    Trump uses Defense Production Act to require GM to make ventilators

    The president turned his ire on the automaker earlier Friday, singling out CEO Mary Barra for criticism.

    Woman’s Sorority Sisters Surprise Her With Song And Prayer While She’s Quarantined Doing Chemo

    In the midst of this quarantine craziness, my mom’s linesisters found a way to show their support, make her smile and keep her fighting! She has been having a rough couple of days – the side effects from her medication are kicking in, plus the fluid that has been forming around her heart and lungs have made it hard for her to breathe. Her linesisters had the most beautiful idea to come over and sing to her to lift her spirits – and of course they maintained social distancing… because Coronavirus.

THANK YOU

    Banner Health confirmed the man’s death and the wife’s critical treatment in a statement, in which they warned others against taking the drug to self-medicate from the disease, or as an attempt to try and prevent contracting the virus. During his daily White House briefings and in subsequent tweets, President Trump has promoted chloroquine as a possible “game-changer” for treating Covid-19, while health officials warn it is too premature to draw any connection to the drug’s effectiveness in treating the coronavirus.
