US: George Floyd Protestors Asked to Be Tested for Covid-19 by Officials

  • After almost two months of lockdown, New York is to reopen. The curfew which was in place due to protests of police brutality and racial injustice is lifted. However, the demonstrators were asked for Covid-19 testing. New York Gov Andrews Cuomo urged people who have been participating in rallies and marches in memory of George Floyd saying "Get a test. Get a test,". He also confirmed that the state would open 15 testing sites committed to protestors so they can get results quickly. The same free testing facility has been provided for the demonstrators in Seattle, San Francisco and Atlanta as well.
