More than 184,000 Americans have lost their lives in this pandemic. Trump has lied and misled about coronavirus among the public. Following last week’s Republican National Convention that largely ignored the virus, Trump is making yet another premature declaration of victory over the worst public health disaster in 100 years.
“Mr. Trump, you want to talk about fear?” democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden asked on Monday.
“Do you know what people are afraid of in America? They’re afraid they’re going to get COVID. They’re afraid they’re going to get sick and die, and that is in no small part, it’s because of you.”
“We risk a blow-back. We risk one step forward, three steps backward,” said Dr. Tom Frieden, a former director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, told CNN’s Chris Cuomo on Monday night.
Many arguments have been made by the Trump administration regarding Coronavirus. They have even made a theory regarding this virus. The idea depends on permitting the virus to spread to build community resistance. Independent medical experts caution such a methodology could prompt several million US death in the long term.
“That’s what happened with this administration opening too soon in southern states. That’s what’s happening in schools opening where there’s lots of COVID, and having to slam shut again.”, said Dr. Tom Frieden.
