(TNS) During a press briefing on Tuesday, President Donald Trump expressed his displeasure with Americans who were ignoring government guidelines to self-isolate due to the coronavirus outbreak.
â€œIâ€™m not happy with those people if theyâ€™re not,â€ Trump said at the White House when asked by reporters for his reaction to those Americans currently ignoring self-isolation instructions.

That said, the president also said that Americans who are attempting to skirt coronavirus isolation guidelines are also being “called out” by others.
â€œYou know those people are being shouted down by other people, they know it. Itâ€™s almost like self-policing,â€ he said.
On Monday the president laid out a 15-day plan for Americans and states to follow that included recommendations to shutter bars and restaurants, gyms, and to avoid public places where 10 or more people are gathered. He also recommended that Americans stay away from nursing homes.
Trump on Tuesday reminded Americans to stay out of public spaces if at all possible and avoid unnecessary travel.
â€œI would just say, enjoy your home. Stay. I would just say right now. We have to get this problem fixed,â€ he said, advising Americans to cancel travel plans.
He also said that if everyone does their part, the outbreak will be shorter.
â€œIf we do this right our country and the world frankly, but our country can be rolling again pretty quickly,â€ he said. â€œWe have to fight that invisible enemy.â€
Meanwhile, as reported by Sara A. Carter, Dr. Marc Siegel told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tuesday evening that testing for the virus “matters now more than ever.”

“Because there is something called the public health numerator, which is people showing up in hospitalsâ€¦we need to be able to get to know the denominator, how many cases are there,” said Siegal, a regular Fox News contributor and author of books on bird flu and pandemics.
