President Trump and governors across the country are rolling out plans to reopen the U.S. economy, which has been largely shuttered for weeks to reduce the spread of the coronavirus — a move that could provide a glimmer of hope for Americans itching to get back to business as usual while cautioning that efforts to reopen will happen gradually and depend on reducing the spread of the virus first, Fox News reports.
During the White House Coronavirus Task Force briefing Thursday night, Trump unveiled a set of guidelines titled “Opening up America Again” as he declared that the U.S. was moving on to its next stage in the fight against the coronavirus and announced a bipartisan council of lawmakers dedicated to restarting the economy.
The controversial plans do not provide the details that people expected and as the nation is bubbling from stay-at-home orders and those who are taking to the streets to protest, the plans are set for each state to come up with their own orders but follow CDC and federal orders.
People are so eager to get back to their lives that they are ignoring safety and information that is being released, such as it is not a natural flu virus, it is a virus that was created in a lab in Wuhan China. I fully expect in the near future we will be told another portion of the truth, which is that China intentionally released it as a bio weapon.
There is increasing confidence that COVID-19 likely originated in a Wuhan laboratory not as a bio-weapon, but as part of China’s effort to demonstrate that its efforts to identify and combat viruses are equal to or greater than the capabilities of the United States, multiple sources who have been briefed on the details of early actions by China’s government and seen relevant materials tell Fox News.
Even with the latest release of intel people still are not content with staying at home or with following safety guidelines, it is a double edged sword that on one side holds patience and safety to figure what exactly the bio weapon is going to do to the United States and the other side is freedom to do as they please.
Fox News reported that the POTUS stated the following:
“We can begin the next front in our war, which we are calling ‘Opening Up America Again,’” Trump said during a press briefing at the White House. “To preserve the health of Americans, we must preserve the health of our economy.”
“We are not opening all at once, but one careful step at a time,” Trump said, adding that the guidelines were “based on hard verifiable data.”
**The Trump administration’s guidelines outline what individuals, businesses, health care workers and more should do over three phases in reopening the economy, with states only making it to the first phase if they see a decrease in the number of cases within their borders over 14 days.
The guidelines, which pass the decision on when to move to each phase to governors and local officials, are a reversal for Trump on comments made earlier this week that indicated he wanted to be the one deciding when the stay-at-home orders and business closures would lift.
By leaving it up to individual states to decide for themselves it opens the doors for democrats to force further orders down our throats and tightening chains around our wrists. I am sure we will see governor’s impatiently open some of their counties and other’s will lock down tighter. None of us know what the coming months are going to be but we can be certain the storm is just getting started.
