  • How They Blew It: Why Two Major Cities Are Dropping Google's COVID-19 Testing Program

    Gizmodo reports San Francisco and Alameda counties in California have stopped using Verily to test for the novel coronavirus. Google's health-centered sister company launched a $55 million pilot COVID-19 testing program earlier this year to set up mobile and stationary test sites.
