      Doctors are 'begging' for more coronavirus testing, but the system is failing

      Soon, they keep telling us. Soon there will be coronavirus tests available. Or they’re telling us tests are already available. “Anybody that wants a test can get a test,” according to Donald Trump on March 6.

      Yeah, right. Tell that to the people in Colorado who were turned away from a drive-through testing site. Tell it to the doctors and nurses in Miami “begging” to be allowed to test their patients for COVID-19.


      “Nurses and doctors in the emergency room are on the front lines, and they’re having to fight with bureaucracy to get a test,” said the president of the union for nurses and doctors at Miami’s Jackson Memorial Hospital.

      In Boston, a 32-year-old woman spent five hours in the emergency department as doctors tried to get a test for her—she lives near the location of the Biogen meeting that spread the disease to dozens of people, and had severe shortness of breath.


      "We are being crippled by our department of public health and the CDC on our ability to combat this pandemic,” one Boston doctor told CNN, calling the situation “insanity.”

      This is the reality: There are not enough tests, and the CDC’s standards for who should be tested basically ignore the possibility of community transmission.

      After weeks of trying to stay close enough to the Trump message to stay out of trouble, Dr. Anthony Fauci, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, went off-message. ”The system is not really geared to what we need right now, what you are asking for. That is a failing,” he told the House Committee on Oversight and Reform on Thursday. “It is a failing. I mean, let’s admit it.”

      ”The idea of anybody getting it easily the way people in other countries are doing it, we are not set up for that. Do I think we should be? Yes. But we are not,” he added.

      We can only look at other countries, like Italy, and guess how bad it will be. Those guesses are based on pitifully inadequate information about what’s going on in the United States right now, last week, last month, because Donald Trump did not want to admit there was a problem he hadn’t solved by limiting travel from China.

          Trump steps up 2 weeks late!
          But still shaking hands in public, on camera extending his hand to Dr. Fauci who just testified under oath that people should
          STOP SHAKING HANDS."
          Our prez is a moron, he confirms it every day that he keeps breathing.

              And if that's not revolting enough...


              Trump had also granted the development of vaccine rights to for-profit Big Pharma companies. Many of the CEOs are Trump friends and contributors, including HHS Director Alex Azar, who was top lobbyist for Ely Lilly & Company. Apparently, in general, the only Coronavirus test kits available now are from private labs and some university and specialty hospitals. Even in these few sites, persons are refused a test if they don’t meet certain criteria, but the vast majority of Americans have no COVID-19 testing recourse whatsoever.

                  And...

                  One must also mention that is likely that the US could still accept the World Health Organization test that Trumped turned down, as Hartmann notes, and end the rampant infection that is assuredly exponentially growing because infected people are walking around untested due to Trump's utter betrayal on testing. In addition, there is the issue of the additional kit needed to confirm the tests and its shortage. As Politico detailed in a November 10 article: “US coronavirus testing threatened by shortage of critical lab materials.”

                    trump deliberatly reduced the # of tests available to keep the numbers low .
                    He wanted to keep a boat of sick human being off shore so they would not impact his numbers.
                    His lies and self serving incompetence is why the market plunged 9 thousand points !
                    thanks to trump I have to take the K off of my 401 !

                      Fortunately, Chinese billionaire Jack Ma is donating 500,000 test kits to the US.
