Baldwin looks to increase testing, improve turnaround

Wisconsin U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin wants to make sure those who want to know if they are COVID-19 carriers are able to get tested and find out quickly. Baldwin and many of her Democratic colleagues have called on the administration to utilize the Defense Production Act and make improvements to the supply chain to help get COVID-19 testing supplies into the hands of more people. She says some of the delays can be contributed to testing supplies not being standardized.



Baldwin says in this case, have a national testing strategy for COVID-19 would keep states from competing against each other for the necessary supplies and streamline the process. The Medical Supply Transparency and Delivery Act would also add reporting measures and oversight of the supply chain for the needed l equipment.
