Sih Hill’s Morning Report – Sponsored by Jobs Ohio – Showdown: Trump-Biden Debate Possibly Nasty White House steps up surprise medical bills | Increasing cases of coronavirus lead to more severe winters Said President TrumpDonald John claims to participate in Trump-Trump-Biden debate Democrats tore up Trump for not condemning white supremacists, boys of pride in further debateClaims about his attitude towards the benefits of facial masks were “taken out of context.”

In an interview aired Thursday on ABC News’ “Get Started” podcast, Fawcett said public health officials did not recommend people wearing masks at the onset of the epidemic because of a lack of personal protective equipment for health professionals.

“So the feeling was that people who wanted to keep masks in the community, like just people in the street, could raise masks and exacerbate the shortage of masks. In that regard, we said we didn’t recommend masks,” Fawcett said.

During a presidential debate focused on the Covid-19 epidemic on Tuesday, Trump indicated that his health officials had changed his mind, noting that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) did not always recommend the use of face masks.

“Dr. [Anthony] “Foxy said the opposite, he said very emphatically that the mask is not good and then he changed his mind, he said the mask is good,” Trump said.

During the “Get Started Here” interview, Foki said scientists quickly changed their recommendation after realizing the extent to which asymptomatic spread is contributing to covid-19 infection.

“Now, months and months ago, on the air, on the radio, on TV, I urge people to wear masks. And I’m talking about wearing masks, keeping a physical distance, avoiding crowds, washing your hands and Do more things in front of the house, outside the house. ”

Trump has repeatedly questioned the effectiveness of masks in the past, and has rarely worn them himself.

During Tuesday’s debate in Cleveland, Trump said they wear masks when needed, but added that everyone in the debate hall had already been tested for Covid-19 and they were sitting at a physical distance from each other.

He always made fun of Biden by wearing “the biggest mask I’ve ever seen”.

When the CDC officially recommended the use of face ingots on April 1, Trump said he would not wear them.

“I won’t do it personally. It’s a recommendation,” he said at the time.
