Americans losing faith in what Trump says about the coronavirus: Poll

first_imgA majority of Americans said they were concerned about how the coronavirus is spreading, according to the poll, as the number of COVID-19 cases surpassed 1 million people in the United States this week, killing more than 56,000.Trump publicly mused about the benefits of “cleaning” COVID-19 patients on the insides with disinfectants or ultraviolet light during a news conference last week, directing health officials in the room to look into it.Medical experts immediately condemned the president’s suggestion, and the makers of disinfectant products warned the public against ingesting them. Trump later tried to portray his remarks as sarcasm, but given his popularity with some Americans, health officials expressed concern his remarks would persuade some people to poison themselves.Overall, Trump’s overall popularity has not changed much over the past week. Forty-three percent of Americans said they approve of his overall job performance, and the same number also approve of his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic. Topics : Among registered voters, 44% said they would vote for Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, while 40% said they would back Trump if the election were held today.The Reuters/Ipsos poll was conducted online, in English, throughout the United States. It gathered responses from 1,001 adults, including 416 Democrats and 419 Republicans.center_img Americans appear to be losing faith in what President Donald Trump says about the coronavirus pandemic, with almost everyone rejecting Trump’s remark that COVID-19 may be treated by injecting infected people with bleach or other disinfectants, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll released on Tuesday.The April 27-28 public opinion poll found that fewer than half of all adults in the US – 47% – said they were “very” or “somewhat” likely to follow recommendations Trump makes about the virus. That is 15 percentage points lower than the number who said they would follow Trump’s advice in a survey that ran at the end of March.And 98% of Americans said they would not try to inject themselves with bleach or other disinfectants if they got the coronavirus, including 98% of Democrats and 98% of Republicans. That is a near-unanimous rejection of an idea that Trump floated at a time of widespread anxiety about the virus.last_img read more

Governor and First Lady Wolf Join Health Professionals, Advocates, & Legislators to Denounce Senate Bill 3

first_img February 17, 2017 Governor and First Lady Wolf Join Health Professionals, Advocates, & Legislators to Denounce Senate Bill 3 SHARE Email Facebook Twittercenter_img Press Release,  Public Health,  Women’s Rights Abington, PA – Governor Tom Wolf and First Lady Frances Wolf today joined women’s health advocates and medical professionals, along with Representative Madeleine Dean, Senator Art Haywood, Representative Steve McCarter, and Representative Mary Jo Daley to denounce the fast-tracking of Senate Bill 3 which would eliminate a woman’s right to make choices about her own health care in consultation with her doctor.“I want to thank the members of the General Assembly who have stood against this bill. Let me be clear: Should Senate Bill 3 reach my desk, I will veto it,” Governor Wolf said. “I am not threatening a veto out of partisanship, or due to some political back and forth. I am promising this veto to demonstrate that Pennsylvania will not play games with women’s healthcare in our Commonwealth. Simply put, this legislation severely limits women’s ability to make informed and timely decisions about their own health care options. That is not the place of government.”“Senate Bill 3 is an unwise, unscientific, unvetted, and unconstitutional bill,” said Representative Madeleine Dean. “It is dangerous and is anti-woman, seeks to take both the choice and the decision making away from a woman, her doctor and her family—and bizarrely puts critical medical decisions in the hands of the Pennsylvania legislature.  All of this without so much as a hearing or consultation with experts and doctors.”Senate Bill 3 proposes the most extreme restrictions on abortion in the country. It would ban abortions after twenty weeks except in the rarest of circumstances, leaving no exceptions for rape, incest, health or tragic fetal anomalies. The bill would also ban one of the safest methods of second trimester abortions, putting women at risk and taking crucial decisions about their medical care out of the hands of their trusted medical providers.“This vote was based upon a bunch of quacks,” said Senator Art Haywood. “There’s no medical basis for the decisions a group of non-doctors have made. And they made this decision on behalf of Pennsylvania’s women without the input of those women or the doctors who serve them.”The Pennsylvania Senate recently passed the bill, despite bi-partisan opposition, through committee and the floor in just three days with limited debate and no expert witnesses or public hearings. The bill now awaits action by the House of Representatives, where a similar version passed last session.Governor and First Lady Wolf were joined today by women who have had to make devastating decisions about their pregnancies. If SB 3 were to be passed, women facing the same circumstances would be stripped of their right to make these personal, family decisions.“I am grateful for the one element of control I had in an otherwise powerless situation: the decision to end our pregnancy and with it our son’s pain and suffering,” said Erica Goldblatt Hyatt. “This is the paradox, I learned, of being a mother: in my case, loving my son so deeply that it meant choosing to say goodbye. Though that choice rests on my heart every day, I know it was the right one for our family, and I am grateful to live in a State where our Governor supports the rights of women like me to make it, autonomously, with those who know and love her best.”Like Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: read more

