NPR seeks full truth about failed Covid-19 test kits

National Public Radio sued the Department of Health and Human Services on November 12 for public records concerning the knowing distribution of flawed Covid-19 test kits in early February to labs across the U.S. The flawed kits slowed the fight against the disease leading to deaths that could have been prevented.

When confronted with reports of the flawed test kits, Center for Disease Control Director Robert Redfield said there was a manufacturing problem, but CDC found that the CDC lab that produced the test kit used the wrong quality standards, and then the CDC sent out the test kits in spite of a finding that the kits failed to work a third of the time.
