COLUMBUS (WCMH) — The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center Clinical Laboratories has processed more than 500,000 COVID-19 tests since the beginning of the pandemic, according to a statement.
OSU reports that the Clinical Laboratory primarily processes tests taken by nasal swabs from Ohioans all over the state. More than 100 staff members process the tests 24 hours a day, seven days a week, according to the university.
“Our Clinical Laboratory team has been working around the clock every day of the week to ensure COVID-19 test results are available in a timely manner to clinicians and patients,” said Dr. JoAnna Williams, medical director of Clinical Laboratories.
The Clinical Laboratory began processing COVID tests in March 2020.
