White House Economic Adviser Kevin Hassett Claims Nearly Zero Coronavirus Deaths by May 15

White House economic advisor Kevin Hassett, who doesn’t have a background in medicine, claimed on CNN there would be nearly zero coronavirus deaths by May 15 based on his “cubic model.”

A recently-released draft document from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says “covid-19 cases will surge to about 200,000 per day by June 1, a staggering jump that would be accompanied by more than 3,000 deaths each day” and “predicts a sharp increase in both cases and deaths beginning about May 14,” reports the Washington Post.
