    ITS FAILING. Theres a few reasons but we knew it was going to have horrible sensitivity. It and the people that are using this specific test can be fixed but its results will still be questioned and its going to result in mortality. For every negative that goes home thinking they are ok, its one more spreader!!! There cannot be such crazy levels of false negatives and then to act like its ok!!!! FIX IT ABBOTT!!!!

    Yes, Pelosi is responsible for the Covid-19 mass extermination, she focused on Impeachment and not on the American peoples health.

    Trump is not busy , world health organisation lied to Usa that corona is not spreading through human to humans.And also world health organisation told that dont seal your borders and trump blindly believed in world health organisation at that time.Same happened with UK , india , switzerland , netherlands and all other countries.
    And now all countries sees china and world health organisation having some connectiom for spread.And then trump stopped funding to the world health organisation and suddenly big news came into the eyes of peoples that trump denied funding for world heskth organisation , but bill gates donated world health organisation a big amount of money.
    So who is enemy of humans now ?Who is behind spreading virus?

    Wait…the current test is only 30-50% accurate? Isn't that less accurate than flipping a coin?

    Why aren't these test kits being made available right now in hospitals & long term care facilities. Who is benefiting financially from delaying or restricting their use? WHO Bill? Follow the money. There's billions up for skimming & misappropriation.

    LIES…LIES..5 MINUTES ..NO FREAKING WAY….LOOK AT TAIWAN..SINGAPORE….As much as we would like to use rapid lateral flow assays (IgM/IgG) because of convenience, NONE of the lateral flow assays have used the industry standard PRNT assay. In other words, we have no idea how good they are despite their claimed sensitivity and specificity. The biggest danger is that because it takes 5 to 10 days to make IgM antibody, the test has a high FALSE NEGATIVE rate in those who just started having symptoms. And so you will get a FALSE SENSE OF SECURITY and end up passing the virus to other people and your family members….YOU NEED A SWAB TEST AND RESULTS WILL TAKE DAYS TO A WEEK.

    I pity myself for spending and wasting 5 minutes of my time on this misinformation (orange man bad). President Trump installed a travel ban from and to China before any other western nation. Remember the media calling him a racist for doing so. The same is true for his recommended travel ban with, first, Italy and then other European nations, and do we remember the media, not reporting, but promoting the notion that it was over-reacting on Trump's part, as Italian politicians did campaigns urging people to gather on streets and hug Chinese people and Germany, The Netherlands, Great Britain and other western European countries did NOT suggest any social distancing, quarantine, reductions in travel or business activity. Yes, at that same time the US shut all schools, shut many businesses and promoted working from home.
    The only countries that reacted faster and were better prepared with supplies and citizen readiness and information than Trump in the US are countries that (1) are in much closer approximation to China and thus face greater exposition and (2) countries where the government and citizens have greater experience levels with recent virus outbreaks like SARS and N1H1, countries like South Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong, etc.
    Sane intelligent Americans will not stand for the misinformation of Trump's actions.

    If they claim to have contain this virus somehow in the time that they’ve been sayin, then that means that there was never a virus in the first place! This is very fishy. And trump sounds so guilty every time he speaks. Wow it’s so obvious to me. I can’t be the only one who sees this

    Corona is a new virus that exists in China, this disease is very dangerous even to the point where it is transmitted between humans and each other, but is allowed to pass through humans as for animals that can also transmit this virus. Therefore, now China has decided to lock the city of God to avoid this virus. This decision was made to prevent corona disease besides, markets in China were also temporarily closed. Besides China, Japan also said that companies must keep returning with caution, but in their spare time people must keep social distance.
    1.General structure :
    In the United States more than 100,000 people have been infected with the coronavirus; that's more confirmed cases than in any other country. But according to health experts the country needs to do more testing to reveal the extent of the outbreak. To help achieve that, the US Food and Drug Administration has approved a new rapid test from Abbott Laboratories. The company says the test can detect Covid-19 in about five minutes and is so small that it can be used in almost any healthcare setting. Is it too good to be true?
