I was astounded tonight to find out the US taxpayer contributes $500m a year to the @WHO with China paying only $40m 🤷🏻♂️ Please rectify this @realDonaldTrump #PressConference

The daily #PressConference is a reminder, we are not all in this together. Political hacks treating #coronavirus like Westminster gossip. Trump is right - they are some of the most dishonest people.

Gogglebox voiceover this a week when 5000 Britains died, we watched some great #PressConference

This is the type of leadership we should have! Friends recently returned from New Zealand via Singapore, landed at Heathrow no checks. One friend arrived back from Los Angeles, no checks at Heathrow! #JacindaArden #PressConference
The more I listen to @RishiSunak the more I like him. He’s seems a pretty straight up guy #PressConference
@Peston can you please ask at #PressConference why the numbers differ from different sources, NHS England is higher than Government Dept. Health. ONS too.
The death toll will be in jobs and economies ()
@psychesq @tracybeanz if #DrBirx is physically unable to maintain her physical composure for #pressconference - she def needs to get some sleep/maybe take 1 day off otherwise she will be less helpful in the end
@NormanBrennan Step 1: ask who is in charge Step 2: receive answer Step 3: go to step 1
Christ our reporters must be the worst in the world. Pointless, facile questions from everyone, as usual. #PressConference
Not so much a #PressConference as the Press and the Government conferring; the old establishment pact. Corbyn told you Capitalism was a racket but you listened to three-word politics. PPE for the NHS and care workers plus testing are the relevant briefing questions at this time.

The journalists at the #PressConference appear to be as thick as a plank because they were educated in anything other than maths, science or logic. The current situation when explained clearly and concisely is beyond them.
Pressconference Mark Austen talks about Boris, Whitty & Hancock getting the He asks “ How was it allowed to happen “ ( that they caught it) What a ridiculous question. Is he asking NHS staff the same.
It’s a virus.
It doesn’t discriminate.
We are all at risk.

Why are journalists at #coronavirus #PressConference obsessed with trying to find division in the Cabinet? 🤯

Trump’s anger over not knowing the people in his administration only bested by his anger over someone in his administration sharing honest assessments #PressConference

@Peston a suggestion for tomorrow’s #PressConference #COVID19 succinct
/səkˈsɪŋ(k)t/ Learn to pronounce
(especially of something written or spoken) briefly and clearly expressed.
use short, succinct sentences

I know the numbers are still not fully clear but businesses & workers of the UK need to know what the Government thinks is going to happen
They need to plan too as businesses will fold if there are no timescales & workers will be laid off & jobless when it ends #PressConference
@Ian313f @coton_luver I disagree. He bathes in the publicity and needs to pad his ego just like his rallies. These #PressConference have morphed into a mini rally that he lives on! He has to be front and center or he will shrivel and die. #TrumpLiedPeopleDied

To consider re. exit strategy for UK’s lockdown:
1. Covid-19 mortality rate
2. NHS capacity, ability to cope
3. Impacts of delays to other (non-Covid19) healthcare during outbreak
4. Longterm health effects of socioeconomic impact V. glad @CMO_England is back.

Can we have the daily briefing without the shit show after, oh sorry did I say that out loud #PressConference
Phil McGrath ()
Can we have a whip round to buy the “journalists“ at the daily #PressConference some bloody hearing aids? They clearly can’t hear the experts’ opening statements and definitely don’t hear the questions the others have already asked. Britain deserves better than this media rabble
#PressConference and people complain about footballers being paid too much. Look into how much people like Kuenssberg and Preston get paid for asking daft questions.
Out of work 🤷🏼♀️ ()
It’s too hard to lie about what he said if people actually watch what he said. I’m stuck in my house, and I’ve got nothing better to do. #CoronavirusUSA #PressConference

So bored and frustrated by the “journalists” attempting to look big and clever with their questions at the daily #PressConference - the speakers have told us everything they want us to know. No need for the press questions at all - they are repetitive and offensive at times

Stop broadcasting the dangerous #PressConference !! #FactsMatter

If normal ICU capacity, let alone these Nightingale’s, aren’t near full, why are care homes not sending residents to hospital, and who has told them not to? If only journos could ask vital Q’s rather than “how’s Boris?” 8 times? #PressConference
I wish there was less airtime given to these broken record, double-digit IQ journos. Only good question was pertaining to the antibody testing. #PressConference
#freePalestine #BDS ()
@NorthLeftVoices I had to switch it off. One @Channel4News was even bigging up the government by implying that the government will have spare ICU beds. It is awful what our Media do. They protect and cover for the government. #PressConference
James McGregor ()
At the #PressConference, why do reporters feel the need to ask questions which have already been asked several times, often at the same briefing?

#PressConference looking at the charts, does is not appear the UK may already be at the beginnings of the peak? After a few days of levelling would it not be extraordinary if they suddenly shot up again?
