Thursday on the NewsHour, new jobs numbers emphasize the depths of the pandemic’s economic damage. Plus: What happens to Americans struggling to pay for housing, complications around accessing food stamps, viewer questions about the economic crisis, Wyoming Sen. John Barrasso on COVID-19, the World Health Organization under fire and a Brief But Spectacular take on why we’re never really alone.
Correction: When discussing President Trump’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic during the interview with Sen. Barrasso, Judy Woodruff mistakenly said 15 Americans had died of the disease in late February. She meant that there were 15 confirmed U.S. cases of the disease then. We regret the error.
