Trump: 'China Virus' mortality lowest in US

United States President Donald Trump said on Monday that the US has the lowest global mortality rate from the coronavirus, which he calls the "China Virus."

Writing in a series of tweets, Trump said deaths from COVID-19 are down 39% in the US, but failed to specify in what timeframe. However, the president added: "Deaths in the U.S. are way down, a tenfold decrease since the Pandemic height (and, our Economy is coming back strong!)."

Trump went on to praise the use of hydroxychloroquine, which has been debunked by the World Health Organization (WHO) as a suitable therapeutic for COVID-19. He cited a study by Henry Ford Health System which said "13% of those treated with hydroxychloroquine alone died compared to 26.4% not treated with hydroxychloroquine."
