Rudy Giuliani doesn't get how coronavirus works. Fox News showcased his misinformation anyway. - 2020-04-24
Rudy Giuliani and Laura Ingraham teamed up to mock the idea of contact tracing — a surveillance tool experts broadly agree is key to getting the US coronavirus outbreak under control. (Contact tracing involves the strategic deployment of testing so anybody who comes in contact with a coronavirus can be tested and, if necessary, quarantined, hopefully nipping outbreaks in the bud.) Giuliani, however, thought it useful to compare Covid-19 to other potentially deadly, but non-infectious, maladies like cancer or heart disease.
After Ingraham brought up a $10.5 million contact tracing program Bloomberg Philanthropies and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) are working together on, Giuliani said, derisively, that "we should trace everybody for cancer, and heart disease, and obesity, and — I mean a lot of things kill you more than Covid-19, so we should be traced for all those things."
