is potentially positive side. i say listen, take advantage of the flexibility that in many cases is unprecedented in the airline is good if that makes you much more affable and you could travel maybe later
certainly then up and we do know the crews industry is on hold for the next 30 days so it could be that by mid april we start to see a renewed interest in increasing as well. >> we are on hold for about 2-4 weeks. and rick quickly will the crews industry ever recovered in the short-term? >> the crews industry tends to become a bit of a punching bag whenever these kinds of things occur. we had issues on two ships there and time will tell how the handling of some of the situations could have been done much better. i think the industry as a whole always expects to take a bit longer than the airline industry in the hotel industry and hospitality industry to recover. but there is enough of a core group of sort of sector of avid cruisers who will continue to crews or those of folks that are in earnest booking cruises for the first quarter of 2021 right now. creatively through some
creative marketing, and really sort of exposing the kind of protocols that are new now, sort of coming online that will make cruising a lot safer for some of us with the new cruisers, will become the name of the game over the next couple of years for sure. >> will certainly be cheaper. i think you said it best. fall is now the new summer and there will be deals out there. you just have to weather the storm. the senior editor of troubles and.com and a good friend here to ktvu. gave in southern california. always a pleasure. thanks. >> thanks. >> let's get to weather now because we got some rain to talk about. >> thankfully we have rain not only for today but the next few days but the final days of winter are going to feel like it. giving you a look from the east bay looking into san francisco and rain dropping on our lens at the moment. scattered showers reported over the east bay. coastline, peninsula, north bay got in on it early on. rain started falling of the note they at two-3:00 this
morning. since then in the dry. we do have scattered shower from napa over toward vallejo. light widespread rain and along the space short and well inland east bay is where it is widespread. through the delta and working toward bayfield, moderate rain on there. 580 and over richmond and oakland down to san leandro and over to east highway 24 and into the valley there we have light rain with scattered shower activity going on from the coast around san francisco. it looks around sfo and heading toward san mateo may be in and out of a few scattered showers but highway 101 and 280 and into the seer, the snow was falling and levels are dropping down to it looks like 3500 feet or so. we will continue to drop all the way down to 2500 feet which means we could actually get a little bit of snow.
in the hills. here's a look at what's going on with that system. it will drop south and so the widespread rain for today we move out but this will continue to bring us on and off scattered shower activity sunday, monday and maybe into tuesday. thunderstorms a possibility with this unstable cold air in the rainbows that come along with it. here's a look at future cast. 11:00, 1:00, 3:00, 5:00, 6:00 and a notice it doesn't really go away. we will break away to scattered showers late in the evening but sticking around for the next few days the on and off stuff. it won't be as widespread. rainfall amounts anywhere from half inch to an inch and half expected with this system that will continue to bring us the wet weather through the next few days. we could see a little more in the hills and in the hills it is quite breezy for the time
being. and likely to occur over the next few days. temperatures this morning in the mid-40s to mid-50s padilla but warmer out there with all that moisture and cloud cover in place. look at the afternoon highs. some of the areas including livermore in the upper 60s yesterday. today upper 50s. mid-50s expected in san francisco. again, this is a winter type storm for the final days of winter. temperatures don't get much better. sunday, monday and tuesday we rebounded a bit on wednesday with partly cloudy skies but thankfully going to see a good amount of rain, our way. 4-5 feet of snow pit >> i'm up about driving up on monday and you get up to 6000 feet. no snow on the ground. but plenty is coming now. >> hopefully the beautiful lake tahoe shot we typically get on the weekends by tomorrow, i'm sure we will see that pit >> thanks. a lot of uncertainty swirling around the big story. of course, the coronavirus. at 9:15 am doctor mitchell joins us and answer some viewer questions. and bill gates is reducing the

winter. giving you a look at what is going on over the bay area. a lot of cloud cover, breezy in the hills. temperatures in the 40s and 50s this morning. this winter storm is bringing rain to the bay area, so to the sierra and going to drop our temperatures for the aetna. all this coming up. look at what's going on where we have scattered showers from the coast across san francisco. we have had live pictures and the golden gate and the bay bridge covered in it. the bayview district, daly city and errors over san francisco that looks like right over sfo we may have a few scattered showers. it's been widespread and east bayshore other inland toward errors along highway 4 in pittsburgh. clayton, highway 680. danville through san ramon. 580 reporting quite a bit of rain per this will be with us for today. temperatures will be on the cool side. even the possibility of isolated thunderstorms eventually and let us know. you just coming up. >> you can expect some rather
