Theranos reportedly lays off most of its remaining employees as it tries to avoid bankruptcy
Techcrunch ---------- The death spiral of blood-testing startup Theranos just became even more real today for the bulk of its remaining employees. The Wall Street Journal reports that the company has laid off the majority of its staff as part of a “last-ditch effort” to save cash and avoid bankruptcy.

This spartan crew has been whittled down following round after round of layoffs as customers and regulators have wised up to the lies that the company has been publicly sharing.
