Can we stop reporting things he says and only report things people with medical education/training/expertise say? He thinks after announcing half hearted lockdowns it'll peak? Nah. The only time this peaks is two weeks after everyone in the country starts staying away from each other. It's not going to happen.

Given his predictive record, who in their right mind would believe that? 2 years with him in charge! Meaning, it probably won't. It'll probably peak in 3 to 4 weeks. It will be huge b/c Trump is inept & called it a hoax without doing anything about it. And what the fuck would he know about it? Why are you reporting this drivel?

Coronavirus: Donald Trump wishes Boris Johnson 'speedy recovery' after positive testBoris Johnson announced that he had tested positive for coronavirus on Friday, followed by his Health Secretary Matt Hancock.
