The calls of the American leader not to be afraid of the coronavirus were called undermining the work of health authorities.
In the US, doctors are outraged and shocked by the statements of President Donald Trump, who, after leaving the hospital, recorded a video message to the Americans, in which he urged people not to be afraid of the coronavirus.
It is noted that experts have already called such messages from the president dangerous, especially considering that the coronavirus has claimed the lives of more than 210 thousand Americans. They are outraged that the head of the state is spreading false messages about a deadly disease.
In particular, Lawrence Gostin, professor at Georgetown University in the field of medical law, said that Trump's statements undermine the work of the health authorities, as well as leading scientists in the country.
вЂњI am desperate that the US president is telling people not to be afraid of the virus. COVID-19 is the most contagious and lethal pandemic in the last hundred years,вЂќ the scientist said, adding that in the current situation it is necessary to rely on science.
According to the latest data from the Johns Hopkins University of Medicine (USA), more than 35.39 million people are infected with coronavirus in the world. At least 1.042 million patients have died, about 24.6 million have recovered.
