Former FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb explained the fall in cases and hospitalizations has been driven by sharp declines in Sunbelt states.
RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel also highlighted America’s latest success in fighting COVID-19. During a recent interview, she stated the U.S. is developing new treatments and is moving forward with a vaccine.
She touted President Trump’s efforts to save American lives by pointing out how quickly he provided thousands of additional hospital beds and ventilators to those in need.
McDaniel noted the coronavirus and its effects have been an unprecedented challenge for the American people. She also said the U.S. economy is steadily recovering from COVID shutdowns.
“We are seeing the mortality rates go down, (and) we have passed 100 million tests,” stated the RNC chairwoman. “We just bought 150 million rapid tests from Abbott Labs that are going to change the way we can handle this pandemic, help us get back to work and get our economy going.”
McDaniel went on to criticize Joe Biden and top Democrat officials for politicizing COVID-19.
