The United States, under the leadership of Democrat President Joe Biden, set a new global daily record of more than 1 million coronavirus cases on Monday which comes despite Biden’s pledge on the campaign trail to “shut down the virus.”
“The highly mutated variant drove U.S. cases to a record, the most — by a large margin — that any country has ever reported since the pandemic began more than two years ago. Monday’s number is almost double the previous record of about 590,000 set just four days ago in the U.S., which itself was a doubling from the prior week,” Bloomberg News reported. “America’s daily case count on Monday was more than twice the number seen in any other country at any time. The highest number outside the U.S. came during India’s delta surge, when more than 414,000 people were diagnosed on May 7, 2021.”
The report said that the new recorded numbers come as many Americans are relying on at-home tests, which are not reported to government health officials, to see if they have been infected with the coronavirus. “This means that the new record is surely a significant under-estimate,” the report added.
More Americans have now died from the coronavirus under Biden’s leadership than died from the virus under former President Donald Trump, according to CDC data published last month.
The development comes as Biden’s approval rating continues to remain low as more and more Americans are disapproving of his handling of the pandemic than at any other point during his first year in office.
The CDC reported back in January that on January 20, 2021, at 1:16PM, 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 recent CDC data, at least 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 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.
Biden repeatedly promised while on the campaign trail that he was going to “shut down the virus,” and while its true that new variants have emerged, the fact remains that he has not “shut down the virus” and more Americans have now died under his leadership than under Trump.
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.”
