Why is national COVID-19 testing decreasing?
Share this article now to help implement a national testing strategy!
While COVID-19 continues to spread, and with deaths averaging nearly 1,000 per day in August, testing has somehow decreased.
Let's be clear - the number of tests is not decreasing because fewer people are contracting the virus. Testing has increased in some areas, like New York, where COVID-19 cases are actually slowing down.
Between testing reductions and backlogs, our country is failing to track and stop the spread of this virus. You might recall President Trump urging health officials to "slow the testing down" so the numbers would appear better than reality.
Testing is the bedrock of any viral pandemic response. We must ensure a national testing strategy is put into place and executed. These tests need to be accurate, rapid, efficient, and ubiquitous and underpinned by robust technology.
We need your help to stop the spread. Share this article now to advocate for a national testing strategy.
