IDPH Wants More COVID-19 Test Kits

As the state of Illinois wants to begin testing more people for COVID-19 the need is there for more testing kits. IDPH’s Dr. Ngozi Ezike said this week that the state only has about 2,200 testing kits but she wants more and is expecting more from the CDC but just when they are going to show up is an unknown.

Sentinel testing, used to determine if the virus is spreading among a community will use far more testing kits than what IDHP currently has.
