Trump: US tested 1.79M people for COVID-19

United States President Donald Trump said on Monday 1.79 million Americans were tested for COVID-19 so far.

"If they did the kind of testing, proportionally, that we're doing, they'd have a lot more cases than us," the president noted during a briefing of the Coronavirus Task Force, claiming the number of tests performed to be the reason for leading the world in the number of registered cases.

He noted 125,000 people are tested in the nation daily, adding: "If you do the testing, you have cases."
