Ladies, here are 5 common things Ghanaian men lie about

The topic of trust is an important factor in all matters of the heart.
Men lie to women. Women lie to men. And most people agree that some lying is even necessary – to avoid petty squabbles and to grease the wheels of a relationship.

Men lie to build themselves up or to conceal something. According to experts, men are more likely to lie to enhance themselves than women are.

Read:https://ghanaaview.com/watch-video-senior-citizen-drops-atopa-dance-moves/

But consistent lying on even minor matters can unglue a marriage. Trust me, when you are being dishonest with someone, then you are essentially denying that person the privilege of the truth. Whether it’s an effort to spare another person’s feelings or protecting yourself, lies are lies and must not be encouraged.

Women, here are some common things Ghanaian men lie about.

Their sexual performance

Most men struggle with erectile dysfunction, but many of them don’t want to admit it. This is one reason why they like to take aphrodisiac drugs just because they want to “give good sex.” This shouldn’t be the case though. If you have a problem, consult a doctor for treatment.

Their fantasies

Everyone fantasizes about someone or something. But Ghanaian men never want to layout or speak about their fantasies. Usually, they think they become vulnerable or better still, they keep them so that they don’t hurt their partners. But it is okay to fantasise about someone or something. That is a natural feeling.

Past relationships

Men usually lie about cheating in previous relationships. They do this most of the times because they didn’t want to scare off a potential new love. Unfortunately, that’s the kind of lie that can erode trust from the very beginning, and ultimately doom a relationship.

The fact that they need you

One of the most destructive lies that men tell to themselves and others is that they can go it alone.

This is the most ludicrous lie of them all because we all need somebody. We’re social creatures that crave connection above almost everything else.

Their income

Most Ghanaian men lie about their income. They either tell you the less income they receive (i.e. if they want to avoid spending more on you) or tell you they receive much more than they actually get (i.e. if they want to impress you). But if financial lies continue into a relationship, they can seriously undermine trust and cause long-term problems.

Is Boris Johnson going to shut YOUR local pub?

A coronavirus heat map which breaks down infection rates across England has revealed the 200-plus towns and cities that could be at risk of being plunged into Boris Johnson‘s new three-tier lockdown.

The PM has signed off a new ‘traffic light’ system of curbs that will see the country broken down into categories of high, medium or low risk from Monday, after days of bitter wrangling between ministers and scientists,

Hospitality businesses in ‘red’ zones are set to be shut under the tougher measures, likely to be confirmed Monday and imposed from Wednesday — but shops, offices and schools will stay open. Ministers are still mulling the fate of hairdressers and leisure facilities but Chancellor Rishi Sunak will bring forward a special furlough-style compensation scheme for workers and firms hammered by the curbs.

Merseyside and other parts of northern England are expected to be placed in the harshest bracket, with hospitals admissions and infections continuing to spike, despite local lockdowns being in place for weeks. The Government has not revealed its threshold for its three-tier system. 

But the most up-to-date Covid-19 infection rate data shows 214 towns, cities and boroughs saw at least 50 cases for every 100,000 people in the week up to October 5. For comparison, nationwide, England’s infection rate is 59 per 100,000.

The majority of areas with high cases are in the North, where the virus has taken hold after migrating from London, the UK’s former epicentre, during the first wave. Nottingham and Knowsley – where more than 600 people are testing positive per 100,000 of the population – and Liverpool (578 per 100,000), Manchester (543) and Newcastle (498) are expected to be the first places to be hit by the draconian measures.

