US President Joe Biden is coordinating a federal effort to fight the COVID-19 pandemic, with steps to expand testing and vaccinations, as reported National Post on Thursday.
Executive orders signed by Biden will establish a COVID-19 testing board to increase testing, while addressing supply shortfalls, establishing protocols for international travellers and directing resources to hard-hit minority communities.
According to the plan, the administration will expand vaccine manufacturing and its power to purchase more vaccines by "fully leveraging contract authorities, including the Defense Production Act."
Biden has pledged to provide 100 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine during his first 100 days in office.
