[continue]...On Feb. 29, the Food and Drug Administration announced that it was relaxing the restrictions for the use of diagnostic tests for SARS-CoV-2 developed by laboratories in the United States that meet the certification guidelines for high-complexity testing. The new policy allows these laboratories to begin using in-house developed clinical tests for the virus before obtaining the agencys approval through an emergency use authorization. The FDA noted that Rapid detection of COVID-19 cases in the United States requires wide availability of diagnostic testing to control the emergence of this rapidly spreading, severe illness. Laboratories developing their own tests are expected to apply for emergency use authorization from the FDA within 15 days.
Until the announcement, samples from throat and nasal swabs of possibly infected people were sent to public health agencies for testing with an assay developed and distributed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention through an emergency use authorization from the FDA.
Has this change by the FDA on February 29, 2020 been widely reported? This is great news and really good that Stanford University has its own test for patients at the university hospital.
"Anybody who right now and yesterday, anybody that needs a test gets a test. The tests are beautiful."

yeah, the FDA reg-relaxation regarding CMS and insurance reimbursement of privately developed COVID-19 testing instituted by pence’s task force is a REALLY big deal ...
Quest and LabCorp, the two giants in the U.S. med testing field have done what Stanford did: LabCorp has been able to test for COVID-19 since last Thursday (3/5/2020) and Quest will have theirs ready tomorrow (3/9/2020), so all this putative “shortage” of tests being promoted by the fake stream enemedia and the doom and FR gloomers who keep trying to incite panic on FR are full of shite!

Have not heard it.. thanks for posting. Now everyone who looks sick will ask for this. PCR tests are very expensive this has been an example on how regulations slow down everything. Roll back CLIA88 its not saving lives.
