U.S. Reports 1,200 Wuhan Virus Deaths in One Day as Mainstream Media Tows the Chinese Communist Party Line
On April 7, 2020 the United States faced its deadliest day of the Wuhan Virus crisis.
According to NBC News, the Wuhan Virus killed 1,264 people over a 24 hour span in America as of 2:05 am ET on April 7. So far, 10,906 Americans have fallen to the Wuhan Virus.
On the other hand, NBC reported that not one death was recorded in the city of Wuhan, where the virus originated.

In the meantime, the Trump Administration has maintained a level-headed approach dealing with the virus.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s leading infectious diseases expert, stated on April 6 he was “cautiously optimistic” that the worst case scenarios could be avoided “if we keep our foot on the accelerator” — making reference to social distancing policies that are in place in most of the country.
Fauci and other officials tasked with handing this crisis stressed the importance of stay-at-home orders during a briefing.
“I don’t think anyone has ever mitigated the way I’m seeing people mitigate right now,” he remarked.
On a more negative note, President Donald Trump warned that in the next week-and-a-half there would be a “big surge” in Wuhan Virus cases and deaths.
The president also noted that his administration was targeting certain places that have been disproportionately affected, which included New York, the city that has been the most impacted by the Wuhan Virus.
“We are pressing into action the full power of American government and American enterprise in our military has been incredible,” he stated.
The lockdown is now being lifted in Wuhan.
A spokesman for China’s National Health Commission warned his countrymen to stay on guard because the country still faces the risk of new outbreaks that could come about as a result of domestic and imported cases.
On April 6, Chinese health officials confirmed the occurrence of 32 new cases of the Wuhan Virus in mainland China.
In a similar vein, Wuhan only reported two new cases of the virus in the past two weeks.
However, these numbers should be a taken with a grain of salt.
After all, China is an authoritarian country, so it will not be known for its respect for transparency.
Previously, the Chinese government reportedly disappeared a scientist that blew the whistle on the virus.
Like its other mainstream counterparts, NBC is praising China and advancing its narratives during a time when the entire world is in a state of chaos due to China’s negligence in containing this virus.
The mainstream is clearly in the tank for China.
