Reno Gazette Journal: When COVID testing was scarce, CDC director pulled strings to get Adam Laxalt tested

Reno Gazette Journal: When COVID testing was scarce, CDC director pulled strings to get Adam Laxalt tested. “Dr. Robert Redfield called Nevada’s chief medical officer on a Saturday night in early March with an extraordinary request. Adam Laxalt, the former attorney general of Nevada until 2019 and booster for President Donald Trump, believed he was exposed to the coronavirus while attending the Conservative Political Action Conference in Maryland. But Laxalt was not showing symptoms and could not get approved for a test through a local hospital back home. On the phone call, Redfield asked the medical officer, Dr. Ihsan Azzam, to get it done, according to interviews and internal communications USA TODAY received through records requests. ”
