The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported Wednesday a new case of coronavirus in a Northern California resident who did not visit China or another foreign country and who did not have contact with an infected person, according to the Washington Post and other media outlets.
Patient was transferred to UC Davis last Wednesday. Apparently UC Davis asked the CDC to test for COVID-19 but CDC refuses because the patient did not fit their strict requirements. Four days later CDC does test and patient is found positive.
Meanwhile in Korea they’ve developed bed side tests and are conducting hundreds every day. Thousands of tests have been performed in Italy. So on. I’m quite disappointed in the CDC which I used to hold in high regard. The reputation of the CDC has well and truly been destroyed by this pandemic. Maybe they can rebuild it but it’s not looking good.
