Trump says, “Don’t be afraid of Covid.” Is that a good message or a dangerous one?

DC – President Trump's campaign sent out an email to supporters Tuesday morning, declaring "I'm Back!" after being hospitalized for three days after being struck be the COVID 19 virus. 

Trump's message Tuesday morning is stirring controversy – some say Trump's words were inspiring, other say they're foolish and misguided. He wrote:

Yesterday, I left Walter Reed after receiving incredible care and I'm feeling really good! In fact, I feel better than I did 20 years ago.

I'm telling you: Don't be afraid of Covid. Don't let it dominate your life! This is the greatest country in the world, and under the Trump Administration, we have developed some really great drugs and knowledge. WE WILL BEAT THIS, TOGETHER!

The love and support from Americans from all over the world has been incredible and is something I'll never forget. When I saw many great Patriots outside of the hospital supporting me, I knew I had to drive by and thank them!

Now, I am fired up and ready to KEEP FIGHTING FOR YOU! This is the FINAL STRETCH of the Election and we can't take any days off.

What do you think? Is the message "Don't be afraid of Covid" a good, inspiring message or a dangerous one?

Over 209,000 Americans have succumbed to the virus, according to the Center of Disease Control.

  1. Really, this is a no brainer. Right now the average life expectancy in the U.S. is roughly 78 years of age (note #1). In other words it is rational expect to be dead by the age of 78. Now take a look at the COVID-19 chart (See note #2). The precise point that the graph jumps is for those who have already exceeded their life expectancy.
    So this COID-19 amounts to hysteria and this hiding from COVID-19 nonsense is simply keeping us from not only acquiring herd immunity but enjoying life. Sweden has had the correct model, go about your life. If you are over 78, hunker down, visit the grandchildren by webcam – whatever, but for those who are under 70 clearly just go about life(once again look at the chart in note #2 re: Relative risk of dying from Covid-19)

  2. It’s a great message. Of course the  virus is dangerous like all viruses are, but each individual must take the precautions necessary within his/her age group, and then go on living  Fear about Covid is more debilitating than the virus itself. Shutting down the nation and the schools is insane!
