In the last 24 hours, the United States of America has recorded over 44,000 cases of coronavirus, a record high for the country. To make matters worse, an expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci, who is the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease, has warned that the coronavirus cases in America may reach 100,000 a day. You may want to know that the update on the COVID-19 pandemic cases today, globally, has reached 10,487,022 total cases and 511, 546 deaths with the United States having 2,636,538 total cases and 127, 425 deaths. Many people have lost their lives and jobs in Oklahoma and in many other places.
In the wake of this, another expert, Dr. Robert Redfield who is the director of the Centre for Disease Control (CDC), has sent out a strong appeal to young people to wear a face mask in public. According to CNN news today, coronavirus cases in America have soared in 37 states. As a result, media houses are now encouraging every American to wear a mask. Quite interestingly, an increasing number of Republican colleagues are opposed to Trump’s opinion of wearing masks. Since the dreaded coronavirus pandemic began, US President Donald Trump has refused to wear a mask contrary to the Covid-19 safety precautions. This is quite similar to President Buhari. They have both refused to wear masks publicly. What do you think could have been the reason for this?
Political analysts are of the view that Donald Trump who is seeking reelection is giving out a lot of gaps to the advantage of his opponent, Joe Biden, and that this might affect Trump negatively in the November elections. The former Vice President Joe Biden is, no doubt, weighing in on Donald Trump’s stubbornness to the advantage of his political campaign. He has berated Trump for refusing to wear a mask and also holding rallies in the pandemic.
