Trump states “don’t be afraid of COVID” as U.S. deaths leading 210,000

Washington– President Trump tried to downplay the intensity of COVID-19 on Monday as he prepared to leave Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, tweeting Americans need not “hesitate of COVID.” At almost the same time, the across the country death toll surpassed 210,000, according to a tally from Johns Hopkins University

“Do not be afraid of Covid. We have actually developed, under the Trump Administration, some actually excellent drugs & knowledge.

Don’t be scared of Covid. We have established, under the Trump Administration, some actually great drugs & knowledge.

Later On, after he was discharged Monday night, he posted a video on Twitter with a similar message about COVID-19

” One thing that’s for specific: Do not let it control you,” he said of the illness. “Do not be afraid of it. You’re going to beat it. We have the very best medical equipment, we have the very best medications, all established just recently. And you’re going to beat it.”

Mr. Trump was confessed to the medical facility Friday evening, less than 24 hours after he announced that he and very first woman Melania Trump evaluated favorable for COVID-19

Mr. Trump’s medical group said Monday he continues on the dexamethasone and has been offered three doses of remdesivir.

While the coronavirus spread throughout the U.S. in the spring and into the summer season– and the death toll continued to increase– Mr. Trump has consistently tried to play down the intensity of COVID-19, even telling journalist Bob Woodward he intentionally minimized the hazard of the coronavirus to prevent prompting panic amongst the American people.
