From AOC to Tucker Carlson: EXPLAIN THIS OR RESIGN
2/27: 'There's one thing that I can tell you about this: It is more aggressive in its transmission than anything that we've seen, more akin to the 1918 pandemic.' Burr, chair, Intelligence Committee, told Tar Heel Circle in secret recording obtained by NPR reporter Tim Mak, warning about sending employees to Europe for trips that could be handled remotely. 'You look at your employees and judge whether the trip they're making to Europe is essential or whether it can be done on video conference. Why risk it?' Burr said 15 days before Trump issued European travel ban and 13 days before State Department's issuing travel 'guidance.'
Burr's assessment of disruptions predated school closures in his state by 16 days. 'There will be times that NC communities have transmission rates where they say, let's close schools for two weeks, everybody stay home.'
