Trump bans hoarding, price gouging of coronavirus supplies

US President Donald Trump

According to the latest update by the Washington-based John Hopkins University, the United States has so far reported 46,450 coronavirus cases, with 590 deaths. With 139 deaths, the number of fatalities crossed 550 by Monday night.

"We will not allow anyone to exploit the suffering of American citizens for their own profit", he added. As for the World Health Organization (WHO), she warned that the United States could soon overtake Europe and become the new global epicenter of the pandemic. Almost one in every two Americans infected by novel coronavirus are from New York City which reported 5,085 news cases on Monday taking the total to 20,875. Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker said Trump was "not taking into account the true damage that this will do to our country if we see truly millions of people die".

Health officials warned that COVID-19-related casualty figures in NY are expected to jump significantly in the coming days.


Still, both metrics likely represent good news for the White House, as Trump continues to battle criticism for his early dismissals of the coronavirus' threat to Americans and current refusal to mount a more sweeping federal response.

'But if you are sitting on a warehouse with...surgical masks, you will be hearing a knock on your door, ' he added. In the past 96 hours, FEMA has also received donations of approximately 6.5 million masks. Three percent of those surveyed said they had a mixed review of Trump's performance, and 1 percent did not have an opinion.

He also announced that clinical trials for existing drugs that may prove effective against the virus will begin in NY. The head of state stated recently that states need to be doing even more to acquire their very own seriously required materials as well as while urging that the federal government was not a delivery staff. States, on the other hand, have actually been pushing the federal government to aid obtain required safety as well as breathing devices. It will be a big game-changer. "I would love to reopen by Easter", which falls this year on April 12, he then said several times, assuring, despite the reservations of many scientists and local officials, that this deadline was realistic provided that people go back to work "practicing social distancing".
