AFP: FDA Approval of Rapid At-Home Diagnostic Test a Step in the Right Direction

12.15.20 01:53 PM

Arlington, Va.*– Following the*announcement*today that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued an emergency use authorization for the first over-the-counter fully at-home diagnostic test for COVID-19, Americans for Prosperity (AFP) praised the decision and urged the agency to continue pursuing reforms that will allow America to recover stronger. AFP Senior Health Policy Fellow Dean Clancy issued the following statement: “Although long overdue, the FDA’s move to authorize at-home diagnostic tests*without a doctor’s prescription*is*a welcome and*important step toward shortening the pandemic and saving lives. Frequent rapid-testing will*enable us to know whether we are contagious and give us*a*critical*piece of*information necessary to get our lives back to some semblance of normal.*With*widespread vaccination*still*months away,*America needs a bridge strategy*to*slow*the spread of the virus*and save even more lives while we await population-wide immunity.*Today’s announcement empowers individuals to take responsibility for their health and gives us a vital tool that’s been missing for too long.*In addition to easing testing restrictions,*the FDA should*also*speed up vaccine approvals, remove the regulatory barriers around promising*but*not-yet-approved*therapies, and*allow*manufacturers*to*share*valid scientific*data with*prescribers*about*promising*off-label uses*of FDA-approved*therapies.”
