California's San Quentin Prison Was Free of the Virus. One Decision Fueled an Outbreak.

California's San Quentin Prison Was Free of the Virus. One Decision Fueled an Outbreak.

"California's one of the large states that has having a large surge in corona virus, cases and hospitalizations right now Arizona of courses in terrible shape right now. Texas is in terrible shape Florida, starting to get really terrible really fast. All three of those states are now having hospitals overrun while their case numbers hospitalization numbers just keep climbing every day scary. but California's having a real problem too, and here's something really specific. That's going on in. California, that was not just like a bad situation that arose from the Meyer of this epidemic in California part of their big problem, right now was a single screw up a bad mistake that has now set off. What is really a disaster? Here's what happened. By mid April one of the largest state prisons in California had run of outbreak. It started as just a handful of cases at the California State Prison in Chino. But it soon became dozens of cases, prisoners and staff alike. At the time there were more than forty two hundred men imprisoned at Chino that's nearly twenty percent more than the capacity. That prison was built to handle and of course. You know by their very nature. Correctional facilities and specifically overcrowded correctional facilities like Chino was just a hot bread for any hotbed for any sort of. Contagious, illness and sort of outbreak. So when they knew that in mid. April it was no wonder that by the following month by May. Corona virus had just run through every dorm, used to house prisoners at Chino. By the end of May there were six hundred and thirty five confirmed cases at Chino. There were nine men dead. Given the crisis, they had on their hands. The State Department of Corrections along with the State Attorney Journal decided that they would transfer all bunch of prisoners out of that prison out of Chino, and they would send them to other prisons in the state. One of those prisons was the infamous prison just north of San Francisco called Quenton now. At the time San Quentin had actually been doing very well and beating back the epidemic so well in fact at the time. San Quentin had no infections saint. Quentin had no corona virus infections in March. In April and it may. But then came this influx of prisoners from China, which had a terrible problem there more than one hundred twenty prisoners were transferred from Chino to that facility at San Quentin and they'd all been tested at some point before transfer. But. It wasn't like they were particularly sticklers timing it right off the bat. They knew problems. Many of the prisoners hadn't been tested for coronavirus for up to a month. Before they got sent from China to this new prison at San Quentin. And so at Saint Quentin within days. They get the sides of their first infections. In the month, or so since those transfers San Quentin has now become the largest corona virus outbreak in California. There have now been more than fifteen. Hundred confirmed cases at San, Quentin alone and at least six deaths. Three of those deaths just came this weekend. And amidst this huge spike in more than fifteen hundred cases at San Quentin. Well now, the top medical officer for California prisons has been fired. And now with the virus, having spread unabated throughout San Clinton. It is I mean there's no wonder that a lot of people are worried a lot of different levels starting of course with prisoners. And with their families recently, we had the chance to speak with the mother of one prisoner at San Clinton and her name is Rita Zavala. And she told us this about her son's cellmate, recently testing positive and how her son is living now. Are Man their lives matter to. Just like everybody else. And they should be treated like. Animals? That so like they are treating them like. Just let him sit there. You know if you make it. Oh, good, if not allow you know. That's not how treated human. Stage they got there, but they're paying for their mistake. You know being in prison. But my son was. But I feel like he is now because I don't know. If he if he is going to get the virus, and not is GonNa make it through the by rich because of their medical is not the greatest. You know. Last point raised by Ms Avella is critical one. It's the it's not just the number of men that are dying at San. Quentin, that is the cost for alarm. It's also the huge number of prisoners who are positive there now who are requiring medical care and they're requiring advanced medical care, which means they're getting not just the prison itself, but within the whole local healthcare system, some hospitals within reaching distance of San Clinton, have become so taxed already by San Quentin prisoners filling up their issues that they're no longer accepting any transfers of California state prisoners to their facilities situations gotten bad enough that one local doctor told our NBC news affiliate and San Francisco. That San Quentin is the Chernobyl of covid.

"Tonight New York City Exiting Crow virus lockdown after seventy eight days and a death toll larger than all but six countries. This is cases are trending up now. In twenty two states across this country Nagwa is out front. One hundred days since New York. State's first case in the big apple is back well. They're now allowing more retail manufacturing and construction with some strict parameters. It is the day. That, we start to liberate ourselves from this disease. The day we moved forward phase, one of the restart begins today in new. York City. Let's not forget the terrible toll on this city nearly twenty two thousand deaths so far and black and Latino next New Yorkers, dying at twice the rate of white residents, and it's not over two not out of the woods, but we are on the other side certainly. The governor Rhodes the subway to his daily briefing this morning. The message it's safe. We are continuing our decline. The rest of the country is still spiking. Florida has added more than one thousand new cases a day for five straight days. Texas, another early reopener, now adding an average of over fifteen hundred cases a day. That's up fifty percent Bucks County PA announced thirty.

