US tested 894,000 for COVID-19 - health official

Assistant Secretary for Health Admiral of the United States Brett Giroir said during the Administration's Coronavirus Task Force press briefing the country tested 894,000 for COVID-19 as of Saturday.

Additionally, he said, with the Abbott Laboratories supplying 50,000 point-of-care tests daily starting April 2 the numbers will increase.

He noted, however, the priority remains on testing those who are showing symptoms of the disease but that everyone worried about the virus will hopefully be able to get tested soon.
