Trump asks to slow down the pace of testing.
The President of the United States Donald trump ordered to slow the rate of coronavirus infection testing due to the fact that there are too many confirmed cases Covid-19, reports the Chronicle.info with reference to Country.
He said this Sunday, June 21, at a campaign rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
“Testing is a double — edged sword. We tested for 25 million people, maybe 20 million more than in other countries… But what is bad, the more you test, the more you identify cases (coronavirus — Ed.). So I told my people: “Please slow down testing”. And they check and check,” said trump.
In addition, the American leader announced the opening of schools in the United States this fall. According to him, this decision was taken due to the fact that children supposedly have a strong immune system capable of dealing with the coronavirus.
“Children are much stronger than us. Let’s open school, please. We must open them, we need them to open in the fall,” said trump.
In turn the White house later clarified that the statement trump the slowdown in testing in the country a joke.
According to the latest data, the U.S. recorded 2 330 578 cases of coronavirus. 121 980 people died from Covid-19, recovered 972 941.
