In April 2020, the Company’s COVID-19 antibody test was one of the first to be granted Emergency Use Authorization ("EUA") by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ("FDA").
Then, on June 17, 2020, before the market opened, the FDA revoked the EUA for Chembio’s Dual Path Platform COVID-19 serology test due to concerns regarding the test’s accuracy. Specifically, the FDA found that the "benefits no longer outweigh its risks" and that "it is not reasonable to believe that the test may be effective" because it "generates a higher than expected rate of false results and higher than that reflected in the authorized labeling for the device."
On this news, the Company’s share price fell $6.04, or nearly 60%, to close at $3.89 per share on June 17, 2020.
If you purchased Chembio common stock during the Class Period, you may move the Court no later than August 17, 2020 to ask the Court to appoint you as lead plaintiff. To be a member of the Class you need not take any action at this time; you may retain counsel of your choice or take no action and remain an absent member of the Class. If you wish to learn more about this action, or if you have any questions concerning this announcement or your rights or interests with respect to these matters, please contact Charles Linehan, Esquire, of GPM, 1925 Century Park East, Suite 2100, Los Angeles California 90067 at 310-201-9150, Toll-Free at 888-773-9224, by email to email@example.com, or visit our website at www.glancylaw.com.
