Is Easter A Realistic Goal?

Today, Dom Giordano led off the show by talking about developments surrounding the Coronavirus. Yesterday, during a Fox News Town Hall, President Trump said that he hopes to have the economy running by Easter. This set off a firestorm in media, with leftist media outlets calling him too optimistic. Dom takes umbrage with the reaction, playing back a clip from Dr. Fauci that lays out that it's not bad to be 'aspirational.' Also, the drug being pushed by the President as a potential cause, Chloroquine, has come in the sights of know-nothing late night hosts.


PA Department of Community and Economic Development Sec. Dennis Davin

Pennsylvania's Secretary of the Department of Community and Economic Development, Dennis Davin, joins the Dom Giordano Program to discuss the state's small business waiver program in response to the Coronavirus pandemic. Davin explains the process and tells Dom the numbers of waivers the state has received so far. Dom presses Sec. Davin on how the office decides which businesses are 'essential,' and tries to get an answer as to why the granted waivers are kept private. The Secretary, unable to give an answer to the lack of transparency, pivots and explains that they're doing the best they can do for the majority of business owners in the estate.


Dr. Harvey Rubin on the Effect of Coronavirus in the Medical Community

Dom Giordano talks with Dr. Harvey Rubin about PPEs, ventilators, and hospital sewage. Rubin talks about making sure that there is testing equipment, though he is sure the medical community will not run out of human resources. Rubin talks about the importance of keeping medical professionals out of harm's way as the pandemic continues. Rubin talks about the preservation of protective equipment and tells Dom what he should talk with the head of the CDC about. Plus, Rubin explains the difference between isolation and quarantine.
