When Trump hosted the first cabinet meeting since the virus outbreak, the White House said: “If you test 14 million people, you will find more cases. Many of them are not very serious, but they are still counted as cases. In fact, when it comes to confirmed cases, we are larger than most countries in the world. I do n’t think it ’s a bad thing to have so many cases. In a sense, I think of it as a good thing. Prove that our testing is better. If we only test 1 million people instead of 14 million, our confirmed cases will be much less. I see this as a medal of honor, a huge contribution to testing, sure The huge contribution of professionals. “

The BBC quoted a University of Oxford data showing that although the United States is the country with the largest number of tests in the world, it is not the world’s first in terms of detection per capita.

The data shows that the rate of testing per 1,000 people in the United States is lower than that of countries such as Iceland, New Zealand, Russia and Canada, ranking 16th in the world.

At present, there are at least 1,524,156 new coronavirus infections in the United States, including 91,661 deaths. Some experts said that the actual data may be higher than the current statistics.
