Default President Trump has virus

Well, our president here has finally contracted the Corvid virus. His wife Melania also has it. He is being transported to Walter Reed Military hospital with mild symptoms. They haven't said if his wife has any symptoms yet.

He has been a non-mask wearing person. The mask is a misleading thing. Unless you have a medical mask N95 then you are not protected from the virus from others if they are not wearing the mask. I always try to stay away from anyone that is not wearing a face mask. that mask the other person is wearing will help protect you from the virus if they have it.

It really would not have done him any good to wear a mask unless (n95) since most people here in crowds are not wearing them. It is a false narrative to think the everyday mask that is being sold on the market will keep you safe. It will not help you. the mask only helps the other person if they are not wearing one and the mask wearer is positive !!!!!!

People would have been wearing a mask had Trump not discouraged the wearing of them and made it a political issue. The US would be a lot healthier if mask wearing had been presented as the patriotic thing to do.

The ordinary cloth masks help. The biggest help from them is if the infected person is wearing one. The virus is on the droplets expelled in breathing, talking and normal living. These droplets are caught by the mask. They help prevent infections as well. The droplets are caught on the mask of the non infected person so if everyone is wearing the masks, the chances of transmission are a fraction of no masks.


There are lots of test results available on line that demonstrates this.

The N95 mask with the vent is almost useless, the droplets are expelled through the vent. They are good for protecting the non infected person but not as good as a three layer cotton home made mask because of the vent in preventing droplets from an infected person from being released.

Even in cases where some virus gets through the mask, the viral load is less and the severity of the infection is less.

The two best and cheapest options are the three layer cloth masks, 30 p locally,, just wash them every wearing and the paper disposable surgical ones. These were 99p for a box of 50 recently.


Add in social distancing and requirement hand washing and had all these been common world wide practices the pandemic would have been under control now. Instead we are looking at well into 2021 or later to get to something like the new normal with at least a million dead and counting.

The press asked the white house doctor if Trump was getting any better.
The reply was "No. He's still as useless as ever"

hey Tiz--- this president has done more in 4 years then the last 4 president did combined together.

1. he is building the southern wall to stop illegals from flooding our country.
2. stopped the $150 million dollar payment to Iran that Obama was giving them.
3. put tariff on china trade.
4. bring back jobs in USA.

He cares about us here. the other presidents cared more for other countries.

I can go on and on. He doesn't take any ********. He gets things done that the other presidents just hide in a corner and let things happen.

I don't like his attitude sometimes but at least he takes care of things and gets them done.
