‘There Will be a Lot of Death’: Trump Warning as Covid-19 Cases in US Pass 300,000

Donald Trump has warned Americans that the toll from coronavirus in the US will be ‘the toughest’ during the next two weeks, saying there will be ‘a lot of death’. According to the Johns Hopkins University in Maryland, by Saturday evening more than 305,000 cases of Covid-19 had been confirmed in the US, resulting in more than 8,000 deaths

At his daily briefing, Trump said “there will be death” in a grim assessment of the days ahead.

He sought to reassure the worst-hit states, promising medical supplies and military personnel to combat the virus.

But in contrast to his warning, Trump suggested easing social-distancing guidelines for Easter.

“We have to open our country again,” Trump told a news conference at the White House on Saturday. “We don’t want to be doing this for months and months and months.”

Trump’s calls to relax restrictions came on the day confirmed coronavirus infections in the US surpassed 300,000 , the highest number in the world.

As of Saturday, there were almost 8,500 deaths from Covid-19 in the US, with most in New York state.

New York state recorded 630 more deaths, another daily record that takes its toll to 3,565.

The state now has almost as many cases – more than 113,000 – as the whole of Italy, one of the countries worst-hit by coronavirus.
