The White House sets a testing goal but will it be nearly enough?

"The White House has laid out its plans for re opening the country Assistant Secretary for health admiral Brett Gerard discusses the white house's testing plan with ABC's George Stephanopoulos there is a strong consensus out there that we're gonna need lots of testing to reopen the critics are saying the White House guidelines don't go far enough you need mandates the national strategy more funding here's what senator Patty Murray had to say your plan doesn't set specific minimum goals or for a time frame identify ways to fix our broken supply chain or offer any details whatsoever on expanding lab capacity or achieving needed manufacturing capacity what's your response to senator Murray home my response is the blueprint we did was meant to outline the roles and responsibilities as well as the core objectives of a testing and rapid response program I guess senator Murray just does not understand the details of what we're doing on a state by state basis our team has contacted or working with every single state D. C. Porter Rico to define really the specifics of what that state needs according to their state re opening plan and the two percent really is sort of a minimum floor there many states that want to do four percent six percent eight percent every month we have the supply chains figured out we know what we can supply the state so we really are much more sophisticated the overall strategy is a strategy it's not a state by state plan that's what we're doing individually with states there is no it's not just senator Murray's had this kind of criticism even of one of the president's strongest allies former governor Chris Christie of New Jersey say that the White House has sort of the president has to order the use of the defense production act to fix the supply chain to make sure every state has what it needs you know I'm in the middle of this everyone he's commenting is really on the periphery of it let me tell you the ground truth the ground truth is for most circumstances the DPA is not necessary because there's maximum production all the industries are working together on the supply chain related to testing there will be a DPA action today but it's not one of the forceful DPA actions it's a hand up it's an investment in American industry that will greatly expand the testing we need some of the testing supplies so that particularly by fall when we may have coded circulating with influenza and need drastically more tests than we have now will have the supplies that we need but the DPA has been used selectively when it's necessary but in most regards regarding certainly regarding testing it's really unnecessary but they hand up you will see will be will be implemented as necessary and I guess one of the big questions is is that hand up going to be enough I know you've seen this report from the experts at Harvard he say that we're gonna need to really open the economy to get started we're going to be needed neatly testing five million people a day in June a twenty million in July and that the guidelines you've laid out can't get us anywhere near that so we don't believe those estimates are really accurate nor are they reasonable in our society what we're talking about the two percent number let's just put that in context two percent per month is almost double the per capita rate that South Korea has achieved over the last four months accumulated this is a massive amount of test in in many states we're going to be doing four percent six percent eight percent according to the state guidelines we know for a fact that we can supply the states with the full supply chain the swabs the media the testing capability to achieve those goals and remember on this particularly in the summer it's not just about task because we can look at syndromes there is no influenza circulating in the summer so when someone comes in with an influenza like illness to the iolite network that is nationwide we'll have a good idea that that person is likely covert infected and concerts to that area so tests are absolutely important or critical they will be expanded dramatically as we re open but it's not the only tool we have in the tool box I know you're also working to dramatically expand the antibody test you satisfied now with the quality of the tests that are going to be going out in the states so as we stated many times particularly the point of care in a body test could be fraught with inaccuracies and that is why the national Cancer Institute along with the FDA and the CDC are really running the full panels of these test against what we believe is a gold standard you'll be seeing some of those results were really soon on many tests are just not up to par and some seem to be performing very very well and that's very very important and it actually took a whole appendix in the blueprint we talked about yesterday about why having a very highly specific test particularly for an antibody to talk about immunity is it's really critically important so you'll be seeing those results very soon

