Trump told a crowd of young Arizona supporters yesterday that everything was under control with coronavirus.
Hosted by the conservative nonprofit Turning Point USA, Trump said at a campaign-style event at Dream City Church to about 3,000 college students (most who did not wear masks)
“Someday it’ll be recognized by history …this is “hopefully the end of the pandemic.”
The contrary seems to be the truth. Arizona is one of several states that, with Trump’s urging, has followed an aggressive reopening schedule has the virus surging.
But Dream City Church said that’s not a problem, its members had solved the pandemic.
In a video posted on Sunday, Senior Pastor Luke Barnett and Chief Operations Officer Brendon Zastrow announced excitedly that the church has installed a new air-purification system that kills 99% of the coronavirus. The technology was developed by members of the church. Zastrow says.
“We’ve installed Clean Air EXP.
We have a local Arizona company. It was a technology developed by some members of our church. And we’ve installed these units. And it kills 99 percent of COVID within 10 minutes.
“So when you come into our auditorium, 99 percent of COVID is gone. Killed, if it was even there in the first place. Thank God for good technology.”
So you can know when you come down here, you’ll be safe and protected.”
The company’s website has a blurb stating:
“COVID-19 REPORT: Lab tests confirm that CleanAir EXP eliminates 99.9% of coronavirus from the air in less than 10 minutes.*”
* Biosafety lab analysis performed on active coronavirus 229E test surrogate.”
FYI, Coronavirus 229E is one of the viruses that causes the common cold and is often used in viral studies.
The church has since remove the video from Facebook, but you can see it below.
