Not enough tests to meet anticipated demand: Pence

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence during a visit to a 3M plant that makes protective masks in Minnesota, told reporters the United States does not yet have enough coronavirus tests to meet the anticipated demand from the American public.

The United States does not yet have enough coronavirus tests to meet anticipated demand, U.S. Vice President Mike Pence said on Thursday, adding that the Coast Guard has delivered tests to a cruise ship off the coast of California.

"We don't have enough tests today to meet what we anticipate the demand going forward," Pence said during a visit to a 3M Co plant in Minnesota.

"We're focused very much on a cruise ship just off the California coast today.

The Coast Guard delivered a sufficient number of tests for the passengers on that ship." "As more Americans take an interest in this or have concerns about this, we want to make sure they have access to the coronavirus test as well and we've made real progress on that in the last several days."
