As States Begin to Reopen, Trump Administration Releases TERRIFYING New Predictions

From coast to coast, Americans are beginning to seek out whatever our “new normal” is going to be in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

No one alive has ever experienced anything quite like this, with the only real modern example to be had occurring over a century ago, during a time before instant communication and modern medical science.  This isn’t only a novel strain of coronavirus, but a novel situation from top to bottom.

States such as Texas and Tennessee have begun to slowly ease restrictions on what businesses can be open during these trying times, but they do so under a cloud of uncertainty that even the Trump administration can’t seem to put a positive spin on.

The latest warning from the White House is simply horrifying.

The Trump administration is projecting that the United States could see up to 3,000 deaths per day from the coronavirus by June 1, a person familiar with internal documents confirmed to The Hill on Monday.

Data and modeling from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) show that the federal government is expecting the number of cases and deaths associated with the pandemic to continue mounting, even as President Trump and other officials push for states to lift restrictions meant to slow the spread of the virus in favor of reopening businesses.

The New York Times, which was the first to report on the projections, posted the documents, which show the CDC and Federal Emergency Management Agency forecast a steady increase in the number of new cases per day.

The projections show the U.S. reaching 200,000 new cases daily by June 1 with a daily death toll of roughly 3,000. The number of daily cases peaked in late April at just over 30,000. The current daily death toll varies, but typically falls between 1,500 and 2,000.

Without a vaccine or a widely-successful treatment plan, COVID-19’s only weakness is exposed when we practice social-distancing, essentially starving the virus of victims.
