TENACIOUS TRUMP: President to keep working despite COVID-19 diagnosis

Trump’s positive COVID-19 diagnosis was surely not the “October Surprise” anyone was expecting.

But despite growing concerns of a 14-day quarantine with only 32 days left until the election, the President is fired up and will continue working – from isolation – to defeat his opponent on November 3.

President Trump is feeling “energetic” and remains in high spirits after testing positive for the coronavirus overnight, White House chief of staff Mark Meadows said Friday, according to the New York Post.

Meadows confirmed that the 74-year-old president was experiencing “mild symptoms,” but nothing he can’t handle.

“He continues to be not only in good spirits but very energetic,” he told reporters at the White House on Friday morning.

Meadows said doctors were monitoring the couple’s health but that Trump was “engaged” and would continue working as he quarantines at the White House.

“He is not only staying committed to working very hard on behalf of the American people, his first question to me this morning was ‘How’s the economy doing? How’re the stimulus talks going on Capitol Hill?” he said.

News of the president’s diagnosis came shortly after it was reported that White House counselor Hope Hicks, one of his closest advisers, had tested positive for the virus after traveling with him all week.

Others who came into contact with the president in recent days are in the process of testing.

Former vice president Joe Biden and his wife Jill both tested negative Friday morning after wishing the president and Melania a “swift recovery.”

Vice President Mike Pence and his wife, Karen, both tested negative as well.

With the election right around the corner, Trump’s positive test results come at a critical time.

But, knowing the president, not even the coronavirus will stop him from his campaign to victory.

    Agreed. Having Mr. Trump be forced to work — even for a few days — at a less hectic level may be one of the unexpected and saving graces of his becoming ill.

Biden Says He Doesn’t Think COVID Is ‘Here To Stay’

Joe Biden

On Friday, President Biden said he doesn’t think that COVID-19 is here to stay, but added that he does think the virus will remain around the world.

“No, I don’t think COVID is here to stay, but having COVID in the environment here and in the world is probably here to stay,” Biden told reporters at the White House.
“COVID as we’re dealing with it now is not here to stay, the normal doesn’t have to be. We have so many more tools we developed and we continue to develop that can contain COVID and other strains of COVID,” he added.

Biden’s comments come shortly after six of his former health advisers, who helped him with the COVID-19 pandemic during his presidential transition, published three opinion articles in the Journal of the American Medical Association urging Biden to change his strategy in responding to COVID-19 to one accepting that the virus was here to stay and learning how to live with it.

“They say the first thing the administration needs to do is take a broader vision, by recognizing that Covid-19 is here to stay. In one article, Dr. Emanuel and two co-authors — Michael T. Osterholm, an epidemiologist at the University of Minnesota, and Dr. Celine Gounder, an infectious disease expert at New York University — pointedly note that in July, Mr. Biden proclaimed that ‘we’ve gained the upper hand against this virus,’ which in retrospect was clearly not the case,” The New York Times reported.

Biden’s comments suggest he has not yet listened to the advice of these experts, even as the COVID-19 pandemic has worsened to reaching over 1 million new daily cases.

Former COVID Advisory Board tells Biden corona now ‘one of several circulating respiratory virus’ like flu

Doctors who once advised President Biden on how to handle the coronavirus are now telling him to change his strategy via a series of published articles in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

The six doctors, Drs. Ezekiel Emanuel, Michael Osterholm, Celine Gounder, David Michaels, Rick Bright and Luciana Borio were members of the advisory board that worked with Biden during his transition period before taking office.

“As the omicron variant of SARS-CoV-2 demonstrates, COVID-19 is here to stay” and therefore Biden’s national strategy must be “updated.”

“The goal for the ‘new normal’ with COVID-19 does not include eradication or elimination, eg, the ‘zero COVID’ strategy. Neither COVID-19 vaccination nor infection appears to confer lifelong immunity,” they wrote.

“Current vaccines do not offer sterilizing immunity against SARS-CoV-2 infection. Infectious diseases cannot be eradicated when there is limited long-term immunity following infection or vaccination or nonhuman reservoirs of infection.”

The “new normal,” they explained, should be “recognizing that SARS-CoV-2 is but one of several circulating respiratory viruses that include influenza, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), and more.”

The doctors also pointed out there are many treatments with varying levels of effectiveness such as remdesevir and dexamethasone, monoclonal antibody treatment, and oral treatments like Molnupiravir and Paxlovid.

“Finally,” Fox News reports, they said it is imperative “to rebuild trust in public health institutions and a belief in collective action in service of public health.”
