Trump administration on Monday released new guidelines for the public to slow the spread of the coronavirus, including the closure of schools and avoiding groups of more than 10 people, discretionary trips, bars, restaurants and food courts.
Donald trump, surrounded by members of the task force, including Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and infectious diseases, said that the recommendations will be completed within 15 days.
“I think if we do a really good job, we not only reduce the mortality to a low level. And in the case of the failure of the growth crisis will continue in July and August“. Donald trump on the duration of the crisis.
The new measures reflect a growing seriousness of global attempts to contain the virus, as governments around the world, from Canada to Hungary, trying to close its borders to foreign travelers, and world leaders pledged to work together to coordinate the exchange of information and mitigate public fear.
“If all accept this change, all of these critical measures and sacrifice now, — said Mr. trump —we unite together as one nation, and we will win the virus, and we all together will be a big celebration“.
Dr. Fauci stressed that some of the guiding principles of the White house were uncomfortable, but they would stop the spread of the virus. He acknowledged that some people say that the government overreacted, but his answer was decisive: it was not an overreaction.
“I repeat it again and again: when you are faced with a new outbreak of communicable diseases, you are always behind what you think“, he said.
