The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is funding a project to provide at-home coronavirus test kits to those at risk of infection in the Seattle, Washington, area. 
According to the Seattle Times, it’s unclear when the at-home testing project will launch, though the foundation is moving quickly to upgrade its software and finalize its online questionnaire to prepare for an expected influx of requests. 
Bill Gates has been warning about the risk of a pandemic disease for years and his foundation pledged $100 million last month to fight the coronavirus outbreak.

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is supporting a project that will provide at-home coronavirus test kits to those at risk in the Seattle area, which has been hard-hit by the coronavirus outbreak in the US. 

Scott Dowell, leader of coronavirus response at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, told the Seattle Times that the goal of the project is to eventually be able to process thousands of tests a day. The kits will allow people who are concerned that they may have been infected to swab their noses and send the samples back for testing. See the rest of the story at Business Insider
