With U.S. deaths from the coronavirus pandemic nearing the grim milestone of 100,000, there is still very little guidance and leadership coming from Trump administration officials. Dr. Kavita Patel reacts. Aired on 05/26/2020.
There's been a dramatic drop in the number of people being seen by cancer specialists during the pandemic.

NHS England figures show a big fall in cancer referrals by GPs in April this year - down by 60% compared to 2019. Urgent breast cancer referrals saw an even larger drop - down by 78%.

Cancer charities are worried that people who have symptoms are too frightened to seek help.

Meanwhile the government has been accused of withholding publication of a report containing measures to protect ethnic minority groups from catching coronavirus. It follows a review by Public Health England which confirmed that people from black, Asian and minority backgrounds were dying at disproportionately high rates.

A senior health official has told the BBC a second report containing recommendations to protect BAME communities has been drawn up but not released.

Sophie Raworth presents BBC News at Ten reports from Health Correspondent Lauren Moss and Community Affairs Correspondent Rianna Croxford.
The Senate is continuing to hold votes to confirm President Trump's judicial nominations during the coronavirus pandemic. CBS News political reporter Melissa Quinn joined CBSN with more.
While Americans are staying at home because of the coronavirus, home may not be safe for many children. Big concerns include limited access to safe spaces and to trusted adults who can speak up on behalf of kids, the clinical program manager for the Childhelp National Child Abuse Hotline tells NBC News' Kate Snow.
