The national coronavirus task force will hold its regular press briefing about the virus Monday in Washington D.C. The stream is slated to begin at 4 p.m., but delays are possible.
At Sunday’s briefing, President Donald Trump said he is extending lockdown measures through April 30.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, the government’s top infectious disease expert, said the U.S. could experience more than 100,000 deaths and millions of infections from the pandemic, according to the Associated Press. The U.S. had more than 140,000 COVID-19 cases reported by Monday morning, with more than 2,500 deaths.
COVID-19, the respiratory disease caused by the new virus, stands for coronavirus disease 2019. The disease first appeared in late 2019 in Wuhan, China, but spread around the world in early 2020, causing the World Health Organization to declare a pandemic in March.
