Your Daily Roundup for September 23rd
Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
Good morning. As the COVID-19 pandemic takes a toll on life in America, our team at Future Majority is tracking the latest updates:
An unimaginable toll:
The United States surpassed 200,000 deaths from COVID-19 yesterday, an unfathomable toll that has ripped apart families and impacts tens of thousands of communities. The death toll in this country is higher than anywhere else in the world as the virus has taken hold of the globe for the past nine months.
Unfortunately, deaths are still on the rise. There have been nearly 770 deaths each day on average. A model that many experts and the White House itself cites has predicted a staggering 400,000 American lives lost by the end of this year alone.
We’ll hear from Dr. Fauci and other top doctors today:
On the heels of the devastating death toll, Dr. Anthony Fauci and other leading health officials will testify before the Senate today about the federal government’s response to the pandemic. Dr. Fauci will be joined by FDA Commissioner, Dr. Stephen Hahn, the official in charge of testing, Adm. Brett Giroir, and CDC Director, Dr. Robert Redfield. Senators will be sure to question Dr. Redfield on the recent changes in guidance around how COVID-19 is spread that was then only a few days later pulled down from the CDC website, as well as other reports and allegations of political interference at the health agency.
A shift in Florida and Arizona:
For much of the summer, former Vice President Joe Biden has been leading President Trump in the polls in Florida. Now as we enter fall, a new ABC News/Washington Post poll finds Trump leading in the key state by 4 points:
- Biden: 47%
- Trump: 51%
The same story has been found in Arizona. After weeks of leading on the part of Biden, he now narrowly trails Trump within the margin of error:
- Biden: 48%
- Trump: 49%
