President Trump and White House Staff Update April 20th, 2020

From the information presented it appears that we have moved past the peak curve and on the downward slope. Because we have ramp up our capacity on many levels we are now focused on stockpiling extra ventilators, oil, and much more. There are some manufacturers coming online to provide things like swabs, testing and other issues.

Hints at revolutionized testing.

Much of the discussion was on current events and lists of what is happening. You can get the sense that the White House scramble is starting to settle and a plan has taken form. I'm more interested in what is going to happen tomorrow with the task force to see what economic strategies they will issue.

These are likely to be novel and bold.
