RALEIGH, N.C. (WECT) – President Joe Biden briefly addressed the National Governor’s Association on a call regarding COVID-19 Monday morning.
“We’re gonna have your back in any way we can,” Biden said to the governors on the call.
After recapping the history of at home testing in the United States, Biden noted that the government worked with Google to let people search “Covid test near me,” to find testing. This is alongside pop-up sites in high-demand areas and over the counter, at-home Covid tests. He then restated his commitment to sending out 500 million at home tests, and his goal to make sure private insurance gives rebates to people who buy over the counter tests.
Furthermore, he noted how Federal Emergency Management Agency teams had provided ambulances to various states in response to the rising cases.
However, the live stream only included the president’s address to the governors and does not include back and forth discussion.
