US President Donald Trump for the first time during the coronavirus pandemic appeared in public in a medical mask. It is reported by CNN.
The head of state put on an individual protective equipment during a visit to the Walter Reed Hospital in a suburb of Washington, where he is undergoing treatment, including military personnel injured in the war zone. He was wearing a dark blue mask with a gold presidential seal in the lower left. “I think it’s great to wear a mask. I have never been against masks. But everything has its own time and place, ”said the American leader.
On July 10, the American leader promised for the first time to put on a mask publicly. According to the head of state, wearing a mask in a hospital is extremely appropriate. He noted that he was concerned about the possibility of transferring any bacteria from him to patients. “I have no problems with the mask,” Trump emphasized.
Earlier, the head of state claimed that, wearing a mask on his face, he looks like a Western character. He admitted that he once wore a black face mask and even liked the way he looked in it. In addition, the president expressed support for wearing masks, noting that “this is good.”
During the coronavirus epidemic, Trump, despite official authorities’ recommendations, repeatedly appeared at public events without a mask. For this, he was repeatedly criticized by both political opponents and ordinary citizens on social networks.
As of July 12, in the world there are more than 12.5 million infected with coronavirus, of which more than 561 thousand died, another 6.9 million recovered. Most infected are in the USA, Brazil, India, Russia and Peru.