AREAS WITH THE HIGHEST INFECTION RATES 

  1. Nottingham (689.1 cases per 100,000 people)
  2. Knowsley (601.2)
  3. Liverpool (578.7)
  4. Manchester (543.0)
  5. Newcastle upon Tyne (498.6)
  6. Burnley (428.5)
  7. Sheffield (398.2)
  8. Exeter (390.4)
  9. Leeds (389.5)
  10. Sefton (381.7)

Based on Press Association analysis of positive tests up to October 5 

AREAS WITH THE LOWEST INFECTION RATES 

  1. Isle of Wight (12.0 cases per 100,000 people)
  2. Gosport (13.0)
  3. Torridge (14.6 )
  4. Fareham (15.5)
  5. South Hams (17.2)
  6.  North Norfolk (18.1)
  7. Folkestone and Hythe (19.5)
  8. Rochford (20.6)
  9.  Herefordshire (21.3)
  10. Ipswich (22.6)

Based on Press Association analysis of positive tests up to October 5 

Burnley, which recorded 428 cases per 100,000 people in the latest data, is also likely to be among the cities at the top of Number 10’s lockdown list, alongside is Sheffield (398), Exeter (390), Leeds (389) and Sefton (381). 

Although there is a clear North-South coronavirus divide in England, there are still towns and cities in southern parts that are struggling to keep a lid on outbreaks. Brentwood (79 per 100,000), in Essex, Bournemouth (76), Bristol (65), Bath (68) and Brighton (66) all fall into the harshest tier, according to the map. Every London borough is also being monitored closely by health bosses because infection rates are above 50 per 100,000. 

Conservative MPs and local leaders in the North have been venting fury about the government’s stance, with former minister Jake Berry accusing the premier of being ‘London-centric’ and enjoying his sweeping emergency powers ‘a little bit too much’.

Politicians in Manchester, Liverpool, Newcastle and Sheffield raged at ‘diktats announced without notice’ and said ministers were treating the North like a ‘petri dish for experimentation’ while the South gets off lightly.

But Mr Johnson is coming under massive pressure from scientists to go further and impose a blanket nationwide ‘circuit breaker’ lockdown similar to that dramatically announced by Nicola Sturgeon yesterday. For 16 days from tomorrow pubs and restaurants in Scotland are being banned from serving alcohol indoors and must close by 6pm. In large areas north of the border hospitality venues are being told to shut altogether. 

It comes as Britain today recorded 17,540 more cases of coronavirus, with the number of people testing positive for the disease every day having nearly tripled in a fortnight.There were 6,634 diagnoses of the disease two weeks ago, on September 24, which is the most recent point of reference after a counting blunder at Public Health England (PHE) made last week’s data invalid. 

Another 77 coronavirus deaths were also announced today, up by 30 per cent on last week’s 59 fatalities and 92 per cent higher than the number of victims posted the Thursday before, when there were 40 deaths. Data shows the rolling seven-day average number of daily deaths is 56, up from a record-low of seven in mid-August.

Afia Schwarzenegger Throws Shades: “Rich People Don’t Fight, They Concentrate On Their Investment And Enjoy Their Wealth”

Afia Schwarzenegger is with the real papa no

The fierce feud between celebrities on social media have left many of them throwing jabs and shades every day in their posts via their handles and loud mouth media personality Afia Schwarzenegger seems to be doing exactly same after Mzbel dared her with her “Fi” response in their recent ‘beef’.

After Mzbel and Tornado took her to the gutters by exposing her sapphism acts with chop bar waitresses and also alleging that she doesn’t even cater for his biological father who is based in Kumasi, Afia has since been making slight innuendoes with photos of his father on his IG page.

Among the many posts that she flooded her post with, one post that really caught our attention is the one that seems like a response to those that wish she could continue her feud with Mzbel and Tornado. In this post she said: “My dad Mr Agyei just said and I quote ‘Rich people don’t fight ,they concentrate on their investment and enjoy their wealth”.

But before that she first she posted: “Take good care of your parents n God in heaven will bless you!!!! My daddy my photocopy.

I remember the morning we were wheeling you to the theater… it was raining heavily at korle bu n I was tearing.. you held my hand n prayed for us..you asked God to reward me for every coin I have spent. Thank you daddy .. today Facebook reminded me of this day n the Holy Spirit whispered unto my soul,your daddy is still alive and all his prayers for u has been answered. God bless you Agya Kojo Agyei… your prayers have made us come far. Once again congratulations daddy, wo tri nkwa. We are grateful to God for having you here n oh all the jokes you tell ..We are grateful to the drs n Nurses of Korle bu teaching hospital for everything you did for daddy. Happy anniversary, Happy recoversary…still surprising medicine!!!!”

