United States President Donald Trump's most recent campaign rallies, held between June 20 and September 22, resulted in more than 30,000 new infections from COVID-1, a group of researchers from Stanford University claimed in their paper published on Saturday.

Their work noted the "communities in which Trump rallies took place paid a high price in terms of disease and death" due to the "low [...] degree of compliance with guidelines concerning the use of masks and social distancing."

Earlier this week, the president criticized Minnesota Governor Tim Walz and the state's Attorney General Keith Ellison's decision to limit the number of people allowed to attend his campaign event in that state, calling them "radical left Democrats."
