He's capable of parroting some correct information.Here are two quotes from Donald Trump's Press Conference today :
"We're asking everybody, that when you are not able to socially distance, wear a mask, get a mask, whether you like the mask or not, they have an impact. They'll have an effect and we need everything we can get. Data shows children have the lowest fatality risk, 99.96 of all virus fatalities are in adults, think of that. So that's much much much less than one percent for children young people, by understanding these risk profiles and learning how to treat the disease we've been able to greatly reduce mortality in the United States."
"The vaccines are coming and they're coming a lot sooner than anyone thought possible, by years. If you look at the old system and look at the new system, I think by years. The China virus is a vicious and dangerous illness but we've learned a great deal about it and ultimately our goal is not merely to manage the pandemic but to end it. We want to get rid of it as soon as we can that is why getting a vaccine remains a top priority too. Vaccine candidates are entering the final stage of clinical trials this month, this was achieved in record time. It used to be years before you were in a position like we are right now for other vaccines. We'll lead to final trials and the following weeks and we're mass producing all of the top candidates so that the first approved vaccine will be available immediately. And logistically we have the military ready to go. We have great people, logistic military people, a wonderful general who's waiting for the vaccine so they can distribute it in record time. That's what's going to happen. So our military is all set to go. We will deliver a vaccine, therapeutics, whatever it is is necessary and defeat the virus once and for all."
I don't understand the military involvement with vaccine distribution unless it's related to getting them to locations where health professionals are.