If you will, we had the memorial weekend, a lot of folks for being very lax and relaxed about precautions in been having a backdrop of states realty plus all the protesters in these mass gatherings. Protests sparked by George. Floyd's death might be spreading this virus around the country. I don't want to catch it I don't think anyone's to catch it. But when it comes to issues, social justice that takes president. I feel like Cova. Nineteen is going to be here for a little bit. Hopefully will get a vaccine. The White House has a vaccine program. It's called operation. Warp speed, but today to prominent professors say they're scared. It might move to foster given how this president has behaved.

"Geez. Casket of George Floyd on public display Houston this hour. Thousands of people have turned out to pay their respects exactly two weeks after floyd died under the knee of a Minneapolis police officer, joining us now, bishop td jakes. The founder and senior pastor of the Potter's House Bishop. Jakes, thank you so much for joining us. What role do you want? Churches and other faith communities to play in the path forward. Well first of all well, thank you for having me. delighted to be with you I think that churches have an obligation. Not to look the other way on this issue, but to become involved as a part in a significant part, particularly the African American community and being involved in providing solutions and guiding the process, because we're not just looking at the deterioration of the criminal justice system, which has been corroding for some time, but we're also looking at the deterioration of trust in the community and when you lose. Lose Trust as a leader and as an official, the consequences can be absolutely devastating and there too high for us to pay. We have to do something to restore trust an important point. You've also pointed out that black clergy here in the United States have led the fight for social justice. So, what would you want to see now? From white faith leaders and white Americans in general. I am starting to see that I'm I'm very encouraged by a large portion of growing portion I should say. Of White clergy becoming involved in an even larger amount of the white community, recognizing that this is not a black problem to be uh, segregated and relegated off to our community, but it is an American problem. When you look at some of the atrocities that have happened. Even in Buffalo with seventy five year, old white man is not just us when you look at what happened to their Australian. Reporters trying to report. It's not just us it's it's a derelict of responsibility and duty and insensitivity to using the least of force necessary to handle a situation has become a thing of the past, and so it's everybody's problem and everybody all over the world is starting to speak out about that's a fair point as well the other day, a chance to speak with the Reverend Michael Curry the presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church you here in the United States. He said now is the time to make a decision about what kind of people his words what kind of people we are going to be. What does that look like? What does that look like to you? Think, you know a myriad of ideas of being thrown against the wall, but I think at the end of the day. It is a mutual respect. The restoration of a pursuit of equality, the correction of hundreds and hundreds of years of injustice that has kind of been swept under the rug and We have been told pretty much to suck it up and be forgiving and go about our business, while you can be forgiving as hard to forgive somebody. Still Stop it on your foot and I. Think it took a knee on the net. To Wake America up that. Neil on a football field wasn't quite as bad as we thought and I think we can get a lot done. Once. We began to reevaluate How how we? Our brethren family, how we are interconnected how there's more to unite us in there is to divide us, but we have to have an equal seat at the table, our voices to be heard and almost every aspect of our systematic influence, whether it's education whether it's entertainment whether it's criminal justice, we are way underrepresented and there has to be. Some changes made well sad bishop td Jakes I always good to hear from you. Thank you so much for joining us. Thank you for having me have a good day. To coming up the latest on the corona virus pandemic was clearly continues New York City finally begins to reopen corona virus cases are surging and other states, and the world just recorded a very disturbing milestone. DC protests continuing here in the nation's capital. Right outside the. White House also in new. York. People are marching. They're protesting once again in new. York City as we watched, the demonstrators moved down the streets. We're also seeing some important major developments right now in corona via pandemic New York City finally starting to reopen, but it comes amid a very disturbing rise in cases in many states, and indeed around the world, the World Health Organization and now says that yesterday was the largest one day rise in corona virus cases is globally ever. Let's get some more from C. N. N.'s Nick One. One hundred days since New York State's first case in the big apple is back well. They're now allowing more retail manufacturing and construction with some strict parameters. It is the day that we start to liberate ourselves from this disease. The day we move forward phase one. The restart begins today in New York. City, let's not forget the terrible toll on this city nearly twenty two thousand deaths so far and black and Latino New Yorkers dying at twice the rate of white residents, and it's not over to a not out of the woods, but we are on the other side certainly. Governor Rhodes the subway to his daily briefing this morning. The message it's safe. We are continuing our decline. The