March 12, 2020 | From FOX News and IFA Staff
The Vice President appeared on multiple “morning shows” today to emphasize parts of the President’s message, and share information from the coronavirus taskforce. It is comforting to know that our leaders–our PRAYING leaders–are approaching this with a balance of caution, pro-activity, and calm. Below is a transcript clip from Vice President Pence’s appearance on FOX and Friends this morning. Continue to pray for him and his team as well as the President as they further manage this situation.
Send the Vice President a message of support and that you are praying! It’s easy, just click and follow the steps:
The President has called this a whole-of-government approach, but he has also called this is a whole-of-America approach.
“The President, you know, he said this was a whole-of-government approach but he also said this is a whole-of-America approach. So he’s brought in business leaders from nursing homes; yesterday, banking; hospitals, and the rest. But one of the things we did that’s most important on testing was the President brought in the leaders of the top commercial laboratories in the country who, as we speak, have already approved a test that is being spun up. It’s being sent out to market. Quest, LabCorp, the largest commercial laboratories in the country, are working very closely with our administration. We’re clearing the red tape out of the way. That’s going to be the way that, in the days ahead, we’re going to — we’re going to have broad-based testing available all across the country.”
We are working together to contain the spread of the coronavirus. And we will get through this.
“Our goal, as the coronavirus spreads in this country — and the vast majority who would contract it will have flu-like symptoms and recover. Our goal nonetheless is to hold down that overall number as much as possible. And we will do that with the continuing cooperation of American families, schools, businesses, and states. And that’s the vision President Trump has. All of us working together will get through this.”
We are focusing on supporting efforts at the state and local level in Washington State, and in California. CDC issued strong guidelines for those communities about public activities, large gatherings and at schools. We will continue simply to follow the data on this.
“Make no mistake about it: We are also focusing on supporting efforts at the state and local level in California, in Washington State, and in California. CDC issued very strong guidelines for those communities about public activities, large gatherings, schools. And we’ll continue simply to follow the data on this and make strong recommendations where we have what’s known as “community spread. But for every American, right now, as the President said last night, it’s a good time to use common sense. Wash your hands often. Clean, you know, often-used surfaces. All that information is available at Coronavirus.gov. So we’re going to try and mitigate the spread in this country but also prevent, through the President’s decisive action last night, people from bringing the coronavirus into the United States any further from Europe.”
We are encouraging best practices for every American. We are focusing on communities where we have community spread.
“I want to say to your viewers, just as the President said last night, the risk to the average American of contracting the coronavirus remains low, but we do know that seniors with serious underlying chronic health conditions are particularly vulnerable to very serious outcomes. And so we’re encouraging best practices for every American. We’re focusing on communities where we have community spread.”
Those with a family member who is a senior citizen should support them in engaging in good hygiene and good health practices.
“For any American that’s watching today that has a family member or a loved one who’s a senior citizen with a serious underlying health condition, this is a very good time to help and to support them to be able to avoid public places, and everyone around them to engage in good hygiene and good practices to protect those that are most vulnerable.”
