(CNN)The White House included ending the coronavirus pandemic on a list of the Trump administration's science and technology accomplishments, despite nearly half a million Americans tested positive for Covid-19 in just the last week.

"Highlights include: ENDING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC," the news release sent to reporters read.

"From the outset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Administration has taken decisive actions to engage scientists and health professionals in academia, industry, and government to understand, treat, and defeat the disease. "

The abysmal week was marked by the two worst days of daily new cases reported since the pandemic began.

More than 83,000 new cases were reported both Friday and Saturday, and the seven-day average of new Covid-19 cases has soared 23% in the past week, according to Johns Hopkins data on Monday.

When asked for comment on including ending the pandemic among the administration's first term accomplishments, office spokeswoman Kristina Baum pointed to the full report.

The internal report that the news release was describing did not say that the Covid-19 pandemic is over.

"Since the start of the pandemic, the Administration has taken several actions to engage scientists in academia, industry, and government to understand and defeat this disease," the report says.
