#1 Well, this should get a lot of coverage this evening in the news!

#2 I don't know how strict the rules are in the U.S. but in Germany this means mandatory quarantine.

I recommend quarantine for his phone, too. In a separate location...

#4 Germany has had a developed test ready in mid January. Gives results within 2 hours. Quickly approved by WHO.

If you hadn't filed that in the appropriate receptacle, you'd have tested more than 1100 people.

This number is tested in Germany... daily.

#5 The number reported is CDC-tested. Private testing is much more extensive

#6 But nobody is giving numbers and the National Institute of Health's Anthony Fauci told a congressional committee the testing system is not geared to the country's needs, and "that is a failing."

#7 /\ In a Crisis Situation a (1) Bureaucrat and a (2) Doctor combined in one person wants more personnel and more money while stating that they the "system is failing" (not them, the system...).
...How unexpected.

#8 "Private testing is much more extensive"

I don't know about that but is there no obligation to report those numbers?

#9 THAT was the Trump edict you inquired about, and yes, eventually, publicly. I imagine they're quit busy and numbers roll in as can

#10 I don't know about that but is there no obligation to report those numbers?

Part of the licensing agreement to have testing labs. You report all infectious cases to the CDC.

So yes, private labs will have to report their findings and they agree it is in everyone's best interest that they report it accurately.

#11  If you hadn't filed that in the appropriate receptacle, you'd have tested more than 1100 people.

That is why President Trump put Vice President Pence in charge of the entire coronavirus effort. The CDC originally refused to permit testing beyond their own labs, and their own test was so complicated it didn’t actually work. It took outside oversight to secure a useful test, trustworthy test kits, and permission for outside labs to do the work.

#12 A German lab had perfectly working tests available 2 months ago. Sold (and sells) them all over the world. 60 countries. 4 million tests as of today.

NOT in the U.S. One test kit weighs 14 grams, can be mailed by standard letter an delivers 96 Tests.

Cost of one test: 2.50 Euros. What are YOU paying?
