Aside from another op-ed by Kellyanne Conway’s husband on her boss, we have Trump’s number. This time it could be a COVID-19 death toll of over a million, depending on the counter-measures, and despite Trump’s incompetence.
After weeks of denial and deflection, a seemingly chastened Trump on Monday conceded that the virus was, in fact, “not under control,” and was, indeed, “a very bad one.” What caused the switch in tone? Who knows? Perhaps it was the largest one-day point drop in the Dow Jones in history on Monday. Perhaps it was a study the White House received saying that 2.2 million Americans could die. Perhaps it was that Trump’s beloved Mar-a-Lago is getting a coronavirus-necessitated deep cleaning.
Darn those existential threats.
The Kushner family is trying to cash in on the pandemic that could kill millions of us.
Oscar Health, the health insurance company co-founded by Jared Kushner's younger brother,announced Friday it has launched a testing center locator for COVID-19. It shows where more than 100 centers are in the United States. The company is also offering a risk assessment survey and means to talk to a doctor online.
Trump reportedly tried to woo a German company working on a cure for the coronavirus to move here and make a vaccine only for us.
Joshua Kushner co-founded Oscar Health in 2012. His co-founders are Mario Schlosser, the company CEO, and Harvard Business School classmate Kevin Nazemi who left the company in 2015.
Jared Kushner, Trump's son-in-law, has become increasingly involved in Team Trump's response to the pandemic. He helped write Trump's half-baked Oval Office speech on the disease. The Kushner brothers co-founded Cadre, a real-estate investing start-up.
Oscar Health was criticized in 2018 for selling health insurance in Ohio through the Affordable Care Act with a deductible of $15,800. The company sold health insurance under the Affordable Care Act in 15 states for 2020.
