WATCH: Missouri House Democrats, activists push for more action on COVID-19

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (KMIZ)

A group of activists including educators and those who have lost loved ones to COVID-19 joined with Missouri House Democrats on Tuesday to push the governor for more action on COVID-19.

The activists and House members held a news conference Tuesday afternoon in the Missouri Capitol.

The event is in conjunction with the Marked by COVID National Day of Action, which seeks to put faces on those lost to the COVID-19 pandemic. The day of action is set for Thursday, but the event was held two days early to coincide with the General Assembly's special session.

  1. Parents die. We all die. And some of these people would have had the same problems dealing with death no matter what the cause was. However I do find it Reckless and stupid that we are sending children back to school before we have a vaccine. If we require kids to be vaccinated against all other diseases that we have a vaccine for, before they can attend school, why would we send kids back to school before we have a vaccine for this.
