A Minnesota nurse who left her family to treat the influx of COVID-19 patients in New York told “The Daily Briefing” Monday she felt compelled to “step up to the plate” as health care workers from across the country flock to coronavirus hot zones.

“I have been in nursing ten years now, and done lots of different things, mostly around emergency medicine and also teaching and I’ve always said, ‘Make sure that you are always willing and ready to step up to the plate,'” Liz Schaffer told host Dana Perino. “And so, right now, our patients that need us the most in health care are here in New York City, and so I answered that call. I stepped up to the plate, and here I am.”

AMERICA TOGETHER: UPLIFTING IMAGES

Schaffer flew to New York after Gov. Andrew Cuomo called on healthcare professionals from across the country to come and help the city’s ove-extended hospitals cope and confront the crisis at the epicenter of the outbreak.

“I answered that call. I stepped up to the plate, and here I am.”

—  Liz Schaffer

Schaffer said she and her new colleagues have “banded together as a team” to ensure the best care for those infected.

“I love being here,” she said. “The people here, so far have been very welcoming … we are treated phenomenally which is absolutely wonderful, [and] everything at the hospitals [is] going well. We are banding together as a team, both doctors and nurses, therapists to take care of all the patients that come in, and just doing our best to get them all the care that they deserve during this time.”

Schaffer also praised the people of New York City for showing their support and appreciation to her and other hospital workers.

“The first night here … we … happened to be outside, and all of a sudden people just started cheering, and people came up to us and they were like, ‘Are you nurses?’ They were taking pictures with us, saying ‘Thank you,’ it was so heartwarming, and it was the best feeling in the world,” she said.

“Now, today, in the past week when you go to work, and you’re walking to the subway or getting in an Uber or Lyft, people are like ‘Thank you so much, you are awesome’ and it’s just a great feeling.”

THE CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK STATE BY STATE

As of Monday afternoon, there more more than 130,000 confirmed coronavirus cases in New York state and more than 4,700 deaths.

Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine told “Bill Hemmer Reports” Monday that he is trying to balance the needs of Ohioans who are out of work with advice from medical experts about how long the prolonged partial shutdown of the state due to coronavirus should continue.

“Just as we have put together a group of doctors to help us through this, we’ve also put together a group of CEOs around the state, small businesses, midsize, and big and they’re advising us … on how we get back to work,” said DeWine, one of the first governors to limit public gatherings and close schools in response to the spread of the pandemic.

CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK STATE-BY-STATE

The Republican emphasized that the final decisions about when to implement the restrictions have been his and his alone.

“These are my decisions, so I’m not going to pass the buck to the medical community or anybody else,” he said.

DeWine added that he knows most Ohioans want to get back to their jobs and begin to work again, but also said physicians continue to be wary of when exactly the lifting of restrictions should take place.

“These are not mutually exclusive goals,” DeWine told host Bill Hemmer. “These are goals that are sequential. We’ve got to do everything we need to do to get through this and keep people alive. Then we have got to roll out.

“So, when we can we do that? I don’t think anybody knows that. But, we’re getting ready for that.”

DeWine added that it remains unclear when sporting events, concerts and conventions can again take place in the state.

Capitalism at risk of ‘radical transformation’ if US economic shutdown continues, Ben Shapiro warns

Capitalism is a risk of a “radical transformation” in America as long as the economy remains shut down due to the coronavirus, Ben Shapiro warned Monday.

Discussing the latest developments surrounding the outbreak on “The Ben Shapiro Show,” the outspoken conservative called for the collection of more data to indicate a proper time to re-open business in the U.S., warning of dire consequences if the economy were to remain shut down indefinitely.

[embedded content]

“The priority has to be reopening the economy as soon as we have the data to suggest how exactly we make that happen,” Shapiro said. “Anyone who pretends it doesn’t matter is really making me suspicious at this point.”

As the country begins what the Trump administration said will likely be “the toughest week yet,” some of the president’s critics have taken issue with his focus on the economic impact of the pandemic  — but Shapiro said the country is at risk of a “radical transformation” if the shutdown continues.

TRUMP SAYS ‘LIGHT AT END OF THE TUNNEL’ AFTER GRIM WARNINGS

“Trump is not saying when we reopen our economy…he is saying that he has to have that first and foremost in his mind,” Shapiro said. “One of the reasons why he is saying this is because, on the back of every crisis, there is an attempt to radically transform America. This happened in the aftermath of the Great Depression…a radical transformation in the lives of Americans between the relationship of government — federal, state, local and human beings,” he explained.

