President Donald Trump announced on Sunday that the White House would be extending its social distancing guidelines through April 30, from an initial 15-day timeline when they were implemented on March 16.

“The peak in death rate is likely to hit in two weeks,” Trump said. “Nothing would be worse than declaring victory before the victory is won.”

The announcement comes after Trump said last week he hoped to open up the country by Easter, which falls on April 12, saying it was a “beautiful” time to ease up on the social distancing guidelines that are aimed at slowing the spread of the coronavirus to prevent overwhelming the health care system, but that have hurt the economy.

Trump said Sunday that the White House task force would be sharing further data and finalized plans on Tuesday, and that he expects by June 1, “ we will be well on our way to recovery.”
