Dr. Anthony Fauci said everyone who needs a test will be able to get a test by the end of May or beginning of June.
"Everyone who needs a test, according to the way we're approaching the identification, isolation, contact tracing, keeping the country safe and healthy, that hopefully we should see that as we get towards the end of May, the beginning of June," he told CNN's Jake Tapper on Tuesday.
He said that timeline was given to him by the groups responsible for the testing.
“I take them for their word. If that doesn’t happen, I am going to go to them and say, 'What happened? Why didn’t it happen? How could we fix it?'" Fauci said.
He said needing a test is much different than just wanting a test.
"A lot of times people say, I want a test, and it’s not part of a strategic approach. But needing is important," he said.
