There is more reported deaths in 2021 with COVID-19 versus 2020 despite widely available vaccines, Greg Gutfeld pointed out on “The Five” Monday.
“Not only [does Biden] has blood on his hands for the number of people who have died under his watch, which is now more than when Trump was president – and Biden has the vaccines. So he has blood on his hands, “Gutfeld said.
In total, more than 771,000 deaths from COVID-19 have been reported since the beginning of the pandemic; 385,000 deaths were reported in 2020 and 386,000 in 2021, according to Johns Hopkins University. Biden took office during a peak of rising COVID-19 deaths, which at its peak amounted to more than 3,000 reported deaths per day in late January 2021. In the months inside his presidency, the numbers plummeted before rising again.
In the early stages of the new coronavirus pandemic, then-candidate Joe Biden and other Democrats said President Trump’s rhetoric about the origins of the new disease was xenophobic.

“We are in the midst of a coronavirus crisis. We need to be at the forefront of science – not Donald Trump’s record of hysteria, xenophobia and fear-manger. He is the worst imaginable person to lead our country through a global health emergency, “Biden said in February 2020.
The following month, Biden said: “Banning all travel from Europe – or any other part of the world – will not stop it.”
The “Five” panel slammed Biden for appearing to flip-flop on COVID, particularly by ordering “air travel restrictions from South Africa and seven other countries” amid growing concern over the omicron variant first discovered in southern Africa. The ban was to take effect on Monday d. according to the White House.
“As the President has said, we will take all precautions and that is why we have taken the measures we have,” said Vice President Kamala Harris.

“He’s also racist for this travel ban,” Gutfeld said, referring to Biden’s earlier comments. “Yeah, I’m just trying to feel like a Democrat, really, because I’m trying to keep up.”
“I mean, everything they criticized Trump for has proven to be correct,” he said. “Whether it’s the vaccines they said were dangerous or you can not trust them or the travel ban, you can go even further back to what you want. But this fear of new varieties is taking off in the US. “It’s like a dead relative saying it’s going to be for a couple of days and it’s going on for months now. We’re ready, we’re done.”
