The figures from the university, considered a reference in the subject, come after President Donald Trump said earlier that "the data suggests that across the country we have passed the peak of new cases," and that on Thursday he would announce his plan to 'reopen' the United States gradually".

The US president told state governors on Thursday that they must make "their own decisions" about the reopening of their respective states in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, indicating that they could end the lockdown of their territories before May 1 if they want.
