Without tests, there would be no corona

US President Donald Trump has once again demonstrated his idiosyncratic approach to the corona virus

If we didn’t test, we wouldn’t have any cases, “Trump said in an interview on Fox News on Thursday evening (local time). The United States has so far tested around 30 million people for the virus, more than any other country in the world. Trumps According to an assessment, this is due to the high number of detected infections in the USA.

Most experts reject Trump’s statement that the increase in infections is primarily due to an increase in tests. They are primarily responsible for Trump’s easing of corona restrictions in the states.

According to data from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, the United States has recently recorded around 35,000 new infections a day – almost as many as at the peak of the crisis in April. After that, the number had decreased before rocketing again that month. Around half of the U.S. is now experiencing an increase in cases.

Trump still advocates a quick reopening of the economy. He also wants to return to normal as quickly as possible, also with a view to the November election. According to him, the corona virus is gradually disappearing from the United States. The data doesn’t support that. The Republican governor of Texas, Greg Abbott, announced on Thursday that steps to reopen the state would be suspended due to the dramatically increasing number of cases.