rest of the country is still spiking. Florida has added more than one thousand new cases a day for five straight days Texas another early reopener now, adding an average of over fifteen hundred cases a day. That's up fifty percent governor Abbott has had an inadequate and weak response. That has been based on politics than on science. He opened up the state too early Bucks County PA announced thirty three new cases. Saturday eleven of them tied to one person who they say has been partying down at the Jersey shore kind of coming together with a perfect storm if you will, we had the Memorial Day weekend. A lot of folks were being very lax and relaxed about precautions, and you've been having a backdrop of states reopening plus all the protesters in these mass gatherings. The protests sparked by George. Floyd's death might be spreading this virus around the country. I don't want to catch anyone to it. But when it comes to issues of social justice that takes President I. Feel like Cova Nineteen is GonNa. Be here for a little bit. Hopefully, we'll get a vaccine. The White House has a vaccine program. It's called Operation Warp speed, but today to prominent professors say they're scared. It might move to thoughts given how this president has behaved. This incredibly dangerous scenario is not farfetched. They wrote in a New York Times op-ed in a desperate search for a political boost. He could release a corona virus vaccine before it had been thoroughly tested and shown to be safe. And effective. Now the big question. Did the lockdown work well? Researchers at UC Berkeley. Say absolutely they estimate the just the first few weeks of shutting everything down here in the US prevented perhaps sixty million infections, but the price we're paying. Both the US is now officially in a recession has been since. February back to you are nick. Thank you, Nick Lot reporting coming up president trump To cost the de-fund police departments after nine members of the Minneapolis City Council announced their support for dismantling.

"High in San Francisco expected to be seventy degrees seventy six in Oakland eighty one in San Jose highs of eighty six in Concord in Santa Rosa today expected this is weekend edition from NPR news I'm Scott Simon hospitals are struggling to keep up with the fight against covert nineteen St Anthony hospital in Chicago's south Lawndale neighborhood has also been fighting for its financial health hospital says in a lawsuit the state of Illinois is it Medicaid reimbursements and of course in the meantime the virus continues to ravage its community and the hospital tries to still serve and protect Dr Alfredo mena Laura is the medical director of infection prevention at Saint Anthony hospital in Chicago Dr thanks so much for being with us thank you very much for inviting me I gather you've had to do some improvising haven't you yes I think this pandemic came with a lot of challenges and P. P. and overall acquisition of materials that frankly in normal times we take for granted we've all had to try to improvise and open different supply lines we've received donations of PP and we had to improvise with R. Kelly wipes as well the whites that we used to clean surfaces well tell us what you've done with that it's interesting how at a time a significant need of course not just in our city and in our hospital but worldwide it's expected that some of the supply lines have been under stress but we were able to find a formula to create our own disinfectant and using kind of a bucket in the formula we create our own wipes and with that we develop it every day and we are using it to be able to improvise and be able to continue delivering high quality care and being able to clean our work areas and other places as well tell us what covered nineteen is meant in in your community or neighborhood which is F. as a fellow Chicagoan I would call a little village yes so little village and Lawndale is a community in the west side of Chicago and in general our hospital has been serving this community for over one hundred years old nineteen has you know we're all used to feeling like we're in pods in our kids are not going to school we can't do certain activities but to a certain extent cove in nineteen has accelerated a lot of things as well and there are health disparities in north Lawndale in Lawndale and little village the areas that are hospital services that have been there before called it however hold it and you know a lot of this it's unclear a hundred percent why perhaps due to pre existing conditions like diabetes and hypertension these are the same groups of patients that are experiencing a much higher mortality but at the same time it's a community where it's harder to practice quarantine and there are other social economic and cultural issues that may affect that as well and that too is about it's harder to practice quarantine because a lot of people may not understand what you're talking about I'm afraid absolutely we have seen many of our patients are essential workers and many of our patients may be working in delivery or supermarkets and similarly their households may have other members and another important barrier may be education materials and the language that some of these communities are primarily Latin X. at the moment as well and therefore sometimes implementing views and disseminating information can be a barrier as well and we we we can't successfully get into the into the lawsuit here representing all sides but the hospital