long lines at all the grocery stores again today. people continue to panic but as a coronavirus fears are sinking in. we are live at the target in walnut creek where i hear they have one particular item in very high demand. >> good morning. i don't want people to freak out but at the target in walnut creek, they restart is restocked with hand sanitizer this morning. there is still some insight and i got a text from a friend who is in there now. i should let people know that is pretty much where everybody's going right now and you're limited to only one bottle per person. so i can't guarantee that it will be here if you are heading over now. but they are restocking and i want to show you pictures i took from inside the walnut creek target this morning to show you what this buying frenzy has been like. there were quite a few bear shells. cold and flu education and pain relievers gone. toilet paper almost gone. water, frozen food and eggs
also going fast. target has limited many of these in demand items to just one per person. i saw one hand sanitizer per person. one toilet paper per person. one package of water per person. they are trying to limit this so that as many people as possible can get these items. people trying to buy or will not be like to. employees are taking them away at the register. early this morning i was at sprouts in walnut creek where some shoppers arrived early when the doors opened to try to avoid the crowds. >> this is a surprise because i come here every saturday morning at this time. and like me and usually two other shoppers. to date it's like madness. >> it is scary. i can't believe we are reacting this way. i was at safeway the other day and some family had three baskets, three hole baskets full of toilet paper. >> cost goes in the bay area also extremely is this is a
video from his. i was at the concorde cosco where shoppers were also limited to one package of toilet paper and one package of paper towels and one package of water. some shoppers i have been seeing throughout the past few days have been wearing masks and gloves. the shopping frenzy left a nearly empty frozen food section at trader jobs. consumer psychologist say people shopping out of anxiety. they would rather have too much of something than not enough. >> there has a lot of footage of people carrying out massive oddities of toilet paper and then people think to themselves what would life be like if i didn't have toilet paper and it is not good. >> so nothing i should mention is that you saw those pictures of all those empty store shelves that i took your inside of target. but there is still plenty of other supplies. if you're looking for medication, you will not really have any luck. if you are looking for toilet paper you might not have too much luck but they have a lot
of food here. employees are working hard to restock shelves. i saw a lot of boxes in the frozen food area. there restocking that section right now. >> health professionals around the world are trying to keep up with the number of new cases of the coronavirus. johns hopkins universities tracking latest numbers per this morning there are more than 148,000 confirmed cases presented with thousand people have recovered but more than 5500 people have died. just a short time ago, new york's governor announced the latest coronavirus death in the united states. the victim was an 82-year-old woman who is battling emphysema and had checked into the hospital on march 3. johns hoss comes ha john hoskins university has about 50 deaths listed in this map list number of cases in each state. washington, new york, california and massachusetts are highly because they have the most cases. states in great have the fewest. west virginia has zero. in the bay area 167 cases of the virus has been reported.

outdoors. it is raining and we have a nice storm on our hands. >> pack your umbrella. maybe a big jacket. temperatures today will be on the cool side although folks are at home saying don't tell me what to wear. looking at san jose where we have mostly cloudy skies. mainly dry conditions still over areas of the south bay but the north bay and the east bay and peninsula and coastline is getting in on this already. here's a look at what's going on. northbay generally -- let's say more rain is to come. it started over the northbay early on at 2 am-3 am. it's over the north bay and covered in it and stretches from vallejo going to fairfield if you're heading east. but if you're coming toward the west, we have light rain falling over the east bay shore. looks like it's tapering off a little bit. it was widespread a little east bay covered. highway four, 680, highway 24 has got some there. he looks at berkeley over
toward oakland, emeryville looks perhaps like a little bit in alameda. bay bridge, some cisco. as of oh and toward the coast in and out of scattered showers. promotion beach, pacifica to half moon bay. so falling in the sierra double 4000 feet and continue to fall pit expected to get down to 2500 feet. so for us, makes it a little bit of snow in our hills as we roll through the second part of the weekend and maybe into monday. your store morning for our travelers heading to the sierra. it goes until monday afternoon. so it is already underway. by feet of new snow expected at the higher elevations. hallelujah to that. as far as rainfall for us, half inch to an inch and have pretty but more for some of our hills be a possibility in the hills especially breezy. seeing it already this morning. mount diablo and over the northbay hills at 35 miles per hour or so. quick additions expected pit when i come back i will have a
look at the temperatures for today. going to be in the 50s. it's going to be really cool out there and the timeline of this rain expected not only for today but on and off for the next few days. during this coming up in just a bit. >> the restrictions on large gatherings in san francisco means that movie theaters are temporarily out of business. we are telling you how they are coping and have the closures could mean long-term trouble for those businesses. and of course a lot of us worried about the corona first. coming up the doctor answers some fewer questions when we come back. stay right there. ♪ we would only hold on to let go ♪ ♪ blow a kiss into the sun ♪ we need someone to lean on ♪ blow a kiss into the sun ♪ all we needed somebody to lean on ♪ ♪ ♪ lease the volvo xc40 for $329 per month. at your local volvo retailer.
