Did you get tested for Covid-19 at an alleged ‘pop-up’ Ventnor laboratory called Infinity Diagnostic? The FBI says to get retested, and to contact them asap.
Ventnor police accompanied FBI agents as they entered Infinity Diagnostic Laboratory at 6715 Atlantic Avenue.
Anyone who was administered a finger-prick blood test at that laboratory should contact the victim assistance unit at the FBI.
Finger-prick tests are used only to detect antibodies and not to diagnose active coronavirus cases, federal authorities said.
“As stated on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s website, ‘rapid’ finger prick blood tests for COVID-19 are antibody tests and should not be used for diagnosing active cases of COVID-19.”
“Only a test that uses a nasal swab or saliva should be used to diagnose active cases of COVID-19.”
“If you were recently tested for COVID-19 at Infinity Diagnostic Laboratory, located at 6715 Atlantic Avenue, Ventnor, you are urged to be retested as soon as possible,” the FBI wrote.
If you were tested using a finger prick blood test at that location, please contact the FBI at NK-Victim-Assistance@FBI.gov.
From BREAKINGAC.com: Several area residents who went to the testing site said they were told the regular test was covered by insurance, but that the rapid test they were given cost $75, and had to be paid in case or via Venmo. The Venmo payments were made to a Janice Nasuti, whose Linked-In lists her as a “phlebotomy supervisor” with Infinity. Public transactions via her Venmo show about 32 payments between May 19 and July 31 of this year that indicate things like “rapid test,” “blood test” or “covid test.”
