Media Statement: Tracking Mutations of the SARS CoV2

We have been regularly tracking mutations of the virus throughout the pandemic to determine the impact it would have on our PCR sensitivity. To date, we have not seen any impact. Our current capacity for PCR tests is 270k and we continue to operate with a 1-2 day turnaround. The only way to identify the strain is by sequencing, and we have research support underway that includes sequencing of the virus.
