US President Donald Trump, who has faced criticism for playing down the threat of the Covid-19 outbreak in its initial phases, urged the population in March to heed guidance to limit groups to no more than 10 people, work from home and not dine in restaurants or bars.

When reporters on Monday questioned the timeline of his response, Trump said "everything we did was right."
