What A Day - March 16, 2020 - 21:13

Covid-19 continues to upend events, entire healthcare systems, and economies worldwide. We discuss the latest updates, including a new CDC recommendation on gatherings of 50 people or more and a bill working its way through congress that would help workers who’s jobs have been affected by the pandemic. Sunday brought us the first one-on-one debate between former VP Joe Biden and Senator Bernie Sanders. The two candidates were asked about everything from their hand hygiene to their prior, extensive voting records. And in headlines: Bill Gates steps away from Microsoft, Disney gives us Babu Frik early, and Israeli opposition leader Benny Gantz wins a thin majority in Israel.
