President Trump at Sunday's coronavirus task force press conference said that the coming days will be "very difficult," though he also spoke of "light at the end of the tunnel." 

The president spoke at length from the White House.

"We have to reach a certain point, and that point is gonna be a horrific point in terms of death, but it's also a point at which things are going to start changing," Trump said. "We're getting very close to that level right now, and the next week and a half, two weeks are gonna be, I think they're gonna be very difficult."

The coronavirus has prompted government-ordered and voluntary business closures and restrictions, and has left many Americans unemployed.

Trump reiterated that the nation needs to reopen.

"We have to get our country back," he said. "And I think it's gonna come back. And I hope it's gonna come back very quickly."
