US President Donald Trump believes that lockdowns introduced in several states due to the coronavirus pandemic are causing more damage than the virus itself. The American leader published the corresponding message on Saturday, December 26, on his Twitter page.
According to the head of the White House, the lockdown ruins lives of many people and the damage from its introduction is worse than the damage caused by the virus itself. As Donald Trump noted, despite the lockdown, in particular, in California, the number of infected has increased.
"The lockdowns in Democrat run states are absolutely ruining the lives of so many people - Far more than the damage that would be caused by the China Virus. Cases in California have risen despite the lockdown, yet Florida & others are open & doing well. Common sense please!"
Trump calls Covid-19 the "China Virus", thus emphasizing where the pandemic emerged.
As we reported earlier, World Health Organization Chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus warned that the coronavirus crisis will not be the last pandemic, therefore countries must strengthen their healthcare systems and be prepared for new emergencies.
