As President Donald Trump entered the final year of his term last January, the U.S. recorded its first confirmed case of COVID-19.

It’s time to treat the COVID-19 vaccine campaign as if we are at war

Fauci to Trump after he tweeted the CDC exaggerates the number of COVID-19 cases: 'The deaths are real'

President Donald Trump. Getty President Donald Trump on Sunday said the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention — led by people he appointed himself — tracks coronavirus case and death rates inaccurately.  The number of US cases and deaths "is far exaggerated," he said in a tweet Sunday, a claim that Dr. Anthony Fauci and other experts have disputed. It's far likelier that the CDC underexaggerates cases. Experts for months have said case and death toll rates are actually much higher tha...
