RUSH EXCERPT:

HAYES: “Good evening from New York. I’m Chris Hayes. In sheer numbers, the Coronavirus outbreak is worse than it has ever been. Before this week, New York was the only state to ever report more than 5,000 new cases of Coronavirus in a single day. But now Texas, California and Florida have all crossed that threshold on multiple days. Just today Florida nearly doubled it, reporting almost 9,0 0 new cases. In total, we have set another single day record in the U.S. For new cases surpassing 40,000 for the first time. We have not seen these kinds of numbers since April when of course the whole country was shut down. And for those weeks when we were shut down, night in and night out on this program and all over the Internet and in the media, epidemiologists and public health officials and local officials and journalists all said the same thing. The point of the shut down was to buy time, to put into place the capacity so that we could open up safely.“
