Friday on the NewsHour, the U.S. death toll from the novel coronavirus pandemic hits 50,000, but some states begin to lift restrictions. Plus: Medical facts vs. fiction, an ICU nurse shares his fears, Sen. Amy Klobuchar on responding to crisis, Navajo Nation’s virus vulnerability, Mark Shields and David Brooks on the week’s news and remembering some of those lost to COVID-19.
Correction: Judy Woodruff misspoke during the interview with Sen. Amy Klobuchar and referred to Stacey Abrams as former lieutenant governor in the state of Georgia. That is incorrect. Abrams was a candidate for governor in that state. We regret the error.
