Dr. Amesh Adalja, an infectious disease specialist at Johns Hopkins University, joined Daily Caller White House correspondent Maranda Finney to help answer some complicated questions concerning COVID-19 testing and the uninsured population.

The United States is one of the most recent countries to declare COVID-19 a national emergency. Some countries, including the U.S., have attempted to curtail the mass spreading of the novel coronavirus by encouraging country-wide precautionary measures, such as suspending events and institutions that draw large groups of people and implementing drive-thru testing facilities.

After negotiating with insurance companies, President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence recently announced that insurance companies have agreed to waive the copay fee on COVID-19 testing and, if the insured individual tests positive, cover any fees incurred for medical treatment for the virus.

However, an important question remains: What about the uninsured? Dr. Adalja shares his thoughts on all of the above. (RELATED: Dr. Oz Shares Tips On How To Prevent Coronavirus)
