Discussing those figures and the latest fluctuations in the state’s new Covid-19 cases, Fox News’ Laura Ingraham said on Wednesday night: “If that trend does hold, it’s really good news about when this nightmare actually peaks, and then we start seeing light at the end of the tunnel.”

In an interview on Ingraham’s program minutes later, Surgeon General Jerome Adams echoed her sentiment and praised Trump’s positive line of messaging amid the deadly outbreak.

“What the president, in my mind, is doing is trying to help people understand that there is a light at the end of this tunnel,” Adams said. “We will get through this, and as you mentioned earlier, we’re seeing New York’s cases level off, we’re seeing their hospitalizations start to level off.

Adm. Brett Giroir, the administration’s coronavirus testing coordinator, likewise told “Fox Friends” on Thursday that “there are beginning to be indicators that we are getting ahead of this — that there’s light at the head of the tunnel.

” The hosts of the president’s favorite morning show had previously mentioned New York’s hospitalization projections.

Just hours later, however, Cuomo announced that the number of coronavirus patients in New York hospitals had surged on Thursday by 40 percent, extinguishing the encouragement inspired by Wednesday’s data.

economy by Easter Sunday.

In a news conference in the Capitol on Thursday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.

) urged the administration and congressional leaders to defer to the counsel of public health experts such as Fauci in developing the next steps in the nation’s response to the pandemic.

“If we do not heed the advice of the scientific community about isolation and .


 avoiding as much communal contact as possible — in fact, none,” she said, “then the light at the end of the tunnel may be a train coming at us.”
