RUSH EXCERPT:

PENCE: “And the — it is possible. The reality that Dr. Fauci and others have explained to me since I took on the duties a few days ago is that for most people who contract the coronavirus, they will recover. They will deal with the respiratory illness and we will get them treatment. But for the people who have other conditions that would militate towards a worse outcome, we could have more, we could have more sad news, but the American people should know that the risks for the average American remains low. So they can be confident and after three days leading the president’s effort on the coronavirus, I am more confident than ever that we are bringing a whole of government approach, and the president has directed the full resources of the federal government and in talking to governors around the country, and particularly in states where we have brought people back home.”
