Biden reportedly hammered Trump during a rally in North Carolina for comments the president has made claiming that the U.S. is turning the corner and getting past the worst of the COVID-19 outbreak.

Most states in the U.S. are seeing rates of COVID-19 infections rise.

"The other night, Trump said in one of his rallies, 'we’ve turned the corner,'" Biden said, according to NBC News. "Turn the corner? Things are getting worse. He continues to lie to us about the circumstances."

Trump has made such remarks on numerous occasions, including just a day ago in Janesville, Wis., where he claimed that a vaccine would be on the market shortly.

"We are rounding the corner," Trump said Saturday. "The vaccines are unbelievable. Except for a little politics. We have unbelievable vaccines coming out real soon. And the therapeutics [treatments] are unbelievable."

In September, the president made similar remarks during a Florida rally in Jacksonville, telling a crowd: “We’re rounding the turn. Under my leadership, prosperity will surge."

The U.S. now has confirmed more than 8 million cases of COVID-19 since the beginning of the year, a number that far exceeds all other countries' reported totals. Nearly 220,000 Americans have died from COVID-19 since the pandemic began, and experts warn that the country faces a new wave of cases as the winter flu season begins.
