US coronavirus testing is a debacle. Here's how to fix it 1


Why is coronavirus testing in the US still a debacle? CNN spoke to more than 20 testing experts including state health officials, testing labs, test suppliers, hospitals and industry insiders, and the overwhelming consensus is that a federal plan is needed to help fix it. CNN's Drew Griffin reports.

      Jared Kushner deliberately killed Americans by botching the testing to make Blue states and Democrats look bad

    • Network Search there is no evidence at all to prove your claim but there is on Democrat governs sending people into nursing home which directly caused thousands of deaths

      My sister and I and 8 neighbors have this virus. Mild headache, slight fever, tiredness and runny nose. Most of the neighbors have no symptoms. I don`t feel great and sleep more, that`s it.

      Your the idiot that I was warned about !

    • @Network Search yo are a liar. As bad as CNN. Remember the butcher of NY? Cuomo murdered people. Newsome murdered people where is your outrage? Where is the outrage from his brother Chris?

  3. If you line Trump’s pocket for testing, believe me, there wouldn’t be an issue with testing.

  4. Trump: ‘’We are lower than the world’’

    Jonathan … ‘’lower than the world?” 😂😂😂

      @Joe Blow How bad are your symptoms?

    • @Love is the most powerful force in the Universe
      Absolutely awful never felt worse bolted out of the bedroom because of the hallucination.
      The one thing that works great, Vicodin.
      If you get sick tell your doctor to prescribe you Vicodin if he/ she refuses dump them key their car, that’s what I would do. It’s all about headaches aches and pains and pain meds fixes that so well.
      I’m really shocked I’ve heard nothing about it. because of the idiots who cannot control themselves these drugs are blackballed.
      Seriously, this would have been awful without them. I’m still quite sick but I just ate a couple an hour ago and I feel just fine. Started feeling sick 10 days ago

    • @Joe Blow hope all works out for you and your wife stays healthy.

    • @Vital Signs
      Thank you very much!

    *FACT:* _Trump insisted that the last five questions of his dementia test were “very hard.”_

  9. No other government is amazed about what the US is doing.

      I’m from the US, but I’m teaching in South Korea. (I moved here before the pandemic.) Even my 7 year old students know that the US isn’t doing a good job. One boy walked in, with a US flag on his shirt, one day. I tried to explain to him what it was, by saying USA (미국) in Korean, and drawing a flag on the board. Immediately another boy chimed in, “미국 is corona!” I couldnt really disagree. 🤦‍♀️

    Electing Trump as president has been a debacle, too.

    Normally, the U.S should be the country leading the way for other small countries but it is astonishing to see how the GIANT still falling to his knew against this virus 🤦‍♂️

      @Ray Bechtel Every single nation that actually gives a crap about it’s citizens has beaten this virus. I live 20 min from the U.S. border and we have wiped it out. Just across that border they are still having 1000 cases a day and a death toll in the hundreds. Why did we get it right? We are not in some far away distant land. It’s a 20 minute drive. I know where we got it right and how we defeated it. We all knew the U.S.A would be screwed once this virus hit. Now to be fair, it did not matter if Trump was pres or not.

    • Well, hopefully all the republican senators will be looking for new jobs in November.

    If all fifty states can successfully combine in this, doesn’t it make the federal government redundant?

      It would make life easier if they were on board but they ain’t. We still need a national defence but Deputy Dawg would do a better job then the current administration

      Good thought.

    • America hasn’t had a federal government since 2016, so they should be used to the States doing everything by now.

    Trump’s mantra: My authority is total but I don’t take responsibility at all.

    • My new mantra is, ‘I did not have sexual relations on that island’….

    • @Joe Biden Clinton- “I did”

    • @Joe Biden You know who else’s name was on that flight manifest? Yup, it was your boy trump, getting in on that young stuff. If you guys don’t think all the leadership from both parties aren’t playing golf together on the weekends you’re fools. They’ve trained you to hate your neighbors so that you won’t point your anger upwards at them. Its not left or right, its top to bottom.

    We are the Boss.

    2.1million signatures petitioned Mitch McConnell to put the Heros Act on the floor and pass it. He is the leader of the Senate, he decides what they vote on. This was months ago! Over 600 organizations came together and compiled 2.1million signed petition demanding for him to put the Heros act on the floor. And that is just the tip of the ice berg.
    Stimulus relief before the cares act originated from a national petition demanding UBI 1.6 million petitioned for that along with another petition with the same demand reaching 400k. That petition sparked the Cares Act but it was the cheese in the trap, to keep pressure down publicly we thought we got relief, 1200 one time. While 43000 millionaires each recieved over a million from that bill.

    Congress has had 3 Bill’s that actually meet the demands of millions of people calling for UBI during this pandemic. All of which have been silenced by a majority of congress/media as they created this hyper focus on Heals act and Heros act debate.

    Automatic Boost to Communities Act
    Senate bill purposed, committee supported, denied floor vote by Senate leader

    Monthly Economic Crisis Support Act
    Senate bill purposed, committee supported, denied floor vote by Senate Leader

    Emergency money for people act
    House bill purposed, committee supported, denied floor vote by speaker of the house.

    Whitehousegov. Petition to pass the Emergency Money for People Act surpassed its signatures goal and has still been silenced in the middle of this hyper focus the congress has created between Heals Act and Heros Act. No media wants to touch on what the people really want just the debate of what they want us to focus on.

    Point being the Civil servants are not listening to us (the boss) we have made our statement very clear to them and fortunate for us some congress listened creating the three Bill’s for monthly payments. However the majority of congress is donor dollar blind to support the interest of the public’s wishes.
    We are at a time in our history where the political corruption by wealthy donors is creating wealth extraction and supporting poverty exploitation and to overcome this we need mass organized pressure.
    Peoples stimulus movement had over 300k people visiting congresses homes july 11th and july 25th. Movements like that and more signatures on the current petitions will ever so create more pressure.

    Come together, don’t be divided on this focus between GOP and Democrat, take unified action to Congress as a whole.
    Sign the petitions like the rest of us.

    They are the civil servants, it’s time to remind them were the boss.

    As long as people don’t take it seriously and wear mask. We will never get out of this mess

  20. The governors-led action is a last ditch effort, boys and girls.

    If that doesn’t work, OR if Trump sticks a monkey wrench into it, we are lost.

    No doom and gloom, boys and girls. Look at the data.
