As  Coronavirus Spreads, Warren Unveils Disease-Prevention Plan(Bloomberg) — The coronavirus has been in the news for only a few weeks, but Elizabeth Warren already has a plan to fight it.With Hong Kong announcing restrictions on travel from mainland China as part of an effort to contain the SARS-like virus that has claimed more than 100 lives, Warren released a proposal Tuesday morning aimed at containing and treating infectious diseases.“Diseases like coronavirus remind us why we need robust international institutions, strong investments in public health, and a government that is prepared to jump into action at a moment’s notice,” she wrote in a Medium post announcing the plan.Warren criticized President Donald Trump’s response to the outbreak, calling it “a mess.” and assailed the administration’s proposed funding cuts for feeral health agencies.She said her administration would prioritize developing a universal flu vaccine and replenish funding for the Public Health Emergency Fund, with the goal of speeding outbreak response. She proposed restoring an Obama-era White House position for health security that Trump eliminated in 2018. Warren also cited outbreaks as a reason to move towards Medicare For All, a policy proposal that she has espoused, saying it would give infected people access necessary care.This post is part of  Campaign Update, our live coverage from the 2020 campaign trail.To contact the author of this story: Misyrlena Egkolfopoulou in Washington at megkolfopoul@bloomberg.netTo contact the editor responsible for this story: Wendy Benjaminson at wbenjaminson@bloomberg.net, Kathleen HunterFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

Trump Unveils Middle East Plan that Offers Palestine Path to Statehood, Increased Territory

Trump Unveils Middle East Plan that Offers Palestine Path to Statehood, Increased TerritoryPresident Trump unveiled his administration's plan for Israeli-Palestinian peace at a press conference on Tuesday that currently lacks Palestinian buy-in but nevertheless provides a path to Palestinian statehood and substantial territorial gains.Trump said that Israel would adopt the plan as a basis for negotiations with the Palestinians."All prior administrations from the [administration of] Lyndon Johnson have failed," Trump told assembled officials and reporters, with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at his side. "But I was not elected to do small things, or shy away from large problems."Netanyahu thanked Trump and adviser Jared Kushner for their development of the plan.“The Jewish state owes [Jared Kushner], and it owes President Trump, an eternal debt of gratitude,” Netanyahu said.The plan itself calls for more than doubling the area of the West Bank currently under Palestinian control, as well as a Palestinian capital in East Jerusalem. However, the President also insisted that Israel would retain "undivided" control over its capital of Jerusalem, and that no Israelis or Palestinians would be uprooted from their homes to make the deal.The Palestinians would be required to meet certain conditions for the plan's implementation. These include the disarmament of terror groups Hamas and Islamic Jihad, the discontinuation of Palestinian Authority programs that pay salaries to terrorists or their families, and the recognition of Israel as a Jewish state.In return, the Palestinians would receive a state covering most of the West Bank and an investment of $ 50 billion in the state's economy, funded by other nations.The plan does not grant Palestinians the right of return, with the possible exception of a small number of refugees from Israel's 1948 War of Independence. Israel would be required to implement a building freeze for a period of four years, covering territory in the West Bank to be included in a future Palestinian state.
