Coronavirus has been confirmed in all 50 states.  Michigan's 12th District Congresswoman, Debbie Dingell, is working from home as some members of Congress have confirmed diagnosis of COVID-19, and members of her staff are awaiting test results.  In a conversation with WEMU's David Fair, Dingel says the CARES bill the U.S. House will pass today is a start, but it's imperfect.  Therefore, work will begin immediately on providing more financial assistance.
