The discovery of the coronavirus vaccine has put many powerful states in competition with time. But first, you need to quickly identify people whether or not they are infected with the coronavirus.
A solution seems to come to us from British scientists, who claim to have invented a device which produces the result within 1 minute.
The test is done quite simply, through a bounce, the same as with the alcohol test. It even identifies respiratory illnesses like asthma and the flu. All through the 'biomarkers' that are most abundant in the breathing of people with Covid-19, but not of people with these other respiratory conditions.
Developed as part of a project called TOXI-Triage, the test is less invasive than the two main tests for Covid-19 detection, antigen detection and PCR, which include tampons from blood samples.
The researchers said their method could improve the experience of taking a coronavirus test and play an important role in restarting the economy.
Scientists hope that developing and validating their approach could allow the rapid diagnosis of Covid-19 in the coming seasons of endemic influenza.
