While the Democrats held their party conference online, Donald Trump’s Republicans invited them to their White House event. The company’s own Corona recommendations were even disregarded.
At the end of the US Republican Party Congress, the organizers did not comply with the recommendations for protection against corona infections. According to US media reports, about 1,500 guests gathered in the garden of the White House on Thursday evening (local time) to hear the speech of US President Donald Trump. The chairs were close together, as shown on TV images. Most of the guests were not wearing protective masks. Some shook hands in the crowded crowd before the event began.
The campaign team said health workers had worked with Republicans to ensure the safety of the people at the convention was taken into account. The strict protocols are in accordance with the guidelines of the CDC health authority.
In the United States, more than 180,000 people have died after being infected with the coronavirus, according to statistics from the University of Johns Hopkins. In the first three days of the four-day party conference alone, the pandemic claimed the lives of about 3,000 people. The Democrats surrounding presidential candidate Joe Biden accuse Trump of not protecting Americans from the pandemic. Trump and Biden will face each other in the November 3 election.
