kscarbel2 Posted April 1, 2020 Share Posted April 1, 2020 Today, the White House was more upfront than anytime before on what they know of the Coronavirus, stating that 100,000 to 240,000 people might perish. Unlike previous briefings. the tone was serious, somber and grim. The president warned America to brace for a “very, very painful two weeks” "I want every American to be prepared for the hard days that lie ahead. We're going to go through a very tough two weeks," Trump said. “It’s absolutely critical for the American people to follow the guidelines for the next 30 days. It’s a matter of life and death.” White House coronavirus coordinator Deborah Birx displayed charts demonstrating data and modeling that showed an enormous jump in deaths to a range of 100,000 to 240,000 people from the virus in the coming months even with mitigation measures in place. Asked if Americans should be prepared for the likelihood that 100,000 will die from this virus, Dr Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said: “The answer is yes. As sobering a number as that is, we should be prepared for it." . Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
