U.S. President Donald Trump announced he would extend social and physical distancing guidelines until April 30 after initially saying he wanted to restart the economy by Easter.

NY state reported almost 60,000 cases and a total of 965 deaths on Sunday, up 237 in the past 24 hours with one person dying in the state every six minutes.

New Orleans, another hot spot of the outbreak, will run out of ventilators by April 4. "And then several days later, we will be out of beds".

"We can do better than what the predictions are", Birx said. Though each state and county is implicating their own rules, President Trump has expressed concern that the economy will be broken if those who are healthy and immune to the virus aren't allowed to return back to work. "Exactly how many more we would lose is uncertain, depending upon the efficiency of the mitigation methods".

Fauci said it was "clear" that the country would not be ready to resume business as usual after just two weeks of social distancing.

The Coronavirus pandemic is striking North America hard but the United States is facing far more cases now in comparison to the rest of the world.

He said there could be more than 2 million cases if "we have done nothing" but did not give more details on the exact number. In New York, the worst affected area in the United States, Mayor Bill de Blasio said the city may lose supplies within the week. "This is essentially in my community, in Queens, Queens, New York", he continued.

'L.A. we worry about. "Why don't you act a little bit more positive?" "We'll look at it. The cure can't be worse than the disease, and we're going to have to make some hard trade-offs", Trump's top economic adviser Larry Kudlow had said last Monday, reflecting the thinking of his economic team.

"That's bad suffering for the people of NY, which I feel myself personally, as a New Yorker", he said. Fauci said it was not implausible but that there was no way of knowing.

He added, "So when you use numbers like a million, a million and a half, two million, that nearly certainly is off the chart".

As of Sunday, more than 125,000 cases of the virus have been reported so far in the United States. "And if we need to push the date forward, we will push the date forward", Fauci said.

'We have a couple of trials that have around 200 patients now.

"We're trying to keep our heads above water without drowning", Mollette said.

A vaccine will take much longer.

"We showed him the data, he looked at the data, and he got it right away". And he said the country would be doing well if it "can hold" the number of deaths "down to 100,000".

"What you don't want is people traveling from that area to other areas of the country and inadvertently and innocently infecting other individuals", Fauci said.

What we do know, he says, is that "we've got a serious problem in NY, we've got a serious problem in New Orleans and we're going to have serious problems in other areas".
