A few days before the presidential election, Donald Trump was talking about head and neck at an event. He accuses doctors of making more money from a corona death. Competitor Biden is against it.

US President Donald Trump made allegations against doctors in the latest outbreak of the election campaign. “Our doctors get more money when someone dies from Covid,” the Republican said Friday (local time) at an event in the state of Michigan, indirectly implying they have an interest in the deportation of corona deaths.
However, experts pointed out that this claim is incorrect. Trump downplayed the health crisis for months, telling his supporters repeatedly in recent weeks that the country was “turning the corner” in the corona crisis.
In Minnesota, challenger Joe Biden says Trump “gave up” the virus. The incumbent operator must not attack medical personnel treating the victims of the pandemic. “Unlike Donald Trump, we will not surrender to this virus,” said the Democrat. He warned of a “dark winter” given the increasing number of new infections.
To date, the pandemic has killed more than 229,000 people in the United States and destroyed millions of jobs. In the midst of the health crisis, Americans will elect their president on Tuesday.
Biden leads a nationwide poll by Reuters news agency and the Ipsos Institute with 52 percent, while Trump comes with 42 percent. However, in many electoral states, such as Florida and Texas, the result is close.