“”If you don’t want to see a vast underclass of Americans who are supported purely by the government, you need this economy up and running fast.”

— Ben Shapiro

“This happened in the aftermath of 9/11 with regard to our security…in the aftermath of every crisis there is an attempt to radically grow government on a permanent level, and that is just a normal human response because you want to prevent the bad thing from happening again.”

SURGEON GENERAL WARNS THIS WEEK WILL BE OUR ‘PEARL HARBOR MOMENT’ AS COVID-19 DEATH TOLL EXPECTED TO RISE

Shapiro continued, “Well, in this case, where you have the largest government reaction in the history of the United States, the prospect of that being made into a permanent feature of the American landscape is pretty scary and it’s one of the reasons why we should be looking to get out of this as fast as humanly possible,” he warned.

Shapiro reiterated his call to get the U.S. economy “up and running fast.”

“If you don’t want to see a vast underclass of Americans who are supported purely by the government, you need this economy up and running fast…and not only that, you need people to rely on capitalism…to get back to the model of ‘yeah capitalism is great — it’s what allows me to work,'” he explained.

“The prospect of that being made into a permanent feature of the American landscape is pretty scary and it’s…why we should be looking to get out of this as fast as humanly possible.”

— Ben Shapiro

“What you don’t want is government coming in, forcibly shutting down the entire economy, putting 30 million people out of work, and then those people have no choice but to vote for bigger government…they have no choice but to vote for a government that’s going to fill the gap created by the government in the first place,” Shapiro continued.

“That is the danger here,” he concluded. “People are going to radically rethink capitalism even though it wasn’t capitalism that failed here. What failed here was a global health shock followed by heavy government action.”

In the midst of all of these abrupt changes with offices and schools closed during the coronavirus outbreak, so many people are grappling with how to manage taking care of their children while also taking care of business.

I have lots of friends who were staring into the future thinking, “How are we going to do this?” I had an idea of how to help: Provide a few minutes each afternoon of Storytime with Dana.

I loved being read to as a child, and I remember Mrs. Laura Bush encouraging families to keep a story time routine with children as much as possible, especially during times of stress and uncertainty.

I hope that parents will be able to take a breather while I try to keep their kids occupied and entertained for a few minutes every day.

Today, I’ll be reading “Ivy the Very Determined Dog.” This is a true story about overcoming life’s challenges and finding your inner strength. If Ivy can do it, so can you!

Meghan McCain concerned Trump will use coronavirus fears for his own benefit

“The View” co-host Meghan McCain said on Monday that White House coronavirus press conferences should be aired – but not because she is a fan of the daily briefings.

Many members of the mainstream media have called for President Trump’s daily press conferences to be silenced or banned, with some critics comparing them to campaign rallies and others accusing the president of spreading misinformation. But McCain thinks the American people need to see what Trump has to say for the sake of transparency so that he can’t use people’s fears to his benefit.

“My argument for keeping the press conferences is, I think we’re at a place where President Trump, he has always been, a sort of totalitarian president in a way we have never historically seen before,” McCain said.

CORONAVIRUS: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

“My fear is he’s going to play on the American public’s fears in a draconian way, and possibly do this akin to the Patriot Act going forward, where he uses this moment in time to play off our fears for his own benefit,” McCain added. “I think seeing front and center what him and his team — I for one, became even more fearful of what was happening when I saw how inept Jared Kushner was.”

McCain added that doctors on the White House coronavirus task force are “doing a great job” but other people in the administration cause her to be concerned.

“My fear is if this is a moment in time that can be manipulated by our powers, and by the government in place, I want to hear front and center what he’s saying, no matter how ridiculous some of the press conference commentary ebbs into,” McCain said.

“I want to hear front and center what he’s saying, no matter how ridiculous some of the press conference commentary ebbs into.”

— Meghan McCain

Co-host Sunny Hostin disagreed, saying the press conferences are a problem because Americans believe things President Trump says and they are “akin” to his campaign rallies.

“There are people who believe him because he’s the president of the United States, and he’s giving misinformation to their own peril,” Hostin said.

Last week, Kushner, the president’s son-in-law, had commented on the nation’s stockpile of medical supplies during a press conference. The following day, Trump had a tense exchange with CBS News White House correspondent Weijia Jiang when she asked about Kushner’s comments.

Fox News’ Joseph A. Wulfsohn contributed to this report.

Former lawmaker believes WHO helped China conceal coronavirus cases: ‘They’ve lost credibility’

Former Michigan Congressman Thaddeus McCotter said on Monday that since the World Health Organization (WHO) helped China conceal the nature of the coronavirus outbreak, the United States should consider cutting off funding.

