Trump, who is seeking re-election to a second term on November the 3rd, has claimed that the United States was rounding the corner on the COVID-19 crisis, while health officials contradicted his claim.

Iran PressAmerica: Health officials and President Donald Trump have presented different views about the US's health crisis. Trump, who is seeking re-election to a second term on November the 3rd, early this month had claimed that the United States was rounding the corner on the COVID-19 crisis.

Fauci the top US infectious disease expert contradicted the claim the next day, saying the statistics were disturbing.
The number of novel coronavirus cases in the United States topped 7 million on Thursday - more than 20% of the world’s total - as Midwest states reported spikes in COVID-19 infections in September, according to Reuters. 
The latest milestone comes just days after the nation surpassed over 200,000 COVID-19 deaths, the world’s highest death toll from the virus.

Each day, over 700 people die in the United States from COVID-19.
The US confirmed cases are the highest in the world followed by India with 5.7 million cases and Brazil with 4.6 million.
The United States is currently averaging 40,000 new infections per day.
On December 31, 2019, the World Health Organization's (WHO) China office heard the first reports of a previously-unknown virus behind a number of pneumonia cases in Wuhan, a city in eastern China with a population of over 11 million.
