Test kit production delay came after contamination at CDC lab, report says

As per The Washington Post, the CDC was delayed in quickly producing a test kit for the COVID-19 after contamination was found at some of its facilities. The contamination is believed to have occurred after chemical mixtures were assembled into the kits in the same lab space that was handling synthetic COVID-19 material. Officials were forced to take more than a month to resolve the mix-up.

The CDC made the decision to create their own text kits instead of using the ones from the WHO. Smart idea IMO since China had just proven that the kits they were sending were highly faulty. The execution could have been better though.

Gotta hand it to the CDC. Instilling confidence at every opportunity.
