CNN Doctor Claims ‘Deliberate’ Attempt By Trump To Minimize Pandemic ‘By Not Testing.’ U.S. Has Conducted Most Tests, John Hopkins Says.
NEW YORK - MAY 05: CNN's chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta attends Time's 100 Most Influential People in the World Gala at the Frederick P. Rose Hall at Jazz at Lincoln Center on May 5, 2009 in New York City.

CNN contributor Dr. Sanjay Gupta claimed without evidence on Monday night that the Trump administration deliberately minimized the COVID-19 pandemic “by not testing,” despite the fact that Johns Hopkins University & Medicine says the “U.S. has conducted more COVID-19 tests than any other country.”
“Look at the U.K. We’ll discuss it later in the show with [inaudible] from Harvard who is taking a look at it. How do they get these rapid tests?” CNN host Chris Cuomo said. “How are they getting it done in 90 minutes? Is the U.K. so much better than us? Is there some science that’s proprietary? I mean, couldn’t we be buying up those kinds of tests right now, doc?”“We should have been developing this ourselves, Chris. And you talked about this early on, there was a strategic, I think, method to minimizing this by not testing,” Gupta claimed. “Sad to say, but I think that’s the truth now, you sort of suggested that early on and I thought, maybe we’re just behind. But I think it was deliberate now at this point to not test, because it would make things look bad, we should have had significant breakthroughs in antigen testing by now.”
“It should be easy to know what your day is going to be like for the coronavirus as it would be looking at your phone for the weather,” Gupta added. “Do I have it? Do people around me have it? What’s the weather look like? What’s the coronavirus look like?”CNN HOST CHRIS CUOMO: Look at the U.K. We’ll discuss it later in the show with [inaudible] from Harvard who is taking a look at it.

CUOMO: But do we have it even created, doc? Can’t we get it from somewhere else? Where did the U.K. Get it?
GUPTA: So that was another thing, you know, the initial test that was available, that we did not use, was a world health organization test. There was this idea that we will create our own test.
CUOMO: But then we pulled out of that.
