    A perfectly timed Phase I implementation

    More testing = more cases. Nursing home(s) are almost lost causes…across the country. Very sad, but real. Some states opened > 2 weeks ago and not having a spike in deaths. Diagnoses going up with testing going up.

    I agree with Trump, if we would just quit with the darn testing then the cases would go away!! Quit getting tested people so this will go away!! (Makes sense that people as dumb as Trump love him!)

    Re: Mark’s Comment … Please 4give me bcuz I try to refrain from name calling or directly discrediting someone’s opinion … BUT I’m sorry, not only is that comment factually untrue & dishonest, It’s Idiotic too!
    This Libtard concept that Everyone must be tested b4 the economy can reopen & life return to Old Normal is PURE stupidity & completely unrealistic unless you can Test entire population at one time w/ stand in place orders and instant test results followed by automatically removing positives into forced isolation! The DEMONocRAT Governor & State push for testing is a direct result of opening Fed bank and paying states $24-40K per KUNG FLU Positive & Up to $400k per Death!
