IU Health doctor slams U.S. testing strategy

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (ADAMS) – A doctor at IU Health says getting a coronavirus test in the United States is harder than it should be.

Doctor Paul Calkins says other countries have a much more efficient testing system. He said you can get tested for free, almost anywhere in many counties.

Calkins says, in the U.S., people can’t find enough at-home tests, and when they do they cost around $30. Calkins says the federal government needs to make a testing strategy more of a priority.
