(NewsReady.com) – During the April 27 coronavirus press briefing, President Donald Trump released new resources to help America increase its testing capabilities. State governments are going to have control of the decisions. The eight-part plan intends to help direct local governments down a path of success.
As states reopen their economies, they’ll need more data about infection rates to make informed choices. According to a White House official, the goal is to get at least 2% of all residents tested in every state, especially frontline workers and vulnerable populations. Part of the eight-part guidance is to enact FDA-approved emergency use authorizations (EUAs) to improve COVID-19 testing capabilities.
Almost like clockwork, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) complained about the president’s actions.
The Trump administration’s testing plan at best an incomplete and at worst a failure.
His notion that states need to figure this out on their own is wrong. It’s shirking responsibility.
We need a national coordinated effort with strong leadership.https://t.co/P6SunNWDGv
— Chuck Schumer (@SenSchumer) April 28, 2020
Schumer wants a “national coordinated effort,” which is another way to say overbearing government control. Trump, on the other hand, is respecting the autonomy of the states while still coordinating with and guiding them in the right direction.
With this new plan, federal, state, and local governments can seamlessly communicate with one another and be on the same page. Local communities that may have been unsure of how to proceed, can now more easily obtain testing kits and distribute them to areas where you, or someone you know, need them.
