Facebook and Twitter have deleted a message from the president of the United States, Donald Trump, where he claimed that the coronavirus is “far less lethal” than the flu “for most populations.” In the post, already deleted, he also wondered if the US should be confined for this latest disease.

“The flu season is coming. Every year many people die from the flu, sometimes more than 100,000 and despite the vaccine. Are we going to close our country?”, Said the US president, in a message published in his personal account of Twitter Y Facebook hours after returning to the White House after being admitted to a military hospital for Covid-19.

According Twitter, Trump’s statements “violate the rules” of this social network because “they spread potentially dangerous misleading information about Covid.” Facebook has also decided to delete the publication of the American president.

In his comment, Trump pointed out that the United States is not going to be confined by the flu season and assured that we must learn to live with the coronavirus as it has been done with the flu. “We have learned to live with it, just as we are learning to live with Covid, which in most populations is much less lethal,” he said.

Hospital discharge

Trump returned to the presidential residence on Monday and his first gesture to his followers was to greet them taking off the mask, despite the fact that the president can still infect other people around him because he has not yet overcome the disease.

His first message to Americans after returning from the hospital was to urge them not to be afraid of the coronavirus. “Do not let him dominate you. Do not be afraid. They are going to beat him. We have the best medical equipment. We have the best drugs, all recently developed,” he argued this Monday.

The coronavirus pandemic has killed more than 200,000 people in the United States and leaves more than seven million infections to date.

Throughout the pandemic, Trump has repeatedly underestimated the risk posed by the coronavirus and in the first debate against the Democratic Party presidential candidate, the former vice president Joe Biden, blamed him for always wearing the mask, arguing that he only wears it when he considers it necessary


Likewise, Trump has announced his intention to participate in the electoral debate against the Democratic candidate for the White House, Joe Biden, on the 15th in Miami, still convalescing from Covid.

“I’m looking forward to (participating in) the debate on Thursday night, October 15 in Miami. It will be great!”, Tweeted the president, about whom his personal physician, Sean Conley, said Monday that he was not out of danger yet. .

“FEELING PHENOMENAL!” Trump said in a second message on the same social network.
