The U.S. Presidential Administration, Donald Trump, is developing new principles of social distance based on the risk level of coronavirus infection in certain districts.
In a letter from President Trump to “America’s governors”, he thanked state leaders for “intensifying efforts to help America fight this unprecedented global pandemic. “There’s still a long battle ahead, but our efforts are already paying dividends,” he continued, noting that “the day will soon come when Americans can resume “normal economic, social and religious life,” FoxNews reports.
Trump said the administration is “working to publish new guidelines for public and local policymakers to use in making decisions to maintain, increase or mitigate social distance and other mitigation measures they have taken.
The president said the White House expects enhanced testing capabilities “to make public the criteria developed in close coordination with the country’s public health officials and scientists to help classify counties with respect to ongoing risks associated with the virus.
“In line with these data-driven criteria, we will propose guidelines for classifying high, medium or low-risk districts. “This new information will trigger the next phase of our war against the invisible enemy.”
Note that the U.S. has overtaken China in terms of coronavirus infestation. According to the latest data, there are about 84 thousand infected in the country, more than 1000 people died.
