T-RUMPS COVID-19 LIES




👺 T-RUMP’S SPINS, LIES AND FALSEHOODS
The claim: The COVID-19 would weaken “when we get into April, in the warmer weather—that has a very negative effect on that, and that type of a virus.  ”The outbreak would be temporary: “It’s going to disappear.  One day it’s like a miracle—it will disappear.”…

The  claim: If the economic shutdown continues, deaths by suicide “definitely would be in far greater numbers than the numbers that we’re talking about” for COVID-19 deaths…

The claim: “COVID-19 numbers are looking MUCH better, going down almost everywhere,” and cases are “coming way down.”

The claim:  The pandemic is “fading away. It’s going to fade away”…

The claim: The pandemic is “getting under control.”…

The claim: “99%” of COVID-19 cases are “totally harmless.”

The claim: “We now have the lowest Fatality (Mortality) Rate in the World.”

The claim:   The T-RUMP White House rolled back Food and Drug Administration regulations that limited the kind of laboratory tests states could run and how they could conduct them. “The Obama administration made a decision on testing that turned out to be very detrimental to what we’re doing,” T-RUMP said.

The claim: The Obama White House’s response to the H1N1 pandemic was “a full scale disaster, with thousands dying, and nothing meaningful done to fix the testing problem, until now.”  The truth: Barack Obama declared a public-health emergency two weeks after the first US cases of H1N1 were reported, in California.  A month and a half ahead of T-RUMP… 

The claim: he T-RUMP White House “inherited” a “broken,” “bad,” and “obsolete” test for the COVID-19 The truth: The novel COVID-19 did not exist in humans during the Obama administration. 

The claim: The Obama administration left T-RUMP “bare” and “empty” shelves of medical supplies in the national strategic stockpile.  The truth: The 2009 H1N1 outbreak did deplete the N95 mask supply and was never replenished, but the Obama administration did not leave the stockpile empty of other materials.  And a newer version of the N95 was in the works.

The claim: Referring to criticism of his administration’s response, T-RUMP tweeted: “Compare that to the Obama / Sleepy Joe disaster known as H1N1 Swine Flu. Poor marks … didn’t have a clue!”

The claim: T-RUMP later attacked “Joe Biden’s handling of the H1N1 Swine Flu.”  The truth: Biden was not responsible for the federal government’s response to the H1N1 outbreak.

The claim: Anybody that needs a test, gets a test. We—they’re there. They have the tests. And the tests are beautiful” and “If somebody wants to be tested right now, they’ll be able to be tested.”

The claim:  In an Oval Office address, T-RUMP said that private-health-insurance companies had “agreed to waive all co-payments for COVID-19 treatments, extend insurance coverage to these treatments, and to prevent surprise medical billing.”  The truth: Insurers agreed only to absorb the cost of COVID-19 testing insurers, doctors, and hospitals.


The claim: Google engineers are building a website to help Americans determine whether they need testing for the COVID-19 and to direct them to their nearest testing site.The truth: The announcement was news to Google itself—the website T-RUMP (and other administration officials) described was actually being built by Verily, a division of Alphabet, the parent company of Google. 

  The United States has outpaced South Korea’s COVID-19 testing: “We’re going up proportionally very rapidly,” T-RUMP said during a Fox News town hall. The truth: When the president made this claim, testing in the US was severely lagging behind that in South Korea. 

The claim:  America has “developed a testing capacity unmatched and unrivaled anywhere in the world, and it’s not even close.” The truth: The United States is still not testing enough people and is lagging behind the testing and tracing capabilities that other countries have developed.   
Another claim: The United States has conducted more testing “than all other countries together!”  Not totally true… “Cases are going up in the US because we are testing far more than any other country.”The truth: COVID-19 cases are not rising because of “our big-number testing.”   Sure 28,000 more dead disprove that…


The claim:  The United States would suspend “all travel from Europe, except the United Kingdom, for the next 30 days,” T-RUMP announced in an Oval Office address.
The Truth:  The travel restriction 
would not apply to US citizens, legal permanent residents, or their families returning from Europe.  Another claim: In the same address, T-RUMP said the travel restrictions would “not only apply to the tremendous amount of trade and cargo but various other things as we get approval.”

The claim: All US citizens arriving from Europe would be subject to medical screening, COVID-19 testing, and quarantine if necessary. “If an American is coming back or anybody is coming back, we’re testing,” Trump said. “We have a tremendous testing setup where people coming in have to be tested … We’re not putting them on planes if it shows positive, but if they do come here, we’re quarantining.”
The truth: Testing is already severely limited in the United States. It is not true that all Americans returning to the country are being tested, nor that anyone is being forced to quarantine, more lies…

The claim: “We stopped all of Europe” with a travel ban. “We started with certain parts of Italy, and then all of Italy. Then we saw Spain. Then I said, ‘Stop Europe; let’s stop Europe. We have to stop them from coming here.’” 
The truth: 
The travel ban applied to the Schengen Area, as well as the United Kingdom and Ireland, and not all of Europe as he claimed. Additionally, T-RUMP is wrong about the United States rolling out a piecemeal ban. 

