Some Good News About Testing
The FDA recently approved a fast-acting test for people in hospitals
Over the weekend, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced that it authorized a coronavirus test that can provide a result in just 45 minutes. With the standard test, it takes one to four days to return a positive or negative result. The current testing method requires a nasal swab, but the new test doesn’t, which is a potential advantage as shortages of cotton swabs has been a concern.
