COVID Testing Volume at Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory

NPR (Sept. 3) – On Monday, the Veterinary Diagnostic Lab at the Urbana Champaign campus processed just over 18,000 samples, according to Timothy Fan, a professor of Veterinary Clinical Medicine. “To give you perspective, that is about 20% of all COVID-19 testing that is done in the state of Illinois on a daily basis,” Fan said. “It is about one and a half to 2% of all COVID-19 testing that is performed in the United States on a daily basis.”
