U.S. President Donald Trump had a point of contention with the host over the new crown death rate in an interview with Fox News on Sunday,media BGR reported. In Trump’s impression, the United States has one of the lowest death rates in the world. In fact, according to the latest data from Johns Hopkins University, the opposite is true.
Mr. Trump’s interviews with Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace over the weekend included Mr. Wallace’s nervous rebuttal of the president’s recent cognitive test. At the same time, there was another revealing exchange between Trump and the moderators, underscoring the leader’s apparent disconnect with the reality of the new crown and its impact on the United States. Mr. Trump said that while the number of new crown cases in the United States may be terrible, at least the United States has one of the lowest death rates in the world. Of course, the opposite is true.
Here are some of the interviews:
Trump: “I’ve heard we have one of the lowest death rates in the world, perhaps the lowest. (He told White House press secretary Kelly McNerney, do you have any data? I heard that our mortality rate is the lowest. “
McNerney handed him a piece of paper.
Trump. “First, the mortality rate is the lowest…” (Trump to Wallace) You say we have the highest mortality rate in the world, and we have the lowest mortality rate in the world.
In fact, the United States has one of the highest numbers of deaths from the new coronavirus. Nearly 3.9 million cases of coronavirus have been detected in the United States, and more than 140,000 people have died, according to Johns Hopkins University. According to CNN, the following are the new crown mortality rates in the United States.
Trump is clearly looking at data showing something else — the “new coronary pneumonia death rate,” which is calculated by simply dividing the number of new coronary pneumonia deaths by the number of confirmed ones. This indicator does not provide a clear picture of a country’s new crown outbreak.
