“Specifically, [Dr. William] Morice said, the clinic had the ability to produce 8,000 molecular or diagnostic tests daily, and 10,000 serological tests. ‘Basically,’ he said, ‘we will be able to provide much of that to the state here going forward.'”

“During a call with reporters on Tuesday, Walz said he had spoken with Mayo Clinic CEO Gianrico Faruggia on Monday evening about Mayo’s testing capacity, adding however that ‘we’re not overly optimistic we can overcome all of the reagents now experiencing shortages.'”

“Soon thereafter in the same press call, state Health Commissioner Jan Malcolm asserted that news would soon be forthcoming about an expanded Mayo role in meeting the state’s new high-volume testing expectations required to lift the closure and return Minnesotans to work.”
