The US hits a grim new record as Trump continues to preach optimism\\\

 The US is now the world leader in coronavirus infections, with more than 100,000 as of Friday. That includes more than 25,000 in New York City, where hospitals are already overwhelmed.
Yet it is impossible to reconcile the messages being blasted to the country on competing platforms by President Donald Trump, on the one hand, and by the nation's top infectious disease doctor, on the other.

  1. It is very difficult to know exactly what to do, and although I am not necessarily backing Trump's word, he has to be pragmatic. It might be impossible to contain the virus in the USA, unless there is a nationwide lockdown for 3 months or mroe. But this is not possible, i.e. it is impossible to hermetically seal the country - people still need to go out for basic food needs, and work that serves the rest of population. There is the idea of herd immunity, which will be arrived at one way or another
