Florida Governor Ron DeSantis isn’t waiting around for the Biden administration to provide at-home COVID testing for Floridians —he’ll deliver them himself.
While appearing on Fox & Friends, Gov. DeSantis announced his plan to distribute one million at-home COVID tests to seniors. He also blasted the do-nothing Biden administration.
“The Biden administration promised they were going to send all these at-home tests,” DeSantis said. “They said all you had to do is go online and get it, and nothing has happened in a month and a half with doing that.”
“We’ve secured a million at-home tests,” he continued. “We’re going to be distributing them to nursing homes and long-term care facilities throughout the state of Florida and then to the broader senior communities throughout our population because we view testing as something that should lead to then a clinical result.”
The Biden administration is working on getting 500 million at-home COVID tests out to the American public, but they may not arrive for weeks.
“His promise was he would shut down the virus, and he’d demagogue Donald Trump every day,” DeSantis said. “He blamed Trump for COVID cases and deaths. He didn’t blame China, which is really where the blame belongs.”
DeSantis shared the news of his plan on Twitter:
“In Florida, we are continuing to put seniors first by providing one million at-home tests for residents of assisted living facilities and nursing homes.”
