CDC/COVID-19/TRUMP ADMIN: “The Trump administration sought to suppress Covid-19 testing in the United States last year by softening guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on who needed to be tested, a House panel said Monday [Feb. 8, 2021].

In August, the CDC revised its Covid-19 testing guidance to say that people who don’t have symptoms ‘do not necessarily need a test’ even if they were exposed to an infected person. The move was widely criticized by public health specialists and politicians, who said testing asymptomatic people is an important part of identifying and cutting off chains of spread.”
