Biden Says 200 Million People Have Died from Coronavirus
Joe Biden made another major gaffe on Sunday when he said an estimated 200 million people have already died from COVID-19.
The actual number of casualties in the United States is closer to 200,000.
"If Donald Trump has his way, the complications from COVID-19, which are well beyond what they should be -- it's estimated that 200 million people have died -- probably by the time I finish this talk," the 2020 Democratic presidential candidate said during a campaign speech.
The U.S. population is over 320 million people, which means if Biden's math is correct, almost two-thirds of Americans would have died from the disease by now.
Biden made a similar drastically inaccurate comment concerning coronavirus and fatality numbers in June.
During a campaign speech in Pennsylvania, Biden claimed 120 million people had died due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“People don’t have a job, people don’t know where to go, they don’t know what to do,” the former vice president said. “Now we have over 120 million dead from COVID.”
After that remark, many questioned Biden's mental health and even wondered if he was fit to occupy the White House.
