MASS TESTING for Covid before any orders for social distancing are relaxed!

Experts are unanimously and universally recommending MASS TESTING of the population for the COVID 19 virus as a prerequisite to "restarting" the economy or relaxing social distancing orders.  The US is testing at a rate of less than 3.2 per thousand, in eleventh place among industrial nations.  This is unacceptable, as mass testing is the only way to isolate the COVID 19 virus in our communities and slow its spread considerably. Social distancing alone, without testing, is just a momentary pause (at considerable expense both socially and economically); but premature loosening measures will be counterproductive, and will only result in further harm to the population and economy.  The people demand that our local, state and federal leaders commence a massive project (with the help of private industry and capital) for universal testing across the country before any relaxation of standards are considered.  Time is of the essence.  

The people are living in a state of permanent anxiety and it doesn't help when we see the lack of coordination across the spectrum to tackle this severe health crisis.  People are dying and suffering unnecessarily while we spend valuable time bickering about the details.  There will be time for that AFTER we defeat this pandemic.  The urgent and most consequential action to be taken right now is MASS TESTING - let's get it done!
