VIDEO : WHO’s death rate from coronavirus is false number – Trump says
American President Donald Trump speaks on WHO’s assessment of the Global death rate for Coronavirus.
In a live call on tv with Fox news he calls it a fake number saying he doesn’t agree with it.
Stating that it’s just his hunch, he said :
“based on a lot of conversations with alot of people that do this,
because a lot of people will have this, and it’s very mild – they will get better very rapidly, they don’t see a doctor, they don’t even call a doctor.”
“You never hear about those people, so you can’t put them down in the category of the overall population,
in terms of this corona flu and or virus.
So you just can’t do that.”
You know, all of a sudden it seems like 3 or 4%, which is a very high number, as opposed to a fraction of 1%,”
perhaps referring to the typical death rate for influenza, which is well below 1%.
Listen to his full words below :
Trump to Hannity on WHO saying coronavirus death rate is 3.4%: "I think the 3.4% number is really a false number. Now this is just my hunch, but based on a lot of conversations … personally, I'd say the number is way under 1%."