welcome back, as a coronavirus outbreak continues there are many misconceptions out there and even more questions surrounding the virus. so we asked our viewers to send in questions and concerns and we got a lot of them. we have an internal metals and specialist doctor to answer some questions. lots of them out there. >> lots and lots. >> we will start with tom on facebook. he asked if you get the best, how long does it take to recover and at what point you not contagious anymore? >> that's a really good question but the answer to that is currently evolving because we are finding more information about the virus. but from what we know right now, the incubation period of the virus which means from the time that you get the virus to when you start showing symptoms
is anywhere from 2-14 days. wishing an average of about 5-6 days. >> so it can happen quickly. not two weeks. >>) there's a whole range. so we are telling you the range so you are aware of it because every person will be different. >> once you get it, because people have been cured, 60,000 people got it and they are okay. how long does that take we make >> the recommendation is that was your fever has subsided and you have not had fever for 72 hours and without medications or tylenol or advil, that's when you're considered to be safe enough to go back. >> very good. well nate asks why are young children less susceptible and can a child be a carrier even though he or she may or may not have symptoms. >> a very good question. we are learning as we go along that with children in the coronavirus because we just don't know that much information right now. from what we do know, you are getting a mild form of the disease. it is very similar to the common cold. the reason we are shutting down schools is because these children can infect one another
and then they can come back home because they do carry the virus. they can come back home and they can expose grandma and grandpa to the virus. and grandma and grandpa are elderly and they are in that subgroup which can actually get a severe form of the virus if they were to actually get it. that's what we are trying to not have been and get other elderly people in other at risk people exposed pre- >> what is it about children that might carry it but do have stronger immune systems. is that why they -- >> excellent question. we are beginning to learn about that. i would be able to give you a definitive answer because i think we are currently trying to figure out what is giving them that ability to maintain that protection for themselves. >> we are learning as you go. >> we are pit >> john via facebook. how long can the coronavirus man alive on various type of services. elevator buttons and doorknobs or credit card or light switch. >> we are still learning. but from what we know, soft surfaces can remain on soft surfaces for about 24 hours.
hard surfaces like plastic and steel for about 48 hours. so let's give a take away. the important thing we should remember is that high-traffic areas like you mentioned, doorknobs and light switches, tables and countertops, we should be disinfecting them very frequently. >> we just did hours we just did hours. how about clothing? if someone rubs up against you and they have a virus and i touch that, how long does that's a long period we don't have information for that. what i've been doing is doing more frequent loads of laundry. and just taking whatever precaution we can take it >> when in doubt, clean and disinfect. >> exactly. >> and finally, this is pete from the south bay. i'm a dental hygienist and i'm worried about our protective wear and standard precautions. are they enough. could we be susceptible to
getting the coronavirus? >> for that question, i would like to bring you back to cdc and what their guidelines are. they have not changed so far. i know this is continually evolving. so right now with the guidelines as far as wearing a mask, people that are sick and people taking care of sick people need to wear a mask. if you are not sick, you do not need to wear a mask and the reason why that's important to follow those guidelines is because we already have a shortage of masks globally and we need to make sure we don't worsen that shortage because healthcare personnel who are fighting this, we need them to have it. the coronavirus task force and we are really doing a great job, are professionals. the results are very, very good. and when you compare this to what's happening around the world we are very proud of our people. it has been a tremendous amount of coordination with states, with cities and a little smaller form of government with
things going well and coordinating with us. in certain in particular like california has been terrific, the relationship. new york has been really good. we have had some really good relationships in terms of especially the hotspots and we are focused on those hotspots. so mary, we have no problem whatsoever and we hope to keep it that way. before i turn this over to our great vice presidents to provide an update, i just want to express my appreciation for the hard work done by the people behind me and the people back in the various offices including where i just left the oval office where we have some people there that are probably watching this or they're just looking. we are using the full power of the federal government to defeat the virus and that is what we have been doing. last week we secured an initial $8.3 billion from congress for
