Legislators allege Presidency trivialize pandemic by disregarding lasting impacts of the Coronavirus infection.
A body of legislators alleged that the Presidency trivialized the perils of the Covid19 pandemic by disregarding the grave and lasting impacts of the virus on some victims. The legislators wrote a letter to Vice President; Mike Pence requesting that he should summarize how the Presidency’s Covid19 Task Force intends to handle the matter of lasting health impacts of the infection.
In their letter to the Presidency, Democrats Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin, Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Tina Smith of Minnesota and Bernie Sanders of Vermont are quoted as saying, "As the number of new COVID-19 cases in the United States reaches new highs daily, the failure to fully understand, communicate, and address the chronic long-term morbidity risks from the disease would represent a new and dramatic public health failure on top of the Trump Administration's initial and ongoing failure to contain the disease."
The W. H. O,'s representative, Dr. Mike Ryan mentioned that a lot of victims endure lasting fatigue and deficient lung condition. Quoting him, he said, "Even if you're not going to die from it, and even if you're not going to be admitted to the hospital, a significant minority of people; even young people find it hard to make a full and immediate recovery from the disease."
The legislators observed that research-based reports about these draw-backs have been intensifying for weeks running. According to the legislators in an extract from their letter to the Presidency; "In the face of this mounting evidence, President Trump and other White House officials have falsely and dangerously continued to belittle the risks of the growing pandemic," "President Trump has falsely tried to assure the public that '99%' of coronavirus cases are 'harmless' and has repeatedly claimed that the virus will one day just 'disappear,”
The legislators requested that Vice President Mike Pence provide concrete answers to the questions asked on the method the task force is using to assess the threats to victims that have survived the deadly disease. They have also requested that answers be provided by 31st July.
