Trump’s coronavirus briefing: He claims he has ‘Total Authority’

President Donald Trump declared the “total” authority Monday to decide how and when to reopen the economy. He also said he has tacts to do so following weeks of tough social distancing guidelines aimed at fighting the new coronavirus.

“The president of the United States calls the shots,” Mr. Trump stated. “They can’t do anything without the approval of the president of the United States.”

It’s been a little over a month that following the US coronavirus outbreak, states began establishing social distancing and stay-at-home orders.

However, governors from both parties were quick to push back, remarking they have principal responsibility for ensuring public safety in their states and would determine when to begin a return to regular performances.

Trump wouldn’t present details of his asserted power source, which he claimed, despite constitutional restrictions, was absolute.

“When somebody is president of the United States, the authority is total,” Trump stated at the White House. “The governors know that.”

Governors Refute Trump’s Claim on Easing Restrictions

And governors made clear Monday they wouldn’t allow pressure from the president to act before they consider it safe.

“All of these executive orders are state executive orders and so, therefore, it would be up to the state and the governor to undo a lot of that,” New Hampshire Republican Gov. Chris Sununu announced.

“The government doesn’t get opened up via Twitter. It gets opened up at the state level,” stated Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, a Democrat.

“Well, seeing as we had the responsibility for closing the state down,” Gov. Tom Wolf of Pennsylvania asserted, “I think we probably have the primary responsibility for opening it up.”

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott manages to employ an administrative order this week to reopen parts of the state’s coronavirus-ravaged economy, however, President Donald Trump tells the decision is his to make.

Before Abbott announced his decision on Monday, Trump posted on Twitter that the authority to “open up the states” rests with him and the federal government, not with the governors.

Trump continued, nevertheless “the Administration and I are working closely with the Governors, and this will continue.”

“A decision by me, in conjunction with the Governors and input from others, will be made shortly!” he stated.

“This is not going to be a rush-the-gates, everybody-is-able-to-suddenly-reopen-all-at-once” situation, Abbott said. “Our ability to open businesses in Texas will be tied to our ability to contain the spread of the coronavirus. … We want to expand those that can open.”

Fauci expresses ‘cautious optimism,’ US could start reopening in May

Dr. Anthony Fauci, White House health advisor, uttered “cautious optimism” on Sunday. The US coronavirus death peak is now slowing down. The current deaths toll of Coronavirus in the US is 21,474 cases.

Fauci is the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases too. He warned on CNN’s “State of the Union” that the entire country won’t swiftly turn back on like a “light switch.”

However, there are “indications” that some of the metrics used to gauge the crisis “are starting to level off” in some areas, he stated, saying that parts of the country may commence reopening as soon as May.

He maintains a “rolling re-entry” is needed according to the situation of the new coronavirus pandemic in various parts of the country.

Fauci says those factors include the region of the country, the essence of the epidemy and the potential threat of an outbreak to come again in the future.

Social distancing guidelines ordered by President Donald Trump arranged to lapse April 30.

Trump tends to restart the economy, which has postponed and was in a paused state due to the most Americans are under orders to “stay at home” to help halt the virus’ spread.

Trump insists on reopening the economy

President Donald Trump persists wanting to revive the economy as he attempts to balance economic health and public health.

Ordinarily, presidential elections depend much on the status of the economy. Trump has to be viewing the economy dropping jobs and has to consider the economy has historically been linked to a president’s re-election hopes.

Certainly, the rate of voters who agree the economy is getting worse skyrocketed to 60% in the newest Quinnipiac University poll. That’s up from 28% at the start of March. When several voters think the economy is getting terrible historically, incumbents almost always lose.

New York deaths stabilizing at ‘horrific rate’

Another 783 people have died from the virus in the past day New York Coronavirus Peak, Cuomo said during a press briefing, noting that deaths have ranged between 777 and 799 each of the previous three days.

“That is not an all-time high, and you can see that the number is somewhat stabilizing, but it is stabilizing at a horrific rate,” Cuomo stated. “These are just incredible numbers depicting incredible loss and pain.”

“Everybody wants to hear that it ends in two weeks or three weeks or four weeks or here’s a date that I can tell you that it’s over,” Cuomo continued. “I also said from day one and when I raised my hand to take the oath originally, I would never tell you anything but the truth even if the truth is inconvenient or painful.”

CDC warned Tuesday the US Coronavirus Outbreak is 'Inevitable' and asked Americans to prepare.

Update, 4/12/20:
US has the highest number of Coronavirus deaths since the outbreak

Dr. Anthony Fauci stated that calls to perform life-saving social distancing measures encountered “a lot of pushback” early in the US coronavirus outbreak. The country is now seeking for directions to more efficiently react to the virus should it rebound in the fall.

He required to answer if social distancing and stay-at-home measures could have stopped deaths. They been put in place in February, instead of mid-March.

“I mean, obviously, you could logically say that if you had a process that was ongoing and you started mitigation earlier, you could have saved lives,” Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, notified. 

“Obviously, no one is going to deny that. But what goes into those decisions is complicated,” continued Fauci. He is a key member of the Trump administration’s coronavirus task force. 

“But you’re right, I mean, obviously, if we had right from the very beginning shut everything down, it may have been a little bit different. But there was a lot of pushback about shutting things down back then.”

However, the state has explicated indications of the outbreak slowing down, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo noted on Wednesday.

“We took dramatic actions in this state. New York pause program that closed down schools, businesses, social distancing, and it’s working,” Cuomo spoke at a press conference on Wednesday.

