The Trump administration is seeking to cut funding to boost coronavirus testing from a new relief bill, reported The Washington Post.

The White House is also reportedly seeking to exclude funding for measures to fight the pandemic at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Pentagon, and the State Department.

Trump has falsely claimed that increased testing is why infection rates are rising in the US, but public health experts say testing is measuring a real increase in cases.
