Dr. Craig Spencer of New York-Presbyterian Columbia Medical Center told “Bill Hemmer Reports” Tuesday that a new at-home coronavirus test approved by the FDA will be “important” and “helpful” he advised against “relying on this too much” in the absence of information about its accuracy.

The FDA announced earlier Tuesday that it had reissued an Emergency Use Authorization for LabCorp to permit testing of samples that were self-collected by patients in their home using LabCorp’s Pixel by LabCorp COVID-19 Test home collection kit.

So, with these tests you can use a nasal swab and send it back to the lab to determine if you have the antibodies or not.

Spencer then proceeds to say that no test is accurate and should not be an indication to go back to a normal lifestyle

Moreover, this test just steps towards flattening the curve and increase the efficiency of the testing, this comes after the massive outbreak New York is facing.

“We know that this is going to be the way to safely reopen back the economy, not just in New York, but all over the country. I see the health impact of this disease … and I also see and understand the economic impact it’s having,

“The White House has a plan,” Spencer said. “We need a decreasing case [number] for weeks, we need way more testing, way more frequently for basically everyone that is going to be exposed over the next couple of months.”
