  1. South Korea's pharmaceutical company has treatment medicine which has been treated before and no side effect. It showed a good treatment for coronavirus infected patients. Now they're going to use this medicine on massive human trial next week. If it works, SK will save lives for the world ASAP.

  2. It sure didn't bother all these countries when they passed pro-abortion laws and have since slaughtered countless innocent little babies, guess little babies didn't have time to get on the news to complain about it? Well I got news for ya, their spirits complained plenty! God sees abortion as cold blooded murder of the innocent! The bible says the innocent blood shed upon the earth cries up to God for vengeance. Could it be God has lifted his protection from us and allowed satan to attack us directly and viciously, just as the world has done unto his children? We have spit into Gods face in our selfish rebellion and disobeyed his law! Repent, while you're still alive, for God shall not be mocked by anyone!

  3. To all voters: first thing to look in to the future is to kick that clown out of the white house in the next election. And remember that stupidity kills. Bigotry kills. Populism kills.

  4. I hate to disagree but this is just the greatest challenge right now on this planet, in reality this is just the pregame for climate change and our need to change very quickly in multiple ways.

    That being said, God be with everyone sick and their families. Know that if you are taken to the hospital you aren't dying alone, and we will never forget those we lose. Stay positive, get outside and walk if you can, and remember you're not alone. We will get through this, we just need to come together…

  5. Did China’s Xi Jinping cover up the virus to make the world sick and reliant on Chinese medical supplies?

    As the days tick on, the answer seems to be yes. Three lost weeks thanks to Xi, not Trump.

  6. Brokaw was born in 1940 ad should have SOME memories of the deprivation and suffering in WWII…!!!
    This hardly compares!!! Even with 200,000 deaths that is still less than half the number of American GI's who were killed and pales to the millions who would wounded!!!

  7. I've watched Tom Brokaw for years, Thank you for your wisdom! You're right this is the Biggest Historical event so far!!

  8. But John, Trump has the best brain. He gets this pandemic better than anyone. His uncle was a really smart scientist. (sarcasm)

  9. Can anyone explain me why americans need to say sevenhondred million times each day how wonderfull they are and how wonderfull their country is? Like george carlin said;" the american dream…you need to be asleep to believe it"

  10. 'Coronavirus Is Our Greatest Challenge'……. i believe the greatest challenge is still Trump being POTUS. His inability to lead is acting like a force multiplier for COVID-19.

  11. CUT THE BULLSHIET NEWS!!! FIRST YOU TELL AMERICANS TO NOT USE MASKS..!!! NOW YOU TELL US WEAR MASKS?!! WTF ARE YOU INSANE? LOOK AROUND OTHER NATIONS SUCH AS KOREA EVEN CHINA! THEY ALL WEAR MAKS! KOREAN GOVERNMENT EVEN ISSUES OUT FREE MASKS TO THEIR PEOPLE! IF WE WORE MASKS FROM THE START WITHOUT ALL THIS BS WE WOULD HAVE BEEN AT A MUCH BETTER PLACE AND SAVE LIVES! IF THE REASON FOR THE BULLSHIET LIE ABOUT MASKS FOR ONLY FOR SICK PPL WAS BECAUSE OF THE SHORTAGE FOR THE HEALTHCARE WORKERS THEN WHY NOT ADVISE PPL TO WEAR IT! IF N95 IS NOT AVAILABLE AT LEAST TO WEAR THEIR OWN CLOTH MASKS!!!! THE LEADERSHIP FROM TRUMP TO STATE LVL GOVERNANCE IS PATHETIC! LOOK AT OUR HEALTHCARE SYSTEM TODAY NOT TO MENTION HAVING NO SUPPLIES FOR THE FRONTLINE HEALTHCARE WORKERS!

  12. Privatization is part of the problem even if it's bill gates. You need a federal government functioning can't you see that. It's obvious.

  13. Yes Tom Brakow you were a great Journalist this is unbelievable what happened to our GOVERNMENT and, Society we were not Govnerned Correctly!!!!!

