(NewsReady.com) – In an upbeat press briefing April 5, President Donald Trump suggested the administration might be considering a second round of stimulus payments to help preserve the economy. He also had some encouraging news for the American people. The commander-in-chief said while the worst of the coronavirus pandemic is still to come, there are signs indicating the spread of the disease is starting to slow.
The president said, “we hope we’re seeing a leveling off in the hottest spots of them all.” His statement indicated the stay-at-home orders issued by most states are starting to work. The pattern from Europe shows the rate of new infections peaks around three weeks before the death rate does. If new infections are already slowing, which the president hopes is the case, the peak in the death rate is now within sight.
