The White House presented data on Tuesday that projects at least 100,000 deaths due to the coronavirus if social distancing measures are continued through the summer. Epidemiologist Dr. Ali Mokdad, who was part of the team who compiled the data, joins us to discuss. And, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis continues to resist calls for a statewide stay-at-home order as the state's coronavirus cases reach nearly 7,000. We get an update from WLRN's Caitie Switalski. That and more, in hour one of Here & Now's April 1, 2020, full broadcast. You can find more at hereandnow.org — and follow us on Twitter, Instagram or join the conversation on Facebook.
