President Trump forced to extend social distancing guidelines to April 30 as the number of deaths and cases rise
Speaking in the White House Rose Garden, President Trump told the nation that we should reach “the peak in death rate” in about two weeks. Adding that the federal government is extending its social-distancing guidelines through April 30 – not Easter Sunday as he previously touted.
“The modeling estimates that the peak in death rate is likely to hit in two weeks. I will say it again. The peak, the highest point of death rates, remember this, is likely to hit in two weeks… Therefore, we will be extending our guidelines to April 30, to slow the spread,” said Trump.
Many believed Trump was hoping for a quicker resolution so as not to interfere with his political and economic gains.
“We can expect that by June 1, we will be well on our way to recovery” and that “a lot of great things will be happening,” Trump said during the same press conference.
Many Americans probably won’t hold their breath for that deadline either.
The April 30 deadline came after Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and other members of the virus task force reiterated the severity of the pandemic. The task force believes that 100,000 to 200,000 people could die in the United States.
