Trump warns that the death toll from the new U.S. coronavirus epidemic may exceed 100,000

US President Trump warned on Sunday that the death toll from the New coronavirus infection in the United States may exceed 100,000. The New York Times quoted an internal document from the US government as saying that the epidemic in the United States may continue to deteriorate. It is expected that by June 1, there will be 3,000 deaths in a single day, almost double the current figure.

Trump said in an interview with Fox News on Sunday that "75,000, 80,000 to 100,000 people may die". "It's terrible, we shouldn't lose anyone because of the epidemic." However, Trump also said that if he did not take action, the situation would be worse, "at least 1.2 million, 1.4 million, 1.5 million people will die, maybe more, more than 2.2 million people died."

At present, there are 68,000 deaths in the United States, and 30,000 new diagnoses are added every day. Trump also said that there will be a new coronavirus vaccine by the end of the year.

Trump acknowledged on Fox News' "Meet the People" show that the New coronavirus is more destructive than he expected, but he said parks and beaches should still be reopened and schools should resume face-to-face courses this fall. Trump said: "We are convinced that there will be a vaccine by the end of this year." He expressed his willingness to develop vaccines in other countries faster than US researchers. "If other countries develop vaccines first, I will take off my hat to pay tribute."


There are reports that Trump's statement is different from experts. Fuchs, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, once said that the vaccine will not be available until a year and a half. Whitney, the chief medical officer of the United Kingdom and England, said last month that the chance of a vaccine or other effective treatment next year is "very slim."

In addition, Trump refuted the statement that "the United States moved too slowly in the early stages of the outbreak", insisting that "we did it right." He once again accused China of failing to prevent the spread of the epidemic. "They have made a big mistake and have not admitted it. We want to send people to China to see, they are not allowed."

According to another report in the New York Times, an internal document of the US government warned that the epidemic in the United States may continue to deteriorate. It is expected that by June 1, the number of new coronavirus deaths will reach 3,000 in a single day, almost double the current figure. This document was compiled by the Federal Emergency Management Agency based on data from the CDC.

The report pointed out that before the epidemic slowed down, the Trump administration's efforts to restart the economy would make the situation worse. In New York State, where the epidemic is most severe, the cumulative number of diagnoses has increased to nearly 319,000. Governor Como formulates a plan for reopening economic activities in stages. Some retail, wholesale suppliers, construction and manufacturing industries can be reopened first, while finance, insurance, retail and administrative and real estate industries can resume operations in the second stage.
