Trump says ‘there’ll be more death’ from coronavirus

Washington: U.S. President Donald Trump acknowledged that reopening parts of the country would inevitably cost some Americans their lives. But he argued that the benefits outweighed the costs.

“It’s possible there will be some [deaths] because you won’t be locked into an apartment or house or whatever it is,” Trump told ABC’s David Muir in a rare network news interview. “But at the same time, we’re going to practice social distancing, we’re going to be washing hands, we’re going to be doing a lot of the things that we’ve learned to do over the last period of time.”

Donald Trump speaks as he departs the White House, on May 5, 2020, in Washington, DC en route to Arizona, where he will tour a mask factory and hold a roundtable on Native American issues.

As of Tuesday, U.S. deaths had climbed above 70,000, with total cases over 1.2 million.

“There’ll be more death, that the virus will pass, with or without a vaccine. And I think we’re doing very well on the vaccines but, with or without a vaccine, it’s going to pass, and we’re going to be back to normal,” Trump said.
