Donald Trump warns Americans about a lot of Coronavirus deaths in the US that he predicts will happen, and that they should prepare for “the toughest week” of the pandemic yet. He predicts a surge in the number of deaths.
At the daily briefing, Mr Trump assessed the near future and said “there will be death”. He promised medical supplies and personnel to the worst-hit states, hoping to reassure them.
Contrasting his warning, he also suggested that social-distancing guidelines shouldn’t be so hard during Easter.
“We have to open our country again,” Trump said Saturday at the White House. “We don’t want to be doing this for months and months and months.”

Trump’s suggestion to ease social-distancing came on the same day as Coronavirus infections in the US surpassed 300,000. By April 4, 8,500 people died from CoVid-19 in the US, with the majority in New York state – the epicenter of Coronavirus deaths in the US.
During his briefing, Trump talked about the next days in the US. “This will be probably the toughest week between this week and next week, and there will be a lot of death, unfortunately, but a lot less death than if this wasn’t done but there will be death,” Mr Trump said.
The president also said that a “tremendous amount of military, thousands of soldiers, medical workers, professionals” will be deployed, 1000 of them in New York City.
John Hopkins University stated that, so far, 60,000 people died worldwide from CoVid-19, and more than 1,1 million have been infected.
