The US states hit the hardest by the coronavirus outbreak are struggling to make testing for the virus widely available.
The top United States official on infectious diseases, Anthony Fauci, said on Thursday that people could not get tests for the deadly coronavirus easily and the US testing system is not meeting the country’s needs.
“The system is not really geared to what we need right now … That is a failing. Let’s admit it,” Fauci told a House panel. “The idea of anybody getting it easily the way people in other countries are doing it, we’re not set up for that. Do I think we should be? Yes. But we’re not.”
