This week on Action 2 News this week, Preva’s President / CEO Dr. Ashok Rai indicated that it is most people who are already exhibiting symptoms who are undergoing tests. “You have to remember a negative test, it means that when we put that swab in our nose, you are negative. That’s why it is most important to test you when you have symptoms – any kind of symptoms – remember the list is very long. And this is the low limit to test. Or if you have been exposed to COVID-19 wouldn’t it be great if we could test everyone a lot? That would be pretty cool. There are no resources for that. “
