Trump’s COVID task force keen on Trump White House’s ‘We have ended COVID’ report

Health officials and scientists working on the Trump administration’s coronavirus response said on Tuesday they were personally offended by the White House’s announcement that it had successfully ended the COVID-19 pandemic – a pandemic which, in fact, is getting worse.

In a statement released Tuesday afternoon, the White House Office for Science and Technology Policy said it viewed “ending the COVID-19 pandemic” as one of President Donald Trump’s main achievements for the first term. The office released a corresponding report listing the Trump administration’s achievements in science and innovation.

“It’s mind-boggling,” an official said of the White House claim that it had ended the pandemic. “There is no world in which anyone can think that [statement] is right. Maybe the president. But I don’t see how even he can believe that. We have over 70,000 new cases every day. “

Four officials working with the White House Coronavirus Task Force told the Daily Beast that they viewed the White House statement as a personal rebuke and a public rebuke of their efforts to try to control the virus.
