Easter 2020: President Trump Wants To Open Up America Once Again And Lift The Quarantine
The world is currently facing one of the worst pandemics in history. The coronavirus has been raging since the start of the year and does not look to be slowing down anytime soon. Nations have asked their people to stay at home and issued lockdowns for weeks to come.
No country is in any position to lift the lockdowns it has placed on the people except for the United States of America under President Trump. President Trump issued a statement saying that he would like to see America open again in just two weeks.
1A beautiful timeline
In a recent interview with the media, President Trump has said that he wishes to reopen the country by Easter 2020 which falls on April 12th. This is a very short deadline given that the entire nation is currently under quarantine. He added that this is being discussed and will only go through if everything goes as planned.
2Is the date too soon?
Since this date was announced by President Trump many have voiced their concern that the date is too soon. Currently, the coronavirus is spreading through the US at a rapid pace. The entire country is in lockdown mode with the streets looking like an apocalyptic movie set. Experts have weighed in on this decision.
3Can it be stopped in two weeks?
This is the burning question everyone is asking now. The date has been set for just two weeks later and while the President is adamant that it can happen, health care experts do not have faith in the short period of time given to them to get things under control.
4What does President Trump want?
According to the President, it saddens him to see the country in a lockdown state. While speaking in Town Hall he confessed that he wishes to reopen America and see it coming back to normal life as soon as possible. This is something every government wants for their country but something that needs to be planned properly.
5The state of coronavirus in the US
The first case was identified in Washington state on Jan 21st. Since then till now there have been 54,000 confirmed cases across the United States with 700 deaths.
