Don’t Defund Crucial Coronavirus Testing Sites

Target: Donald J. Trump, President of the United States of America

Goal: Don’t cut funding to crucial coronavirus testing sites across the United States.

President Trump confirmed plans to cut funding to 13 coronavirus testing sites. Officials have warned that lack of testing will cause further spread of Covid-19.

Seven of the testing sites that will lose funding are in Texas, a state that has experienced recent surges in infection rates. Four of the sites are in Harris County, which includes the city of Houston, where doctors have warned that hospitals are nearing capacity. Other states that will lose funding are Illinois, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Colorado.

Four state congress people in Texas wrote a letter to the federal government and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) urging the government to reconsider defunding. They wrote, “We need the support of FEMA now more than ever as our communities and the state of Texas see unprecedented growth in cases of the coronavirus disease.” Sign below to demand that President Trump reverse his decision to defund coronavirus testing sites.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear President Trump,

As coronavirus infection and death rates surge across the country, it is far too early to even consider defunding testing sites.

Testing is a vital resource that this country needs in order to slow the spread of COVID-19. The United States has still yet to properly respond to this crisis. In order to slow the spread of the coronavirus and save thousands of lives, I demand that you reverse your decision to defund testing sites.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Ayla Burnett you better get your facts straight before you spread these lies. You should be held accountable for this. Force change should also be held accountable for allowing lies to be spread. Shame on you for trying to destroy the truth. Look it up. Try Google.
