Concerns over shortage of supplies at the testing sites in U.S. TODAY
President Donald Trump commented that there is now the availability of coronavirus tests; rather, many governors responded that they are running short, even as they about lifting their stay at home orders.
Maryland Governor. Larry Hogan, a Republican and the chairman of the National Governors Association, said on the broadcast that the lack of testing has probably been the number one problem in America. From the onset, it has been the problem of this crisis.
On the other side, Trump responded by insisting that there was ‘’tremendous capacity” for coronavirus testing at U.S. labs. Trump said governors such as Hogan needed” to get a little knowledge” about the testing situation.
We have plenty of capacity to test samples sent from medical offices and hospitals, said the country’s largest private labs. While governors said in a vast array of states, health care providers can’t conduct the tests because of a lack of supplies such as swabs and chemicals in the form of ” reagent” very crucial to the operation.
USA TODAY contacted public health experts, private and federal labs, come to an agreement that the major problem was a shortage of supplies at the testing sites where mucus samples take place.
A Republican in the form of Wyoming Gov. Mark Gordon said that states compete with each other to get more testing supplies, a process which he described as “a slog.”
Worry over testing escalated as trump administration issued guidelines meant to help states ease the temporary social distancing restriction put in place to slow the spread of the coronavirus, which reopen their economies.

I read a promising article about a new way to test using saliva samples. If that can be rolled out on a large scale, it might help.

No matter how many resources we have, it always seems to have some shortage as we are dealing with a pandemic, where thousands of people are infected each day.
