Testing millions for coronavirus quickly

Health care entrepreneur Bobby Brooke Herrera, a New Mexico native who grew up just south of Las Cruces, may hold the key to testing millions of Americans to see if they are infected and spreading the coronavirus. His company, E25Bio, is currently pushing to get the Federal Drug Administration’s Emergency Use Authorization by September 1 to launch on the market. As of July 2020, the company has raised $12.92 million in funding from Venture Capital, National Institutes of Health, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Herrera was named among Forbes 2019 ’30 under 30′ for healthcare entrepreneurs.
