President Trump presses for schools to reopen

Donald Trump wants the states to reopen in his bid to bolster the economy before the elections.

Trump said that he and Fauci had disagreed on things in the past. "It is likely there will be virus somewhere on this planet that will likely get back to us".

Fauci, who heads the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, also noted that the premature lifting of lockdown may lead to another deadly outbreak of coronavirus in the United States, which has already claimed over 82,000 lives so far. You're having bedlam already in the streets. "And I don't consider our country coming back if the schools are closed", he added.

Earlier Wednesday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer demanded the Trump White House release highly anticipated guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on how states should safely reopen, which were reportedly shelved, as President Trump ramped up his push for the country to get back to work.

First officially recorded in the Chinese city of Wuhan in December 2019, the virus has infected almost 4.3 million people across the globe, and nearly 300,000 deaths have been attributed to it. "I totally disagree with him on schools", Trump said to media. Health experts agree that the country needs to increase its testing capacity before it reopens - most agree that at the low end, the country should be testing about 500,000 people every day. "I think we need to move toward beginning to reopen the economy, consistent with the recommendations of the White House Coronavirus Task Force and, of course, the advice we've been given from the healthcare professionals". He said the coronavirus has "had very little impact on young people", although there seems to be a growing concern over cases of a mysterious inflammatory syndrome in young people that is thought to be related to the virus. We can't keep going on like this.

The president's comments Wednesday were an even more direct show of disapproval.

"In the numbers that children, in general, do much much better than adults and the elderly, and particularly those with underlying conditions, but I am very careful and hopefully humble that I don't know everything about this disease, and that's why I'm very reserved in making broad predictions", the expert explained. But as the third government official in the line of succession, Pelosi would take the lead in the unlikely scenario that both Pence and Trump were killed or incapacitated by the coronavirus.

Still, Fauci has continued speaking out, prompting Sen.

The discussions were part of a Senate Committee for Health, Education, Labour and Pensions hearing on May 12.

"No, there is certainly not a confrontational relationship between me and the president", Fauci said. He hears that, he respects it.
