    His statement of asymptomatic might not be tested positive might be misleading. We found 85% of infected youth has no symptoms, meaning they can be detected if tested

    Trump REPEATEDLY blames Obama for "broken tests" for a virus that didn't even exist yet. Yeah. That's how dumb your President is. COVID-19 DEATHS IN THE US. March 01 6 April 01 6,394 May 10 79,429 I'm not seeing the GREAT JOB Trump keeps bragging about.

    You don’t need to test everyone in this country, that would be an impossible task to begin with. Our President is doing a good job for what he has to work with. So sick of the negativity that surrounds this man, just because you Democrat’s lost the election. Who do you think brought this virus here in the first place, I could think of a few names, NP, HC, CS,.👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻😡

    Anarchy Today the United States of America is in a state of complete disarray. This is not due to any errors by their doyens of their planning commissions. The bureaucracy has always been doing an admirable work in keeping the large nation that is bordered by three oceans. The stumble is because of the machinations of one man and his acolytes. Indeed the USA cannot progress with its current administration led by Donald the Ignoramus Trump. This obtuse man used xenophobia to gather the vermin who prey on society to support his candidacy to become President. Since the rats outnumber the cats, the rats of society managed to get their leader into the White House. They have thus made a colossal error in judgement for the wealthy educated sagacious of society went into hibernation. Besides , they lacked a cohesive articulate leader who could appeal to the hearts and souls of the rats and other vermin who constitute the uneducated ignorant masses of American society. Until Donald Trump completes his term in office and ceases being the President of the USA, the old beloved phrase ‘living the American dream’ has been put on hold. The world has always been envious of the prosperity evident in the lifestyles and thought patterns of American citizens. Now the world could deride America as being equal to a third world nation. It would be the hope of the less fortunate who live in underdeveloped or developing nations for they always enviously hope for America to fail. Would this be the lasting legacy of Donald Trump ? Could this be the permanent result of the Trump presidency. Has America peaked? Is it on the way down to penury and desolation ? Some may say that only time will tell! However, I beg to differ insomuch that over time, the world has seen America face internal upheavals such as the Lincoln and Kennedy assassinations, the debt crisis , the mortgage crisis, the Great Recession of recent history, the Great Depression of the not too distant history and the civil war that nearly split the American public into creating two countries from the shambles of the first . America faces Ebola, MERS and SARS. America survived economic collapse after the 9/11 attack on the twin towers and the Pentagon. After each debacle, the redoubtable American fortitude and determination saved the nation. The Americans now face Covid 19. However they will find a cure for it and vanquish it soon enough. I estimate 18 months, based on my observations and subsequent inference from reported news and opinions of scholars , scientists , doctors and experts. America’s enemy currently is not Covid19. The enemy is Donald Trump. His megalomania and psychopathic ramblings and erroneous decisions have shocked educated Americans who had been ensconced in their lofty castles of capitalism, for they had lived in a world of comfort and fun. Now that they have been jolted awake from their stupor, it is almost a certainty that they will topple the mad man who sits in the White House and save the nation from deteriorating to lesser standards from that which they have been accustomed to. It is in November that the war of the two solitudes of vermin vs lions , shall play out. The result will determine the fate of America for the next five years, along with the fate of a world that is reeling with shock from the effects of the Covid19 virus. The world awaits with bated breath. Long live the bastion of democracy. Rekindle the American dream . Rise up good folk and give your support to the lions as they surge forward to rescue democracy from the vermin that control America today. Come November we welcome you to cross us back over this twilight and shame. Rise up Democrats.

    It's like doing 9 tests on 10 subjects v doing 10 test on 90 subjects. One of these shall give a much insight to true results. Not rocket science.

    When people are out and back to work, it's likely this will spread more greatly. The only solution I see, is a vaccine.
