US President Donald Trump has said the country has passed the peak of new coronavirus cases, and it is predicted that states under some lockdowns will be reopened soon.
During the daily briefing at the White House, Mr. President said these new guidelines will be released on Thursday. The president said the country must now be reopened.
While it is a wish of every American, the country has the highest confirmed cases worldwide. Nationwide, over 644,000 cases has been confirmed with over 28,000 deaths. The state of New York has the highest number of confirmed cases nationwide. In addition, they have the highest mortality rate.
The US President has held talks with the state governor to lift some of the restrictions that have been placed on the fight against the coronavirus.
On Monday, he claimed that he had full authority to lift the state-level restrictions which were criticized by some governors but he has admitted that he actually had limited powers to make decisions at the state level.
According to a trustworthy source, it can be concluded that the United States has peaked the spread of this virus, and Trump himself confirmed this to reporters during Wednesday’s briefing.
Trump hopes the trend will continue and the country will continue to make progress.
Deborah Brix, coordinator of the White House Task Force, has also confirmed that new cases are declining nationwide.
And when Trump was asked why America registered the high number of deaths from the virus, he accused other countries of providing false information about their mortality rate rather than responding. He insisted that no one should trust the numbers from China.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo also complained that China should show full transparency about the coronavirus when he called Beijing counterpart Yang Jiechi.
Mr. Pompeo has repetitively blamed Beijing of covering up the extent of the epidemic in the early days, the claim that China has denied. President Donald Trump also said the U.S. is investigating unconfirmed reports alleging that the virus may have originated from a laboratory in Wuhan, capital of the Chinese province of Hubei, contrary to claims that it started in city’s market.
When asked about the allegations during his daily briefing, Trump replied that more and more stories are being heard, but we’ll see.
However, a Fox news report citing unnamed sources attributed the virus to being a naturally occurring pathogen that leaked from the Wuhan facility due to the lack of safety protocols that led to the trainee becoming infected and then spread the virus to her boyfriend.
In addition, the US media reported that the US embassy previously triggered an alarm over the safety of two laboratories in Wuhan. On Tuesday, a post in Washington claimed there was a 2018 clue warning that a facility in China was researching the bat coronavirus and testing the possibility of human transmission. The post added that there was a shortage of trained research staff in the facility which might have resulted in the current outbreak.
