Donald Trump has declared a state of emergency as the number of coronavirus cases in the United States continues to rise.

However, the president has been accused of not taking the virus seriously enough, particularly given the country's low rate of testing.

When asked by PBS reporter Yamiche Alcindor about the US Pandemic Response Team that was disbanded in May 2018, Trump replied that he knew nothing about it.

Cal Thomas and Marion McKeone discussed the country's approach to tackling the virus in our weekly US slot.
