- President Donald Trump has said the US will not have the number of Covid-19 cases it has now if it did not test
- Trump said that the United States has an advanced form of testing unlike many countries around the world
- The US president added that there are countries who always have high cases but do not talk about it like they do
The president of the United States, Donald Trump, on Monday, June 15, spoke about the increasing number of coronavirus cases in America.
Trump while speaking at the White House said that the reason Covid-19 cases are very much high in the US is that the country’s testing is very much advanced.
“Again, our testing is so far advanced. It's so much bigger and better than any other country that we're going to have more cases. We're always going to have more cases,” he said.
President Trump said the consequence of the advanced method is that they will not stop having recorded cases unlike in countries where adequate testing is not done.
He added that if the US stops testing, there would be few cases, but that is not the case because they keep carrying out tests.
“If we stop testing right now, we'd have very few cases, if any, but we do,” he said.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that the US surpassed two million confirmed cases of coronavirus and more than 112,000 people have died from the deadly disease.
The dire landmark was reached on Wednesday, June 10, as the infections are rising in at least 20 states, NRP reports.
It was gathered that Jeffrey Shaman of the Columbia University School of Public Health said that it seems the United States has given up and accepted the disease as a facet of life.
Shaman said: "It seems that we, the US, has given up and accepted this disease as a facet of life. It didn't have to be this way, and it still doesn't going forward."
