The message of the The White House it is a dramatic one. The projection indicates that the coronaviruses to cause between 100,000 and 240.000 deaths in the United States. This is, at best, said dr. Deborah Birx, co-ordinator of the response to the pandemic: as long as they are held to the guidelines for social distancing. Stick to the rules, stated in Donald Trumpit is a matter of life and death.” “We’re going to spend two weeks in a lot of trouble,” warned the president. “It will be painful, very painful for the first two weeks.”
“I want all americans to be prepared for the difficult days that lie ahead,” he asked Trump, the more severe that it already held on the day on which the total number of people killed by the coronavirus in the The United States has exceeded that of those who died in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. On Tuesday afternoon the number of confirmed cases of Covid-19 in the country, with over 183.000, and the coronavirus had caused more than 3,700 deaths, a number that has tripled since last Thursday.
The president and the vice-president, as well as all the authorities present at the press conference to the daily, they wanted to convey to the public that the success or failure is dependent on the strict adherence to the measures of distance. “Mitigation is the answer,” he said of the developing countries, Anthony Fauci, the man-key in the strategy of the White House against the coronavirus. “On the 15th day of the mitigation had no effect. That is the reason why we know what we need to do more of the 30 days, is that now is the time don’t take their foot off the gas pedal, but stepping on it.”

The stark reality is took it upon himself to thwart their plans.
Dr. Birx has explained that the early models predicted 1.5 million, and 2.2 million deaths a year. But it was a no-policy change for social distancing to slow the spread of the virus. Birx, and Early, dwelt on the importance of the fact that the States that have not yet experienced the acceleration in the case of New York city (75.800) and New Jersey (18.600) work to flatten the curve of the spread of the virus. “We don’t accept these numbers,” said Fauci, referring to that between 100,000 and 240.000 deaths than expected in the model that includes measures of distance. “We want to do a lot more than that.”
