Mike Pence leveled with the American people on this horrible coronavirus reality
Vice President Mike Pence is heading up President Trump’s coronavirus task force.
It’s up to Pence to coordinate the recommendations of the health experts to translate into options he can present to the President so there can be a clear and informed decision making process.
That’s when Mike Pence leveled with the American people on this horrible coronavirus reality.
Vice President Pence took the podium at the daily task force press briefing and stressed to Americans the importance of following the President’s social distancing guidelines.
Pence sought to shut down the belief among some Americans that this was just the flu when the Vice President warned the public that the Chinese coronavirus was three times more contagious than the season flu.
“We need every American to put into practice the president’s guidelines . . . because the coronavirus is about three times more contagious than the flu according to our best estimate,” Pence told reporters.
Pence added it was possible to transmit the virus even when you weren’t showing symptoms.
“You can contract coronavirus and have mild symptoms if any, not even be aware that you have it and expose someone who is vulnerable to a serious health outcome,” Pence added.
Finally, the Vice President implored the public to stick together and if everyone observed the social distance recommendations the American people could stop the spread of the Chinese coronavirus.
“It is going to take all of us working together to make sure we are safe,” Pence said.
Even fake news reporters applaud Pence’s performance in the briefings as calming and reassuring the American people.
Trump supporters also agree that putting Pence in charge of the task force was one of the President’s best decisions.
Americans have put their trust in these social distancing guidelines and now it remains to be seen how effective they are and how long they will be put in place.
