A dire announcement about COVID-19 deaths in America just stunned millions of people, but the White House has denied its accuracy. It appears that a federal agency may have gone completely rogue.
“This is not a White House document, nor has it been presented to the coronavirus task force or gone through interagency vetting,” said Deputy Press Secretary Judd Deere, referring to a report released this week by FEMA.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has projected that the United States will see an estimated 3,000 deaths a day “by early June,” according to a breakdown by the Washington Examiner.
FEMA’s report also projected “about 20,000 new cases each day by the end of the month,” however, Deere has heavily disputed this data as well. “This data is not reflective of any of the modeling done by the task force,” he said.
Deere even pointed out that the task force hasn’t analyzed the kind of data in the FEMA report. One has to wonder, then, why FEMA even released this projection in the first place. Why wouldn’t they consult the task force?
As states begin to slowly open back up, it is crucial that Americans receive dependable information — not conflicting reports. Trump’s task force is the most informed and best equipped entity to handle this matter.
