US without 'adequate' Covid-19 tests this winter due to congressional inaction, White House says

White House Covid-19 Response Coordinator Dr. Ashish Jha announced on October 11 that the US does not have an "adequate" number of Covid-19 tests due to a lack of congressional funding.

The US does not have an "adequate" number of Covid-19 tests with winter approaching, due to a lack of congressional funding, the White House's coronavirus response coordinator said Tuesday.

"No doubt about it that our response has been hampered by that lack of funding," Dr. Ashish Jha said at a White House briefing.
