(Studio: John Berman) A Keeping Them Honest look at what President Trump said about the coronavirus in his press briefing today introduced. [In response to questions, TRUMP - wants the schools open because children have strong immune systems & don't transmit easily, on why the medical experts are not on stage, how we are curing people soon, on how we have sheltered our seniors in nursing homes.] The facts & implications of the of the issues: no "cures" yet, delays in testing, why so many seniors have died, why there is not a plan for the schools. [Senator Mitt ROMNEY - outlines how we are still struggling due to oversight.]

(Studio: John Berman; Atlanta: Sanjay Gupta) The study in South Korea about transmission by kids even if they don't get as sick discussed; graph shown of the uptick in cases in Israel when schools opened, on what Trump said about a "cure": we need the scientists in the room at briefings, the new study on antibodies & immunity & what it might mean when there are few re-infections discussed. Live discussion held with former HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius about the virus & Trump's lack of a plan. [From Lawrence, Kansas, SEBELIUS - offers views on how the president lives in an alternative universe as deaths are on the uptick as there are hotspots in nursing home, no clear guidance on schools with no plans being carried out, what he said about Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot wanting federal help: dangerous false information, on issues of the CDC guidelines for schools being too hard, on the stance in Kansas on schools.]
