PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — This week on Flashpoint: Host and KYW Newsradio Community Affairs reporter Cherri Gregg asks the burning questions over America's "-isms" that are making it difficult for the country to stop the spread of the coronavirus. 

People have been spotted in groups on beaches and in parks, and in some parts of the country, businesses have refused to close. The lack of compliance has forced some states to implement mandatory shelter-in-place orders. Plus, attacks and hate acts against Asian Americans are on the increase and myths, some race-based, are running rampant. 

Celebrities with no symptoms of coronavirus are getting access to COVID-19 tests, while the general public is told there is no access to testing except for the extremely ill, sparking claims of classism. Finally, President Trump has said he wants the country back to work by Easter as public health officials say that would be impossible, pitting capitalism against public health.
