Coronavirus Testing Capacity Critical to Trump Plan to Reopen Economy

Katherine Ross

President Trump has outlined plans to reopen the economy in three phases though the White House has yet to ensure that testing for the coronavirus will be made more readily available as has been urged by business leaders and infectious disease experts.

“We’re starting our life again,” the president said Thursday at a press briefing. “We’re starting rejuvenation of our economy again.”

Phase one would see restaurants, gyms, movie theaters and large sporting venues reopen if they adhere to strict social distancing requirements.