“To my everything and more Fadda Dickson, thank you so very much. To everybody that prayed with us, we say thank you…To the people that kept checking on me becos i was in my lowest mood..thank you” she said in another post.

That wasn’t the last with a photo of herself and the father, she further shared this: “Allow me flood your TL with my 83 years dad whom we nearly lost to prostate cancer…And I will use the medium to advise all men to check your prostate Regularly..Just like cervical cancer you might not experience any symptoms till it gets cancerous. Meet my miracle. And oh we are always laughing cos my father is got a great sense of humor.
Yes he survived Cancer…He is a miracle..He is a great man”.

Afia trying to prove Mr. Agyei is her real dad and that she takes very good care of him, posted: “If you think say I be guy…wait…Meet the 83 years old man that wears Versace to funeral, My father Agya Kwadwo Agyei”.

10 PEOPLE TO AVIOD IF YOU MUST BE SUCCESSFUL IN LIFE

10 PEOPLE TO AVIOD IF YOU MUST BE SUCCESSFUL IN LIFE

People are meant to be ingredients to our breakthroughs in life but unfortunately some people are also the blockage to it,

in life we must understand that is not everyone that is meant to be callrd our friends there are people we are supposed to greet from afar instead we make them close friends which is very very bad,

we must know and understand who truly love us and who are pretending to be good,

continue reading as I explain and list out people that are not supposed to be called friends.

Apart from handwork that gives success cutting some people out of your life will help.

10 SETS OF PEOPLE TO AVIOD IF YOU MUST GO FAR

1) PEOPLE WHO HOLD GRUDGES :
There are bound to be hurts in friendship so you must be with people who easily forgives and forget not people who hold offences and seek vengeance.

2) PEOPLE WHO ARE VERY JUDGEMENTAL:
People who finds it hard to know the reason behind an action before concluding should be far from you cause they will always hurt and make you feel bad always.

3) PEOPLE WHO ARE SELF CENTERD:
True friendship entails sacrifice for one another, people who can’t sacrifice for you and your friendship is not suppose to be close to you they can never be with you in pains.

4) PEOPLE WHO LACKS EMOTIONAL CONTROL:
Emotion is part of everyone but it can be controlled so being around people who can’t put their emotions under control can be very risky, cause most times they voice out hurtful words.

5) PEOPLE WHO LIE TO YOU:
A friend who lies to you can’t be trusted he or she is capable of putting you into deep trouble and running away,

So keep away from people you don’t know their truth cause friendship should be built on trust not lies.

6) PEOPLE WHO GOSSIP:
Gossipers are people who never see good in anyone they are always ready to say what they see or hear privacy is not in their dictionary.

7) PEOPLE WHO DONT SUPPORT YOU :
Friends are suppose to support each other to achieve their goals , Either financially. Spiritually etc, Friends are to encourage one another not the other way round.

8) PEOPLE WHO USE YOU:
People who are always with you when things are good and dissapper during bad times are gold diggers which should be avoided.

9) PEOPLE WHO HARDLY APOLOGISE:
People who hardly admit their wrongs and say am sorry are people are people that are proud and can’t maintain friendship,

they should be avoided cause they will only cause you pain so for your happiness please stay away.

10) PEOPLE WHO MAKE YOU DEFEND YOURSELF :
Being around with people you aren’t free with or people you can’t really express yourself can be very frustrating that each time

you say or do something they start looking at you that you have to look for a quick defence, those kind of people are not worth staying with.

Coronavirus in Africa: Five reasons why Covid-19 has been less deadly than elsewhere

Many African countries have been praised for waging an effective campaign to combat the spread of coronavirus despite their reputation for having fragile state heath systems.

The continent, which has a population of more than one billion, has had about 1.5 million cases, according to data compiled by the John Hopkins University.

