Trump administration projects coronavirus death toll will rise to 3,000 a day by June

With almost half the states in the U.S. beginning to ease social distancing restrictions last week, the warm weekend led thousands of people to go outdoors and enjoy beaches and parks, from Florida, to Texas and South Carolina, and even further south in Atlanta, Georgia.

But as economies reopen in many states, the coronavirus numbers are still looking dreadful — as the total number of confirmed COVID-19 cases neared 1.2 million, with deaths reaching more than 68,000.

The New York Times reported that it has obtained an internal document from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, that has not yet officially reached the White House coronavirus task force showing a new model predicting daily deaths in the U.S. to rise to about 3,000 per day by June.

Over the past week, 2,000 Americans died per day due to COVID-19.

In a Fox News televised town hall over the weekend, President Trump himself admitted he has seen the numbers go much higher than he expected and hoped.

“Look, we’re going to lose anywhere from 75, 80 to 100 thousand people. That’s a horrible thing, we shouldn’t lose one person over this. This should have been stopped in China.”

Amid the mounting death toll and economic devastation brought about by the pandemic, trump expressed confidence that operation warp speed can produce a vaccine in record time.

“I’m telling you, by the end of the year, I think we’re going to have a vaccine.”

As Trump continued to blame China for its alleged lack of cooperation and transparency when the outbreak began, in an interview with ABC News the U.S. Department of Homeland Security said they have proof that china intentionally hid information, and that the virus did come from a lab in China.

But was not clear if it was intentionally or accidentally leaked.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said ina hid information as well in order to hoard supplies like personal protective equipment or PPE’s.

The Trump administration has been consistent with its message that China was responsible for the spread of the coronavirus and must be held accountable.
