WASHINGTON DC–In a press conference on March 29, Pres. Donald Trump extended the federal social distancing guidelines until April 30.

The announcement came just days after the president told reporters that he hoped to see churches full on Easter, April 12, despite COVID-1 cases climbing around the country. He called the wish for the country to be up and running by April 12, “aspirational.”

“I want our life back again,” he said from the White House Rose Garden.

Addressing the potential death rates the president said it would be good if the country could keep deaths at 100,000. Projection models have speculated that the death toll could go as high as 2.2 billion in the US. 

“It’s a horrible number. We all together have done a very good job,” he stated. 

Dr. Anthony Fauci, who has been leading the medical team for the federal government said he predicts 100,000-200,000 deaths if the country does not do all it can to mitigate the crisis. 

At the time of the press conference, 2,400 Americans had died of COVID-19.
