There are some harrowing realities coming to America over the course of the next several days, as the coronavirus pandemic continues to push further into the springtime.
The global crisis reached America in earnest this week, with thousands upon thousands of new cases and continued arrogance from younger individuals who continue to travel, hold gatherings, and party.
This was expected. We knew that this was coming, just as we understand that more trouble is on the horizon. Things really won’t start calming down for at least another week or two, and that’s if we stick to this social distancing thing.
President Trump insinuated as much over the weekend.
“Nothing would be worse than declaring victory before the victory is won, that would be the greatest loss of all,” Trump said, acknowledging that his hopeful Easter deadline for loosening restrictions was shattered.
Trump urged Americans to continue following the “Slow the Spread” guidelines set by the Centers for Disease Control and the federal government.
“The better you do the faster this whole nightmare will end, therefore we will extend our guidelines to April 30 to slow the spread,” he said.
Trump said that on Tuesday his task force will share additional updates and data to demonstrate why the sustained guidelines were necessary.
He reminded Americans that they were still making a difference, but warned them that deaths and infections would continue rising for two weeks.
“The peak will likely hit in two weeks,” Trump said.
The President went on to say that, if all goes as planned, we would be “well on our way to recovery” by June 1st.
