WASHINGTON D.C. (FOX NEWS) – The White House coronavirus task force unveiled on Tuesday the extended guidelines to try to slow the spread of the coronavirus pandemic in the United States as a somber President Trump told Americans to brace for “a very painful two weeks.”
The extension of the social distancing guidelines comes after Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and other public health officials on the White House coronavirus task force warned that even if the U.S. were to continue to do what it was doing — keeping the economy closed and most Americans in their homes — the coronavirus could leave 100,000 to 240,000 people in the United States dead and millions infected.
Without any measures in place to mitigate the contagion’s spread, those projections jump to between 1.5 and 2.2 million deaths from COVID-19.
“It is absolutely critical for the American people to follow the guidelines,” Trump said during a daily press briefing. “It’s a matter of life and death.”
