Sunday, President Trump expressed hope that the United States is seeing a “leveling-off” of the coronavirus crisis in some of the nation’s Hot Spots, saying Americans were starting to see “the light at the end of the tunnel.”
New York, the hardest-hit state, reported Sunday that for the 1st time in a week, deaths had fallen slightly from the day before, but there were about 600 new fatalities and 7,300+ new cases.
“Maybe that’s a good sign,” President Trump told reporters at the daily White House briefing, as he referred to the decline in fatalities in New York.
“We are starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel,” he said. Adding, “You can never be happy when so many people are dying.”
“I want people to live, and I am seeing people dying,” he said.
President Trump said the United States was “very far down the line” on developing vaccines for the coronavirus. “We will see what happens,” he said.
Sunday, he spoke of the use of a drug used to treat malaria in the fight against COVID-19.
“What do you have to lose? I am not looking at it one way or another. But we want to get out of this. If it does work, it would be a shame if we did not do it early,” President Trump said.
“What do I know? I’m not a doctor. But I have common sense.”
During that press conference he announced that the US has secured 29-M doses of hydroxychloroquine, a drug whose patent has run out.. The FDA gave the drug emergency-use authorization and is stepping up testing for use on coronavirus patients.
Remember, President Trump said we do not want the cure to be worse than the illness…
Making and Keeping America Great!
Have a healthy week, stay home, Keep the Faith!
