Coronavirus: The next 30 days

Episode Notes

The White House is warning that the next 30 days will be crucial in the fight against the coronavirus — and that even if the current social distancing guidelines are followed, deaths could reach 240,000. But President Trump still hasn't issued a nationwide 'shelter in place' order. POLITICO's Renuka Rayasam explains why. Plus, the UN is urging a global response. And the CDC says 25 percent of infected people might not show symptoms.
