According to the President, the US, like China, where the outbreak occurred, is “in good shape.”
President Donald Trump said on Wednesday that the US has a plan to contain the new coronavirus epidemic.
Speaking on the sidelines of the world economic forum in Davos, Switzerland, Trump said: “We have a plan and we think we will do very well. We are already doing very well. The centers for disease control is working fine. They are great professionals.”
The death toll from a new flu-like coronavirus in China rose to nine by Wednesday. In total, according to Chinese health authorities, 440 cases of infection have been confirmed. The country’s authorities are stepping up efforts to control the epidemic.
“We are in good shape, and I think China is also in good shape,” Trump told reporters before meeting with the President of semi-Autonomous Iraqi Kurdistan, Nechirvan Barzani.
