Trump Again Lies That Cases Are Up Because Testing Is

The Independent reports:

Donald Trump has once again claimed that the US’s surge in coronavirus cases is simply the result of expanded testing – even as the rate of tests coming back positive rises and the country’s death toll increases.

Mr Trump’s claim that the expansion of testing is the sole reason that the US is counting more cases has been debunked and ridiculed many times.

However, his latest assertion comes as several states see worrying increases not only in cases, but in hospitalisations – and in the proportion of tests coming back positive.
