White House’s Free Tests Mostly Made in China

The Biden administration shipped out free COVID-19 at-home test kits to Americans this week, and many of them are made in China.

The testing kits are labeled “made in China” by iHealth Labs, a California subsidiary of Chinese medical equipment firm Andon Health.

Andon Health has obtained contracts worth about $2.1 billion with the US federal government and some state governments, according to the company’s filings and federal contract data. The Defense Department contributed $1.8 billion to the White House testing project.

President Joe Biden said last month that his administration would purchase 500 million COVID-19 tests to be distributed free of charge to Americans. Since the website used to distribute the tests went live just over a week ago, the White House said 60 million U.S. households have ordered free testing.

This isn’t the first time that coronavirus supplies have come from China during the outbreak. KN95 masks with “made in China” stamped on the side were presented to members of the House of Representatives.

Coronavirus supplies generated in China, the virus’s mother country, were unpopular among lawmakers.

The fact that the masks we are required to wear in the United States are made of plastic, according to House GOP Doctors Caucus Chairman Brad Wenstrup, R-Ohio, told Fox News. Our inability to defend and cure Americans without relying on adversaries is exemplified by the fact that Congress is made in China.
