Mr. Limbaugh, who was awarded the nation’s highest civilian honor this month, had said the “coronavirus is the common cold” and is being weaponized to “bring down” President Trump.
In a separate tweet containing a link to a news report about the coronavirus, Mr. Savage wrote: “will someone please tell RUSH TO OPEN HIS EYES.”
The World Health Organization reported Wednesday that more than 80,000 cases of the coronavirus have been confirmed in 37 countries since the disease was discovered in December.
More than 2,700 people who have contracted the coronavirus have since died, according to the World Health Organization.
Mr. Trump is slated to speak on the outbreak from the White House later Wednesday.
Mr. Limbaugh, 69, revealed earlier this month that he was recently diagnosed with advanced lung cancer. Mr. Trump awarded him the Presidential Medal of Freedom the following day.
A message sent to “The Rush Limbaugh Show” inquiring about the host’s reaction to Mr. Savage’s remarks was not immediately answered Wednesday afternoon.
