Virus testing falling below levels needed for 'adequate surveillance' as schools reopen

Dr. Mario Ramirez joins Andrea Mitchell to discuss the decline in testing across the country, particularly in hot spot states, and the impact it could have as schools start to reopen.

That test positivity needs to be around 5% for adequate surveillance."
