SEAN HANNITY (HOST): The White House now predicting it's possible between 100,000 and 200,000 deaths in the U.S. But it could have been 2.2 million. Very interesting charts. Let us hope for the best-case scenario.

HANNITY: Now, this is why the president extended the social distancing plan until April 30. All medical experts are saying that will prevent people from contracting the virus, and exponentially that will mathematically prevent people from ultimately dying. We want to save American lives. We believe in life. We protect the lives of people all across this globe. We've got to protect Americans now. All hands on deck.

Now, it is a concerning number, frankly downright scary. And we hope and pray that we never get there and that lives are saved. Dr. Fauci talked about it. That could all happen too.

And now, because of the president's decisive actions, we have time to potentially curb that number and mitigate this disease. Travel ban, that brought us a ton of time. The quarantines, also bought us time. Our current period of social distancing is buying us more time.

Now the thing is, no president has done more, acted more quickly. The book on pandemics has now been rewritten. Future generations will learn from the lessons of this pandemic. Never before have all of these new things happened.
