Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Williams Day. Eleven hundred forty-seven of the trump administration two hundred and thirty seven days to go until the twenty twenty presidential election with the number of corona virus cases growing with the postponement of major events and the economic toll intensifying Donald Trump spoke to the nation tonight from the Oval Office and unveiled brand new travel restrictions. The European Union failed to take the same precautions and restrict travel from China and other hot spots as a result. A large number of new clusters in the United States were seated by travelers from Europe. We will be suspending. All travel from Europe to the United States for the next thirty days to new rules will go into effect Friday at midnight. There will be exemptions for Americans who have undergone appropriate screenings. And these prohibitions will not only apply to the tremendous amount of trade and cargo but various other things as we get approval anything coming from Europe to the United States is what we are discussing. These restrictions will also not apply to the United Kingdom at the same time we're monitoring the situation in China and the South Korea within the past hour. The Acting Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security posted a tweet saying the travel restrictions don't apply to American citizens or legal permanent residents or their families. Which makes it difficult to exactly see how this will prevent the spread of the virus. Also the White House issued a clarification saying the president misspoke and the band does not apply to cargo either. The travel ban is one of several steps. The president discussed hours after the world. Health Organization declared this new virus pandemic tonight trump cancelled his planned visits this week to both Colorado and Nevada. We're also learning not long ago. That Corona virus concerns have prompted the NBA to scrap. Its entire remaining season quote until further. Notice we'll have much more on that coming up and this actor. Tom Hanks also making headlines after he posted on social media that he and his wife. Rita Wilson have tested positive for the virus saying quote we will be tested observed an isolated for as long as public health and safety requires. The illness has now spread to more than one hundred countries. More Than One hundred twenty thousand people have been infected worldwide. Tonight there are more than hundred cases in the United States. At nearly forty people have died this morning. Dr Anthony FAUCI head of the National Institutes of Allergy and infectious diseases. At a key member of the white. House's virus taskforce offered this dire prediction in his testimony before the House Oversight Committee we will see more cases and things will get worse than they are right now. How much worse will get will depend on our ability to do two things to contain the influx of in people who are infected coming from the outside and the ability to contain and mitigate within our own country bottom line. It's going to get worse. Was it a mistake to devout. She'd do believe to dismantle the office within the National Security Council charged with global health and security. I wouldn't necessarily characterize it as a mistake I would say we worked very well with that office. It would be nice if the office was still there now. New reports point to a shortage of critical testing materials as well as the test. Kits themselves that continues to hobble. The nation's efforts to deal with the virus a concern. The president did not discuss tonight. Some hospitals and commercial labs are working to increase their screening for possible cases and many state and local officials are no longer waiting for federal help to protect their residents. New York State is going to take matters into. Its own hand. We're going to start contracting with private labs in the state to increase our testing capacity. Remember again the chronology. We started several weeks ago. Cdc said they would do all the tests and they would send them to Atlanta. We said that was too little too late. This will greatly increase our testing capacity. We're not in a position where we can rely on the CDC or the FDA to manage this testing protocol. Viral outbreak put still more pressure on financial markets. Today the Dow shed almost fifteen hundred points a nearly six percent decline on the day now
