ONEONTA, N.Y. - March 29, 2020 - PRLog -- Part of Progressive Primary Care Solutions, Inc.  (PPCS)'s ongoing mission is a focus and direct interest in securing equitable and fair market access to critical supplies and services in the healthcare space. Now was the time to add their expertise to the front line staff in rural areas and beyond. As a nurse of almost 20 years with experience from coast to coast, the CEO, Kathryn Murdock, understands the true impact this disease will have for all, bur particularly for smaller health systems if a faster test and more supplies are not available.

Murdock continues: "My fellow nurses are on the front lines of this pandemic and are not being supported by other companies through their bidding war techniques. This does nothing but put my friends, family, colleagues and fellow humans at risk. We also need to assure supplies are available for a long term fight. The cost savings on the process of lab specimen processing and the backlog will be relieved with this point-of-care test as well."

The urgent need is for a quick and accurate test to identify who is infected with the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 causing COVID-19. Under the current standard testing protocols, it usually takes several days to receive the results when tests can be accessed.

Another issue is that a person is often tested only after they exhibit symptoms. By the time they are tested, they may have unwittingly exposed others to the virus.

Now we have available an easy, accurate, rapid result COVID-19 test kit that can render results in only 10 minutes.

This US-based, easy-to-use method needs just a drop of blood from a finger stick as a sample for testing. Unlike expensive, lengthy testing methods that require a laboratory, this point of care (POC), cost-effective method can detect and diagnose COVID-19 disease on site. Not only does this reduce the burden on the healthcare workforce, but it also minimizes exposure for healthcare staff.

The faster we can detect and the more we can confirm the infection, the sooner we can flatten the curve.
