Sky News host Chris Kenny says the extensive testing and transparent reporting in America will always expose the coronavirus more than in other countries, however for such a prosperous nation its death rate is still too high.
United States President Donald Trump claimed the country has the lowest COVID-19 mortality rate in the world, despite contributing nearly a quarter of virus-related deaths to the global figure.
The nation’s mortality rate sits at 3.8 per cent with a reported 43 deaths per 100,000 people.
“To some degree, of course, Trump is right,” Mr Kenny said.
“But while many countries are faring worse per capita, the US is still ranked about tenth for deaths per million people, at this stage”.
