March 11, 2020 Press Release
As the number of confirmed cases of coronavirus in the U.S. increases, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) continues to supply public testing facilities at the state and local levels with additional testing kits to match the increase in demand. President Trump and his administration continue to work with state health departments to ensure that anyone who should be tested has the ability to be tested and given results in a timely manner. “The CDC continues to work with state health officials to provide states with additional testing capabilities,” said U.S. Congressman Roger Marshall, M.D. “By the end of the week, the CDC will have more than 4 million tests ready to ship to public labs across the U.S. We have the capability to test those who need tested and the CDC has provided our physicians with the ability to test anyone they believe should be tested. This is not a time for panic but instead a time to put into place those practices and procedures we have been taught to reduce the spread of germs. My office has been in communication with the CDC almost daily and I am confident in the work being done by President Trump and this administration to support our health care providers and control the spread of this virus.”
