US President Donald Trump has raised his expectations about the death toll from the emerging Corona Virus pandemic in the United States.
Washington – Sputnik. Trump said on an occasion at the White House that he “hopes for less than one hundred thousand deaths, which is higher than his previous estimates when he indicated between 60 and 70 thousand on Monday,” according to “Reuters”.
Trump stressed, however, that “it was possible and should have stopped the spread of the virus at its source,” referring to China.
He continued: “We have now started a gradual process to reopen the country, thanks to our ability to flatten the epidemic curve, slow the spread and broaden our capabilities in the health sector.”
Expectations about the possible outcome of the pandemic in the United States have changed several times, and Trump has previously warned that the Corona virus could kill 100,000 to 200,000 Americans, but he said in press statements last month that this number would likely range from 60,000 to 70 thousand.
The United States is the first country in the world in terms of the number of new cases of coronavirus with 121,6432 cases, as well as in terms of death toll from the disease with 65,598 cases.
