Non-conventional | Homeland Security Digital Library | ID: grc-740424
ABSTRACT
From the Document "Rapid turnaround of testing for COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] infection is essential to containing the pandemic. Ideally, test results would be available the same day. Our findings indicate that the United States is not currently performing testing with nearly enough speed. In our large (19,058 respondents) national survey, conducted between July 10 and 26, we asked whether respondents had been tested for COVID-19 and how long they had waited to get results. Our

finding:

37% of those who had been tested by nasal swab received results within 2 days, and the average wait time was 4.1 days;with 31% of tests taking more than 4 days, and 10% 10 days or more. Further, there are few signs that turnaround times are diminishing. For individuals who responded that their last test had been in April, they had waited on average 4.2 days to get results;and for individuals tested in July, 4.1 days."