little village the areas that are hospital services that have been there before because of it however hold it and you know a lot of this it's unclear a hundred percent why perhaps due to pre existing conditions like diabetes and hypertension these are the same groups of patients that are experiencing a much higher mortality but at the same time it's a community where it's harder to practice quarantine and there are other social economic and cultural issues that may affect that as well and that too is about it's harder to practice quarantine there's a lot of people may not understand what you're talking about I'm for it absolutely we have seen many of our patients are essential workers and many of our patients may be working in delivery or supermarkets and similarly their households may have other members and another important barrier may be education materials and the language that some of these communities are primarily Latin next at the moment as well and therefore sometimes

Dr. Atul Gawande: We need a national shelter-in-place

"As Corona virus cases flood the United States Healthcare System orderlies nurses and doctors are taking extra steps and making harder decisions as they maintain. The health of the American public are highlight guests. Today on the pod is one of those essential care workers dr a tool. Gwanda of Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston he's written about those decisions and crucial methodologies in two of his books the checklist manifesto and being mortal both should definitely be on your isolation bookshelf. They're fantastic. He's a surgeon a staff writer for the New Yorker Andy's the CEO of haven the new and still quiet joint health care venture between J. P. Morgan Amazon and Berkshire Hathaway back in two thousand eighteen. That venture was just getting off the ground. Jp Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon and Berkshire CEO. Warren Buffet told our own becky. Quick about their chosen leader for the new venture at the time. Dr Gomez identity was mystery. Oh and the Jeff. You'll hear Warren Buffett Mention Jeff bezos. We have the right CEO. I'm very enthused about it. I Know Gay me and Jeff are to have. We have announced any individual character culture capability. Heart mind the whole thing now. Of course we know who that individual is and we were privileged to hear from him this morning on Squawk box. Here's Becky quick. Kicking off the conversation with a tool. Gwanda doctor go on day. Thank you for being with us today. Glad to be here you wrote an article for the New Yorker. That really caught our attention and I was hoping you could shed a little light on. What's happening here? You talked about what happened in China. How their first response in Wuhan failed but how they came back so much stronger and really managed to contain things when you talk a little bit about those extreme measures that they took and whether or not. You think we can do that here. Well there was China including than Hong Kong reacting than Singapore and there are lessons coming from all of Asia that suggests there's a few critical elements. First of all you got to recognize. This is a national epidemic and we haven't woken up to that. I'm worried I'm worried about what's emerging in a bunch of cities not just in New York. We'RE TALKING NEW ORLEANS. Atlanta DALLAS MIAMI DETROIT PHILADELPHIA. Chicago are death. Poker curve is now worse than when China was at the same stage. We have twelve states with more than fifteen hundred cases. China had won province so on you know what what works on the flip side. Washington state is flattening the death toll curve and there are some key steps borrowed from that experience in Asia shelter in place which some states are doing. We are about twenty. We don't have the others on board. And we need it really a national shelter in place. It's physical distancing and really being critical about that it's testing tracing contacts and then there's work to do recognize hospitals cannot become sources of infection. And we've got to make that not happen like it's happening in Italy and Spain. How do we do that? Well the the lesson out of Singapore and Hong Kong in particular that I drove into. And you're seeing IT AND SOUTH KOREA'S WELLS. There's a playbook and the playbook includes that healthcare workers when they come into work. They have a daily symptom check to make sure they don't have symptoms of covert nineteen. They go home if they don't and they have a surgical mask From the moment that they come into work in throughout the day taking care of any patients. That's not just because you keep them from getting affected. It's that they're picking up infections in the community and they see it keeps them from spreading infection to others and that's and that's really the critical thing another another part of their playbook which I think is really interesting. They found that they did not have to automatically quarantine staff workers when they were exposed to a corona virus patient. They only needed to Corentin in Singapore. They did it only if it was greater than thirty minutes at less than six feet from the person for If you didn't have a surgical mask and otherwise people kept going. And they had no transmissions in the healthcare space and I think healthcare turns out to be so important because we're learning now. What keeps healthcare workers safe? That's going to show us how we can get everybody back to work safely in Italy. I read that something like eight point. Three percent of the cases that they've reported have been healthcare workers. They're not doing any of that. They weren't doing this and And Not really committing to it. Frankly we haven't been doing it either. Right as of I wrote this article about a week ago today We now have most hospitals starting to flip into taking these core measures. But but it's still way too slow in the hospital setting. We need to have that process where you know when you come into work. You are checked for an asked. Do you have have you had had a feeling of fever today. Have you had a call new cough new shortness of breath? New Loss of taste is be turned out to be a potential indicator of Kovin. It's turning up as a as a problem and Any new muscle aches. And