For the most up-to-date news and information about the coronavirus pandemic, visit the WHO and CDC websites. As demand for rapid at-home COVID test kits soars, many drugstores and online suppliers are out of stock, and states and the federal government are taking matters into their own hands.
If that happens, and countries across the world continue to roll out booster campaigns, U.S. officials fear the world might not have enough vaccine doses to meet the WHO's goal of inoculating 70 percent of the global population by the middle of next year.
