US President Joe Biden has promisedthat Americans will soon be able to order free tests for Covid from a specially designed government website that is not yet available.
“We will have websites through which you can deliver them [тестовете] to his home, ”the president said of the 500 million home tests the government is buying over the new Omicron.
However, the details of the new website are unclear. White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki was quoted as saying by The Vergethat “we will have more information… including what the website looks like”. He added: “We will make the website available as soon as these tests are available.”
President Biden also explained that the administration is working with Google to make it easier for Americans to find test sites for the coronavirus. “We’ve made it easier for you to find a free test site for Covid near you on Google,” he said.
The idea is for people to just type in a phrase like “Covid test near me” in the Google search bar and “find a number of different places nearby where they can be tested.”
Google spokeswoman Lara Levin revealed that the arrangements described by the president are part of the company’s ongoing work since last year, “to make testing information (and then vaccines) available on Search and Maps.”
She added that the company continues to make updates as new data emerges. “We are constantly improving the information about Covid that we provide in Search and Maps. We recently made an update that added information on thousands more free testing sites and are working with the administration and government agencies in these areas.
