Dr. Deborah Birx, the US coronavirus response coordinator, urged the public to maintain social distancing as many Americans hit the road and flock to beaches over Memorial Day weekend amid the coronavirus pandemic.

"Theses are the places where we have seen really a stalling, or an increase of cases as in Minneapolis", she said.

"Cases, numbers and deaths are going down all over the Country!"

The White House coronavirus response coordinator appeared on ABC's "This Week" Sunday morning, where she responded to photos of crowded beaches full of Memorial Day revelers by emphasizing that measures to prevent spreading infection like social distancing are "absolutely critical".

Trump earlier called on all governors to open houses of worship in their states, describing them as "essential" parts of America. Trump said, reflecting on the sharp decline in the number of new cases and deaths due to coronavirus.

"This only works if we all follow the guidelines and protect one another", Birx told Raddatz.
