Published

US President Donald Trump has told his fellow Americans to brace for a “hell of a bad two weeks” ahead as the White House projected there could be 100,000 to 240,000 deaths in the US from Covid-19 pandemic despite all the measures.

Public health officials emphasised that the number could be fewer if people across the country follow social distancing. “We really believe we can do a lot better than that,” said Dr. Deborah Birx, the coordinator of the White House coronavirus task force. That would require all Americans to take seriously their role in preventing the spread of disease, she said.

Trump called American efforts to curb the spread of the coronavirus “a matter of life and death” and urged the public to heed his administration’s guidelines. He predicted the country would soon see a “light at the end of the tunnel” in the pandemic that has killed more than 3,500 US nationals and infected over 185,000 more.

“I want every American to be prepared for the hard days that lie ahead,” Trump said. “This is going to be one of the roughest two or three weeks we’ve ever had in our country,” Trump added. “We’re going to lose thousands of people.”

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the government’s top medical expert, said the numbers are “sobering” and urged people to “step on the accelerator” with their collective mitigation efforts. “We are continuing to see things go up,” Fauci said. “We cannot be discouraged by that because the mitigation is actually working and will work.”

As for the projection of 100,000-240,000 deaths, Fauci of the National Institutes of Health said: “We don’t accept that number, that that’s what it’s going to be. … We want to do much better than that.”

It’s not only social distancing that could make a difference but also the desperate attempts by hospitals around the nation to prepare for a barrage of seriously ailing patients. The better-prepared hospitals are, the greater the chances of lives being saved.
