WE'RE IN A CONSTANT GROUPING ANDI CAN SAY THIS, WE HAVE A LARGE GROUPING OF PEOPLE THAT DOES NOTHING BUT COMMUNICATE WITH THEVARIOUS OFFICIALS, INCLUDING WE'VE BEEN SPENDING A LOT OF TIME WITH NEW YORK OFFICIALS BECAUSE THAT REALLY IS BY FAR THE HOTTEST SPOT. I'VE GOT A NUMBER OF VERY TOUGH -- -- THEY'VE GOT A VERY -- THEY'VE GOT A NUMBER OF VERY TOUGH WEEKS AHEAD OF THEM.THE GOVERNOR IS DOING A GOOD JOB.I SPOKE TO GOVERNOR CUOMO LAST NIGHT AND THIS MORNING. AND HE MENTIONED THAT, IN HIS REMARKS, THAT HE'S USING THE -- THAT WE ARE USING -- I THINK HE FEELS, BECAUSE HE UNDERSTANDS NEGOTIATION, HE THINKS WE'RE USING VERY APPROPRIATELY THE DEFENSE PRODUCTION ACT AND WE ARE.WE'RE USING IT WHERE NEEDED.IT'S A GREAT POINT OF LEVERAGE. IT'S A GREAT NEGOTIATING TOOL.BUT I'VE REALLY -- I WILL TELL YOU THIS, TREMENDOUS SPIRIT FROMPEOPLE AND TREMENDOUS SPIRIT WITH RESPECT TO THESE COMPANIES.AND I DON'T HAVE TO USE IT VERY MUCH AT ALL.THEY WANT TO DO IT, AS YOU KNOW,GENERAL MOTORS IS INVOLVED.

BUT WE NOW ARE DOING MORE TESTING THAN ANYBODY BY FAR.WE DO MORE IN EIGHT DAYS THAN THEY DO IN EIGHT WEEKS. WE GO UP ON A DAILY BASIS EXPONENTIALLY.SO IT'S REALLY GOOD.BY THE WAY, WHILE I'M HONORED, -- ON IT, I ALSO SPOKE WITH THE PRIME MINISTER OF JAPAN LAST NIGHT AND CONGRATULATED HIM ON AWISE CHOICE.I THINK IT'S GOING TO BE A FANTASTIC OLYMPICS. 2021. I THINK IT'S GOING TO BE A FANTASTIC OLYMPICS. IT WAS THE ABSOLUTE RIGHT DECISION TO DELAY IT. FOR A FULL YEAR.AND NOW HAVE A FULL BEAUTIFUL OLYMPICS. IT'S GOING TO BE VERY IMPORTANT BECAUSE IT'S PROBABLY THE FIRST TIME MAYBE EVER OR CERTAINLY IN A LONG TIME THAT IT WAS ON AN ODD YEAR. IT'S ALWAYS ON AN EVEN YEAR, THEY TELL ME. BUT HE'S GOING TO HAVE A FANTASTIC SUCCESS AND NOW THEY'LL HAVE EVEN MORE TIME.HE DIDN'T NEED ANY MORE TIME. EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT WILL I WILL READY. WHAT A JOB THEY'VE DONE.BUT I WANT TO CONGRATULATE JAPAN, THE I.O.C. AND PRIME MINISTER ABE ON A GREAT DECISION. I THINK IT'S GOING TO BE A FANTASTIC OLYMPICS. I TOLD HIM, I'LL BE THERE.I'LL BE THERE.ED A WE FIGHT TO PROTECT -- AS WE FIGHT TO PROTECT AMERICAN LIVES, WE'RE ALSO PROTECTING AMERICAN LIVELIHOODS.

WE WANT TO GET EVERYBODY BACK WORKING.TOGETHER THIS $2.2 TRILLION LEGISLATIVE PACKAGE IS BIGGER THAN ANYTHING I BELIEVE EVER PASSED IN CONGRESS PERHAPS RELATIVELY SPEAKING IF YOU LOOK DURING THE NEW DEAL DAYS, IT TIME VALIDITY, BUT THISIS FAR AND AWAY THE BIGGEST EVERDONE AND THAT'S A TREMENDOUS THING BECAUSE A LOT OF THIS MONEY GOES TO JOBS, JOBS, JOBS, AND FAMILIES, FAMILIES, FAMILIES. THE SENATE BILL INCLUDES $350 BILLION IN JOB RETENTION LOANS FOR SMALL BUSINESSES WITH LOAN FORGIVENESS FOR BUSINESSES THAT CONTINUE PAYING THEIR WORKERS.WE WANT THEM TO KEEP THEIR WORKERS AND PAY THEIR WORKERS.THIS WILL HELP KEEP WORKERS IN THE PAYROLL AND ALLOW ACCELERATEAS SOON AS WE DEFEAT THE VIRUS. $300 BILLION INDIRECT PAYMENTS FOR AMERICAN CITIZENS EARNING $99,000.$3,000 400 FOR A TYPICAL FAMILY OF FOR.

WE HAVE 150 COUNTRIES, OVER 150 COUNTRIES THAT HAVE THIS VIRUS AND NOBODY WILL BELIEVE A THING LIKE THAT IS POSSIBLE.NOBODY COULD HAVE SEEN SOMETHINGLIKE THIS COMING. WE KNOW IT COULD HAPPEN AGAIN.AND IF IT DOES, SOMEBODY IS GOING TO BE WELL PREPARED BECAUSE OF WHAT WE LEARNED. HOW INCREDIBLE WHAT WE HAVE DONE. THERE ARE MORE TESTS BY ANYBODY BY FAR.

SECRETARY MNUCHIN: I WOULD LIKE TO THANK MITCH MCCONNELL FOR HISLEADERSHIP AND I WOULD LIKE TO THANK CHUCK SCHUMER FOR THE ENORMOUS BIPARTISAN SUPPORT WE HAD ON THIS BILL AND THE DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS WHO WORKED TIRELESSLY.THE PRESIDENT SAID, I GOT TO LIVE IN THE L.B.J. ROOM THE LASTFIVE DAYS AND COULDN'T BE MORE PLEASED WITH THE UNPRECEDENTED RESPONSE FROM THE SENATE TO PROTECT AMERICAN WORKERS AND AMERICAN BUSINESS IN THIS SITUATION.THE PRESIDENT HAS OUTLINED MANY OF THESE BUT LET ME GO THROUGH THESE QUICKLY.SMALL BUSINESS RETENTION LOANS, THIS WILL COVER ROUGHLY 50% OF THE PRIVATE PAYROLL IN SMALL BUSINESSES WHERE WE WILL IMMEDIATELY MAKE LOANS THAT WILLSUPPLY EIGHT WEEKS OF SALARIES AS LONG AS THEY KEEP WORKERS EMPLOYED AND OVERHEAD.AND THOSE LOANS WILL BE FORGIVENAT THE END OF THE PERIOD AS LONGAS THEY KEEP WORKERS EMPLOYED.THESE ARE S.B.A. LOANS BUT THE TREASURY WILL AUTHORIZE EVERY SINGLE FDIC INSURED BANK TO MAKETHESE.I EXPECT BY THE END OF NEXT WEEK, WE WILL HAVE A SIMPLE PROCESS WHERE THESE CAN BE MADE AND DISBURSED IN THE SAME DAY.THIS WILL BE A VERY SIMPLE SYSTEM TO GET MONEY INTO SMALL BUSINESS HANDS. FOR COMPANIES THAT DON'T QUALIFYTHAT, WE HAVE AN ECONOMIC PROGRAM OF TAX INCENTIVES TO RETAIN WORKERS AND AS THE PRESIDENT SAID, WE HAVE ENHANCEDUNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE FOR PEOPLE WHO DON'T FIT INTO THESE TWO PROGRAMS THAT WILL BE ADMINISTERED THROUGH THE STATES.WE WILL HAVE ECONOMIC IMPACT PAYMENTS.

