At the White House on Monday, President Trump spoke about testing for the coronavirus in the U.S., saying, “If we stopped testing right now, we’d have very few cases, if any.”
DONALD TRUMP: Again, our testing is so far advanced. It's so much bigger and better than any other country that we're going to have more cases. We're always going to have more cases. And as I said, this morning, that's probably the downside of having good testing is you find a lot of cases that other countries, who don't even test, don't have. If you don't test, you don't have any cases.
If we stop testing right now, we'd have very few cases, if any, but we do. We're at a level that Mike is going to talk about that's so high, but we will show more cases when other countries have far more cases than we do. They just don't talk about it, but the testing, on the other hand, is very good. Because we find out where it's going, how it's going, who it's going to, and we take care of it.
