Birx: States need to test more than 4% of population

White House Coronavirus Response Coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx showed on Friday encouraging graphs of the number of COVID-19 infected people descending in almost all American states. She stated though, that it is still necessary for governors to test more than 4% of the population in each state and more than 6% in states with a higher number of cases.

All graphs showed declining in the number of cases as well as the number of deaths caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

"We want to see all of the numbers trending down. We have to ensure asymptomatic and symptomatic cases are declining together and also mortality as well," said Birx and added that even though Washington and Chicago remained closed, there are still new cases every day. "We have concerns because the numbers are still persistently high," she added.
