Science Magazine: Trump Lied About Corovavirus And It Has Cost Many Lives

The editor-in-chief of Science magazine, Holden Thorp, published a harsh editorial on Friday against US President Donald Trump, whom he accused of lying “flatly” and “deliberately” about the severity of COVID-19 to citizens, something which has cost many of them their lives.

“Trump lied about science,” is the title of the editorial, in which Thorp refers to the recordings that this Wednesday came to light of some of the conversations the president had with journalist Bob Woodward for his new book, ” Rage ”.

In them, the president admitted that in February he underestimated the danger posed by the coronavirus so as not to create panic, although he was already aware of its severity.

“While playing down the virus to the public, Trump was not misled or improperly informed: he outright lied, repeatedly, about science to the American people. These lies demoralized the scientific community and cost countless lives in the United States, ”Thorp noted.

And he added that, since the veteran journalist recorded the conversations with the president “we can hear Trump’s own voice saying that he understood precisely” that SARS-Co-2 was deadly.

The editor-in-chief of one of the most important scientific journals in the world considered that “this may be the most shameful moment in the history of science policy in the United States.”

“A president of the United States has deliberately lied about science in a way that was imminently dangerous to human health and that led directly” to the deaths of Americans.
