Trump shares Fauci’s advice on in-person voting amid COVID-19:
President Trump on Sunday shared Dr. Anthony Fauci’s advice on voting in person amid the coronavirus pandemic — after the expert said there’s “no reason” it can’t be done.
“‘If carefully done, according to the guidelines, there is no reason why you shouldn’t be able to do that (vote at polling place),’ ” the president wrote on Twitter, attributing the quote to Fauci.
The nation’s top infectious disease expert made the statement during a National Geographic event that aired Thursday.
Fauci, a member of the White House coronavirus task force, was asked by ABC News’s Deborah Roberts about concerns over heading to the polls amid the viral outbreak.
“Can people safely go out and vote in person, given that this year, there is so much concern around the vote?” Roberts asked. --->READ MORE HERE.
Louie Gohmert is COVID-19-free, and he credits hydroxychloroquine:
Rep. Louie Gohmert has recovered from the coronavirus and plans to donate plasma in the coming days, he told the Washington Examiner.
“I’m feeling really well, really great, actually,” the Texas Republican said.
Gohmert tested positive for the coronavirus on July 29 after taking a test at the White House ahead of a planned trip with President Trump.
Gohmert drove to Texas to self-quarantine and suffered several days of mild symptoms, including fatigue, but is now free of the virus, he said.
He tested negative for the virus and positive for the coronavirus antibodies this week. Gohmert said that he will donate plasma “as often as I am allowed” to help others recover from the virus.
Gohmert, who turns 67 next week, told the Washington Examiner he believes his recovery was aided by the use of vitamin supplements and hydroxychloroquine, the drug touted by Trump and some medical doctors that is not endorsed by the Food and Drug Administration for use in treating the coronavirus.
“I had a couple of bad days, but I started taking hydroxychloroquine, [Zithromax], and zinc, along with vitamins D3 and C," he said. "And I took a steroid nebulizer for a few days to help coat the alveoli in the lungs and protect them somewhat from the COVID virus attack.” --->READ MORE HERE
