Mayo Clinic increasing COVID-19 testing on all fronts

As the Mayo Clinic ramps up their testing capacity, they are also working together with hospitals statewide to help get Minnesota back to work. Dr. Eli Theel says first and foremost they have to sort out what type of tests are most beneficial.

Theel indicated that both molecular and and serology tests are key to painting a picture of how much of a handle we have on COVID-19.

Theel stated the Mayo can perform seven thousand molecular tests each day to determine if someone is actively infected, along with 10-thousand daily tests to determine if someone has already had the virus and recovered.
