With access to some of the best medical care in the world, taxpayers' dollars will probably keep Trump alive. I doubt he would return the favor.

READ: White House physician says Trump is taking Remdesivir and 'doing very well'

 

Quote

President Donald Trump is being treated at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for Covid-19 and has begun receiving an anti-viral drug, his doctor announced Friday night.

In a memo shared by White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany, White House physician Navy Cmdr. Dr. Sean Conley wrote Trump is doing "very well."

...

This afternoon, in consultation with specialists from Walter Reed and Johns Hopkins University, I recommended movement of the President up to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for further monitoring. This evening I am happy to report that the President is doing very well. He is not requiring any supplemental oxygen, but in consultation with specialists we have elected to initiate Remdesivir therapy. He has completed his first dose and is resting comfortably.

The data on elderly, obese people being hospitalized with Covid-19 is not optimistic.

Chris Wallace: Trump Arrived at Debate Too Late for COVID-19 Test

 

Quote

President Donald Trump arrived too late in Cleveland on Tuesday to get a COVID-19 test ahead of the debate, according to Chris Wallace, the event’s moderator. Instead, the Fox News star revealed, there was an “honor system” for the two campaigns to have arrived having already tested negative.

Wallace dropped that news while being interviewed Friday afternoon by fellow Fox anchor Bill Hemmer, who had also been in Cleveland for the first Trump-Biden showdown. Reading from a Cleveland Clinic statement following the president’s positive coronavirus test, Hemmer noted that it stressed that “Individuals traveling with both candidates including the candidates themselves had been tested and tested negative by their respective campaigns.”

Hemmer further observed, “[The candidates] weren’t tested by the clinic based on the statement, Chris, and to me, that sounds like an honor system,” before noting that both he and Wallace were tested by the clinic prior to the event.

Obesity is the so called "elephant in the room" which even pre-COVID was a major health problem for most western countries.    It should receive attention from national health ministers.    It has somehow become socially acceptable at a great cost.

Apparently the bread in monster sandwiches from Subway is 10% sugar and has had to be classed as a confectionery (for tax purposes). Sugar is a drug. (Nice that it rhymes). And you can get hooked.

... or rather, as it will be a matter of national pride for the medical profession, just not allow him to die...:ph34r:

If you say, "Space Ghetto", in an American accent it sounds like you are a Glaswegian saying, "Spice Girl".

Have you tried saying, "Beer can", with a British accent?  It sounds like you are saying, "Bacon", in a Jamaican accent!

New infections are rising rapidly, "No need to fear" hospital admissions aren't.

Hospital admission are now rising rapidly, "No need to fear" deaths aren't.

@balticus And when the deaths start rising rapidly, as they will, following the high rate of infections and hospital admissions, what are you going to say then?

This is the same person who a few months ago praised Sweden,stated they were on course for herd immunity,kept praising their going for herd immunity and now that Swedens Anders Tegnell has publically stated that Herd immunity was never the goal because it is virtually impossible to have herd immunity without a vaccine it has changed it`s tune,mentions herd immunity no more.

It is the sort of person if the world decided Blue was the best colour ever it would state that Red is without doubt the best ever.

It doesn`t actually have a viewpoint of it`s own,merely parrots what the Rights viewpoint is.

Stockholm region is registering 95 cases per 100.000 over the last 7 days. As a comparison, Munich has 36. At 50, in Germany they close some schools. In Sweden, I don't think they even set a limit. And while it has been dropping in Munich, it doubled in Stockholm in the past week. This proportion is the same if you compare the whole Germany with the whole Sweden.

 

The only positive thing I've seen in Sweden is that testing capacity now looks good, comparable to Germany.
