The White House says millennials are the "core group" that will stop the Coronavirus, so they’ve laid out some guidelines for everyone to follow amid the pandemic. Also, it’s reported Trump tried to pay German scientists for a possible Coronavirus vaccine so he could secure exclusive rights to it. Everything inside..

Trump finally admitted the Coronavirus is “bad” and “not under control" today.

The president's tone dramatically changed as the White House announced new Coronavirus guidelines. You’ll recall, Trump has been very dismissive about the virus for weeks leading up today. Over the last two months, Trump had not put the public’s health as a priority. Now, ish has gotten real.

During today’s press briefing, the president acknowledged that the Coronavirus crisis could last until July or August, proving this is just the beginning of what’s to come. (It likely would be less if everyone TOOK HEED to requests to stay home for the next few weeks unless absolutely necessary.) He rolled out a 15-day guideline for everyday Americans.

“They think August, it could be July,” he said, referring to members of the White House task force. “Could be longer than that. But I’ve asked that question many, many times.”

Trump asked Americans to avoid social gatherings of more than 10 people and to limit discretionary travel. He also said the economy may be heading into a recession. The new rules also asked Americans to keep from eating and drinking in restaurants and bars.

“If everybody does what we’ve asked for in the next 15 days, we will see a dramatic difference,” https://www.businessinsider.com/trump-dr-birx-calls-millennials-the-core... ">said Dr. Deborah Birx, the coordinator of the White House coronavirus task force.

Dr. Birx said that millennials are "the core group that will stop the virus." At first, people thought young people were much less susceptible symptoms of the illness, however, they're still capable of spreading it around even if they feel perfectly fine.

"I want to speak particularly to our largest generations now, our millennials," Birx said. "I am the mom of two wonderful millennial young women who are bright and hard working, and I will tell you what I told to them: they are the core group that will stop this virus.

"They are the group that communicates successfully independent of picking up a phone," she continued. "They intuitively know how to contact each [other] without being in a large social gatherings."

He should be telling Trump himself this, since he was the main one downplaying this viruses for months and weeks, and even calling it a hoax. People will only take it as serious as the head person takes it.

Over the weekend, chatter online revealed young people were crowding bars despite the severity of the virus becoming clear.

 

 

 

 

Other guidelines include: 

If you have a serious underlying health condition, stay home and away from others.

Avoid discretionary travel, shopping trips and social visits.

Avoid eating or drinking in restaurants bars and food courts. Use drive-through, pickup and delivery options.

Do not visit nursing homes or retirement or long-term care facilities unless you are there to provide critical assistance.

Practice good hygiene such as washing your hands, especially after touching frequently used items or surfaces. Avoid touching your face.

As of now, Trump confirmed he's not ready to impose a national quarantine.

 

And get this...

Trump reportedly tried to recruit German scientists working on a Coronavirus vaccine by offering large sums of money to secure exclusive rights to it for the United States.

Business Insider reports:

The prominent German newspaper Welt am Sonntag reported that Trump had offered large sums of money to lure the Germany-based company CureVac to the US and to secure exclusive rights to a vaccine.

The firm is working with the federally owned Paul Ehrlich Institute for Vaccines and Biomedical Medicines on a vaccine for the coronavirus.

However, CureVac - the company Trump allegedly contacted about the vaccine - tweeted that's NOT true.

 

 

Hmph.

 

 

Today, Mayor London Breed announced San Francisco - alongside five other Bay Area counties - will be on a total lockdown to curb spread of COVID-19. They'll be on lockdown for three weeks beginning Tuesday (March 17th) at midnight.

The San Francisco Examiner reports:

The City will legally prohibit residents from leaving their homes except to meet basic needs including visiting the doctor, or buying groceries or medicine, until at least April 7, Mayor London Breed announced Monday.

San Francisco is joining five other Bay Area counties in issuing a shelter-in-place order. City officials decided to take the drastic measure after closing public schools and prohibiting large gatherings last week. The other counties are Contra Costa, Marin, Alameda, Santa Clara and San Mateo.
