Trump accuses doctors of faking coronavirus death count for money

Washington, Oct 25: US President Donald Trump attacked US doctors in a speech Saturday night, accusing them of fabricating the coronavirus death toll for money.

He gave the example of someone with a terminal illness getting COVID-19, and their deaths being written off as due to the virus.

“We report them, and doctors get more money, and hospitals get more money,” he said.

“Some countries, they report differently. If somebody is sick with a heart problem, and they die of COVID-19, they say they die of a heart problem.”

“This country,” he continued, “and their reporting systems are really not doing it right.,” in naming COVID-19 as the cause of death, and not the terminal illness.

Added Trump, “We’re gonna start looking at things, because they have things a little bit backwards.”