if you do you stay home. you have to Self to self isolate for a period of time. What we should do is be able to offer tests and more and more places are able to offer healthcare workers tests so they know if If they really can come back that that part is critical and then having masks while we're while we're at work supplies are critical issue. So in some places we have to ration the masks in my hospital I get one mask for the day and and that's and that's the way it's gotTa work. Dr Go onto one of the questions I wanted to ask you is. There is a conversation happening in financial circles and in the White House about the cure being worse than the disease. And I'm hoping you can speak to that from medical perspective but also from an economic perspective because some people look at this and say if there is a financial crisis that is lasting their health impacts from that. How do you think about that? I know you spent a lot of time thinking about all of this in a national epidemic Where it's picking up speed in places that haven't had it. The economic damage is going to be worse. If we don't lockdown understand that there's this talk like you know it's only the elderly and the and the frail who get sick They are at risk of dying but look at people just middle aged forty five years old. A quarter of them need to be hospitalized. In order to survive when they have this virus and about five to ten percent of them need to be on a ventilator for days you have this sweep through infect sixty million people. We're done we will not be able to have those people Forget getting them back to work. We will not have those people come through and survive if we can't actually take care of them so you know the idea that that this is that you know maybe we should just go back to work And and this will all be fine and just just let those old folks get sick. Or maybe we'll quarantine the nursing homes. That's not GonNa do it. Doctor mentioned the shortage that we have when it when it comes to supplies What about the potential shortage when it comes to healthcare workers either? Those who get self quarantined those who get the virus. Those who don't feel comfortable working in that environment because they're afraid of exposing their family. Yeah I mean here in Boston. We have more than one hundred healthcare workers who tested positive largely from virtually all from picking it up in the community. But we're finding that the practices that you borrow those from Singapore and Hong Kong. They're able to keep spread from happening. They're able to keep the workers safe the critical things that we gotta have our Masks and gloves and those are so far. We've got supply for the next few days. I see the supply chains continuing to improve. There's there's been this lag we didn't get on it early enough And so when I talked to the manufacturers I talked to the to the government officials were seeing that there is product. Getting into the pipeline. And then you know it's distribution is imperfect we will get through it but the next couple of weeks are not going to be great and so yes we have to make sure. Those healthcare workers are priority. If you have masks any any of your business get them into your

in a bit coming up we're gonna talk to the director of FIU's infectious disease department Dr alien Marty about what you need to know about the corona virus now that it's here in the Tampa Bay area she is the best person to talk to you about something like this so we'll ask her about all kinds of different questions from things that that people are seeing online myths will debunk some of that kind of stuff will explain what you need to do to prepare we've got that for you in a few plus or to talk to the publisher Florida politics dot com Peter Schorsch he broke the story of the two confirmed cases here in the state and we're gonna get his thoughts on how the governor for the Surgeon General are handling the response and of course we'll recap the South Carolina primary big win for Joe Biden and we'll preview tomorrow's super Tuesday primaries all of that and more on the way we kick things off with our top story today an update on the corona virus outbreak last night we got confirmation that Florida is dealing with its first two cases of the virus this is what we now two people in the Tampa Bay area have tested presumptive positive for corona virus or the other name that it's called you'll be seeing this a lot online and hearing it on the news Kobe nineteen according to state Surgeon General Dr Scott riff keys a woman in her twenties who tested positive in Hillsborough County after having recently traveled to northern Italy where the outbreak is pretty bad she's in stable condition and is in isolation at home the other case is a bit more concerning officials don't know how the second patient a man in his sixties from manatee county contracted the disease is in travel to any of the high risk areas identified by the CDC riff keys said the man has been hospitalized for pneumonia when he tested presumptive positive for corona virus he remains hospitalized in stable condition they don't know how we got it we've seen this in Washington state in California other areas this is what you hear experts refer to as potential community spread also Sarasota military academy announced today that a student and his mother were quarantined due to the mother's contact with the patient at Sarasota doctors hospital in her professional role here is the total breakdown for Florida the state has monitored seven hundred ninety five people for corona virus with a hundred eighty four people still being monitored now twenty three have been tested for the disease riff keys said the state learned about the first case the manatee county man after he tested positive Saturday evening morning get back to that time line in a moment officials went on to say the threat in