(CNN) https://livestream.com/accounts/25723746/events/8522569/videos/203569510 President Trump repeatedly stressed that the US “has to go back to work” but noted that people should still practice social distancing as best they can.
Trump during a news conference Thursday that he is “hearing it loud and clear from everybody” that people want to go back to work.
“We may take sections of the country, we may take large sections of our country that aren’t so seriously affected and do it that way, but we have to start the process pretty soon," Trump said.
Trump also said more information will come early next week in terms of his plans.
Some context: Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, said Wednesday night "You don't make the timeline, the virus makes the timeline," when asked how long the novel coronavirus could affect daily life in the US.
"You've got to be realistic," Fauci told CNN Wednesday.
