The COVID-19 coronavirus continues to affect lives on a daily basis. Businesses, churches, schools, and other public facilities are closing. Sporting events and meetings are canceled daily. News reports tell us how hospitals are grappling with limited testing capabilities. There seem to be more questions than answers, and if ever there was a time for answers, it is now. Joining TGen Talks to discuss COVID-19, is Dr. David Engelthaler, co-director of TGen North, the Pathogen and Microbiome Division of TGen located in Flagstaff, Arizona, who discusses the launch of a genomic-based test for COVID-19, and TGen’s collaborative work with the Arizona Department of Health Services to test for and identify pockets of COVID-19 across the state.
