Trumps Foresees Over 240,000 Death Tolls in US, COVID-19 Cases Drastically Increases
The pandemic Novel Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) is now continuously spreading in the United States, which made US President Donald Trump foresees over 240,000 death tolls.
America surpassed China in death toll with over 3,400 already due to COVId-19.
With the continuing outbreak of such deadly virus in the United States, President Donald Trump and his designated task force is now alarmed with the increasing numbers of positive cases in the country.
On this matter, the American leader is foreseeing over 240,000 fatalities in the coming days across the United States.
According from the reported news through RT.com, the White House senior members who are part of the task force are warning the people of America that if they do not follow proper social distancing, the estimated fatalities may reach 100,000 to 240,000 in weeks to come due to the outbreak.
During the press conference at the White House held on Tuesday, Dr. Anthony Fauci immediately answered “Yes” when asked the possibility of reaching such mentioned fatality figure, which can lead to the worst nightmare in the history of America.
However, he said that through the implemented containment measures, he is hoping that there will be a huge reduction of the possible death toll.
Dr. Anthony Fauci works at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
As of March 31, 2020, there are 174,467 confirmed cases in the US and it now leads the most number of cases in the world. On Tuesday alone, they recorded over 12,000 new cases and 3,416 fatalities, as detailed online.
From the shared information through gulfnews.com, President Trump warned the Americans of a tough 14 days ahead of them. He added that it could be possible to expect nearly 100,000 fatalities during those tough days.
“It’s absolutely critical for the American people to follow the guidelines for the next 30 days. It’s a matter of life and death,” the White House leader said in a news conference as published online.
He added that they want the people of United States to prepare for the coming tough days and he predicted that there would be light after reaching the end of tunnel once they defeat COVID-19.
The charts shown by Deborah Birx clearly demonstrate the data and modeling, which revealed a massive increase of cases that could lead to more deaths. Based on the charts, it is possible that in the span of 30 days, the total death toll will reach up to 2.2 million without proper mitigation.
“There’s no magic bullet. There’s no magic vaccine or therapy. It’s just behaviors: Each of our behaviors translating into something that changes the course of this viral pandemic over the next 30 days,” said Birx during an interview with reporters as published through gulfnews.com.
Birx is the COVID-19 coordinator at the White House and predicted an increase of death toll in the next two weeks.
Rather than reopening the economy of America soon, Trump is now giving priority in extending the federal guidelines that he announced last Sunday already. He believed that it is important to follow social distancing, which he already extended until April 30 this year.
Currently, the world already reached the 800,000 mark of recorded COVID-19 cases.
