Early next week, Americans who think they might have COVID-19 can access a screening website and drive-through testing centers in parking lots of major retailers and pharmacies, President Donald Trump announced on Friday. He declared the outbreak of the disease caused by the new coronavirus a national emergency and laid out changes to the nation’s healthcare system as a result. The federal government will relax numerous regulations on hospitals and doctors so they can make quick decisions without limits on how, when, or where they provide care for patients.
