The White House has told governors their leadership is critical in testing for coronavirus and provided a map showing that Oklahoma is one of four states with the lowest testing capacity in the United States.
Oklahoma, Oregon, Montana, and Maine are able to test fewer than 30 in 1,000 people a month.

An email sent by the White House coronavirus task force Monday shows that states with the highest testing capacity are Wyoming, Utah and Vermont. They can test over 90 in 1,000 people a month.
