“I think it’s another day. I had a two-week regime of hydroxychloroquine,” Trump told reporters on Thursday. “I’ve taken it, I think, just about two weeks. I think it’s another day. And I’m still here. I’m still here. And I tested very positively in another sense, this morning. I tested positively toward negative, right? So. I tested perfectly this morning. Meaning, I tested negative.”
“Even his negatives are positive! Isn’t that something?” Jimmy Kimmel joked on Thursday night.
Earlier this week, Trump said he had begun taking hydroxychloroquine in order to ward off COVID-19, despite the fact that studies have shown the drug is not only ineffective against coronavirus, but could also lead to serious complications, including death. In the wake of Trump’s shocking claim, Kimmel said he thought Trump might be “trying to kill himself” by using the treatment. But on Thursday, he allowed for another option.
“It’s pretty clear what’s going on, here, right?” Kimmel said. “He blurted out that he was taking it just to trigger the news media—successfully, by the way—even though there’s no way in hell he’s taking this stuff.”
It's now part of daily life for many of us - struggling to work out what someone in a supermarket or at work is saying when they're wearing a face mask.
But for people who are deaf or have hearing loss, masks can prevent them understanding anything at all.
"You might as well be speaking in French," says Fizz Izagaren, a paediatric doctor in the UK who has been profoundly deaf since the age of two.
"I can hear one or two words but it's random, it makes no sense… When someone is wearing a face mask I've lost the ability to lip read and I've lost facial expressions - I have lost the key things that make a sentence."
It is a problem she shares with the some 466 million people around the world who, according to the World Health Organization, have disabling hearing loss.
Standard face masks, which have become widespread as countries try to stop the spread of coronavirus, muffle words and obscure the mouth.
But now charities and manufacturers alike are coming up with a solution.
