Virus Outbreak New Testing Option

Virus Outbreak New Testing Option

FILE - This Aug. 2, 2018, file photo shows the U.S. Food and Drug Administration building behind FDA logos at a bus stop on the agency's campus in Silver Spring, Md. A new type of coronavirus test offers a cheaper, quicker way to screen for infections, moving the U.S. toward the kind of mass screening that experts say is essential to returning millions of Americans to school and work. But the first so-called antigen test announced Saturday, May 9, 2020, by the FDA is not quite the kind sought by top government health officials. It is less accurate than the current gold-standard for testing and can only be run on specialized equipment. (AP Photo/Jacquelyn Martin, File)
