The President promised to wear a mask during a visit to the hospital.
President Donald Trump, on Saturday, will visit American military personnel hospitalized at a military medical center in the suburbs of Washington, the White House said.
In an interview with Fox News, Trump promised to wear a mask during his visit to the Walter Reed national military medical center in Bethesda, Maryland. He added that it would be “very appropriate.”
In addition to meeting with soldiers who were injured, Trump will meet with medical workers who are curbing the spread of the coronavirus.
Trump is always criticized for not wearing masks and not promoting their use. It is still unknown whether Trump will be photographed wearing a mask since such visits are often conducted without media accompaniment to protect the privacy of wounded soldiers.
According to Johns Hopkins University, it was reported on Saturday that more than 3.2 million people in the United States had been infected with the coronavirus since the beginning of the pandemic, which is about a quarter of the nearly 12.6 million cases worldwide. Since the beginning of the epidemic, more than 134,000 Americans have been victims of COVID-19, which also accounts for more than a quarter of the nearly 562,000 coronavirus deaths worldwide.
