With the number of coronavirus cases diagnosed in the United States reaching 3 million, and new daily records dropping, with more than 60,000 new cases, Donald Trump insisted that the United States was “in a good situation” and admitted that he “did not Listen to my experts”.
The President also publicly attacked Dr. Anthony Fudge, the most senior non-political member of the US White House Coronavirus Task Force. Dr. Anthony Fudge said earlier this week that the United States is still “deeply caught in the first wave of epidemics.”
Now, more than 130,000 Americans have died in Covid-19, the highest number of deaths in the world.
Trump told Greta Van Susteren, a former Fox News host, in an interview with Grey TV broadcast on Sunday: “I disagree with him. Dr. Fossi said, “Don’t wear “Mask”, now he says “wear a mask.” And you know, he said a lot: “Don’t turn China out. Don’t ban China.
“And I still did it. I did not listen to my experts, so I banned China.”
This is an allegation of restrictions on travelers from the country of origin of the virus. The order was issued earlier in the United States. The World Health Organization and other authorities have questioned the effectiveness of this travel ban, especially Covid-19 may have spread to the United States. Trump took action this week to withdraw the United States from the World Health Organization.
Fauci, 79, has been the dean of the American Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases since 1984. In the early days of the pandemic, he became a trusted public voice.
But tensions with Trump soon emerged, and it has been reported that Foch has now been prevented from appearing on major media platforms. After giving a sober testimony to the Senate last week, he made the “first wave” of remarks on the National Institutes of Health webcast on Monday.
On Wednesday, the White House Working Group held a meeting in Washington’s Department of Education. Forsy told CBS that he participated in the remote conference. He did not attend the press conference.
Most senior Republican officials and officials, including Vice President Mike Pence, now recommend wearing masks. But Trump refused to wear masks in public, or advocated Americans to do so, and there is no state authorization. In some states, the governor refuses to authorize the mask, or even recommends it. In some cases, the mayor is prohibited from doing so. There are also reports that the White House is trying to convince Americans that they will have to bear the risk of infection.
Most Republican-led states began to reopen their economies in late May, with Texas and Florida being the most prominent. The number of cases reported in these states reached record highs and pressure on hospitalization capacity increased rapidly. Prior to the early hot states (New York and New Jersey), the reopening measures had been suspended or modified.
Nonetheless, Trump insisted to Van Susteren that in the next two to four weeks, “I think our condition will be very good.” He had mistakenly thought the virus before It will soon disappear, and 99% of cases are harmless.
To meet Trump’s need to lag behind Joe Biden in most major polls, the Republican Party has moved the main activities of its National Congress from Charlotte, North Carolina. The governor of North Carolina is unwilling to relax public health measures. In Jacksonville, Florida, the Republican governor is keen to keep his state open.
Since then, Covid-19 cases have soared in Florida, and Jacksonville itself has begun to strengthen its work of social isolation and wearing masks. Public health experts and political strategists expressed fear of the prospect of large-scale incidents in cities hit by Covid-19.
Trump told Van Susteren that his plan to go to Jacksonville in late August “really depends on time. Look, we are very flexible. We can do many things, but we are flexible.”
