The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy has just issued a press release. You only have to read as far as the first highlight to earn a rueful laugh.
Trump has ended the COVID-19 pandemic? That’s not what the informed authorities are saying.
Nationally, surveillance indicators tracking levels of SARS-CoV-2 virus circulation and associated illnesses have been increasing since September, driven primarily by activity in the Southeastern and Central parts of the country. COVID-19 related hospitalization rates and pneumonia, influenza and COVID (PIC) mortality for the most recent weeks may increase as more data are received.
The Trump administration wasn’t even able to contain the outbreak in the White House.
More personally, about 10% of my cell bio class are currently under quarantine (none diagnosed with the disease fortunately).
Has anyone out there noticed that the pandemic is over? Not me.
