US President Donald Trump said on Thursday that he will order the US flag to be flown at half-staff over the next three days as the death toll from COVID-19 surpasses 95,000 in the country.

Trump tweeted, flags will be lowered on all Federal Buildings and National Monuments to half-staff over the next three days in memory of the Americans lost to the Coronavirus.

He said, the flags will continue to be flown at half-staff on Memorial Day, observed on 25th May every year, in honor of those in the US military who died serving their country.