The claim: “Everybody thought I was wrong” about implementing restrictions on travelers from China, and “most people felt they should not close it down—that we shouldn’t close down to China.”  
The truth: While the WHO did say it opposed travel bans on China generally, Trump’s own top health officials have made clear that the travel ban was the “uniform” recommendation of the Department of Health and Human Services. Fauci and Deborah Birx, the coordinator of the COVID-19 task force, both praised the decision too.

The claim: The T-RUMP administration’s travel restrictions on China were a “ban” that closed up the “entire” United States and “kept China out.”  
The truth: Nearly 40,000 people traveled from China to the United States from February 2, when Trump’s travel restrictions went into effect, to April 4

The claim: “I’ve always known this is a real—this is a pandemic. I felt it was a pandemic long before it was called a pandemic and  I’ve always viewed it as very serious.”  
ED: BIGGEST FRICKIN LIE HE EVER TOLD  
The truth: Trump has repeatedly downplayed the significance of COVID-19 as outbreaks began stateside. From calling criticism of his handling of the virus a “hoax,” to comparing the COVID-19 to a common flu, to worrying about letting sick Americans off cruise ships because they would increase the number of confirmed cases, Trump has used his public statements to send mixed messages and show doubt about the outbreak’s seriousness.

The claim:  This kind of pandemic “was something nobody thought could happen … Nobody would have ever thought a thing like this could have happened.”   
The truth: Experts both inside and outside the federal government sounded the alarm many times in the past decade about the potential for a devastating global pandemic, Two years ago, the legacy of Ebola outbreaks—including the devastating 2014 epidemic—to evaluate how ready the US was for a pandemic.  Ebola hardly impacted America—but it revealed how unprepared the country was.


Dr. Fauci Made T-RUMP Look Even Stupider With Truth

But where someone else’s suffering might not be enough to move the President, a trend that makes him look bad may. In this case the political polls made it clear that he risked a humiliating loss if he didn't turn around public opinion on his pandemic response. He also, apparently, started to feel envious of Fauci who, polls show, is more trusted on COVID-19 than the President. 

"Dr. Fauci's made some mistakes, but I have a very good -- I spoke to him yesterday at length -- I have a very good relationship with Dr. Fauci," Trump said. "He's a little bit of an alarmist -- that's OK."   T-RUMP in the interview listed several “mistakes” he said Fauci has made in recent months, including his original stance on the wearing of masks.  

The President seemed irritated by Fauci's approval ratings. "So it sort of is curious," Trump said, "a man works for us, with us, very closely, Dr. Fauci and Dr. [Deborah] Birx also, very highly thought of — and yet, they’re highly thought of… and I’m not… ED:  Thats because you are a liar, laking compassion, feelings of others they know you are full of hatred, your friends are all crooks, you are a cheat who’s day has come… and you are definitively sick needing mental health help.
 



😷 THE COVID-19 

What Does The Coronavirus Do To Your Body? 

Everything You Need To Know About The Infection Process 
 ( Edited USA Every Day and CNN For Truth )


T-Rump Lies… Who Tells The Truth…From The Beginning…

  •  The World Health Organization ( WHO)  and US Centers for Disease Control ( CDC) and Prevention advise the public be watchful for fever, dry cough and shortness of breath, symptoms that follow contraction of the new COVID-19 known as SARS-CoV-2.  

  • From infection, it takes approximately five to 12 days for symptoms to appear. According to the CDCthe virus can spread person-to-person within 6 feet through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.  It’s also possible for the virus to remain on a surface or object, be transferred by touch and enter the body through the mouth, nose or eyes.

  • “It’s a respiratory virus and thus it enters through the respiratory tract, we think primarily through the nose,” he said. “But it might be able to get in through the eyes and mouth because that’s how other respiratory viruses behave.”  When the virus enters the body, it begins to attack. Fever, cough and other COVID-19 symptoms and It can take two to 14 days for a person to develop symptoms after initial exposure to the virus, Hirsch said. The average is about five days.

  • Once inside the body, it begins infecting epithelial cells in the lining of the lung. A protein on the receptors of the virus can attach to a host cell's receptors and penetrate the cell. Inside the host cell, the virus begins to replicate until it kills the cell.  This first takes place in the upper respiratory tract, which includes the nose, mouth, larynx and bronchi.
    flu.

  • Younger people respond better to the ventilators but critical care ICU patients of age are having a rough go, they are not making it. It is estimated we will hit the 400,000 mark by January. 

  • While the best defenses include basic precautions like hand washing, staying calm, and protecting medical workers, we face more difficulties. The disease is transmitted with relative ease (evidently between people, through the air, like influenza and unlike Ebola, SARS, and MERS), and the timing seems to be bad. 



  • The WHO reported last month about 80% of patients have a mild to moderate disease from infection. A case of “ Mild” COVID-19 includes a fever and cough more severe than the seasonal flu but does not require hospitalization.  Those milder cases are because the body’s immune response is able to contain the virus in the upper respiratory tract, Hirsch says. Younger patients have a more vigorous immune response compared to older patients.

