Unreleased White House report shows coronavirus rates spiking in heartland communities

Source: NBC News

Trump's claim that cases are falling everywhere is contradicted by his own task force's report, obtained by NBC News, showing the virus spreading far from the coasts.

Coronavirus infection rates are spiking to new highs in several metropolitan areas and smaller communities across the country, according to undisclosed data the White House's pandemic task force is using to track rates of infection, which was obtained by NBC News.

The data in a May 7 coronavirus task force report are at odds with President Donald Trump's declaration Monday that "all throughout the country, the numbers are coming down rapidly."

The 10 top areas recorded surges of 72.4 percent or greater over a seven-day period compared to the previous week, according to a set of tables produced for the task force by its data and analytics unit. They include Nashville, Tennessee; Des Moines, Iowa; Amarillo, Texas; and ó atop the list, with a 650 percent increase ó Central City, Kentucky.

<...>

The spiking infection rates suggest that the pandemic is spreading quickly outside major coastal population centers that were early hot spots, while governors of some of the states that are home to new hot spots are following Trump's advice to relax stay-at-home restrictions.

14. He did comment.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., whose state included the nation's highest-surging geographic area, said Monday that he has "felt no urgency" for Congress to approve another coronavirus response bill.


That's no way to hold on to a Senate seat. smh

2. Cases in my county doubled over the weekend.

Could just be because of increased testing. Some nearby counties still show zero cases.

5. Why is anyone believing his rosy prognostications?

He's a self-proclaimed cheerleader. If he's pushing a rosy garden prospect, he's lying to you.

24. I think cracking the whip of revoking the business as well as all associated licenses such as a

restaurants liquor license might cause some of these places to reconsider.

11. This is probably why Chump has been so cranky

He knows his base is going to get hit hard.

Because of course, he wants their vote, not that he cares about their safety.

15. What's their end game?

These are red states with no stay at home orders. What are they trying to prove by deliberately spreading it among their base?

When enough people know someone whose life is destroyed or killed by this virus, they're not going to be too eager to reelect the dumbass who presided over this mess no matter who he tries to blame.

17. An "end game" assumes there is a plan in place.

I submit the lack of a plan is at least 75% of this fiasco.

27. United Corporations of America

The Trumphumpers are just being used as a means to an end.....They will suffer as much if not more than we will.
The truth is, they don't give a rat's ass about anyone below the 1%, they are just using their followers as pawns.
Our biggest problem is the RepubliCONs are brainwashing them that it is all the Democrats faults, and of course the minorities..............
