                Arizona ‘Overwhelmed’ With Demand for Tests as U.S. System Shows Strain

                American coronavirus testing remains fragmented, as in the early days of the pandemic, and the bottlenecks are the same ones, too.


                People seeking drive-up coronavirus tests in Phoenix faced a three-mile-long car line last weekend. On Friday, Arizona’s largest laboratory received twice as many samples as it could process. The phone line for testing appointments at a large site on the state fairgrounds now opens at 7 a.m. with 800 callers already in the queue.

                By 7:07 a.m., all 1,000 appointments for the day are typically taken.

                “We are literally overwhelmed with the numbers requested,” said Dr. Marjorie Bessel, chief clinical officer at Banner Health, the hospital system that runs the fairground site. “The testing is very popular, and very needed, but we don’t have enough of it.”

                The United States’ coronavirus testing capacity has begun to strain as the pandemic continues to spread, with over 35,000 cases recorded Tuesday. Across the country, more than a dozen public laboratories say they are now “challenged” to meet the demand.

                The problem has become especially acute in Arizona, where the rapid spread of the virus has left health care providers and medical labs no longer able to meet testing demands.

                        • 20 million may be the more correct # of positives.

                              Over the past few weeks, as Coronavirus cases have surged in Arizona, some testing sites have shut down. Why? They're mostly outdoors, to lower risk of transmission, but can't operate in extreme heat. Welcome to fighting coronavirus in the summer.

                              • Guns & ammo are definitely essential services; I don't know how I'd sleep at night without the knowledge that in the morning the fine folks bringing me peace-of-firearms-mind are sacrificing their lives every day so that I can shoot whoever scares the fuck out of me . . . Where's a useful gun, one that shoots coronavirus??
