Statement by Mike Pence and an article by The Atlantic confirms that the U.S. does not have an adequate number of testing kits for Coronavirus.
U.S. Vice President Mike Pence during a visit to a 3M plant that makes protective masks in Minnesota told that the United States does not yet have enough coronavirus tests to meet the anticipated demand from the American public.
The Atlantic reported that U.S. administration officials have stated that they have sent millions of testing kits to state labs and hospitals, but a majority of Americans still cannot get tested, as interviews with doctors, patients, and dozens of state public-health officials reveal. An ongoing investigation co-led by The Atlantic gives that 16,471 people have been tested for the coronavirus in the United States so far.
It proves that the U.S. does not have enough test-kits to meet the immediate demands of people in case of mass infections.
