“Curative Tests in D.C.?”

5th and E Street, NW

“Dear PoPville,

I went and got tested at Judiciary Square last week I noticed they’re now using Curative tests. The next day I saw these headlines so just wanted to lift.”

From the FDA:

“The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is alerting patients and health care providers of the risk of false results, particularly false negative results, with the Curative SARS-Cov-2 test. Risks to a patient of a false negative result include: delayed or lack of supportive treatment, lack of monitoring of infected individuals and their household or other close contacts for symptoms resulting in increased risk of spread of COVID-19 within the community, or other unintended adverse events.”

From NBC News:

“But the new FDA warning questions the efficacy of tests administered by the start-up Curative just weeks after becoming readily available in November after a slew of positive cases among lawmakers.

“The FDA notice does not raise any doubts about the accuracy of a positive test result. The potential concern only relates to negative test results,” Dr. Brian P. Monahan, the lead Capitol Physician, wrote to House and Senate offices.”

From The Seattle Times:

“The Food and Drug Administration warned patients and healthcare providers this week about the potential risks of false negative results, specifically with Curative’s COVID-19 test.”
