Recently, Donald Trump and Melania Trump tested positive for coronavirus. After he was admitted to the hospital, everyone around the world started wishing death for him. Tweets began to trend where everyone was hoping for any fatal disease or even death. Twitter had to work to remove every such tweet as it violated the policies and the guidelines of the company. Anyone who is violating the policy, Twitter has changed their account to read-only mode. Twitter was then bashed for supporting people in the position of power and such rules are not applied to anyone else.
Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 2, 2020
The company came forward to clarify that any death wishing tweets will be removed as it is against the rules and regulations. Twitter even suspended many accounts and put up a restriction on abusive words. Trump tweeted on his official account about him testing positive and he will recover soon. Sean Conley, Trump’s personal doctor advised to move Trump from Johns Hopkins University to Walter Reed Military Medical Centre. After the news came out, many people started talking about numerous conspiracy theories.
How did people react to the news of President Donald Trump testing positive for the virus?
Many say that Trump is faking the COVID-19 diagnosis to distract everyone’s attention from his tax returns. He is only using it as an excuse to get out of answering any questions at the moment. One citizen even said that now he will show a sudden recovery stating hydroxychloroquine cured him to increase its sale. Some say that the US has already created the vaccine and just before the elections will be announcing about its recovery and vaccine to get citizens’ votes. One such statement also said that this was a strategy to infect Biden. Recently, the presidential debate happened where both of them were present but Biden tested negative for the virus.
After Trump contracted the virus, many people started trolling him as he was always against the concept of people wearing a mask. Trump has always refused to wear a mask and now, here is the consequence. Even though the mask cannot prevent the virus completely, studies say that people who wear masks have less chance of contracting the virus. United States has seen an increase in the COVID cases as the climate is getting chillier. Now, the country has around 7.6 million cases and 0.2 million deaths. The country is under a lot of fire with many controversies and protests happening across the country along with the climatic destruction. We have no idea when to expect the vaccine so that things can go back to normal.
