WASHINGTON (AP) — Truth often takes a beating when President Donald Trump talks about his administration’s response to the coronavirus and the subsequent death toll in the U.S. This past week was no exception.

Over the weekend, the president claimed strong marks for himself for the handling of the pandemic after imposing a “very early ban of people from China.” It actually wasn’t a total ban and had plenty of gaps in containment. One of the government’s top health officials has described the China restrictions as too little, too late.

Trump also asserted that the United States is on par with Germany in keeping down COVID-19 deaths, which is not the case in mortality reports. And he’s brushed off projections that deaths in his country will double from earlier forecasts, misrepresenting how the numbers were calculated.

Note that the pandemic took hold in the USA from Europe, not China even though some 40k people came to the USA from China after his ban took effect.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

My understanding is that NYC is from Europe, but some places like Wash State and CA came from China.

I saw a map a few days ago that showed that some pockets around Seattle, S.F. , and L.A. were connected to China, but the vast majority of cases vectored back to N.Y.C. , and were ultimately traced back to Europe, with major connections to Italy.
