2. PCR is the gold standard that FDA uses as the benchmark for approving rapid tests.
3. Accuracy is critical both for symptomatic and asymptomatic patients. Not everyone who is infected with COVID-19 virus has symptoms of infection (Asymptomatic). Asymptomatic individuals with COVID-19 often have lower viral loads and thus need a more sensitive antigen test. All Comers refers to anyone who comes for testing whether they have symptoms or not.
