Seventy coronavirus testing sites have been destroyed across the country in recent riots that have followed the death of George Floyd, Dr. Deborah Birx said in a Monday conference call with governors.

Birx, who has helped to lead the Trump administration's response to coronavirus, advised the governors to "scramble now to make sure there is testing available in urban areas."

Urban areas have been hardest hit by the recent rioting and looting.

Vice President Mike Pence also said during the call that a potential jump in the number of coronavirus cases caused by the demonstrations is "an issue our team is following and there is a concern."