Africa has recorded about 37,000 deaths, compared with roughly 580,000 in the Americas, 230,000 in Europe, and 205,000 in Asia.

These figures are far lower than those in Europe, Asia or the Americas, with reported cases continuing to decline.

READ:https://ghanaaview.com/coronavirus-berlin-imposes-strict-night-time-restrictions-amid-case-spike/

“The case-fatality ratio (CFR) for Covid-19 in Africa is lower than the global CFR, suggesting the outcomes have been less severe among African populations,” noted a recent continental study by Partnership for Evidence-based Response to Covid-19 (PERC), which brings together a number of private and public organisations.

Low testing rates continue to undermine the continental response however, there is no indication that a large number of Covid-19 deaths have been missed, said Dr John Nkengasong, the head of Africa Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (Africa CDC).

So what are some of the reasons for Africa’s relatively low death rate?

1: Quick action

image captionMost places of worship in African countries have re-opened after the easing of restrictions

The first case on the continent was confirmed in Egypt on 14 February. There were fears that the new virus could quickly overwhelm largely fragile health systems on the continent.

So, right from the beginning, most African governments took drastic measures to try and slow the spread of the virus.

Public health measures – including avoiding handshakes, frequent hand-washing, social distancing and wearing of face masks – were swiftly introduced.

Some countries – like Lesotho – acted even before a single case was reported.

It declared an emergency and closed schools on 18 March, and went into a three-week lockdown about 10 days later in unison with many other southern Africa states.

But only days after the lockdown was lifted – in early May – did Lesotho find its first confirmed cases. In a population of more than 2 million, it has so far recorded about 1,700 cases and 40 deaths.

2: Public support

In a survey conducted in 18 countries in August by PERC, public support for safety measures was high – 85% of respondents said they wore masks in the previous week.

“With strict public health and social measures implemented, African Union member states were able to contain the virus between March and May,” the report said.

It added that “minor loosening [of restrictions] in June and July coincided with an increase in the reported cases across the continent”.

Since then, there has been a notable drop in the number of confirmed cases and deaths in about half of the continent, possibly linked to the end of the southern hemisphere winter (see below).

Adherence to Covid-19 measures. Survey in 18 African countries. Self-reported adherence to coronavirus measures in Africa. The report draws on findings from a telephone poll of more than 24,000 adults in 18 AU Member States (conducted between 4 and 17 August, 2020) as well as social, economic, epidemiological, population movement, media and security data. It draws on findings from a telephone poll of more than 24,000 adults between 4 -17 August 2020.

The implementation of the restrictions came at a huge cost. Livelihoods were lost on a large scale. South Africa – which had one of the most stringent lockdowns in the world – lost 2.2 million jobs during the first half of the year.

More and more countries have been forced to re-open their economies even though the number of cases is much higher than when they ordered the shutdowns.

According to the PERC report, public opinion about re-opening the economy was mixed – six in 10 respondents said economies needed to re-open, and believed that the risk of getting Covid-19 was minimal if social distancing rules were followed.

However, seven in 10 said that thinking about resuming normal activities made them feel anxious.

“The data suggests that people across the AU see Covid-19 as a serious threat, but for many, the economic and social burdens outweigh their personal risk perception of catching the virus,” concluded the report.

3: Young population – and few old-age homes

The age of the population in most African countries is also likely to have played a role in containing the spread of Covid-19.

Globally, most of those who have died have been aged over 80, whileAfrica is home to the world’s youngest population with a median age of 19 years, according to UN data.

“The pandemic has largely been in younger age groups… about 91% of Covid-19 infection in sub-Saharan Africa are among people below 60 years and over 80% are asymptomatic,” said the World Health Organization (WHO).

“We have [in Africa] about 3% of the population aged over 65 years,” sad Dr Matshidiso Moeti, the WHO Africa head.

In comparison, Europe, North America and wealthier Asian countries have the oldest inhabitants.

“One of the big drivers in Western countries is that the elderly people were living in specialized homes and these became places where the transmission was very intense,” Dr Moeti added.

