Former associate chief counsel at the FDA and current Moritz professor Patricia Zettler was recently quoted in an article by The Washington Post titled, “Trump administration bars FDA from regulating some laboratory tests, including for coronavirus.”

“I think it’s pretty concerning,” Zettler said of the change. She said she was especially worried that it came over FDA opposition. “It makes me worry that this is going to have negative public health implications. Why is this coming right now?”
