President Donald Trump has said corona virus guidelines such as social distancing will be extended across the US until at least 30 April.
He said that they could be relaxed as early as Easter, which falls in mid-April.
In next 2 weeks highest number of death rate could be hit. He appeared to be referring to peak infection rates that experts fear could overwhelm hospitals.
White House medical adviser Dr Anthony Fauci had earlier warned that the virus could kill up to 200,000 Americans. He said that it was “entirely conceivable” that millions of Americans could be infected.
