Trump about coronavirus: If Russia or India have so many tests, like US, you’d be surprised

The President of the United States Donald trump is sure that in large countries like India or Russia, it would be more confirmed cases of coronavirus infection, if they carried out more tests. He stated this during the round table, which took place on July 13. Transcript of the speech of the President has published the press service of the White house.

“We check more than anyone, of course. At the same time, we have the lowest mortality rate or one of the lowest mortality rates in the world. We do a great job. We cope very well with vaccines and are very good with therapeutic remedies. And I think that soon we will have very good information. But we have the best and certainly the most extensive testing program in the world. If you had China, Russia or any of the major countries, how we test, you’ll see figures that will surprise you”, he said.

According to trump, the United States has made 45 million tests ( according to the Center for disease control USA on July 13, in the United States spent 41.7 million tests). “If we did half of that number, we probably would be half [of confirmed cases COVID-19].
