1. I find it hard to believe we are only doing 7000 tests now per week instead of the 20,000

that was being done earlier. I don't think we are getting the full story. A couple of weeks ago it was announced that the Trump administration was sending in a large amount of testing centers. Are we getting these numbers?

This was from August 5:
To date, Arizona and the federal government have partnered to:

Stand up two surge testing sites in Maryvale and South Phoenix capable of conducting 60,000 tests. Additional test capacity is being sent throughout the state;
Procure an additional Roche testing machine for Sonora Quest Laboratories to further bolster testing in the state;
Deploy 170 surge medical personnel throughout the state;
With the help of Senator Martha McSally, send 100 ventilators to Arizona for critical need areas, including tribal nations;
Distribute more than 1.9 million N-95 masks, 12.1 million surgical masks, 5.8 million surgical gowns, and 380 million medical gloves to frontline medical workers;
Coordinate the donation of nearly 2,000 cases of Remdesivir for Arizona health care providers;
Allocate rapid point of care testing to more than 100 Arizona nursing homes, and more.

3. Sorry, yes per day. They were doing 20,000 per day and all of a sudden they started

reporting to the CDC and now we are down to 6000 to 7000 tests per day. Something seems fishy. Plus restaurants all over town are closing in service dining, because they have positive covid employees. I find it hard to be believe our test results are coming down this much.
