Even though the number of reported cases has been rising in many states, the coronavirus death rate has dropped significantly.
According to The New York Times, “Overall deaths have dropped dramatically. The 14-day average was down 42 percent as of Saturday.” (emphasis added)
Apparently, the increase in coronavirus cases is among younger people who simply shake it off and continue on with their lives.
It looks to me like the media hype about the increase in cases is simply a ploy to make Trump look bad.
