Dismissed U.S. carrier captain gets hero's ovation from crew

Capt. Brett Crozier gets hero's sendoff from crewThe captain of a U.S. aircraft carrier relieved of his command after seeking stronger measures in response to a coronavirus outbreak aboard his ship was given a hero’s ovation by his crew when he left the vessel, video posted on Twitter showed.

With many Americans under orders to stay at home, work continues as usual for the United States Postal Service, which has been deemed an "essential" business.

But mail carriers are concerned that their current working conditions have left them as sitting ducks during the coronavirus pandemic.

They also pointed to post offices and trucks are not being kept clean, and that they have yet to receive protective gear like face masks or gloves.


Jared Kushner makes coronavirus briefing appearance, draws backlash for 'our stockpile' comment

jared Kushner talks about 'our stockpile'White House senior advisor Jared Kushner made a rare appearance during Thursday's coronavirus task force briefing, an appearance that drew backlash when he referred to the national stockpile of medical supplies as "our stockpile" and not one belonging to states.

Kushner, the president's son-in-law who doesn't often make public appearances, says he has been serving on the coronavirus task force at the direction of Vice President Mike Pence.

When asked about data showing states' need for equipment, Kushner said, "The notion of the federal stockpile is that it's supposed to be our stockpile. It's not supposed to be states' stockpiles that they then use."

Coronavirus bill allows DeVos to waive parts of federal special education law: NYT

Betsy DeVos

The coronavirus stimulus bill signed by President Trump last week permits Education Secretary Betsy DeVos to waive parts of the federal special education law, The New York Times reported Thursday.

The $2.2 trillion bill allows the secretary to waive some special education rules as schools across the country struggle to continue education remotely for more than 55 million children during the coronavirus pandemic.

The secretary has 30 days to ask Congress for the authority to waive the law.

Almost 7 million children who traditionally receive specialized education are now learning from home, which makes managing their individualized programs more difficult. Under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, schools teaching students with special needs are required to give them a comparable education to their peers.

Trump says stockpile is almost gone

Donald Trump has admitted the US government’s emergency stockpile of protective equipment is nearly exhausted because of the extraordinary demands of the coronavirus pandemic.

The shortage was first reported by the Washington Post, which said the supply of respirator masks, gloves and other medical supplies was running low.

Trump, who has been criticised for a lack of central planning, confirmed on Wednesday: “It is, because we’re sending it directly to hospitals. We don’t want it to come to the stockpile because then we have to take it, after it arrives, and bring it to various states and hospitals.”

Cuomo said he did not think the federal government “is in a position to provide ventilators” across the US to the extent that they are going to be needed in the coming days and weeks.

As coronavirus cases continue to rise, New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio asked New Yorkers to wear a homemade face covering when they go outside to prevent the spread of the virus.

New Yorkers are right to be Skeptical of samaritan's hospital in Central Partk

If New York City wasn’t under a strict stay-at-home order right now, protesters might be marching along Central Park. That’s where an evangelical Christian organization called Samaritan’s Purse is preparing to open a makeshift COVID-19 ward. The 60-bed emergency field hospital is composed largely of tarp-wrapped tents and will function as a respiratory unit servicing overflow patients from Mount Sinai Hospital.

Some New York residents have criticized Samaritan’s Purse’s presence, citing their spotty record in the field and expressing fears that the conservative religious group’s beliefs could even open the door to substandard care or discrimination. City Mayor Bill de Blasio admitted he was “very concerned” about the operation and was sending people from his office to monitor Samaritan’s Purse.
