New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo slams CDC coronavirus response: ‘Absurd and nonsensical’

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Friday criticized the federal government’s response to the COVID-19 outbreak, calling it “absurd and nonsensical.”

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was slow to initially test people for the virus, he said, then  “in a tardy fashion” it said states could test. The Trump administration’s management of the outbreak isn’t just “bad government and poor planning,” but it will “increase the fear,” Cuomo said.

Local and state officials in areas of the country suffering outbreaks of the new coronavirus have criticized the CDC’s testing criteria, lack of tests and poor communication with local health officials.

“I don’t understand the CDC’s instructions here on how they think this should work,” he said, adding that the CDC has instructed health officials to test as many people as possible. “If the vice president says we don’t have sufficient testing capacity, then how are you inviting anyone who thinks they need a test to go get a test?” CNBC
