There has been an extreme lack of transparency from the White House when it comes to President Donald Trump’s health, even after he contracted COVID-19.

The White House has said Trump was diagnosed on October 1, but the administration’s refusal to

SINGAPORE (EDGEPROP) – Covid-19 has thrown a curveball at showflat designers like Angela Lim, co-founder of SuMisura, whose firm has had to adapt designs to comply with safe distancing restrictions.

Pointing to SuMisura’s latest completed project, the sales gallery and loft show unit for Forett at Bukit Timah, Lim says, “Originally, we designed interactive spaces in the sales gallery. But everything has changed since then.”

The 633-unit freehold development by Qingjian Realty was the first large-scale project to open for preview at the end of July after “circuit breaker” measures on showflats were lifted. To highlight the project’s proximity to the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve, SuMisura had included greenery and planter boxes within a contemporary and edgy interior.

Why would Dries Van Noten open his first U.S. store in the middle of a pandemic?

The building, a former jewelry factory, is surrounded by local foliage. "For me a store has to be unique, reflect the city it's in, and the person who keeps the store," the designer said.

At 8,500 square feet, Belgian fashion designer Dries Van Noten’s new shop — his seventh — is his largest, bigger than the ones in his hometown of Antwerp, Belgium, or in Paris. Located on La Cienega Boulevard in Los Angeles, in the home of a former jewelry factory and across from the stalwart diner Norms, the spacious store, which opened Friday, would feel ambitious in scope even if it weren’t for the fact that it came together during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We thought, ‘Well, it’s not the most obvious time. It’s not the most easy time,’” Van Noten said on

The White House has dodged questions for six straight days about when Trump last tested negative for the coronavirus

At least three other White House officials have dodged the same question for six straight days, examples of which you can watch in the video above. Trump’s last negative test is one of several pieces of incomplete or contradictory information about his coronavirus infection that the White House has refused to clarify. Health experts have said the negative test information is needed to know how long Trump may have been contagious and who might have to isolate after coming into contact with him.

On Saturday, White House physician Sean Conley declined to say when Trump last tested negative.

On Tuesday, Morgenstern said he did not know when Trump last tested negative.

And by Thursday, White House communications director Alyssa Farah told reporters, “I can’t reveal that at this time, the doctors would like to keep it private.”

Earlier this week, two officials familiar with the situation told The Washington Post

New York pharmacist sent cocaine to DEA agent probing his store, feds say

A New York City pharmacist under investigation by federal drug authorities allegedly took “sinister action” to disrupt the probe: he had a greeting card filled with cocaine sent to the home of the lead investigator, prosecutors charged Friday.

Dimitrios Lymberatos, 34, was charged with one count each of obstruction of justice and conspiracy to obstruct justice for seeking to “interfere with the investigation through intimidation,” said acting U.S. Attorney Audrey Strauss.

“Lymberatos’s misguided message was received loud and clear – and he now faces the possibility of a lengthy prison term for his potentially harmful attempt to obstruct law enforcement,” Strauss said.

Lymberatos, who operates a pharmacy in Queens, surrendered to authorities Friday morning. He faces up to 40 years in prison if convicted on both counts.

“I’m still in shock right now,” said a person who answered the phone at Lymberatos’s store, Village Pharmacy. “We’re just at a loss

Trump sets big events for WH, Florida, restarting campaign

WASHINGTON (AP) — Looking to shove his campaign back on track, President Donald Trump and his team laid out an aggressive return to political activities on Friday, including a big Saturday White House event and a rally in Florida on Monday, a week after his hospitalization for the coronavirus that has killed more than 210,000 Americans.

As questions linger about his health — and Democratic opponent Joe Biden steps up his own campaigning — Trump is planning to leave Washington for the first time since he was hospitalized. He is also increasing his radio and TV appearances with conservative interviewers, hoping to make up for lost time with just over three weeks until Election Day and millions already voting.

The president has not been seen in public — other than in White House-produced videos — since his return days ago from the military hospital where he received experimental treatments for
