"Our country wasn't meant to be shut down," he added.

Trump, at the daily media briefing by the White House coronavirus task force, said a large team is working on what the next steps will be in order to end the virtual shutdown of the world's largest economy.

Deaths as a result of an extended economic crisis could exceed those caused by the virus in the United States, according to the president who stated that the mortality rate for the coronavirus is less than 1% ” much lower than had been anticipated.

"America will again and soon be open for business," said Trump, explaining it will not be the three-to-four-month timeframe predicted by some who warn the dire threat from the virus will not recede quickly.
