The #DeleteUber movement, and Lyft's commitment to donate $1 million to the ACLU, has boosted Lyft's iOS app in the Apple App store thanks to calls on social media for customers to switch to its service..

iOS : On Monday Lyft's app is No. 6 in the U.S. App Store's rankings of all free apps. That's the highest it's been in the past year, according to app analytics provider App Annie.

  • Uber's app, meanwhile has dropped to No. 13, down from being two spots higher on Friday, when Trump signed his immigration executive order.

Android: On Android, Uber is still much higher in the rankings than Lyft, suggesting that much of the anti-Uber activism likely concentrated within iPhone users.

Why it matters: Uber is no stranger to controversies, but this is an example of a case in which there's a visible impact on its business.

President Trump has not attended a White House coronavirus task force meeting in “several months,” NIAID director Anthony Fauci told MSNBC on Friday.

Why it matters: At the beginning of the pandemic, the task force, led by Vice President Mike Pence, met every day, but in the "last several weeks," members have held virtual meetings once a week, Fauci said, even as the number of new cases continues to surge in the country.
