Claims by President Trump that the U.S. leads the world in testing for coronavirus are not true, as a chart prepared by the BBC illustrates. South Korea and Italy have approached a rate of testing 800 out of every 100,000 people in the the country. The U.S. by comparison has tested 300 per 100,000. Epidemiologists say the pandemic can't be controlled without adequate testing. World Health Organization Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said, "We cannot stop this pandemic if we do not know who is infected."
