Coronavirus casualties are rising rapidly by the day in America, which has become the new epicenter for the pandemic.

In economic terms, US leader Trump has formally signed a $2.2 trillion stimulus package as the nation bids to stave off even more disaster.

And in seeking thoughts from various quarters on how to handle the crisis, Trump has apparently turned to New York Yankees legend Alex Rodriguez and his partner, pop princess Jennifer Lopez.

Reports from ABC News’ John Santucci and Katherine Faulders state that Trump called the man known as A-Rod for his “thoughts” on the pandemic amid a “marathon” of meetings last week.

The supposedly unconventional approach provided ample ammunition for Trump-bashers, who questioned what exactly the 44-year-old former slugger and his popstress partner could bring to the table regarding the battle against the raging outbreak.

Others though felt that the baseball star was a logical choice for pharmaceutical advice, considering the 14-time All-Star was once banned for an entire season for violating MLB’s performance-enhancing drugs policy. 

And this being Trump-era America, some presidential fans dismissed the claims outright as being fake news…

With or without A-Rod and J-Lo’s help, Trump and the US continue to battle a deadly outbreak which on Friday hit the 100,000 cases mark, putting it out in front of even the likes of China – where the outbreak began – and Italy, which had previously been the epicenter of the pandemic.