the state remains low but the governor said they do anticipate that more people will test positive in Florida that's a given he also declared a public health emergency to better equip the state with resources needed to handle the threat another big development is weekend was the announcement of Florida now has three labs one in Tampa one of Miami and one in Jacksonville the contest for corona viruses going to speed up the process quite a bit now results will be back within twenty four to forty eight hours as opposed to first having to mail the task it out to the CDC if the test comes back positive then the state will send samples to the CDC for further confirmation that's what's happening with both the Hillsborough and manatee county cases now let me go back to the states response to the first to confirm coronavirus cases in Florida again they waited twenty four hours to notify the public Florida politics broke the story late last night but rumors were swirling about it all day ABC action news reported they learned about the potential of a corona virus patient at a Sarasota hospital at nine thirty AM Sunday but when a reporter called not the case the Sarasota county health department dismissed the report as a hoax in turn out to be a hoax pretty big mistake this follows a massive lack of transparency about the hepatitis a outbreak and and then you had the ridiculous response the other day from state officials the testing numbers couldn't be released because of privacy concerns which is complete nonsense this is why the state's should be transparent it creates the impression first of all the government is on top of the problem it also creates a heightened sense of awareness you don't want panic but you don't want people to pay attention and to know what's going on to be well informed not providing information makes government look like they're either hiding something or they're incompetent neither of which builds confidence among the public in what our government officials are doing the information is gonna come out one way or another better to come from state officials rumors don't start spreading that's how you end up with misinformation being disseminated just be up front about it I don't understand the hesitancy to do that here's the latest overall numbers taking a big picture look at corona virus over ninety thousand cases worldwide over three thousand deaths over forty five thousand people over covered seventy four hundred are in serious or critical condition the majority of the cases still originate from China although the outbreak is now growing faster outside of China South Korea has seen the biggest surge in cases with over forty three hundred people infected Italy has seen a surge to their total now eclipses two thousand cases and the numbers are set to rise quite a bit across Europe and Germany Spain and the UK seeing quite a few new cases Arron they're also struggling to deal with an outbreak within their borders they have over fifteen hundred cases and sixty six reported deaths although both of those numbers are believed to be much lower than the reality on the ground there here in the US this is what we learned as of this evening the latest numbers forty three domestic cases with six deaths originating in Washington state there's forty eight other cases of individuals who returned to the U. S. that's the difference and if you take a look at the the break down you've got eighteen cases in California eighteen in Washington state that's where you have six people have passed away from corona virus Illinois has four organised three Rhode Island has to Florida has to then Arizona Massachusetts New Hampshire New York and Wisconsin all have one on the forty eight number you've got forty five who were repatriated from that cruise ship and then you've got three who were repatriated from Wuhan in an interview earlier today doctor found G. D. U. S. director for infectious diseases said and I'm quoting here we're dealing with an emerging infectious disease there's now reached outbreak proportions and likely pandemic proportions the United States might have to consider social mitigation acts like temporarily closing schools and events with large crowds in confined spaces we're not ready for right now but we need to be at least thinking about the possibility he also thinks the two and a half percent mortality rate is a bit high because we don't have a handle on how many cases there actually are he thinks it could go down to around one percent once we know the full scope of how the disease's spread one percent still significant and a tire in the flu or H. one N. one but better than the numbers indicate now there there are definitely more than just forty three cases here in the U. S. domestic cases that the numbers probably far higher than that but we're catching up on the testing side so we just don't know yet it's not it's not a situation of the government's withholding numbers were just just now ramping up broad hi testing across you know here in Florida all across the country finally to wrap up on a on a positive development the Dow Jones finished up over five percent closing almost thirteen hundred points up so huge rebound for the markets look the markets are gonna have big days are gonna have bad days it's gonna be a mixed bag for a while well there's so much uncertainty and as you know new information comes in they might take a bit of a hit and then my rebound a bit it's gonna be a rocky ride acting for quite a bit coming up in a moment we're gonna talk to FIAU director of infectious diseases Dr Alene Marty she's going to tell us what we need to know about the corona virus now that it is here in the Tampa Bay area don't let your child be ready for kindergarten at Chester brook academy preschool the answer is yes offers the perfect balance of learning and play our teachers personalize that experience.
