Biden to send military teams to US states struggling with Covid spike
- President to purchase another 550m at-home Covid tests
- FDA chief says most Americans are going to be infected
Joe Biden plans to send 1,000 military medical personnel to hospitals and medical facilities, the president said on Thursday, as he announced plans to purchase another 500m at-home Covid tests.
The military members will begin arriving in states across the country next week, amid a surge in cases largely attributed to the Omicron variant. This week a top government official admitted it was likely that most Americans would be infected with the coronavirus.
