President Donald Trump announced in his daily White House press briefing that the social distancing guidelines issued through the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are being extended through April 30. Based on the latest estimates, Trump said: 

“The peak in death rates is likely to hit in two weeks.”

He added:

“Nothing would be worse than declaring victory before the victory is won.”

The president was joined Sunday by Dr. Anthony Fauci, who also appeared on CNN earlier in the morning and discussed the wide range between the “a worst case scenario and a best case scenario.” 

Fauci said in his interview with Jake Tapper:

“It’s difficult to present, but looking at what we’re seeing now, I would say between (100,000) and 200,000 cases, but I don’t want to be held to that. Excuse me, deaths.” 

Fauci added:

“I mean, we’re going to have millions of cases, but I just don’t think that we really need to make a projection when it’s such a moving target.” 

U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention The initial social distancing guidelines directed by President Donald Trump and issued by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have been extended nationally through April 30, 2020.
