Donald Trump found out one nasty coronavirus surprise that left him shaking his head
President Trump is marshalling all the resources of the federal government to stop the spread of the coronavirus.
But the President is facing some unexpected challenges.
And now Donald Trump found out one nasty coronavirus surprise that left him shaking his head.
On Tuesday, coronavirus task force member Dr. Deborah Brix announced that the New York Metropolitan area was the new epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak in the United States.
Half of all the coronavirus cases in America are recorded in New York.
At the daily press briefing, Dr. Brix announced new recommendations that because of the high rate of infection in the New York area anyone from that region traveling to other parts of the country should self-quarantine for two weeks.
The following day, New York Health Commissioner Dr. Howard Zucker contradicted this warning and told possibly infected New Yorkers to feel safe venturing out into other communities.
“I would not follow that. I believe you should follow the guidance in general, you should social distance,” he said, according to Wall Street Journal reporter Jimmy Vielkind.
Right now Americans are looking for accurate information and consistent messaging.
The New York Health Commissioner undermining President Trump’s task force only serves to create confusion and could end up costing lives.
President Trump’s coronavirus task force consists of the top experts in the world.
Their guidelines are designed to save lives and make sure America can defeat this viral outbreak as quickly as possible so the economy can reopen for business.
