Everyone from medical officials to lawmakers on Capitol Hill are looking to make preparations for what the CDC says is an inevitable coronavirus outbreak in the country and pandemic across the globe. CDC Principal Deputy Director Anne Schuchat joins “CBS This Morning” to discuss their "aggressive approach" to keeping the disease contained.

  • hi american people, i give you my opinion for the covid19, in france, only the region where the weather is very cold are very infected, Paris, North of Paris, east near germany, in the south of france , the weather is sunny, the covid19 is very less, i dont know if it is because of the good weather near the sea in riviera, but next week , Paris will arrive to his top infection, not enough mask and hand protection for the french population, france is the 5th powerfull country in the world and nothing !!!! like in new york all the people who have a second house in the countryside have left, so if i can give you an advice, stay home, work at home if you can by computer and internet, use mask and hand protection if you go out to buy some food, be carefull its a global emergency and nobody is superman in this case, yesterday a young 16 year old girl was dead, the first symptom is the lake of taste & smell, i mean if you eat something you cannot recognise the taste , a high temperature and a dry cough, in france all the hopital are free for this crisis, so i think Trump dont have to joke with this desease, the american government is rich enough to offer a free treatment, i hope , god bless american and allah wakbar.

  • The plan to destroy the world’s population using bio-weapons.(made in China) This is what is happening now in the world.’ WAKE UP! THE prophecies are coming to fulfillment now. All the viruses are made in laboratories by evil people, and then they test them on humans by scattering a little bit here and a little bit there to see how the people react. Then in no time, they spread the virus, and it becomes "GLOBAL.” PRAY!! PRAY!! PRAY!! Be repentant and in a state of grace always. "Trust in GOD.” 🙏🙏❤❤

  • As someone who’s family are mostly in the medical field, I wouldn’t worry much about it. Only because it’s flu season in America and so far we have more recoveries than deaths. The only thing I’m worried about is how the government would be handling it, and how bad it’s going to be if a recovered person gets the virus again. Knowing Trump saying that’s it’s all in control, this virus inevitable and he does not have enough proof to claim that it’s under control. Sorry trump supporters, but I care about lives more than respecting the president when he’s not even respectful to all people. The Virus has only begun in America and we have no idea how bad it’s going to be. We don’t know exactly how worse it can get. I’m not sure how the medics are working with it all, but I’m assuming we’re still looking for vaccines. Flu season is a bigger problem in America, so don’t worry much about the Coronavirus, but I recommend everyone to keep up with any updates on the coronavirus.

  • Guess WHAT? The US may pay dearly for the lack of universal healthcare. With testing and treatment as expensive (like 3000 and more as it is, millions of UNINSURED and UNDER INSURED Americans and their families will and cannot afford to see a doctor, and the disease will spread even faster. WAKE UP AMERICA, this is a perfect example on why healthcare for all is a necessity not a luxury, not a privilege, and if the Dems are smart, they'll now be gifted with the perfect opportunity to make their case. Those of you who think they are safe with PRIVATE insurance paid by their employers or the government are FOOLING yourselves into thinking you can't end up with huge medical bills or bankruptcy situations. Become ill and lose your job and you'll find yourself in the same situation as those people you DESPISE so much because you are so afraid of paying ten bucks more in taxes each month. The more people cannot afford to get treated, the greater is the exposure, and the greater the possibility that YOUR INSURANCE won't save you from dying.

  • 1968 flu pandemic The 1968 flu pandemic was a category 2 flu pandemic whose outbreak in 1968 and 1969 killed an estimated one million people worldwide. It was caused by an H3N2 strain of the influenza A virus, descended from H2N2 through antigenic shift, a genetic process in which genes from multiple sub-types re-assorted to form a new virus. Because it originated in Hong Kong, the pandemic is also referred to as Hong Kong flu.
