Doctor Warns About Drive Thru Test Results

DOCTOR WARNS DRIVE-THRU COVID-19 TESTS MAY NOT PRODUCE QUALITY RESULTS

(CNN) – Drive-thru tests for COVID-19 may seem like a quick way to get answers, but doctors warn it may not provide the best results.

At an Infectious Diseases Society of America press event on Tuesday Dr. Angela Caliendo; a professor and executive vice chair at Alpert Medical School of Brown University, says clinicians providing the test may lack experience
and therefore not be able to get the best specimen.

Another issue, some people may not be far along enough in the illness for quality results.
