U.S. Coronavirus Deaths Surge Past 5,000 As Trump Refuses To Issue National Stay-At-Home Order

On Wednesday, the number of COVID-19 deaths in the United States surged past 5,000 with more than 214,000 cases reported.

The news comes as US federal stockpiles of emergency medical gear are almost depleted and hospitals in desperate need of millions of masks and protective equipment.

Meanwhile, President Donald Trump said he won’t issue a national stay-at-home order because different states have different levels of coronavirus cases.

“States are different and I understand that the governor of Florida, great Gov. Ron DeSantis issued one today and that’s good, that’s great. But there are some states that are different. There are some states that don’t have much of a problem,” Trump said Wednesday afternoon, according to CNN.

The President said there should be some sort of flexibility among the states, depending on how bad individual states’ situations might be.

“You have to look — you have to give a little flexibility. If you have a state in the Midwest, or if Alaska for example doesn’t have a problem, it’s awfully tough to say close it down. We have to have a little bit of flexibility,” Trump said.
