A post from the Donald Trump campaign was removed on Wednesday from Facebook and Twitter for violating the rules of the social media sites.

The post, which was shared by Team Trump, featured a video of the president spreading misinformation about the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in an interview on Fox News.

“If you look at children, children are almost — and I would almost say definitely — but almost immune from this disease,” Trump said in the removed video, according to a report from The Washington Post.

Children are not immune to COVID-19. More than 240,000 children have contracted the contagious respiratory virus in the United States, the Post reported.

The Team Trump tweet “is in violation of the Twitter Rules on COVID-19 misinformation,” a Twitter spokesperson said in a statement to PEOPLE. “The account owner will be required to remove the

Dr. Anthony Fauci calls US plateau of cases ‘unacceptable’; Beirut explosion devastates ‘struggling’ health system

Days after President Donald Trump defended his administration’s “incredible” handling of the coronavirus outbreak in a widely viewed interview, the nation’s top health official called the country’s response “disparate” and “not as well suited” to the dynamics of the pandemic.

“What happened when the rubber hit the road on this, and we did get hit, we had the kind of response that was not as well suited to what the dynamics of this outbreak is,” Dr. Anthony Fauci said during a Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health forum Wednesday. “What happened is, we had a bit of a disparate response.”

The country’s response has allowed the daily COVID-19 case count to plateau at an “unacceptable level,” Fauci said, warning that the U.S. will continue to “smolder” without a unified effort to stop the virus. 

Here are some significant developments:

What Each King County School District Is Doing This Fall: LIST

KING COUNTY, WA — Earlier this summer Washington’s schools had reason to be optimistic: as coronavirus case counts and transmission rates dipped, the state superintendent ordered schools to prepare to reopen their classrooms for in-person learning in the fall.

In late July, Public Health — Seattle & King County voiced support for districts that had already announced extended remote learning plans, citing concerning coronavirus trends.

“When it comes to COVID-19 activity, schools have been put in a position of having to make decisions based on the actions of our entire community, ” said Patty Hayes, the director of public health. “No educator, parent, or public health professional would choose to limit face-to-face interaction that we know is so critical for our

Buy These 5 Stocks Before It’s Too Late

Earnings season is a great time to dive into stocks because there’s a certain amount of certainty that comes from all the related discussions.

This is when our expectations about the just-concluded quarter are met, exceeded or missed. It’s also when we get a somewhat clearer picture about the next quarter and at times, also the year. So jumping into stocks that have announced resounding beats and encouraging outlooks are a no-brainer.

It also pays to hang around a couple of days to see what impression brokers have come away with. And the best way that is captured is in the estimate revisions. So if management has good things to say about the company and its future and brokers come back with higher estimates, you know for sure that good things are going on.  

But since you’ve waited for the broker reports, some of the good news is likely to
