Mateo: Also on Tuesday, Fauci had said the U.S. was 'knee-deep' in the first wave of coronavirus cases. Fauci's warning stands in contrast to the narrative President Trump has tried to push as he continues to push for the American economy to open, despite the rise in COVID-19 cases. On Tuesday, Trump pointed at the death rate as he encouraged governors to open schools in the fall. 'Again, mortality rate the lowest of anywhere in the world,' Trump reminded the group. He had tweeted a similar message earlier. 'We have the lowest Mortality Rate in the World. The Fake News should be reporting these most important of facts, but they don’t!' the president wrote. And over the weekend, Trump claimed that '99 per cent' of COVID-19 cases are 'harmless.' Fauci acknowledged that the death rate was likely lower because the population that's getting the coronavirus is younger, on average, by 15 years, compared to the Americans infected at the beginning of the outbreak. 'The younger you are, the better you do, and the less likely you're gonna get seriously ill and die,' Fauci said.
