Trump Extending Social Distancing to April 30 as Death Toll Increases

Between March 26 and March 29, the US COVID-19 related deaths doubled.

Although initially hopeful, Trump administration has accepted the possibility of hitting potentially 100,000 to 200,000 deaths as a result of the COVID-19. As such, Trump administration will extend the social distancing suggestion until end of April, 2020.

Trump announced that although it would have been nice to ease up on the social distancing guidelines by Easter, based on newly obtained data, US will continue social distancing policy until the end of the month to prevent the currently projected contamination and death rates.

Press generally posted a positive response to Pres. Trump’s ultimate decision to lengthen the social distancing policy deadline to April 30, rather than choosing to reopen earlier per guidelines by economic advisors.
