The Danger Grows - Trump Incompetence
Despite Trump’s efforts to hide this news, The New York Times just reported that the Trump Administration has made private projections showing that COVID-19 deaths are expected to spike to 3,000 per day in June — DOUBLE the previous projections.
Their new projections also match a new forecast by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which shows that new daily infection rates will increase from 25,000 to a staggering 200,000 by June.
Donald Trump is defying health experts by pushing to prematurely reopen our economy. After months of failing to develop a national testing program, Trump is advocating that states to reopen without any transparent or overarching test and trace program. This haphazard decision puts American lives at risk because we don’t have a way to detect or limit future COVID-19 outbreaks or spread.
The longer we wait to implement a national testing program, the higher the death toll will be.
