MARIA BARTIROMO (ANCHOR): I want to get into, really, your investigation into China, which goes back years, which you and I have spoken about in the past. But first, give us your take on the administration's response to coronavirus.
REP. DEVIN NUNES (R-CA): Well most importantly, I think what American people have to understand is we need to stop panicking here, OK? There's no shortage of food in this country. People don't need to go to the store and fight over a bottle of water or toilet paper. I come from the breadbasket of the world, right here in the San Joaquin Valley. We want people to go out and buy food, but there's no shortage of food. The main thing that people need to focus on -- it's just a couple of issues. Number one, if you're sick, at all, be smart. Stay away from people. Number two, if you know someone that is senior, or if you have an underlying health condition, especially with your lungs, you are at high risk. So we need to focus all of our energy, on our senior population with underlying health concerns. There is no reason, Maria, for the American people to be running to the grocery store, to buy 27 packs of toilet paper. OK? There's no shortage of toilet paper, no shortage of food, OK? And that's coming from someone who -- we want you to buy food, OK?
BARTIROMO: Right, I understand.
NUNES: And I'll just say this too. I'll just say this too. You know, you were just talking about the economy, and where there's a lot of concerns with the economy here, because people are scared to go out. But I will just say, one of the things you can do -- if you're healthy, you and your family, it's a great time to just go out, go to a local restaurant --
NUNES: Likely you can get in easily. There's -- you know, let's not hurt the working people in this country, that are relying on wages and tips to keep their small business going.
BARTIROMO: You know, we're very sympathetic --
NUNES: Don't run to the --
NUNES: Yeah, just don't run to the grocery store and buy, you know, $4,000 of food.
BARTIROMO: Right, they're cleaning off the shelves.
NUNES: Go, you know, go to your local pub, yeah.
