Pence Gets Torched For Boasting About Having 2,500 Coronavirus Test Kits For A Nation Of 330 Million People

Vice President Mike Pence appeared to be proud to announce that the United States is finally sending out coronavirus test kits across the nation. That would be tremendously great news, but the problem is that there are only 2,500 kits for a nation of over 330 million people.

According to PBS News’ Yamiche Alcindor, Pence said that he was “pleased to report we have 2500 kits available that we will distribute” in the coming days. Medical experts say that each kit will allow for 500 tests, which means that labs should be able to conduct 1.25 million tests with them overall.

Even with 1.25 million tests available, that’s only enough for less than 1% of the entire U.S. population.

People were quick to notice the small amount and decided to call Pence out.
