Trump Says He Was Told ‘A Lot More Than Democrats’ About Coronavirus in January

President Donald Trump met at the White House Tuesday with Florida’s Republican Governor Ron DeSantis, who says he’ll announce his plans this week to start reopening his state.

DeSantis told Trump that Florida’s ability to test people for the virus now exceeds current demand and that moving to the first phase of reopening the economy should not be a heavy lift.

“We’re going to approach it in a very measured, thoughtful and data driven way,” he said during the Oval Office meeting.

Florida health authorities have attributed many of the state’s COVID-19 cases to people traveling from other hot spots, including Europe, Nile River cruises, the New York City area and Latin America.

DeSantis said he’s concerned about coronavirus cases increasing in some of the Latin American countries, such as Brazil, when their seasons change and he called upon airlines to do more to test passengers prior to boarding.

Trump said his administration is talking to the airline industry about giving passengers temperature checks and testing them for COVID-19 before flights.

For most people, the new coronavirus causes only mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough. For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia. The vast majority of people recover from the new virus.

  • In This Story: Nile River

    The Nile is a major north-flowing river in northeastern Africa, and is the longest river in Africa. The Nile is about 6,650 km (4,130 mi) long and its drainage basin covers eleven countries: Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Kenya, Ethiopia, Eritrea, South Sudan, Republic of the Sudan, and Egypt. In particular, the Nile is the primary water source of Egypt and Sudan.

    The Nile has two major tributaries – the White Nile and the Blue Nile. The White Nile is considered to be the headwaters and primary stream of the Nile itself. The Blue Nile, however, is the source of most of the water, containing 80% of the water and silt. The White Nile is longer and rises in the Great Lakes region of central Africa, with the most distant source still undetermined but located in either Rwanda or Burundi. It flows north through Tanzania, Lake Victoria, Uganda and South Sudan. The Blue Nile begins at Lake Tana in Ethiopia and flows into Sudan from the southeast. The two rivers meet just north of the Sudanese capital of Khartoum.

    The northern section of the river flows north almost entirely through the Sudanese desert to Egypt, then ends in a large delta and flows into the Mediterranean Sea. Egyptian civilization and Sudanese kingdoms have depended on the river since ancient times. Most of the population and cities of Egypt lie along those parts of the Nile valley north of Aswan, and nearly all the cultural and historical sites of Ancient Egypt are found along river banks.