  14. ONLY LIBERALS SEE THE COUNTRY COMING TOGETHER AS A SCARY AND BAD THING….. LOL. LISTEN I DONT DISLIKE LIBERALS, I JUST FEEL SO SORRY YOU GUYS CHOOSE TO LIVE IN YOUR HEADS, WHERE 2 DOGS PLAYING LOOKS LIKE A DOG FIGHT IN VICKS BACKYARD HAHA. DOES ANYONE NOT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THE HUMAN MIND…. OR HOW IT WORKS. IF YOU SEE SOMETHING AS SO BAD AND BELIEVE IT LONG ENOUGH. YOUR MIND MORPHS TO PROTECT YOU FROM YOURSELF. SO, IN TERMS THE MIND IS VERY CAPABLE OF TWISTING SOMETHING SO INNOCENT AND BELIEVE YOU SAW DEATH. ( MINDS CAN PLAY TRICKS) .
    FEEDING IT FEAR FROM TV, MOVIES AND TECHNOLOGY. YOUR MIND IS NOW IN THOSE DARK PLACES…..WAKE UP THIS DOES NOT ONLY HAPPEN TO DRUG ADDICTS AND MENTALLY ILL. ITS ACTUALLY WORSE CAUSE YOUR NOT DOING HARMFUL BEHAVIOR YOU BELIEVE ITS OKAY OR HAS TO BE RIGHT. THE ONLY ONE YOUR HURTING IS YOU.

  15. HERE I GOT ONE…. LETS GET REAL LIBERALS ( FOOD FOR THOUGHT )

    DO YOU GUYS STILL BELIEVE IN EQUALITY FOR ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS?? MAYBE TRUMP SHOULD GO ON TV TONIGHT AND SAY AMERICANS WE CAN ONLY GIVE YOU $800 CAUSE YOU NEED TO SHARE WITH THOSE IN WHOM YOU FIGHT FOR TO BE HERE. DONT TALK ABOUT RIGHTEOUS YOU PIGS, THE RIGHT THING WOULD BE TO TAKE LESS MONEY AND MAKE SURE THEY GET HELP TO. SINCE, YOU GUYS FOUGHT AND LET THEM IN AND SAID THERE HUMAN. SO THEYVE BE LIVING HERE AND NOW WHAT ?? GO UNDER CAUSE YALL LIBERALS CAN ONLY THINK OF YOURSELVES RIGHT NOW…..

    YOU GUYS SAY WHAT EVER TO LOOK GOOD BUT DEEP DOWN YOU WOULD NEVER TRADE LIVES WITH THEM OR EVEN HELP THEM IN TIMES LIKE NOW. THATS RIGHTEOUS CAUSE THERE GONNA SUFFER CAUSE THEYVE HAD IT A CERTAIN WAY FOR A LONG TIME TOO NOW….Yeah trump we should share the money…

    You guys are most selfish and in DENIAL. They SHOULDN'T BE not cause we don't like who they are but EXACTLY NOW, TIMES LIKE NOW. MONEY GOING TO THEM STRAINING THE SYSTEM. IF WE DIDNT HAVE TO CARE FOR ILLEGALS ( NOT ALL IMMIGRANTS SO YOU DONT TRY AND TWIST IT). YALL COULD HAVE PROBABLY HAD DOUBLE OR WAY MORE FINANCIAL SUPPORT. ITS NOT LONGER LOVE AND PEACE, ITS RADICAL AND WHEN IT COMES DOWN TO YOU OR THEM THEYLL THROW YOU UNDER THE BUS. 🙂 LIBERALS THE WORLD ISNT A BAD PLACE. JUST LOOK IN THE MIRROR AND ASK YOURSELVES THE TOUGH QUESTIONS.

  16. Bill Gates was asked by Trump to be on his team. He declined saying he could use his time better in the private sector. Smack. Would they have listened to him three years ago? Yeah…sure.

  17. 'We’re going to win so much, you’re going to be so sick and tired of winning' <–highest # of bodybags isn't winning idiot

  18. These crisis were used to install pro-corporate policies like bailout, budget increase for MIC and newly created dept..

  19. WTF is this lunatic talking about ? Governments knew this pandemic could happen. They just didn't care. Because they care about they donnors not the population.

