U.S. Vice President visits Covid-19 patients Without wearing mask

Us Vice President Mike Pence visited a hospital today to inspect the hospital. US Vice President Mice was exceptionally “unusual”: he did not wear a mask. And he was visiting a patient who had been diagnosed with new coronavirus pneumonia.

The patient in blue in the picture above is an employee of the hospital, unfortunately, infected with the new coronavirus at work at the end of March. As you can see from the picture, everyone at the scene was wearing a mask, except for Pence.

The author found from the hospital’s official website that the hospital has repeatedly anounced that people who go to the hospital during the epidemic must wear masks. According to CNBC News, when the head of the hospital learned of Pence’s visit, he also specifically emphasized this requirement to his team.

But Pence didn’t listen to this and he said.

“As Vice President, I have regular Coronavirus testing, and my entourage has tests. Because I have no infections, this is a great opportunity for me to be able to talk to these researchers, these amazing medical staff , Look into their eyes and say thank you! “

However, many people do not buy this sophistry. A Member of the Democratic Party of the United States issued a criticism: “This does not mean you are brave, it can only show that you are not obeying the rules, and also bring a bad example of not listening to experts.”

A tweet from an American netizen claimed that because Pence did not wear a mask, which caused controversy, the hospital even deleted tweets that had previously claimed that “Pence was required to wear a mask.” Netizens believe that this is the hospital’s cover for Pence.

The media pointed out that this is not the first time that Pence has not worn a mask and caused controversy. In early April, at a meeting, Pence was also photographed insisting not to wear a mask. The explanation of his entourage is exactly the same as Pence’s feedback this time: Pence will be tested regularly, so there is no need to wear a mask.

It’s no wonder that some netizens accused: “He can do the test at any time, and we can’t, not wearing a mask is a symbol of his power.” Others teased: “Perhaps Trump did not allow him to wear a mask?”
