“Week of Heartache, Week of Hope”

Vice President Pence discussed coronavirus numbers.

Vice President Mike Pence said his heart goes out to the families of the more than 10,000 who have died in the U.S. of COVID-19, the highly contagious respiratory illness caused by the coronavirus. He is expecting cases to rise sharply this week.

It is also a week for hope, he said. The mitigation strategy is working. Models that help them to make projections are good, and showing that in some regions, perhaps even in New York City, the top of the peak has been reached and the downturn has begun.

The vice president said he had met in a teleconference with the governors of all 50 states earlier on Monday. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo suggested his state may have flattened the curve of the outbreak, although cautioned it may be too soon to tell.  The vice president said the flattening of the curve, if true, is a hopeful sign. New Jersey’s Governor Phil Murphy had reported that the rate of infections in his state also appeared to be slowing.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Vice President Pence as he continues to lead the White House Coronavirus Task Force.
  • That the reports of a flattening out of the curve in infections is conclusive.
  • For the America people to see that there is hope for coming out of this pandemic.
  • For families who have lost loved ones, and for those who continue to suffer under the coronavirus.
