Trump says Covid-19 will 'go away without vaccine', expects US death to top 95,000

Donald Trump has said coronavirus will “go away without a vaccine” and is expecting 95,000 or more deaths within the US, as Mike Pence’s press secretary tested positive for coronavirus.

The president’s comments, at an occasion with Republican lawmakers, capped a horror week within the US, during which it had been revealed unemployment had risen to 14.7%, up from 3.5% in February, with 20 million people losing their jobs in April.

The news that Mike Pence’s press secretary Katie Miller had Covid-19, having recently tested negative, again brought the danger of the virus to the White House clique . Katie Miller is married to the White House immigration adviser and speech writer Stephen Miller. On Thursday one among Trump’s personal valets tested positive to the virus.

The president again seemed to reset expectations for the ultimate US price , saying he expected 95,000 or more to die. the present toll stands at just over 77,000, with nearly 1.3 million infections, including nearly 29,000 new infections added to the calculate Friday.

The US state department on Friday accused China and Russia of stepping up cooperation to spread false narratives over the coronavirus pandemic, saying Beijing was increasingly adopting techniques honed by Moscow.

“Even before the Covid-19 crisis we assessed a particular level of coordination between Russia and therefore the PRC within the realm of propaganda,” said Lea Gabrielle, coordinator of the state department’s global engagement centre which tracks foreign propaganda.

“But with this pandemic the cooperation has accelerated rapidly,” she told reporters, during a continuing war of words between Washington and Beijing.

Leaders of the US congressional foreign affairs committees weighed in by writing to just about 60 countries asking them to support Taiwan’s participation within the World Health Organization, citing the necessity for the broadest effort possible to fight the coronavirus pandemic. The move is probably going to further inflame Sino-US relations as Taiwan isn't a member of the United Nations , and has been excluded from the WHO, thanks to objections from China, which considers Taiwan to be a part of its territory.

Taiwan has been seeking to hitch a ministerial meeting this month of the WHO’s decision-making body, the planet Health Assembly, with backing from Washington and a number of other US allies. Taiwan has argued that its exclusion from the WHO has created a dangerous gap within the global fight against the coronavirus.

China reported one new coronavirus case on Saturday and 15 new asymptomatic cases. the country’s total number of infections stood at 82,887, with the death total unchanged at 4,633, the national health authority said.

In Italy, the top of the infectious diseases department at the renowned Sacco hospital in Milan, Massimo Galli, said the northern city was “a little bit of a bomb” in terms of the virus spreading.

“We have a really high number of infected people returning to circulation,” he told La Repubblica, after photographs of individuals sitting along Milan’s canals enjoying aperitifs within the sunshine, many without wearing masks or respecting physical distancing rules, were splashed over the front pages of the country’s newspapers.

Milan’s mayor, Giuseppe Sala, said the behaviour was “shameful” and threatened to shut the well-known aperitif area if people persisted in flouting the principles . Almost 40% of Italy’s infections are within the Lombardy region, of which Milan is that the capital.

On Friday, Italy became the primary country within the European Union to pass 30,000 deaths from the virus. Britain, which left the EU in January, passed that milestone on Wednesday, and deaths on Friday stood at quite 31,300.

Travellers into the united kingdom are going to be quarantined for 2 weeks once they arrive as a part of measures to stop a second peak of the coronavirus pandemic, Boris Johnson is predicted to mention on Sunday when he lays out his roadmap out of the lockdown. He will announce the introduction of quarantine measures for people that reach airports, ports and Eurostar train stations, including for Britons coming back from abroad.

People are going to be asked to supply the address at which they're going to self-isolate for 2 weeks on arrival by filling out a digital form, consistent with a report within the Times newspaper.

Russia on Friday registered quite 10,000 new coronavirus cases for the sixth day during a row, after emerging as a replacement hotspot of the pandemic. the entire number of infections stood at nearly 188,000. The country also recorded 98 new deaths from the virus, for a complete of 1,723, and while some officials were considering softening the present lockdown, the WHO warned Russia was browsing a “delayed epidemic.”

WHO emergencies director Michael Ryan said during a virtual briefing must “learn a number of the lessons” which came at great cost in other parts of the planet .

What is your name?

I’m Kaka George. I’m a lawyer.

During the #EndSARS protests in Abuja, you were attacked and your car was damaged. What is the level of damage to your car?

It is a Toyota Prado 2008 model. The hoodlums damaged the front and rear windshields, all the windows, front and rear bumpers, and the boot as well. The repair cost was put at N300,000. We are looking for money and people have been generous.

How do you feel about the attack?

It is sad to see that the thugs could let themselves be manipulated when we were fighting for all of us. Just because of the N1,500 they said they were paid, they caused a damage of over N300,000. It is disheartening to see that fellow youths and citizens would allow themselves to be used in that way but we are pushing through it all and we are still taking our stand.
