  • FDA issues warning on accuracy of Abbott’s rapid coronavirus test after study finds false negatives
  • The U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued an alert on Thursday saying there is early data that suggests  Abbott Labs’ rapid coronavirus diagnostic test for Covid-19 may be delivering inaccurate results.
  • Specifically, the Abbott ID NOW test may return false negative results, the FDA said.

     researchers at New York University said it was missing a third to almost half of the positive cases.
