Washington, United States:
Donald Trump had advice for people who are worried about the corona virus: be a germophobic like him.
Frequent hand washing has long been a peculiarity of the real estate billionaire and Republican president.
He said his habit was exactly what was needed to protect against the easily spread and potentially fatal corona virus.
"I'm doing it a lot anyway, as you've probably heard," he said at a press conference at the White House, causing laughter.
"Wash your hands, stay clean. You don't necessarily have to grab every handrail unless you have to," Trump said. "If someone sneezes, I try to get out."
Trump told of a recent meeting with someone who was sick – and how he dealt with it.
"I had a man come up to me a week ago. I hadn't seen him in a long time. I said," How are you? "He said," Good, good. "
"He hugs me. I said & # 39; are you okay? & # 39; He said," No, I have the worst fever and the worst flu. "And he hugs and kisses me," Trump said and played the Encounter for journalists.
"So I said & # 39; sorry. & # 39; I went and started washing my hands."
