Sunday, May 3, 2020: States Begin to Reopen, Even as Case Count Climbs

Sunday, May 3rd

More than 60,000 Americans died from coronavirus in April, but President Trump is fully focused on May - and his push to reopen the country as soon as possible.

On today's show: Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson; Boston Mayor Marty Walsh; Massachusetts Rep. Joe Kennedy III; Dr. Ashish Jha of the Harvard Global Health Institute and emergency room Dr. Megan Ranney; and Lisa Lerer of the New York Times, Toluse Olorunnipa of the Washington Post, and CNN's MJ Lee. via Knit