These homes are rare in most African countries, where older people are more likely to be living in rural areas.

A volunteer from the Rays of Light NGO (L) delivers food and cleaning products to an elderly woman (R) living alone in Alexandra, Johannesburg, on April 16, 2020.

image captionOld-age homes are not common in most African countries

It is the norm in many African countries for people to return to their rural homes when they retire from employment in urban areas.

The population density in rural areas is lower and therefore maintaining social distance much easier.

Furthermore, an underdeveloped transport system within and between countries appears to have been a blessing in disguise. It means that Africans do not travel as much as people do in more developed economies, minimising contact.

4: Favourable climate

A study conducted by researchers in the University of Maryland in the US found a correlation between temperature, humidity and latitude, and the spread of Covid-19.

image captionCovid-19 does not spread as well in sparsely populated areas

“We looked at the early spread [of the virus] in 50 cities around the world. The virus had an easier time spreading in lower temperatures and humidity,” said Mohammad Sajadi, the lead researcher.

“Not that it doesn’t spread in other conditions – it just spreads better when temperature and humidity drop.”

The spread of the virus accelerated in South Africa as the southern hemisphere went into winter.

But as it became warmer, the number of cases dropped significantly, impacting the continental outlook, as South Africa accounts for almost half the total number of cases and deaths on the continent.

5: Good community health systems

The Covid-19 pandemic came at a time when the Democratic Republic of Congo was dealing with its biggest outbreak of Ebola yet. Neighbouring states were on high alert, and the health screening of travellers for Ebola was extended to include Covid-19.

Several West African states – which battled the world’s worst ever outbreak of Ebola from 2013-16 – had also mastered the public health measures that have been used to prevent Covid-19, including isolating the infected, tracing their contacts and then getting them quarantined while they get tested.

image captionSome of those helping with Nigeria’s polio vaccination programme switched to targeting Covid-19

Furthermore, in Africa’s most populous state, Nigeria, teams that had been going into villages to vaccinate children against polio were quickly re-purposed to educate communities about the new pandemic.

This is a point that Dr Rosemary Onyibe, who had been working on the polio eradication programme, made in April:

“Once I heard the news, I instantly thought: duty is calling. My expertise is needed to serve my community.

“We immediately mobilized the existing polio personnel, tracking contacts and conducting follow-up visits.”

So, while hospital infrastructure in much of Africa is less developed than in other parts of the world, the continent’s strength lay in its tried and tested community health systems.

But all this doesn’t mean that people in Africa can afford to relax.

“The slower spread of infection in the region means we expect the pandemic to continue to smoulder for some time, with occasional flare-ups,” Dr Moeti said.

Coronavirus: Berlin imposes strict night-time restrictions amid case spike

Berlin has announced new restrictions to help combat a growing number of infections. The measures will hit bars, restaurants and local stores as well as restricting gatherings.    

Berlin announces new measures as coronavirus cases surge

The German capital introduced a new curfew for businesses and other tough restrictions on Tuesday, in a bid to curb an explosion of daily infections.

Restaurants, bars, local shops and other businesses will have to shut during between 23:00 p.m. local time until 06:00 a.m., the Berlin Senate announced. The city’s governing body said the restrictions will come into effect on October 10 and will run until October 31.

During the curfew-period, private gatherings of people will be limited to five for those living in separate households. Meeting up in parks during night time hours will also be banned.

Outside of curfew hours, gatherings of up to 10 people will be permitted indoors, down from 25 people.

Exceptions are planned for gas stations, but these will not be able to sell alcohol during curfew hours.

Four districts are ‘risk zones’

The restrictions were decided after the senate met twice on Tuesday to discuss its response to curb spiking infection rates. 

It is the first time since the introduction of its traffic light alert system that two of its warning lights are on red: both the R-value, the virus’ basic reproduction value, and the incidence value that shows the number of cases per 100,000 residents within the space of a week.

Four districts of Berlin, with a combined population of 1 million, are now classified as high-risk zones, meaning they exceeded 50 cases per 100,000 inhabitants for seven days in a row.

