Biden claims Trump 'continues to lie' about coronavirus.

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden slammed Donald Trump for his response to the coronavirus pandemic and failure to protect Americans from its economic fallout.

Infections reached a single-day high in several states on Friday, with total confirmed cases reaching nearly 70,000 – the highest point since July – amid a third “surge” of infections eight months into the public health crisis.

During a speech in Durham, North Carolina, on Sunday, the former vice president took issue with the president’s claim at a campaign rally in Wisconsin on Saturday that the US had “turned the corner".

"As my grandfather would say, 'This guy's gone around the bend if he thinks we've turned the corner,'" Adding. "Things are getting worse, and he continues to lie to us about circumstances." Mr Biden said from the parking lot of Riverside High School in Durham, one of his campaign’s socially distant “drive-thru” rallies, with supporters blaring their horns in parking lots.

Biden and Trump were courting early voters on Sunday in the competitive states of North Carolina and Nevada, as the final presidential debate looms later this week.