AND AGAIN, THANK EVERYBODY FOR THIS BIPARTISAN WORK. THIS IS GOING TO BE ENORMOUS HELP FOR THE AMERICAN WORKERS AND THE AMERICAN ECONOMY. THE PRESIDENT WAS DETERMINED THAT CONGRESS WOULD MOVE SWIFTLYTO PROTECT AMERICANS IN THIS UNPRECEDENTED SITUATION.PRESIDENT TRUMP: DAY AND NIGHT. A LOT OF WORK AND SEE HOW IT ALLGOES AND WE NEED THE VOTES. DO YOU HAVE A QUESTION? REPORTER: HOW DO YOU THINK THIS BILL WILL KEEP THE ECONOMY AFLOAT? PRESIDENT TRUMP: WE ARE GOING TOTAKE CARE OF THE AMERICAN WORKERS AND MAKE THE COUNTRY GREAT.IT'S NOT THEIR FAULT. NOT THEIR FAULT.BUT WE THINK -- REPORTER: DO YOU ANTICIPATE IT IN THREE MONTHS AND WON'T NEED THIS FOR THREE MONTHS.THIS WAR WILL BE WON QUICKER. SECRETARY MNUCHIN: THIS IS A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF MONEY, IF NEEDED, TO RECOVER THE ECONOMY. PRESIDENT TRUMP: THIS IS TO KEEPECONOMIES.AAA-RATED COMPANIES TO KEEP THEMGOING AND GOING TO BE IN THE FORM OF LOANS.SO THE MONEY IS COMING BACK.REPORTER: LET ME ASK YOU SOMETHING, YOU SAID WE SHOULDN'TRELY ON A FOREIGN COMPANY FOR THE MEANS OF OUR OWN SURVIVAL, WHAT DO YOU MEAN? PRESIDENT TRUMP: WE RELY ON COUNTRIES WE GIVE UP OUR SUPPLY CHAINS AND GIVE UP OUR PRODUCTION FACILITIES AND BUY ITSOMEPLACE ELSE FOR A LOWER PRICEBUT WE LOSE JOBS AND EVERYTHING AND LOSE OUR INDEPENDENCE AND CAN'T LET THAT HAPPEN.WE WILL BE MAKING SOME CHANGES. WE HAVE BEEN MAKING THOSE CHANGES.REPORTER: DO YOU HAVE A BAN TO EXPORT THE MEDICAL EQUIPMENT? PRESIDENT TRUMP: IT IS HAPPENINGBY ITSELF.SOME PEOPLE, WE MAKE THE BEST MEDICAL EQUIPMENT IN THE WORLD AND YOU HAVE SOME PEOPLE LIKE THE EUROPEAN UNION, THEY DON'T TAKE IT BECAUSE THEY HAVE SPECIFICATIONS THAT DON'T ALLOW OUR EQUIPMENT IN BECAUSE IT'S DESIGNED IN A DIFFERENT WAY, EVEN THOUGH IT'S A BETTER WAY.THEY ARE ALL PLAYING GAMES AGAINST US. THEY HAVE BEEN PLAYING GAMES AGAINST US AND NO PRESIDENT HAS EVER DONE ANYTHING ABOUT IT.BUT THE EUROPEAN UNION, YOU LOOKAT THE MEDICAL EQUIPMENT, WE MAKE THE BEST BUT WE CAN'T SELL IT BECAUSE WE ARE NOT APPROPRIATELY.AND WE TAKE THEIR MEDICAL EQUIPMENT IN OUR COUNTRY. WE ARE CHANGING THINGS. ALL OF THIS IS CHANGING.BUT THEY HAVE SPECIFICATIONS SO THAT OUR EQUIPMENT DESIGNED SPECIFICALLY SO OUR EQUIPMENT CAN'T COME INTO THEIR COUNTRIES.IT'S A VERY TERRIBLE THING THAT HAS HAPPENED. SOME OF THE PEOPLE THAT TOOK THEBIGGEST ADVANTAGE OF US ARE OUR ALLIES. THEY TOOK ADVANTAGE OF US IN MANY WAYS, FINANCIALLY AND MILITARILY. WHEN YOU LOOK AT -- LOOK, I GOT -- IF YOU LOOK AT NATO, THE ABUSE THAT WAS GIVEN TO OUR COUNTRY ON NATO WHERE THEY WOULDN'T PAY. AND WE WERE PAYING FOR EVERYBODY.NOW, BECAUSE OF ME, THEY ARE PAYING A LOT. NOW THEY PAID $125 MILLION MORE AND THEN ULTIMATELY SECRETARY GENERAL WHO I THINK WOULD SAY ISMY BIGGEST FAN WE GOT THEM TO PAY AN ADDITIONAL $400 BILLION. AND THEN THERE'S THE TRADE. THEY MAKE IT ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE FOR US TO HAVE A FAIR DEAL. THEY KNOW THIS. WE ARE JUST WAITING.WE HAVE ALL THE ADVANTAGES. IT'S GOING TO BE EASY WHEN I DECIDE TO DO IT.BUT WE HAVE BEEN TREATED UNFAIRLY BY THE EUROPEAN UNION. REPORTER: MR. PRESIDENT, FOUR REPUBLICAN SENATORS HAVE INDICATED THAT WILL EXTRA $600 FOR UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE MAY ENCOURAGE EMPLOYEES TO LOSE THEIR JOBS. WHAT DO YOU THINK?PRESIDENT TRUMP: I KNOW THE ISSUE VERY WELL.STEVE, MAYBE YOU CAN DISCUSS THAT. SECRETARY MNUCHIN: LET ME JUST EXPLAIN THE ISSUE, WHICH IS WE WANT TO HAVE ENHANCED UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE. MOST OF THESE STATE SYSTEMS HAVETECHNOLOGY THAT IS 30 YEARS OLD OR OLDER. IF WE HAD THE ABILITY TO CUSTOMIZE THIS WITH MUCH MORE SPECIFICS, WE WOULD HAVE. THIS WAS THE ONLY WAY THAT STATES COULD GET MONEY OUT QUICKLY IN A FAIRWAY AND USED $600 ACROSS THE BOARD.MOST AMERICANS, WHAT THEY WANT, THEY WANT TO KEEP THEIR JOBS. FOR 50% OF THESE BUSINESSES, THEY WILL HAVE THE BUSINESSES KEEP THOSE JOBS.SO THIS WAS -- OUR NUMBER ONE ISSUE IS HOW DO WE MAKE SURE THAT AMERICAN WORKERS WHO NEEDEDTO KEEP GETTING PAID, THIS IS NOFAULT OF THEIR OWN, THAT BUSINESSES HAVE BEEN SHUT DOWN, THE PRESIDENT AND VICE PRESIDENTWANTED TO MAKE SURE THE HARDWORKING AMERICANS GOT MONEY AND THIS WAS THE MOST EFFICIENT WAY.>> ARE THEY IN AGREEMENT NOW? SECRETARY MNUCHIN: I WOULD SAY OUR EXPECTATION THIS BILL PASSESTONIGHT AND GETS TO THE HOUSE TOMORROW AND PASS IT. WE NEED TO GET THIS MONEY INTO THE AMERICAN ECONOMY AND AMERICAN WORKERS. THAT'S THE IMPORTANCE OF THIS.PRESIDENT TRUMP: PEOPLE WOULD ACTUALLY GET MORE MONEY BUT DON'T WANT TO GET A DISINCENTIVE. GOOD QUESTION, ACTUALLY.REPORTER: FAMILY OF RETIRED F.B.I. AGENTS ROBERT LEFFEN SON THAT U.S. FIRST THAT HE DIED IN IRANIAN CUSTODY, ARE YOU AWARE OF THAT?PRESIDENT TRUMP: I HAVE BEEN VERY MUCH INVOLVED IN THAT AND HE WAS A GREAT GENTLEMAN AND GREAT FAMILY. I HAVE TO SAY THIS AND THEY HAVEBEEN MAKING THE STATEMENT TO THEFAMILY I BELIEVE, BUT IT'S NOT LOOKING GOOD. HE WASN'T WELL FOR YEARS IN IRAN. IT'S NOT LOOKING PROMISING. WE HAVE GOTTEN SO MANY PEOPLE BACK. WE GOT TWO PEOPLE BACK THIS WEEK. BUT ROBERT LEFFENSON, HE HAS BEEN SICK