U.S. President Donald Trump told the American people Monday not to worry about the novel coronavirus as he left a top military hospital where he spent days being treated for COVID-19. That message was denounced by health experts and politicians who bemoaned Trump’s dismissal of a virus that has now killed over 210,000 Americans — many of whom were unable to access the same high quality care the president received at Walter Reed Medical Center. “Don’t be afraid of Covid. Don’t let it dominate your life,” Trump tweeted as he announced he was leaving Walter Reed, where he was taken to Friday after revealing he had tested positive for the coronavirus. “I feel better than I did 20 years ago!” he added.
