US President Donald Trump has said that India does not give a “straight count” on the Covid-19 deaths.
Trump shot back, “When you talk about numbers you know how many people died in China? You know how many people died in Russia? You don’t know how many people died in India. They don’t give you a straight count.”
Biden said that the 200,000 people who died of the coronavirus in the US were 20 per cent of the global death toll of 1 million while the US population is only 4 per cent of the world.
The mention of India and the two other countries brought a passing reference to foreign countries.
Earlier in his news conferences, Trump has mentioned India’s record of conducting Covid-19 tests as the second-best in the world, only next to the US.
