United States President, Donald Trump has declared that the COVID-19 pandemic may get worse.
Trump spoke on Tuesday at a White House news briefing.
He observed rising cases in Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia and Texas.
Trump said coronavirus will “probably, unfortunately, get worse before it gets better, something I don’t like saying about things, but that’s the way it is”.
The American leader urged citizens to wear masks where physical distancing was impossible.
“Get a mask. Whether you like the mask or not, they have an impact. They will have an effect and we need everything we can get,” he noted.
The U.S. is the worst-hit country with 145,000 casualties.
The total number of cases has hit 4 million.