“The [WHO] has lost their objectivity, their accuracy, and their credibility,” McCotter told “America’s Newsroom.”

McCotter said that China is absolutely “concealing” their actual coronavirus cases.

“Not just because of the world opinion being upset with them, but because of what they’re doing to their own people. You have to remember that Ronald Reagan said … Communist China is an evil empire and you have to care about Chinese people because if you truly care about the Chinese people then you will condemn the Communist Chinese Party which oppresses them and abuses them on a daily basis.”

SCIENTISTS OFFER HOPEFUL NEWS ON COVID-19 VACCINE BASED ON VIRUS’ MUTATION RATE

Observers have become “over-focused” on China and its coronavirus data, according to the WHO official Dr. Michael Ryan.

Ryan defended China in a press conference on Thursday after a reporter asked him whether WHO has been “manipulated or taken for a ride” by accepting China’s data.

Ryan previously spoke out about the use of the term “Chinese virus,” saying it could lead to racial profiling against Asians when he saw “no blame in this,” meaning the origin of the virus, which was Wuhan, a city in China.

U.S. intelligence officials reportedly concluded that the Chinese government has not been transparent about its numbers and may have concealed the extent of the pandemic within its borders.

McCotter said that in order to resolve issues with China, the United States has to maintain economic sufficiency and hold them accountable for their predatory trade practices.

“One of the few good things that will come out of this, other than seeing Americans join together, is to see a dedication to re-establishing our ability to produce things that we’ll need for ourselves such as pharmaceuticals.”

Fox News medical contributor Dr. Nicole Saphier on Monday provided tips to stay safe while going to the grocery store during the coronavirus pandemic.

America’s Newsroom” host Sandra Smith asked Saphier if people should stop going to the grocery store altogether, especially because Dr. Deborah Birx, a member of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, made such a suggestion recently.

Saphier answered by saying, “I have a hard time responding to that.”

“Thousands of people are on ventilators now and this is a big week for people because some of these people have been on ventilators for multiple weeks now and this is when we’re either going to see people dying or people coming off of the ventilators and recovering,” Saphier explained. “And so they’re trying to keep as many people out of the hospitals as possible because … the hospitals are saying they only have a few ventilators left.

“We don’t want more people on the ventilators this week. We need to care for the people who are already there. That’s why they are saying try to stay in,” she continued.

Most businesses remain closed to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, but supermarkets have been considered essential businesses, as they provide millions of Americans with food and supplies.

CORONAVIRUS: WHAT TO KNOW

Supermarkets throughout the U.S. have implemented safety measures during the pandemic, but some officials have recommended cutting back on grocery visits over the next couple of weeks.

“The next two weeks are extraordinarily important,” White House coronavirus response coordinator Deborah Birx said at a press conference on Saturday, according to the New York Post. “This is the moment to not be going to the grocery store, not going to the pharmacy, but doing everything you can to keep your family and your friends safe.”

Currently there are more than 337,900 coronavirus cases reported in the U.S. with more than 9,600 deaths, according to data compiled by Fox News.

“If you need to go the grocery store absolutely go to the grocery store, but please please please consider wearing a mask, make sure you are washing your hands multiple times,” Saphier recommended.

She noted that “some people tend to wear gloves and then think that they’re OK and they forget that they’ve touched things and then they touch their face and that’s how they get infected.”

Saphier encouraged people to adhere to social distancing and maintain 6 feet among people when inside the grocery store. She also recommended calling up the grocery store before going to see how busy the store is at that time.

“If you need to go to the pharmacy, if you need to go to the grocery store you should absolutely go, but if you don’t have to go, if you were just going because you’re really craving like a coffee cake, maybe you hold off for a week,” she concluded.

Fox News’ David Aaro contributed to this report.

MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” host Mika Brzezinski suggested President Trump has a “financial tie” to hydroxychloroquine on Monday because he has repeatedly promoted the drug as a possible treatment for coronavirus.

Co-host Joe Scarborough pondered aloud why Trump has “pushed an unproven drug” when Brzezinski made the claim.

“A lot of people would say, follow the money. There’s got to be some sort of financial tie to someone, somewhere that has the president pushing this repeatedly,” Brzezinski said.

CORONAVIRUS: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

“Mika must be immediately challenged to produce whatever evidence she might have in support of her explosive claim. To accuse the President of the United States of outright corruption in the midst of the greatest crisis in the lives of most Americans, is a libel most vile unless she can substantiate it,” Finkelstein wrote.

