This 26 October 2020 video from the USA says about itself:
“We’re Not Gonna Control The Pandemic” – Trump Administration Admits It!
HOW THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION DESTROYED AND DISTORTED OUR DATA The Trump administration has failed on so many different fronts in its handling of the coronavirus, creating the overall impression of sheer mayhem. But there is a common thread that runs through these government malfunctions. Precise, transparent data is crucial in the fight against a pandemic— yet through a combination of ineptness and active manipulation, the government has depleted and corrupted the key statistics that public health officials rely on to protect us. The TeleTracking system hospitals were instructed to funnel information to was riddled with errors, and statistics sometimes appeared after delays. [HuffPost]
WHITE HOUSE FALSELY DECLARES PANDEMIC OVER The Trump administration triumphantly declared victory over the coronavirus pandemic on Tuesday, one week before the 2020 election and with COVID-19 cases surging across the country. The lie came in a news release on a new 62-page report from the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy listing what it claims are the scientific and technological accomplishments during Trump’s first term. The list includes, “ENDING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC.” This comes alongside the news that Congress won’t enact a new coronavirus relief bill before the election — and potentially not before 2021.

COVID-19 SURGES IN CRITICAL MIDWEST BATTLEGROUNDS The coronavirus is getting worse in states that Trump needs the most. In Iowa, polls suggest Trump is in a toss-up race with Biden after carrying the state by 9.4 percentage points four years ago. Trump’s pandemic response threatens his hold on Wisconsin, where he won by fewer than 23,000 votes in 2016. Meanwhile, Trump rally hosts are racking up COVID-19 fines in Nevada, and public health experts have warned that the U.S. is on track to hit 10,000 new cases a day. [AP]
