Rounds says President sending out positive message

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WNAX) – Americans are getting mixed messages on the pandemic fight. President Trump is encouraging states to safely reopen their businesses, while health professionals caution about moving too fast.

South Dakota Senator Mike Rounds says the President is sending out the positive message.

Rounds says people should trust the health care professionals.

Rounds says part of the optimism is because Congress has funded a major, multi-track plan to develop a coronavirus vaccine.

The number of infections nationally continue to rise and does not appear to have peaked, yet.
