White House Walks Back Declaration Of COVID Victory: 'That Was Poorly Worded'

Op-Ed WH Science office credits Trump with'ending the covid pandemic

The daily case counts have surpassed the averages seen over the summer, and on Friday, the US recorded the most new cases in a single day - more than 85,000.

The list, included in a press release from the Office of Science and Technology Policy credits the administration for taking "decisive actions to engage scientists and health professionals in academia, industry, and government to understand, treat, and defeat the disease".

The rosy outlook flies in the face of reality, and underscores the efforts of Trump to continuously try to downplay the severity of the pandemic that continues to rage almost uncontrolled across the country. Nationally, more than 220,000 people have died from COVID-19.

Health officials and scientists working on the USA coronavirus response took offense to a White House report claiming "ending the COVID-19 pandemic" is one of Trump's major first term accomplishments, The Daily Beast reported Tuesday.

A White House aide has admitted that a document that was released Tuesday that claimed that the Trump administration had ended the COVID-19 pandemic was "poorly worded".

The report itself does not mention ending the pandemic as an accomplishment, a spokesperson for the office later noted on Twitter.

White House strategic communications director Alyssa Farah clarified a White House statement regarding the coronavirus pandemic on "America's Newsroom". Baum in the posts wrote that the report is meant to spotlight the progress the administration has made in addressing the pandemic.

"The rest of us still view the threat of those cases as the top concern", the official continued.

As of Wednesday morning, data from the Times showed that the rates of newly reported coronavirus cases were "staying high" in Guam, Puerto Rico, and 37 states that have had a daily average of at least 15 newly reported cases per 100,000 people over the past week.

In the seven remaining USA states and territories, rates of newly reported coronavirus cases were "staying low" as of Wednesday morning, according to the Times' analysis.

Trump has also falsely said the United States is "rounding the corner" on the coronavirus.
