Barack Obama helped spread the coronavirus with this disastrous decision
The mysterious coronavirus is slowing spreading across America.
There are now over 100 confirmed cases in America and at least ten deaths.
And Barack Obama helped spread the coronavirus with this disastrous decision.
Getting enough testing kits to hospitals and labs around the country is a major obstacle to detecting coronavirus infections.
If medical professionals can’t detect who is infected then they can’t isolate sick Americans before they spread the virus.
One roadblock in the way of the Trump administration containing the coronavirus was an Obama-era regulation requiring state-run laboratories to only conduct tests approved by the Obama administration.
This prevented them from running their own diagnostic tests and allowed the virus to spread undetected across America.
The Trump administration solved this problem by repealing this Barack Obama regulation.
Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Steven Hahn “We believe this policy strikes the right balance during this public health emergency,” Hahn explained. “We will continue to help to ensure sound science prior to clinical testing and follow-up with the critical independent review from the FDA, while quickly expanding testing capabilities in the U.S.”
“This action today reflects our public health commitment to addressing critical public health needs and rapidly responding and adapting to this dynamic and evolving situation,” Hahn added.
Donald Trump acted with great speed to address the coronavirus.
President Trump’s decision to impose travel restrictions on China prevented a more widespread outbreak in America and bought time for the administration to ramp up its capabilities to deal with the virus before it spreads uncontrollably across America.
When President Trump put Vice President Pence in charge of the coronavirus response Pence promised a “whole of government” approach to containing this virus.
The President continues to make good on that word as the administration’s health professionals direct a coordinated effort to prevent as many Americans as possible from getting infected.
