'Totally unacceptable': Testing delays force labs to prioritize COVID tests for some, not others

Covid testingDr. Howard Koh, a professor at Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health and former Department of Health and Human Services Assistant Secretary during the Obama administration, said the testing shortage has created a pattern of unequal access.

“Some privileged parts of our country are getting daily access and others have no access at all,” Koh said. “We’re never going to solve this pandemic until we give everybody access, particularly high-risk groups. That’s the public health principle we always try to follow.”

Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said testing delays are "totally unacceptable" and need to be fixed.

Speaking at forum hosted Wednesday by the Harvard public health school , Fauci said in some communities "the gap between the time you get the test and the time you get the result, in some respects, obviates the reason why you did the test ... We’ve got to correct that."
