White House holds press conference as U.S. confirmed cases rise to 290,000 | USA TODAY 1


White House coronavirus task force provides an update.

Americans know they are facing a threat, but they aren't sure exactly how it may impact the economy, the country's politics or society at large. Public health officials can't say when social distancing or quarantines will end. Some people don't know whether they'll have a job to go back to or a business to reopen. No matter how often someone washes their hands, they can't ensure they won't get sick.

    300.000 now. No nationwide quarantine, no all airtravel banned, no closed borders, sad.

      @Ruchira De Silva “why can’t you trust the blind ” cant trust the people who can’t say what they mean like you

    • Luke Wilson you are wrong if you isolate the chain is broken I will believe the doctors over you any day

    • Leo Merigliano He was thinking of doing that with New York but the great governor Cuomo said that would be unconstitutional.

    • Larry DeBoer I would like to know what doctor has said this ? As long as one person is infected it will continue spread just like it is now maybe do a little bit of research rather then listening to government and media outlets and you will see for your self I’m not going to comment anymore I’ve said my piece hopefully you are right and I’m wrong but it’s better to be prepared for worse then just hopping for the best stay safe and hopefully you can call me out in a few weeks and say I told you so

  7. Why did he say there would be less death if this wasnt done??

    • Because hes a babbling bafun and all his speeches is a studdering ignorance

      You try giving a daily press conference. Most people couldn’t wrap their mind around every detail of what needs to be discussed.

    • Snowflake msm screamed holy hell that Trump wasnt daily updating, bcz Pence was assigned as Task Force Dir. So Trump began daily updates. Take note DNC demands Trump comment on every govt eyeblink – hunting exceptions to svc their TDS and all their hope to ‘catch a mistake’ for impeaching.

  8. We’re a strong Nation will get through this, and at the end of the day we’ll know who is the deadweight and who to get rid of

    • G Campbell Yeah, this is a Democrat virus. It’s for Democrats, created by Democrats, it can’t get republicans. Also, at the end of the day… we’ll know who to “get rid of”.

    • @G Campbell They’re all on the same team idiot. Democrat and Republican. You simple, simple fool.

      Rob Swan That was uplifting Lee obnoxious

      Next time they write a Constitution we need to put in a clause that it takes 100,000 dead people before a POS administration can be removed from power. That will make sure to protect Democracy. You betcha. For sure!

      “democrat virus” lol such stupidity. I don’t understand how some people can post that kind of thing without feeling ashamed by their intellectual mediocrity.

    Lol everything’s so obscure and ambiguous.. except the names of every sports boss in America! Them he lists one after another!

      this guy is going to kill over a million people by May. I did the math and it matches the current trajectory. If he opens up the economy again anytime soon it will be closer to 2 million deaths within a few months.

  10. How would a hospital know how much they’ll need without testing?

  11. A “small restaurant” with 120 seats

  12. Imagine living on Mars…

  13. Nice OJ Simpson black glove in the thumbnail. Who’s brilliant idea was that? 😂

  14. You can make 100 masks with paper town 2 robber band and 1 paper staple..
    Ban co the lam hang 100 cai khau trang bang giay paper town 2 soi giay thung va 1 cai bam giay.

  15. Why they aren’t working and talking more on stop the spread? I don’t understand!!! They are only talking about PPE and ventilators and hospital bed!

    Everything is ‘tremendous’, ‘incredible’, ‘fantastic’ and ‘like never before’

      he is stupid… #STAYATHOME use glasses and masks (mask can be usable only 4 hours)

    • Yeah. It’s PR talk. The only thing he knows. This is our fault, as Americans. He is us. Fatter and more ignorant every year.

  17. I loved his wing today 😂😂

    Maybe it will be a good moment to start with a real public health system.

    The true test of leadership is how well you function in a crisis… God bless America…

  20. If there wasn’t so much teary eyed babbling and story telling these press conferences would be a lot more informative.
