Donald Trump attempted to downplay the threat of the coronavirus outbreak while also going on a tangent about TV ratings and Fox News at the CDC.

Asked about coronavirus, he started talking about flu deaths: “Last year, we had approximately 36,000 deaths due to what’s called the flu. When I first heard this four, five, six weeks ago ... I was shocked to hear it.” Before finishing his thought, he praised Fox News and asked a reporter about ratings: “How was the show last night, did it get good ratings by the way?”

He then said he would prefer that the passengers of the Grand Princess stay on the ship, so that the number of coronavirus cases in the US don’t increase

"Trump says he'd rather the passengers of the Grand Princess stay on the ship, because he doesn't want the number of cases in the US to increase."    @stevenportnoy

"I don't need to have the numbers double," Trump told reporters at @CDCgov.

I’d rather have the people stay ... I like the numbers being where they are. I don’t need to have the numbers double because of one ship that wasn’t our fault. It wasn’t the fault of the people on the ship either ... I’d rather have them stay on, personally.

@atrupar "I like the numbers being where they are. I don't need to have the numbers double because of one ship" -- Trump explains that he doesn't want to let people off the Grand Princess cruise ship because he doesn't want the number of coronavirus cases in the country to go up.

Donald Trump also made false statement about Corona  Virus test kit while talking at CDC and just said, “Anyone who wants a test can get a test.” There is, in fact, a test kit shortage across the country, as US health care providers have repeatedly reported. Trump’s own vice president has said there are not enough tests to meed the demand.
