President Donald Trump has said it’s “foolish” to test people for the Covid-19.
During a campaign rally in Lumberton, North Carolina, Trump said: “You know why we have cases? It’s because we test so much. In a lot of ways, it’s good, and in a lot of ways it’s foolish.”
“If we tested half, cases would be half,” he added.
More than 83,000 people tested positive for the coronavirus in the U.S. on Friday, bringing the total number to 8.5 million.
“That’s all I hear about now. Turn on television. Covid, Covid, Covid, Covid, Covid, Covid. By the way, on November 4th, you won’t hear about it anymore,” Trump said.
