*Donald Trump, USA President
Mr. Donald John Trump, the President of the United States of America (USA) has said that the USA has a high record of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic infections because his country has an equally high testing rate. Trump who basically communicates his actions through Twitter tweeted this earlier today where he also noted that other countries have fewer cases because their testing capacities were minimal.
He tweeted, “The only reason the US has reported one million cases of coronavirus is that our testing is so much better than any other countries in the World. Other countries are way behind us in testing and therefore show far fewer cases. Yet the media does nothing but complain. No matter how good a job is done, the same as with the ventilators, they will never say we are doing a great job, they will only viciously gripe,” Trump said.
The World Health Organisation said the USA has so far recorded about a million confirmed cases of COVID-19 with over 50,000 deaths. Meanwhile, Trump called his counterpart in Nigeria recently promising to send ventilators to support the country in its fight against the pandemic. Nigeria has tested a little above 10,000 suspected cases of the virus wherein over 1,500 turned positive. But there have been mass deaths in Kano State northern Nigeria that are suspected to be related to COVID-19.
