MARCH 24, 2020

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by DailyMail:

A health expert on Monday warned that coronavirus will ‘spread widely, rapidly, terribly and millions could die’ if Donald Trump lifts lockdowns in the United States early. Tom Inglesby, a director at the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, tweeted his fears after the president said he will reconsider the nation’s social distancing policy within a matter of days.

The article goes on to state the following:

Inglesby tweeted a thread aimed at ‘anyone advising the end of social distancing,’ writing: ‘COVID would spread widely, rapidly, terribly, could kill potentially millions in the yr ahead with huge social and economic impact across the country.’

Despite Inglesby’s pleas, President Trump is set on going forward with reopening the country in a few days time.

‘America will, again, and soon, be open for business. Very soon,’ President Trump said at the daily White House coronavirus briefing Monday. ‘A lot sooner than three or four months that somebody was suggesting. Lot sooner. We cannot let the cure be worse than the problem itself. We’re not going to let the cure be worse than the problem.’

Trump was accompanied by Attorney General Bill Barr at the briefing, but not Dr. Tony Fauci, who has been rated as an expert on the coronavirus pandemic and has been advising the president on its impact to daily life.
