Trump argues 3.4% death rate from coronavirus is ‘false,’ citing a ‘hunch’ in claiming it’s far lower

He really is just the most dangerous person in the world right now. He only cares about himself and he thinks that his lies will keep the stock market afloat which will give him an easy 2nd term (and maybe more than two!)

President Donald Trump on Wednesday night disputed the latest official death rate of 3.4% from the novel coronavirus, telling the Fox New host Sean Hannity that his “hunch” was that the true number was “a fraction of 1%.”

“Well, I think the 3.4% is really a false number,” Trump said. “Now, this is just my hunch, but based on a lot of conversations with a lot of people who do this, because a lot of people will have this and it’s very mild. They’ll get better very rapidly. They don’t even see a doctor.”

The 3.4% figure, cited this week by the World Health Organization, was reached using the latest number of confirmed COVID-19 cases and deaths. It was an increase from 2% previously and is likely to change further.
