As President Trump sees it, the U.S. has “passed the peak” of the coronavirus outbreak, which has infected more than 632,000 people in America. Speaking at the White House yesterday, Trump talked about his plans for the “reopening” of the country – ones that he’ll discuss with the country’s governors today.
“While we must remain vigilant, it is clear that our aggressive strategy is working,” Trump offered. “The battle continues, but the data suggests that nationwide we have passed the peak on new cases.”
As for what happens next, as we told you before - the governors of seven states on the East Coast and three states on the West Coast already have established working groups to coordinate the reopening of their regions. No word how those plans may be affected by Trump’s ‘guideline’ release today.
Where does the United States stand with COVID-19? At last check, there are more than 639-thousand cases across the United States – with just over 31-thousand patients succumbing to the illness – though more than 52-thousand have recovered. Globally, the numbers stand at just over 2.6-million people infected by the virus – with more than 137-thousand dead. On the plus side, more than 517-thousand have recovered. And in case you’re curious? Just over 3.2-million Americans have been tested.
