FDA Approves Potential Corona Turning-Point – New Virus Test Gets Results In Under An Hour

Believe it or not, there is lots of good news out there, right now. Just don’t go to the mainstream media if you want to know about it.

The American people were hit hard by this virus. But we are hitting back harder.

Companies are revving up to produce life-saving equipment for hospitals. Even alcoholic beverage companies are making hand sanitizer.

Restaurants are delivering food. Grocery stores are hiring more people to meet demand.

And now we are learning the FDA has approved a new item that could turn this around very quickly.

From Washington Examiner:

The Food and Drug Administration approved a coronavirus test that will give results in less than an hour.

The test, made by Cepheid, will be rolled out on March 30. The company said the test has “a detection time of approximately 45 minutes.” Existing tests delivered results within days.

The new tool can also test patients at the bedside.

The FDA approved a new coronavirus test that will give results in less than an hour.

In fact, the test from company Cepheid can deliver results in “approximately 45 minutes.” Imagine what this means for testing and treating the disease?

Testing for the disease is a major factor in containing the spread. If we can quickly detect an infected person, we can move that much faster to treat and quarantine.

This means, our medical workers will have less of a burden, with faster testing. It also means they will be safer, when dealing with patients.

A faster test means we can get a clearer picture of this virus spread. We can direct aid to the areas most hit and better protect communities.

Isolating where and how this thing spreads is crucial. It could mean a quicker return to normal, in time.

This wouldn’t have been possible, if it weren’t for President Trump. We’ve learned in recent days how he pushed the FDA to cut through the red tape.

He urged the agency to sped up their approval process, so that new tests and treatments can reach hospitals in weeks not months, hours not days.

And it looks like he’s making things happen.

SHARE to tell everyone about this big development!
