The World – The Americans
“The next two weeks will be the most severe for the United States, there will be a lot of deaths,” Trump said at a press conference of the Corona Virus Task Force in the United States on Saturday evening.
Trump stated that he would order the involvement of thousands of additional soldiers and armed forces personnel to help the country’s worst-affected states fight the HIV pandemic, noting that 1,000 new elements would be deployed to New York City.
Trump stated that the government will put 29 million doses of anti-malarial medicine in the strategic national reserve for distribution among people infected with the emerging coronavirus (COVID-19).
He said that the federal government requires the state authorities to meet the demand for medical equipment in light of the continuous shortage, while he stated that it has ordered the production of 180 million medical masks for citizens and works in this context with the company “3M”.
The US President considered that the United States must be re-opened, stressing that he does not want to continue to close public life and the economy for many months.
He stressed that the resources to fight the virus should be supplied fairly to all parts of the United States, noting that all countries, not just parts of them, should be cared for.
