President Donald Trump is expected to sign an executive order on cyber security on Tuesday, a source familiar with the situation said, marking the first action to address what he has called a top priority of his administration.
The order is expected to commission several different reviews of the government’s offensive and defensive cyber capabilities, according to two other sources briefed on a draft of the order that circulated last week.

John Hopkins’ coronavirus data indicates that the US could ultimately end up even worse off than Spain and Italy
Back in January and February, President Donald Trump and his sycophants in the right-wing media insisted that the deadly COVID-19 strain of coronavirus did not pose a major threat to the United States. But according to the Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE) at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, the U.S. is now #3 in coronavirus deaths. And when one closely examines Hopkins data, it becomes painfully clear that the U.S. might be moving into the #1 position in the weeks ahead — and why Dr. Anthony Fauci, expert immunologist, is warning that the U.S. could be looking at 100,000-240,000 deaths from COVID-19 when all is said and done.

Can you hide a pandemic? There’s no need to believe Beijing on China’s coronavirus success
Bloomberg News (4/1/20) reported this week that anonymous U.S. officials say that a secret intelligence report concludes that China's statistics on the coronavirus outbreak are "fake":
China has concealed the extent of the coronavirus outbreak in its country, under-reporting both total cases and deaths it's suffered from the disease, the U.S. intelligence community concluded in a classified report to the White House, according to three US officials.
