The Trump administration may have been lying about coronavirus case numbers. The number of cases appeared to have flattened in the United States on the exact day that hospitals were told not to send data to CDC but to Alex Azar, who runs Health and Human Services. At the exact same time the data reporting change happened, July 15th and 16th, cases started to level off. Even more stunningly, a complete reversal in case trends took place in the states that Trump won in 2016.
From everything we know, it takes weeks, if not months, to turn these trend lines around. Red states are being less cautious when it comes to social distancing policies and masks. Even if they were, the change in approach would have to have happened weeks before to see the effect starting by July 16th. It’s not a totally open-and-shut case but the entire thing wreaks of corruption and needs to be called out.
