TUCKER CARLSON (HOST):  So without, you know, being hasty about this, many thousands are getting infected, many people are dying. But looking forward to how we can transition out of this, what do you think the best course is? 

DON PEEBLES: Well I think first of all we need a reality check. You just pointed out the fact that the projections continue to decline so they've been falling. They have been incorrect. And so we now know that there was a big overreaction here. So the first thing we need to do is the people who are not at risk, they need to get back to work. They need to get back into moving this economy forward because that is the protector of our democracy. And then those who are at risk, those over 65, we can ask them to voluntarily self-quarantine, to work remotely from home and do many of the things that they're doing now.
