Speaking at an Italians for Trump event in Philadelphia this Monday, Rudy Giuliani gave a rather rosy assessment of the current state of the coronavirus pandemic.
“People don’t die of this disease anymore,” Giuliani said.
“Young people don’t die at all,” he claimed. “Middle age people die very little, and even elderly people have only one percent chance of dying.”
As Mediate points out, Pennsylvania currently has one of the highest virus death rates in the country, with 65 deaths per 100,000 people. According to CDC director Dr. Tom Frieden this Saturday, a further 20,000 deaths by the end of October is “inevitable.”