No concerns for Pellegrini

first_imgManchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini is confident his side can maintain their ferocious pace until the end of the season. Only once during that run have they had a gap of more than four days between games and the fixtures continue to come thick and fast. Fresh from securing their place in the Capital One Cup final in midweek, City host Watford in the FA Cup fourth round on Saturday before travelling to Tottenham in the Barclays Premier League next Wednesday. Despite the tough schedule, Pellegrini has no concerns that his team could run out of steam. The Chilean said: “No, I don’t think we are going to have some problems in that sense. “Maybe we will have problems with other teams – they are good teams – but I think we are making good rotations during the whole year. “Also, the way we play we have a lot of possession of the ball, so we rest by not always running after the ball.” Pellegrini’s determination to play an exciting, attacking brand of football has not wavered, no matter which XI he sends out on the field. He sees no reason to have to compromise his beliefs just because the depth of his squad might be tested in the coming months, particularly when the Champions League challenge resumes next month. The 60-year-old said: “The style, of course we are going to try and continue until the end. “I don’t know if we are going to win all the games but we are going to try to continue. “I said from the beginning of the season that the most important thing is to have a style and after that to have 11 starters.” Pellegrini’s predecessor Roberto Mancini this week suggested he should receive some credit for the way City are playing this season. Mancini assembled much of the squad and led City to Premier League and FA Cup success before being sacked last May. Pellegrini, speaking at a press conference, was not interested in responding to Mancini’s comments. He said: “I don’t think anything about that. If it is his opinion, everyone can say what he thinks is true. “I am not the best person to analyse. It is not for me or him to compare.” City are still in contention for four trophies and have scored a remarkable 106 goals in their 35 games so far this term. They have won 16 of their last 18 matches – and drawn the other two – stretching back to the last international break in November. Press Associationlast_img read more

Rodgers: Balotelli going nowhere

first_img Rodgers said: “It’s not some thing that I have even thought about to be honest. We’ve had a lot of games this season in a lot of competitions. At this moment in time the key for me is trying to keep the squad together.” While Balotelli continues to struggle to find his feet at Anfield since his £16m move from AC Milan in the summer, Rodgers has been forced to juggle his forwards to find a combination which goes some way to fill the void left by the absence of Sturridge and the departed Luis Suarez. Raheem Sterling is currently the latest player leading the line and he performed admirably in that role again against Burnley on Boxing Day. His decisive strike on the hour took him to three goals in his last three matches, and Rodgers believes that he has a lot to offer in a position which he is quickly adapting to. “I think Raheem and anyone with that type of pace will always stretch teams and will always make defenders think,” he said. “He’s a different type and not your natural number nine. For me it’s more about the position than the player. For the team to function well, that pace in the team is very important for us.” Sterling is likely to be supported by both Phillipe Coutinho and Adam Lalanna when Swansea visit Anfield on Sunday. Rodgers was full of praise for the duo and the opportunities they have created for their team-mate -it was an inventive flick from the Brazilian which created the goal at Burnley. “I think that Adam and Philippe are playing in a role that suits them perfectly really. The key is obviously the work rate as well. They press the ball well, they work very, very hard.” Reports in the striker’s homeland have suggested that former club Inter Milan, where Balotelli rose to prominence, may be looking at a loan move for him in the new year in light of his poor start to life at Anfield. But Rodgers insists he has no plans to further weaken a forward line which is already lacking the injured Daniel Sturridge. There will be no route back to Italy for Mario Balotelli this January, according to Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers. Press Association And Emre Can was another who received praise from Rodgers. “He played centre half in one of the games I took in last year to go and see him. He played at centre half in a 4-2-3-1. He’s got a big future hear at Anfield it’s just been curtailed a little since the summer when he was trying to gain his fitness,” he said. “He had an ankle issue that made him miss training and he was in and out. He’s got great athleticism and you saw in his presence on the pitch yesterday (against Burnley) that he’s an outstanding footballer. “He’s a very young player just acclimatising to the game over here. His favourite position is as a more defensive player even though I’ve played him in a more attack role because I’d like him to do more of that. “But he’s a player that if you asked him his profile it would be to sit and play in that defensive role where he can play and dictate the game and be physical in the duel. “Him coming on against Burnley gave us that assurance in possession and also that physicality when we didn’t have the ball. He’s someone I know can play in a number of positions and someone I know his influence will become greater as the season goes on.” last_img read more
