Good Monday morning.

As the new week kicks off, here's a brief thread of some #coronavirus notes and the latest political news out of Washington...
The latest #coronavirus figures from @JohnsHopkins:

- 1,863,406 confirmed cases
- 115,225 confirmed deaths

In United States:
- 557,590 cases
- 22,109 deaths

Here in DC, Congress remains out of session...but negotiations are underway to determine:

1) How should more $ be added to the small biz relief program? Republicans want $250 billion added right now, on its own. Democrats want $ for hospitals & local governments to be included.
2) What should a "Phase 4" #COVID19 relief package include? And will it be worth more than the $2.2 trillion "Phase 3" package that was passed a few weeks ago?

3) Will Congress return to DC on Monday, April 20, as is now scheduled? And if not, when?
Lastly, is Dr. Anthony Fauci's job at risk?

@realDonaldTrump quoted-tweeted this tweet yesterday, that includes the hashtag #FireFauci.

Fauci has been the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases since 1984.
