I had seen on the CNN crawl this morning something about “crappy” test kits that only require notification to the FDA that a company is going to market test kits. This should be concerning to any one not being tested using and FDA-approved test.
As stated in the news report: “”These nonapproved tests can produce false results and lead to unintended negative consequences for the individual and the broader community,” Dr. Nichole Quick said in a March 26 statement. “For example, a negative result from a nonapproved testing kit may lead an individual who in fact has Covid-19 to think they are healthy and not capable of spreading the virus.”
I get that regulations may be overbearing to some. However, when discussing this particular issue, maybe those who were so gung-ho to bash the FDA should reconsider exactly what they do provide.
