The U.S. government is in active talks with Facebook, Google and a wide array of tech companies and health experts about how they can use data gleaned from Americansâ phones to combat the novel coronavirus, including tracking whether people are keeping one another at safe distances to stem the outbreak.
A video has emerged of Trump talking about cutting the U.S. pandemic response team in 2018 — days after claiming that he knew nothing about the disbanded White House unit. https://t.co/PMZc6p4wKD

My God… Trump ends his press conference by saying no offer was made to the U.S. to have the WHO-certified test, says any such news of that is fake, and then adds that the WHO test — the GOLD STANDARD TEST FOR COVID19 is a "bad test." This is straight-up gaslighting propaganda.
