Michelle Fay Cortez

Michelle Fay Cortez, a senior reporter on the health team at Bloomberg News, is moving to Hong Kong to be an editor on the health and consumer team.

She is currently based in Minneapolis.

Cortez has been with Bloomberg since 1992, with stints in Washington, where she covered the FDA, and London.

Her recent reporting has raised questions about the accuracy of Abbott’s rapid virus test, explained why antibodies may not be enough to protect us, given us a harrowing picture of what ventilators do to the human body, and walked through Gilead’s pricing dilemma.

Cortez is a graduate of William & Mary and previously worked at UPI and Market News Service.
