Utterly unbothered by the COVID-19 pandemic that still continues to break the country, and the world, US President Donald Trump had something to announce.
On Thursday, he publicly announced that he will resume his election campaign in four states from next week.
Interestingly enough, he has been asking his supporters to sign a waiver.
What waiver, you ask? That, if they catch COVID-19 during one of his rallies, then they can’t sue him. *shrugs*
The waiver has been apparently put up on Trump’s campaign website.
It said that by clicking register below, people are acknowledging an inherent risk persists.
Risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present.
It stated that by attending the rally, people voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19 and agree not to hold the Trump campaign.
And, of course, or any of its affiliates, contractors or employees responsible.
It should be noted that the page makes no suggestion for supporters.
As in, how to control the spread of the virus-like by maintaining social distance, wearing masks, etc.
The Republican candidate has confirmed that he would resume his campaign in four states – Oklahoma, Florida, Arizona and North Carolina.
Yes, despite the ongoing coronavirus crisis in the country. I know.
Except for the city of Oklahoma, the number of coronavirus infections has started to increase again.
Especially in the other three states where Trump is scheduled to hold his rallies.
As per the Johns Hopkins University, more than 1,13,000 people have lost their lives to the deadly disease.
Over two million people continue to deal with COVID-19 in the United States and it gets pathetic every other day.
