'Trump Death Clock' in New York counts preventable US Covid-19 deaths

The worst hit country in the world the United States with more than 80,000 deaths and the most severely affected state, NY with with 26,682 fatalities came up with a newly erected billboard in the Times Square that shows the number of coronavirus deaths.

As the United States nears 80,000 COVID-19 deaths, President Trump enthusiastically claimed Monday that things are looking "much better" in terms of the coronavirus pandemic, with "numbers" - presumably new infections, deaths, and hospitalizations - improving across the board.

The "clock" ticks on the assumption that 60 percent of COVID-19 deaths in the United States could have been prevented had the Trump administration implemented mandatory social distancing and school closures just a week earlier than it did, on March 9 instead of March 16, Jarecki explained in a post on Medium. The Trump adminustration has been criticized for delays in its COVID-19 response. According to NIAID Director Dr. Anthony Fauci, "there was a lot of pushback" to this advice. President Trump declined to act until March 16th.

However using the formula could be seen as over-simplifying the complexity of the pandemic and being politically motivated. "We are testing more people per capita than South Korea, the United Kingdom, France, Japan, Sweden, Finland, and many other countries, in some cases combined", Trump said at a White House briefing.

Justice Sonia Sotomayor questioned the validity of using the president as a "case study" for potential future legislation. As a result, the three financial institutions would be free to send the documents to Congress - or to refuse.

"This would begin to honor those who lost their lives and, in their memory, demand more responsive and responsible leadership", he added in the op-ed.

"This week the United States will pass 10 million tests conducted, almost double the number of any other country".

"We have met the moment and we have prevailed", he said.
