President Trump is reportedly planning to issue a call to reopen the United States economy, even as a number of prominent health experts — including some on his own coronavirus task force team — are expressing alarm that a premature return to normalcy could create serious setbacks in the nation’s attempts to contain the virus.

Sources with knowledge of the president’s conversations spoke to The Washington Post about his thinking on the matter, noting that, in phone calls with advisers from outside the White House, Trump has suggested he has a strong desire to reopen the nation’s businesses by May 1 or sooner.
