The Hill reports:
Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar maintained late Friday that the administration is not in the midst of a coronavirus testing kit shortage, contradicting a warning issued by Vice President Pence earlier this week.
“There is no testing kit shortage, nor has there ever been,” Azar said on ABC News . “We will have by the end of this weekend over 1.2 million tests around America in public health labs as well as in private and commercial labs, and that is scaling up by the millions, ramping up rapidly.”
