The white house has supported trump after his words about the harmlessness of coronavirus

The white house has defended President Donald trump that 99% of the cases COVID-19 "completely harmless".

"It was a factual statement based on the science and showing that the mortality rate in our country is very low... the President mentioned the fact that the vast majority of Americans that get the coronavirus will survive this," he told reporters at a briefing a press-the Secretary of the tramp Kaylee Makineni.

She demonstrated a graph which implies that US deaths from coronavirus is lower than in France, UK and Italy. However, the graph contradicts the words of trump: it shows that the mortality rate in the U.S. is slightly less than 5% of the number of detected cases of coronavirus.

According to the Johns Hopkins University, in the United States registered almost 2.9 million cases of coronavirus, more than 130 thousand people died.
