  • President Donald Trump listens to a question at a coronavirus news conference in Washington DC

WASHINGTON-President Donald Trump said Wednesday, he would like to reopen the US economy with a "big bang" but that the death toll from the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, commonly known as the novel coronavirus, needs to be on the downslope before that can happen.

Trump did not give a timeframe on when he would like to reopen the economy, but his chief economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, said on Tuesday it was possible this could happen in four to eight weeks.

Deborah Birx, the White House's coronavirus response coordinator, said at a briefing Saturday that New York, Detroit and Louisiana are the nation's current centers of the outbreak, but D.C., Colorado and Pennsylvania are becoming emerging hotspots.

The White House is expected to soon announce the formation of a second coronavirus task force, this one devoted to getting the USA economy going again when the time is right, a senior administration official said on Thursday (April 9). The number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in the DMV surged to more than 10,000 by Wednesday evening, The Washington Post reported Wednesday.

Trump and his team have been heartened by signs that the death toll among Americans may fall far short of projections that he outlined last week, indicating between 100,000 and 240,000 could die.

Mr Trump said earlier this week that he was considering the idea as he ponders when to bring back greater economic activity and rebound from a virus-induced collapse in the economy that has left millions jobless.
