🧵As an ER doctor, I’ve seen firsthand #COVID19 indiscriminately young people. This ongoing thread is dedicated to the 1000s between 18 and 45 killed by COVID & ignored by Trump

@realDonaldTrump:[They] don’t talk about deaths, because deaths are WAY down
I'll add deaths to this thread periodically, because there is a dangerous narrative propagated by @realDonaldTrump and @GOP that young people are not affected by #COVID19. Nothing is further from the truth.
