President Donald Trump denied on Wednesday that he had said just the day before that the US would soon be able to process 5 million coronavirus tests per day. While speaking to the press in the Oval Office, Trump was asked about remarks he had made a day earlier suggesting that the US would hit 5 million daily tests “very soon.”
Trump called the question a “media trap.”
Watch the video…
“Do I think we will [have 5 million tests per day]?,” the president said. “I think we will but I never said it.”
When a reporter pointed out that he had indeed made the remark, Trump objected again.
“I didn’t say it! I didn’t say it!” the president insisted before launching into a rant about how well his administration handled the pandemic.
Video of the press briefing from just the day before clearly shows the president did indeed proclaim that the US would hit 5 million daily tests “very soon.”
From the Mayo Clinic…
Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive disorder that causes brain cells to waste away (degenerate) and die. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia — a continuous decline in thinking, behavioral and social skills that disrupts a person’s ability to function independently.
The early signs of the disease may be forgetting recent events or conversations. As the disease progresses, a person with Alzheimer’s disease will develop severe memory impairment and lose the ability to carry out everyday tasks.
There is no treatment that cures Alzheimer’s disease or alters the disease process in the brain. In advanced stages of the disease, complications from severe loss of brain function — such as dehydration, malnutrition or infection — result in death.
Memory loss is the key symptom of Alzheimer’s disease. An early sign of the disease is usually difficulty remembering recent events or conversations. As the disease progresses, memory impairments worsen and other symptoms develop.
At first, a person with Alzheimer’s disease may be aware of having difficulty with remembering things and organizing thoughts. A family member or friend may be more likely to notice how the symptoms worsen.
Everyone has occasional memory lapses. It’s normal to lose track of where you put your keys or forget the name of an acquaintance. But the memory loss associated with Alzheimer’s disease persists and worsens, affecting the ability to function at work or at home.
People with Alzheimer’s may:
- Repeat statements and questions over and over
- Forget conversations, appointments or events, and not remember them later
- Routinely misplace possessions, often putting them in illogical locations
- Get lost in familiar places
- Eventually forget the names of family members and everyday objects
- Have trouble finding the right words to identify objects, express thoughts or take part in conversations
