Trump’s team has data showing counties with hundreds or thousands more daily COVID-19 cases if they reopen
Published 1 min ago on May 6, 2020By Sarah K. Burris



President Donald Trump’s own White House has data showing that there could be hundreds if not thousands of daily COVID cases if they reopen. Still, the president is pushing forward with his decision to put his economy before the lives of Americans.

The Daily Beast reported Wednesday about a study from the PolicyLab at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia that is now in the hands of the coronavirus task force officials. They are working with the team, sources confirmed.

“It projects that if officials move too quickly and too aggressively to reopen in mid-May, individual counties could witness hundreds, if not a thousand-plus, more coronavirus cases reported each day by August 1,” said the Beast. “A mere two weeks more of social distancing, the study projects, could result in substantial progress in keeping infections down—with potentially hundreds of thousands of fewer cases if the projections are conservatively expanded out to all 3,000-plus counties across the country."
