Anderson Cooper brings you highlights from CNN's premier nightly news program AC360.

    Pres. Trump says he thinks at some point Covid-19 will just disappear

    Pres. Trump says he thinks at some point Covid-19 will just disappear

    As the U.S. sees the highest single-day increase in new coronavirus cases, Pres. Trump repeats his claim that he thinks at some point the illness will just disappear.  Florida Democratic Congresswoman Donna Shalala and Clinton White House Chief of Staff Leon Panetta speak to AC360 about lack of guidance from President Trump. Also, former National Security Adviser to Pres. Obama Susan Rice reacts to reporting from CNN’s Jim Sciutto. Multiple former Trump administration officials who briefed the President told Sciutto that Trump's resistance to intelligence warnings about Russia led his national security team - including those who delivered the President's Daily Brief to him orally - to do so less often. “You don't intimidate the messengers .. this President is derelict in his duty as commander in chief to brush off information that is critical to the life and death of our service members and do so just because he doesn't want to hear bad news,” says Rice.

    Dr. Fauci warns U.S. could hit 100,000 cases a day

    With the U.S. seeing 40,000+ new cases a day, White House Coronavirus Task Force Member Dr. Anthony Fauci warned a Senate committee that new cases could rise to 100,000 a day. Colorado just became the 18th state to pause or roll back their reopening plans. William Haseltine, Chair and President of ACCESS Health International, tells Anderson Cooper because the country is lacking leadership from the President, governors and other local officials are stepping up to try and protect their states and cities. Plus, Democratic Senator Chris Murphy was one of the lawmakers asking Dr. Fauci and other Task Force members questions. He joins AC360 to discuss how coronavirus dominates everyone’s lives and says President Trump can’t just wish it away.

    At least 16 states have paused reopening plans

    At least 16 states have paused reopening plans

    Florida is one of at least 16 states that have paused or rolled back reopening plans. Governor Ron DeSantis suspended alcohol consumption in bars but has yet to put a statewide face mask requirement in place. Nikki Fried, Florida Commissioner of Agriculture and Consumer Services, says the governor needs to be more engaged and “get his head out of the sand.” Plus, sources tell CNN during hundreds of highly classified phone calls with foreign leaders, President Trump was consistently unprepared and posed a danger to national security. CNN Political Analyst and longtime journalist Carl Bernstein joins AC360 to discuss how sources told him some of Trump’s former top deputies concluded he was “delusional” in his dealings with foreign leaders.

    Pence: U.S. is opening “safely and responsibly” even as cases surge in many states

    Pence: U.S. is opening “safely and responsibly” even as cases surge in many states

    During the first White House Coronavirus Task Force briefing in nearly two months, Vice President Michael Pence claims Americans are seeing “encouraging news” despite 32 states across the country seeing an increase over the past week. Pence also defended the President’s recent rallies in Oklahoma and Arizona, two states seeing a spike in cases, saying Americans have freedoms of speech and assembly. Marc Lotter is the Director of Strategic Communications for Trump 2020. He joins AC360 and says even in the states with a jump in cases, masks shouldn’t be mandatory statewide and it should be up to the governors, mayor and local executives to put those rules in place. Plus, Texas was one of the first states to reopen but because of the volume of new cases, the Governor has “paused” the state’s phased economic reopening. Dr. Peter Hotez, Dean of the School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor University, tells AC360 Texas is in a better position with more people wearing masks and bars closed but he isn’t sure that will be enough to stop the virus.

    COVID-19 model projects nearly 180,000 deaths by fall

    COVID-19 model projects nearly 180,000 deaths by fall

    An influential COVID-19 model projects nearly 180,000 deaths in the U.S. by October 1. That number drops to 146,000 if 95% of Americans wear face masks. Dr. Chris Murray is the director of the group at the University of Washington that’s been working on the models. He joins AC360 to explain how wearing masks could not only save lives but also help the economy. Plus, House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler says the House “may very well” try to impeach Attorney General William Barr. This comes after a deputy to formal special counsel Robert Mueller who prosecuted the Roger Stone case testified in front of lawmakers that Stone was “treated differently from any every other defendant” because of his relationship to the President. Democratic Congressman Adam Schiff tells Anderson Cooper that what Barr has done with the DOJ is dangerous and there are two standards of justice: one for friends of the President and another for everyone else.

    Dr. Fauci: “We’re going to be doing more testing, not less”

    White House Coronavirus Task Force Member Dr. Anthony Fauci testified in front of a House committee on the Trump’s administration’s response to the pandemic and directly contradicted the President. “We’re going to be doing more testing, not less,” said Fauci. Dr. Richard Besser, former Acting Director of the CDC, tells Anderson Cooper the mixed messaging could result in some parts of the country slipping back to a worse situation than they were several months ago. Plus, Democratic Senator Kamala Harris joins AC360 to discuss police reform and explains why she thinks we need to “reimagine public safety.”

Mutate

I have read that Covid 19 has mutated. People should be made aware of this. Also Trump promised that Covid medical costs would be covered. I think you’d be interested to know that they are not. Sick people ate receiving huge medical bills!!!!
