Stop Testing for H1N1?
An article I found on the United Press International's Web site said the WHO is getting ready to tell countries to stop testing for the H1N1 virus.
Because these tests are flooding labs and making it hard for laboratorians to keep up, healthcare professionals may be asked to depend on a patient's symptoms to diagnose the illness instead of a lab test confirming this.
As laboratorians, what do you think of this? How much H1N1 testing have you been doing in your labs? Will this save you a lot of time? Do you think it could be detrimental to patients?
