Trump’s Message on Virus Draws Scrutiny
Public-health experts say president needs to give consistent guidance on disease’s severity and how the sick can help prevent its spread
WASHINGTON?President Trump is trying to ease anxieties about coronavirus. Public-health experts say he may be sowing confusion in the process.
Mr. Trump drew fresh scrutiny after an interview on Fox News Wednesday in which he questioned the death rate associated with the virus and the severity of its impact on the public.
“A lot of people will have this, and it’s very mild,” Mr. Trump said to host Sean Hannity. “They will get better very rapidly. They don’t even see a doctor. They don’t even call a doctor.”
He added: “So, if we have thousands or hundreds of thousands of people that get better just by, you know, sitting around and even going to work?some of them go to work, but they get better.”
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advises that people who are “mildly ill” with Covid-19, the disease caused by the new coronavirus, “should restrict activities outside your home, except for getting medical care. Do not go to work, school, or public areas.”
Speaking at a town hall sponsored by Fox News on Thursday night, Mr. Trump again sought to calm nerves, saying the economy remained strong and that he liked that people may travel more domestically due to restrictions.
“It’s all going to work out. Everybody has to be calm,” he said.
But he has at times seemed to obscure the administration’s message by minimizing risks and dispensing information that was incorrect or contradicted by other officials. He has also given varying accounts of the severity of the crisis.
“What is needed right now from the White House is a consistent, coherent message that is based on public health science but also tells the public what we know and don’t know and what lies ahead,” he said.
Crystal Watson, a senior scholar at the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, said the government can diminish credibility when it appears to be issuing mixed messages.
“It results in a loss of trust in government and authorities,” said Ms. Watson, who works on public-health emergencies, including infectious diseases.
On Fox Wednesday, the president also questioned the fatality rate of the virus. The World Health Organization this week stated a mortality rate of 3.4% based on deaths in confirmed cases so far, but experts have cautioned the actual death rate is lower. Other estimates have put it around 2%. The death rate for seasonal flu is typically around 0.1%.
Mr. Trump said he had a “hunch” it was lower than 3.4%, noting that there could be many undiagnosed cases.
“You never hear about those people. So, you can’t put them down in the category of the overall population in terms of this corona flu and?or virus,” Mr. Trump said.
Vice President Mike Pence headed to Washington state Thursday to meet with the state’s governor to review the virus response. He also stopped in Minnesota, where he met with the CEO of 3M, a company that makes protective masks.
Questions about the administration’s messaging hung over Mr. Pence’s meeting with Gov. Jay Inslee, a Democrat, who tweeted last week that during a call with the vice president, he “told him our work would be more successful if the Trump administration stuck to the science and told the truth.”
Asked if that issue came up Thursday, Mr. Inslee said they didn’t talk about it, but he said they were hearing “good science” from many in the federal government and said there was broad agreement to ramp up efforts to fight the virus.
On the response to the virus from Mr. Trump, Mr. Inslee joked, “I’m going to defer that question to the vice president.” He added that he has had “robust disagreements with the current president, but I want to focus today on the work we need to do in a partnership.”
Officials in Washington state said a 10th person died there Wednesday. All but one of the U.S. deaths linked to the coronavirus have occurred in the state, which has emerged as a hot spot in the virus fight. Washington now has at least 39 confirmed infections, according to its health department.
