When asked how it will be possible while he was briefing at the White House on Thursday afternoon, President Donald Trump said this was a tribute to the amount of testing they are doing. Many people are being tested across the country.

Vice President Mike Pence said there are now coronavirus testing centers in all 50 states and 552,000 citizens have been tested nationwide. For Donald Trump, he is proud as this number is above the tests in South Korea.

However, President doubted the Beijing figures and told reporters they had no idea what was happening in China.

However, even if it is going to happen, people should not misinterpret it. They will still be needed to practice as much social distancing as possible. In addition, people will to have to wash their hands frequently and avoid shaking hands.

In addition, in a letter written to state governors Thursday, Mr. Trump said that his team plans to publish guidelines on federal social distancing that will allow some regions to relax the barriers.

In the letter, he said that new guidelines would identify low, medium, and high-risk zones. This will allow the government to consider maintaining, increasing, or relaxing some of the restrictions imposed, including social detachment, total closure, and other mitigating measures that have been applied. He added that robust test protocols could allow some counties to lift their protective measures against the pandemic.

The same Thursday, President called Sean Hannity during the host’s program on Fox news, confirming that he hopes Idaho, Iowa, Nebraska, and other parts of Texas could open earlier than other regions in the country.

The plan was supported by prominent Democrat Andrew Cuomo, governor of New York, who said nationwide quarantine orders may not be the best approach against infectious coronavirus. He added that the commissioning strategy should be implemented based on observed public health.