  20. wow the news is really responsible for over blowing something that isn't going to have to be this big you're really over doing what you need to do for the people this is very irresponsible by the media this station should be ashamed of themselves

  21. we need open discussion on end of life treatments, uses of morphine, tell it like it is. Facts dispel some level of fear. Death , our thinking stops when we even just say the word. If you've been by the side of someone when they took their last breath, when the heart monitor flatlined, when you are told the person is in "final stages", then you have learned. We need media coverage on death. This is what I've been thinking the last couple of days.

  22. We can create that agency with Bill and Melinda Gates once Trump is out of office. Trump would never allow this and if he did, he would never allow them to publish their findings if in anyway it looked bad on him.

  23. If this pandemic is the greatest challenge Brokaw has ever seen, obviously he has been presenting news with his eyes closed and his heart in his pocket. Balancing American style democracy with capitalism and corporate creed is the greatest challenge facing the US. American corporation has outsourced so much of its needed products that it hardly manufactures any of the products needed at this moment to save lives. Placing sanctions on countries we can no longer control or compete with on a global level is a most challenging habit. But most challenging, the US must stop seeing all obstacles within the context of ‘an enemy or war’. COVID-19 is not an enemy, it has always been here, it will be here when we depart, we are not at war. We are confronted with a pathogen, and we are ill equipped to deal with it on a national level. As a nation divided (we call it diversity) with are left with too many choices so we elect poor leadership that only keeps us bickering and squabbling over petty ideologies that keep us as primitive as Neanderthal and as dormant as a virus before we awaken it. I guess after this pandemic is finally over, we can go back to business as usual, and American will be great again- free from the greatest challenge.

  24. We have seen how others countries have done mass disinfections of their streets and mostly in Asia. I am not talking now, but back at the beginning of the century. We failed to prepare for this as we only saw at at distance occur in other countries.This needs to at home and all the way up to the presidency. From the time Bill Clinton was president, the greatest threat after the fall of the Iron Curtain was a major terrorist attack (9/11) and a pandemic. Now, our way of life will forever change and it starts with our behavior and mindset.

  25. we need this guy https://www.msnbc.com/katy-tur/watch/commander-of-joint-task-force-katrina-it-s-time-for-fema-to-hand-some-of-this-mission-off-to-the-dod-81606725656

  26. Doesn't MSNBC stand for Microsoft-NBC anyway? I think Bill Gates may have started MSNBC. Isn't Bill Gates for depopulation or Eugenics or something like that? So why doesn't he transparently come out and talk about what he really believes in? Does he have to deal personally with deaths around him everywhere or does Trump and the American Citizens and I'm migrants you talk about that just got some visas to work in our farm fields and factory's production of those medical supplies? How much are you can getting paid to promote Bill Gates?

  27. Why didn't Obama replenish the ventilators that got depleted during the course 2009 H1N1 after 2 congressmen suggested that he get on it right away, but he never did to this day? Why did China send defective ventilators to Australia and other countries that had to return to them?

  28. Sounds like his idea is the start of a new world order. It can't be international because that leads to influence under one entity across the world. That's dangerous in so many ways for so many people. We do need experts to guide nations but not under one organization. Basically what the WHO is supposed to do.

  29. I though global warming was our biggest challenge, gun control, student debt, gender equality.. I say this in jest as 6 months ago 99% of the public would not have even ranked this as in their top 10 concerns..

  30. Start investing in hearing aids… because that stupid bass sound at the traffic light is soooooooooooooooooooo annoying… and invest in masks.(3M) .. panic creates wealth.

  31. Tom Brokaw was once engaged to the Queen Potato. Alas, they couldn't marry, as he was but a common tater.

  32. I wish this station had the balls to report on a real story like this: https://www.facebook.com/DrRobertJRowen/posts/1243042075893791?__tn__=-R But it's NEVER going to happen because they see the medical "experts" as gods. Hello, this actually WORKS and works quickly. But no, forget it. Morons one and all. Mainstream Pharma has ZERO to help. Sad. Go ahead and die I guess?

