BLAKE BURMAN (REPORTER): You mentioned projections, Cheryl. There is an internal CDC model that is also garnering attention today, as it predicts that by June 1st, roughly 3,000 people could die daily from COVID-19. That would be an escalation from where things stand at this very moment. Fox is told though that it does not take into account continued mitigation guidelines during the reopening phase that many states are entering into at this point in time. Right now the White House is pushing back on this model.


CHERYL CASONE (FOX BUSINESS ANCHOR): And the models have been, as we've found over the past couple of months, been all over the place as is. So that makes sense, the White House is pushing back on those reports.
