“Our revenue and operating margin outlook for 2020 is unchanged, but the economic and healthcare consequences of this pandemic are uncertain and could negatively affect our financial results later in 2020 and beyond, due to reduced non-COVID healthcare activities and global economic challenges. We are therefore widening the range of our 2020 EPS guidance to reflect both our underlying strong performance as well as future uncertainty; however, the long-term fundamentals of our business remain strong, as does our financial outlook for the mid-2020s and beyond.”
