More Covid-19 cases among Fox/ viewers

Watching Hannity is hazardous to your health. 

 

Study Finds More COVID-19 Cases Among Viewers Of Fox News Host Who Downplayed Pandemic Researchers at the Becker Friedman Institute for Economics at University of Chicago took a deep dive into those implications in the working paper "Misinformation During a Pandemic," in which they examined the audience that watched Hannity versus Tucker Carlson Tonight. Hannity downplayed coronavirus as just the flu and emphasized that Democrats were politicizing the virus to undermine Trump.  

The paper says viewership of Hannity relative to Carlson is associated with approximately 30% more COVID-19 cases by March 14, and 21% more COVID-19 deaths by March 28.
