Trump expects coronavirus to “go away” in April

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Monday (February 10) he believes the coronavirus outbreak will “go away” in April and said that they United States is in “great shape.”

Speaking to a meeting of the nation’s governors, Trump said, “you know, a lot of people think that goes away in April with the heat. As the heat comes in. Typically that will go away in April. We’re in great shape though. We have 12 cases, 11 cases and many of them are in good shape now.”

His comments come as Britain said on Monday the number of confirmed coronavirus cases had doubled to eight with the government declaring it a serious and imminent threat. 

Alarm over the coronavirus that emerged in Wuhan, China, in December is driven by its rapid spread and the fact that infectious disease experts cannot yet know how deadly or contagious it is.

It has killed more than 900 people, most of them in China, and has spread to at least 27 countries and territories. The two deaths outside mainland China were in Hong Kong and the Philippines.
