A new “rapid” coronavirus testing kit that promises results in as little as five minutes may be available sometime this week. That’s according to President Donald Trump, who made the revelation Monday during a coronavirus briefing in the White House Rose Garden. Calling the cartridge-based test “a milestone in our war against the coronavirus,” Trump said manufacturer Abbott Laboratories has already received emergency clearance from the Food and Drug Administration. Trump, who also revealed that 1 million U.S. residents have already tested for the virus, reiterated the importance of practicing social distancing during the pandemic. “By very vigorously socially distancing, we can save more than one million American lives,” he said. “The sacrifices we make will determine the fate of this virus and the fate of our victory.” Have you been tested? How should doctors weed out people who really don’t need to be tested?