the coronavirus. and that was quickly done and very efficiently done. i want to thank all members of congress. yesterday i declared a national emergency which was a very big deal because it s that we never able to open up without it. and it will make its -- it will make more than 50 mill $50 billion available for disaster relief funds. that's available for states, territories and local governments. so that was really good. we also reached an agreement yesterday on a new legislative package that was provide strong support for american families and communities dealing with the coronavirus. so it was done very bipartisan. it was very nice to see it. probably, the cooperation. i want to thank secretary of the treasury, steve mnunchin, who did a fantastic job and
work with nancy pelosi and they representatives and it was really great. it worked out really well. and a lot of people are benefiting by paid a lot of provisions in the bill which will be discussing with you today. and the tremendous provision so that is something we should talk about. i was honored to see that the stock market you are mostly there with us, set a record in a short. of time. over a 45 minute. that week at the press conference yesterday in the rose garden. that was a record. all-time record. i think we should do one of them every day perhaps. how about five times per day. we will do one five times per day. but that was something to watch and had no idea and when we walked back, i said how did that work out. they said sir, you just set a new record and history of the stock market so that was pretty good. and those great companies that were there. they could not have been too unhappy either when you think
about it because they are a publicly listed company so they did a good job. more importantly they will do a good job when you look at cvs and walmart and all of the the tremendous people that were there yesterday. these are the biggest and the best and they're opening up their facilities and open up right now literally working right now on opening and doing something that has never been done before to the extent that we are doing it. and so we are very proud of them. also the bill provides for free coronavirus testing for all americans. you should be tested. people getting tested are getting this free. they don't have to pay. a lot of people said gee, that's a lot of money. it's a lot of money and it is. it's a complex test exit appeared and it cost money and is being provided free. people don't have to worry about that. it also provides paid sick in
family medical leave for those who need it including for those who have the virus for caregivers and those looking after children affected by school closures. so that's all taken care of also. and we will continue all these different actions. we have other things planned. we can also be working with companies that are affected financially. our country is in the best financial shape and some differences in the past over the years if you look at some of the real big crises we had, it was financial problems and different things. we are now in very strong financial shape with all the trade on the other things we have been doing. it has been pretty amazing. we hope the federal reserve will finally get on board and do what they should do because we are doing things that they should be doing frankly. we can all do them together but they should be much more proactive. other boards said s and people
representing those countries are taking a much more aggressive action and for the most part we would like to see if you look at central banks yesterday what they did, we want to see our federal reserve be much more proactive. it's important but in the meantime we are doing things that have been done really well received. you saw that yesterday at the end of the day with what we have done. we have a lot of things to tell you in terms of respirators and in terms of all of the different things. the masks are being made by the millions. millions and millions. we have plenty now that we are ordering for the millions. we are ordering worse case in there. we always say worse case scenario. and that is where we are going. i just want to thank everybody paid i think the press has been really -- of the last 24 hours
the representation has been really fair for the most part. your fair. we are all in this together. something nobody expected. he came out of china and it's one of those things that happened. nobody's fault. we all will solve this problem and solve it well. i think the american people have been incredible in the way they acted. and if you look at companies and sports leagues and all of the things, what they have done, it's just something very special. without being told necessarily. and in some cases they were actually told. but for the most part they want to get it over with and want to get it over with quickly and with very little death. as of this moment, we have 50 deaths which is a lot of good decisions and that number could be many times but that's based on a lot of good decisions. one or two in particular where you know that europe was declared the hotspot yesterday because it's a big hotspot.
