The President of the United States, Donald Trump, confirmed this Monday that the coronavirus mortality rate in the United States is “almost the lowest in the world”, even though the country ranks ninth in this category and does worse than the countries like Chile, Peru or Brazil.
“Latest news. The Chinese virus mortality rate in the United States is almost the lowest in the world. In addition, deaths in the United States are falling. They are ten times lower than at the height of the pandemic. And our economy is returning with violence!”, Trump said through his official Twitter account.
However, according to official figures, the mortality rate is 401 deaths per million inhabitants, the ninth in the world, over countries such as the Netherlands, Ireland, Chile, Peru or Brazil.
In addition, Trump has assured that schools should “open in the fall,” despite the recovery that the country has seen after lifting restrictions that slowed the first wave of the epidemic.
