Coronavirus: US braces for 'hardest, saddest' week of outbreak

The grim milestone brought the country's death toll up to 8,503, with more than 312,000 Americans now confirmed with the virus, according to a CNN report, which cited data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.

Wallace also asked the surgeon general about Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendation that Americans wear fabric or cloth masks even as the president has said he will not likely wear one, to which Adams noted that the masks are "not a substitute for social distancing" and added that "the White House doctors and CDC are taking pains to make sure everyone is social distancing in regard to the president".

A day after U.S. president Donald Trump warned Americans to brace themselves for "a lot of death", senior administration officials reinforced the grim message on Sunday political talk shows in the US.

"And a good proportion, more than average, are staying at home even in those nine states". "The governors are intensely protective of their right to decide what's right for their states and rightly so", he said.

"It's going to be the hardest moment for many Americans in their entire lives, and we really need to understand that if we want to flatten that curve and get through to the other side, everyone needs to do their part", he said.

Absent a nationwide order, which Trump once again on Saturday declined to give, a patchwork of rules has emerged in all corners of the country that offer conflicting guidance for how citizens should protect themselves and their families from coronavirus. "There will be a lot of death".

In an interview Sunday on CBS's "Face the Nation", Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, also concluded that "this is going to be a bad week", and said the USA would "continue to see an escalation" in Covid-19 cases.

"This next week is going to look bad because we're still not at that apex", he said of NY. "We're going to hopefully be seeing that in NY very soon and that's the first sign of that plateau and coming down".

"We've seen that in Italy", Fauci said.

Much of the country is under orders to stay home, and federal officials said that have seen signs that people are listening to the message about social distancing.

Illinois' Democratic governor J.B. Pritzker skewered the Trump administration for not better preparing the nation, leaving the virus to slam the United States as it has Europe and China. "But if you can't give us 30 days, governors, give us, give us a week, give us what you can, so that we don't overwhelm our health care systems over this next week".
