Proving
again that they are part of the problem, not part of the solution,
the FDA on March 21 shut down the at-home tests for COVID-19 that had
been developed by several companies. (A few days ago, they inhibited
the use of the successful drug chloroquine for use against COVID-19.)
The website techcrunch.com tells the story of the FDA’s shutdown of
at-home testing: While a number of companies who currently offer
at-home medical and health diagnostics had rushed to produce kits
that would allow for self sample collection by people who passed a
screening and believed they might have contracted the new
coronavirus, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has updated
its Emergency Use Authorization guidelines to private labs that
specifically bar the use of at-home sample collection. This means
startups including Everlywell, Carbon Health and Nurx will have to
immediately discontinue their testing programs in light of the
clarified rules.
