Fact check: Trump continues to falsely claim that spike in coronavirus cases is due to heightened testing (CNN)

CNN: Fact check: Trump continues to falsely claim that spike in coronavirus cases is due to heightened testing. “The spike in US coronavirus cases is not being caused by an increase in testing. The number of confirmed new cases is increasing at a faster rate than the number of new tests. And the number of hospitalizations and deaths is also rising, which shows that, contrary to Trump’s repeated claims, the increase in the case numbers isn’t merely being caused by tests capturing mild cases. Taken together, the numbers tell a consistent story: the situation in the US is genuinely getting worse.”
