WASHINGTON (AP) –President Donald Trump on Tuesday put Americans on the guard on a “hell of a bad two weeks” ahead. He warned Americans to brace up for elephants to come; as the White House thinks likely –in their projection –that some 100,000 to 240,000 deaths may be recorded in the U.S from the corona virus pandemic, despite the enforcement of social distancing and other safety measures.
Public health workers, however, emphasized a reduction in that figure, reacting to White House, they believe the number could be less, on the condition of strict adherence to social distancing from one person to another across the length and breadth of the country.
“We really believe we can do a lot better than that” a comment from Dr. Deborah Birx who is the coordinator of the Presidential taskforce on Corona virus pandemic. She infers that a lot more is required; and that Americans would have to take seriously, as the spread of the virus intensify the role they need to play in other to prevent further spread and revenging effect of the virus.
Also commenting, Dr. Anthony Fauci, a top government official, who is an expert in infectious and communicable disease, “This is a number that we need to anticipate, but we do not necessarily have to accept it as being inevitable”
It is “a matter of life and death” for Americans to adhere to the guidelines put forward by this administration – Trump said as he believes the country would in no long a time see a “light at the end of the tunnel” concerning this revenging virus that has killed some 3,500 Americans whilst infecting 170,000 more.
“I want every American to be prepared for the hard days that lie ahead” Trump lamented.
“This is going to be one of the roughest two or three weeks we have ever had in our country” Trump continued. “We are going to lose thousands of people”.
The heartrending prediction and projections was put forward to the public during a fierce disposition and savage moment of a two hour white house briefing. Looking at a best case scenario of fatalities in the ongoing corona virus pandemic, officials of white house described the death toll from the virus to likely be more than what was experienced in the World War 1 where –reminding the country –more than 53,000 American lost their lives. And in the event of seeing the height of a worst possible outcome of corona virus fatalities –a push to be brim – the death toll could approach the 291,000 figure of Americans killed on the battlefield during world war 11.
Birx, the leader of the White House taskforce on corona virus pandemic, said “There’s no magic bullet” She continued, during the White House public briefing, “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”
