Trump falsely claimed on Twitter that Covid-19 is “far less lethal” than the flu on his first day back at the White House after being hospitalized for 3 days with coronavirus.
Although still contagious, president reverted to his default position that the risk of the pandemic has been blown out of proportion, despite a death count that has soared over 210K US citizens on his watch.
“Flu season is coming up! Many people every year, sometimes over 100,000, and despite the Vaccine, die from the Flu. Are we going to close down our Country? No, we have learned to live with it, just like we are learning to live with Covid, in most populations far less lethal!!!” Trump tweeted.
Trump’s comments come just hours after his return to the White House on Monday night in which he ripped off his face cover on a balcony, making it clear that he has little intention of abiding by best containment practices.
