Washington. So far, 47 lakh 19 thousand 812 people have been infected with coronavirus in the world. 18 lakh 11 thousand 611 have been cured. At the same time, the figure of deaths has increased to 3 lakh 13 thousand 215. US President Donald Trump tweeted on Saturday – Why does he pay such a small amount to the WHO, the United Nations and worst of all, the World Trade Organization, despite China's population being more than us. Here they are reportedly considered developing countries. They are given more facilities than the US or any other. Before this epidemic spread from China, our economy was leaving everyone behind. We were better than any country. We will be there once again and be quick.
….. are therefore given massive advantages over the United States, and everyone else? Prior to the Plague floating in from China, our Economy was blowing everybody away, the best of any country, EVER. We will be there again, and soon!
