Medtech companies are manufacturing critical COVID-19 tests

Doctors, nurses and health care providers fighting on the front lines against the coronavirus are modern-day heroes. Every day they selflessly risk their own health to provide essential care to prevent, test for and treat this deadly virus. Behind the scenes, the medical technology industry is working around-the-clock to manufacture the critical supplies providers need to combat the virus. Across the country, manufacturers are adding shifts, ramping up alternative production lines and working overtime to produce personal protective equipment (PPE), ventilators and the diagnostic tests desperately needed on the front lines.
