Wash. D.C. Politicians Have Truly Lost Their Minds!
Health Editor’s Note: D.C. politicians continue to believe they are immune to contracting COVID-19 and if they have it, they need not be concerned about spreading it to others. Maskless and non adherence to physical distancing is the dress and mode of the day. Is there a message that has somehow gotten lost on these people who do not seem to have two brains to rub together? Mask wearing and physical distancing if you are not infected with the virus is how we do it. But…..if you have tested positive for COVID-19 you are to be isolated for at least 14 days….that means you do not go to work, do not meet with others, do not go to political functions, YOU STAY HOME!
As it is going now, there will be no one left who is not coronavirus positive in the White House or Capitol building or any where else the politicians gather.
And then we had Trump, leaving what should have been strict isolation, at Walter Reed and doing a drive-by to wave at his supporters in front of the hospital. Sure, Trump and his Secret Service agents were wearing masks, but come on, we know that Trump was spewing coronavavirus with every breath he took or cough he made. Literally, common sense is no where near D.C. right now. Those who aspire to all things political think COVID-19 is a joke.
This from James Phillips, chief of disaster medicine at George Washington University School of medicine and an attending physician at Walter Reed: “That Presidential SUV is not only bulletproof, but hermetically sealed against chemical attack. The risk of COVID19 transmission inside is as high as it gets outside of medical procedures,” Phillips tweeted. “Every single person in the vehicle during that completely unnecessary presidential ‘drive-by’ just now has to be quarantined for 14 days. They might get sick. They may die.”
I feel for the healthcare professionals and workers who will be bearing the burden of caring for these idiots when they are hospitalized…..Carol
