Are They Fn Kidding Us? key testing component is in short supply! [View all]

Heres the news. Too upset to add to it

Snip

In some cases, the shortage has prompted lab personnel to borrow components from colleagues who were using similar kits for testing unrelated to COVID-19, said Marc Lipsitch, a Harvard University epidemiologist.

The extent of the problem could not immediately be determined.
