The U.S president was diagnosed with the COVID-19 virus on Friday. The whole nation went into shock when the news first broke out. Now in any situation like this where the president himself catches the deadly virus, you would expect the rest of the country along with him to take care of the safety measures that have been given out by the world health organization. But the case is exactly opposite to that in America.
If the virus can reach the president who is guarded by the top-notch security and all the precautions it does not say much about how much you can stay safe. The 74-year-old president was taken to the military hospital where he was given medical support and extraordinary healthcare. However, the president’s health was not as what it was projected to the people of the country. White House chief of staff mark meadows exclaimed that trump’s health was far worse than what has been said about it. His blood oxygen levels had dropped rapidly on Friday along with mild symptoms and high fever. It’s not just him but some of his top advisers and officials have also been tested positive. this clearly shows the one who cannot keep himself away from the virus what good would he be to the people of his country.
This would all have been settled if trump would take this as an awakening call but that is Donald trump we are talking about. Wherever he is controversy is not far enough.
After returning to the white house he allegedly passed a statement that would infuriate thousands of people across the country. The president said despite his illness he country needs not to worry about the virus that has already proven fatal to more than 210,000 Americans and 1 million deaths worldwide. Trump’s message was proven rather alarming to the infectious disease experts and suggested that the president’s infection has not caused him to rethink the severity of the situation and the virus which also infected the first lady along with other white house officials, if you think that this would be the end of it, you are highly mistaken on landing at the White House on Marine One, Trump gingerly climbed the South Portico steps removed his mask and declared that he felt good! He gave a double thumbs up to the departing helicopter from the portico terrace where aides had arranged American flags for the sunset occasion and entered the White House, where aides were visible milling about the blue room without covering his face or even wearing a face mask.
The president had left the Walter Reed National Military Medical Centre on Monday where his doctor Navy commander Sean Conley said that the president remains contagious and would not be fully recovered for the next two weeks so he must be watched at all times and safe distance must be maintained at all times. But he was discharged from the hospital on the basis that he had matched all the requirements for being permitted to carry on his further treatment at the white house and would not have to stay at the military hospital any longer.
Democratic presidential contender Joe Biden made it a point to notify Trump that he’s not taking the virus seriously would not make the situation go away. Biden said now that trump has suffered, he might rethink about wearing masks to prevent him and others of the contagious disease. He also said that he was ready to compete against trump in the debate next week for the elections to be held on November 3, only and only if it was safe. A debate between the vice president Mike Pence and Biden’s running mate senator Kamala harris has been scheduled on Wednesday. Both of them were tested negative for the virus. The second face-to-face debate has been scheduled for October 15 in Miami between Biden and Trump who had their first debate last week. But now due to Trump’s condition, it is yet to be decided whether or not he will be allowed to leave the white house without putting the lives of others in danger.
The pandemic has hit harder on the United States than any other country. Currently, the states record the highest number of deaths due to the virus in the whole world. The whole country is worried about what may lie ahead of them but here has its president not taking precautions and mocking the virus as it is nothing real to e afraid of. The NFL has postponed two games as the three teams were diagnosed positive. Also, the hospitals have run low on space, and that the infectious were to be on a rise especially in the colder months ahead. The experts claimed that it would take as long as 2023 for the job market to fully recover and work as it was before. Dr. Reed Tuckson, board chairman of the nonpartisan Health Policy Alliance in Washington said that the statistics are so mind-blowing that it makes it painful to accept how absurd this fact is.
The U.S is averaging on 40,000 cases per day but the condition has improved in some of the states which were hotspots earlier in the hotter months of the year. Mississippi’s governor ended a mask requirement and said that he would also look forward to easing the capacity at restaurants and the bars at New Orleans got the permissions to sell carry-out drinks.
However, the death toll still stays on a rise. South Dakota reported highs in death and cases on Thursday. The situation becomes worse because thousands of trump supporters gathered on the streets and none of them was wearing masks. People have currently lost their minds and one of the supporters was even caught saying that Trump was a brave man and that he caught the virus due to his willingness to be out there with his people and that the population even believed that it was unnecessary to mandate the use of masks. If people and the leaders are this dumb, then, God save America!
