Follow-up - Conscious
Us President Donald Trump has called for ending the closure in three phases, starting with the gradual restoration of public life this month.
Trump's directives included plans to reopen shops and public facilities, tighten social spacing, allow non-compulsory travel and return to school.
He also suggested opening the economy in three stages under new guidelines, noting that the curve of MERS-CoV infections in the United States has become straight.
He said he would issue federal directives to gradually reopen the economy and drafted it in consultation with specialists, adding that the opening would be in a number of states while keeping the closure phased in other states.
