The novel coronavirus is falsely claimed by

Facebook that the death rate of the new coronavirus is lower than that of the common flu. Trump has deleted a post. Earlier today, trump wrote on Facebook and Twitter: the United States has learned to endure the coming flu season, just as we are learning to tolerate the & quot; covid-19. Trump mistakenly asserts that covid-19 & quot; is much less lethal in most people! &Facebook confirmed to CNN that the post was deleted for violating its rules on covid-19 error messages. < / P > < p > as CNN reporter donie O & 39; Sullivan put it on twitter, Facebook has promised to delete covid-19 error messages that could & quot; cause imminent physical harm. This includes false statements about the location and severity of the covid-19 outbreak. We do not know novel coronavirus’s exact mortality rate, but there is a lot of evidence that it is more lethal than influenza, even for low risk populations, its lethality is almost certainly not " far lower than that of influenza &quot. Trump also claims that sometimes more than 100000 people die of flu each year, while the real number is that in recent years, the death toll in the United States has ranged from 24000 to 62000. Since March, covid-19 has killed more than 210000 Americans. < / P > < p > trump tweeted & quot; the flu season is coming! Every year, a lot of people, sometimes more than 100000, die of the flu despite the vaccine. Are we going to close our country? No, we’ve learned to live with it, just as we’re learning to live with coweed, far from fatal in most people!!! &The tag at the top of the quote; reads: & quot; this tweet violates the twitter rules about disseminating misleading and potentially harmful information about covid-19 & gt; < / P > < p > trump was diagnosed with covid-19 last week and spent the weekend at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center before leaving hospital yesterday. When he announced his departure, he played down the seriousness of the virus. More generally, a recent study suggests that trump is the main driver of what misinformation experts call covid-19 & quot; infometric & quot; — a series of false claims about the impact of the virus and the effectiveness of vaccines, masks, social alienation and other measures.
