This Day in History | 1947
President Harry S. Truman officially opens the first White House bowling alley. The two-lane bowling alley, situated in the West Wing, had been constructed earlier that year.
Good Morning Middle Americans,
The CDC is updating their official guidance when it comes to the official symptoms of COVID-19. We also have a report today about the Trump Organization’s debt to the bank of China. The Navy recommends reinstating fired Captain Brett Crozier to his command post aboard the USS Theodore Roosevelt. And finally, people are staying home and that means less violence, at least on the streets of Miami.

CDC Outlines 6 New Symptoms of COVID-19
(Sacramento Bee) – The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has tripled the number of coronavirus symptoms it lists on its website.
The federal organization previously listed fever, cough and shortness of breath as symptoms of COVID-19. The CDC has added six additional symptoms as people “have had a wide range of symptoms reported,” it says on its website.
New symptoms for the disease now include “chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat and new loss of taste or smell,” the CDC said.
There are more than 869,000 confirmed cases of coronavirus and nearly 50,000 deaths in the United States, according to Johns Hopkins University, but this is the first time the CDC has increased the number of signs of the disease.

Trump Owed Tens of Millions to Bank of China
(Politico) – Donald Trump is warning “China will own the United States” if Joe Biden is elected president.
But Trump himself has taken on debt from China. In 2012, his real estate partner refinanced one of Trump’s most prized New York buildings for almost $1 billion.

Navy Recommends Reinstating Fired Captain Who Sounded Alarm on Coronavirus Outbreak
(Politico) – Top Navy officials are recommending that Capt. Brett Crozier, the former commanding officer of the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt, be reinstated to his position, according to a senior defense official with knowledge of the decision.
The unprecedented decision, which still must be approved by Defense Secretary Mark Esper, would be a stunning rebuke to former acting Navy Secretary Thomas Modly, who fired Crozier over his handling of the outbreak and later resigned over remarks he made to the ship’s crew.

Miami Goes Seven Weeks Without a Homicide for First Time Since 1957
(CBS News) – Crime rates in cities nationwide have dropped as stay-at-home orders keep people indoors in an effort to fight the coronavirus pandemic. In Miami, Florida, there were no homicides for seven weeks for the first time since 1957, according to the Miami Police Department.
There were also no homicides during a six-week period for the first time since 1960. “We can say that it’s due to our police high visibility, attributed with the pandemic and the Stay At Home order,” a Miami Police Department spokesperson told CBS News.
Miami Mayor Francis Suarez declared a local state of emergency on March 12 to slow the spread of the coronavirus, and the order has since been extended six times in week-long increments.
