The novel coronavirus pandemic poses a significant threat and people are still being warned to avoid leaving home when possible.
Last week President Trump said he wanted the US ease coronavirus restrictions and have the US economy opened back up by Easter Sunday.
But it looks like the president’s dream won’t come true.
On Sunday Trump said he would extend nationwide social distancing guidelines to April 30 to “slow the spread.”
Confirmed cases of COVID-19 keep climbing and health officials say people still need to maintain a safe distance from one another.
The nation’s top infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci says coronavirus deaths in the US could reach 100 to 200-thousand.
The virus has already killed more than two-thousand Americans.
The US has the most confirmed cases worldwide with more than 140,000 as of Monday morning.
Numerous hospitals across the country expect to run out of beds within two weeks as cases continue to rise.
More than 30-thousand people have died from the coronavirus globally, according to the World Health Organization.
People across the country and the globe are taking measures to limit the spread of coronavirus.
