In an address to journalists in the White House on Friday, President Donald Trump described the deadly COVID-19 virus as a “genius” living creature and a “very brilliant enemy.”
But the Coronavirus isn’t a living monster. It has no brain, he can’t breath at all, not even multiply. That’s why it’s so hard to kill.
The virus is a zombielike existence piece of NDA and RND material, surrounded by a crown-like protein shell, a one-thousandth the width of an eyelash. It becomes dangerous once it gets into a human airway. There, the virus penetrates the cells to create millions of versions of itself.
Trump revealed a deficiency in his understanding of the disease when he was asked about the testing for the virus across the country. Trump then answered: “This is a very brilliant enemy. You know, it’s a brilliant enemy. They develop drugs like antibiotics. You see it. Antibiotics used to solve every problem. Now one of the biggest problems the world has is the germ has gotten so brilliant that the antibiotic can’t keep up with it. And they’re constantly trying to come up with a new – people go to a hospital and they catch – they go for a heart operation – that’s no problem, but they end up dying from – from problems. You know the problems I’m talking about. There’s a whole genius to it.”
Trump was confusing between bacteria resistance to antibiotics and a virus that was never treated with antibiotics at all.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) states: “Antibiotics do not work against viruses, only bacteria.”
Philosopher AC Grayling tweeted: “Trump doesn’t know that antibiotics target bacteria not viruses. Covid-19 is a virus. Trump is an idiot. He is a dangerous idiot.”