FOR A LONG TIME AND ROUGH PROBLEMS PRIOR TO HIS DETAINMENT OR CAPTURE.AND WE FEEL TERRIBLY FOR THE FAMILY. I DON'T ACCEPT IT THAT HE'S DEAD. IT'S NOT LOOKING GREAT. BUT I WON'T ACCEPT THAT HE'S DEAD. BUT A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE THINKINGTHAT IS THE CASE. REPORTER: WHEN YOU TWEETED EARLIER LINKING THE CLOSING THE COUNTRY TO YOUR ELECTION. IS THIS EASTER TIME LINE RELATEDTO YOUR POLITICAL INTERESTS.YOU SAID THE MEDIA WANT TO REMAIN CLOSED -- [INDISCERNIBLE] PRESIDENT TRUMP: THE MEDIA WOULDLIKE TO SEE ME POORLY.REPORTER: REOPENING THE COUNTRY IS NOT A GOOD IDEA. PRESIDENT TRUMP: JUST SO YOU UNDERSTAND. SOLE PEOPLE WOULD LIKE IT NOT TOOPEN SO QUICKLY AND SOME PEOPLE WOULD LIKE IT TO DO FINANCIALLY POORLY BECAUSE THAT WOULD BE GOOD AT DEFEATING ME AT THE POLLS.AND I DON'T KNOW IF THAT'S SOME BUT THERE ARE PEOPLE IN YOUR PROFESSION THAT WOULD LIKE THAT TO HAPPEN.I THINK IT'S VERY CLEAR THAT THERE ARE PEOPLE IN YOUR PROFESSION THAT WRITE FAKE NEWS.YOU DO. SHE DOES. THERE ARE PEOPLE IN YOUR PROFESSION THAT WRITE FAKE NEWS.THEY WOULD LOVE TO SEE ME FOR WHATEVER REASON NOBODY HAS DONE THE JOB WE HAVE DONE AND LUCKY THAT YOU HAVE THIS GROUP NOW RIGHT HERE OR YOU WOULDN'T HAVE A COUNTRY LEFT. OK. REPORTER: ONCE YOU SIGN THIS PACKAGE, HOW CAN YOU -- >> WHO ARE YOU WITH?TRUM CBS. [INDISCERNIBLE] >> WITHIN THREE WEEKS, WE WILL HAVE DIRECT PAYMENTS OUT WHERE WE HAVE DEPOSIT TOWER INFORMATION AND LOOKING TO GET ALOT MORE INFORMATION THAN WE HAVE PROCEDURES TO DO THAT. THREE WEEKS FOR THAT AND END OF NEXT WEEK WE WANT ALL THE BANKS TO ORIGINATE LOANS SAME DAY.REPORTER: I HAVE TWO QUESTIONS FOR YOU -- [SPEAKING WITH THE G-20 AND BAN ON WILD ANIMAL MARKETS TOLL PREVENT COVID-19 THAT WAS TRANSFERRED TOM HUMANS. PRESIDENT TRUMP: I DON'T KNOW IFTHAT SUBJECT IS GOING TO COME UP. IT CAME OUT OF CHINA AND SAY THAT'S HOW IT HAPPENED IN CHINA.IT'S SOMETHING WE WILL TALK ABOUT.BUT IT'S NOT THE TOP OF MY LIST.[INDISCERNIBLE] PRESIDENT TRUMP: HOW MANY DEATHSARE ACCEPTABLE TO ME? NONE. NONE. IF THAT'S YOUR QUESTION.LOOK I SAW HIS STATEMENT. WE HAVE TESTED BY FAR MORE THAN ANYBODY.WE ARE TESTING MORE THAN ANYBODYRIGHT NOW.THERE'S NOBODY EVEN CLOSE.AND OUR TESTS ARE THE BEST TESTSAND MOST ACCURATE TESTS.IF YOU ARE SAYING WE ARE GOING TO TEST 350 MILLION PEOPLE. I WATCHED THE STATEMENT.I DISAGREE WITH IT. I CAN GO TO CERTAIN STATEMENTS BUT I'M NOT GOING TO DO THAT BUTCERTAIN STATEMENTS. WE DON'T HAVE TO TEST THE ENTIRESTATE IN THE MIDWEST. I THINK IT'S RIDICULOUS.WE DON'T HAVE TO DO IT. A LOT OF THOSE STATES COULD GO RIGHT NOW.BECAUSE AT SOME POINT IN THE NOTTOO DISTANT FUTURE, MAYBE NEW YORK AND CALIFORNIA CAN'T.MAYBE THE STATE OF WASHINGTON CAN'T.BUT IF YOU LOOK AT THEM, THEIR BIGGEST PROBLEM WAS IN ONE NURSING HOME. REPORTER: IF YOU TEST ONE STATE AND THE PERSON MOVES OVER TO THEOTHER STATE.PRESIDENT TRUMP: JUST LOOK AT THAT. IF YOU LOOK AT THE STATES AND MANY STATES I'M TALKING ABOUT, THEY DON'T HAVE A PROBLEM.WE HAVE SOME BIG PROBLEMS BUT CONFINED TO CERTAIN HIGH DENSITYAREAS.WHY WOULD WE TEST THE ENTIRE NATION 350 MILLION PEOPLE.WE TESTED FAR MORE THAN ANYBODY ELSE. WE HAVE THE ABILITY TO TEST, WE HAVE COME A LONG WAY FROM A BROKEN SYSTEM I INHERITED.WE HAVE TESTED FAR MORE THAN ANYBODY ELSE. WHEN I SAY ANYBODY ELSE, OTHER COUNTRIES.NO COUNTRY IS EVEN CLOSE. THEY CAME OUT WITH A STATISTIC IGUESS YESTERDAY THAT I HEARD FROM DR. BIRX WHERE IT'S FOR EIGHT DAYS HERE MORE THAN EIGHT WEEKS IN SOUTH KOREA AND SOUTH KOREA HAS DONE A GREAT JOB. BUT WE DID IN EIGHT DAYS WHAT SOUTH KOREA DID IN EIGHT WEEKS. THAT'S A BIG NUMBER.AND I SAID WE ARE GETTING BETTER. EVERY DAY IS GOING UP.WE HAVE AN INCREDIBLE APPARATUS.I DON'T WANT TO TEST 350 MILLIONPEOPLE. I THINK IT'S RIDICULOUS.>> TWO QUESTIONS. [INDISCERNIBLE] PRESIDENT TRUMP: WITH RESPECT TOWHAT? [INDISCERNIBLE QUESTION]PRESIDENT TRUMP: WE HAVE STRONG BORDERS.[INDISCERNIBLE] PRESIDENT TRUMP: PEOPLE COULD COME IN AND HAD A WHOLE DIFFERENT DEAL AND UP TO 164 MILES, THINK OF THAT. 164 MILES OF WALL BIG, BEAUTIFULWALL. AND IN THOSE AREAS IT'S VERY, VERY TOUGH TO COME IN.WE HAVE BEEN VERY TOUGH ON THE BORDERS.I MEAN WHERE WE HAVE THE WORLD BUILT, NOBODY IS GETTING THROUGH.THEY ARE GOING AROUND, BUT THAT'S A LONG TRIP. THAT'S THE WAY THEY GET THROUGH.BUT I'M VERY STRONG ON BORDERS AND DON'T WANT PEOPLE COMING IN HERE. IF THEY ARE GOING TO COME IN, THEY HAVE TO COME IN THROUGH LEGALLY AND MERIT.WE ARE NOT HAVING THE PEOPLE YOUARE TALKING ABOUT COMING TO OUR COUNTRY.REPORTER: REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATS TO PASS THE STIMULUS AND THE KENNEDY ARTS CENTER HEREIN WASHINGTON, D.C.,. SHOULDN'T THAT MONEY BE GOING TOMASKS AND REPORTORS?PRESIDENT TRUMP: IT WAS 35 MILLION AND TOOK OFF 10.I'M A FAN OF THAT.I WOULD LOVE TO GO THERE EVENINGS BUT I'M TOO BUSY DOING THINGS BECAUSE THAT'S MORE IMPORTANT.BUT THE CONTENDY CENTER HAS SUFFERED GREATLY BECAUSE NOBODY CAN GO THERE. IT IS CLOSED AND DO NEED SOME FUNDING AND I SAID THAT WAS A DEMOCRAT REQUEST, NOT MY REQUEST.BUT YOU HAVE TO GIVE THEM SOMETHING.IT WORKS THAT WAY.DEMOCRATSVILLE TREATED US FAIRLY.