MSNBC did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Limited studies have suggested hydroxychloroquine, an antimalarial drug, could treat coronavirus. An international poll of thousands of doctors recently rated hydroxychloroquine the “most effective therapy” for coronavirus.

“We’ve bought a tremendous amount of the hydroxychloroquine,” Trump told reporters Sunday, saying the country has stockpiled 29 million pills of the drug. “There are some signs it works on this, some very strong signs. … They’re not expensive. What do you have to lose?”

The president noted he’s “not a doctor,” but observed that the Food and Drug Administration [FDA] had issued emergency authorization for physicians to use the drug to treat coronavirus.

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, said on “America’s Newsroom” on Monday that small business owners should expect “bureaucratic hurdles” when applying for the loans provided by the coronavirus relief package.

Host Ed Henry noted to Cruz that President Trump’s critics have said that the process of getting those loans hasn’t been smooth, with phone lines tied up and some banks moving slowly.

“We have appropriated $377 billion for emergency small business loans administered through the Small Business Administration, which in turn uses local banks, community banks to administer those loans,” Cruz explained.

He noted that it’s too soon to tell how the process is going since it just began on Friday.

“Are there going to be bureaucratic hurdles? Of course. Any gigantic government program is going to have bureaucratic hurdles, any $2 trillion bill is going to have significant problems,” he continued.

CORONAVIRUS: WHAT TO KNOW

Last month, President Trump signed a more than $2 trillion legislative package to combat the coronavirus pandemic and send economic relief to workers and businesses squeezed by restrictions meant to stop the outbreak’s spread.

The legislation amounts to the costliest stimulus plan in U.S. history. It includes checks for most Americans, boosted unemployment aid, help for small business as well as a massive loan fund for corporations. On Friday, banks started administering the loans.

Small business owners started applying on Friday for the loans, which are designed to keep salons, restaurants and other such outfits open while retaining much of their workforce until the virus’ spread abates and the economy can begin climbing back to normal.

Small businesses have been ravaged by the economic slowdown that followed the country’s massive quarantining to prevent spread of the novel coronavirus; the quarantines have continued as the death toll from the virus mounts, increasing unemployment to levels not seen since the Great Depression of the 1930s.

Under the plan, small businesses can apply for federal subsidized, low-interest loans for the lesser of $10 million or a percentage of their payroll. The government will pay off the loans made by the bank in their entirety if the business maintains its workforce.

“Those small business loans are designed so that if you own a restaurant, or you own a bar, or a nail salon, or a hardware store, a movie theater, any small business with 500 employees or fewer, you can go to your local community bank, you can get an emergency loan and if you use that loan to pay for payroll and salary, to pay for rent or mortgage on your business or to pay for utilities, that loan is entirely forgivable,” Cruz said.

“It becomes a grant and that applies even if you’ve already furloughed your employees. You can hire them back and use those forgivable loan proceeds to pay paychecks. That’s designed to help get millions of people back in their job, back getting a paycheck.

“We have to see,” Cruz continued, describing the small business loan program. “That will take weeks, if not a couple of months to see how it operates.”

In an appearance on “Fox & Friends” Monday, Col. Kimberlee Aiello explained the use of the Javits Center in New York City, which was recently approved by President Trump to ease the burden on medical providers flooded by coronavirus patients.

“We look for the need and, really, what the state and city asked for. And what we’re seeing is that there is also needs at the front lines and the front lines are the city and state hospitals,” the 44th Commander of the Medical Brigade said.

The 44th Medical Brigade is a United States Army unit that provided medical support and health care in Fort Bragg, North Carolina. They were directed by the Department of Defense to aid first responders in New York City.

Aiello said that their ability to place providers at the front lines gives “hope to decrease pressure” on medical providers in city hospitals.

Trump on Thursday approved New York City’s Javits Center to begin treating COVID-19 patients to free up space in the city’s crowded hospitals, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced.

The Javits Center, located between 34th and 40th streets on the west side of the city, in Hell’s Kitchen, had been reconfigured earlier this week into a temporary hospital with 2,500 beds to treat non-coronavirus patients.

As of Thursday, there were nearly 52,000 COVID-19 cases in New York City alone, with 1,397 deaths, according to the latest figures from Johns Hopkins University.

The arrangement with the Javits Center was one of many makeshift hospitals set up in the city to deal with the onslaught of coronavirus patients.

Over the next few weeks, spaces — including pro tennis courts, college dorms and a cruise ship terminal — are supposed to start housing patients as New York state races to roughly triple its hospital capacity.
