Donald Trump horrified the Americans again! How he relaxed on a sad day for the United States
Donald Trump once again provoked the indignation of the American public opinion - even on the day when the officials from Washington announced a devastating balance of the coronavirus epidemic, the president of the United States preferred to play golf!
Trump has chosen to relax on Memorial Day, a day to pay tribute to the American military who gave their lives for their country.
But instead of a visit to the Pentagon or Arlington Cemetery where many war heroes are buried, Trump went to his golf club, which he had not visited for more than two months.
And at the White House, the death toll from coronavirus was close to 100,000, a figure that puts the United States at the top of both casualties and infections, over 1.6 million people.
Asked about the fact that instead of mourning he plays golf, President Trump said he hopes to resume golf tournaments as soon as possible.
"We want life back to normal as soon as possible. I can't wait to see golfers again and enjoy the same experience as mine," Trump said.
Massive increase in emergency calls after Trump urges Americans to inject disinfectant against COVID-19
The Maryland (northeast) emergency line and the Toxicological Information Center (anti-poison) in New York saw a surge in calls due to disinfectant injection after President Donald Trump presented it as a possible "remedy" on Thursday. "Against Covid-19, writes the American press.
Hundreds of people called Maryland to learn more about the benefits of using a disinfectant, such as bleach or household detergents. These phone calls prompted authorities to issue an emergency alert and post a message on Twitter warning that "under no circumstances should a disinfectant be administered to the body by injection or otherwise."
In New York, health officials said they had received an "unusually large" number of people contacting them, according to White House residents.
The anti-poison centre in New York, a sub-agency of the city's Department of Health, received 30 calls Thursday night through Friday afternoon, twice as many as usual.
None of the people who contacted the centre died and did not need hospitalization.
Donald Trump said he was sarcastic when he said he urged Americans to inject disinfectant
"I find that the disinfectant removes the virus in a minute. Wouldn't there be a way to do this by injecting it inside or something like that? As you can see, he's getting into his lungs, he's doing a lot of things there, so it would be interesting to see that happen, "Trump said Thursday at a White House briefing.
The American president returned on Friday on the statements he made. Trump said he was "sarcastic" when he called for disinfectant injections. But he said just minutes later that it was a serious idea and asked government experts to study it.
9 changes to air travel after coronavirus
Passengers will wear masks from the entrance of the airport of departure to the exit of the airport of destination, the companions will not be allowed to enter the airport except in exceptional cases, and the high temperature will not be a good reason to refuse to board the passenger. All these rules, plus many others, are found in the protocol prepared by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) for air travel.
On 21 May 2020, the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) issued a guide, "COVID-19 Aviation Health Safety Protocol", a set of rules for air travel in during the COVID-19 pandemic. The guide is valid for EU countries, but we will certainly have similar regulations around the world. It is enough to browse the document to understand that we are entering a new era of air travel. Just as much has changed since the 9/11 attacks, so much will change now.
- First of all, common sense is used. For example, airlines are not required to sell fewer tickets so that flights can no longer be cost-effective, but it is recommended that physical distance be respected where possible.
- Thermal scanning will not be done at all airports. In addition, the two European institutions recognize the limits of passenger thermal scanning. If, say, the passenger is over 38 degrees, he is not invited to the door outside, the temperature is checked once more, then the man is directed to a specialized control, also at the airport. It does not start from the beginning that the passenger with high temperature is sick with COVID-19.
- The basic principle is that people with symptoms of COVID-19 should be discouraged from arriving at the airport. How is this done? One of the recommendations made by EASA / ECDC to airlines is to reimburse the value of the passenger's ticket which proves, on the basis of a medical certificate, that it is confirmed with COVID-19. Refunds are made up to 6 hours before the flight.
- Airlines must also inform their passengers of COVID-19 symptoms before they show up at the airport: when checking in online, via SMS, etc. But not more than 24 hours before the flight.
- Passengers will complete a self-declaration that they are not sick with COVID-19 before receiving the boarding pass. It is preferable that this statement can be completed when checking in. Passengers will assume that if they lie in this statement, they may not be allowed to board the plane.
- Each airport will have a specific person designated to coordinate the activities and implementation of anti-COVID-19 security measures.
- Access to airports will only be allowed to passengers, flight crew and airport staff. Not the people who accompany the passengers. As an exception, persons accompanying passengers with disabilities, minors, etc. will be allowed to enter airports.
- Passengers are urged to check in online to avoid airport formalities as much as possible.
- Passengers will wear a mask from the entrance to the airport of departure to the exit of the airport of destination. Exceptions: security checks and border control. People with provable health problems and children under 6 are also exempt.
What people are doing during quarantine? A collection of funny answers for Jimmy Fallon question.😂
When staying in quarantine, people start creating funny things. Some people invent funny games, other creative occupations. While spending the whole day at home, let’s see how others are spending their time, maybe we find something good for us.
A person in lockdown starts seeing his house as a big and luxurious castle, or a battlefield, even that floor is lava. Jimmy Fallon was wandering where the human creation can get, and started a challenge with the hashtag #ImSoBored.
The comedian asked people to tell him funny things they have done to pass the time in quarantine. Yes, boredom is the path to creationism, new ideas and funny actions.
James Thomas Fallon is an American comedian, actor, television host, writer, and producer. He is known for his work in television as a cast member on Saturday Night Live and as the host of late-night talk show The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and before that Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
The Tonight Show is the third longest running show on NBC,and due to coronavirus it got a quarantine rendition. Since Fallon’s show, Jimmy Kimmel Live! and other late-night shows that spread good mood and fun have suspended production due to the pandemic, the Fallon found a good solution. Jimmy created the "At Home Edition” episode which are coming out live from Fallon’s home.
Countries are intensely preparing to welcome their tourists. This is also the case of the French who have already arranged the first beach during the pandemic, with separate areas to respect the distance. People are sunbathing in pens on Couchant Beach.
The new beach makes the holidays completely different than you knew them. As soon as people enter the airport, they go through filters to prove that they are healthy, wear a mask, including on the plane, and on landing undergo other checks. No one assumes that a person infected with coronavirus will enter their country. And once you arrive at the hotel it is possible to find out that only one in two rooms is occupied or that the neighboring hotel is closed.
There is no need for congestion in the resort, at bars and especially on the beach, where equally drastic measures are taken.
If in Italy, on the beach, we could sit on sunbeds between plexiglass panels, in France, on Couchant beach, some kind of pens were arranged. Tourists sit in the sun on the sand, surrounded by four pairs tied with string between them. That is practically the perimeter in which they are allowed to move.
Couchant Beach is located in La Grande-Motte, a town in the south of France. It is known for its fine sand and wide beaches, with many yachts anchored ashore. One night accommodation at a 3-star hotel costs on average 490 lei, and at a 5-star hotel, 807 lei.
"People are likely to travel less abroad, and holidays at home may become commonplace. Travel must be based on mutual respect, solidarity and responsibility, ”says Andy Rutherford, founder of the UK-based travel company Fresh Eyes.
