Nightside with Dan Rea - Rundown for April 17, 2020


The Great Re-Start! President Trump has unveiled his three-phase plan to reopen the U.S. economy, to mixed reviews. Under the first phase restaurants, movie theaters and large sporting venues would be appropriate to reopen under certain conditions, while schools, day care centers and bars would not. The President says it is "implementable on a statewide or county-by-county basis" at the discretion of each state's governor. While hailed by money as a reasonable blueprint for a return to normalcy, former Vice-President Biden says the President punted. Do you think the plan is a good one?

Anti-Malaria Drugs and COVID-19. The former Director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, Dr. Lee Vliet, joins Dan to discuss how hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine (anti-malaria drugs) are being utilized to combat COVID-19. This after Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) forwarded a letter to President Trump with thousands of signatures supporting the right to use the drugs on virus patients.
