The crash didn't kill anybody. It was a COVID-19 death.

Not really. But I'm just reminding the news of the narrative they're supposed to be pushing.

There have been only 740 Covid-19 deaths in Nevada this year. Last year there were over 18,000 people who died in Clark County alone. It doesn't seem like the Covid numbers are inflated.
