              Coronavirus Testing       - May 02, 2020


Speaking about Coronavirus testing, on Tuesday, April 28th at a White House briefing, Donald Trump said the following (quote):

“We are way ahead on testing. We are the best in the world on testing. We’ve tested much more than anybody else, times two — or every country combined. We’ve tested more than every country combined.”

That is a lie!

As of the end of April 28, the United States has conducted 5.9 million tests. 

The next five countries — Russia, Germany, Italy, Spain and United Arab Emirates — had conducted 10 million tests as of that date. 

The total for all non-U. S. countries is about 25 million tests.

Politicians Lie…... The 8:01 keeps track.
