US President Donald Trump has admitted that he makes mistakes in assessing some indicators of the coronavirus pandemic. This statement came after the head of state was shown fragments of the most dubious of his remarks.
I believe that everyone makes mistakes,” the head of state said in an interview with Fox News.
Thus, during the interview, it was found that the President of the United States uses the phrase “mortality” when discussing the level of lethality of the disease. In particular, Trump claimed that this indicator in the US is one of the lowest in the world.
According to Johns Hopkins University, the mortality rate of COVID-19 in the US, which is ranked 7th in the list, is lower than in the UK, Mexico, Iran, Indonesia, Egypt, and Iraq, but higher than in other countries.
It is known that the White House uses statistics from the European center for disease prevention and control, according to which the mortality rate in the United States is lower than in Italy and France, but higher than in Brazil and South Korea. It is noteworthy that the White House charts that brought Trump during the interview did not include Russia and several other states.
According to the latest data, more than 3.73 million cases of coronavirus infection were detected in the United States, 140,255 people died, and 1,122,720 patients recovered.
