Numerous other wellbeing specialists additionally responded with alarm.

"An expected 40-half of individuals with #covid19 are asymptomatic. Those presented to the infection need to know to secure their relatives and people in general. One needs to ponder: is this change since we need more tests?"
Both The New York Times and CNN quote authorities saying that the CDC was told to change its rules following weight from the president.
