He's numbers obsessed when it come to his image of himself. To him, it's not the people affected that matter, it's how the numbers reflect on him. Testing here got all fucked up, in no small part, because of his desire to keep numbers low. He didn't want to let a cruise ship dock because it would raise his numbers. It doesn't surprise me he's now going out of his way to suppress unemployment numbers. Next it will be deaths attributed to the flu or pneumonia instead of covid-19, in fact I think some of that may already be happening.
