While satisfactory progress in the research of vaccines, as well as having solved the shortage of tests and a result, artificial respirators, the president has for the first time adopted a tone of scaremongering about the spread of the epidemic in the south and west of the country, up to “imploring” young people to “avoid the crowded bars”.

“As you know, these past few weeks, we have seen an alarming rise of cases in many regions of the south,” said Donald Trump.
