Study links Trump rallies to more than 700 Covid deaths [View all]

Source: Politico

President Donald Trump's campaign rallies between June and September may have caused some 30,000 coronavirus infections and more than 700 deaths, according to a new study by Stanford University economists.

The working paper, released late Friday, examined the impact of 18 rallies held between June 20 and Sept. 30 by comparing spread of the virus after each event to parts of the country that didn't host rallies. The findings illustrate the risks of not heeding public health warnings to wear masks and avoid large gatherings to mitigate the risks of Covid-19, the authors -- including B. Douglas Bernheim, the chair of Stanford's economics department -- wrote.

"The communities in which Trump rallies took place paid a high price in terms of disease and death," they wrote. Fifteen of the 18 events studied were held outdoors.

Trump has drawn criticism for continuing to hold events with large, tightly packed crowds in states that are experiencing outbreaks. Many in attendance, including Trump, have not worn masks.

Trump is definitely making a running for worse mass murderer in U.S. History. He already puts Typhoid Mary to shame and she was confined for decades for continuing to serve as a cook even though she had typhoid fever.
