US President Donald Trump briefly left the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center to greet his supporters outside, waving at them from his presidential motorcade on Sunday. Trump previously posted a video saying there have been "great reports" from the doctors before thanking them. He added that he met soldiers and first responders at the hospital, and pledged to pay a "little surprise visit" to supporters outside the medical center.
Some medical experts criticized Trump's public appearance outside the hospital. James Phillips, chief of disaster medicine at George Washington University called the motorcade "political theater" and "insanity." "Every single person in the vehicle during that completely unnecessary Presidential 'drive-by' just now has to be quarantined for 14 days," said Phillips. "They may get sick. They may die. For political theater. Commanded by Trump to put their lives at risk for theater. This is insanity."
Dr. Sean Conley acknowledged the confusion during a press conference Sunday outside Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, where Trump is being treated for COVID-19. Conley said the president had a "high fever" and a blood oxygen level below 94% on Friday before he was hospitalized. Trump received supplemental oxygen for about an hour at the White House. Doctors said Trump will be treated for five days with the steroid dexamethasone to help with lung function after his oxygen level dropped on Friday and Saturday. "The president has continued to improve,'' said Conley, adding that Trump has been "fever-free" for 24 hours.
Speaker of the House of Representatives, Democrat Nancy Pelosi, expressed concern Sunday that the public is not receiving trustworthy information on Trump's condition. Pelosi added that she is worried that information being shared with the public by Trump's medical team is subject to the president's approval. The Commission for Presidential Debates ads a mute button for final Trump-Biden face-off. #FoxNews #TheFive Donald Trump has said he is starting to feel "much better" but the next few days will be "the real test" of his treatment for COVID-19.
In a video posted during his stay in hospital near Washington DC, the US president said that he was "starting to feel good" and was looking forward to "finishing up the (election) campaign the way it was started".
Speaking from his room at Walter Reed Military Hospital in Maryland, a tired-looking Mr Trump said: "I came here, wasn't feeling so well, I feel much better now." Britain is struggling with the economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic. A major supermarket just announced they'll start rationing items amid fears of 'second wave' panic buying. But things could get even worse after a no-deal Brexit. The British Retail Consortium warns that tariffs would push up prices - hitting shoppers and retailers alike.
Half of British businesses will be inadequately prepared when/if the Brexit transition phase runs out at the end of the year. That's according to a poll taken by the British chamber of commerce. 51 percent have not yet taken the steps recommended by the government for trade to continue to function seamlessly. That's why the government in London is getting ready for a worst-case scenario. One reason why businesses are so poorly prepared is the coronavirus pandemic. The companies have been focussing on coping with the consequences of the lockdown.
A think tank with economists from London's King's College has concluded that a No-Deal Brexit could have three times the negative impact on the British economy as the coronavirus. The consequences of the pandemic may be more drastic in the short term, but in the long term, a No-Deal Brexit would leave deeper scars.
