NC Health News: Coronavirus Testing Ramps Up, But Lags Behind Other Nations
Coronavirus testing is ramping up in North Carolina and across the country. But it still lags behind almost every other developed country in the world.
Thousands of tests are still in the pipeline here in the state. That number will jump considerably, as local health departments, doctor offices, academic medical centers and others ramp up their own testing sites.
WUNC's Dave DeWitt speaks with N.C. Health News founder and head editor Rose Hoban about testing and other issues. Hoban is also a registered nurse and has a master's in public health. She will be joining WUNC regularly to discuss the Covid-19 pandemic.
