Donald Trump has updated his US coronavirus travel ban to now include the UK and Ireland and confirmed that he has undergone tests for the disease.
While it is good to see the president taking some responsibility on this very serious issue there are still some things that his administration needs to improve on, such as basic hygiene.
During Saturday's press conference at the White House, surgeon turned secretary of housing and urban development, Ben Carson, took to the stage to address the administration's ongoing efforts against the virus.
Except within just a few seconds of his speech he had already coughed, spread germs on the podium and touched his face, which are some of the key things that the experts have told everyone not to do.
Trump disbanded the entire White House pandemic preparedness team. But don’t worry, Ben Carson’s a doctor.
The fact that Carson is a brain surgeon and still did this is perhaps the most shocking aspect of the entire clip. Of all people, he should know better, but then again this new way of living might take a while for even the experts to get used to. Regardless, people were aghast to see Carson use such poor hygiene at a crucial time.
