President Trump on Saturday warned that the United States is approaching what might be the nation’s roughest stretch but amid the escalating coronavirus outbreak.
“This will be probably the toughest week, between this week and next week,” Mr. Trump stated on the White House’s day by day briefing on the COVID-19 outbreak. “There [will] be a lot of death, unfortunately.”
Mr. Trump stated their sole consideration is attempting to save lots of lives and chided “certain media outlets” for spreading unspecified false rumors.
“I guess they’re looking for ratings — I don’t know what they’re looking for,” he stated. “It’s so bad for our country.”
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo had estimated earlier within the day that the “apex” in New York, the hardest-hit state, was doubtless a couple of week away.
“This is a painful, disorienting situation,” Mr. Cuomo stated. “This day will end and we will get through it and we will get to the other side of the mountain. And we will be better for it. But we have to do what we have to do between now and then.”
Mr. Trump spoke because the variety of coronavirus circumstances within the U.S. jumped above 300,000. There have been greater than 8,000 coronavirus-related deaths within the U.S. and not less than 10,000 folks have formally recovered, in keeping with a Johns Hopkins University tracker.
