What you need to know about coronavirus testing

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic continuing to surge globally, there are new questions about testing, including what kind of tests are available and whether you should get one. As COVID-19 has reached pandemic status with almost 4 million confirmed cases in the United States alone, widespread availability of diagnostic testing is critical in helping identify and control the emergence of this rapidly spreading and serious illness. 

There is an enormous amount of information being reported about COVID testing — from at-home testing to portable/point-of-care tests with faster results — that it may be difficult to keep track of when and where these tests will be available.

Jason Smith, M.D., chief medical officer for UofL Health, gives us an in-depth look at coronavirus testing.
