BREAKING 🚨 Biden admin’s health officials are privately warning test makers and labs that demand for Covid-19 tests could double or even triple over the next two months as Omicron cases surge across the country. – Politico

Biden administration health officials are privately warning Covid-19 test makers and laboratories that demand for tests could double or even triple over the next two months as cases surge across the country, five people with knowledge of the matter told POLITICO.
Internal modeling developed by the Health and Human Services Department’s Testing and Diagnostic Working Group projects that the nation’s supply could be stretched by the need to conduct 3 to 5 million tests per day by late January or early February — a sharp increase from current daily levels of more than 1.6 million.
The estimate hinges on assumptions that the Omicron variant is three to five times more transmissible than Delta, and that it will become the nation’s dominant Covid-19 strain within four weeks, one of the people said.
That possibility has fueled concern among Biden officials about whether the manufacturing of lab-based PCR, professional point-of-care and at-home tests will be able to keep pace with a sudden rush in demand. HHS officials have shared the modeling with the diagnostics industry in recent days, the people with knowledge of the matter said, but have yet to publicly signal plans for additional initiatives to boost supply.
