FDA authorizes first at-home coronavirus test

The FDA announced Tuesday that it’s authorized the first at-home coronavirus test, a nasal swab kit that will be sold by LabCorp. Patients will swab their own nose using a testing kit, and will mail it in an insulated package back to the company. It will be made available first to health care workers, and is expected to go on sale to consumers in most states within weeks. The test kit costs $119.
