Health Editor’s Note:  Why is the U.S. not doing testing of everyone?  Wuhan is experiencing a new outbreak and has jumped on trying to contain it with hundreds of thousands of tests.  Yes, the U.S. needs to look for carriers who are having no symptoms because they spread the virus as well as those who have symptoms..perhaps even more effectively since it is done silently. Wake up Trump and those who are supposed to be in charge of this pandemic!  People are dying by the thousands, some states have left the ‘stay at home’ orders behind and we still have not clue of how to successfully treat COVID-19…..Carol

BEIJING (Reuters) – The city of Wuhan, the original epicentre of the new coronavirus outbreak in China, conducted 467,847 nucleic acid tests on May 18, the local health authority said on Tuesday, up from the 335,887 tests a day earlier.

Wuhan kicked off a campaign on May 14 to look for asymptomatic carriers – infected people who show no outward sign of illness – after confirming on May 9-10 its first cluster of COVID-19 infections since its release from a virtual lockdown in early April.
