White House To Buy 150 Million Covid-19 Test Kits

The White House announced on Thursday the purchase of 150 million rapid coronavirus tests from Abbott Laboratories, which a day earlier was granted emergency approval from the Food and Drug Administration for a new $5 test that can be run in 15 minutes.

The $750 million deal with Abbott came just days after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, reportedly under pressure from top Trump administration officials, moved to discourage testing for people who don’t show Covid-19 symptoms — even if they’ve recently been exposed to the virus. Many public health experts denounced that decision, saying it would make it harder to track and fight the virus.

Described as “rapid, reliable, highly portable and affordable” in a statement released on Wednesday, Abbott’s new device, called the BinaxNOW Covid-19 Ag Card, is a bit like a pregnancy test. It is meant to detect pieces of coronavirus proteins on a credit-card-size device that doesn’t require laboratory equipment.

    • Nobody died from covid, they died from other sicknesses and a few from the 5G radiation, aka corona. Whatever it is, it’s not contagious.

  1. Are you Jewish? You do not care that a single person, let alone 9210 in the USA only, died?
    Anyway, I am one among those who have some other preexisting “illness” or “condition” (like most people who ever were seen by a medical doctor). If the whole economy of the mighty USA has to shut down completely so that I may live one extra week or day, so be it. I have lots of things to do and am not going to be led to my slaughter by you nazi lowlifes who would like to exterminate “weak” humans. You can do whatever you want.
