Trump's campaign made stops nationwide. Coronavirus cases surged in his wake in at least 5 places

U.S.A. Today:

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/investigations/2020/10/22/trumps-campaign-made-stops-nationwide-then-coronavirus-cases-surged/3679534001/

An investigation into the latest accelerated spread of coronavirus in multiple states appears to be linked to President Donald Trump's string of campaign rallies over the last several weeks.

As coronavirus plagues states all across America, Trump continues to blatantly disregard how dangerous his campaign rallies are for his campaign staff, White House advisors and aides, and everyone who attends his political events. Now, USA Today has explained the extent of the spreads in several counties following the rallies

Together, those counties saw 1,500 more new cases in the two weeks following Trumpís rallies than the two weeks before Ė 9,647 cases, up from 8,069.

Public health officials additionally have linked 16 cases, including two hospitalizations, with the rally in Beltrami County, Minnesota, and one case with the rally in Marathon County, Wisconsin. Outside of the counties identified by USA TODAY with a greater case increase after rallies, officials identified four cases linked to Trump rallies.

Although thereís no way to determine definitively if cases originated at Trumpís rallies, public health experts say the gatherings fly in the face of all recommendations to curb the spread of the coronavirus.

USA TODAY reviewed coronavirus case counts in the counties where Trump attended rallies starting from mid-August through mid-October. The news organization examined the rate of increase in virus cases for the two weeks before and after campaign events. For rallies occurring within the past two weeks, not enough time has passed to draw conclusions.

1. Go to a Trump super spreader event, get COVID...

How STUPID do people have to be?

But then, these are Trump voters. They are at the bottom of the IQ food chain.

2. Your top sentence says it all.."Go To Trump super spreader event, get Covid.."

Going to a large outdoor event, with people jammed in right next to each other, ain't too smart. You can see the pictures all over the internet of the tight large crowds jammed in very close.. Very sad.

Kind of like Trump saying, "Come to my events and you will be safe. "
....The exact opposite of the truth...Perhaps one of his worst lies....But his crowd believe the liar..
Even after all these weeks & months of this terrible pandemic...The crowd believes liar and they
won't get it. Very sad..
