Biden Announces Reimbursement for Self-Screening Tests | Coronavirus


The strategy unveiled before the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has nine components, including the reimbursement of home coronavirus testing by insurers, the tightening of testing deadlines for international travelers and the launch of a national campaign to encourage American adults to get a booster dose (a second or third injection, depending on the type of vaccine received).

Travelers who want to travel to the United States by air will therefore have to be tested for COVID-19 a maximum of 24 hours before the scheduled time of their departure, instead of 72 hours as is currently the case.

It is thanks to the combined advice of each of you that we have developed this plan, which does not involve closing the economy or confinement, but large-scale vaccination, booster doses, screening and even moreMr. Biden said in Bethesda, a Washington suburb in Maryland.

The Democratic President’s announcement coincides with the second case of the Omicron variant identified in the United States, more precisely in Minnesota, after a first case detected the day before in California.

We will fight this variant with science and speed, not chaos and confusion.

A quote from Joe Biden, President of the United States

Earlier this week, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) extended their recommendation of an additional booster shot to all Americans over 18. Until now, they have been advocating a booster dose for people over 50 and vulnerable people.
