America’s crime pandemic has led to murders surpassing coronavirus deaths in Washington, DC, by nearly a three-to-one ratio in July.
“There were 21 homicides throughout the month compared to eight coronavirus deaths” in the city, according to Fox News.
Councilman of Ward 8 Trayon White told Fox5 DC, “We’ve put a lot of resources and time into the COVID pandemic.
“We’re in a pandemic right now when it comes to crime in this community and we got to start acting it,” he stated.

From July 30, there were 114 homicides in Washington, DC, since January 1, which surpasses the data from last year, when Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA violent riots struck the city.
The crime pandemic comes as Washington, DC’s, Mayor Muriel Bowser (D) implemented Saturday a masking mandate in which there was a 0.43 14-day average coronavirus death rate in the city, according to Google’s coronavirus tracker on July 31.
Let’s stay in this together, DC. By masking up, we can protect our community and keep DC open.
