In his daily briefing on Thursday, President Trump declared "the next front in our war - opening up America again".

But when pressed repeatedly on which states were among the 29 he listed, the president balked at offering up any names, instead choosing to leave the question of when-or if-to announce their state's readiness to individual governors.

California Governor Gavin Newsom speaking 24 hours earlier spoke a similar message, stating a gradual reopening of businesses and government bodies will depend on a series of public health benchmarks and the preparedness of schools and businesses.

French President Emmanuel Macron expressed his support for the WHO and said the organization must play a "central role" as part of an "ambitious and coordinated global response" to the virus crisis.

Trump on Thursday promised governors they would be handling the process themselves, with help from the federal government, the BBC reported. "We will supply whatever you need, whatever you need".

"I think that will be a very exciting time indeed", he said.

Mr. Tedros, an Ethiopian microbiologist, said in his remarks that the "WHO is reviewing the impact of our work of any withdrawal of USA funding and we will work with partners to fill any gaps and ensure our work continues uninterrupted".

The US has by far the highest number of coronavirus cases and deaths worldwide- with more than 600,000 cases and 26,000 deaths.

"This decision is unsafe, illegal and will be swiftly challenged", House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the top Democrat in the nation's Congress, said in a statement on Wednesday.

The game is not over yet.' Corona Virus Task force convenor Dr. Deborah Brix said that as planned, states could allow employees to return to work in a phased manner, working in these three phases.

For vulnerable populations, life can begin to normalize, but with social distancing for those people.

The head of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, Robert Redfield, however, said that the agency will continue its ties with the WHO.
