that is more than we ever had in the great depression, six times, country, south korea where maybe getting infected. the issue is looking at quality and the financial crisis. it does a number it provides but, qualitative and calling up $40 billion to hospitals, not my hospitals all around the just hospitals but the country asking how is that? ventilators and the pp and what what is the icu like? the medical community needs. personal shortages, and that is personal checks individually's much more informative to me than for families capping out looking at raw numbers and what starting to phase out at my colleagues are facing day in $75,000. and day out to gauge where this but you know what it does for virus is across the country. small businesses that are doing >> bill: a fascinating answer. so much to help shut down? what are they telling you? it provides resources for them. can you put that in for us? it gives them alone but if they >> if you are calling new york, take that money and play their employee to keep them working seattle, you get a different where they pay their rent or utility, that is a grant and you story than calling someone in a smaller town or smaller part of don't have to pay that part the country. this will not be a wave that back. the larger business, low it's a country all at once. certain places have an early interest loan but also tax advantage to pay their employees peek, and certain peaks, certain partial. retention, we want people to places a late peak. and at least in the beginning of stay working to keep in their this. it will take time to get to every city and i think over a jobs. these are the key elements of this bill to actually help. period of a year or so, every >> bill: a few points on the city will be impacted by that is not something that will be a screen, $500 million for monolithic wave that occurs.
i think it is important that we corporations, $130 billion are making sure the resources get to places like new york that hospitals, $150 billion, and food stamps, 1200 checks for need them right now. and in pittsburgh right now, we most americans, $600 for the don't have that type of crisis unemployed and on and on it in our icus in pittsburgh but we may get them they are and may need the resources later. goes. tom massie from kentucky had an it is important to be flexible issue with this because he with getting the resources worth wanted everybody on the record. here is what he said when asked desperately needed now. >> bill: okay, more than about it last hour. >> they are trying to cover up 500,000 cases per testing, their votes. they had enough people to pass right? where do we -- as we look at the bill, but still refused to this graph 540,000 plus, how have it recorded. they told me they were trying to high do we go, doctor? >> so if you look back at 2009 protect members. >> bill: this went back and forth over night and you saw him put it on the record. h1 n160000000 cases occurred in he blamed speaker pelosi for the united states over a period that short pause he considers of one year. so we do expect to see a lot of it. >> that is unfortunate. as you know we have a number of cases and that number go up as members who have the virus. we get more testing. remember most of those cases a number of members who were will be mild and not require quarantined. if you are in new york city, you hospitalization. so it is nothing to worry about can't make it down. they will fly through the major in terms of the number that we will get fed ex with those cases airports who have problems and people who have their spouses will be hospitalized and what who are pregnant, who have the parents who lived with him. will that due to icu capacity it is a challenge to make sure and mechanical ventilation. to come back but we want to make we expect to see a large part of
sure this was passed. the population in fact just like the democrats have held this up but we could have got it done 2009 h1 n1. earlier in the week. >> bill: last question here, but we do have everybody on the record. you know what we were able to do? we did not pass it with globally, 585,000 cases unanimous consent. confirmed. 130,000 recovered a pier that is i would never agree to that. a 20% rate at the moment. we were able to have three hours of debate. certainly, a good sign in green. a voice for those who were not able to make it that could actually put across the desk how is that impressive figure for you now or can you say at 20% they would stand on this. how they would stand on the recovery? bill. >> remember recovery is defined what happen here and what massie was able to do is bring a number of people back. differently than clinician defines recovery. we couldn't get everybody into recovery may mean to test that the chambers but now you have a are negative, not the activity of daily living. number of people flying back to so i would not look so much as their home city after being the recovery as a sign. more of a laboratory definition together. >> bill: i entirely understand of recovery than actually being and respect the position you able to leave the hospital and take. i guess what he is saying do your activities and daily $2 trillion has never been here living. but i do think it is important to see all the patients are before, and we should be able to recovered, but remember, the reflect that in the vote count. number is different than what >> that is exactly what we were you would use in everyday language of someone being able to achieve that. recovered to. >> bill: great stuff, because you voted on the bill. you have a record across the thank you, doctor, we will bring desk and you have three hours of debate. it back to pittsburgh today from >> bill: we already have been johns hopkins, thank you, sir. >> thank you. phase 4 but what would be in a >> bill: in a moment a doctor

whatever may come. obviously, we see a spread but one reason why we are seeing a spread, we now have more robust capabilities to test and identify those who have it. we are prepared for it. resa place to celebrate,been to take a first date, we have been getting ready for months now, all the way back to to grab a meal between soccer practice and piano. january. we are working to ensure that we have an adequate number of beds, and even though tables are empty at the moment... ...the kitchens are full, adequate number of ventilators, adequate testing capability but prepping everything so it's just right. also the responsiveness to be keeping customers safe. needed by the health care and making the food as delicious as ever. providers. >> bill: the drive through they're still there for you. now you can be there for them. testing from two weeks ago is up while the doors may be closed, and running. how many cities? the kitchens are open for delivery. >> it is running in the major cities. we have increased the testing i appreciate what makes each person unique. 1000% in just the last seven days. that's why i like liberty mutual. and so this is really stemming they get that no two people are alike and customize your car up and adding the testing capability. identifying more people which is insurance so you only pay for what you need. exactly what we expected. almost done. but it shows that only about 10% what do you think? of the people who are being tested tested positive and only about 10% or less who test positive need to go to a
hospital. so this is giving us a good i don't see it. only pay for what you need. baseline of information to know ♪ liberty. liberty. liberty. liberty. ♪ both where we are but more importantly, where we are going. >> bill: to double back on the map they are. those personage who test positive go to the hospital, people want to know stats, less than 10% of the people tested test positive and less than 10% of the people who test positive go to the hospital. >> bill: okay, trying to find out positive/negative test results and these questions come up a lot. 90% test negative and other conditions. let's move beyond that, here is what scott said earlier today former fda said new orleans and dallas, atlanta, miami, those are the places we see more than 1500 cases. he is making the argument it is on its way. do you believe you are active/proactively enough in the state of texas? >> sure. we have been working in the dallas area, for example, for

