Posted by in category: biotech/medical


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will soon issue new guidance clarifying that Americans can be tested for the coronavirus subject to a doctor’s orders.

Vice President Pence previewed the guidance during an off-camera briefing with reporters at the White House Tuesday evening, explaining that some local officials were given the false impression that tests could only be administered to patients who were more than mildly symptomatic.

“We will issue new guidance from the CDC that will make it clear that any Americans can be tested, no restrictions, subject to doctor’s orders,” Pence said.
