Trump's pronouncement came as the White House and Congress headed toward a deal to inject roughly $2 trillion into the economy to stave off a deep recession, and aimed to get the economy up and running following widespread disruption from the global pandemic.

Trump is under pressure to restart parts of the moribund economy, stalled by skyrocketing unemployment as workers are urged to stay home and companies shut their doors.

On Wednesday, six deaths were reported from Hubei province, taking the death toll in China to 3,287 people and total number of cases to 81,285.

"It's nobody's fault, certainly not in this country", he said. "Somebody in the fake news said one of the governors said, 'Oh, we need Tom Brady.' I said yeah, he meant that in a positive way".

The president has pushed his vision for a period of transition in which pandemic mitigation takes place at the same time as an economic re-opening.

Trump wrote that new coronavirus testing capabilities would allow his administration to identify "high-risk, medium risk and low-risk" counties.

McCaul, the ranking member on the House Foreign Relations Committee, said that "there were several red flags in his past with respect to his relationship with China".

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D), whose state has become the country's epicenter of the crisis with almost 31,000 cases, said Wednesday that coronavirus may peak in New York on April 15 - three days after Trump is hoping to see "packed churches all over our country" for Easter service. He did not provide details on dates in his letter.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, an immunologist and key member of the White House coronavirus task force, told NPR's Noel King on Morning Editionthat increased testing could help parts of the country that aren't now experiencing outbreaks to trace and isolate cases.

He has falsely claimed that testing, a key to identifying and containing the spreading virus, was widely available when it was not, shifting only this week to boasts about tests having finally ramped up.

"To be honest, we don't have all that data now uniformly throughout the country to make those determinations", Fauci said.

"You've got to understand that you don't make the timeline, the virus makes the timeline", Fauci told CNN Wednesday.

Trump announced Thursday that he would visit Norfolk, Virginia, on Saturday to see off the USNS Comfort, the 1,000-bed hospital ship heading to assist NY in responding to the virus.

Trump has also overstated Democrats' response to the travel ban, accusing Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Joe Biden, the putative Democratic presidential nominee, of opposing it.

"To the degree that it bought us time, we did not take advantage of that time", said Jeffrey Levi, a public health expert at George Washington University, who said the coronavirus had already spread to other countries when Trump imposed the ban.

The Comfort's sibling, the hospital ship USNS Mercy, has been deployed to Los Angeles to offer its capacity there.
