absolutely not giving up. you know, i am not ready to throw in the towel and there are still things that we can do to get through this until we either have better therapeutics or a vaccine. i'll go back to something we've talked about since february or march which is testing. there needs to be a breakthrough in testing to make it very easy. something preferably saliva based where you don't have to poke someone several times per day. test willing allow us to know where we need to focus our energies the most. it will allow us to do that tracing we need to do so aggressively. we need to recruit a contact tracing corp. think of census takers. you don't need to be a doctor to do contact tracing. the earlier we start, the quicker this will be over. if we did all of those things now, we still have an opportunity to control the virus and reduce it greatly. >> and what about masks? we saw yesterday a lot of top republicans, mitch mcconnell,
