Trilled with Trump's COVID Super-Spreader Rallies?

As Trump recovers from the coronavirus and finishes his isolation, he schedules to deliver a speech on Saturday on the South Portico balcony at the White House. Two thousand guests were invited to the event and required to wear a mask and receive a body temperature check.

It seems that Trump (or White House officials) learned the lesson from the Rose Garden celebration for the introduction of Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett several weeks ago. More than 200 people attended the event, which is suspected of contributing to Trump's COVID infection. Among the three-fourths of attendees who did not wear a facial covering, several dozens were later tested positive for the coronavirus. Will D.C. experience another 26% increase in COVID-19 caseload (1), just as it did in the week of the last White House event?
