Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden was pelted with more criticism on Sunday after he wrongly announced the number of American fatalities from the coronavirus to be 200 million.
The number of U.S. deaths is around 200,000 — the highest recorded in the world.
“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,” Biden said at a campaign speech.
This is the nth time Biden’s campaign gaffes have made the headlines.
In June, Biden claimed 120 million people had died as a result of COVID-19, during a campaign stop in Pennsylvania.
“People don’t have a job, people don’t know where to go, they don’t know what to do,” he said. “Now we have over 120 million dead from COVID.”
The former vice president’s his mental facilities are being questioned because of these slip ups. Biden detractors are even asking if he is fit to serve as commander-in-chief if he were to win in the November elections.
