Donald Trump wants to classify the counties according to the risks linked to the coronavirus, in order to gradually lighten the rules of “social distancing” in force.

US President Donald Trump confirmed on Thursday that he wanted to alleviate the “social distancing” recommendations related to the new coronavirus based on a local risk assessment.

Classify counties according to risks

“Our extensive testing capabilities will quickly allow us to publish criteria (…) to classify counties according to the risks posed by the virus,” wrote the White House tenant in a letter to all of the country’s governors.

“Based on these data-based criteria, we will propose to classify the counties as ‘high risk’, ‘medium risk’, ‘low risk’,” he adds, without giving any timetable.

In this letter with a very measured tone, which contrasts with his initial announcements on a “reopening” of the economy by Easter (which falls this year on April 12), the American president underlines that “the battle will be still long”. The Covid-19 infection curve continues to increase in the United States with more than 75,000 cases identified and more than 1,000 deaths.
