Most U.S. states reject Trump administration’s new COVID-19 testing guidance for asymptomatic people

Heather Brown, right, is tested for COVID-19 at a new walk-up testing site at Chief Sealth High School, Friday, Aug. 28, 2020, in Seattle.A majority of U.S. states have rejected new Trump administration COVID-19 testing guidance in an extraordinary rebuke of the nation’s top agency for disease prevention, according to officials at state health agencies and public statements reviewed by Reuters.

“This is states almost all-out rebelling against the new guidelines,” said Michael Mina, assistant professor of epidemiology at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. Admiral Brett Giroir, the assistant secretary for health at HHS, said in a statement to Reuters that the guidance “has been updated to reflect current evidence and best public health practices, and to further emphasize using CDC-approved prevention strategies.”

Giroir said on a Wednesday press call there was no political pressure from the administration. He said testing asymptomatic patients too early could produce false negatives and contribute to the virus’s spread.

Thanks god, at least not all people are stupid enough to follow Trump!

Forgot to insert 'Democratic' Same Democratic States with highest death counts from Wuhan Coronavirus

'most people think people who are not sick, are really really sick'

I believe I read where CDC reversed that position.

This is so reckless. Trump doesnt want more testing because his numbers go up and that makes him look bad. All political, lives dont matter. Cdc needs to get out of trumps pocket

Its the CDC's advice.
