The medical group rejects Trump’s claim that doctors are inflating the COVID-19 obituary for money

The American Medical Association, the largest group of doctors and medical students in the United States, has criticized Trump’s proposal during a rally in Michigan Friday night that doctors increase the number of coronavirus deaths in the country in order to get more money.

“Our doctors get more money when someone dies of COVID. You know that right? I mean, our doctors are very smart people. So you say, “I’m sorry, but everyone is dying of COVID,” Trump said without giving any evidence.

The medical organization declined the president’s comments, calling them “malicious, outrageous, and utterly misdirected charges”.

“Rather than attacking us and bringing unfounded charges against doctors, our leaders should follow science and demand compliance with public health steps we know about – wear a mask, wash hands, and practice physical distancing,” the AMA said in a Statement on Friday.
