At a time when American officials are discussing ways to reopen the economy without igniting the corona’s outbreak in the country again, the United States today recorded a new toll that is the highest in terms of deaths due to “19” nations. According to a statistic conducted by Reuters, the number of deaths in the United States today exceeded the threshold of 24 thousand, while the total injuries in them amounted to about 583 thousand. Yesterday, about 1,500 new deaths were recorded, which is much lower than last week’s daily toll, which amounted to about 2,000 deaths every 24 hours, according to Reuters.

And weeks ago, the US authorities imposed extensive restrictions that obligated people in many areas of the United States to stay in their homes to curb the spread of the virus, which caused great economic damage. With companies closed and travel restrictions imposed, officials and lawmakers are discussing when some sectors can be reopened. In this context, US President Donald Trump had announced earlier that he was studying plans to restart the economy early next month, and to ease restrictions on "social divergence." Trump's words sparked a debate that continued to this day, as New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo said that he "will not abide by any order issued by the President to end the state's isolation measures in an unsafe manner during the Corona outbreak." "If he orders me to reopen (New York) in a way that endangers the public health of the members of my state, I will not," Cuomo said in an interview with CNN.

Washington Is Negotiating to Store Oil

The US Energy Department announced on Tuesday 14th April 2020, that it is negotiating contracts with nine energy companies to store up to 23 million barrels of locally produced oil in the country's strategic crude reserves. And the ministry embarked on a plan to lease space to companies in the strategic oil reserve as a way to help companies suffering from falling oil prices after Congress failed to fund another plan to buy oil for the reserve. In a statement, the ministry added that "the majority of the deliveries will be received in May and June next, with some possible shipments this April."

Trump: I like Fauci

Unusually, the evening press briefing for the Corona Crisis Cell began at the White House with a statement by Dr Anthony Fauci, with the aim of dispelling rumors of a dispute between him and President Donald Trump. Referring to an interview with CNN on Sunday, during which he stated that imposing measures earlier would have mitigated the escalation of the Covid-19 crisis, Fauci explained that he was responding "hypothetically".

He added that his interview in the interview about "addressing" the shutdown of the economy (which was widely interpreted as a sign of Trump's failure to take drastic measures) was "a wrong choice of words."

Trump, who reinforced speculation Sunday by re-publishing a critical tweet with a label calling for the doctor's dismissal, sought to put an end to this dispute, and said of Fauci: "I like ... I heard that I'm going to fire him, I'm not going to fire him, I think he's a wonderful person."

California Churches Sue for "Social Estrangement"

The Los Angeles Times said that three churches in southern California wanted to keep their doors open during the Corona outbreak, and they sued state governor Gavin Newsom and other officials.

She argued that social distance orders "violate the right to religion and assembly contained in the First Amendment of the American Constitution." The newspaper pointed out that the lawsuit, which was filed before the federal court in the Central District of California, included the names of the state attorney general and officials from two provinces.

The lawsuit seeks to prohibit Newsom's decision to stay at home for a month, the two provinces ’decision to make most people stay in their homes, close all businesses that are described as essential, and prevent gatherings. Decisions do not include places of worship among the major infrastructures in which one-to-one communication is permitted.
