US President Donald Trump unveiled three phased plan for a gradual reopening of the country after the battering of the coronavirus pandemic.

During his daily press briefing, he said we are starting our life and rejuvenation of our economy again and this is a gradual process.

Trump has given governors guidance on re-opening state economies in the coming months.

The guidelines for opening up the United States again outline three phases in which states can gradually ease their lockdowns.

The US President told the governors that they would be handling the process themselves, with help from the federal government.

He suggested that some states could re-open this month.
