Donald Trump says he will soon be announcing a second coronavirus task force, creating a council to focus on re-opening the country after the worst of the pandemic passes. “We will be announcing that in a short while. Probably Tuesday,” Mr Trump told reporters during the daily coronavirus task force briefing. The US president said he would be announcing the launch of what he dubbed the “Opening our Country” task force “as soon as possible”. With the US economy reeling and job losses soaring, Mr Trump has been itching to reopen the country, drawing alarm from health experts who warn that doing so too quickly could spark a deadly resurgence that could undermine current distancing efforts. Experts on Friday insisted that the US was not ready to lift social distancing measures.
