Early CDC Test Kits Delayed Due To Contamination

EARLY CDC TEST KITS WERE DELAYED BECAUSE OF CONTAMINATION ISSUES, HHS REPORT AFFIRMS

(CNN) – An investigation indicates early Centers for Disease Control and Prevention coronavirus tests were probably contaminated.

The Department of Health and Human Services reviewed the problems with them.

A spokesperson says one of the reagents was likely the culprit.

He says the contamination didn’t cause any false positive or negative results.

But, it’s probably what delayed the CDC’s distribution of the tests.
