Feds are pulling testing in Dallas. Yesterday we had 253 new cases in Dallas County which tied

the record.
We had 2 die yesterday.
County Judge Clay Jenkins said it wasn't because the cases were lessening, it was because the Feds are getting out of testing.
This will pull 1,000 tests per DAY from Dallas County.
These ratfuckers want us dead and don't want us counted. Plain and simple.

The county judge’s spokeswoman, Lauren Trimble, said that without the tests from the federal government, the American Airlines and Ellis Davis testing sites could close.

Jenkins said losing the testing would be a “big hit,” even with the announcement of seven new testing sites at Walmart and Kroger stores across the county that each can perform 50 tests a day.

Texas ranks last in coronavirus testing in the country, he said.

The county is now in the red zone, indicating a high community risk for transmission that means activities such as shopping or dining out should be avoided, Jenkins said.

1. Like other countries under dictatorships or fascist rule, critical evidence is being hidden and

critical supplies remain too scarce.
The roll back of nursing home regulations and policies that don't promote testing are further proof that "pro-life" is only for the fetus. The rest of us are on our own.

2. This Borders on Criminality

This is bull sh*t. Reducing the number of tests is undoubtedly tied to Trump's desire to tamp down the number of infections in States controlled by GOP governors. I'm pretty sure Dem governors would raise the roof about a trick like this.

3. are the hospitals getting slammed? The press needs to keep on top of it

With or without testing the hospitals will get slammed if the cases are rising.

We are lucky here in Illinois the state government stopped relying on the feds and are ramping up our own testing. Last week we hit 20,000 tests in one day and they say in another week they will have a lot more testing. We have hundreds of testing sights.

But, the deplorables especially downstate are going crazy about the shut down and are ignoring it and going to church. It's all a clusterfuck.

5. my deplorable's head has been exploding over the stats.

 

he thinks he is a lot smarter than he is, but number go in through a whole different brain circuit, and smoke is coming out of his ears.

i told him to forget the calculus part, and just count the bodies.

not as smart as he thinks, he swears he has the best math brain ever. i keep pointing out that he sucks at the maths every time he posts some "mathematical analysis" on fb. like, 'why the fuck does cuomo want that number of vents?'

back when we had 0 official deaths, i made a wager w him. he bet hitler's current projection at the time- 8-10k. i bet a million.
only a pity that i ran out of fucks w him and i'm done.
unless he suddenly becomes self aware, i'll just buy myself a pizza when my number hits.
sure never wished so hard to be wrong.

4. They are closing our counties testing sites too!

Our case numbers are still growing, now they won’t because they aren’t testing. That is a Trumpian way to reduce the numbers of new cases. If a person gets the Corona virus here but is not ever tested, they don’t have it! Like a tree falling in the woods when no one is around...

Literally. The best thing you can do for your country right now is survive the Covidiot siege we're under, register as many democrats as possible and make sure your voting status hasn't changed, been purged, and patriotically vote every Russpublican Covidiot out this November.

320 million Americans go completely untested, yet these elite conservatives get everything they could ever ask for. This is not a government of the people, for the people.

16. Texas has been under reporting the numbers from the get go.

At least that is my opinion. We will never know the true impact as we can't trust our government to test and report accurately.

It sucks because you can't even discuss numbers with rethugs. You just have to accept the divide.

23. Can't test positive if you don't get tested

and being alive is an underlying condition so if anyone was alive before getting infected with COVID-19, then it's not a COVID-19 death.

24. I'm sw houston. personally know over 30 people who were very sick Nov.2019-March 2020

very sick, coughing so much they couldn't even speak, some went through 2 courses of antibiotics when they went to see their Doctors, some Doctors did flu tests(negative for flu)

Now some of these people traveled out of country during last thanksgiving/Christmas/New years(Italy, Greece, Spain, Paris) some went on major cruises, some were in the medical care field, some are teachers, some are(were)on campus college students.

Only one was tested for covid and the test was AFTER she was very sick stay at home, sleeping most of the time for 8 weeks. She got her covid test end of march almost a month AFTER she 'recovered' at home.

No others were ever tested for covid..not one of them has had an antibody test.

Texas and the entire of America has the worse medical care and treatment system of all first world countries. We are truly on our own, even out Doctors don't stand up and DEMAND testing for everyone!