This is the threshold Germany uses to define areas abroad as high risk; German residents returning from such areas are required to self-isolate for 14 days, or to obtain a test and demonstrate they are healthy after a shorter period of self-isolation.

Fears that Berlin is ‘losing control’

In response to the situation in Berlin, the northern states of Schleswig-Holstein and Lower Saxony introduced compulsory quarantines or tests for domestic travelers from the capital.

Rhineland-Palatinate has also pushed ahead with this course of action, albeit with exceptions.

Bavarian Premier Markus Söder has expressed concern about the growing virus transmission rate in Berlin: “I fear that [Berlin] is on the edge of losing control” he said during a state cabinet meeting.

“We definitely do not want to have a situation like in Madrid, we do not want a situation like in Paris, where there has to be a complete lockdown, where public life has to be reset to zero,” Söder added.

Trump is just one of 10 people receiving the drug, which is still in the experimental phase, and is intended to boost antibodies to fight the infection. He’s receiving a series of medications, including a steroid that critics and some doctors have said could be making the president manic.  

Trump kicked off the nearly-five minute video with an odd introduction that did not state his name.

‘Hi, perhaps you recognize me, it’s your favorite president,’ he said. It appeared from the makeup he was wearing a liberal application of makeup on his face.

‘And I’m standing in front of the Oval Office at the White House, which is always an exciting place to be,’ he continued.

‘I got back a day ago from Walter Reed Medical Center, I spent four days there, and didn’t have to, I could have stayed at the White House but the doctors said because you’re president let’s do it, I said fine,’ Trump said.

The video was posted Wednesday. Trump returned to the White House from Walter Reed Medical Center on Monday. 

White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows told reporters at the White House the video ‘taken on the South Lawn earlier this afternoon’ – indicating the president was confused about what day it was when he spoke before the camera.

Trump made his first foray to the Oval Office since he came home from the hospital on Wednesday afternoon. 

His Democratic rival Joe Biden said the way Trump was dealing with COVID was a ‘tragedy.’

‘I’m going to think before I speak,’ he told reporters in Wilmington where he was asked about Trump calling his diagnosis a blessing from god. ‘I think it’s a tragedy the president deals with COVID like it is something not to be worried about when already 210,000 people have died.’Trump tweeted out the message. There were no reporters present and the White House physician did not brief the media Tuesday or Wednesday

Trump, meanwhile, praised the medical staff who treated him. 

‘You tell me what to do and I’m going to do it. These are great professionals,’ Trump said. He also went on a tangent where he praised police and firefighters.

He then praised the experimental antibody cocktail from Regeneron he took, calling it a ‘cure.’ 

‘But I spent four days there and I went in, I wasn’t feeling so hot and within a very short period of time they gave me Regeneron, it’s called Regeneron, and other things too, but I think this was the key. But they gave me Regeneron and it was like unbelievable, I felt good immediately, I felt as good three days ago as I do now. So I just want to say we have Regeneron, we have a very similar drug from Eli Lilly. And they’re coming out and we’re trying to get them on an emergency basis,’ Trump said.

The White House physician also said Trump was put on oxygen, a steroid, and Remdesivir. 

‘If you’re in the hospital and you’re feeling really bad I think we’re going to work it so you’re going to get them and you’re going to get them free,’ he promised. He said there were ‘hundreds of thousands of doses almost ready,’ speaking after the coronavirus death toll in the U.S. has already topped 210,000.

Then Trump turned to an attack on China, who he said would pay a ‘big price’ for the outbreak. 

‘And I’m going to make it free. You’re not going to pay for it. It wasn’t your fault that this happened, it was China’s fault. And China’s going to pay a big price what they’ve done to this country, China’s going to pay a big price what they’ve done to the world. This is China’s fault and just remember that.’

‘Our military is doing the distribution – it’s called logistics – and they deliver hundreds of thousands of troops in a matter of days, this is easy stuff for them.’

‘And the drug companies have just made a lot of it,’ he said.

