Trump disputes WHO’s global death rate for COVID-19, put out own estimate

President Trump dismissed the death rate of the coronavirus as reported by the WHO. ’I think the 3.4 percent is really a false number’, Trump said in a phone interview Wednesday. He said he believed so ’based on a lot of conversations with a lot of people’. Trump put the estimate at ’way under 1 percent’.

I mean he’s not wrong, if there are mild cases or people infected that believe their illness is something other than Corona then those numbers don’t get reported and it would make a higher than actual fatality rate. It’s just sad to see the MSM smearing Trump for the billionth time over something that’s stupid.

The death rate reports are all over the map (1-3%). And low symptomatic cases likely get missed. So thinking 3% is high isn't unreasonable. But that doesn't mean we should stop trying to contain it.

I generally like Trump. That said, of course he's being dishonest. The coronavirus can make him look bad if people start blaming him for it.

A man not known for an analytical mind, or a belief in science, and anything but the most casual, on and off, mostly off relationship with truth, who is a copper tone tanned narcissist that believes in such a thing as "alternative facts." Once again makes it clear to everyone but those with their heads stuck up some dark place, that he will do or say anything, regardless of harm to the country, or its legality if it will serve to retain or enriched his personal political and financial fortunes. Dump the corrupt Trump 2020 and turn the Senate Blue too. Say Bye Bye to Moscow Mitch, aka Mr. Turtle.

A man with no professional health care training, who looks like he Doesnt do much to keep himself healthy disputing health EXPERTS. The joke is on the rest of the world who would normally.be looking at the US for some global leadership. Well, forget that, because the idiot in chief has some conspiracy ideas. Why not just leave the world to have its own answers and the idiot can go and play more golf at the taxpayer's expense. If I had a vote, It’d be for a some one more concerned and competent at doing the job they were elected to carry for... But I don't it's technically nothing to do with me as I live in the uk, but please elect some that doesn't look orange...

3.4 is the number of deaths devided by cases. In the USA we have 11 deaths and 163 cases. That's 6.7% South Korea is much better at testing and their rate yesterday was 0.6% We won't know the actual figure until the epidemic is over.

Trump doesn't want to crash the economy but he shouldn't downplay a deadly and constantly mutating bioweapon. This needs to be taken very seriously. The left isn't helping that said.

While I will say it is possible Chinas are likely off, I don’t think he can just estimate by talking to people

huh. same reasoning behind the "rape" epidemic. people don't report it because it was mistaken for a regular flu. so the infection rates could be under estimated but the kill rate over estimated. well, I reckon personally we need to romove China's data from the pool entirely. they've proven to be deceitful through their entire winter season. can't trust their numbers at all.
