COVID narrative shifts with Biden’s inauguration

On Jan. 19, NPR ran the headline “As Death Rate Accelerates, U.S. Records 400,000 Lives Lost to Coronavirus.” But on Jan. 21, it featured a story titled “Current, Deadly U.S. Coronavirus Surge Has Peaked, Researchers Say.”

In fact, a New York Times chart tracking cases and deaths indicated the surge peaked before Trump left office, with a 21% decline in cases since Jan. 9.
