USA: 'Soon we'll be over that curve'- Trump on COVID-19 pandemic in US

United States, Washington DC
April 09, 2020 at 02:54 GMT +00:00 · Published

US President Donald Trump praised the efficiency of US's "aggressive strategy" to fight the coronavirus pandemic, saying the country is heading to "the light at the end of the tunnel," in a White House press briefing in Washington DC on Wednesday.

"We're seeing signs that our aggressive strategy to slow the spread is working. The number of new cases is stabilising," ensured Trump adding "the numbers are changing and they're changing rapidly. And soon we'll be over that curve. We'll be over the top and we'll be headed in the right direction. I feel strongly about that."

Trump called on the Congress to pass an additional $250 billion package "to expand the incredibly successful paycheck protection program" for the small businesses.

Commenting on the recent news on reconsidering the US funding to the World Health Organisation (WHO), US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo slammed the institution for not accomplishing its purposes.

According to Johns Hopkins University, confirmed coronavirus cases passed 424,900 in the United States on Wednesday. More than 14,000 people have died in the country after testing positive for the disease.
