The world is currently facing one of the worst pandemics in history. The coronavirus has been raging since the beginning of the year and doesn't seem to be slowing down anytime soon. Nations have asked their people to stay home and shut down in the coming weeks.
No country is in a position to lift the closings it has put on the people, except the United States of America under President Trump. President Trump has made a statement saying he wants to see America open again in two weeks.
1 A beautiful timeline
In a recent media interview, President Trump said he wants to reopen the country by Easter 2020, which falls on April 12. This is a very short deadline, as the entire country is currently in quarantine. He added that this will be discussed and will only continue if everything goes according to plan.
2 Is the date too early?
Since this date was announced by President Trump, many have expressed concerns that the date is too early. Currently, the coronavirus is spreading rapidly across the US. The entire country is in a closed mode and the streets look like an apocalyptic movie set. Experts have considered this decision.
3 Can it be stopped in two weeks?
This is the burning question that everyone is asking now. The date is set just two weeks later, and although the President is determined that this can happen, health experts are not confident in the short time given to get things under control.
4 What does President Trump want?
According to the President, he regrets seeing the country in a closed state. During his speech at City Hall, he confessed that he wants to reopen America and see it return to normal as soon as possible. This is something every government wants for their country, but something that must be well planned.
5 The state of the coronavirus in the US
The first case was identified on January 21 in Washington state. Since then, there have been 54,000 confirmed cases in the United States with 700 deaths to date. In Washington, there have been more than 2,400 cases with 124 deaths. In New York, there were more than 26,000 cases with 270 deaths, and in California, there were more than 2,500 cases with 51 deaths.
