Despite Grim Projections, Trump Resists National Quarantine


(AP) – President Donald Trump is warning that Americans face a grim few weeks ahead, with tens of thousands likely killed by the new coronavirus. But he is resisting issuing a national stay-at-home order to stem the spread of the disease. Trump said earlier this week that he and members of his administration have discussed a stay-at-home order, but called such a move “pretty unlikely” for now.

Surgeon General Jerome Adams on Wednesday noted in a series of television interviews that the U.S. federalist system leaves much of the authority on how to properly respond to catastrophes to individual state governors and local officials.
