Why does South Korea have ample Coronavirus Test kits and the USA doesn't ??

Is it our leadership? Why do some countries have ample Coronavirus Test kits and we don't?


Let's face it,  a lack of proactive testing is a major concern for public health experts in the USA since before Covid-19 even arrived. Without wide testing, it’s impossible to detect and gauge the spread of the contagion in the community.  We in Hawaii can't get a handle on the spread of this disease until this problem is solved.

There should be ample test kits available as needed and Hawaiian communities should be testing individuals proactively, which has uncovered cases of suspected community transmission in Washington state. Federal health officials need to deliver “point of care” testing, which gives local physicians and hospitals the ability to test on-site.

  • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was slow to initially test people for the virus, he said, then “in a tardy fashion” it said states could test.
  • The Trump administration’s management of the outbreak isn’t just “bad government and poor planning,” but it will “increase the fear,” Cuomo said.

The president spent much of the press conference working to convince the public his administration has the coronavirus under control, something that does not appear to be the case.
