Confronting Coronovirus:
A PBS Newshour Special

 

It has been less than three months since reports of the coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan, China first made international headlines. With worldwide cases – on every continent except for Antarctica – growing significantly every day, the World Health Organization has now declared COVID-19 a global pandemic.

 

“Confronting Coronavirus: A PBS NewsHour Special” will focus on health precautions for individuals and the public-at-large as well as the pandemic’s economic impact in both the United States and globally. The primetime special, to be anchored by managing editor Judy Woodruff, will include interviews with officials; reporting from NewsHour’s bench of special correspondents throughout the world; and a virtual town hall with curated questions from people across America, to be moderated by NewsHour correspondents Amna Nawaz and William Brangham.

 

 

 

PBS NEWSHOUR SPECIAL COVERAGE:
Trump addresses the nation amid coronavirus pandemic

 

President Donald Trump is expected to address the nation at 3 p.m. HST. Watch live in the player above.

 

After days of trying to downplay the threat, Trump announced he would be delivering a prime-time Oval Office address to the nation Wednesday on the federal response to the coronavirus pandemic.

 

The swiftly mounting effort to contain the outbreak and financial fallout intensified on a grueling day as the number of confirmed cases of the infection topped 1,000 in the U.S. and the World Health Organization declared that the global crisis is now a pandemic. Communities nationwide canceled public events in the hopes of halting the spread of the infection.

Domestic Violence

 

Why is Domestic Violence still taking place, in staggering numbers, and how do we stop it? At least one in three women and one in four men nationwide are victims of violence at the hands of their partner during their lifetime, according to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. On a typical day, domestic violence hotlines nationally receive 21,000 calls for help, or about 15 calls every minute. Hawaiʻi’s domestic violence programs serve more than 500 people per day.

Suicide Prevention

 

It’s a stunning statement: Suicide is the leading cause of injury-related death in Hawaiʻi. Health officials report that an average of 190 people take their own lives each year. The reasons stem from depression, significant life changes and the trauma of abuse. Nearly a thousand other individuals survive a suicide attempt. But suicide can be prevented, and everyone can help.
