A key disease expert on President Donald Trump's coronavirus task force says "100,000 to 200,000" U.S. citizens may die of COVID-19.
During an interview on CNN, Dr. Anthony Fauci added the U.S. could have "millions of cases" overall. However, he said those numbers could change.
He said: "I just don't think we really need to make a projection when it's such a moving target that you can so easily be wrong."
Fauci added he wanted to continue stay-at-home orders in an attempt to further flatten the curve.
President Trump has said he would "love to have the country opened up" by Easter — April 12th. Fauci said the decision to ease restrictions needs to be based on a solid understanding of where hot spots are and whether the spread of the virus is under control.
