Despite reports of widespread delays, White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany is defending U.S. coronavirus testing — claiming that there is actually an abundance of supply.
Appearing on Fox & Friends Monday, the press secretary was confronted by host Ainsley Earhardt — who said that she’s spoken with friends who had difficulty getting a rapid coronavirus test.
“There is even in our testing system, as it currently stands, excess testing capacity,” she said. “Because some of the tests that do take a few days are not fully being utilized. So there’s excess capacity in the system.” This claim comes as major labs and states report lengthy wait times to get test results.
