WATCH: President Trump’s coronavirus task force briefing for Sunday; distancing extended thru April

Trump is speaking now, I’ll add updates about what he said already:



He has announced that he is extending the lockdown period. Here’s that video:

Another one:

The journalists will obsess on that one.


The press conference has ended. The two big takeaways are that the social distancing will extend until the end of April, and Dr. Anthony Fauci stood by his prediction that we’re look at between 100,000 and 200,000 deaths from the virus. Wow.
