Joe Biden makes another gaffe by saying 200 MILLION Americans - or two thirds of the US population - have died of COVID-19 instead of almost 200,000

Joe Biden made another gaffe on Sunday when he declared an estimated 200 million Americans had died from COVID-19 - but the death toll is actually just under 200,000.

The Democratic presidential nominee made the remark during a campaign event at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

With just 44 days until the embattled election, both Biden and President Trump have revved up their campaigning to secure votes before Americans go to the polls.

While discussing the devastation the COVID-19 pandemic has leveled against the United States and Trump, Biden accidentally claimed that nearly two-thirds of the country had died.

'If Donald Trump has his way, the complications from COVID-19, which are well beyond what they should be - it's estimated that 200 million people have died -- probably by the time I finish this talk,' said Biden.

Although the number of COVID-19 deaths are staggering in the United States -even more so when compared to some other countries - 200 miillion Americans have not died of the virus.
