In other news, Trump is checking himself out of the hospital against medical advice and even though he's still symptomatic and could spread the virus to anyone near him.
Meanwhile, about 210,000 Americans have now been killed by the coronavirus.
Finally, the World Health Organization (WHO) estimates about 10 percent of the planet has likely been infected now.
Mike Ryan, the WHO’s top emergency expert, was addressing the agency’s Executive Board, where the United States made a thinly veiled swipe at China for what it called a “failure” to provide accurate and timely information on the outbreak. [...]
Ryan said that outbreaks were surging in parts of southeast Asia and that cases and deaths were on the rise in parts of Europe and the eastern Mediterranean region.
“Our current best estimates tell us about 10% of the global population may have been infected by this virus. It varies depending on country, it varies from urban to rural, it varies depending on groups. But what it does mean is that the vast majority of the world remains at risk,” Ryan said.
“We are now heading into a difficult period. The disease continues to spread,” he said.
Look at this motherfucker
I will be leaving the great Walter Reed Medical Center today at 6:30 P.M. Feeling really good! Don’t be afraid of Covid. Don’t let it dominate your life. We have developed, under the Trump Administration, some really great drugs & knowledge. I feel better than I did 20 years ago!

He's telling people to go out and get infected and possibly die. He either doesn't know, or doesn't care -- or both -- that literally no one else has access to the experimental treatment he just received for free.
This really pisses me off because some people, like me, can't afford to just get sick on a whim; because we want to go to a BBQ or something. It's too big of a risk. I haven't gone out anywhere just for fun since April.
