Transcript for Latest updates on COVID-19: June 3, 2020

Some major developments we’re tracking right now — more than 9300 arrests in protests since the death one week ago Monday of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police. As the covid-19 crisis marches on with 6.3 million cases around the world, nearly 2 million confirmed cases here in the United States. Here with me now is ABC chief medical correspondent Dr. Jen Ashton. And Dr. Jen, we’re facing multiple crises right now. We have obviously social protests, covid-19, possible hurricanes already on a sea storm here, and then you say that there are two other infectious disease outbreaks potentially going on in the world.

Put this into medical and scientific perspective here, covid-19 is not only the medical and scientific concern right now, it’s not only the pathogen causing problems. In medicine and science we can’t sugar coat the news. It’s about facts and not fear. Making people aware is important. Measles and ebola really are affecting children disproportionately.
