FDA Authorizes Nonprescription Test for Covid-19, Flu and RSV

The Food and Drug Administration has authorized the first over-the-counter test that can detect Covid-19, respiratory syncytial virus and influenza, or RSV.

The test, developed by Laboratory Corporation of America Holdings, can be sold directly to consumers online or at retail.

The test, called Labcorp’s Seasonal Respiratory Virus DTC RT-PCR Test, looks for and amplifies the genetic material of many viruses to find which virus a person may be harboring .
