The US has the highest number of confirmed Coronavirus cases
Due to this number, he questions other countries’ statistics that they are not able to tell what China is testing or not testing. While the US has increased its testing capacity in recent days the process has been flawed and incoherent, and the country still lags behind leaders such as South Korea in terms of the number of tests administered per-capita.
On Twitter, Trump tweet that he spoke to the Chinese president Xi Jinping, with whom he has never had good relations, by telephone and had what he described on Twitter as a “very good conversation”. The two leaders discussed the Coronavirus in “great detail”, adding that: “China has been through much & has developed a strong understanding of the Virus. We are working closely together. Much respect!”
This morning, America has surpassed 1,000 death tools and revealed that 3.3 million people filed for unemployment. Because of this tragedy, the president has been widely condemned for failing to act fast enough, misjudging the public mood and seeking to blame others rather than taking personal responsibility. But Trump makes a statement that it’s nobody’s fault. He thought that we got very lucky when we made a decision not to allow people in from China on a very early date. He also adds some people don’t want to accept it, but this was a great decision made by the country or the numbers that you’re talking about, they’d be far greater, far bigger.
Not only that, but this tragedy can also disappear and will have victory over the hidden enemy and come back strong. Vice-president Mike Pence and Deborah Birx, response coordinator for the White House Coronavirus Task Force, also sought to calm fears about a shortage of ventilators, despite media reports to the contrary. Birx said of New York: “To wake up this morning and look at people talking about creating DNR situations, Do-Not-Resuscitate situations for patients – there is no situation in the United States right now that warrants that kind of discussion.”
