The Hill reports:
Vice President Pence said during an interview Thursday with conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh that if current trend lines hold, the coronavirus crisis could be largely “behind us” by early June.
Pence’s remarks come as some states look to begin reopening their economies in the coming days, with Oklahoma, Colorado, Georgia, Tennessee, South Carolina and Texas lifting some restrictions. Other states, including North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa, Montana and Wyoming, did not have stay-at-home orders.
“I truly do believe if current trend lines hold, that by early June, we could largely have this coronavirus epidemic behind us, and begin to see our nation open back up and go back to work,” Pence told Limbaugh.
