Trump to rank US counties by coronavirus risk, may 'relax' social distancing

"And there are areas of the country ... that we really need to know more about what the penetrance is there", Fauci said on Tuesday.

President Trump has touted his administration's continued effort to combat the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Those calls go against the advice of many public health experts who say impatience would invite disaster.

President Donald Trump announced Thursday that his administration will roll out social distancing guidelines for state and local governments by categorizing counties according to their level of risk amid the coronavirus pandemic, in order to assist officials "in making decision about maintaining, increasing, or relaxing social distancing and other mitigation measures".

The poll also showed the percentage of Americans who say Trump is concerned with keeping people safe has grown slowly over the last two weeks from 34 percent to 40 percent.

"We all have to get smart", Trump said on the call, audio of which was obtained by The Associated Press news agency.

"Nonpolitical - probably the greatest thing I heard today", Trump said. Trump reportedly told Washington Gov. Jay Inslee that the federal government is the backup for help with necessary medical equipment. "We don't need a backup".

Trump said the roll-out of additional testing will enable more nuanced recommendations that would allow some lesser-impacted parts of the country to regain a sense of normalcy sooner.

Trump announced Thursday that he would visit Norfolk, Virginia, on Saturday to see off the USNS Comfort, the 1,000-bed hospital ship heading to assist NY in responding to the virus.

Public health experts have also warned that attempting to rush the USA back to normal could exacerbate the impact of the pandemic across the country.

But at the same briefing, taskforce members Anthony Fauci urged caution.

The US has struggled to employ a robust system of testing for the virus due to early stumbles by the federal government.

Trump has said he would like people in parts of the country that have not experienced massive outbreaks to be able to go back to work, perhaps around April 12.

Without a robust system of testing, the United States does not have a full picture of the scale of the coronavirus outbreak within its borders. "We'll give it some more time if we need a little more time, but we need to open this country up". On Thursday, he confirmed more than 3 million Americans are now out of work due to coronavirus shutdowns. Comparatively, South Korea, which has a population of about 51 million, had completed 357,896 tests as of Wednesday, per reports from the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
