Live and Let Die blasts as Trump visits mask factory - without mask

As President Donald Trump toured an N95 mask manufacturing plant in Phoenix on Tuesday, his visit through the facility was accompanied by a head-scratching musical soundtrack: the Paul McCartney-penned “Live and Let Die,” as performed by Guns ‘N Roses. The president and his entourage were touring a Honeywell factory that produces the masks, worn by medical workers to protect them from breathing in the deadly COVID-19 virus. Standing next to a green bin filled with hundreds of masks, a notably un-face-masked Trump watched an employee work as the music segued from the Animals’ “House of the Rising Sun” into the song McCartneywrote and recorded for the James Bond film of the same name. The background music for the tour also included Trump rally stalwarts such as Lee Greenwood’s “God Bless the U.S.A.” and Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger.” ____________________________________________________ More on coronavirus: ____________________________________________________ In a tweet, Jimmy Kimmel noted: “I can think of no better metaphor for this presidency than Donald Trump not wearing a face mask to a face mask factory while the song ‘Live and Let Die’ blares in the background.” The song’s climactic blast of music arrived as a Honeywell representative was explaining to the president the ways in which the mask’s material protects against particulates. As he was doing so, Rose could be heard yowling, “If this ever-changing world in which we live in/Makes you give in and cry/say live and let die.” Gallery: Coronavirus - Steps and precautions to take as per WHO guidelines (Picture Services)  Coronavirus (COVID-19) originated in Wuhan, China, in December 2019. When someone coughs, sneezes, or speaks they spray small liquid droplets from their nose or mouth which may contain virus. Where people come together in crowds, you are more likely to come into close contact with someone that has COIVD-19 and it is more difficult to maintain physical distance of 1 metre (3 feet). This means covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze. By following good respiratory hygiene, you protect the people around you from viruses such as cold, flu andCOVID-19. Stay home and self-isolate even with minor symptoms such as cough, headache, mild fever, until you recover. If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention, but call by telephone in advance if possible and follow the directions of your local health authority. Keep up to date on the latest information from trusted sources, such as WHO or your local and national health authorities. Local and national authorities are best placed to advise on what people in your area should be doing to protect themselves. When grocery shopping, keep at least 1-metre distance from others and avoid touching your eyes, mouth and nose. Wash your hands regularly and thoroughly after touching any frequently-touched surface or object, including coins or banknotes.
