Tяцmp☠ WANTS that 100,000 number to be invisible, because he doesn’t want any witnesses to the most egregious abdication of responsibility and dereliction of duty in history.
Most all of that 100,000 number — at least 86% of it — is due directly to Tяцmp☠’s malfeasance.
Compare with South Korea, which had its first confirmed case of COVID-19 (aka Tяцmp☠ virus, aka COVFEFE-45) the SAME DAY as the first case in the United States, so the same starting line.
South Korea has many large, densely populated cities (Seoul has more people than New York City, in a smaller area), with five cities that have more than a million people, and several more close to it, had its first confirmed case of community transmission the same day as the U.S. it jumped immediately into action, with massive TESTING to IDENTIFY cases (including asymptomatic), ISOLATE positive cases, do extensive CONTACT TRACING and TARGETED, narrowly-focused QUARANTINING.
As a result, South Korea’s death rate from COVID-19, equalized to a per capita comparison basis, is FIVE per million of population and holding steady. The U.S. death rate is 304 per mission of population and still rising.
The U.S. has 4% of the world’s population but 29% of the total world deaths.
Everything over the world average can be attributed directly to Trump. That would come to less than 14,000 people instead of 100,000. So 86,000 excess deaths go to Trump.
