President Donald Trump tweeted on Thursday that he would have US flags lowered to half personnel for three days in honor of Americans who died from the novel corona virus.
"I will drop the flags of all federal buildings and national monuments to half the staff over the next three days to remind Americans we lost to the Corona Virus," Trump said.
"On Monday, the flags in honor of the men and women in our military who have made the ultimate sacrifice to our nation will be half cast," he added.
Monday marks the holiday of US Memorial Day, which is celebrated to commemorate those who died on duty.
