9:05 pm
that we see is that the russian government kind of takes a hit in approval ratings when people are upset or dissatisfied but that and not putin himself but that seems to be changing now the economic dissatisfaction is a huge factor and a sociologist i spoke to recently was saying that if economic kind of measures from the government aren't stepped up and that support isn't there then the kremlin could have protests on its hands when case lockdown really is lest it really show in moscow now the u.s. government's top experts on infectious diseases dr anthony found she was warm but reopening the economy too soon could cause a new spike in corona virus cases testifying from home expressed concerns to a senate hearing about the risk of a fresh outbreak if the easing of law measures is rushed it also told the panel

up without having the capability of being able to respond effectively and efficiently my concern is that we will start to see little spikes might turn into outbreaks so all of us tell a doctor and the president have clashed repeatedly over how to deal with the pandemic so how is the white house likely to respond to his testimony. this rifle and at the same time and as well as deborah virtue of the task force repeatedly had to correct president trump's claim sometimes really bizarre claims like the one about injecting a death in fact and and his aides then told him that he would damage himself he then stopped his coronavirus briefings of course today anthony felt she testifying he was able to give his own take and that's not a very flattering one for president but he is in a very tough spot president trump because anthony felt as well as deborah burke said 2 very popular figure so attacking them could simply backfire and result in
9:08 pm
