Trump asks what the '19' in COVID-19 stands for

Referring to the coronavirus as the 'kung flu' again, which many consider racist, U.S. President Donald Trump in Phoenix, Arizona on Tuesday said he couldn't figure out what the '19' in COVID-19 stood for.

The CDC says the '19' signifies the coronavirus disease of 2019.

"I said, 'What's the 19?'

COVID-19.

Some people can't explain what the 19.

COVID-19.

I said, 'that's an odd name'," Trump told young supporters in Phoenix.

"I've never seen anything like it." There are more that 2.3 million cases and over 120,000 fatalities in the United States, according to a Reuters tally on Tuesday.

CDC: We Won't Revise School Opening Guidelines... Yet

The CDC won’t revise its guidelines for schools during the coronavirus pandemic. This is despite the president’s depraved threats of retribution if they don’t fully return to in-person classes. Additional “reference documents” will allegedly be released to make the rules more “practical.” Officials in the administration, not to mention the president himself, keep contradicting each other. The exact plan is unknown and generating confusion just weeks before the start of the fall semester.
