California Governor Newsome had polite praise for Mr. Trump last week when he said, “We had a very long conversation, and every single he said they followed through on.”

Rapido. No goofing around. No playing politics.

Now we’ve got the Governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo, thanking Vice President Pence and President Trump.

“I want to thank the Vice President and especially the President who facilitated this and moved quickly.”

What was so great that it warranted these remarks? A drive-thru mobile testing center. It is a model being duplicated everywhere. What is it? Great question.

“This is drive-thru testing — something I didn’t hear of last week, but we’re doing this week,” Gov. Andrew Cuomo said.

“Drive-through testing means people in this community can call a telephone number, make an appointment, and they can come to be tested and literally drive through the testing facilities.”

Did you catch that? Something I didn’t hear of last week, but we’re doing this week. Somehow leviathan government managed to make this happen or get out of the way to let it happen.

These can be set up anywhere, but especially in hot-spots as they begin to flare up. The one pictured above (and in the video below) is in New Rochelle where cases have spiked; it currently has the highest cluster of anyplace in the US.

“Drive-through testing means people in this community can call a telephone number, make an appointment, and they can come to be tested and literally drive through the testing facilities.”

The set-up includes six drive-through lanes to handle 200 cars a day, Cuomo said. That’s about 15 minutes per car, he said.

The medical staff will come to the car, perform two tests per person and then send the swabs to BioReference Laboratories, the research lab in the state charged with processing.

“It’s not only faster and easier, it’s also smarter because you’re not exposing people to a person who may be positive,” Cuomo said.

Gov. Cuomo is thanking VP Pense and “especially” President Trump.

We have video of what these look like, care of the NY Post.
