President Trump on Wednesday said data suggests the US has "passed the peak" of the coronavirus outbreak and accused New York of padding its numbers by adding over 3,700 presumed victims to their coronavirus death toll in one day.
From CNBC, "Trump says US has 'passed the peak' of coronavirus outbreak":
President Donald Trump said the U.S. has “passed the peak” of the coronavirus outbreak, which has infected more than 632,000 people in America.From The New York Post, "Trump accuses NYC of padding its coronavirus death toll":
President Trump on Wednesday questioned Mayor Bill de Blasio’s revised coronavirus death toll — a day after New York City revised how it tracks fatalities by adding more than 3,700 victims who died of apparent coronavirus symptoms and were never tested.There's been a lot of promising data suggesting the curve flattened but it's still up in the air whether it will spread again when the quarantines are lifted.
I don't know whether there was any foul play involved with New York boosting its death toll but it's certainly not very scientific. It should be noted the jump in some of the deaths charts out there should not be there as these 3,700 deaths occurred over around three weeks time.
As the full scale of the economic devastation becomes clear over the next few weeks and months there's no question politicians are going to be looking to portray themselves as saviors who shielded us from mass death as opposed to buffoons who downplayed the virus and encouraged its spread in the name of "fighting racism."
