(FOX NEWS) -- U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams told "Hannity" Tuesday the country has "turned the corner" on coronavirus testing and will start to collect necessary information about the trajectory of the virus as more tests become available to the public.
"There is in fact good news," Adams said. "We turned the corner on testing, we have now done more testing in the last eight days than [South] Korea has done in eight weeks. That will give us ... better information."

Adams said the decreasing number of cases in China and Italy prove the effectiveness of social distancing and echoed President Trump in expressing the hope that coronavirus restrictions could be scaled back "sooner than we thought."