DAVID DOES AN INCREDIBLE JOB ANDPUTS UP A LOT OF MONEY AND DOES THINGS THAT A LOT OF PEOPLE WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO DO OR DO. THEY HAVE CLOSED. THEY HAVE TREMENDOUS DEFICITS.I DIDN'T HAVE A BIG PROBLEM.THIS WAS A REQUEST FROM THE DEMOCRATS BECAUSE THEY HAVE A FACILITY THAT IS ESSENTIALLY CLOSED UP.IF I WANTED TO GO THERE TO LOOK AT "ROMEO AND YOU'LL YET," I WOULD LOVE TO LOOK AT IT. REPORTER: SENATOR RUBIO SAID THEWORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION SHOWS FAVORISM TO CHINA AND REPRESENTATIVE MCCAUL ON THE HOUSE FOREIGN RELATIONS COMMITTEE QUESTIONED THE INTEGRITY OF THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION DIRECTOR AND SAID THERE WERE SEVERAL RED FLAGS WITH RESPECT TO HIS RELATIONSHIPWITH CHINA. DO YOU THINK THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION SHOWED FAVORITISM. DO YOU THINK THE UNITED STATES SHOULD RE-EXPLORE ITS RELATIONSHIP WITH THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION?PRESIDENT TRUMP: THERE IS TALK THAT HAS BEEN VERY UNFAIR.A LOT OF PEOPLE FEEL IT HAS BEENVERY UNFAIR AND ONE-SIDED WITH CHINA AND A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE NOT HAPPY WITH THAT.DRP FAUCI AND MYSELF AND OTHER PEOPLE, THERE ARE PEOPLE THAT WELIKE AND KNOW.I THINK THERE ARE FRIENDS, A LOTOF GOOD PROFESSIONALS.IT WOULD BE INTERESTING IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO TALK ABOUT THE W.H.O.BUT I HAVE HEARD FOR YEARS THAT THAT IS VERY MUCH BIASED TOWARD CHINA.I DON'T KNOW.

AND IF WE DIDN'T DO THAT, THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE WOULD HAVE DIED THAT ARE NOW LIVING AND HAPPY. IF I DIDN'T DO THAT EARLY, NOBODY WANTED THAT TO HAPPEN. EVERYBODY THOUGHT IT WAS JUST UNNECESSARY TO DO IT. AND IF WE DIDN'T DO IT, THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE WOULD HAVE DIED MORE THANWHAT'S HAPPENED.MAYBE ONE MORE.

SECRETARY PERDUE WILL BE HERE TOTALK ABOUT THE FOOD LUNCH PROGRAM AND FREE AND REDUCED LUNCHES.THE PRESIDENT AND I SPOKE TO 150C.E.O.'S OF TOP NONPROFIT ORGANIZATIONS.WE THANK THEM FOR THEIR ONGOING WORK SUPPLYING THE NEEDS OF PEOPLE NOT ONLY IMPACTED BY THE CORONAVIRUS BUT THE MOST VULNERABLE AMONG US IN OUR COMMUNITIES, LIKE RED CROSS, THESALVATION ARMY, FEEDING AMERICA ARE STILL WORKING EVERY DAY.AND WE PROMISE AND URGE EVERY AMERICAN IF YOU HAVE THE MEANS AND HAVE THE ABILITY, CONTINUE TO BEER GENEROUS TO NONPROFIT ORGANIZATIONS THAT ARE HELPING THOSE MOST IN NEED IN YOUR COMMUNITY.THE PRESIDENT MARCH SHALED A WHOLE OF GOVERNMENT AAPPROACH AND THE PRESIDENT AND I I WERE IN CONTACT WITH GOVERNORS TODAY.>> WORK ON CAPACITY AND I WANT PEOPLE TO KNOW ON STATES THAT ARE MOST IMPACTED BY THE CORONAVIRUS THAT WE ARE WITH YOUAND GOING TO STAY WITH YOU AND CONTINUE TO WORK AROUND THE CLOCK TO MAKE SURE YOUR COURAGEOUS HEALTH CARE WORKERS, HEALTH SYSTEMS AND STATE GOVERNMENTS HAVE THE RESOURCES TO SUPPORT YOUR RESPONSE. ON THE SUBJECT OF TESTING, DR. BIRX WILL REFLECT ON WHAT THE DATA IS SHOWING IN JUST A MOMENTAND NOT INCLUDING LOCAL LABS ANDHOSPITALS.WE ARE AT 432,000 TESTS COME COMPLETED AND WE ARE PLEASED TO SEE THERE ARE LITERALLY DRIVE-THROUGH AND COMMUNITY SITES AROUND THE COUNTRY AND ASSISTING STATES IN STANDING THOSE UP EACH AND EVERY DAY.WE REMIND THE HOSPITALS AND LABSAROUND THE COUNTRY AND THE MOMENT THE PRESIDENT SIGNS THE BILL THAT IT IS ESSENTIAL THAT THEY PROVIDE THE RESULTS OF THE TESTS TO US AND GIVES US VISIBILITY OF WHAT IS HAPPENING ON THE GROUND.PRESIDENT TRUMP INITIATED WITH THESE LABS ACROSS THE COUNTRY WEARE ADDING TENS OF THOUSANDS OF TESTS EVERY SINGLE DAY. ON THE SUBJECT OF SUPPLIES, BEFORE THE END OF THE WEEK, WE WILL TALK ABOUT A BIT MORE ABOUTTHE SUPPLY CHAIN. I WAS AT FEMA LAST NIGHT AND LITERALLY SAW A ROOMFUL OF PEOPLE WITH LAP TOPS AND CELL PHONES AND LEAVING NO STONE UNTURNED AS I TOLD GOVERNORS TO FIND MEDICAL SUPPLIES WHETHER ITBE MASKS OR GOWNS OR GLOVES OR VEAPTS AND THE TEAM IS WORKING AROUND THE CLOCK TO MEET THOSE NEEDS.A FEW SMALLER ITEMS.FIRST AND FOREMOST, THE C.D.C. IS DEVELOPING GUIDANCE WHICH WE WILL BE PUBLISHING TOMORROW ABOUT THE BEST WAY TO UTILIZE OUR NATURAL RESOURCES AT OUR PARKS.IT WAS SEVERAL WEEKS AGO THAT OUR PARK SERVICE WAIVED ALL ENTRANCE FEES AND WE DIRECTED THE C.D.C. TO PRODUCE GUIDANCE TO PRACTICE SOCIAL DISTANCING AND BE OUT OF DOORS AND ENJOY OUR NATIONAL PARKS AND WE WILL BE SHARING THAT WITH THE VAST STATE PARK SYSTEMS ACROSS THE COUNTY AND ENCOURAGING THEIR SUPPORT.LET ME LAST SAY AGAIN, THERE IS NOTHING MORE IMPORTANT FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE TO DO TO SLOW THE SPREAD THAN TO HEAD YOUR STATE AND LOCAL GUIDANCE