Original title: US media: U.S. detection capacity has reached the limit, data update is seriously delayed
[Overseas Online April 1 | War Epidemic Time Zone ] U.S. President Trump said on March 30 that the number of new crown virus detections in the United States has exceeded one million, achieving the detection target set by the government in early March. He said that this number is a “milestone” for the United States to fight the epidemic, but a report from the “Atlantic Monthly” on the 31st said that the detection in the United States is actually mainly responsible for private companies, and now their detection capabilities have reached their limit There are a large number of samples to be tested, and the update of the epidemic data is seriously delayed. Among them, the state of California is the worst.
It is reported that California is the most populous state in the United States, and the state also reported the first case of community transmission in the United States. In the past few weeks, the average number of tests per day in California was 2136, the number of tests per capita was lower than the 34 states in the United States that routinely report outbreaks, and the number of tests per capita in New York was 13 times that of California.
Last weekend, California reported that more than 64,000 people were waiting for the test results. On March 31, it was reported again that the number of people waiting to be inspected was revised to over 57,000 because a private laboratory had not intentionally reported more. But even so, California’s private companies still need weeks to test, and California’s true epidemic may not be clear by then. (Overseas Wang Xiluo) Wu
