Washington: US President Donald Trump has said that the United States is the leading nation in the world with most coronavirus tests and India is in the second position.
So far, more than 140,000 people have died due to Covid-19 in the US and 3.8 million have tested positive.
On Tuesday at the White House news conference, Trump said “As one family, we mourn every precious life that's been lost. I pledge in their honour that we will develop a vaccine and we will defeat the virus. We're doing very well with vaccine development and therapeutic development,.
Trump also assured that coronavirus vaccines will be coming a lot sooner than expected.
The "China virus", Trump said, is a vicious and dangerous illness.
The US president added “It's a nasty, horrible disease that should've never been allowed to escape China, but it did. It infected the world, and the world is suffering. But we're going to get it taken care of, and we're helping lots of other countries,”.
