The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has brought the Bill Gates coronavirus testing program to a stop, pending reviews.
The program, which was sponsored by Bill Gates and Seattle health officials, sought to send tests to the homes of both sick and healthy people. A goal of the program was to get the United States to a high enough number of people tested to reopen the country. Thousands of tests had already been administered by the program, finding many cases that were previously undiagnosed.
More on the story from The Hill:
The Seattle Coronavirus Assessment Network (SCAN) said on its website that the FDA had asked it to pause testing while it receives additional authorizations but maintained its procedures are safe.
The FDA "recently clarified its guidance for home-based, self-collected samples to test for COVID-19. We have been notified that a separate federal emergency use authorization (EUA) is required to return results for self-collected tests," SCAN said. "The FDA has not raised any concerns regarding the safety and accuracy of SCAN’s test, but we have been asked to pause testing until we receive that additional authorization."
The pause is emblematic of the fractured national response to the coronavirus, with federal officials proposing guidelines but leaving much of the implementation and administration of tests to states and localities.