  33. Trump just fired IG… hmmmm I wonder if it has anything to do with manslaughter? He knew January 2017 dismissed because he didn’t care! Intentional negligence and now thousands of innocent Americans are dead including our VETERANS! Indefensible! https://www.politico.com/news/2020/03/16/trump-inauguration-warning-scenario-pandemic-132797. TRUTH TO POWER!

  34. NO, because this is NOT a private problem. It is PUBLIC problem and the proper job of government. Too bad the GOT has destroyed the American government. GOT = Gang Of Trump. There is NO GOP now.

  35. .

    WHY THE VIRUS IS SPREADING SO FAST? IS IT PERSISTENT IN THE AIR?

    We know that the virus is spread by people that are infected via their
    respiratory droplets. These droplets can land around themselves if they cough
    or sneeze, or on people around them nearby. 
    The virus can stick to their hands if they touch the fluids in their
    noses or mouth and then be spread to any surface they touch.  Research has shown that the virus can stay
    active on stainless steel and plastic surfaces for about 48 hours or longer, and
    on paper and clothing for about 24 hours [1].

    To minimize that spread we have told the infected to wear masks so the
    viruses in their respiratory droplets are trapped on the mask and do not fly
    out far from themselves. This countermeasure is the mask containment of the
    virus.  We have told people to maintain
    social distance of 6 feet or about 2 meters [2]so when the infected talk and
    breathe without a mask, his/her breath droplets does not reach others around
    them, yet the virus continue to spread very fast, the number of new cases keep
    on doubling almost every 3 days. 

    So, one question comes to mind “Is the virus spreading in another way
    that we have not yet considered? And the answer is more likely, yes.  The virus is spreading through the air and at
    distances more than 6 feet, perhaps as far as 15-30 feet or longer, especially
    when the infected are not wearing masks.

    Let me explain, if the virus remains active on surfaces for as long as
    48 hours, then the virus will stay active for as long as it is protected and cocooned
    in a respiratory droplet that came out of the infected.  When we exhale respiratory droplets near a glass,
    we fog the glass. In winter we can make fog when we breathe.  When we drive in fog one thing you notice is
    that mist does not fall to the ground, it stays floating in the air. Similarly,
    exhale air droplets stays in the air for long time; you do not see them because
    they are not dense enough to fog. The smaller the droplets the buoyant they are,
    they float.  If there is airflow or wind,
    the droplets can travel a long way.  We
    do not know well the electrical polarity of the virus, but it could be that the
    viruses packed inside a water droplet are holding the droplet intact through
    surface tension and the virus owns electrical polarity until that droplet
    touches a surface, breaking and unloading the viruses, like tiny Trojan horses.

    Because these droplets are persistent in the air, people walking by will
    breathe in them; some of the droplets will land on their faces, mouth, eyes,
    ears, contributing to a more extensive spread of covid19.  The more infected that do not adhere to the
    use of masks will be contributing to higher density of the virus in the air. 

    Let me put things in perspective.  The radius of a coronavirus, from electron
    micrographs [3], is of the order of 0.0000375 mm, the radius of a pin head is
    about 0.75 mm. You can pack a layer of 397 million corona viruses on a pinhead.
    Now an exhaled droplet has a radius of the order of 5 micrometers or 0.005 mm,
    which is about the size of a fog droplet. In this droplet, that floats and
    persists in the air, moves around to distances longer than 2 meter by airflow
    or wind, can carry as much as 2.3 million corona viruses.  Therefore, the virus is hitching rides to vast
    distances by airflow and wind, spreading itself to many more people and
    surfaces other than the surfaces near the infected.

    I propose a simple experiment for the NIH, the CDC and the WHO to
    perform immediately, and it is as follows: 
    place an infected person to read a book out loud at the center of a 30
    feet (10 m) wide room for 30 minutes. 
    Place some fans to create airflow and simulate wind near the person,
    this will carry his/her exhaled droplets around the room. After 30 minutes take
    sample swabs on the walls, floor, and ceiling and test for the virus.  I am sure the virus will be found on all
    surfaces.  If healthy people stand near
    the walls of the room, they would be breathing in virus particles.  Perhaps the dose is low; nevertheless they
    are being exposed, increasing the transmission of covid19.

