Quest expects COVID-19 tests turnaround time at 'acceptable' levels by Sept

July 23 (Reuters) - Quest Diagnostics Inc said on Thursday it expects to get turnaround times for COVID-19 tests to "acceptable" levels by this September by boosting capacity and prioritizing the most at-risk patients.

The company on an earnings conference call said its turnaround time for non-priority testing is now as long as seven days and added it aims to increase COVID-19 diagnostic testing to 150,000 per day by next month. (Reporting by Dania Nadeem and Carl O' Donnell; Editing by Sriraj Kalluvila)