AND AREAS IMPACTED BY THE CORONAVIRUS AND FOR EVERYONE ELLINGS TO PUT INTO PRACTICE THE15 DAYS TO SLOW THE SPREAD. DR. FAUCI WILL REFLECT ON THE IMPACT THAT WE BELIEVE IT IS HAVING AROUND THE COUNTRY.BUT THE PEOPLE ASKED ME FROM TIME TO TIME WHAT CAN I DO. AND I SAY FROM MY HEART TO EVERYAMERICAN. THIS IS WHAT YOU CAN DO, NOT JUST TO PROTECT YOUR OWN HEALTH AND YOUR FAMILY, BUT NO AMERICANWAS TO INADVERTENTLY SPREAD THE CORONAVIRUS PARTICULARLY TO THOSE WHO MAY BE VULNERABLE.THE RISK OF SERIOUS ILLNESS TO THE AVERAGE AMERICAN REMAINS LOW.THE MAJORITY OF AMERICANS WILL HAVE MILD SYMPTOMS AND WILL RECOVER.BUT FOR SENIORS WITH SERIOUS UNDERLYING CONDITIONS, EVERYONE NEEDS TO PRACTICE THE PRINCIPLESOF 15 DAYS TO SLOW THE SPREAD.THE PRESIDENT ANNOUNCED THIS WEEK THAT WE ARE LOOKING FORWARDTO THE DAY WE CAN OPEN UP THE COUNTRY AND THIS TEAM WILL BE BRINGING HIM RECOMMENDATIONS ABOUT HOW TO SAFELY AND RESPONSIBLY DO JUST THAT. BUT FOR EVERY AMERICAN WHO WANTSTO SEE AMERICA BACK IN BUSINESS,YOU CAN PUT IN PRACTICE.GO TO CORONAVIRUS.GOV AND WE WILL DO WHAT WE CAN DO. WE WILL SLOW THE SPREAD AND HEALOUR LAND. WITH THAT, LET ME RECOGNIZE DR. TONY FAUCI -- DR. BIRX FIRST ANDTHEN DR. FAUCI. DR. BIRX: THANK YOU FOR US TALKING TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. WE HAVE BEEN WATCHING THE TESTING RESULTS AND IT IS CRITICAL TO LOOK AT THAT VERY.LET ME TELL YOU.OUR SYSTEM TO LOOK AT FLU-LIKE ILLNESSES IS STILL UP IN RUNNING.AND WHY IS THAT IMPORTANT?FOR THOSE OF YOU BEEN FOLLOWING THE FLU EPIDEMIC, WE HAD FLU A AND THEN FLU B AND THOSE SYMPTOMS IS THE PLATFORM WHERE WE CAN SEE WHERE THERE IS INCREASE. IF YOU HAVE VERY FEW CASES IN YOUR STATE AND COUNTIES, MAINTAIN YOUR FLU SURVEILLANCE AND WORK CLOSELY WITH THE C.D.C.AND LOOK FOR CHANGES IN YOUR SLOPE OF NEW FLU-LIKE ILLNESSES AND THERE ARE NEW TEST KITS AND THERE ARE ENOUGH TEST KITS THAT RUNS ON YOUR FLU SURVEILPENS PROGRAM.THEY CAN PARTICIPATE IN THE SURVEILLANCE THAT WE NEED TO HAVE OUT THERE NOW. NEW YORK CITY, WESTCHESTER, NEW YORK, SUFFOLK AND NASSAU COUNTY.THOSE ARE THE FOUR COUNTIES ASSOCIATED WITH NEW YORK AND NEWYORK METRO AREA.THERE ARE A FEW COUNTIES IN NEW JERSEY BUT 56% OF THE CASES ARE AND IT'S VERY IMPORTANT THAT PEOPLE LOOK AT THE NUMBER OF NEWCASES PER DAY.REMEMBER WE TOLD YOU IT WILL TAKE A WHILE TO WORK THROUGH THETESTING BACKLOG.I THINK WE ARE CLOSE SO YOU CAN INTERPRET THE NUMBER OF CASES PER DAY AND YOU WILL SEE IN NEW YORK CITY THAT THE NUMBER OF CASES PER DAY HAS BEEN RELATIVELY CONSTANT OVER THE LAST THREE DAYS.THOSE ARE THE NUMBER OF NEW CASES PER DAY.THIS IS A REAL CALL TO EVERY PERSON IN NEW YORK CITY AND NEW YORK METRO AREA TO CONTINUE EVERY ONE OF THESE 15 DAYS TO SLOW THE SPREAD AND TO DO THAT PART OF THAT AT THE SAME TIME THEY ARE FOLLOWING THE MAYORS AND GOVERNORS.YESTERDAY, WE TALKED ABOUT PEOPLE THAT MAY HAVE LEFT THE METRO AREA THAT WERE RESIDENTS THAT MAY HAVE GONE TO SECONDARY HOMES OR OTHER PLACES TO RESIDE AND WE ASKED THEM TO MONITOR THEIR TEMPERATURES AND SELF-ISOLATE THEMSELVES JUST TO ENSURE THEIR OWN HEALTH AND THE HEALTH OF THEIR COMMUNITIES WHILE PEOPLE MOVE AROUND THE COUNTRY.WHY THIS IS SO IMPORTANT, IT'S VERY IMPORTANT TO ME PERSONALLY,BECAUSE MY GRANDMOTHER FOR 88 YEARS LIVED WITH THE FACT THAT SHE WAS THE ONE AT AGE 11 WHO BROUGHT HOME FLU TO HER MOTHER WHEN HER MOTHER HAD JUST DELIVERED AND HER MOTHER SUCCUMBED TO THE GREAT 1918 FLU.SHE NORTHWESTERLY FORGOT THAT SHE WAS A CHILD IN SCHOOL THAT INNOCENTLY BROUGHT THAT FLU HOME. THIS IS WHY WE KEEP SAYING TO EVERY AMERICAN, YOU HAVE A ROLE TO PROTECT EACH AND EVERY PERSONTHAT YOU INTERACT WITH. THAT IS WHY WE ARE SOCIAL DISTANCING AND YOU ARE SOCIAL DISTANCING. TO EVERY AMERICAN, WHEN YOU ARE PROTECTING YOURSELF, YOU ARE PROTECTING OTHERS.IF YOU INADVERTENTLY BROUGHT THIS VIRUS HOME WITH SOMEONE TO A PRE-EXISTING CONDITION, MY GRANDMOTHER LIVED WITH THAT FOR 88 YEARS. THAT IS AN A MESSAGE THAT IS IMPORTANT.THIS IS A REALITY.YOU CAN SEE THE NUMBER OF DEATHSTHAT ARE OCCURRING. WE ALL HAVE A ROLE IN PREVENTINGTHEM. THANK YOU FOR THE WORK YOU DO TOGET OUR MESSAGE TO OTHERS TO MAKE SURE EVERY AMERICAN UNDERSTANDS HOW IMPORTANT THEIR ROLE IS AS WE MOVE THROUGH THE NEXT FIVE DAYS TO NOT LET UP. I HEAR REPORTS THAT THERE ARE NEW CASES ARE INCREASING OR THE HOSPITALIZATIONS ARE INCREASING.THE NUMBER OF NEW CASES OVER THELAST THREE DAYS HAVE BEEN CONSISTENT BUT NOT RISING.YOU WILL SEE HOSPITAL CASES CONTINUE TO INCREASE BECAUSE THEY ARE A REFLECTION OF WHAT HAPPENED ONE TO TWO WEEKS AGO BEFORE THE FULL MITIGATION EFFORTS WERE PUT INTO PLACE.NO MATTER WHAT COMMUNITY, COUNTYOR STATE CAN WORK WITH US TO ENSURE THAT WE PREVENT THE SPREAD OF THIS VIRUS TO OTHERS. I THANK YOU.DR. FAUCI: I WANT TO SPEND A COUPLE OF MINUTES TELLING YOU ABOUT THE INFORMATION WE GOT ON THE WEEKLY CALL WE HAVE AT LEASTONCE A WEEK BY W.H.O. TO GIVE USINFORMATION.IN THAT REGARD, I WANT TO APOLOGIZE TO MY CURRENT RESPONSETO YOU WHEN YOU ASKED ME ABOUT THE CHINA DEAL. I SHOULD HAVE RESPONDED TO YOU, BUT THAT'S NOT MY STYLE.MY JOB IS I'M A SCIENTIST PHYSICIAN AND I DON'T GET INVOLVED IN THAT STUFF. GETTING BACK TO THE W.H.O.WE RAN INTO SOME NEW INTERESTINGINFORMATION, CHINA AND OTHERS HAVE BEEN HIT PRIOR THAN WE DID.ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WAS STRIKING TO ME AND I THROW IT OUT BECAUSE IT IS SOMETHING WE WILL FACE, BUT NOT FACING IT NOW, OUR CHINESE COLLEAGUES ARE VERY CONCERNED BECAUSE THEY WENTTHROUGH THE ENTIRE CYCLE OF THE YOU ARE CURVE TO COME DOWN. THEY HAVE VERY FEW CASES. BUT WHAT THEY ARE STARTING TO SEE THEY ARE RELAXING THE RESTRAINTS ON TRAVEL AND WANTED TO WARN US THAT WHEN WE GET SUCCESSFUL, MAKE SURE YOU VERY CAREFULLY EXAMINE HOW YOU ARE GOING TO RELEASE THE CONSTRAINTSON INPUT. I KNOW WE ARE GOING TO BE SUCCESSFUL ON PUTTING THIS UNDERCONTROL.WE DON'T WANT TO INPUT CASES IN.THAT'S THE FIRST THING. THE SECOND THING THAT WAS IMPORTANT, IT WAS SOMETHING THATDR. BIRX MENTIONED. WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE INFLECK SHON OF THE CURVE, WE NOWVILLE MULTIPLE DIFFERENT COUNTRIES THAT HAVE GONE THROUGH VARIOUS STAGES OF THEIR INDIVIDUAL OUTBREAKS AND YOU COULD LEARN SOMETHING FROM THEM ABOUT WHERE YOU ARE IN YOUR OWN OUTBREAK. FOR EXAMPLE, WHEN CHINA WENT UP,WHAT HAPPENED IS THEY JUST DIDN'T TURN AROUND THEY WENT FROM GOING THROUGH, I'LL TAKE ANARBITRARY NUMBER, 500 CASES, NEXT DAY WAS 1,000 AND THEN 1,500 AND THEN 2,000. ONCE THE NEW CASES START TO FLATTEN OUT YOU GET TO THE POINTWHERE THE INFLECK SHON GOES DOWN. THE THING THAT DR. BIRX MENTIONED, YOU DON'T DECLARE VICTORY BUT YOU ARE ON THE WAY WHERE YOU WANT TO GO. AND I THINK THAT IS VERY IMPORTANT.THE THIRD AND FINAL THING THAT ITHINK IT GETS BACK TO THE QUESTION THAT MANY OF YOU IN THEAUDIENCE ASKED OF US, WOULD THISBE A SEASONAL CYCLE THING?I THINK IT VERY WELL MIGHT. THE REASON I SAY THAT, WHAT WE ARE STARTING TO SEE NOW IN THE SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE COUNTRIES ISTHAT WE ARE HAVING CASES THAT ARE APPEARING AS THEY GO INTO THEIR WINTER SEASON AND THEY HAVE A SUBSTANTIAL OUTBREAK, IT WILL BE INEVITABLE THAT WE NEED TO BE PREPARED THAT WE'LL GET A CYCLE THE SECOND TIME.WHAT DOES THAT MEAN FOR US? IT TOTALLY EMPHASIZES THE NEED TO DO WHAT WE ARE DOING IN DEVELOPING A VACCINE, TESTING ITQUICKLY AND TRY TO GET IT READY AND HAVE A VACCINE AVAILABLE. AND DO THE TRIALS OF DRUGS SO WEWILL HAVE A MENU OF DRUGS THAT WE HAVE SHOWN TO BE EFFECTIVE AND SAFE. I KNOW TO BE SUCCESSFUL INPUTTING THIS DOWN NOW, WE NEEDTO BE PREPARED FOR ANOTHER CYCLEAND WE ARE DOING WILL PREPARE USWELL. REPORTER: ON VENTILATORS, THERE IS REPORTING THAT THERE IS ONLY 16,000 IN THE NATIONAL STOCKPILE.GIVE US CLARITY, HOW MANY VENTILATORS DO YOU HAVE IN THE NATIONAL STOCKPILE? WHO ELSE IS MAKING THEM AND HOW LONG WILL IT BE TO MAKE THEM. THERE ISN'T ENOUGH? THE VICE PRESIDENT: IT IS A SINGULAR FOCUS AND GOOD PORTION OF OUR SUPPLY CHAIN SUPPLY TASK FORCE AT FEMA SINCE THE PRESIDENT STOOD UP FEMA'S NATIONAL RESPONSE CENTER AND WE ARE MAKING PROGRESS IN A VARIETYOF WAYS.FIRST, THERE IS THE NATIONAL STOCKPILE WHICH YOU REFER AND DEPENDING WHAT HAS BEEN DISTRIBUTED, WE DISTRIBUTED 4,000 VENTILATORS TO NEW YORK INCLUDING VENTILATORS WE SENT TONEW YORK CITY.THERE IS THAT NUMBER OF SOME 20,000 -- LESS THAN 20,000. I WON'T DISPUTE YOUR NUMBER.THERE ARE LITERALLY BY MORE ESTIMATES MORE THAN 150,000 VENTILATORS IN THE BROAD HEALTH CARE SYSTEM ALL ACROSS THE COUNTRY.AND WORKING WITH DOCTORS AND THERE WAS A VERY IMPORTANT CONFERENCE CALL TODAY, WE HAVE DETERMINED SEVERAL WEEKS AGO THAT THE DEVICES THAT THE DOCTORS USE FOR OUTPATIENT SURGERY CAN BE CONVERTED TO A VERY USEFUL VENTILATOR. I SPOKE TO GOVERNOR CUOMO ABOUT THAT TODAY AND HE IS IN THE PROCESS OF SERVING GOVERNORS AROUND THE COUNTRY. WE BELIEVE THERE ARE TENS OF THOUSANDS OF VENTILATORS THAT CAN BE CONVERTED NOW THAT THE F.D.A. HAS GIVEN GUIDANCE.WE HAVE PRODUCED A HELPFUL VIDEOTO EXPLAIN HOW THOSE DEVICES CANBE CONVERTED. BUT WE ARE WORKING WITH GENERAL MOTORS AND COMPANIES TO SPEED UP. CONTRACTS ARE BEING REVIEWED ANDVETTING THEIR CAPABILITY. BUT ONE OF THE OTHER IDEAS AS WELOOK AT AREAS OF THE COUNTRY THAT ARE MOST IMPACT AND MORE THAN HALF OF THE CASES FOR CORONAVIRUS ARE IN NEW YORK STATE AND IN THE REGION AROUND THERE, WILL FOCUS OUR RESOURCES INCLUDING VENTILATORS