Donald Trump- An overly optimistic President..!?
President Donald Trump and his team has made several dubious claims, which have been comprehensively misinforming the masses about the COVID-19.
Several of his following statements have not only been said without any evidence but have also been wrongly said!
– 10th February
“You know, a lot of people think that goes away in April with the heat – as the heat comes in. Typically, that will go away in April.”
“The Coronavirus is very much under control in the USA.”
White House National Economic Council director Larry Kudlow said, “We have contained this, I won’t say airtight but pretty close to airtight.” Kudlow also said again on March 6 that the coronavirus “is contained” in the US.
Trump wrongly says the coronavirus “is a flu!!”
Trump, contrasting the coronavirus with Ebola, said: “This is a flu. This is like a flu.”
Trump baselessly predicts the number of US cases is “going very substantially down” to “close to zero”
Trump had declared: “I think every aspect of our society should be prepared. I don’t think it’s going to come to that, especially with the fact that we’re going down, not up. We’re going very substantially down, not up.”
And he also added- “And again, when you have 15 people, and the 15 within a couple of days is going to be down to close to zero, that’s a pretty good job we’ve done.”
Evidently, the number of cases in US and deaths have been increasing as opposed to his statement. Also, their is no apparant basis for Trump’s claim that COVID-19, will automatically disappear in heat!
Mr. President, COVID-19, is not a seasonal flu! Coronavirus has higher mortality rate and also let us not forget that while several people have developed immunity against flu, COVID-19 is a new virus to which no one has immunity…!
