Recent boom in coronavirus cases in US have shaken up many people to the point where the government asks for the retraction of the reopen plans of the states. The boom of coronavirus has even gotten to Trump who said this statement.
President Donald Trump offered a newly sober projection for the coronavirus pandemic Tuesday, warning Americans that the country had not yet seen the worst of it.
“It will probably, unfortunately, get worse before it gets better. Something I don’t like saying about things, but that’s the way it is,” Trump said at his first coronavirus-related news conference in weeks.
Trump, who had resisted wearing face coverings in public, also encouraged Americans to wear masks to help stop the spread of the virus.
“America’s youth will act responsibly, and we’re asking everybody that when you are not able to socially distance, wear a mask. Get a mask,” Trump said. “Whether you like the mask or not, they have an impact, they’ll have an effect, and we need everything we can get.”
Although Trump offered his most realistic picture yet of the challenges facing Americans as case numbers continue to rise, he still made false statements about the U.S. mortality rate, hospital capacity and states’ preparedness to combat the virus.
