Washington, D.C. – On Sunday, President Trump announced that the self distancing guidelines the federal government has been suggesting will be extended through April 30. Initially, President Trump had indicated that he wanted the US to be back open by Easter. This is a significant transition in position for President Trump. In his remarks, he indicates that models show that the peak death rate could be in 2 weeks for the United States.
This comes as the cases of COVID-19 in the United States continue to spike. Strong distancing measures have been in place for under 2 weeks in many areas. According to experts, it could take up to 2 weeks to see full results of the measures. The United States is now the leader in global COVID-19 cases with almost 140,000 cases.
President Trump indicates that he believes the US will be in a strong position to recover by June 1 based on the current models and data. He has come under a lot of criticism for his desire to get the country back open as quickly as possible. The recovery for the United States will take some time, but the change in position is most likely welcome for all Americans across the country.
