Trump: Forecasts Of A Doubling Of The Number Of Deaths From COVID-19 In The US Do Not Take Into Account The Measures Taken
Earlier it was reported that the US authorities do not exclude in the coming weeks, an increase in the daily number of deaths due to coronavirus in two times, to about 3 thousand.
Donald Trump believes that forecasts of a doubling of the number of deaths in the US due to the disease caused by the coronavirus (COVID-19) do not take into account the measures taken by the country's authorities to contain the spread of infection.
"This report does not [take into account measures to] minimize [the impact of the coronavirus]. But we do a lot about containment," Trump said Tuesday in a conversation with reporters on the South Lawn of the White House before flying to Arizona.
On Monday, The New York Times, citing documents of the US administration that came to its disposal, reported that the US authorities do not rule out in the coming weeks, an increase in the daily number of deaths due to coronavirus by two times, to about 3 thousand. Later, Deputy White House Press Secretary Judd Deere denied the newspaper's data, pointing out that they "do not appear in the modeling and analysis of the target group."
