I bought a new laptop last week and yesterday Kaspersky nearly caused me a heart attack by reporting one of my SSDs was at 0% health. Hard disk sentinel and HWInfo both report the SSD as 100% health. Anything I can do to fix this or should I just turn off Kaspersky's disk monitoring in that computer? Kaspersky is updated and so are all the drivers and it was correctly reporting 100% health until yesterday.

It's possible that Kaspersky's disk monitoring feature may be incorrectly reporting the health of your SSD. Since Hard Disk Sentinel and HWInfo are both reporting the SSD as 100% health, it's likely that Kaspersky's monitoring is providing inaccurate information.

If you haven't already, you can try restarting your computer to see if that resolves the issue. If the problem persists, you may consider disabling Kaspersky's disk monitoring specifically for that computer or contacting Kaspersky's support team for further assistance.

Found a post on Kaspersky Forums. Seems to be a known bug:
