Trump says US COVID cases surge due to testing

United States President Donald Trump claimed on Friday that the country's "best testing" stands behind a high number of coronavirus infections registered nationwide.

"More Testing equals more Cases. We have best testing. Deaths WAY DOWN. Hospitals have great additional capacity! Doing much better than Europe. Therapeutics working!" the president tweeted.

Earlier today, the Johns Hopkins University's data showed that a record high of 88,521 people tested positive for the virus in the past 24 hours, raising the nation's total to 8,944,934. The death toll jumped by 971 on a daily basis to 228,656.
