Bloomberg QuickTake: Now published this video item, entitled “Trump Announces Shipping Millions of Rapid Covid-19 Tests for States” – below is their description.
President Donald Trump announced plans to distribute millions of Abbott Laboratories’ 15-minute Covid-19 tests in the coming weeks, a move aimed at expanding access and helping reopen schools that are seen as key to getting parents back to work. The federal government expects to ship 150 million of the Abbott rapid tests, based on states’ populations, Trump said Monday in a press conference at the White House. The country has already conducted 100 million Covid-19 tests as of last week, he said. “In a short period of time, my administration has built the most advanced testing system in the world, there’s never been anything like this,” he said. The White House will encourage states — which have ultimate discretion over how to deploy the tests — to use about 100 million to screen teachers, check symptomatic children to see if they have contracted the virus, or conduct baseline surveillance.Bloomberg QuickTake: Now YouTube Channel
