Don’t listen to Trump who continues to downplay the threat of the Coronavirus. Today the head of the World Health Organisation today told governments to ‘act aggressively’ to contain the ‘global coronavirus crisis. ‘

Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, echoing the comments of our own CDC, warned that it would be a ‘fatal mistake, quite literally’ for other nations to assume they will not be affected by the outbreak.

As news comes that a case of the virus has been discovered in a patient in Northern Californa, Trump tried to calm the nation by appointing his V.P. Mike Pence — who has no medical training — to run America’s response to the deadly disease.