number one. we made a decision quite a bit prior than that. but if you have any questions, this group will be very happy to do it. but i just want to say they have been led by mike pence. they have been incredible. the job they do. they work 20 hours per day for this man is working 20 hours a day or maybe more. i think it's more. tony has been working and i'm looking at this whole group. we have a number of new stars including the gentleman behind me. i watch him the other day and he did such a fantastic job. i really appreciate it. but they will be answering questions and we have a lot of new information so i think you'll find it very interesting. i will be going back to the oval office. thank you very much. >> so many people that are
rushing to grocery stores all over the country filling up their baskets. is that the right move. you think people should be conserve before buying. also apple announced they will close all their stores for two weeks. you want to see you to outlets and restaurants do the same thing. >> i think it's frankly good if they do it. i think what apple did is fine. and i want to keep people away for a lower pitch escape and why. >> when it gets better. people are going by things and i understand that. by the way, i had my temperature taken coming into the room. let's compare. that means we all looking good. i also took the test last night. and i decided i should based on the press conference srp people are asking if i took the test. i don't know, whatever it takes, a day or two days. whatever it is but they sent it to a lab. >> mister president, respectfully you have sent
mixed messages. watch as she shook hands with people hand disappeared and your only sense of urgency evolve. change what you're doing. >> i have been urgent and this is been urgent right from the beginning. you know that because i closed up our country to china. >> wire shaking hands, sir? >> because it almost becomes a habit and to get out of that habit and frankly i was a non- handshake or for the most part. never believe shaky hands. once you become a politician. i notice it, too, political people walk up to me and want to shake my hand. just take it nice and easy and just relax. people come up to me and shake hands and they put their hand up. it sort of a natural reflex and we are all getting out of it. all of us have that problem. somebody comes up to you and put their hand out then you
probably tend to just shake it. and we are all getting out of that. shaking hands is not a great thing to be doing right now, i agree. the people put their hand out and sometimes i will put the handout. you don't think about it. people are thinking about more and more. we have to think about it and it's important. somebody said yesterday i touch the microphone. i was touching it because we have different height people on trying to make it easy for them because they have to touch because it would be able to reach the microphone. and they couldn't speak in the microphone so i moved the microphone down and they say he touched the microphone. if i don't touch it, they will have to touch it. somebody has to. imams will be the one to do it. but we all have to get away from shaking hands. it's a good thing. and possibly that is something that comes out of this. maybe people should not be shaking hands for the long term because it does transmit flu and other things. we have flew in our country that kills on average 36,000 people per year. 36,000 people. and you know, that something that we are not talking about. but as of this moment, we lost 50 possibly less than 50 but
probably 50 people and will try to keep that number as low as possible. >> the pentagon is telling servicemembers and their family not to travel domestically. should all records follow that same advice. >> if you don't have to travel, i would do it. if you don't have to travel don't do it. we want this thing to him. we don't want people to get infected infected. we wanted to it as quickly as possible. so far we have done a fantastic job. i really think that the people behind me have not been given the credit that they deserve because they have done a fantastic job. when you see all this school closures and school closures are very important but it poses a lot of problems. the bill we signed yesterday takes care of a lot of those problems with children staying at home and the parents at work. now we take care of that issue with what we passed last night. it has to go through the senate and i have to sign it but that will happen. but i'm not going back to the white house. have great professionals and if
there is in his neck comes up, if there is anything -- >> thank you mister present. i wanted to follow up on that. are you considering other travel restrictions perhaps domestically in that regard? >> specifically from certain areas, yes we are. we are working with the states american city other restrictions. >> you are going to restrict travel from uk and ireland? >> we are looking at searcy because they have had a little bit of activity unfortunately so we will look at that. we actually are looked at it and that is going to be announced. >> if i can get clarity on your think. it's a comic of your presidents where you always go after it if
you feel so strongly about it why don't you dismiss the chairman or do you think your power does make >> i have the right to do that or the right to remove him as chairman. he has so far made a lot of bad decisions in my opinion. we had this great and will soon have again because we have a tremendous bounce when this is over. a pent up about that will be tremendous. you so that you stay with the stock market. i'm not happy with the fed because i think they're following and not leading. we should be leading. i'm not happy because when you look at the central banks of other central banks, largely they are lower than us. their rate. and the ra equivalent of the fed rate is lower in some cases by two points. in some cases that's a lot. in some cases very substantially. and i thought that the fed should be much more proactive as opposed to following our fed is falling. we have the number one currency in the world by a factor of
many times. as you know we have the currency and we have the power and we have by far the strong currencylsshould be doing. we should not have a fed rate that is higher than our competitor nations. you look at germany and they are essentially under zero. they are negative. many countries are negative. japan and germany and others are negative and we are paying higher interest rates. what i would like to do is frankly refinance our debt. we could refinance our debt easily at a much lower rate. we have some tremendous opportunities right now but jerome powell is not making it easy. have the right to remove. but i'm not doing that. i have the right to also take him and put him in a regular position and put somebody else in charge. and i have not made any decisions on that. >> good yone.
