Covid-19: Trump backs off NY quarantine, CDC advises self-restraint

Covid-19: Trump backs off NY quarantine, CDC advises self-restraint”

"After discussions with the president, we made it clear, and he agreed, that it would be much better to do what's called a strong advisory", Fauci said on CNN's "State of the Union".

President Trump says it has been determined a quarantine of NY and parts of New Jersey and CT will be unnecessary after floating the idea earlier Saturday.

"What I do think is: we are gonna kill this virus".

The governor urged health care providers to brace themselves for a "rolling apex", a wave beginning first in New York City and rippling out from Westchester County and Long Island before eventually reaching upstate.

"We might not have to do [the quarantine]", Trump told reporters Saturday, "but there's a possibility that sometime today we'll do a quarantine - short-term two weeks for NY, probably, New Jersey and parts of CT".

Asked whether he thought the United States economy would get back on its feet by April 12th, Easter Sunday, Trump said, "We'll see what happens".

Cuomo noted that a tri-state quarantine would dramatically affect the national economy, telling Cabrera, "I think it would paralyze the economy". I do know we will kill this virus. I don't know if she knows what's going on, but all she does is sit there and blame the federal government. "Trucks have to come in, food has to come in, mail has to come in".

-Gov. Cuomo says trajectory of cases continues to go up.

More news: Mnuchin: "We're looking at sending Americans checks immediately" during coronavirus crisis

Governor Andrew Cuomo responded by saying that quarantining the state of NY would be "preposterous" and "anti-American". From March 16-19, the number of hospitalizations in the state doubled every two days.

Cuomo said he supported the travel advisory and that the advice was "nothing that we haven't been doing" already. But Trump said earlier on Saturday that he was considering one after speaking with the governor of Florida, who expressed concern over New Yorkers traveling South.

Mr Trump himself has residences in NY and Florida.

"I haven't had those conversations", the governor said at a separate news briefing Saturday in NY. We don't want that.

"The president did very seriously consider it", Mnuchin said in an interview with Fox News Sunday. "Heavily infected", Mr Trump said.

"This is off the charts", she said. "President Trump can actually do that".

"The trajectory of Detroit is unfortunately even more steep than that of NY", said Dr Teena Chopra, the medical director of infection prevention and hospital epidemiology at the Detroit Medical Center.

When asked about legal authority for quarantine, the incoming White House chief of staff, Mark Meadows, said officials are "evaluating all the options right now".
