Elected officials self-quarantine after treating the coronavirus as a hoax - 2020-03-09
A week ago the ultra-conservative CPAC conference took place, the day after Trump called the novel coronavirus a "hoax." One of the CPAC attendees evidently had the virus and came into contact with a number of elected officials, including Ted Cruz, Doug Collins, Matt Gaetz, and Paul Gosar, who are all self-quarantining. Gaetz was on a plane with Trump earlier today.
Gaetz announced he'll get tested, but the others haven't answered whether they will .
But the prospect of getting tested for merely having come into contact with someone who has the virus raises a daunting question about the availability and scalability of testing.
