US, WASHINGTON (NEWS OBSERVATORY) — Tweets by US President Donald Trump about the coronavirus COVID-19 do not help reassure the population of the United States. Trump spreads false information about coronavirus, said former US coordinator for countering Ebola Ron Klein.
The president’s position, Ron Klein believes, is: “Don’t bring me bad news, don’t do anything that will undermine the economy, don’t tell me that bad things are happening.”
So Trump puts pressure on those who need to develop anti-virus events. Klein believes that Trump should simply give the right to vote to health experts, not government officials.
The expert adds that statistics on coronavirus infections are erroneous because in many places tests for its detection are simply not conducted.
Two to three months later, the health expert Dr. Zeke Emanuel said the data on vaccine development were harmful.
This does not help the Americans calm down, especially against the background of the fact that Professor Jennifer Nuzzo believes that it can take years for a large-scale use of the vaccine.
Trump allocated $ 8.3 billion to fight coronavirus. In the United States, more than a hundred infections have been officially confirmed, and 12 people have died from its complications.
In the current situation, coronavirus should be classified as a “threat to national security,” following the example of terrorism or cyberthreats, emphasizes the White House’s internal security adviser Lisa Monaco.
The Federal Reserve has already lowered the refinancing rate due to coronavirus by 0.5%.
The number infected with coronavirus in Azerbaijan on March 6 rose to 9 people, and in France – 613. Russia has closed the border with Iran, where the number of cases of a new type of coronavirus is growing.
