Let's Look For That Light At The End Of The Tunnel
Today, Dom Giordano led off the program by talking about hope. Hope for the best, hope for a change, hope for a light at the end of the tunnel. In yesterday's crisis response team briefing, Dr. Deborah Birx spoke of the usage of antibodies to both test and treat Coronavirus, and many allusions are being made that Hydroxychloroquine may actually be the solution. Also, the Atlantic yearns to be divisive in a new op-ed that hones in on Republicans as virus deniers. And Governor Andrew Cuomo points out that the country will never be the same, but this worries Giordano.

Also, Dom and Hargan discuss the notion of a 'new normal' being proposed by politicians such as Governor's Murphy and Cuomo, and Hargan explains what he believes will be the 'new normal.' And the Deputy Secretary hits upon the country-wide need for PPEs, ventilators, and face masks.
