#1636: The science of at-home COVID testing | The Best of Our Knowledge
/

At-home testing for infectious diseases is a hot topic. The President has authorized the purchase of millions of at-home COVID-19 tests for Americans, but at-home testing is not new. At home tests for HIV and other sexually transmitted infections are already available, although they are a bit controversial. A number of questions remain regarding at-home test accuracy and ability to impact patient outcomes and public health while protecting patient privacy. Today on the Best of Our Knowledge, we’ll have a discussion with two laboratory scientists about the good, the bad, and the “we don’t quite know yet” of at home testing. https://www.wamc.org/show/the-best-of-our-knowledge