    A similar experiment was performed by Jamie Hymeman and Adam Savage in
    an episode of Mythbusters on June 5,2010, titled “The Art of sneeze”, in which they
    found that droplets from a sneeze can travel as far as 17 feet (5.2 m). In
    another episode called Contamination, May 28, 2012, using a florescent dye, a
    person with a running nose contaminates everyone in a party of six, by simply
    serving food, drinking and being cordial. Coronarvirus infected droplets should
    be no different. These episodes are searchable in YuouTube.  

    How can we prevent the spread of the virus if it is persistent in the
    air?  Everybody mask up, 100% of the
    population must wear a mask, a handkerchief, a scarf,  or whatever to minimized exhale droplets in
    the air. The point is we need to hold the droplets on the mask.  We all have to act as if we are all infected.
    Eventually we all are going to get infected, but this mandatory action will
    reduce the number of infected right away. 
    The infection will continue to spread, but it will be gradual.  Our hospitals will be able to handle the sick,
    and many lives will be saved.

    I know some people feel weir wearing a mask in public; they think they
    look sick or not cool. But we have to be creative; we can fashion our own mask out
    of our coolest looking handkerchief or bandana. 
    The fashion industry should begin production of masks using dense
    materials. We need to reduce those exhale droplets directly into the air.   

    I was a Nuclear Medical Science Officer with the US Army Public Health
    Command and I did studies on the health effects of airborne depleted uranium particulates.  I have sent this analysis to the Public
    Health Command, the NIH and the WHO.  I
    hope they take note of it. The use of masks or other barriers for exhalation must
    be obligatory for all citizens.  This
    will reduce the spread, and it will help our hospitals manage the pandemic, and
    save our economy. With this precaution we might be able to go back to work.

  36. Over 3 years Democrat and the mainstream media were too busy trying to impeach president Trump and paid no attention on any thing else. While the Chinese doctor Li Wilien warned the world about the new coronavirus, Adam Schiff and Nedler were busy and used the house intelligent community searching for the Ukrainian military aid to impeach president Trump. The Chinese communist regime went to silent doctor Li Wilien and covered up the coronavirus and lied to The World Health Organization and did not allow the US disease and to go to Wuhan because they have something to hide and they also kick out the American journalists.President Trump banned ten of thousands Chinese each day to enter the US . Democrat and the mainstream media called him racist. When the Chinese communist regime lockdown Wuhan it was already too late because thousands of people had already been infected and traveling in and out Wuhan and spreading the coronavirus around the globe. Democrat and the mainstream media are still defending the Chinese communist regime who have no human being right and lied to world. The global pandemic could be prevented if the Chinese communist regime told the truth to the world. China must be accountable for the global pandemic. In the national emergency in the time between life and death of the American people, Nancy Pelosi,Chuck Schumer and AOC are still playing the political game slowed down the relief money for the American workers who live paycheck to paycheck and struggling to pay their rent and put the food on the table for their families and tried to put their agenda green new deal which have nothing to do with the coronavirus pandemic. Now Nancy Pelosi wants to investigate the coronavirus trash force in the middle of the pandemic while thousands of people are dying which is nothing but for their political game instead of saving lives so it is totally wasting the people time.

  37. THANKS TRUMP…..YOU…. YOUR FAMILY…. AND YOUR STOOGES HAVE FINALLY MADE AMERICA NUMBER ONE…MAGA…MAKE AMERICANS GASP FOR AIR…. ARROGANCE AND IGNORANCE……A DANGEROUS COMBINATION FOR ALL OF US….

  38. His “greatest generation” created this world we now live in, now he thinks it can all be solved with a think tank? Enjoy your ivory tower, in that gated community, you phony.

  39. Only after we end the US mantra of a capitalistic business experiment can we elect leaders who know how to run a country.

