The White House predicts there will be about 100,000-240,000 deaths in the US due to the corona virus pandemic, even if preventive measures are imposed.

This is not the first time specialized scientists have given such serious data.

However, Dr. Deborah Birx, coordinator of the White House corona virus response team, said on Tuesday that the number may not be so high if every American is determined to do everything possible.

Therefore, “the number of deaths may be lower than that,” according to female experts.

During a press conference on March 31, President Trump acknowledged that “America will have two very difficult weeks”. His tone was darker than in the previous press conference. “This will be two very, very painful weeks.”

“I want every American to be prepared for the hard days ahead. We will spend very difficult weeks.”

“There will be light at the end of the tunnel,” the president added.

“Our hope is to bring this number down to the lowest level possible,” said Dr. Anthony Fauci, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the White House daily press conference on coronavirus, to speak.

These numbers “are what we need to anticipate, but that doesn’t mean that we have to accept,” according to the Guardian.

President Donald Trump on March 29 admitted that the number of deaths from corona virus infection in the country could reach 100,000 or more. He emphasized that if the US kept the death rate below 100,000, it was “we did very well”, according to CNN.

The number of deaths from the new strain of corona virus in the US increased by more than 3,550 on March 31, officially surpassing the number in China, the country of Covid-19 outbreak, according to AP.

The United States has recorded 175,067 cases of Covid-19, according to statistics from Johns Hopkins University, and is the country with the highest number of cases in the world.

Countries with the next highest number of cases are Italy with 101,739 cases, Spain with 94,417 and China 83,059 cases.

What happened in the middle of New York has turned the city’s big exhibition center into a field hospital and a similar temporary hospital has been set up in Central Park to reduce the burden on the city’s medical force. .

Billie Jean King tennis complex which hosts the U.S. tennis tournament Open has also been converted into a hospital.

The state of New York remains the epicenter of the epidemic in the US with 1,550 deaths, mostly in the New York City area.

On March 30, the USNS Comfort military medical ship with 1,000 beds was deployed to New York.

From March 31, the military medical vessel will receive treatment of patients with Covid-19 infection in the city to help reduce the health system load.
