COVID-19 test used in WH may be missing up to 50% cases - study

A preliminary study by New York University found that Abbott Laboratories coronavirus test, which is used by the White House, detected 48% less infections than the test made by rival Cepheid Inc.

A spokesman for Illinois-based healthcare company said the results of the study, which has not yet been peer-reviewed, "are not consistent with other studies of the test."

The company's antibody test received emergency authorization from the United States Food and Drug Administration earlier this week.
