2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden had another blunder on Sunday when he said around 200 million people had already died from the coronavirus, even though the U.S. death toll is closer to 200,000.
“If Donald Trump is successful, the complications of COVID-19, which go far beyond what they should be – an estimated 200 million people have died – probably by the time I finish this interview,” said he declared during a campaign. speech.
The U.S. population is estimated at just 328 million people, meaning nearly two-thirds of the nation would have perished from the illness if Biden’s verbal flaw were true.
JOE BIDEN ASSURES VOTERS THAT HE DOESN’T STOP THE CAMPAIGN
This isn’t the first time Biden has mixed up his calculations and made shocking remarks about the coronavirus death rate.
In June, Biden incorrectly claimed that 120 million people had died from COVID-19, during a campaign shutdown in Pennsylvania.
“People don’t have jobs, people don’t know where to go, they don’t know what to do,” he says. “Now we have over 120 million dead from COVID.”
