testThe United States will “have a rather large number of tests that are available” within a week or so, says Anthony Fauci, director of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

  • Tests for coronavirus antibodies are being validated by the National Institutes of Health and FDA to make sure they are consistent and accurate, says Fauci
  • “As soon as they get validated, they’ll be out there for people to use”
