US: Almost 400,000 Covid1 9 Tests During Most Recent 24-Hour Period

5-12-2020 During the most recent 24-hour reporting period, the CDC reports that 394,711 tests for Covid 19 were performed, bringing the total number of Americans tested to  9,382,235. Testing is considered crucial to understanding and managing the Covid 19 pandemic.

A total of 1,347,936 Americans have tested positve for Covid 19, which is about 14.4% of those tested. The remaining 85%+ are confirmed not to have the coronavirus.

The CDC is also reporting a current preliminary death toll of 80,684 Covid 19 related deaths. This figure includes not only confirmed Covid 19 deaths, but also suspected or presumed cases that have not yet been confirmed by labrotorary tests. A second death toll is also reported on the CDC website, but lags a couple of weeks behind allowing time for lab tests results. These two sets of numbers have caused some confusion on social media. For a full explanation of these numbers, please see yesterday's article.
