The U.S. set a new record this week for the average number of daily coronavirus cases recorded in the country, which comes nearly a year into Democrat President Joe Biden’s first year in office.
The new record for the seven-day average of coronavirus cases comes after the U.S. set a record earlier this week for a single day high of coronavirus cases recorded in a single day.
“Wednesday’s seven-day average of new daily cases, 301,000, was also a record, compared with 267,000 the day before,” The New York Times reported. “In the past week, more than two million cases have been reported nationally, and 15 states and territories reported more cases than in any other seven-day period.”
The news comes after Biden repeatedly pledged while on the campaign trail that he would “shut down the virus.” More Americans have now died on Biden’s watch than died under former President Donald Trump.
The CDC reported back in January that on January 20, 2021, at 1:16 p.m., there were 400,306 deaths recorded in the U.S. from the coronavirus. Biden officially became president of the United States at noon on that day.
Since then, the number of people who have died from coronavirus under Biden’s watch is now greater than 400,306.
According to the most recent CDC data published at the time this report was published, 800,939 Americans have died from the coronavirus, which means that at least 400,633 Americans have died under Biden’s leadership. Other entities like The New York Times, however, currently report the U.S. has 803,964 deaths from the coronavirus, a number that continues to climb daily with no end in sight.
Biden’s disastrous handling of the coronavirus pandemic is even worse when considering the fact that he had highly effective vaccines at his disposal from his very first day in office to get the pandemic under control.
When asked at the start of the month about what happened to his plan to “shut down the virus,” Biden smirked and walked away.

When confronted this week about his “responsibility” for the Americans that have died under his watch, Biden again smirked, threw his hand up at the reporter and walked away.
REPORTER: “800,000 coronavirus deaths — do you have a statement on your responsibility? And why haven’t you asked China to do more, to be transparent on the origins?”

Biden claimed during the 2020 campaign that Trump was essentially responsible for every American that died during the pandemic, a claim that was quickly debunked by mainstream fact-checkers.
“If the president had done his job, had done his job from the beginning, all the people would still be alive,” Biden falsely claimed. “All the people—I’m not making this up. Just look at the data. Look at the data.”
Biden claims Trump is responsible for every single person who has died from COVID-19:

About a month after Biden falsely claimed that Trump was responsible for every American who died from coronavirus, Biden claimed that Trump “should not remain President of the United States” because he was “responsible” for “220,000 deaths.”
If you hear nothing else I say tonight, hear this: Anyone who is responsible for that many deaths should not remain President of the United States.

Amid plummeting approval ratings, Biden told governors on Monday that there was “no federal solution” and that challenges combatting the coronavirus pandemic “gets solved at the state level.”
The number of Americans who say that Biden is doing a “bad job” in responding to the pandemic has doubled from 23% during Biden’s first month in office to 46% as of last month.
