Trump’s Coronavirus Negligence Has Led To 20,000 Americans Deaths — More Than Ebola And Swine Flu Combined

The first death in America as a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) happened on February 29, 2020. In the less than two months that have followed since that first death, according to Johns Hopkins University's COVID-19 resource center, there have been more than 20,000 deaths from COVID-19 in America.

That's a staggering jump in just under two months. The numbers have eclipsed the total number of American deaths from Ebola and swine flu (H1N1) combined.

Ebola and H1N1 were pandemics that came to America during the Obama administration. Ebola wound up killing only 2 Americans. H1N1 claimed 12,469 lives.

But Trump's negligent response to COVID-19 at the start of the pandemic in late January and early February has resulted in nearly double the amount of deaths then both of those two diseases combined.

According to Senior White House Advisor Anthony Fauci, their "model now projects 60,415 people will die in the U.S. by August 4."

If those predictions come true, the COVID-19 could claim more lives than the Vietnam War, Korean War, and Revolutionary War each individually.

Trump severely downplayed the pandemic when the first 15 Americans were infected. Now it seems the pandemic has only just begun to hit us as forcefully as it will. But it might not have had to happen the way it did were Trump to have implemented stricter guidelines and not taken the initial infections with as much lax as he did in the beginning of the spread.

If they could come back and live with all our technological devices they surely would think they are in a completely new alien world. They lived such a simple life without our devices that it seems as if centuries have passed by. In reality most of the discoveries were accomplished in the past twenty years. Indeed we have assisted a total technological distortion. This change in our lives was characterized by a myriad of technological innovations, due to globalization.
