‼️For weeks, thousands of samples sat in #Seattle as researchers sought to test them for #coronavirus, but @CDCgov wouldn’t allow it.

“We felt like we were sitting, waiting for the #pandemic to emerge. We could help. We couldn’t do anything.”🤬…
While the CDC failed to provide working #COVID19 tests, private and university clinical labs, which typically can develop their own tests, were frustrated about the SLOWNESS of the FDA as they prepped applications for emergency approvals from FDA for their #coronavirus tests.🤬
This is damning. While the Trump Administration LIED that there would be 1 million tests last week, instead there were countless untested samples in the “hot zone” of #Seattle that could have been tested EARLY, but were BLOCKED.

How many people were infected because of this⁉️
As I’ve advised for MANY weeks, this #coronavirus cannot be stopped, but it can be contained, only if #COVID19 cases are detected *early*, and people are quarantined.

The failure of the Trump Administration to respond decisively will COST LIVES.🤬
Pathetic. “The CDC says approximately 8,500 specimens or have been taken since the beginning of the outbreak...By comparison, #SouthKorea, which discovered its first case around the same time as the US, has...the capacity to test roughly 10,000 people a day since late February.”
DAMNING: “The scientists said they believe that they will find evidence that the virus was infecting people even earlier, and that they could have alerted authorities sooner if they had been allowed to test.”

How many people are at risk for death, due to lack of testing⁉️
A #pandemic is like a snowball falling downhill. If you don’t stop it early...

Just ask #China and #Italy what happens when this #coronavirus is allowed to spread undetected and unchecked.

Expect a MASSIVE surge in #COVID19 cases over the coming weeks.
