US President Donald Trump has warned Americans that there would be tough times ahead as the surge of coronavirus continues in the country.
The US has more than 300,000 cases and more than 8,100 deaths, according to revised figures.
Trump on Saturday said ‘There’s going to be a lot of death, unfortunately.’
He said federal assistance would now be focused on areas that need it most.
“In some cases we are telling governors we cannot go there as we don’t think they need it, or someone else needs it,” he said.
“There will be a lot of death, unfortunately. There will be death. We are looking for an obvious focus on the hardest hit regions.
“We’re going to be adding a tremendous amount of military, thousands of soldiers, medical workers, professionals,” to help deal with the pandemic.
