US President Donald Trump tweeted, “China has just announced a doubling in the number of their deaths from Invisible Enemy (coronavirus). It is far higher than that and far higher than the US, not even close!”
The US has so far reported more than 37,000 deaths from coronavirus. Earlier, Trump said the US is investigating whether coronavirus came from a Chinese lab.
China raised its own death toll to 4,636 on Friday after adding another 1,290 fatalities for the city of Wuhan, where the respiratory disease first emerged late last year.
