5:04 pm
a visit to walter reed medical center despite the trump administration insisting that the show will go on there are now serious concerns being raised among g.o.p. officials about whether the republican national convention will go on to a scheduled in august in jacksonville or whether or not it will shift to an entirely virtual event instead for our t.v. john honey. and the mayor of new york has banned large scale public events for 3 months citing the high risk of spreading kobe it only then to allow black lives matter rallies to take place here's artie's kara moppin with that conflicting message as new york city works to slow the spread of coded 19 in the hopes of soon fully reopening mayor bill de blasio has banned all large public gatherings except for black lives matter protests we understand at this moment of history people are talking about the need for historic changes this is
5:05 pm
a historic moment of change we have to respect that big crowds at any protest you would think would be a perfect recipe for spreading coded 19 hour wherever mainstream media would have you believe otherwise they say the protests are not causing the spread of the coronavirus whereas trump rallies they seem to indicate do massive protests in new york city and around the country some doctors warn a spike in coronavirus cases could follow but that didn't really happen but new study suggests that recent black lives matter protesters have not led or the protests themselves have not led to a spike in new cases health officials warned against their rally but president trump said we have to move on this is all a little bit odd it's unclear why the virus would seem to have a political bias favoring some big gatherings over others mayor de blasio is efforts to sit on both sides of the fence accommodating those afraid of code 19 by implementing. harsh measures on the one hand while letting black lives matter do
