Dr. Fauci against reopening; Pence to 'keep distance' from Trump

Dr. Fauci against reopening; Pence to 'keep distance' from Trump”

First officially recorded in the Chinese city of Wuhan in December 2019, the virus has infected almost 4.3 million people across the globe, and nearly 300,000 deaths have been attributed to it.

President Donald Trump's news conference Monday was meant to celebrate his administration's long in-gestation success at expanding testing for the coronavirus.

The impetus behind that effort is Dr. Deborah Birx, according to the Daily Beast and a report in the Washington Post.

President Trump, in an interview that aired Thursday morning with Fox Business Network's Maria Bartiromo, said he believes his political critics want a slower reopening of the economy not due to the coronavirus threat, but to hurt him politically in the November election.

"There is a real risk that you will trigger an outbreak that you may not be able to control", he later added, warning that would not only cost lives, but could even set them back on the road to trying to get economic recovery.

"Fauci has previously been at odds with the president over the government's response to the coranavirus outbreak".

Questions about the United States coronavirus death count have taken hold inside the White House, officials familiar with the matter say, as President Donald Trump and his aides discuss whether figures used by administration to determine mortality rates and death projections are reliable indicators for plotting a path forward.

"I would just note that that's his personal decision to make that", McEnany said. And many others pointed out that the president does not speak for Asian Americans. "I think they should", the President told reporters at the White House.

There has been worries that the numbers haven't accurately reflected the situation from Birx who reportedly said that she thinks there's a possibility they could be inflated. She said she was sufficiently distant from the reporters in the room who were wearing masks themselves.

As President Trump said on Monday, despite clear evidence to the contrary, "all throughout the country, the numbers are going down". Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Vice President Mike Pence and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin listen.

The remarks by Los Angeles County Health Director Barbara Ferrer, reported by the Los Angeles Times, came as other major USA cities and states begin to ease the sweeping restrictions imposed weeks ago in the face of the coronavirus pandemic. President Donald Trump: "I'm not saying it specifically to anybody".

"We don't know everything about this virus and we really better be pretty careful, particularly when it comes to children", he said.

There have been more than 1.3 million cases of Covid-19 in the USA, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. While the president said that the USA has the "greatest capacity", the country leads in raw testing numbers but lags behind several countries including Iceland and Italy in testing per capita. But his latest plan for restarting still does not allow nail salons, tattoo parlors or gyms. Chinese Americans are the most angry of all.
