Trump announced on Sunday(3/29) that Federal social distancing regulations will be extended to April 30th after being advised by many experts. Only days before the announcement, President Trump predicted an end to the distancing by Easter.
So what changed his mind?
U.S. numbers are rising by the thousands. In a previous press conference, Trump addressed this as "a tribute to our testing"; yet, with people not taking precautions COVID-19 has continued to spread. The U.S. is now leading the world in case numbers.
With the extension to social distancing Trump also listed many cures being tested such as hydroxychloroquine and a blood treatment. Both are being used in New York, the state most affected by the virus.
