The United States Government has opened the door to home testing for COVID-19 by committing funds to a fast, reliable testing system. The Defense Department has contracted with an Australian firm to construct a manufacturing plant in the U.S. that will produce over 500,000 home use tests per day. The company, Ellume, announced the deal on Monday, February 1st, 2021.

Tests will be available for $30 or less and will use a short nasal swab. The system uses a  digital analyzer and is linked to a smartphone app. 

A total of 8.5 million tests will be provided to the U.S. federal government, and the Australian company will deliver 100,000 tests a month to the United States until the manufacturing facility is finished in America, Ellume said.

The Australians say that when it is fully operational, the U.S. facility will produce up to 19 million tests per month. The first shipments of tests will come to America this month, in February.
