But trying to take advantage of this to say that the governors of the states have the capabilities to conduct a lot of tests and that they have to work and perform the tests, or in other words we do not do our work, this is completely false.
Democratic Party of Virginia Governor Ralph Northam said that Trump and his deputy, Mike Pence, claim that the states have a lot of checks just an illusion.
The Maryland area, Virginia and Washington, DC, are still witnessing an increase in cases despite the beginning of the decline in New York, which is the main outbreak in the United States.

The United States recorded the highest number of confirmed cases of coronavirus in the world, exceeding 744,000, while deaths reached more than 40,000 people.
