Former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain announced Thursday that he has been hospitalized due to symptoms of COVID-19. But in an unusually on-the-nose development, the announcement came only hours after he denounced measures to stem the spread of the illness on Twitter in a show of political support for Donald Trump.Early Thursday afternoon, Cain’s representatives said in a statement, posted on Cain’s Twitter account, that he was informed June 29 that he tested positive for the coronavirus that causes COVID-19, and that by Wednesday his symptoms were severe enough that he “required hospitalization.” According to the statement, Cain was taken to an Atlanta-area facility Wednesday night, and while his symptoms are “serious,” he “did not require a respirator.”Left out of Cain’s statement is a notable event that took place between his diagnosis on Monday and his hospitalization Wednesday night. On Wednesday afternoon, Cain tweeted a link to a Western Journal article about South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, who bragged that social distancing will not be required at a July 4th Trump rally at Mt. Rushmore. In his tweet, Cain added: “Masks will not be mandatory for the event, which will be attended by President Trump. PEOPLE ARE FED UP!”Also Read: Trump Says He Would Wear a Mask Around a Large Group of People -- Though He Hasn't (Video)Cain’s reps said in the statement that “there is no way of knowing” where Cain was infected with the coronavirus. While that may indeed be true, it’s possible to piece together a potential timeline. COVID-19 has an incubation period of anywhere between 2 and 14 days. And nine days before Cain was diagnosed, he attended Trump’s under-attended political rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma.That event — notable for requiring attendees to sign a waiver promising they won’t sue if they contract coronavirus — has been associated with multiple coronavirus infections among people surrounding Trump. Several advance staffers tested positive on the day of the event, with more testing positive after, including two secret service agents. And dozens of agents present at the rally were subsequently ordered to self-quarantine due to possible exposure.Cain, who survived a stage IV cancer diagnosis in 2006, tweeted a photo from inside the venue, where he didn’t wear a mask or practice social distancing. Here’s what that looked like:Here’s just a few of the BlackVoicesForTrump at tonight’s rally!

So for anyone “FED UP” with wearing a mask or simply not wearing one to begin with, cases are still rising, and health officials are urging everyone to wear masks. You may not just save someone else’s life; you could save your own.See Cain’s tweet denouncing masks, and the announcement less than a day later that he’d been hospitalized, below:Masks will not be mandatory for the event, which will be attended by President Trump.

A novel coronavirus pandemic has now killed more than 520,000 people worldwide. More than 10.8 million people across the globe have been diagnosed with COVID-19, the disease caused by the new respiratory virus, according to data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University. The actual numbers are believed to be much higher due to testing shortages, many unreported cases and suspicions that some governments are hiding the scope of their nations' outbreaks.
Japan had no lockdown, it has an elderly population - so why haven't more people died from Covid-19?
Portland Police declared a riot on July 2 after a number of flash-points between police and protesters were reported around the Multnomah County Justice Center and an adjacent courthouse.Video here shows several officers retreating back inside the central precinct police building as they are confronted and shouted at by protesters.Police said a riot was declared shortly before midnight after “large rocks, full cans, and bottles” were thrown at officers.Police said fireworks were also launched towards officers, and that a fire broke out inside the courthouse after its doors were broken.“Because of the violent nature of the demonstrators while officers cleared the area, crowd control munitions were used and several arrests were made,” police said.
