Donald Trump to open the states in three phases, similar to that of India. The USA currently has 654,301 confirmed cases and 32,186 deaths due to COVID-19, and the president of the states has suggested some parts could reopen this month.
“America wants to be open and Americans want to be free”, he said. “A national shutdown is not a sustainable long-term solution as this affects the economy severely”.
Phase one includes previous lockdown measures like avoiding non-essential travel and public meetings. But large venues such as restaurants, holy places and sports venues “can operate under strict physical distancing protocols”.
If there is no evidence of increase in the cases Phase two comes into the scene. This allows public transportation and reopening of the schools and restaurants with limited number of people.
Under Phase three if the cases start to decrease, public interactions and going to the worksites will resume. The bars and malls can also increase their number of customers steadily.
