Trump Administration Extends ‘Stay at Home’ Guidance to April 30

Published by Matt Fishman on

In the White House’s coronavirus task force press briefing today, the Trump Administration revealed they are “extending their guidelines to April 30th”, now “asking people to stay home for another 30 days.”

President Trump said the administration will be “providing a summary of [their] findings and supporting data… on Tuesday”, to corroborate this guidance.

Dr. Birx, a physician on the White House’s coronavirus task force, remarked that “if we didn’t mitigate (issue stay at home orders, institute travel bans, etc.)”, there would have been “between 1.6 and 2.2 million fatalities” and “half the United States would get infected [with the coronavirus]”.

The President also reported that the “peak in death rates is likely to hit in two weeks”, and the country will be “well on [its] way to recovery by June 1st”.

Currently, there have been 140,548 confirmed cases of the coronavirus with 2,446 deaths in the United States.
