Trump Says Coronavirus Is ‘Dying Out’
DURING AN INTERVIEW, PRESIDENT TRUMP SAID COVID-19 CASES ARE "DYING OUT", DESPITE NEW DATA SHOWING OTHERWISE
(CNN) – The coronavirus death toll in the U.S. has reached more than 117,000 people and it is still growing.
And some states are seeing another disturbing trend; a record average number of new cases.
But according to president Trump, COVID-19 is “dying out”.
During an interview with Gray Television on Wednesday, Trump said he is not worried about his upcoming rally in Oklahoma because the number of new cases is “very miniscule”.
That is despite data showing an increase in COVID-19 infections in dozens of states including Oklahoma.
Trumps says he is not worried about people getting sick or spreading the virus to others because the rally will require temperature checks.
But face masks… Those are still optional.
And with nearly 20,000 people expected to attend, social distancing is not realistic.
Still Trump touted the safety of his campaign rally and praised the Oklahoma governor for efforts to keep COVID numbers down.
Although, on Tuesday the state reported a record increase in new cases.