as a president just said we just completed the white house coronavirus task force meeting. in the situation room. and we continue to implement the president's vision, not just for the whole of government response to the coronavirus but a whole of america. the focus of our task force today and going forward is on implementing the presidents public and private partnership on testing. focusing on ensuring that state and local authorities have the guidance and the support to ensure mitigation particularly in areas where we have seen community spread and we are continuing to leaning at the presidents direction on addressing capacity issues in
our hospitals and with regard to equipment. let me reiterate the presidents gratitude. not just for the team behind me and the team behind them and all of our federal agencies that are literally working every day to bring the whole of government approach to this. but we also want to commend all of the governors across the country. i will be speaking again to all the governors of all 50 states and territories tomorrow. but as the president said yesterday in the rose garden, we could not be more grateful. for all of the governors, particularly in those areas where we had community spread. for the seamless crop change cooperation take place. we commend local health authorities and all those are literally on the front lines. also grateful for all the businesses you saw in high relief yesterday. businesses around the country. in sports and entertainment and retail that are making decisions based on cdc guidelines. and good common sense to
protect the american people. and lastly as a president also said. we want to think the american people trade for listening to local authorities to listening to recommendations from the cdc. we will hear more about that in just a moment from doctor fauci and doctor burks. but as we are saying not surprisingly as we have seen in the past, the american people are all responding to look after not only their own health but their families and their communities. and one story after another is truly inspiring. to the president and to all of us. as you know it has been a brisk few days. the president declared a national emergency yesterday freeing up significant federal resources. for state and local authorities as well as our national response per the president announced that unprecedented public and private partnership on testing. let me say that at 5:00
tomorrow we will be detailing the progress that our team is making. i can tell you they are literally working around the clock with private companies and we are very pleased that thermo fisher was approved last night by the fda in record time. to also be what is a high throughput test. that will increase the capacity of this public and private partnership again, details on that in terms of when the local sites will be available at cvs and walgreens and walmart and other locations. what committees the will initially be available in. when the website will go online as well as how this will continue to rollout. 5:00 p.m. tomorrow eastern standard time, we will detail that could last night the house of representatives passed legislation which addressed the priorities of president trump had laid out for the american
people in the weeks before that. i want to join president trump in thinking speaker pelosi, leader mccarthy, the republicans and democrats in the house of representatives who the president said earlier today pulled together to pass legislation. that is meeting this moment in the bipartisan health first spirit that the american people would expect. the secretary of the treasury will detail the legislation but to be clear, the deal that passed the house last night will head to the senate early next week and delivers on the president's plan for strong health and economic support. particularly focused on those most impacted including hard- working blue-collar americans who may not currently have paid family leave today. it provides free coronavirus testing for uninsured americans and it builds on the decision that president trump made
expanding coverage for medicare, medicaid and also getting a commitment from private health insurance companies to join with us to waive all co-pays on coronavirus testing. so no testing will be free for every american. those who have insurance, medicare, medicaid and other programs and even the uninsured. legislation also establishes tax credits that the secretary of the treasury will explain. i expect doctor burks and doctor fauchi real reiterate this. if you're sick now you need not to be concerned. if you're an hourly wage earner in america you don't have to be concerned about staying home. if you're sick, you will not miss a paycheck your employer including small businesses have the ability pro
flex ability to ensure the senior citizens, women, children and low income families have access to emergency nutritional assistance and incentivizes states to ease access to unemployment benefits. the president and i are profoundly painful for the bipartisan spirit and let me all also say how grateful we are to the secretary of the treasury in the long hours he put in negotiating this measure. let me see also that last night at midnight's the department of homeland security implemented the president's decision to suspend all travel from europe passing through 13 airports. acting secretary wolf will detail the implementation of that. to be clear, countries where we have suspended travel under section 212 f, americans may
still return to the united states and legal residents may still return. they are being screened at some 13 airports as we speak. if they are identified as being symptomatic for any illness, there is additional response on- site. but those americans are being encouraged to return home and self quarantine for 14 days. that started at midnight last night. and secretary will detail it. in a few moments i will ask doctor fauci to update us on cases as well as current cdc guidance for all americans. and all of you are already aware that this week we issued specific guidance to about a half a dozen states where we saw committee spread. doctor burks will touch briefly on the public privacy plan and speak about what the data is showing at this moment about the best guidance for every america american. our acting secretary wolf want