ON WHERE COMMUNITIES ARE STRUGGLING THE MOST WITH CORONAVIRUS.ONE OF THE WAYS WE ARE WORKING THROUGH THAT AT FEMA NOW IS BY SPEEDING UP PRODUCTION AND AT THE SAME TIME WORKING WITH THE NATIONAL SUPPLY MAYBE IN AREAS THAT DON'T HAVE A PARTICULAR BURDEN YET WITH THE CORONAVIRUS AND MAKING SURE WE ARE MANUFACTURING AND BACKFILLING AND MEETING THAT NEED.WHAT I'M TELLING YOU, WE HAVE ANEXTRAORDINARY TEAM. THE TWO-STAR ADMIRAL IS DOING ANINCREDIBLE JOB. WE ARE IDENTIFYING RESOURCES ANDARRANGING CONTRACT. DR. BIRX, MAYBE YOU CAN SPEAK TOTHE VENTILATORS.DR. BIRX: I THANK DRR MARRY PETERSON AND THE AMERICAN ASSOCIATION, BECAUSE THEY IMMEDIATELY WHEN WE ASKED THEM, THEY WENT TO WORK ON IT AND HAVEQUESTION AND ANSWERS FOR EVERY DOCTOR IN EVERY CITY HAS BEEN WORKING WITH THEIR STATE AND LOCAL OFFICIALS ON HOW TO CHANGETHIS. IT'S NOT ONLY THE VENTILATORS THEY HAVE BEEN SUPPLYING BUT THEPEOPLE RUNNING THOSE VENTILATORSTHAT ARE NOT DOING ELECTIVE SURGERY.CHANGING THAT ELECTIVE SURGERY PIECE HAS FREED UP A LOT OF ADDITIONAL RESOURCES. WHEN I TALKED TO YOU ABOUT -- WEHAVE DONE SOME THINGS THAT ARE HORIZONTAL ACROSS THE COUNTRY BUT COLLECTING DATA NOW IN A COUNTY BY COUNTY WAY. IT'S NOT EQUAL EVERYWHERE.THERE ARE PLACES THAT ARE VERY SPARED AND PLACES WHERE THERE ISMORE. WE HAVE A VAST COUNTRY THAT HAS A LOT OF CAPACITY AND A LOT OF INFRASTRUCTURE. LOOKING SPECIFICALLY WHERE THE VIRUS HAS BEEN AND WHERE IS IT GOING AND WHO HAS FREED UP RESOURCES FROM WHERE IT HAS BEEN. IT HIT WASHINGTON STATE BEFORE IT HIT NEW YORK AND LOOKING AT THOSE PIECES TO ENSURE HOW WE CAN MOVE EQUIPMENT AROUND BASED ON THE NEED.AND SO I KNOW IT HAS BECOME A PLACE WHERE PEOPLE ARE LOOKING NUMBERS VERSUS WHAT IS NEEDED.IF YOU DO THESE PROJECTIONS AND GET TO THOSE PROJECTIONS LIKE INGERMANY AND OTHERS THAT IMPLIED THAT 50% OF THE POPULATION WOULDGET INFECTED, I WANT TO BE VERY CLEAR, THE ONLY WAY THAT HAPPENS, BECAUSE THIS VIRUS REMAINS CONTINUOUSLY MOVING THROUGH POPULATIONS IN THIS CYCLE, IN THE FALL CYCLE AND ANOTHER CYCLE.THAT'S THOUGH THROUGH THREE CYCLES WITH NOTHING BEING DONE. WE ARE DEALING WITH CYCLE A RIGHT NOW, NOT ONE THAT COULD COME IN THE FALL OF 2020 OR OTHER INNOVATIONS AND NOT 2021. WE ARE PLANNING FOR THE FUTURE. AND I THINK THE NUMBERS THAT HAVE BEEN PUT OUT THERE ARE ACTUALLY VERY FRIGHTENING TO PEOPLE. BUT I CAN TELL YOU IF YOU GO BACK AND LOOK AT WUHAN AND ALL OF THESE PROVINCES AND TALK ABOUT 60,000 PEOPLE BEING INFECTED, IF YOU SAY THEY ARE ASYMPTOMATIC, 60,000 PEOPLE OUT OF 80 MILLION, THAT IS NOWRE NEAR THE NUMBER.IT IS FRIGHTENING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. ON A MODEL YOU RUN FULL OUT.IF YOU HAVE ZERO CONTROLS AND YOU DO NOTHING AND WE KNOW THAT EVERY AMERICAN IS DOING SOMETHING.AND SO I THINK WHAT OUR JOB RIGHT NOW IS TO CAREFULLY DETAILON A HOSPITAL BY HOSPITAL, STATEBY STATE, COUNTY BY COUNTY WHAT THE INFRASTRUCTURE NEEDS ARE BOTH FROM THE STOCKPILE AND GENEROSITY OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. REPORTER: WELL INTENTIONED ARE SELLING CLOTHE MASKS. CAN YOU WEIGH IN. THEY HAVE GREAT INTENTIONS AND MIXED FEEDBACK ON WHETHER THAT IS A GOOD IDEA. CLOTHING MANUFACTURERS. IS THAT HELPFUL AND SOMETHING YOU RECOMMEND?DR. FAUCI: WHAT WE'RE SEEING IS A RATHER SIGNIFICANT INFLOW OF MASKS COMING IN THAT ARE AVAILABLE.IF YOU DON'T HAVE A MASK AND YOUNEED A MASK AND IT'S APPROPRIATEFOR YOU TO WEAR IT, DO WHAT YOU CAN.BUT I DON'T SEE THAT NOW AS A NECESSITY GIVEN WHAT'S GOING ON RIGHT NOW.VICE PRESIDENT PENCE: WE'LL TAKEA COUPLE MORE.REPORTER: WE KEEP HEARING REPORTS OF COMPETITION AMONG STATES, THE GOVERNOR OF KENTUCKYSAID YESTERDAY THAT HIS STATE WAS IN LINE TO BUY SOME EQUIPMENT BUT FEMA CAME IN AND BOUGHT IT, PURCHASED IT FROM UNDER THEM. HE SAID THIS IS CREATING A PROBLEM FOR STATES BECAUSE ON THE ONE HAND THEY'RE BEING TOLD TO GET THE EQUIPMENT THEMSELVESES IF THEY CAN AND ON THE OTHER HAND THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IS BUYING UP THE SUPPLY CHAIN. IS THIS A PROBLEM YOU'RE HEARINGABOUT AND WHAT IS YOUR ADVICE TOSTATES LIKE KENTUCKY HAVING THISISSUE?VICE PRESIDENT PENCE: I SPOKE TOTHE GOVERNOR OF MICHIGAN, GOVERNOR WHITMER, ABOUT JUST THAT. WE PUT OUR FEMA REGIONAL REPRESENTATIVE RIGHT ON THE CASE. WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE ARE-- WE'RE ACQUIRING EVERY BIT AS MUCH AS WE CAN. THROUGH FEMA. BUT AS WE WORK WITH THE SUPPLY CHAIN, WE WANT TO HAVE FULL COORDINATION WITH THE STATES ANDTHE -- AND WE'RE LOOKING INTO THOSE MATTERS.MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT. THIS FEMA TEAM AT THE PRESIDENT'S DIRECTION IS LINING INTO THIS EFFORT, LEAVE NOTHING STONE UNTURNED. LITERALLY