“It [the measures] is flattening the curve [of the number of infections] and we see that again today so far. Meaning that curve is flattening because we are flattening the curve by what we are doing. If we stop what we are doing, you will see that curve change. That curve is purely a function of what we do day in and day out.”

The tri-state area of New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut has seen a combined total of over 8,000 deaths among the areas more than 207,000 affected victims.

CDC issues travel advisory for over the Coronavirus Outbreak in the US

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention proposed a travel advisory urging people in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut to “refrain from non-essential domestic travel” for the next two weeks.

Trump Considers Tri-State Quarantine

President Donald Trump had asked the CDC to issue the advisory after he had dropped the idea of a quarantine earlier on Sunday.

New York Death Toll Doubling Every two day

The death toll in New York has soared again, multiplying death cases like every two days. Louisiana and New Jersey are also high in case numbers of dead, whereas Washington’s figures have grown slowly in the past two weeks.

Trump suspends travel from Europe to the US over Coronavirus Pandemic

Trump’s travel order, which applies to 26 European countries, and does not apply to Britain, capped a day of mounting US Coronavirus Outbreak on the domestic front from an extremely infectious respiratory illness, also known as COVID-19.

The World Health Organization announced the COVID-19 a global pandemic. The number of confirmed Coronavirus Cases in the US has climbed to more than 1,200.

President Trump on Wednesday announced in a televised speech: “We made a lifesaving move with early action on China. Now we must take the same action with Europe.”

That is to say “The virus will not have a chance against us. No nation is more prepared, or more resilient,” Trump declared above all “We are all in this together. We must put politics aside, stop the partisanship and unified together as one nation, and one family.”

“There will be exemptions for Americans who have undergone appropriate screening, and these prohibitions will not only apply to the tremendous amount of trade and cargo but various other things as we get approval,” Trump continued. “Anything coming from Europe to the United States is what we are discussing.”

The US Coronavirus Outbreak is inevitable, CDC says

A spread of the New Coronavirus in the US is inevitable, In conclusion, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warns on Tuesday.

“It’s not so much a question of if this will happen anymore, but rather more of a question of exactly when this will happen and how many people in this country will have severe illness,” she said.

Messonnier said “our containment strategies have been largely successful” so far. “As a result, we have very few cases in the United States and no spread in the community,” she declared.

“But as more and more countries experience community spread, successful containment at our borders becomes harder and harder,” she continued.

Above all, 14 cases of the virus in the U.S confirmed. Not including 39 passengers of a Cruise Ship Coronavirus Americans in Japan who tested positive and came back to the U.S. under the watch of federal health officials.

Messonnier maintained: “I continue to hope that in the end we’ll look back and feel like we are overprepared, but that is a better place to be in than being underprepared.”

CDC Warning!

The CDC urges a three-step “non-pharmaceutical intervention” plan: “Americans should continue to practice protective measures — hand-washing, staying home from work when sick — while local officials should make sure systems are in place — teleschooling, working remotely — should face-to-face interactions need to be reduced. Health care facilities should prepare to increase telehealth systems. It should also delay elective surgeries should the need arise.”

The U.S. now is suspending all travel from Europe to the U.S. for 30 days beginning Friday, March 13th, at midnight to slow the spread of coronavirus.

Consequently, the CDC noted the threat to Americans “remains low” and that they are asking precautions not panic. And to channel any concern they might have about COVID-19, known as “coronavirus,” notwithstanding being one of many “coronaviruses,” into “preparing for its arrival.”

“Ultimately, we expect we will see community spread in this country,” Dr. Nancy Messonnier, administrator of the CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, declared Tuesday at a news conference.

Stocks Slope again for US Coronavirus Outbreak

“We are asking the American public to work with us to prepare, in the expectation that this could be bad,” Dr. Messonnier added.

Soon after the news conference, stock markets plunged for the second day as investors dumped stocks and turned to the safety of government bonds. The S&P 500 fell by more than 3 percent, following a 3.4 percent slide on Monday. The worst day for the American markets since February 2018.

Republican Senator Roy Blunt, however, emerging from a briefing on the virus, said a vaccine wouldn’t be available for 12 to 18 months, even as scientists around the world race to develop one. 

The White House on Monday asked Congress for $2.5 billion more funding to battle the spread of the coronavirus, but Democratic leaders have already said that it is insufficient given the scope of the health emergency.

Actions are taken

As the outbreak of Coronavirus is imminent, Hospital administrators nationwide predict a wave of patients that could strain their intense care units and isolation rooms. Numerous are beginning to conserve medical supplies, including technoscientific masks and ventilators.

Meanwhile, The Food and Drug Administration has watching supplies of about 20 important drugs. Drugs that are manufactured in China or depend on ingredients made only there. It includes such common drugs as aspirin, ibuprofen, and penicillin.

The World Health Organization stated that the pace of confirmed new cases in China, which exceeded 2,000 a day a month ago, had dropped steadily, to a low of 508 on Monday.

The severe measures required by the Chinese authorities to isolate patients and the hardest-hit areas had likely prevented hundreds of thousands of additional infections, the W.H.O. officials added.

However, W.H.O. officials have also suggested that the world is unprepared for a leap in infections. Which could overwhelm medical resources in many countries. They also warned that new cases could suddenly resurge in China, as the government struggles to get people back to work.

And there are persistent doubts about the accuracy of infection figures reported by the Chinese government. It is raising the possibility that the true magnitude of the outbreak remains underreported.
