(UnitedVoice.com) – Over the last few weeks, Americans have taken COVID-19 a lot more seriously. At least 40 governors have issued stay-at-home orders to help slow the spread of the virus. Unfortunately, the results from the ramped-up efforts aren’t going to be clear right away. President Donald Trump is warning the public that things are going to get much worse.
On April 4, the number of America’s confirmed COVID-19 cases passed 300,000. During his press conference the same day, Trump said this week and next will “be the toughest.”
At his Coronavirus Task Force White House briefing, President @realDonaldTrump said: "This will be the toughest week." He said: "There will be a lot of death, unfortunately." We'll have reaction and live coverage coming up in our special @CNNSitRoom tonight 7-10PM ET.

Dr. Deborah Birx, a member of the White House coronavirus task force, said she believes Detroit, Louisiana and New York will see their cases peak in the next week. Trump is sending 1,000 more troops to the Empire State to help out with the response. He promised to “move heaven and Earth to safeguard our great American citizens.”
If Americans continue to practice social distancing and good hygiene, we can get through this. President Trump is doing everything in his power to get the pandemic under control in the US, but everyone should do their part.
If we work together, but apart, we can flatten the curve.
