White house says, ‘After USA, India has done the most number of Covid19 tests’

In a recent interview regarding the covid-19 pandemic, The White House said that after the
USA, India has conducted the most number of coronavirus tests.
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany, “With regard to testing, we’ve done more
than 42 million tests. The second-highest number is 12 million from India. We’re leading the
world in testing.”
According to the Indian Council of Medical Research, India has tested 1.30 crore samples till
July 16. Of these, 3.33 lakh samples were tested on Thursday.
The USA has a record of 30 lakh or 3.5 million people who have tested positive and
1,38,000 have died. India crossed the 10-lakh mark on Friday and over 25,000 people have
died so far. The US is the worst-hit country by the virus, while India has the third-highest
number of cases.
After the U.S., which has carried out a record 42 million COVID-19 tests, India has done the
second largest number of 12 million coronavirus cases.
“CBS is reporting that in 2009 under Obama-Biden, the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention abruptly advised states to stop testing for the H1N1 flu and stopped counting
individual cases,” said Kayleigh McEnany.
“Ron Klain, Vice President Biden’s former Chief of Staff said this: It is purely a fortune that
(H1N1) isn’t one of the great mass casualty events in American history. It had nothing to do
with us doing anything right. This is former VP Biden’s Chief of Staff. It just had to do with
Contrary to that, this President led the world in testing; led the world in ventilators —
redistributing ventilators for therapeutics; 13 vaccine candidates — one going into phase
three clinical trial. This response has been extraordinary and historic. We didn’t pause
testing; the Obama-Biden administration did, and that was a shame,” She said.
“Faidoderna’s vaccine candidate is showing promising signs. They produced a positive,
neutral immune response among the 45 participants in the study. This is comparable to what
we see in recovered patients. The bottom line is that, so far, we are seeing exactly what you
would hope to see in a vaccine. The Moderna vaccine in particular is expected to reach
phase three by late July, with 30,000 participants,” she told the reporters.
