“Extra’s” Billy Bush spoke with Dr. Jennifer Ashton, who shared her take on the COVID-19 death rates.

Ashton said, “Right now in the U.S., the death count… are only confirmed COVID-19 deaths. It does not take into account people who may have been in the hospital for weeks, were never diagnosed or tested or confirmed to have COVID-19.”
