U.S. COVID-19 Cases Top 9 Million, as Study Finds Trump Rallies May Have Led to 700+ Deaths

HeadlineNov 02, 2020

Coronavirus cases in the United States topped 9.2 million as scientists warn the virus is spreading at a faster rate than before and hospitals will be pushed beyond capacity. On Friday, nearly 100,000 new cases were reported — the highest single-day number of cases recorded for any country.

A Stanford University study found that Trump rallies between June 20 and September 30 may have led to over 700 COVID-19 deaths and 30,000 new cases. Trump has repeatedly discouraged and mocked mask wearing, while continuing to hold events with tightly packed crowds, with minimal mask wearing, in coronavirus hot spots.
