Trump Daily 3/18/2020

  • In yesterday’s press conference, Trump defending the US not immediately adopting the WHO coronavirus test by saying they didn’t make an offer and that the test was bad. These are lies. WHO did offer the test and it’s accurate. Dr. Brix, the coronavirus response coordinator, said tests outside the US had a 50% false positive rate. Only two tests have had a high false positive rate – the initial test used by China and the initial test developed by the US CDC. No valid explanation has been given for why the US rejected the WHO test.
  • This is a must-read article. The Army Corps of Engineers has not been given any orders on any actions regarding the outbreak. FEMA has not been given a mission from HHS. The VA, which has extra hospital bed capacity, has not been asked to prepare that capacity for civilian use.
