The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued an emergency authorization on Friday for a new coronavirus test that can deliver results in just 5 minutes and is so small that it can be used nearly anywhere.

Abbott Laboratories announced that their new test is the fastest test in the world, able to deliver “positive results in as little as five minutes and negative results in 13 minutes.”

“The test will run on the company’s ID NOW™ platform, providing rapid results in a wide range of healthcare settings such as physicians’ offices, urgent care clinics and hospital emergency departments,” Abbott Laboratories said in a statement. “The ID NOW platform is small, lightweight (6.6 pounds) and portable (the size of a small toaster), and uses molecular technology, which is valued by clinicians and the scientific community for its high degree of accuracy. ID NOW is already the most widely available molecular point-of-care testing platform in the U.S. today. ”

“The COVID-19 pandemic will be fought on multiple fronts, and a portable molecular test that offers results in minutes adds to the broad range of diagnostic solutions needed to combat this virus,” said Robert B. Ford, president and chief operating officer, Abbott. “With rapid testing on ID NOW, healthcare providers can perform molecular point-of-care testing outside the traditional four walls of a hospital in outbreak hotspots.”

CNBC reported that the company plans to start providing 50,000 of the newly approved tests per day for officials to use.

“The arrival of the Abbott ID NOW COVID-19 test comes a week after the company launched its Abbott m2000™ RealTime SARS-CoV-2 EUA test, which runs on the m2000™ RealTime System located in hospital and reference labs around the world,” the company added. “Between the two platforms, Abbott expects to produce about 5 million tests per month.”

Former FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb, MD, praised the announcement, hailing it as a game changer in the Trump administration’s fight against the coronavirus, which originated in China.

“This is GAME CHANGER,” Gottlieb wrote on Twitter. “Abbott to market, starting next week, a fast point-of-care #coronavirus test, delivering positive results in 5min and negative results in 13min. Will deliver 50K tests/day to start. Kudos to Abbott and FDA’s Jeff Shuren and team at CDRH who are in the fight.”

    Bella Pelosi, better known as Dracula. Sneaked in a 1 billion Dollar funding for Plan Parenthood (The abortion factory) and other things that have nothing to do with the Coronavirus bill. Evil and Devious indeed! Never let a crisis go to waste is one of the Demoncrat 10 Satanic Commandments.

    Wuhan Virus Bioweapon AKA: China Virus, Coronavirus weaponized by China and their treasonous Godless demoncratic Commie party and cohorts the fake media, academia, Hollywood, Millennials.RINOs..to crash the greatest US economy ever! And to take down the greatest president ever, President Trump!! Keep up the great work President Trump! 2020 and beyond! From the Patriots of a Commie Demoncrat free America!

    *SCENE 1 :
    The curtain opens: China becomes ill, enters a “crisis” and paralyzes its trade. The curtain closes.

    *SCENE II.*
    The curtain opens: The Chinese currency is devalued. They do not do anything. The curtain closes.

    *SCENE III.*
    The curtain opens:: Due to the lack of trade of companies from Europe and the USA that are based in China, their shares fall 40% of their value.

    *SCENE IV.*
    The curtain opens:: The world is ill, China buys 30% of the shares of companies in Europe and the US at a very low price. The curtain closes.

    *SCENE V.*
    The curtain opens: China has controlled the disease and owns companies in Europe and the US. And he decides that these companies stay in China and earn $ 20,000Billions. The curtain closes. How is the play called?

    *SCENE VI:*
    *Checkmate!*

    *Amazing but true*

    At first they were too prepared. Three weeks after the start of the roll, 14 days and a 12,000-bed hospitals were already under construction. And they really built them in two weeks.

    Awesome.

    Yesterday they announced that they had stopped the epidemic. They appear in videos celebrating, they announce that they even have a vaccine. How could they create it so quickly without having all the genetic information? Well if you are the owner of the formula it is not difficult at all.
    And today I just saw a video that explains how Den Xiao Ping gave the west a half stick. Due to the coronavirus, the actions of Western companies in China fell dramatically. China I just hope, when they went down enough they bought them. Now the companies, Created by the USA and Europe in China with all the technology put in by these exchanges and their capital they passed into the hands of China, which is now rising with all that technological potential and will be able to set prices at will to sell everything they need to the West. How are you?

    None of this could have happened by chance. China who cared that a few old men died? Fewer old-age pensions to pay, but the loot has been huge. And right now the West is financially defeated, in crisis and stunned by the disease. And without knowing what to do.

    Masterfully diabolic. It had to be the communists. |

    Adding to this, they are now the single largest owners of US treasury with 1.18 trillion holding surpassing Japan.
    An instrument that has seen the most rally

    One ☝ prospective & Analogy

    How come Russia & North Korea have Low or Zero incidence of Covid- 19 ?

    Is it because they are staunch allies of China

    On the other hand USA / South Korea / United Kingdom / France / Italy / Spain and Asia are severely hit

    How come Wuhan is suddenly free from the deadly virus?

    China says that the drastic initial measures that they took were very stern and Wuhan was locked down to contain the spread to other areas

    Why Beijing was not hit ? Why only Wuhan?

    It is interesting to ponder upon.. right ?

    Well ..Wuhan is open for business now

    Covid – 19 needs to be seen in the backdrop of the arm twisting of China by USA in the trade war

    America and all the above mentioned countries are devastated financially

    Soon American economy will collapse as planned by China.

    China knows it CANNOT defeat America militarily as USA is at present THE MOST POWERFUL country in the world.

    So use the virus…to cripple the economy and paralyse the nation and its Defense capabilities.

    I am sure Nancy Pelosi got a part in this…. to topple Trump….

    Lately President Trump has always been telling of how the GREAT American economy was improving on all fronts and jobs were coming back to the USA

    The only way to destroy his vision of making AMERICA GREAT AGAIN is to create an ECONOMIC HAVOC.

    Nancy Pelosi was unable to bring down Trump through impeachment…..so work along with China to destroy Trump by releasing a virus.

    Wuhan’s epidemic was a showcase.

    At the peak of the virus epidemic….China’s President Xi Jinping…just wore a simple RM1 facemask to visit those effected areas.

    As President he should have been covered from head to toe…..but that was not the case.

    He was already injected to resist any harm from the virus….that means a cure was already in place before the virus was released

    China’s vision is to control the World ECONOMY by buying up stocks now from countries facing the brink of severe ECONOMIC COLLAPSE…..Later China will announce that their Medical Researchers have found a cure to destroy the virus

    Now China shall OWN the stocks of All Western Alliances and these countries will soon be slave to their NEW MASTER….. CHINA

    About time. Now let’s make sure that millions (not thousands) of this system, and other similar systems, are produced. And that we can really use them, and that they really tell you the results.
