Trump dismisses leaked virus fatality figures

US President Donald Trump has dismissed reports that the nation’s death toll will double to 3,000 deaths a day by June.

The leaked document shows modelling from the US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention that predicts an additional 200,000 cases of the virus each day, up from about 25,000 from the end of May.

The US has recorded 1.2 million cases of the coronavirus with more than 71,000 fatalities, making up more than a quarter of the global virus death toll.
