“Virtually Nobody”

He’s telling crowds that Covid-19 is safe for children:

Trump falsely claimed at a Monday night campaign rally that the coronavirus “affects virtually nobody” below the age of 18 and is mainly a risk to elderly people with heart problems and other preexisting conditions. In a March 19 interview with Washington Post associate editor Bob Woodward, however, Trump acknowledged that “plenty of young people” were affected and admitted that he had downplayed the risks of the virus.

I fervently hope that no one under the age of 18 was infected last night at the rally in Toledo. Not to prove him right but to spare the family the horror.
