President Donald Trump said Tuesday that the United States will be able to bring five million tests crown a day, but to monitor the senior official test strategy, TIME said earlier in the day that the data present gate of technical it was not possible. in an interview Tuesday morning Admiral Brett Giroir, the State Secretary of Health, which is responsible for examining the government’s response, said that “there is absolutely no way in the world, on this planet or any other planet that we can do it 20 million tests per day or even five million tests a day. “the beginning of the year, the administration has conducted 5.7 million tests as a whole, he said. And while the government’s progress in increasing the number of tests carried out have made over the last few months, the new White House “model” for the test, developed on Monday to double the plans currently underway COVID-19 test . To Meet Giroir plans next month 8,000,000 per month. The budget would still fall short of what a study conducted by Harvard University said it is necessary to safely initiate public life. The 56-page “roadmap” published last week by a group of experts said that the US conduct to be able to take at least 5 million tests per day by the beginning of June and 20 million per day by the end of July at the reopening economy. Giroir called the judgment “ivory tower, unreasonable point of reference” that were not necessary, based on current modeling projections, and that could not be supported by current technology. Five hours later, he asked when a reporter Trump at the White House, if the country would reach five million daily test, as recommended, the Harvard study said Trump: “We will increase it, and will increase by much more than in” to clarify the question of whether the United States would mean “the very near future to exceed 5 million tests per day,” Trump said. “We will be very soon,” the largest number of tests in the US. one day was conducted 314,182, according to data of the Covid monitoring project. Trump does not offer as his administration would explain the increase of 1,500%, but the insured with the encounter “If you look at the numbers, it could be that we feel very close to” Always up to date on the growing threat to global health, by signing up for our daily newsletter crown. Trump’s statement was made the latest in a series of inaccurate and misleading statements made by the President about the COVID-19 crises that have often put him at odds with the experts recommended. talking on February 28 on the new crown, he explained, “like a miracle, it will disappear.” On March 6, he said that “those who want a test, a test can get.” Last week bizarre speculated, he could serve such “ultraviolet” light treatments or injection of disinfectants. In the absence of a vaccine or effective treatment of the new coronavirus, testing is a fundamental element in any plan to allow the Americans to return to his normal life, experts say. Trump apparent lack of familiarity with their plans Administration inspection, the latest issue of costly missteps on this front. In January, the Control Center and disease prevention for distributed hundreds of defective diagnostic testing kits. Then, in February, the Federal Food and Drug Administration was too slow in approving tests developed by the hospital, the university and private laboratories to create a bottleneck. The administration will be able to optimize these processes in the past two months to build the capacity, but as laboratories and countries are now competing for the same equipment, has created a new problem: the lack of supplies. The White House noted ongoing increase of US testing capabilities and expressed confidence to do it again on the states closer to the longer hope to open up the economy final goal Trump multi-level capabilities. While state and local governments re-opening of public health experts agree And ‘precise and widely used tests lead people to identify who may be infected, track their contacts, check the people who came in with an infected person contact, and insulate considered in order to reduce the chances of the public, who will spread the virus. The 5.7 million tests carried out in the United States, are far more than any other country, but less than 2% of the total represent percent of the US population. The plan of management control, announced Monday by the president in the White House Rose Garden, stressed that the objectives of the federal government to help all 50 states. Giroir, a specialist in pediatric intensive care who previously served in roles in the Defense Ministry, said that all states require a tailored strategy and that their individual test plans depend on a number of factors, including the “circulation the virus within their countries, as well as the special demographic development. “the goal is for each state at least 2% to its inhabitants screen, he said. The administration is working with States on a weekly basis to discuss their specific needs, check the test strategies, and follow-up of all other requests that they may need. “If we do it in a smart way to test how all those who were symptomatic and persecuted the contact and asymptomatic screening specifically that really the way to go,” said Giroir. Experts say that the United States has not done enough testing, accurate and useful images of the epidemic rise of developing for states with effective plans. “If a state assesses its true underlying infection wrong trajectory, can be great relapses of the disease suffer a long and painful Lockdown makes it necessary,” wrote Dr. Ashish Jha, director of the Harvard Global Health Institute. “But most states are far from adequate testing and monitoring of contacts that must be observed.” With different types of samples, including those from the nose and saliva, as well as the blood, the United States, the number of tests as a commercial testing companies by increasing production increased and the Food and Drug Administration continues to approve the tests. Member States are responsible for developing their own plans to ensure this company tests, said Giroir, while the federal government should be the “supplier of last resort.” “And ‘terribly inefficient to say that the government will buy all the supplies to create one new distribution center, making 5,000 hospitals, laboratories perhaps 10,000 in academic centers,” said Giroir. “What we really want is to use the commercial supply chain.” Senator Patty Murray of Washington, the top Democrat on the Health Committee has challenged this aspect of the review project administration, because individual states are fighting each other much needed medical care to get, The winning approach “identifies ways to solve our supply chain broken, or may offer any laboratory capacity for the expansion or activation required production capacity, “they have not said in a statement on Monday. “Perhaps the most pathetic thing is clearly trying to evade the federal liability based solely on the states, rather than assigned,” he said. Governors say the most severely affected States which are locked together of counter-offers to war to acquire some supplies, including test. Maryland Governor Larry Hogan was desperate for diagnostic test kits, so he bought half a million by a South Korean company kit. Politicians, doctors and hospital officials have criticized the secrecy Trumps supply shortage to ease of the private US production capacity to force them to make deliveries by the use of presidential authority under the law of defense production (DPA ). Giroir said that kind of criticism “as this work is based on very little knowledge about it.” If, for example, the audit have been cut slightly from March. The pad resemble oversized Q-tips and inserted into the nasal mucus sample on the tip of the connector is made in northern Italy and in China, where production has been depleted due to outbreaks crown. “As if on a type of buffer were instructed that made only in Italian, because that’s what the FDA is doing, no matter what I do [in the US], to open the market and various buffer types” Giroir have He said. Due to the scarcity of the most important test components such as buffers, chemical reagents and Giroir tubes recognizes that the federal government to increase the number of tests performed some critical parts of the supply chain needs help steer. In May and June to buy the plans to meet and deliver the components required all States plans they central areas of each state, the federal government. “For swab and tube, it really is the worst hand of the federal government,” he said. “We buy, we get, we know it’s there, we send them. But during the summer, until July, we even move the pad and buy tubes in a targeted free-market traffic control system where you do not buy, but we can ensure that Member States of what each individual. online necessity “Come this summer, he said.” We swim pads are to be “When reached by the comments of the president, the administration employees Giroir always said looking for ways examined test for the ramp, but argued that the conquest technological block -5 million tests can not be supported.
