March 6, 2020. Globally, more than 100,000 people have now been reported with Covid-19, and more than 3,000 people have died. In the U.S., there are more than 200 cases in 20 states. Meanwhile, the Trump administration is trying to downplay the situation, saying that it’s well under control. Although globally, the death rate from the virus is somewhere between 2-3%, Trump said his “hunch” is that it’s actually less than 1%. In a recent rally, Trump claimed that coronavirus is a Democratic hoax, and one of his supporters said yesterday that she doesn’t believe coronavirus exists. Unfortunately, viruses don’t listen to political propaganda and don’t care about lies and misdirection. This virus will continue to spread and may or may not result in a global pandemic, no matter what Trump and his cronies assert.
