Face masks and Donald

The President of the USA, Donald Trump has always been anti-face masks. He had also said that he will not force his people to wear a face mask. If they want, they can wear it but he will not make it mandatory for them to do so in public places. And he used to also not practice social distancing during his official engagements. He was without face masks in many meetings and media photos.

Once a person tests positive for the virus or has any symptoms of coronavirus, he has to go into a quarantine phase. Additionally, his contacts who are with no symptoms or test negative should restrict their movements for a few days.  In the USA, more than 7.2 million have tested positive for the virus. Nearly 200k people have died due to it.

Donald and his health

Donald’s physician, Dr. Sean Conley released a statement on 1 October 2020 and said that both the US President and his wife are well. They will remain at home in the White House until this phase is over for them. The statement read:

“Rest assured I expect the president to continue carrying out his duties without disruption while recovering, and I will keep you updated on any future developments,”
