May 5, 2020 – PBS NewsHour Full Episode

Season 2020 Episode 12822

Tuesday on the NewsHour, President Trump makes his first cross-country trip since the pandemic took hold of American life. Plus: Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson on reopening his state, when critical COVID-19 care arrives by helicopter, the global competition for scarce protective medical gear, what the pandemic means for mental health, high mortality for British people of color and quarantine DIY. Correction: Due to an editing error in Malcolm Brabant's segment on the United Kingdom, we incorrectly said that country was now second to the United States in per capita rate of deaths due to COVID-19. The UK is second in total deaths to the United States, per official counts. The NewsHour regrets the error.
