President Trump claims that his administration has got COVID-19 under control.

COVID-19 cases and death rates are on the rise in the U.S. and have shown no signs of things being under control as opposed to Trump's claims.

U.S President Donald Trump has reiterated many times that the COVID-19 pandemic situation was very much under control in the United States. He has repeated these arguments on multiple occasions.

The United States is currently the world's leader in terms of total positive COVID-19 cases. There have been 5.87 million infected people in the country, with over 180,000 people succumbing to the virus. According to the latest reports, there have been over 1,000 deaths in the country daily. On August 23, the U.S had over 45,0000 new people infected with COVID-19, and the U.S. is the country with the second-highest number of infections that day after India saw over 60,000 new cases.

The COVID-19 pandemic has given rise to a lot of potentially dangerous misinformation. For reliable advice on COVID-19 including symptoms, prevention and available treatment, please refer to the World Health Organisation or your national healthcare authority.
