Update (1100ET): With Washington State health officials expected to brief reporters tonight, we will hopefully have more information about the latest reported coronavirus case in the US – another case that’s believed to be “of unknown origin” – meaning it could be evidence of an emerging community outbreak.

But before we go, we’d like to leave readers with a few thoughts courtesy of Dr. Scott Gottlieb, the former FDA director and frequent CNBC contributor.

Remember: This shortage of coronavirus tests won’t last forever.

“By the end of next week we should have the the capacity to test 10,000 Americans a day,” @ScottGottliebMD says on @CNBC special report just now. “Once we have that capacity in place and doctors are ordering more tests we’re going to find more positives.” #COVID19

Tonight administration announced they are allowing high complexity U.S. labs to advance their own tests for #Coronavirus. Coupled with public health labs, which will be at full tilt by Friday using revised CDC test, capacity could reach 10,000+++ tests a day in next two weeks.

Sleep well.
