Trump wrongly claims US has lowest mortality rate

US President Donald Trump has said in an interview that the US has had the lowest mortality rate during the pandemic, a claim that is not true.

The country's more than 140,000 deaths linked to Covid-19 put it among the top 10 highest mortality rates, according to data collected by the Johns Hopkins University.

Trump made the statements in a contentious interview on Fox News, where he also claimed that his country was "the envy of the world" on testing.


Over the past day, the US recorded almost 64,000 new infections. It now has 3,768,056 confirmed cases, by far the highest number worldwide.
