President Donald Trump on Saturday ASKED citizens to remain calm after the first U.S. death from coronavirus was confirmed in Washington state.
The president, flanked by his top health officials, said Americans should not be alarmed by the latest news. “If you are healthy, you will probably go through a process and you’ll be fine,” he said. Fifteen people have recovered from the virus, he added.
Trump also asked that media and politicians “not do anything to incite the panic, because there is no reason to panic at all. This is something that is being handled professionals.”