  40. The worse thing is that still a lot of people believe in this crazy person who is in the white house .

  41. No. Our greatest challenge is the traitors in our government, media, and business. They're all sold out to foreigners. Maybe this will wake up real America finally

  42. BILL GATES IS HAPPY WITH THE PANDEMIC HAHAHA HE WAS CAUGHT UP SETTING UP EMERGENCY PUBLIC TENTS WITH TAINTED NEEDLES FOR TESTING

  43. America denies confiscating a shipment of 200,000 face masks in Hong Kong which was en route to Berlin. This type of blatant muscle-flexing is super disgusting. America is part of the world community and should act accordingly. Google it…

  44. WHAT ARE WE DOING ABOUT THE ELECTIONS?!!!!!! HOW ARE PEOPLE GOING TO VOTE FROM HOME?!!!! WHY IS THIS NOT BEING TALKED ABOUT?

  45. trump has failed the general public and should be stripped of the presidency and imprisoned for dereliction of duty

  46. We need people who are qualified to talk and not worry about licking the boots of Donald Trump and over look that and bring real people who have degrees in their health fields. God help us all from around the world.

  47. Common ground in Washington DC will be a miracle, good to see Tom B. well and doing his job after his illness!!

  48. I've been in crowds of people every day since this started, but I don't have the virus. It's anecdotal, but I think my habit of smoking weed every night is what makes me immune.

  49. Only in America do you deny already purchased masks to your greatest ally – Canada. Trump told 3M not to export them to Canada. Canada took in 33,000 Americans on 911, housed and fed them for over a week. Our nurses are crossing from Windsor to Detroit to help take care of your corona virus patients in hospital. The US is a country to be proud of? A shining becon on the hill?? Despicable, horrendous and shamefull!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  50. Let's be real…..
    American has failed America., and those (2)-great mines you speak of, will be rejected by this current Administration…..
    You have an administration that "hates" {intelligence & science}.
    UNTIL AMERICA GET RID OF THE REAL VIRUS (Trump)….
    {WHOM, AMERICA KNEW WAS ILL* EQUIPPED FOR THE ASSIGNMENT AS COMMANDER AND CHIEF ¡¡¡¡
    EVERYONE SEEN THIS DISASTER ON THE HIGH-RISEN.
    {MEANING WE ALL KNEW OF HIS LEVEL OF INCOMPETENCE……
    NO ONE IS SURPRISE OR SHOCK OF THE MIS*MANAGEMENT……BY THIS ADMINISTRATION…..
    THEY DON'T HAVE A CLUE !!!!!!!

  51. #Surveillance has been advised to use EPA data to prove that Top Secret Surveillance incharge Ivanka Trump was involved in using NASA, GPS and SpaceX satellites to mutate the flu virus into Coronavirus in Wuhan China. #Surveillance is advised to prove the satellite crime and disable bitcoin accounts that may have benefited from the satellite hacking bio terrorism crime.
    Now that the virus is reversed to its original mastermind’s country, investigators must use EPA data.

  52. Listen to this nurse talking plain common sense, come on people, your smarter than this, please don't believe the misinformation, use your brain, please!! Our survival depends on it!!!
    https://youtu.be/y9ZnrrDi8vg

  53. Don’t call down the thunder if you ain’t ready for the lightening! In other words don’t come crying you didn’t know it was this or that when, You get it, if you wasn’t doing the right thing, which right now is staying home and or wearing masks if you do gotta go out!

  54. You can't find common ground when channels like this exist. They are negative all the time and spread misinformation as their charter. They are losing credibility and they don't like it, so they get meaner and more corrupt by the day. People are catching on.

  55. After the LATEST round of MSNBC LIES were exposed, the only supporters MSNBC has left
    are their SHILLS and those who haven't taken the time to check out their DOZENS of Lies.
    WHICH ARE YOU??? Google it !

  56. I'm glad gun grabbers are silent through all this. At least we dont hear the ignorant rants about high cap. "clips" and "pistol grips" ahahah

  57. Oh yeah….what we need right now or people encouraging hate and distrust in our leaders…..that's crazy helpful….I m neither pro or anti trump but every leader in every country is just winging this….how about we put politics aside for just a minute….and cut our leaders some slack…..armchair politicians think they have all the answers….if the responsibility for this and all the lives lost were dropped in your lap I m sure many of the decisions you make wouldn't be perfect either….
