BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): We also have to keep in mind, too, there's a lot of positive news yesterday. The fact is, when someone says 200,000 people die, oops, I mean 60,000. And it's not going to be right away, it's going to be in August. That's how good we are doing and how off the models were. You have to wonder, as much as social distancing is working, I wonder if the economists are going to get in that room and say we have to stand up this economy in some way before we're not going to be able to stand when this is all said and done. Meanwhile, today -- 

STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): Right, but Brian, it's still 60,000 people, which is a staggering number. 

KILMEADE: It's a high number. But how many people are going to die as the country goes flat on its back for three months. We're not going to look like the same country. So the economists have to have a say in this.​
