Illinois governor on testing assistance: ’I’ve given up’ on any federal promises

Illinois Gov. JB Pritzker (D) said he has ’given up’ on promises for coronavirus aid from the federal government amid an escalating feud between him and Trump. His comments follow the President’s statement Tuesday that governors ’are supposed to do testing’ for Covid-19, despite many state leaders saying they need federal assistance to do so. Illinois has had over 23,000 cases and over 860 deaths

It’s sad we live in a country that has a prez that favors red states over blue when distributing Coronavirus supplies, or states that will play a major role in the 2020 election. Everything is transactional with him, even people’s lives.

I am so tired of all these stories, gripes, kvetching and moaning over an overblown disease. The death rate in the US, were it properly reported, is less than 1 %. What is wrong with everyone?

These worthless hacks need to decentralize... free the market to make an efficacious test. Pregnancy tests are instant, cheap and easy because the market is in charge of production and distribution.

Oh now you can't trust him.... It's been 3 1/2 years already and through out those 3 1/2 years he has constantly lied to the people and has been trying to down play this since it began. As a CBS reporter asked you one before. Our first confirmed case was back at the end of January..... Where was trump the whole time during February.... Golfing eating caviar while people continue to get sick. Way to NOT take any action. I could of done better myself.

Then don't give it to him, and let the voters figure out why it happened. It's very harsh, but if Trump bends knee to this stuff, they'll still bash him and then take credit for him.

Federalism: the states gave up a portion of their sovereignty to form the federal government in exchange for (among other things) protection from external threats. It is obvious that this president snoozed during his civics class. I'm 30, didn't even have a civics class, and yet I still know this! Trump has to be voted out. If Biden seems impalatable, rest assured knowing that he will choose better supreme Court justices than this orange maniac! The Supreme Court will have a DURABLE effect on our country and the rules for YEARS. Trump doesn't deserve a second term. He's a madman with a gun. If his properties and net worth are his main focus, than may they be burned as a sacrificial tribute for this man's transgressions! "Down with the King" as they would have chanted in Feudalism!

Did IL make requests through fema like every other state? Spoiler alert, no they did not... I know because I work for fema (budget office, dont care if anyone here believes me or not) and ran a search after reading this article snippet. There have been zero requests made through our system for covid 19 relief for the state of IL. Our system does not rely on the president liking you... just ask New York (among many other states).

The RT-PCR test that's being used to test for Covid-19 was initially developed to test for lung cancer. The inventor of the test recommended that it should not be used in testing for other diseases, because of it's very high probability of returning a false positive. It has an estimated 80% false-positives rate when testing for anything other than lung cancer. So approximately 8 out of 10 times someone who could very well have something like bronchitis or pneumonia, is instead tested for Covid-19, they're going to be mis-diagnosed with the Coronavirus. Why would they use a faulty test kit, if they're not trying to hide the reality of the illness?
