Trump Celebrates That US Has Only 1M COVID Cases

Reuters reports:

The United States has reported more than a million coronavirus infections only because of its testing, President Donald Trump said on Wednesday, hailing the effort as being “much better than any other country in the world.”

The Twitter comments came amid warnings from state public health officials that shortages of trained workers and materials have limited testing capacity. The rise pressures efforts to boost testing capacity and health officials flagged the challenge of getting tests to those who need them most.

“One of the problems has been is the tests getting to the people who need them,” U.S. infectious diseases expert and health official Anthony Fauci told CNN in an interview on Tuesday.
