The United States President Donald Trump has finally worn a mask as public pressure mounts on the government to effectively combat Covid-19. The US has broken international records with new cases of the virus.
The White House has released guidance on masks, advising people to wear face protection to reduce to chance of transmission.
YEN.com.gh understands that until now, Trump had refused to wear a mask, even after White House staff tested positive for the virus.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) advised countries to step up the fights against Covid-19. Hours after the WHO made the announcement, Donald Trump wore a mask while he visited wounded military veterans at the Walter Reed military hospital according to ENCA.

Trump has lost ground to Joe Biden in the polls and Americans are not satisfied with Trump's handling of the crisis.
In his usual bluster, Trump dismissed the criticism and praised his response to the pandemic. On Saturday night, the US posted a new record on infections, with 66 528 new infections and 800 new deaths to a new total of 135 000.
