Dr. Gupta: 'We Don't Have Enough Swabs In This Country'

Description:

WATCH: In order to conduct a COVID-19 test swabs are essential, and Dr. Vin Gupta says the U.S. does not have enough: "We don't talk about this enough … we don't have enough swabs in this country." Aired on 04/09/2020


During a press conference, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo responds to President Trump's claim of having "total authority" on when to reopen the economy. Aired on 4/14/2020.
CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta explains how difficult it will be to mitigate spread of the coronavirus in restaurants, one of the businesses set to reopen following governors relaxing orders in some Southern states.
A gradual lifting of borders has been proposed by the EU's executive in an attempt to kick-start a tourist industry hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic.

"Our message is we will have a tourist season this summer," said economic affairs commissioner Paolo Gentiloni, "even if it's with security measures and limitations."

Borders closed across the EU, including the border-free Schengen zone.

But states are starting to reopen them.

Austria and Germany have become the latest EU countries to agree to remove travel restrictions.

From Friday there will be random checks at border crossings and then on 15 June free movement should resume. "We want to make people's everyday lives easier and take another step towards more normality," said Chancellor Sebastian Kurz.

UK travellers have already been warned not to expect "lavish" international holidays, with plans for a 14-day quarantine on air arrivals. But travel without quarantine will be possible to France.
