Here we go...feds pulling out of Dallas' testing centers

We havenít even plateaued.
Looks like itís the start of Trumpís stop testing mentality.

https://www.dallasnews.com/news/public-health/2020/05/11/dallas-county-reports-253-new-coronavirus-cases-tying-its-single-day-high/?fbclid=IwAR1TJvYiGQLScVewug1Y2NAPsvBU0jUQWc7OGgD-MjQTN09fhpLE3iqZCGw

The federal government plans to pull COVID-19 tests from two Dallas sites by the end of the month, Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins said Monday. The move could close the two largest testing sites and the county would lose 1,000 tests a day.

Jenkins said heís trying to negotiate an extension. Heíll have backing from Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson, who is preparing a statement with the county to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and Federal Emergency Management Agency, said Tristan Hallman, a spokesman for the mayor.

The extension wouldnít be the first for the county, but Jenkins isnít sure another will be granted.

Pulling the tests isnít a sign that case numbers are declining but ďan indication that the feds are getting out of testing,Ē he said.

2. I'm with you 100% -- What did we learn from the propaganda fest, only

what we previously knew ... and, that Fauci solidified his positions.

5. Yup. There is no way he can be blamed by trump.

States desperately needing to test which is basically everyone are going to see a month down the road that we are all fucked because the feds are incapable of doing anything. We only need to look as far as Dallas. The feds are ENDING testing there when supposedly theyíre ramping up tests everywhere.

Repukes gave away their hand already saying there isnít enough money. There is only money for corporations. Programs and working people didnít get jack shit.

When schools open back up itís going to get REALLY BAD.
