Trump Says, He Asked Officials to Reduce Case Numbers to Slow Covid-19 Testing Down

The test is an important step in capturing a deadly epidemic that has infected 2.32 million people and killed 122,000 people in the United States alone. On Saturday, June 20, in a shorter decision than expected at the rally in Tulsa, President Trump announced that he had asked administration officials to reduce the Covid-19 test because the test had resulted in many cases.

Trump announced that the United States had conducted more than 25 million Covid-19 tests before claiming the “test is a double-edged sword” because there is a correlation between the high number of tests and the U.S., in the speech.

“Here’s the bad part,” “When you test this amount, you’ll find more people, and you’ll find more cases. So I told my people: lower the test, please!” Trump said.

A spokesman for the president told BuzzFeed that it was a joke and that “further testing means finding more cases of the virus.”  It is unclear what Trump means by that. He made a similar claim last week, suggesting that there would be very few cases if America stopped testing, reports Business Insider. However, further testing does not automatically mean more cases, as demonstrated in South Korea and Germany, the two countries Trump mentioned in his speech. Tests will not find cases if cases are not present.

This includes how the epidemic worked at the beginning of the epidemic: rotating tests nationally, arranging the necessary lockdowns, and listening to medical professionals and scientific consultants. People test, trace, and isolate that positive testing for the virus is the key to epidemic management.  You will need to test between 100 and 1000 to find a single case of Covid-19 in these two countries. In the United States, it is between 20 and 40.

A very few people at the rally wore masks, the first since the epidemic hit the president, which went ahead despite warnings from health officials that it was at risk of an increase in coronavirus cases. Luckily the number was not close to what the current administration had hoped for.

Returning to the campaign trail saw Trump doubling down on racist terms that have already caused widespread condemnation when he and his administration used them to talk about viruses such as the “China virus” and the “kung flu”. This modern moniker was used for racial prejudice against Asians because the virus known as SARS-CoV-2 is not related to the flu virus and Covid-19 is not a flu strain.

Increasingly, places around the world are behaving as if the epidemic is coming to an end, but this is far from the truth. The World Health Organization has just announced that there has been the largest single-day increase in Covid-19 cases worldwide since the global epidemic began yesterday, Sunday, June 21, with more than 173,000 new cases, including 3 from, 6,177 in the United States was.
