Home Testing is essential to Expanding Coronavirus Testing Capacity
Due to the sudden and dramatic increase in the need for testing, a shortage currently exists in Corona testing kits. The shortage extends beyond the physical kits to testing facilities and their staff, as well as collection and lab testing. In addition, testing at healthcare facilities tasks those facilities at the time they need to direct resources to care and treatment.
Home testing for Coronavirus is essential to widespread testing. Scaling physical testing centers will help the situation but with a population of over $320M, America will require additional methods for testing people.
People with high risk characteristics, including those who have had contact with someone who has tested positive, or people who are displaying the symptoms on the CDC’s screening list, will need to be tested at healthcare facilities as part of the testing process.
Home testing for people who are not at high risk and those who are not displaying symptoms can further help the healthcare community and public policy makers to identify sources of the infection.
