Quest Diagnostics to launch coronavirus test service

March 5 (Reuters) - U.S. lab operator Quest Diagnostics Inc said on Thursday it was launching a test service for coronavirus, a day after the Trump administration met with private lab test developers to discuss increasing the availability of diagnostics.

Quest said it would be in position to receive specimens for testing and begin to provide testing next week. (Reporting By Mrinalika Roy in Bengaluru; Editing by Ramakrishnan M.)