  • The 13.8% of severe cases and 6.1% critical cases are due to the virus trekking down the windpipe and entering the lower respiratory tract, where it seems to prefer growing.  “The lungs are the major target,” Hirsch said.   As the virus continues to replicate and journeys further down the windpipe and into the lung, it can cause more respiratory problems like bronchitis and pneumonia.   
    Pneumonia is characterized by shortness of breath combined with a cough and affects tiny air sacs in the lungs, called alveoli, Viscidi said. The alveoli are where oxygen and carbon dioxide are exchanged.  When pneumonia occurs, the thin layer of alveolar cells is damaged by the virus. The body reacts by sending immune cells to the lung to fight it off. "And that results in the linings becoming thicker than normal," he said. "As they thicken more and more, they essentially choke off the little air pocket, which is what you need to get the oxygen to your blood." “So it’s basically a war between the host response and the virus,” Hirsch said. “Depending who wins this war we have either good outcomes where patients recover or bad outcomes where they don’t.”

  • Restricting oxygen to the bloodstream deprives other major organs of oxygen including the liver, kidney and brain. In a small number of severe cases that can develop into acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), which requires a patient be placed on a ventilator to supply oxygen. 
    However, if too much of the lung is damaged and not enough oxygen is supplied to the rest of the body, respiratory failure could lead to organ failure and death. 
    iscidi stresses that outcome is uncommon for the majority of patients infected with coronavirus. Those most at risk to severe developments are older than 70 and have weak immune responses. Others at risk include people with pulmonary abnormalities, chronic disease or compromised immune systems, such as cancer patients who have gone through chemotherapy treatment. 
  • Viscidi urges to public to think of the coronavirus like the flu because it goes through the same process within the body. Many people contract the flu and recover with no complications.   "People should remember that they're as healthy as they feel," he said. “And shouldn’t go around feeling as unhealthy as they fear.” 
  • For the ignoramuses that thought COVID-19 came from Mexico, you truly exemplify mental illness and should be buried underneath T-RUMPS wall for f*cked-up idiots.  ( Not a joke some schmucks thought it was revenge) 



😇  Dr. FAUCI — The One We Believe In

  • Fauci said some states “ Went too fast” in reopening, while others followed the guidelines, “  But the people in the state didn’t listen and just threw caution to the wind.”   The nation’s top infectious disease expert said simple public health measures such as closing bars, spacing out seating at restaurants, avoiding crowds and wearing masks will curb the increase in cases.  “Guarantee you’re going to see that curve come down,”.

  • “ I  think as we get into 2021, several months in, that you would have a vaccine that would be widely available to people in the United States,” Fauci told the Washington Post’s Bob Costa during a Post Live event.  That means spring 2021 at the soonest.   Fauci noted that some companies have claimed they could have a vaccine available before the end of the year. “I  m a little skeptical about that, but, you know, anything is possible,” he told the Post.

  • But Fauci says he’s confident a vaccine will be able to stop the pandemic in its tracks, once it’s widely available.  Fauci also said that as many people as possible should get vaccinated for influenza this year, since the pandemic will complicate flu season.

  • The other sobering message came from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  A new survey found that COVID-19 symptoms can linger for weeks, even among otherwise healthy young adults who don’t have severe symptoms. One in five people 18 to 34 said they had lingering symptoms, usually fatigue or a cough. The older people were, the more likely they were to have lingering symptoms.

  • More than 150 prominent US medical experts, scientists, teachers, nurses and others have signed a letter to political leaders urging them to shut down the country and start over to contain the surging COVID-19 pandemic.
     
  • “ Right now we are on a path to lose more than 319,000 American lives by December.  Yet, in many states people can drink in bars, get a haircut, eat inside a restaurant, get a tattoo, get a massage, and do myriad other normal, pleasant, but non-essential activities,” the letter said. And get COVID-19 and die as a bonus…  COVID-19 is set to become a leading cause of death in the US, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention mortality statisticians told CNN.

😟 Animal Infections  Fact or Fiction….Fact!

  • Research on SARS-COV-2  in animals is limited, but studies are underway to learn more about how this virus can affect different animals.   Recent research shows that ferrets, cats, and golden Syrian hamsters can be experimentally infected with the virus and can spread the infection to other animals of the same species in laboratory settings.

  • A number of studies have investigated non-human primates as models for human infection. Rhesus macaques, Cynomolgus macaques, Grivets, and common marmosets can become infected SARS-CoV-2 and become sick in a laboratory setting.   Mice, pigs, chickens, and ducks do not seem to become infected or spread the infection based on results from these studies.

  • The first dog has died from COVI-19.   Data from one study suggest some dogs can get infected but might not spread the virus to other dogs as easily compared to cats and ferrets, which can easily spread the virus to other animals of the same species but two cases of dogs dying from the virus.  These findings were based on a small number of animals, and do not show whether animals can spread infection to people. More studies are needed to understand if and how different animals could be affected by COVID-19.
