As America bounces back from historic economic lows, the fearmongering is out in full force.
Believe it or not, there are some people in this country who actually do not want to see a thriving economy. With 2020 being an election year, Democrats are interested in anything that may hurt President Trump’s chances of winning a second term in office…even if the American people are casualties in the process.
At this time, fearmongering is taking place in the form of speculations about a second wave of coronavirus. This so-called second wave is being branded as something to follow from America’s gradual, yet phased reopening.
However, there is some good news. In an opinion piece for the Wall Street Journal, Vice President Mike Pence confirmed that rumors about a second wave of coronavirus are baseless and “overblown,” notes Fox News.
The Truth About a Second Wave of Coronavirus
In his piece for WSJ, the vice president stuck with the facts.
The reality is that over 94% of Americans tested for coronavirus came back with negative results. On top of that, more than 50% of states across the nation are seeing declines in COVID-19 cases. These are facts and they don’t align with the leftist narrative that reopening will engender a “second wave” of coronavirus.
“The truth is, whatever the media says, our whole-of-America approach has been a success. We’ve slowed the spread, we’ve cared for the most vulnerable, we’ve saved lives & we’ve created a solid foundation for whatever challenges we may face in the future.” https://t.co/Wh0JzEY1hy pic.twitter.com/OeXYVrq8pI

Later in his op-ed, Pence called out the media for “grim predictions” that are merely designed to scare America. The vice president furthermore informed that a vaccine for coronavirus is likely to become available by the fall of this year.
When the media talks about alleged increases of COVID-19, they’re not talking about an increase in testing. To at least some degree, rampant increases in testing will create a mirage of more coronavirus cases, even when this mirage is not true in reality.
Recently the media has taken to sounding the alarm over a “second wave” of COVID-19 cases. Such panic is overblown. Thanks to President @realDonaldTrump’s leadership & the courage of the American people, we’re winning the fight against the invisible enemy. https://t.co/Wh0JzEY1hy
