Watch live: Coronavirus Task Force gives update on response
President Trump and members of the Coronavirus Task Force, charged with leading the U.S. response to the coronavirus pandemic, are holding a briefing Tuesday. A growing number of governors are issuing orders demanding their residents remain in their homes as the death toll from the coronavirus in the country surpassed 3,000 overnight, but President Trump said such a move nationwide is doubtful.
The White House handed reporters the 30-day recommendations for slowing the spread of the virus, with no new recommendations. The president extended an Easter target to the end of April. The president said this will be a “very, very painful” two weeks.
“This is gonna be a painful — a very, very painful — two weeks,” the president said.
