U.S. could have capacity of 3 mln COVID-19 tests per day, HHS official says

Sept 16 (Reuters) - The United States could have a capacity of 3 million coronavirus tests per day this month, and scale as high as 135 million tests a month by October, a top health official told a U.S. Congress panel on Wednesday.

Half of the three million tests would be rapid point-of-care tests, said Admiral Brett Giroir, assistant secretary for health at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. (Reporting by Manas Mishra in Bengaluru and Carl O’ Donnell in New York; Editing by Shinjini Ganguli)
