Donald Trump US President Donald Trump said on Tuesday he would make public a key force working to reopen the US economy.
At a press conference at the White House yesterday, Trump said he would announce within days the reopening of the country, adding that travel restrictions with Europe would be lifted when the time came.
U.S. authorities have warned that the easing of isolation measures could begin as the number of people infected and killed by Covid-19 increases. Over 17 million people have lost their jobs in the U.S. over the past three weeks due to business closures, travel restrictions and other measures taken to combat coronavirus.
Many medical experts in the US government, including Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr. Deborah Birx, have warned that the premature easing of social distancing could soon cause a new wave of disease that would again require the closure of the economy, but with devastating results.
