[Yesterday, President TRUMP - defends early decisions that make the risks low & most of the cases are recovering.] [Yesterday, FAUCI - outlines the timetable for a vaccine.] [CDC deputy dir. Dr. Anne SCHUCHAT@- says the containment strategy is working, but there will be more cases.] [On Tuesday, Senator John KENNEDY - asks {Homeland Security secretary} if we have enough respirators.] [Tonight, TRUMP - says it will disappear: nobody really knows.]

(Studio: Anderson Cooper; White House: John Harwood) The background to yesterday's press conference with the problems for Trump, who does not accept adverse developments, how it is not clear who knew about Vice President Mike Pence as czar, on the appointment of Deborah Birx% his reaction to the drop in the stock market with him blaming the Democrats discussed.

(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Live discussion held with Senator Richard Blumenthal. [In studio, BLUMENTHAL- says there is bipartisan alarm about this "happy talk" from Trump about the virus when we need action, how the administration has "hollowed out" public health service: many jobs unfilled, how a pandemic would be a Homeland Security matter, how Pence is a bad pick when expertise is needed.]
