The Connecticut Department of Public Health disclosed on 20 July that 90 people who were told they tested positive for the virus did not in fact have it.
A flaw was discovered in a testing system. Many of the erroneous results were with nursing home residents.
Acting Commissioner of the state’s public health department, Deidre Gifford, stated, “We have notified the healthcare facilities for everyone who received a false positive test result from our state laboratory. Accurate and timely testing for the novel coronavirus is one of the pillars supporting effective response to the COVID-19 pandemic.”
She added that all nursing home residents who received erroneous results would be retested. The flaw was reported to the company, which manufactured the testing protocol, as well as to the FDA.
