CDC Hindering Coronavirus Response

Black Death

Why has the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention been hindering our response to Coronavirus?

Here are a couple of examples:

Patient in Washington State who displayed Coronavirus symptoms. Because she had not been in contact with a known case she was not tested. turns out she was one of the first person to person transmission cases in the United States. She was eventually tested and tested positive. Delaying testing allowed this person to possibly spread Coronavirus.

CDC was the only group that was allowed to do Coronavirus testing. Their narrow guidelines allowed Coronavirus to spread person to person. When testing did start the CDC was quickly overwhelmed.