following and applying at a minimum the guidelines established by the cdc. we will await with the new guidelines will show, and we may be adjusting what we are doing on the ground in texas based on the new guidelines that could come forth next week. >> bill: next week is the consideration. how would that likely apply? not in the city of dallas and the far western part of the state, for example, how do you ♪ see that being set up? >> bill: treating virus >> great point because what the patients in emergency rooms in president and white house was new york city. he describes a situation inside talking about is setting up three tiers. as dyer. he is not on duty at the moment a high risk, medium risk, low risk counties. and so they may be based upon but dr. greg spencer, local data and information as well as medicine presbyterian columbia medical center. consultation with doctors to dr. nice to see you and good afternoon to you. make a determination about whether or not a particular thank you for being here. peel back the curtain and take county is high, medium or low risk. us inside, what is happening? texas, as you are pointing out >> you mentioned it already. urban counties like dallas county would be the situation is, indeed dyer categorized as a higher category. appeared the message i want to there are still many counties in share is not want to panic but the state of texas that have

i just discovered sofi, and i'm an investor with a diversified portfolio. who am i? they make you feel like it's an honor for them to help you out. thanks sofi for helping us get our money right. ♪ >> bill: here rico, and wake spectra president trump to sign to trillion dollar coronavirus relief bill. chris wallace and current fox news sunday, good afternoon to you. >> well, i haven't. i'm at the main headquarters in manhattan. so you get $2 trillion. i get that sense yesterday, chris watching jerome powell the chairman of federal reserve go on national television on a morning show i think for the first time ever to reassure americans, to reassure american businesses that the government has got your back. this is not your fault. we will make sure we see you to
the other side. the other thing he was trying to express, chris, i know you have steven mnuchin over the weekend on your show. he believes the u.s. government with three times the firepower today than it had when you have the collapse of the financial industry of late 2008. and if you listen to him talk, the market has responded in kind, i believe. what is your sense of that today? >> well, yeah, i agree that they will do everything they can in both a physical sense and monetary sense, the federal reserve with all that they can do from liquidity in the markets and the interest rates, congress, and the president to do everything they can do with spending. $2 trillion. remember back in 2009 with the great recession and there was an $800 billion bill. this is almost triple that. and they passed it in a week. so they are going to do everything they can, but, you
know, there is the big difference. before it was just an economic crisis. now this is all being caused by this huge physical threat of the coronavirus. and that has a mind and a timeline of its own. and so we can do, man can do everything they want, but to a certain degree, we are a little bit or a lot at the mercy of the virus. >> bill: a couple of things here. a sound bite from the new york governor andrew cuomo, 10:30 or 11:00 eastern time today. >> this is going to be one of those moments that they will write about and they will talk about. for generations. this is a moment that is going to change this nation. this is a moment that forges character, forges people. changes people. make them stronger, make them weaker, but this is a moment
that will change character. >> bill: i just wanted you to listen to that. i want to frame that with the following fox news polling. approval rating for the president 48%, which is really matches his high going back to february 2017. and then, chris, with regards to the american people and how they are filling with this, but this question out there. with the records of the virus, and the following things, 89% of recession, they have concerns about that. 70% hardship to the families, 74% access to health care services and 70% concerned whether or not they will be able to get tested. the testing skyrocketing the past week you could argue. you put that altogether and how we are the leader is doing, how is the new york governor doing? because millions and millions of people as we saw from the town hall in the rose garden on tuesday are watching and waiting to hear from us. >> yeah, absolutely.
and the answer is people are obviously very concerned about a recession. if you have been thrown out of work, as they say come a recession is when somebody else's thrown out of work. about the pressure is when you are thrown out of work if you are a small businessman. do you keep people on the payroll or not? what about the overhead of the rent that you have to pay to your landlord? we here come obviously with a $2 trillion bill, boatloads of money will be thrown out, but how hard will it be to sign up for it. how soon will you get it? having said all of that, i don't think we can take our eye off of the ball and the ball come of course, is the virus. i know everybody wants to get back to normal, but again as i said the first time, the virus has a timetable of its own. and you can't rush it. and it seems to me the worst thing that could happen would be if we were to loosen the reins
on our social distancing, quarantining or whatever to sin. and to see when we are beginning to pay the price of getting control of this virus and then it comes back even worse. all i can say is trust the signs, trust the public health experts. they are the expert in this thing. you wouldn't ask a tv person how to fly an airplane. don't be asking politicians how to deal with the virus, a pandemic. >> bill: thank you, chris. we will see you sunday, okay? chris wallace, the conversation continues and chris, the secretary steven mnuchin about the virus. the relief package and what comes next. check that out on the local fox nation and the listings for the time. and here on the fox news channel 2:00 eastern coast time on sunday. that is coming up, but in the meantime we are watching this map. the united states right now leading the world with 97,000 confirmed cases.
as i mentioned a moment ago not quite at the 1,000 mark for the recovery. but this is where i start my day every day. and i go here just about every hour on the day. i end my day on this map, just trying to figure out trends across the world. so all's well so my guest, the scholar, john's hopkins university center for health and security. doctor, thank you for coming back here today. what do you see in these numbers in these trends today, doctor? >> looking at the united states sell not 100% and we have
