The U.S. Food and Drug Administration ordered a coronavirus testing program in Seattle to stop working.

The FDA said the Bill Gates-backed program must wait for additional approval from them.

According to Business Insider, the program offered at-home testing kits to Seattle-area residents.

The Seattle Coronavirus Assessment Network was testing 300 people a day before it was shut down.

Bill Gates said the program wasn’t meant to replace federal testing, but to learn more about COVID-19 and how it moves through the community.
