The US has enough tests and supporting material to accommodate the first phase of the White House’s plan to reopen the country, according to a member of the administration’s coronavirus task force.

“We are confident that we have enough tests for phase one of the reopening America plan but we do acknowledge the fact that we need to keep the pressure on developing more tests, getting more tests out there,” White House coronavirus task force member and FDA commissioner Dr. Stephen Hahn told CNN during a global town hall on Thursday evening.

Hahn said the administration’s appraisal is based on the 1.1 million tests now being performed weekly.

He added the task force is working with members of Congress and state governors to “identify” and “fill” gaps for supporting matter like agents and swabs.
