As the United States continues to set new records for daily coronavirus infections and hospitals across the nation are stretched to capacity, the White House science office put out a press release listing “ending the COVID-19 pandemic” as one of President Trump’s greatest achievements during his first term as president, The Hill reports.
The Trump administration said it “has taken decisive actions to engage scientists and health professionals in academia, industry, and government to understand, treat, and defeat the disease,” according to the press release.
As The Hill points out, over 226,000 people in the U.S. have died from the virus as of this Tuesday. The seven-day average of new cases is almost 70,000. Hospitalizations and deaths are also climbing. There are currently more than 42,000 people hospitalized with the virus.