The uncertainty of the entertainment industry

"New shows and movies are getting made movie and TV studios have had to temporarily stop filming and send their crews home in order to help stop the spread of the corona virus so what happens when Hollywood gets shut down here to tell us is Tara lachapelle a media columnist for Bloomberg opinion so it tell us about the filming of vacation friends the vacation friends both new movies from twentieth century you DO IT if the comedy that within a star John Cena and it was in the middle middle of filming and Porter Rico because this movie is that on a vacation resort and they had to stop production two weeks from today and they still had about six weeks ago but everyone had to pack up and go home because of this pandemic and how to garner who's one of the idol makers on this movie he was talking about and everything podcast and and just think how you know they've never faced questions like that when I found that you know is it thank you for a make up artist be catching the actors faces and you know we're all working in such close quarters it is best okay so they decided to go home and it feels like it's just been a domino's a fact about the industry where every film and TV that I was in the middle of shooting decided you know what we have to just put this on hold sure does it go beyond scripted shows to every kind of show it's everything I mean there are reality TV shows that had to stop filming because they didn't want where you know crew that way if you're calling a different people informing them for them to Friday and so basically everything has been shut down even the friends three union national that a lot of people were looking forward to it with both the Eric next month hi Katie really H. B. O. mac is that new streaming service HBO and the country in the past would really like a headline show for that and it seems like that probably isn't going to happen now so it's basically everything I mean just the entire industry hi you can put a halt I was thinking about the streaming services because you want new content all the time if I don't see something new on Netflix in a week I'm like what's the problem here so it seems like they're really going to take a hit if they're true you know just like you said that's right now you know if you spend a lot of time watching Netflix there's great stuff on there but after awhile you started garland by Larry thought that I'm not really interested in that and you kind of feel like you run out of things even though there are thousands of hours of content on there not everything is something you want to watch and that's the same issue with all these different new streaming apps like business class and the in the car he cocked their veteran Comcast this month and H. B. O. Max next month where they're spending so much money in content but it will not gonna feel like it's not especially right now when so many people are home streaming more content than ever and there's nothing new flowing in you know all the shows that had highly anticipated return even like stranger things on Netflix and expression on HBO they were in the middle of shooting our next season and now that that that you know even before this when I look at some of the streaming services all see one or two shows that I like on each of them but all together like they had the one or two headlining shows that draw people in but the rest of it is less than desired that's going to be a really big problem I think while we're all sheltering at home because you know not only are we home but some of us are having you know we're going to furloughs or being laid off or experiencing some economic stress because of what's happening and so when you start to look at your monthly bill and you have H. B. L. at fifteen dollars a month and that like that thirteen and maybe have people you meet all these services really add up very quickly and like you said it's not like they all have the same contact if you want to watch Star Wars content nearly thirty five and if you want to watch the connection or you want to watch you know old episodes of game of thrones you need HBO and Netflix and all this other stuff so it becomes really difficult to manage all of these not to mention the frustration of trying to figure out where is that show that he won a lot the stock really gonna come to a head during all this where the industry is going to kind of faith that point where they need to realize that if the customer friendly and maybe they'll start to see people dropping in and out because of the cost what movies some are going straight to on demand with a hefty price tag for home admission how is that changing or might it change in the future the movie industry yeah that's really throwing the movie industry for a loop so for a long time you have been trying to shorten the theatrical window the time period that their movies are in theaters exclusively in Morrow with movie theaters closed a lot of these current releases have the option to stay you know what we're just going to get the theaters altogether instead of waiting for them to re open a we're gonna put it on demand which is exactly what universal pictures dead with the next hold movie they put on demand for twenty dollars to rent which is very expensive and then again if you're ready so it's not like you own the movie HD free watching it however with the next fast and the furious movie which is called after nine that movie was such a big budget film that universal really need the box office revenue that would complement of releasing the film this spring they're holding off until next spring the user having a big is really difficult decision and it begs the question of what's going to happen down the road to theater scheduled how are we going to stop all these different movies and you don't only play so many movies especially blockbusters on a given weekend so this is going to become really challenging and especially for the theater operator because they were already hurting they already have so much that they're close now and they're building believing some of their leverage because the ball there and when they come out of it it remains to be seen how the industry moved on from

S. territory of Puerto Rico though just saying morning David how you doing do it all right to how's your week start now concerned tomorrow or today technically we're we're we're very concerned down here I mean we're talkin and and and I I I I honestly don't think this is going to happen I I I I think it'd be peaceful I believe in our our law enforcement I think you're ready I think you're ready and willing I think they'll take care of this and it will be in this is just my opinion Steve and my comment and I I don't think anything's going to happen I bet I bet I bet in muscle long war size three shoes and our law enforcement will be ready and willing and I believe in our law enforcement and more ready ready down here and in Richmond and and and and capital died in it will just be another in Salt to our governor that's my opinion he turned and in the lives of gender that will gun control and all that and I honestly believe that our law enforcement is really ready working with the federal government and I think that the I'm just saying that I salute all of them you know they got to go out and well this you know and and and quite frankly I think our governor in our General Assembly is going to realize but they're wrong and that's just my opinion comment and I have a good morning yep everybody's gonna just give something back no they're they're not taken anything for granted in Richmond because over the weekend they tell us police I have been scouring the internet look at various chat rooms and dark web then looking for any clues about possible plans for made him workers have been putting up chain link holding pens around of the capitol square and one lawmaker even plans to hide in a safe house it what's expected to be an unprecedented show of force that's the word to use in by my gun rights activists what is provoking the anger well it's what was a once reliably conservative state Virginia with their now Democrat majority and their plans to an actor a literal slew of gun restrictions no it's the Virginia citizens defense legal rally which is an annual event they they hold a yearly rally on the capitol on a normal year you get a few hundred gun enthusiasts that would show up this year however thousands are expected to turn out second amendment groups have identified the state of Virginia this is our rallying point for the fight against what we see is our national erosion of gun rights that's the key right there with people coming in from in many cases far far away some say there's gonna be protesters from every state in the country let's see one that such protester Timothy Forrester says we're not going to be quiet anymore we're going to fight them in the courts and on the ground the illegal laws they're proposing heard just straight up on constitutional this guy is a Virginia NRA member who had a hand gun strapped to his children another tucked in his waistband as he stood outside of the legislative office building last week now they're saying they've heard from groups around the country the plan to send members to Virginia including the Nevada based oath keepers which is promised to organize and train armed policies in Malaysia extremist groups have blanket in social media and online forums with some cases very ominous message last week of course we had the three men that were arrested a part of a white supremacist group that were planning to attend the rally in Richmond I I thought over the weekend that there were several others I believe like was it for more members of that so called group called the base they had actually been arrested so who knows the governor says they've got credible threats of violence like weaponized drones being deployed over the capitol square which I guess prompted the FAA did issue their temporary flight restrictions including for drones over the capital airspace the Virginia state police Virginia capitol police were Richmond police all working together hand in hand they have plans for a huge police presence at today's rally including uniformed and plainclothes officers looking to blame them police plan to limit access to the capital square to only one entrance and they have warned rally attendees you may have to wait hours to get past the security screening so that that's the site I wondered how they were going to break this down they said they were going to have a perimeter set up there no guns are gonna be allowed through that screened area so I guess they've got fences in place all the way around but just one entrance yeah that sounds like that sounds like trouble coming together as well how's that going to work out you've got pro gun supporters in the the likes of those that hate the pro gunners they're all kind of converging on one entrance to try to get through the security it makes no sense to me but around about the five before the L. we get a quick time out plenty of room for you on a Monday it's eight eight eight eight six zero eighty
