D’Souza Says Hospitals are Overstating Coronavirus Deaths

D’Souza Says Hospitals are Overstating Coronavirus Deaths April 23, 2020

Right-wing crackpot Dinesh D’Souza is pushing the common right-wing claim that hospitals are overstating the number of coronavirus deaths. They offer no evidence for this, of course, but evidence doesn’t matter to them. If it must be true to support their current narrative, then by definition it is true. This has been the standard “reasoning” of Trump.

I love how he just treats this claim as a given, as if he has actual evidence and some way of knowing what the real death toll is. In fact, it’s probably vastly understated due to the lack of testing. Once we have more widespread testing, that number will almost certainly increase significantly.
