U.S. President Donald Trump and the U.S. coronavirus task force provided an update on the country's efforts to battle the COVID-19 pandemic Monday evening. During his opening remarks, Trump said "challenging times are ahead for the next 30 days," after he extended the social distancing guidelines through the month of April on Sunday. He said that if the U.S. "very vigorously" follows the guidelines they can save over over one million American lives. The United States leads the most cases of any single country with more than 160,000 confirmed. Trump said on Sunday that the guidelines in place regarding social distancing had been extended to April 30. He also said modelling estimates show the peak death rate may hit in two weeks and stressed they cannot declare victory "before the victory is won."