SEARCHING NOT JUST THENATION BUT THE WORLD FOR ALL THESE CRITICAL SUPPLIES AND AS THE PRESIDENT JUST REPORTED TO YOU, WE'RE IN THE PROCESS OF TSYPLAKOV -- OF SHIPPING 9.4 MILLION N-95S REPRATORS, MILLIONS OF SURGICAL MISKS, 3.1 MILLION FACE SHIELDS, THE LIST GOES ON.BE -- WE'LL BE SHIPPING THOSE EVERY DAY.AS I TOLD GOVERNOR WHITMER, WE WANT TO PARTNER WITH HER AND EVERY GOVERNOR AND MAKE SURE THELEFT HAND KNOW WHAT IS THE RIGHTHAND IS DOING IN TERMS OF ACQUIRE REGULAR SOURCES.REPORTER: ON THE MASK QUESTION, PEOPLE, HEALTH CARE WORK THORNSEGROUND STILL REPORT THERE ARE MASK SHORTAGES. WHAT TIMELINE IS THERE FOR MAKING SURE EVERYONE WHO NEEDS MASKS GETS THOSE? VICE PRESIDENT PENCE: I'LL LET DR. BIRX ADDRESS THAT AS WELL.LET ME SAY AGAIN I JUST RECEIVE READ PORT, WE'LL BE DETAILING ITBEFORE THE END OF THE WEEK, WHERE WE'VE LITERALLY IDENTIFIEDSIGNIFICANT RESOURCES NOT JUST AROUND THE COUNTRY BUT AROUND THE WORLD OF THE MASKS THAT CAN BE USED BY HEALTH CARE WORKERS. AND -- BUT AS DR. BIRX SAID, WE ARE FOCUSING THOSE RESOURCES ON THE AREAS WHERE HEALTH CARE WORKERS ARE MOST EXPOSED TO THE PROSPECT OF CONTRACTING THE CORONAVIRUS.THE PRESIDENT HAS MADE IT CLEAR FROM EARLY ON, RIGHT AFTER SEEING TO THE NEEDS OF AMERICANSWHO ARE STRUGGLING WITH THE CORONAVIRUS, MAKING SURE THEY HAVE THE SUPPORT THAT THEY NEED ON THE SAME LEVEL OF PRIORITY, WE WANT OUR HEALTH CARE WORKERS TO HAVE PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT TO BE ABLE TO DO THEIRJOB SAFELY AND WE'RE WORKING ON THAT. I WILL TELL YOU, I SPOKE ABOUT THIS TODAY TO SEVERAL GOVERNORS,NOT ONLY THE GOVERNOR OF MICHIGAN BUT THE GOVERNOR OF INDIANA AND PRESIDENT TRUMP AND I COULDN'T BE MORE GRATEFUL.THE WAY GOVERNORS AROUND THE COUNTRY ARE JOINING US IN CALLING ON BUSINESSES TO GO BACKTO THEIR WAREHOUSES AND IDENTIFYINDUSTRIAL MASKS, N-95 MASKS THAT BECAUSE OF THE CHANGE THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP INSISTED ON IN THE LAW CAN NOW BE USED BY HOSPITAL WORKERS. AND THEY'RE PERFECTLY ACCEPT TO BELIEVE PROTECT HEALTH CARE WORKER FROM THE POSSIBILITY OF ARESPIRATORY DISEASE.WE'RE CALLING ON EVERY BUSINESS ACROSS AMERICA, WHEN MANY BUSINESSES ARE IDLED, GO BACK TOINJURE STOREHOUSES, IDENTIFY N-95 MASKS, THEY CAN CALL FEMA, THE STATE HEALTH CARE SERVICES OR JUST LOAD THEM UP ON A FLATBED AND DRIVE THEM TO THEIR LOCAL HOSPITAL. WE HEAR STORY NERVOUS STATE IN THE UNION OF PEOPLE DOING THAT. SO IT'S HAPPENING ALL AT THE SAME TIME.WE'LL BE DETAILING THE PROGRESS WE'RE MAKING ON MASKS.ANYTHING FURTHER? DR. BIRX: I WANT TO ADD ONE PIECE.THAT IS A CALL OVER THE STATE OUT THERE AND EVERY COUNTY THAT HAS BEEN DOING COMMUNITY-BASED TESTING.THE F.D.A. PUT OUT NEW GUIDANCE,WE TALKED ABOUT IT SEVERAL DAYS AGO THAT PEOPLE CAN DO SELF-TESTING IN THE DRIVE THROUGH WHERE YOU GIVE THEM THE MATERIALS TO DO IT IN THEIR CAR AND YOU PICK IT UP IN A BIOHAZARD BAG.THIS WOULD FREE UP ALL OF THAT P.P.E. THAT YOU SEE BEING UTILIZED IN THOSE DRIVE THROUGHSBACK TO THE HOSPITALS AND BACK TO THE CLINICS THAT NEED IT MOST. WE HAVE TO MOVE TO THE NEW TECHNOLOGY, F.D.A., WORKED TIRELESSLY TO GET THAT OUT THERESO IT COULD BE SPARING OF GOWNS AND GLOVES AND FULL RESPIRATORY N-95'S. THIS IS THE IN A MOMENT MOVE TO THAT SELF-TESTING FRONT OF NOSE WITH THE NEW APPLICATORS THAT CAN BE UTILIZED SO THAT EVERY SINGLE BIT OF THE N-95 CAN BE PUT INTO THE HOSPITALS THAT NEEDIT. VICE PRESIDENT PENCE: LET ME JUST SAY WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU ALL TOMORROW.WE'LL BE BACK HERE WITH FURTHER PROGRESS AND NEWS.BUT IF I COULD JUST SAY TO EVERYAMERICAN, WE'LL GET THROUGH THIS. WE'LL GET THROUGH THIS. WE'LL GET THROUGH THIS TOGETHER.EVERY AMERICAN NEEDS TO UNDERSTAND THAT WHETHER YOU'RE IN AN AREA THAT'S IMPACTED BY THE CORONAVIRUS OR AN AREA WHERETHERE'S VERY FEW CASE, YOU DO YOUR PART TO PUT INTO PRACTICE 15 DAYS TO SLOW THE SPREAD, YOU WILL DO JUST THAT.YOU'LL IMPACT THE SPREAD OF THISCORONAVIRUS EPIDEMIC IN OUR COUNTRY.THESE EXPERTS TELL ME WE CAN SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCE THE NUMBER OF AMERICANS THAT WILL BE EXPOSED TO THE CORONAVIRUS AS EVERY AMERICAN CONTINUES TO PUT THESE GUIDELINES INTO PRACTICE. AND WE JUST KNOW THAT WITH ALL THE EXTRAORDINARY EFFORT THAT'S BEING DONE AT THE FEDERAL LEVEL BY THIS TREMENDOUS TEAM AND ALL OF OUR AGENCY, ALL THE GREAT LEADERSHIP BY GOVERNORS IN BOTH PARTIES ACROSS THE COUNTRY, WITHALL THE INCREDIBLE AND COURAGEOUS WORK BY HEALTH CARE WORKERS, WITH THE COOPERATION AND PRAYERS OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, WE WILL GET THIS DONE.WE WILL NOT ONLY -- WE WILL NOT ONLY SLOW THE SPREAD, WE'LL PROTECT THE VULNERABLE AND HEAL OUR LAND.
