US President Donald Trump (Donald Trump) and his son Donald Trump (Donald Trump Jr.) fundamentally underestimated the number of new coronavirus-related deaths in the United States, and the election has passed a few days, across the country There have been COVID-19 cases.
“The reason why I check the CDC data is because I keep hearing about new infections, but I think, why don’t they talk about death? Because this number is almost non-existent,” Trump Jr. said on Fox News. Ingraham Point Thursday night. “If you look at my Instagram, it has almost nothing. We are surpassing Europe in a positive way. We have mastered it.”
Since the pandemic was declared, the country has reported more than 90,000 coronavirus cases in one day and approximately 1,000 COVID-19 deaths.
Although doctors have done better in treating COVID-19, which means that only a small percentage of hospitalized patients will eventually die, but the death toll has been slowly increasing and is expected to climb in the coming weeks. It is reported that as severely ill patients are admitted and die, an increase in deaths is usually reported a few weeks after the increase in deaths.
Early on Friday morning, the president responded to his son’s statement, writing on Twitter: “More tests equal more cases” and “decrease in deaths.”
The language is a continuation of the coronavirus that the president said during his recent election campaign, and he was dubbed a “fake news media conspiracy theory” a few days before the election. The increase in cases cannot be attributed to more inspections because the incidence of cases is much higher and hospitalization continues to increase. The death toll in the United States has exceeded 228,000, and the virus is rapidly increasing in almost every state. Field hospitals in states such as Wisconsin and Texas are opening in response to the rise in hospitalizations related to COVID-19.
The group of doctors quickly condemned Trump’s allegations this weekend, saying that corrupt hospitals are exaggerating the death toll for profit. The president of the American College of Physicians, Jacqueline Fincher, said in a statement that the president’s statement is “a condemnation of the moral and professionalism of physicians.”
Experts warn that as people spend more time indoors, colder weather across the country may lead to an increase in infections. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said on Thursday that life in the United States may not return to “normal” levels until 2022.
The Trump campaign did not comment on the president and Trump Jr.’s claims.
