PRESIDENT TRUMP AND THE FIRST LADY TEST POSITIVE FOR COVID-19!

The US presidential election has been plunged into disarray after Donald Trump and his wife, Melania, tested positive for coronavirus following weeks in which the US president sought to suggest that the worst of the pandemic was over.

Trump announced his positive test in a tweet at 1am, prompting US television networks to go to live coverage of the 74-year old president’s health, and his election campaign cancelled a planned event in the key battleground state of Florida.

Trump and his wife were tested after one of his closest aides, the White House counsellor Hope Hicks, began showing symptoms this week as she travelled to campaign events around the country with Trump’s entourage, including several other family members.

“Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19,” Trump tweeted, adding that they would begin to quarantine immediately.

Melania Trump tweeted that she and the president “are feeling good and I have postponed all upcoming engagements”.

Despite the reassuring messages, many have noted that Trump’s age and weight put him in a high-risk category for more severe forms of the disease.

Although Hicks was tested on Thursday after showing symptoms requiring isolation, Trump still travelled to New Jersey to meet supporters at his Bedminster golf club, and delivered remarks at a fundraiser despite the high risk that his aide may have been infected.

HARRIS COUNTY DEPUTY DIES FROM COVID 19!

The Harris County Sheriff’s Office is mourning the death of Deputy Juan Menchaca, who died on Saturday after a lengthy battle with COVID-19.

Deputy Menchaca, 70, had been hospitalized for several weeks after contracting COVID-19. He was a 14-year veteran of the Harris County Sheriff’s Office and was most recently assigned to the courts division. He began his law enforcement career with the Nacogdoches Police Department, and he previously served 18 years as a Texas parole officer.

“Deputy Menchaca was a beloved member of our Harris County Sheriff’s Office family, and he will be terribly missed by all of us who had the honor of knowing him,” said Sheriff Ed Gonzalez. “I ask the entire community to lift up Deputy Menchaca, his wife, Melissa, and their entire family in their prayers. I also ask that we all honor him by continuing to do our part to stop the spread of this terrible virus.”

Deputy Menchaca and his wife had seven children.

He is the second Sheriff’s Office employee to die after contracting COVID-19. Sgt. Raymond Scholwinski died of the virus on May 6.

The number of Sheriff’s Office employees who have tested positive for coronavirus during the pandemic stands at 332. Of those, 15 are currently hospitalized and 254 have recovered.

Funeral arrangements for Deputy Menchaca are pending.

A VERY PROUD MOMENT FOR ISIAH FACTOR!

EXCERPT FROM ARTICLE ON TAMINA COVID 19 TESTING:
Getting the site in Tamina took a few steps. First, Isiah Carey with Fox 26 News, was reporting in the area and discovered that there hadn’t been accessible testing done in the area. He reached out to the offices of Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, who is not the congressional representative for Tamina, who then coordinated with the Texas Division of Emergency Management to get the testing sites set up. Congressman Kevin Brady’s office also helped bring attention to the need for testing in the area to the Texas Department of Emergency Management and local officials.

DON’T FORGET ABOUT TAMINA!

The community of Tamina was established by freed slaves nearly 150 years ago.

And in 2020 they still don’t have a modern sewer system, fire hydrants, or even one location to determine if the residents of the predominantly Black community have the Coronavirus.

This is Our America in the era of Covid 19!
