Trump called the failure to close borders early in the spread of the disease one of the “great tragedies” of the disease’s early days. Trump criticized the organization for allegedly not obtaining accurate information about the scope of the problem in China and for recommending that countries not close their borders as a mitigation measure. President Trump on Tuesday encouraged Americans to do their part to help slow the spread of COVID-19 but warned that “this will be a painful week” for the country. He’s been “displaying mild symptoms” of COVID-19 but is otherwise in good health and working from home, his office said in a statement. He “will not be immediately returning to work” based on “the advice from his medical team,” the prime minister’s office said in a statement. To date, the federal government has shipped out more than 8,000 ventilators, he said, and an additional 10,000 are reportedly “ready to go.” The president said another 2,200 ventilators will become available on Monday.
