US President Donald Trump FINALLY Comes To His Senses In The Fight Against Coronavirus

As the number of novel coronavirus cases in the US hits 152,631, it seems that President Donald Trump is finally coming to his senses.

As the US finally gets its Covid-19 response underway with the approval of a historic aid package last week, a lot of the talk has centred around Trump’s hotly criticized plan to ease up on social distancing measures.

Trump’s approach towards his presidency has always been businessman first, president later and his urgency to get the US economy up and running by mid-April left many health experts rather worried for the well being of Americans.

Thankfully, it looks like Trump has finally come to his senses after extending his stay-at-home guidelines until the end of April. The reversal, which he said would be disclosed in greater detail on Tuesday, comes as the death toll in the country hit 2460. At the time of writing, that number stands at 2,864

Speaking at a coronavirus briefing at the White House Rose Garden, Trump told reporters “The peak, the highest point of death rate, is likely to hit in two weeks,” adding that “Nothing would be worse than declaring victory before the victory is won.”

Trump’s change of heart also comes after Dr. Anthony Fauci, the country’s top infectious disease expert, predicted that the pandemic could ultimately kill between 100,000 and 200,000 people in the United States if mitigation was not successful.
Fauci was also present at the Rose Garden took the opportunity to clarify that his prediction was based on models to show the worst-case scenario if people did not practice social distancing.
As it stands, the number of positive cases worldwide is 769,721, with 36,932 deaths and 160,243 recoveries.
