On COVID-19 News, it has come to the notice of the public that two particular presidents do not use face masks.
Have you ever seen president Buhari on facemask? Or President Donald Trump?
Haven’t you wondered why Buhari doesn’t use facemask? Or why Donald Trump doesn’t either?
Well, it is quite appalling that the leaders who impose lockdown rules and instruct that erring members of the state be punished, are themselves not using the masks.
Only few days ago, Lauretta Onochie, the aide to President Muhammadu Buhari on Social Media has revealed the reason behind President Buhari’s non use of the facemasks.
President Buhari’s Reason For not Wearing Face Masks
Mrs Onochie stated that according to expert medical protocols, whenever a subject is within a safe environment, then there is no need for the use of a face mask. Hence, Buhari’s reason for never wearing a face mask.
Onochie further explained that the rule only mandated visiting persons to use face masks so that they do not leave droplets within the visited area.
In her tweet, she said:
Donald Trump’s Reason For Not Wearing Face Masks
Now to the American president; President Donald Trump. The president of America has also been accused of ignoring CDC guidelines by not wearing face masks despite the escalating COVID-19 crisis in the United States.
In his defence, his daughter, Ivanka Trump has disclosed the reason her father does not wear face masks, explaining that he doesn’t need it.
She stated that the president and all the staffers who work directly with him gets tested for the COVID-19 virus on a daily basis, so since everyone is sure of their status, the US President doesn’t need a mask.
“I always wears a mask around him and so do other people who come in close contact with the US President.”
Ivanka Trump said that everyone at the White House has been instructed to wear a mask whenever they are in close proximity to the president, including herself. She explained that the president’s office is following all precautionary measures after two officials close to the Trumps tested positive for the COVID-19 infection.
