President Trump's Coronavirus Response Has Saved Over 2 Million Lives and Outperformed Other Nations

Press Release:

    "We will vanquish the virus, we will overcome this pandemic, and we will emerge better, stronger, and more unified than ever before."  -  President Donald J. Trump

    SAVING LIVES AND OUTPERFORMING OTHER NATIONS: The United States has had a lower mortality rate than Europe during the pandemic and one of the lowest fatality rates.

  • President Trump's decisive action has helped save American lives.
  • The United States has a lower excess mortality rate than Europe, including many European countries, such as: the United Kingdom, Belgium, Italy, Spain, and others.
  • The United States has among the lowest case fatality rates of any major country.
  • According to the best estimates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 99.997 percent of individuals aged 19 and younger who contract coronavirus make a full recovery, 99.98 percent of those aged 20 to 49 make a full recovery, and 99.5 percent aged 50 to 69 fully recover.


    FOCUSING ON THE SCIENCE: President Trump is following the science by protecting the vulnerable, preventing hospital overcrowding, and saving lives while ending harmful lockdowns.

  • President Trump has deployed point of care testing equipment, millions of rapid tests, and critical PPE to nursing homes to help protect our seniors.
  • The Administration also put in place safety measures like visitation restrictions, mandated staff testing, and required reporting of cases at certain senior facilities.
  • The Trump Administration mobilized extra beds and personnel to help prevent hospital overcrowding and has deployed medical supplies to aid healthcare workers on the frontlines.
  • Children and young adults are at extremely low-risk of serious illness from coronavirus.
  • Only 0.2 percent of all coronavirus deaths are in those under 25 years old.
  • Of nearly 20,000 total deaths this year in children under 15 years old from any cause, only 0.4 percent involved coronavirus.
  • Of 43,680 total deaths this year in those under 25 years old, only 1 percent involved coronavirus.
  • On the other hand, lockdowns fail to eliminate the virus and are causing irreparable harm to families and children, especially the working class and people with limited resources.
  • Lockdowns have seen cancer cases and other serious illnesses not being diagnosed on time and an increase in drug overdoses and suicides.
  • Due to school shutdowns, children are falling behind in math, reading and other subjects, and have lost access to important support services.
  • The media's fixation on case numbers ignores both the science and the progress made in fighting the virus.
  • Of those under the age of 70 who become infected, over 99 percent recover from the disease.
  • Deaths are down 80 percent and are at the lowest level since late March.
  • The fewest number of counties are reporting more than 10 deaths per day since March of this year.
  • Hospitalizations due to coronavirus are near their lowest level nationally, with less than 6 percent of beds currently occupied by coronavirus patients.
  • COVID-like illnesses make up less than 3 percent of emergency room visits.


    DELIVERING NEW TREATMENTS AND VACCINES IN RECORD TIME: President Trump's Operation Warp Speed is a once-in-a-generation effort to ensure access to a vaccine and life-saving therapies.

  • More than 140 clinical trials for therapeutics are underway and effective therapies have already been developed and deployed, helping lower the fatality rate by over 85 percent since April.
  • The Administration is working to make these therapies and vaccines widely available in record time and as affordable as possible.
  • The Administration is working to develop, authorize, and deploy potentially life-saving antibody treatments while a vaccine is developed.
  • There are 4 vaccines already in the final stage of trials thanks to President Trump's historic efforts.
  • Once a vaccine candidate is authorized, we are in a position to quickly deliver 100 million doses, with hundreds of millions of doses following shortly thereafter
