    Why do you think their were delays? The affected were in blue states for the most part.

    • Bingo they simply don’t care if it’s not a red state most of time they’ll just deflect and blame them for not being ready

    • California and Washington State got some kits today.700,000 more also went out.

  2. Feeling great again? It’s ridiculous

  3. Trump: “One day this Coronavirus will dissappear. Like a miracle, it’s going to just dissappear. I use to suffer from debilitating bone spurs. I’m talking tremendous bone spurs. And then one day, POOF….those bone spurs just disappeared.  Poof…..no more bone spurs. Bye bye bone spurs.”

    • I LIVE IN SEATTLE WASHINGTON AND LET ME TELL YOU THIS EPIDEMIC IS REAL. TRUMP’S IN ACTION AMOUNTS TO CRIMINAL NEGLIGENCE
      PEOPLE WILL NEEDLESSLY DIE BECAUSE OF HIS MISINFORMATION. SAYING PEOPLE MIGHT GO TO WORK WITH THE VIRUS
      SAYING IT’S LIKE THE FLU.
      HE’S TRYING TO WISH IT AWAY THEY ARE NOT TESTING ALL THE PEOPLE THAT HAVE DIED IN OUR STATE ONE WOMAN REQUESTED HER MOM BE TESTED WHO DIED AT THE KIRKLAND FACILITY AND SO FAR THEY HAVE LISTED HER DEATH AS NATURAL CAUSES. HOW MANY OTHERS THERE BEEN WE DON’T KNOW. BUT THERE ARE DEFINITELY MANY.
      PEOPLE NEED TO VOTE LIKE THEIR LIFE DEPENDS ON IT I VOTED TODAY FOR BERNIE SANDERS I BELIEVE HE’LL CRUSH TRUMP WHEN THE TRUTH OF THIS EPIDEMIC COMES OUT BY NOVEMBER HE WILL ABSOLUTELY CRUSH DONALD TRUMP
      MEANWHILE GOD BLESS AND PROTECT ALL OF US

    • People are going to die. It’s a disgrace.

  4. Was anyone from the trump clown circus involved? Cause that there would be your answer…..

    Unbelievable…and totally unexceptable for America to not have these needed test kits… ANOTHER MAJOR FAAAAAAIL BY THE CLOWN TRUMP ADMINISTRATION !

      Buy our kits. in korea, already we tested 140,000 people. accuracy of our testkit is 95% and we have an extra kit

      hm also, if u met the patient. test is free in korea. but u didn’t. u just pay 160,000won(135 usd). because we pay the tax to national healthcare.

    *Two words: Traitor Trump.*

    • CDC sent out kits to California and WS. 700,000 plus . They said 4 million out by next week. They explain the kits and the difference between other outside Countries test. These people are omiting facts.

    Stupid question. The leader and management of the CDC is being directed or given no direction by the Administration. Duh. Second or third rate administrators in CDC because Trump did not fill hundreds of jobs, cut program funding, and devastated scientific staffing.

  8. Because if people aren’t tested the number of cases is artificially kept low… which this administration thinks makes them look good.

  9. Most unfit president, been sending us backwards since his inauguration. Firing scientists, pandemic team, cutting regulation on environmental protections, trying to make oil our only energy source, bashing CLEAN renewable energy, female rights on the line again, RACISM back in action. Trash administration. Worst in our history

  10. What’s so hard to understand, your 1% owners need to make more money. Who cares about a few extra human livestock dying. It’s ll about money, did you sell your stock yet; back to your owners, at pennies on the dollar!

  11. I have a hunch on how they f***ed it up, Trump told them they could save money on a home kit!!

  12. should of 🗳 for Bernie… 🙁

  13. I’m sure the answer from the trump administration is Obama 😂

  14. Possibly someone of the orange idiot’s aides is friendly with the company that wanted to make the kits?

  15. t’rump’s reality: “We have this under control and one million tests will be ready.”
    Reality: He has no idea what to do and we have 75,000 tests ready.
    Missed it be thiiiiis much. 🤏
    🤣🤣🤣

    • Over 700,000 plus. Closer than not. These people on this news station are not telling the truth
      .

    • @chris san Including the old type test kits which have bad (improper type, thus incorrect test results) reagents. Those are useless.

    Sad when our news fails to get real answers from experts versus people who love to hear themselves talk. It’s not easy to perform and there are standards. Shortcuts being made will be problematic long term. Good luck!

    US is the richest country in the world and they couldn’t produce enough testing kits? Meanwhile, in South Korea, they’re testing by the hundreds just by driving through?

    I wouldn’t be surprise if US’s infected case is much much higher than what is being reported right now. I am talking about 10x higher.

  18. Why the problem with getting test kits in abundance and quickly? Trump cut funding for the CDC and he put loyalists in charge instead of experts, add that to Trump’s obsession with his personal political image and you have the recipe for problems and confusion…there is no mystery. Of course, as we’ve seen time and time again, Trump finds someone or something to scapegoat…in this case it was a lie about what Obama did that he claims slowed things down.

    It takes time for Trump to find a way to make money of this outbreak, give him a break! From this office he holds. VOTE