to join the present on commending the crease line industry. a five percent of domestic crews lines and us they will suspend crews line operations for a period of 30 days. and chad wolf will explain what that means and commend the crease line industry for working with us. and we met last week on this day with crews line industry and work of the next 30 days to implement new policies that to ensure when crews line start back up they will be safer and healthier places than ever before with a great industry with american people loving it and enjoying it and make sure it's there for many years to come and as the president foreshadowed at the task force meeting today, the president made a decision to suspend all travel from united kingdom and
travel effective midnight monday night eastern standing time. chad wolf will describe details. as the president suggested all health experts presented information doctor fauci will reflect on some numbers that we suspend all travel from and ireland that will be suspended monday night. americans from uk and ireland can come home. legal residents can come home but the secretary will detail that we funneled through specific airports and process. we continue to emphasize that the risk of serious illness for the average american remains low. but the data shows that seniors with serious underlying are the most wonderful population for the people most assessable to sears medical outcomes. and we'll talk about the presence decision yesterday to
restrict all visitors and measures we have taken and so important for all of us and all of us who are blessed to have senior citizens in our family. like my 88-year-old mom. let's look after her. seniors with serious underlying conditions and make sure every american around them is practicing the best kind of hygiene and the best kind of measures to ensure that they are not exposed. and also we will hear from doctor carson and the surgeon general before we wrap up and take some questions. and let me recognize doctor tony fauchi on where we stand and recommendations and guidance. and thank you very much just a quick review of the numbers as of late afternoon yesterday. let me start off quickly globally and then will go to the united states. and right now there's 129
countries that have involvement with coronavirus pedal globally the numbers are 132+ thousand so it's a little bit more than 132,000 at about 7500 or new cases. importantly this is something we mentioned over the last couple of days. that if you look at what is formally the main feeder of this coronavirus outbreak was china. they have 80,000 or 81,000 new cases but only 11 new cases and only seven new deaths. things have switched over now to outside of china. which is actually triggered our decision, the decision of the president to do travel restrictions and other areas. in others besides china. and it's important to recognize that because when this is all over and it will and, you see a curve how the coronavirus evolved. you mentioned homogeneous because countries will do this and that. and see it with china and
starting to sit with gray which brings us now to what will expect in our own country. there are about 226 including the repatriation's. 50 deaths and 532 new cases. and nine new deaths. which means we have not reached our peak. we see more cases and see more suffering and death predominately as the vice president said among the vulnerable's in our society. individuals with the conditions that we spoke to and the elderly. but built in that is a challenge. the challenge is that we still have the opportunity to influence the course of that curve. so what we would like to see is that when this is all over, our curve was not like that. our curve was like this. so the reason why we are implementing to implement thing the things we're trying that. and as a comment about your
separate is a physician which i primarily m who takes care of patients every day for doing this, is that there are things that happened yesterday that i think are going to be really important to the people out there who are going to be impacted by this but are tickly by the physicians beta that is the president declared a state of national emergency because that will be what i thought the word that i use is essentially on shackling us from any of the things that will get in the way of our implementing. particular new powers giving to the new secretary of hhs and the departments in his agency particular cms which you will hear emotionally. within that group particular the nursing home situation which we got to really protect. at the other thing is we always get asked about testing. you saw the ceo out there and now it's all systems go. let's look forward. the responsibility will be with us but also with them because as we get knowledge about testing, we will alleviate the anxiety we have in the world
about what we don't know what's going on but will also give the individual physician and individual citizens the opportunity to know where the standard of stop there and happy to answer questions later. thank you. >> you have been listening life to the press conference being held at the white house at this hour. we heard from president trump and heard from vp mike pence and also from doctor fauci to summers really quickly main point of that. president trump did say that he did get tested for coronavirus last night and said his temperature was taken before he went into the press conference today and that it was normal. they talked about the new restrictions on european travel or from your p trouble. they have added the uk and ireland to the list. the rest of the countries that were not being allowed to have people come into the united states with the exception ofleg this addition of uk and ireland would be affect my net. they spoke about the bill that
sailed through the house that will meet the senate tomorrow. and food for children seniors and more importantly and free testing as soon as they get those test to anyone who wants to be tested for coronavirus. >> there are a few more people speaking about the various different areas of the things being put into place by the federal government right now. we are string that live on our facebook page if you want to continue to what separate us first, we will have weather when we come back after the break. be right back.
