President Trump wrote on Twitter that statistics showed the United States has passed the peak of COVID-19 disease. Thus, the nation’s leader would announce new measures for reopening the economy.

Donald Trump suggested in his recent tweet that the US copes very well with coronavirus, and the nation has passed the peak of infections.

Mr Trump’s announcement followed talks throughout Wednesday with American business leaders. Many of whom warned that a dramatic increasing in testing and the wider availability of protective equipment would be needed to safely resume their operations, participants said.
