President Donald Trump says he is running out of patience with the economic shutdown caused by mass quarantine measures against the coronavirus.

The 15 day period started last Monday, setting in motion a series of federal recommendations on social distancing and other anti-coronavirus measures.

Health officials and state governors dealing with the worst outbreaks of the novel coronavirus have said they expect mass restrictions on the movement of people, shutting down much of the US economy, will have to continue for some time. But Trump also retweeted on Monday that there was need for a quick shift in strategy.
