Trump warn America: There will be a lot of death,
US President Donald Trump warned citizens to prepare themselves for a rising death toll as the coronavirus pandemic spread in the country.
“There will be a lot of death unfortunately,” Trump said, stating that the government was focusing on supporting the hardest hit regions.
The numbers show that the social distancing measures put in place in the country in early March could be having an effect.
In Spain, the daily number of new coronavirus cases dropped for a second day in a row – another piece of good news that suggests the rate of the outbreak has begun to lessen in the country.
More than 7,000 infections were recorded in the last 24 hours, according to latest figures from the Spanish Health Ministry.
This is less than the number of new cases reported in the last two consecutive days.
It comes as Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez extended the country’s three-week lockdown to April 25, telling citizens: “We are in a position to bend the curve.”
Speaking at a press conference on Saturday, he warned that an eventual return to normality would “not be easy” and that a new world awaited.
“If the climb has been hard, let’s not fool ourselves, the descent will not be smoother,” he said, adding: “We are facing the great crisis of our lives.”
“The world that is coming, in which we are already, will not be like yesterday, but even less will be like the day before yesterday.”
