Senate Hearing Recap: Reopening Amid The Coronavirus

"Tonight. A dire warning from Dr Anthony FAUCI reopening the country too soon during the corona virus crisis will cost lives. There is a real risk that you will trigger an outbreak that you might not be able to control which in fact have reduc sickly will set you back not only leading to some suffering and death. It could be avoided. Could even set you back on the road to TRY TO GET ECONOMIC RECOVERY. A reality check from the nation's top infectious disease expert which stands in stark contrast to president. Trump's push to reopen the country. Tuesday Senate hearing unlike any before with the witnesses and many senators appearing remotely by conference an all-too-familiar precaution in the pandemic four of the nation's top health officials responsible for the Federal Response Dr Fallacy. Cdc Director Robert Redfield FDA Commissioner Steven Hahn and Admiral Brett Jarar offering their unfiltered assessments among the takeaways. Dr Faucher cautioning. It's a bridge too far to expect Corona virus treatments or a vaccine in time for the fall school semester the head of CDC could not say when the agency will finally released detailed advice to states. About how and when to reopen public places like schools churches and restaurants. When is it going to be released? Because states are reopening right now and we need this additional guidance to make those decisions. I do anticipate this broader guidance. Oh It'd be posted on the CDC website. Soon I soon isn't terribly helpful. And Dr Ci says the already staggering corona virus. Death toll is likely higher than what's reported the official statistic. Dr Faucher is that eighty thousand Americans have died from the pandemic. There are some epidemiologist who suggests the number may be fifty percent higher than that of what do you think. I'm not sure Senator Sanders if it's going to be fifty percent higher but most of us feel that the number of deaths are likely higher than that number. There may have been people who died at home. Who did have who are not counted as Kobe because they never really got to? The hospital. Tuesday's hearing grew tense at times with Republican. Senator Rand Paul clashing with Dr Jason. We can listen to your advice but there are people on the other side. Tangiers not going to be a surge and then we can safely open the economy and I have never made myself out to be the end all and only voice of this. I'm a scientist. A physician at a public health official. I give advice. According the best scientific evidence as Democrat seized on shortcomings in the trump administration's response resident trump must acknowledge that the several responses in sufficient and that more people are dying as a result but there was one point of bipartisan agreement. One thing that's abundantly clear. We need dramatically more testing. Would our country had done so far. Intesting is impressive but not nearly enough. I find are testing record. Nothing to celebrate whatsoever now. The White House has made progress in expanding the country's testing capabilities in recent weeks though public health experts warned that millions more tests per week are needed to safely reopen. The Country Lester. Alright Jeff Bennett to the White House. Thank you and one of the most striking moments from Dr found today was during an exchange about kids and the risk of corona virus it comes as NBC News has learned the CDC is preparing to issue an alert to doctors nationwide about the signs and symptoms of that mystery. Illness believed linked to Cova. Nineteen with more. Here's Kristen Dahlgren. Today in Washington a tense exchange over kids and covert and what it means schools. Consider reopening much as I respect you doctor Pal. I don't think you're the end hall. I don't think you're the one person I guess to make a decision whether it's a huge mistake if we don't open the schools in the fall. I think we'd better be careful if we are not cavalier in thinking that children are completely uneven the deleterious effects but I am very careful and hopefully humble and knowing that I don't know everything about this disease the nation's top infectious disease doc pointing to the new inflammatory disease that appears to be impacting small but growing number of children today spokesperson for the CDC saying it's preparing a nationwide alert to help track pediatric multi-system Inflammatory Syndrome. Symptoms can include prolonged fever rash abdominal pain and the inflammation can attack organs like the heart or kidneys. At least three children died in cases now suspected in at least fourteen states New York now has one hundred cases it's probably in other states And probably hasn't been diagnosed yet in other states because again these children don't present the usual Kovic symptoms. Doctors say the syndrome appears to be a delayed inflammatory response to the virus. It's severe. It is the very rapidly in these children so they can go from having fevers to suddenly deteriorating over a short period of time fortunately their treatment that seemed to be working along today. Josie past fan went home after days in the. Icu recused just to recognize the symptoms. Get your child there so that they can get the treatment and new evidence today. Even kids without the inflammatory syndrome can get sicker with Cova. Nineteen than I thought. A new study from children's national found of one hundred seventy seven kids who tested positive one in four required hospitalization. Nearly forty percent of those had no underlying condition overall children are a fraction of those most seriously impacted by Cova but tonight growing evidence against the Assumption. They are completely safe.
