President Trump Urges Governors To Rank Counties By Virus Risk In Bid To Re-Open America’s Economy

1143

President Trump said in a letter to governors today that governments should soon be ranking individual counties across the U.S. as “low, medium or high” risk for coronavirus outbreaks, in what is likely a beginning stage attempt to get the wheels of the American economy turning again.

His letter says:

“My administration is working to publish new guidelines for state and local policymakers to use in making decisions about maintaining, increasing, or relaxing social distancing and other mitigation measures they have put in place.”

“This is what we envision: Our expanded testing capabilities will quickly enable us to publish criteria, developed in close coordination with the nation’s public health officials and scientists, to help classify counties with respect to continued risks posed by the virus,” it continues.

Here is Trump’s full letter to America’s Governors:

Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases stated in an interview with NBA star Steph Curry on Thursday that some parts of the country may be able to back off the social distancing guidelines that are being stressed heavily in places like New York City. 

“There are places in the country now where you want to look at carefully and say you know maybe you want to pull back a little bit on the restrictions so long as you don’t just say let it rip and say I don’t care what happens,” Fauci told Curry.

“You treat New York City a little different than you treat Nebraska,” he continued. 

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway assured the nation on Fox News Thursday that President Trump is “listening to his health professionals” and that his proposed date of Easter to get the country back on its feet is only “an example”, according to Bloomberg.

  1. Here we have actual proof that Trump is completely, totally, and unequivalently unquilified to fill the office of our Presidency. Where in God’s good name did he come up with something so stupid and so dangerous? Who is whispering this kind of outrageous and moronic crap in his ear? Immediately and true to form his supporters are cheering this; what the f*ck is wrong with these people?

    • Walt, please, please stop drinking all that you are as you are only making a fool of yourself and possibly scaring other fools into listening to your silliness. Just put your head down and go to sleep.

    • I’m a physician and what he states about relaxing individual counties in states makes absolute sense. There are hundreds, Probably thousands of counties across the United States which have a very low number of positive patients or even cases in hospitals. It’s ridiculous to shut down every single county in the nation for a problem that is focused in high density population areas. Those areas that have put in shelter rules into place did the smart thing to keep their area is safe for the time being but other areas with lower population density can certainly open back up. probably thousands of counties across the United States which have a very low number of positive patients or even cases in hospitals.

Know your epidimiology before you spout your mouth off.

  2. i am a big fan of Trump,but he has got to shut the f up about getting people back to work. Let the medical world make these decisions getting back to work to soon could make this much worse. Another thing he really needs to stop telling us what a great job he is doing ,we expect him to do a good job.

  3. John, that was so disrespectful the languish to us to anyone, weather you approve or not just pray, God will hear you.

  4. Not all counties of every state and cities are effected if it was there would be more cases. Also some counties are at a lower risk than others. Remember the U.S.A. had other pandemics some were better or worse than this I believe it’s bad but the hype makes it worse we will get over it once the medical and scientist gets a handle on this virus. Our media is on feeding frenzy. Now it’s better to try something than do nothing to get our economy moving. The Demo-Rats and the RINO’S are a big problem in this mater. In 2009-2010 there was more deaths and cases and there wasn’t the panic like this from the Swine Flu and it took the government 6 month to acknowledge there was a problem. The media was in love with Obama now the same media is suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome.

  5. The world can’t stop. Do you want the government to take over completely. This is nirvana for the democrats. Why doesn’t the world stop when the flu season hits? Everyone should have already been wasing and sanitizing. I know it’s anew virus but we do at some time have to open up economy. If you’re one of those people losing your house then you’ll be blaming Trump for that. With the Swine flu it was kept under wrap with Obama. Look how bad they handled it but the media paid no attention to it. If that was Trump the world would be falling apart. The media is the biggest problem. They are overhyping it. The democrats are using it and jumping for joy. This will pass in a few months. Why should people in rural areas go to work if there’s no cases? Common sense. Trump is doing the best he can . Remember it was Obama and his administration that left us short of everything yet democrats are blaming him and media gets mad when it’s pointed out. If a democrat gets in again then expect a lot of 3 rd world diseases because they want open borders. So who’s the idiot. At least he didn’t listen to them when he closed the borders early. Got blamed for being racist and xenophobic. The got blamed for not acting fast enough. Is anyone paying attention. The sanctuary states are the ones with the most problems. Mmmm wonder why. Cuomo could have had 16,000 ventilators but chose to spend money on solar panels and said he’ll do lottery if he had to. Now he’s blaming Trump. I’m glad Obama or Clinton isn’t in. They would lock down country permanently and use it for their benefit while telling us it’s for our own good. He is listening to his staff. He said he “hoped” to try for Easter. Hope not that it’s definitely. Nothing wrong with a little optimism instead of all this negativity the media is giving us. If this was Obama we would hear what a Greta president and he’s doing everything possible. Yeah I didn’t believe anything that crew did.
