Maryland lawmaker seeks investigation of state’s purchase of COVID tests from South Korean company

May 17, 2021

Larry Hogan’s splashy $9 million purchase of 500,000 tests from LabGenomics in April 2020 came early in the pandemic, when tests were hard to come by, and he touted the deal as an example of creative thinking and hard work during an emergency.
