Covid-19: a “gift from heaven” for Donald Trump

Tested positive at covid-19 on October 1st, the American president was hospitalized for a few days to return to his office at the White House on October 7th.
After this sequence which suspended the country, in the middle of the presidential campaign, Donald Trump made some astounding statements via his twitter account: “a blessing”, a “gift from heaven”, don’t be afraid of Covid”… while the United States deplores more than 200,000 victims of the virus.
The one who has minimized the pandemic during the last months now boasts to have been cured thanks to an experimental treatment (synthetic antibodies developed by the American company Regeneron) that he hopes to make available for free as soon as possible. Will the coronavirus be, against all odds, a “blessing”… for his re-election?
