Trump: Not everyone should get tested for COVID-19

United States President Donald Trump said on Friday that only people who display certain symptoms should get tested for coronavirus.

At a press conference in the White House's Rose Garden, the president announced his administration's partnership with the private sector on delivering as many COVID-19 tests as possible to the public. He said 500,000 tests should be available next week and another 5 million within one month. Swiss healthcare giant Roche will be contributing to this effort, he revealed, with its latest high-speed coronavirus test which was already cleared by the FDA.

Meanwhile, Trump added, Google will develop an informative website where Americans would be able to find information on the coronavirus, its symptoms and testing.
