Sunday, May 10, 2020: Coronavirus Reaches the White House

Sunday, May 10th

Coronavirus hits the West Wing - two White House staffers have tested positive, and three of the nation's top medical experts are now in self-imposed quarantine as a result of possible exposure. Despite that reminder of the continued risk, however, the White House and President Trump are forging ahead with an effort to reopen the country - even as may experts say it's far too soon. Driving that decision - the economic catastrophe gripping the U.S. More than 21 million jobs have been lost in just two months, adding financial uncertainty to American's already high levels of stress and anxiety about the future.
