President Donald Trump has claimed the US coronavirus reporting system is “a little bit backwards” and that hospitals are over-classifying virus deaths.
Speaking at a rally in Wisconsin Trump claimed doctors and hospitals get more money if they report a death as Covid-related – even though there is no evidence of that and experts say the count is likely under-reported.
He said: “If somebody has a really bad heart and they’re close to death, even if they’re not, but they have a very bad heart and they get Covid, they put it down to COVID, other countries put it down to a heart.”