The longtime promoter who has put his named on skyscrapers and marketed products from a hit TV show less successful steaks and Trump-branded water told the public: ‘You’re going to get better, you’re going to get better fast, just like I did. So again a blessing in disguise, good luck.’

Trump talked up the therapeutic medication and those in development – then appeared to walk back his optimistic pronouncements for the timing of a vaccine.

‘But to me it wasn’t therapeutic, it just made me better, I call that a cure. But on the vaccines we have many companies that are in final stages on the vaccine,’ Trump said.

‘I think we should have it before the election, but frankly the politics gets involved, and that’s OK they want to play their games, it’s going to be right after the election.’

‘Some people don’t know how to define therapeutic.’

‘It’s a cure. For me, I walked in, I didn’t feel good, a short 24 hours later I was feeling great, I wanted to get out of the hospital. And that’s what I want for everybody. I want everybody to be given the same treatment as your president because I feel great, I feel like perfect. So I think this was a blessing from God that I caught it.’

‘This was a blessing in disguise. I caught it, I heard about this drug, I said let me take it, it was my suggestion. Let me take it and it was incredible the way it worked. Incredible. I think if I didn’t catch it we’d be looking at that like a number of other drugs. But it really did a fantastic job. I want to get for you what I got.’

Presumably he was filmed by a White House videographer on the grounds of the White House. The video came soon after it was revealed that Trump returned to the Oval Office on Wednesday afternoon despite being contagious from the coronavirus, the state of his health uncertain and several aides fighting the disease.

Meadows was with Trump in the presidential office suite in the West Wing of the White House – the area where all the president’s staff work – as was Deputy Chief of Staff Dan Scavino, the White House said. Both men were wearing protective gear and a table with PPE is set up outside the West Wing. 

‘I’m on PPE anytime any time I get close,’ Meadows told reporters, adding Scavino was wearing it too.

A nurse was on duty outside the Oval Office, The New York Times reported, citing a source. Additionally, a cleaning crew was seen entering the West Wing shortly after the report of Trump’s arrival back in his office.

The White House announced six days ago Trump tested positive for the disease. He left the hospital two days ago. 

While the president has been eager to get back to work, his fury of tweets and his decision to end talks on a coronavirus relief package – announced in a tweet that sent the stock market tumbling Tuesday – have led to questions about his mental state. 

The president taking the steroid dexamethasone as part of his treatment for coronavirus. The steroid is known to have side effects that can affect the brain and thought processes.  Doctors also warned that dexamethasone comes with risks of serious side effects, including mood swings, aggression and confusion.

He has been trying to project a picture of health after his diagnosis and as he trails Biden in the polls with Election Day less than six weeks away. 

Biden wouldn’t comment on Trump’s mental health.  

‘I have no idea and I’d never comment on the president’s mental health,’ he said when asked whether the medications Trump was on was affecting the president’s mental state. ‘I’m not qualified to comment on that.’

Meadows told Fox News the president was in the Oval Office most of Wednesday afternoon.

‘He’s telling me privately, he feels better than he did 20 years ago,’ Meadows said.

Trump went into the Oval via the colonnade, which is the outdoor walkway that leads from the residence, around the Rose Garden and to the outer doors of the West Wing. That kept him away from West Wing hallways where staff work in cramped, crowded offices.

He was briefed on the stimulus talks and Hurricane Delta, the White House announced. Trump tweeted he spoke with Texas Governor Greg Abbott and Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards about the hurricane headed to their coast and urged people to listen to FEMA.

‘Was just briefed on Hurricane Delta, and spoke with @GovAbbott of Texas and @LouisianaGov John Bel Edwards. Please heed the directions of your State and Local Officials. We are working with them very closely — please be prepared, be careful, and be safe!,’ he wrote.

A Marine guard appeared in front of the West Wing Wednesday afternoon, giving a clue as to what was going on in the building behind him. A Marine is present when the president is in the Oval Office.

He called getting the disease a ‘blessing from God.’ 

‘I think this was a blessing from god that I caught it. This was a blessing in disguise,’ Trump said.
