Before COVID, at-home tests were considered an anomaly. But in the wake of the pandemic, people are starting to wonder why they aren't more common. At-home flu testing could solve a lot of problems: getting the right medication to people infected after the onset of the symptoms, avoiding copay and the overall convenience of knowing whether you have an infection.

This segment aired on November 23, 2022.
