President Trump has acknowledged reducing the coronovirus threat, which has now killed more than 190,000 Americans, according to interviews with noted journalist Bob Woodward for his new book months ago. Now, the White House is struggling to manage the collapse. In the interview, Trump admitted that he was first discovered weeks before the US Kovid-19 death was confirmed, that the virus is dangerous, aerial, highly contagious, and “even more deadly than your hard current.” Nevertheless, in a March interview he said, “I still like to play it, because I don’t want to create a panic.” Woodward recorded 18 wide-ranging interviews with Trump’s permission, and CNN has obtained copies of some audio tapes. Democratic presidential candidates who are among those who refute the words of Biden Trump say they represent the “life-and-betrayal of the American people.”
Global deaths from coronaviruses have now risen to over 900,000, and countries such as France, Britain and Indonesia have considered or implemented new restrictions to prevent the spread. In the US, schools are still struggling to file cases. Coronovirus cases have been reported in colleges in all 50 states. More than 2,000 students and faculty at the University of Tennessee are subject to quarantine or segregation due to Kovid-19 threats, and have similar stories on campuses across the country. As a vaccine, the International Air Transport Association states that providing a worldwide dose would be a “mission of the century”. Not only does this feat require the use of 8,000 cargo jets, the group says it also requires a ton of planning – and countries need it now.
According to a new report by Senate Democrats, US pharmacies have seen “significant and increasing” delays in the delivery of prescription drugs through the US Postal Service, led by Postmaster General Louis Dejoy. Pharmacists relied heavily on the USPS for the report. Dejoy also investigated the changes made in the summer of this year, causing widespread delays across the country, although the Postal Service has attributed service disruptions to the coronovirus epidemic. The US OPS chief now faces more scrutiny after the House Oversight Committee announced that Trump Donor would begin an investigation into Trump Donor reimbursing employees for donating to GJ candidates.
The US has canceled more than 1,000 Chinese national visas since the beginning of June as part of a program considered by graduate students and researchers to have ties with the Chinese military. Such people, the US State Department says, are considered a security risk. This is part of a wider crackdown on the ongoing Chinese effort to steal “sensitive United States technologies and intellectual property” over fears of the White House. While the number of revoked visas is low compared with the 369,000 Chinese nationals studied in the US, it certainly does nothing to improve relations between the two countries. Meanwhile, more than 160 human rights groups around the world have signed a letter stating that Beijing should not host the 2022 Olympics in the wake of alleged widespread human rights abuses.
Two Myanmar soldiers have admitted on video the mass murder and rape of Rohingya Muslims in 2017. Two desert video statements were filmed by a rebel group fighting the Myanmar army and are deemed credible by a humanitarian group. If the confessional statements are valid, they would represent the first admission by members of Myanmar’s military that a campaign of violence against a minority ethnic group took place in the country’s western Rakhine state. Both soldiers are now believed to be in the International Criminal Court in The Hague where the Rohingya crisis is under investigation. Human rights advocates say their horrifying accounts can be a great help to the Rohingya people in their struggle for justice.
