Donald Trump has again intimated the US may need to come to terms with the reality of more deaths, in order to start reopening the economy, as governments around the world, continue to ease out of lockdown constraints.
After backtracking on earlier indications that he would wind up the WhiteHouse Coronavirus Task Force, Trump spelled out an imaginably gruff approach to kickstarting the world’s biggest economy.
“We have to be warriors”, Trump told Fox News, when asked if Americans should expect additional deaths, as the country looks to reopen. “We cannot keep our country closed down for years”.
The President added, “Hopefully, that won’t be the case…….but it could very well be the case”.
By Thursday morning, the number of cases in the US, stands at more than 1.2 million and 73,431 deaths, with infections, still on the rise in some states.
Worldwide, there are more than 3.73 million cases and 236,831 people have died from the disease, according to the John Hopkins University Tracker
But there were more signs at the end of the tunnel for people around the world, still constrained by lockdown rules.
