More than 500,000 U.S. children have been infected with the coronavirus, according the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, and 200 U.S. Teachers are now dead.

The Department of Health and Human Services is attempting to prevent Dr. Anthony Fauci from discussing the risk of COVID-19 in children. Secretary Michael Caputo e-mailed press officers at the National Institute of Health, where Fauci works, to instruct him to downplay risks in his forthcoming interviews.

“Can you ensure Dr. Fauci indicates masks are for the teachers in schools — not for children. There is no data, none, zero, across the entire world, that shows children especially young children, spread this virus to other children, or to adults or to their teachers.”

Four teachers have died of the coronavirus since the beginning of the school year—an ominous sign of what’s to come as students return to classrooms across the country — and the American Federation of Teachers confirm that 210 of its members have died since the beginning of the pandemic.

Nearly 50 million children have returned to in-person classes around the country this week.

The West, ablaze

Over 500,000 people have fled their homes as an unprecedented number of wildfires burn out of control on the West Coast.

More than 100 major wildfires are raging in the West, burning 5,300 square miles and claiming the lives of at least 17 people. The fires have devastated communities across California, Washington, and Oregon.

Climate scientists say the mechanism driving the wildfire crisis is straightforward: Human behavior, chiefly the burning of fossil fuels like coal and oil, has released greenhouse gases that increase temperatures, desiccating forests and priming them to burn.

Trump Explains Deceptions over COVID-19

Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward broke Richard Nixon’s Watergate scandal which led to the president’s resignation on August 8, 1974. Now its Donald Trump’s turn in his spotlight.

Trump told the journalist Bob Woodward, in a series of 18 recorded interviews, that he'd purposely minimized the risks of the coronavirus to the public, despite knowing in February that the virus was much deadlier than the flu and could be spread through the air.

“I wanted to always play it down,” Trump told Woodward in March. “I still like playing it down, because I don’t want to create a panic.” The details were advanced from the September 15th release of his forthcoming book, and the author will appear on '60 Minutes' on Sunday September 13, 2o2o to discuss his forthcoming book, “Rage.”

Finally, today marks the 19th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

The attacks resulted in 2,977 fatalities, over 25,000 injuries, and substantial long-term health consequences, in addition to at least $10 billion in infrastructure and property damage.

9/11 is the single deadliest terrorist attack in human history and the single deadliest incident for firefighters and law enforcement officers in the history of the United States, with 343 and 72 killed, respectively.

Let no man forget, nor any day erase the noble martyr from our memory or time.
