“We know there are people who are sick and not getting tested. The more testing we have in the community, the better.”

The plan also says that existing testing capacity is sufficient to contain the outbreak so long as tests are distributed properly, even though leading epidemiologists have argued otherwise.
Raymond James, a major investment bank, found Michigan to meet none of the White House’s criteria to re-engage a state economy.
The new report comes just a day before health officials confirmed that two people died with the coronavirus weeks before the first reported death, thus underscoring the need for widespread testing.
