Approved a five-minute test for coronavirus

The company Abbott Laboratories starts the production.

Abbott Laboratories said it has received approval from federal regulators to begin mass production of a coronavirus test that can produce results within minutes.

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) urgently approved the tests.

Abbott Laboratories plans to start distributing tests next week and increase production to 50 thousand per day. The test allows you to get a positive result in five minutes, and a negative result in 13 minutes.

Last week, the FDA approved the use of a test developed by Cepheid.
