In a White House Coronavirus meeting, Donald Trump said the "germ is so brilliant antibiotics can’t keep up with it."
To make matters worse, he said this on the day that COVID-19 became the number one cause of death among Americans. POTUS as he's dubbed himself confused the viral disease with a bacterial infection, and suggested it could be treated with antibiotics.
When asked by a journalist about testing for COVID-19 in the US, Mr Trump replied: “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."
Over 500,000 American citizens have COVID-19. As we've said before, always do your due diligence when you get new information: antibiotics are never used to fight viruses, only bacterial infections.
