President Donald Trump announced he is extending social distancing guidelines until April 30.
“We will be extending our guidelines to April 30, to slow the spread. On Tuesday, we will be finalizing these plans and providing a summary of our findings, supporting data and strategy to the American people,” Trump said.
Modeling shows that the peak of the death rate will likely hit in two weeks, Trump said.
“The modeling estimates that the peak in death rate is likely to hit in two weeks, so I will say it again, the peak, highest point of death rates, remember this, is likely to hit in two weeks. Nothing would be worse than declaring victory before the victory is won,” Trump said.
Trump said he hopes the country will be on its way to recovery by June 1.
“We can expect that by June 1, we will be well on our way to recovery, we think by June 1. A lot of great things will be happening,” Trump said.
