Before him and I'm Caylee hearts on here are the five things you need to know this Friday number one. The mystery virus in China spreading amid new concerns here at home. A student at Texas a and M and others to Gannett Tennessee tech university are being tested for the deadly new corona virus meanwhile China is taking new steps to stop the virus from spreading. Cutting off transportation for 33 million people in the region where the outbreak started. US State Department is also wishing to travel warning for that area never to the impeachment trial in Washington Democrats are getting ready to wrap up their opening statements today in the senate impeachment trial. Laying out how they believe president front but used its power by pressuring Ukraine to target Joseph Biden they have about eight hours lap before the president's defense team gets its turn tomorrow. On to number three the race for 20/20. California senator Connolly Harris is reportedly considering endorsing her former rival Joseph Biden analysts say the move could pave the way for her parents to become Biden's running mate if he wins the nomination. Sources tell the New York Times any endorsement would comment after the senate impeachment trial that before the harbor why things sexual assault trial resumed today after emotional and graphic testimony from actress Anna bella to your. The former soprano star told jurors that Weinstein attacked her inside her Manhattan apartment more than 25 years ago. Visibly shaking she called the experience discuss state ABC's aerial rash effort counts the testimony. The Hollywood titan forced his way into lower Manhattan apartment he started to one button his shirt. I realize what he wanted. It was pretty obvious tears streaming down her face she or at demonstrating how he pinned her hands above her head as she fought back by punching and kicking him. The actress claiming several weeks later she confronted Weinstein he leaned into me and said this remains between you would night. His eyes were black I thought he was going to hit me right. There. It's your as the first one thing accuser to testify he's charged into events events. And claims both work spiritual. And finally number five for crying over spilled milk. How about all of this red wine nearly 100000 gallons of cabernet came very close to spilling into a river in northern California. Some of that leaked out of a tank at that's been here enough to Kosovo and to develop and if you ponds the Weinstein towards a creek that feeds in nearby river. But officials think they stop the flow in time. We feel that I could not that much wind got into the waterway we are investigating the other tanks have moved wine out of that area as well to prevent any future leaks as well. They cabernet sells for about 27 dollars a bottle so it looks like millions of dollars were locked out that's pretty heavy there. Score everyone let's get right to that mystery virus from China and several breaking developments overnight the US State Department has issued a new travel warning. As via word of a third possible case here in the United States. That college student in Tennessee and another in Texas. Are now being tested after showing symptoms of this newly identified virus at least one of them recently traveled to the region in China. Where we've just learned that 33 million people are now being quarantined. The lockdown area was expanded overnight. Iran Washington today senators will hear from top health officials to get the latest on this growing concern. This morning US health officials are monitoring three new possible cases of the deadly corona virus a student at Texas a and M a self quarantine in his home. After returning from China falling ill and going to the ER patients a mild symptoms and was improving. So that's of a very good sign. And overnight word that a student at Tennessee tech university has reported mild symptoms and is being tested for the virus. The first confirmed case in the US a man in his thirties is being treated near Seattle in isolation in a bio containment room. The immediate risk the American public is low. However this situation is evolving quickly and I do expect more cases in the United States' as well as human to human transmission. It just the last week the virus which triggers cold like symptoms has spread to ten countries sickening at least 830 people leaving at least 45 dead. Mostly in Wuhan one of the largest transportation hubs in central China clinics in the city are now overwhelmed us patients are screened as supermarket shelves are bare. A 24 hour live stream shows workers in Wuhan frantically building a brand new hospital. With 1000 new beds just for corona virus patients a travel ban remains in place in Wuhan along when nine other nearby cities to try to contain the virus is spread. But he more than 33 million people under quarantine. Quarantining the city of eleven million as well as a couple of other cities in China. That's never been done before it this is a giant public health experiment. And we hope it's successful. An Al China is taking a new step closing one of its most revered cultural sites and one of the busiest tourist attractions in the world. Beijing's forbidden city will close Saturday until further notice this. Is a new disease and we continue to learn about it. So far the data suggest that the incubation period is in round two weeks what will really be learning more about this over the next couple weeks. US State Department has now issued a do not travel warning for the Wuhan region of China in addition to they've forbidden city. Shanghai Disneyland is also closing because of that helped break. And turning out of the other big story of the week president trumps impeachment trial. Democrats are getting ready to wrap up their opening statements they're laying out how they believe president trump abused his power. One of the big struggles in the senate has been staying awake and now some senators are getting help paying attention.

His conduct is not America first. It is Donald Trump spurs. The house managers accusing the president of abusing his power and obstructing congress. Alleging the president only started pushing Ukraine to launch investigations against do bite in. When pulls started showing the former VP as his biggest threat. No president has ever used his office to compel a foreign nation to help him cheat. In our elections. In the actions of the president do not reach that level no matter what school of thoughts are on the. President's lawyers maintaining abuse of power is not a crime and therefore not an impeachable offense. Democrats countering that argument by playing this old video of what the president's top allies senator Lindsey Graham from the Clinton impeachment trial. Denton happier crack. He's just when you start using your office in your acting in a way that hurts people. You committed our crime. All 100 senators required to fit through these marathon sessions. Doing what they can to stay alert some using Phidget spinners in stressful others even sketching. And lead house prosecutor Adam Schiff closing this day with this impassioned plea for the senate. If you find him guilty. You must find. That he should be removed. Because right matters. Because right matters. And the truth maps. Otherwise we are lost.
