Trump should use DPA to expand COVID-19 testing, de Blasio says

NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio said on Monday that President Trump should invoke the Defense Production Act to expand the capacity of labs to process tests for COVID-19. ’The federal government has to step up now because it is becoming a national crisis’, de Blasio said, citing processing delays and supply shortages.

Kinda late from de Blasio. Covid-19 has been a national crisis for quite some time, now. But yes, testing can and should be ramped up further. Increased testing will surely lead to more people being identified who are COVID positive, and this should also be coupled with aggressive contact tracing.
