The White House revealed on Wednesday that they had created a website that seels to help Americans locate coronavirus testing sites and medication, along with other pandemic resources.
The Biden administration called on the public to visit COVID.gov, which offers a so-called test-to-treat locator, an interactive map that allows users to search for lifesaving virus medication by address or zip code.
Sources said the site joins and links to the COVIDtests.gov portal that the administration launched in the winter to allow Americans to order free at-home rapid tests.
Tagging the website as a “one-stop-shop,” the White House said in a statement that the page would be available in English, Spanish, and simplified Chinese” and would “help all people in the United States gain even better access to life-saving tools.”
“The country is moving forward safely, and people are getting back to their normal routines,” the White House said.
“Protecting the American people from COVID-19 now and into the future relies on affordable and accessible tools like vaccines, treatments, tests, and high-quality masks,” the White House added.
Meanwhile, the administration has appealed to Congress to complete a request for $22.5 billion in COVID emergency funds that have so far gone unfulfilled.
The White House said that due to Congress’s failure to pass the COVID emergency funds, they decided to stop reimbursing health care providers who treat uninsured patients.
