This Wednesday, President of the United States, Donald Trump, blamed the anti-racism protests that have emerged following the death of Afro-American citizen George Floyd due to the increase in coronavirus cases in the North American country.
“There are many likely causes of the increase in infectious cases,” Trump said during the White House Coronavirus Task Force press conference before adding that “the cases among young Americans began to grow shortly after the protests, which are believed to be one triggered broader easing of mitigation efforts across the country. “
Another likely cause pointed out by the President is a “significant increase” in travel between regions of the United States, “vacation gatherings like Memorial Day,” and young people who are likely to congregate in bars and bars somewhere else. “
“Maybe the beaches,” he continued, before deporting the pandemic situation in Mexico, the country with which it shares a border. “We also share a 3,000 km border with Mexico and know very well that the number of cases there is increasing.”
