President Donald Trump has expressed his doubts over the official Chinese figures on the number of deaths in their country due to the novel Corona Virus pandemic, claiming that the fatalities were way ahead of the US. Trump’s comments come two days after another 1,300 deaths a to the official count in the city of Wuhan, where the outbreak started. The revision puts China’s overall death toll to more than 4,600.
According to Trump, when highly-developed healthcare systems of the UK, France, Belgium, Italy and Spain had high fatality rates, it was O.33 in China. The president asserted that the actual number was much more than the official Chinese death toll figures, which he said were “unrealistic”. To know politics news click here.
