President Donald Trump and the White House coronavirus task force will brief the nation again on Friday in a 1:30 p.m. press conference at the White House.

Trump's press conference comes as models from the University of Washington's Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation report that the epidemic is nearing "peak hospital resource" use in the U.S. — the deadliest point in the epidemic for the country. The models project that about 2,000 Americans will die of the virus every day through April 17.
