They can try to sugarcoat it with nicer words, but the fact is researchers at Stanford University are accusing President Donald Trump of killing hundreds – maybe even thousands – of Americans with his rallies.
“Eighteen Trump campaign rallies “ultimately resulted” in more than 30,000 incremental confirmed COVID-19 cases and “likely led to more than 700 deaths,” researchers at Stanford University concluded in a study published Friday,” according to Axios.
“The study focused on 18 rallies between June 20 and Sept. 22. in cities across the U.S., including Tulsa, Phoenix, Bemidji, Pittsburgh, Jacksonville, and Fayetteville. Three of the rallies were held indoors.
Among other findings, the researchers state: “Our results suggest that the rallies resulted in more than 30,000 incremental cases and likely led to more than 700 deaths,” they concluded, noting the 700 deaths were not necessarily among rally attendees.” [emphasis added]
And, “Our analysis strongly supports the warnings and recommendations of public health officials concerning the risk of COVID-19 transmission at large group gatherings, particularly when the degree of compliance with guidelines concerning the use of masks and social distancing is low,” the researchers said.”
Yet, The study has not been peer-reviewed. [emphasis added]
