At least 37,824 tests for COVID-19 have been conducted in the U.S. by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and public health laboratories, as of March 17, according to the CDC . This includes a total of 4,484 tests conducted by the CDC and 33,340 tests conducted by public labs. The Trump administration has been criticized for the botched rollout of the tests and complaints about access to testing by those who are sick. At least four commercial diagnostics companies have received emergency use authorization from the Food and Drug Administration for their COVID-19 tests.
