Sharing ideas that do good
Researchers in Australia have devised a test that can determine novel coronavirus infection in about 20 minutes using blood samples in what they say is a world-first breakthrough.
The researchers at Monash University said their test can determine if someone is currently infected and if they have been infected in the past.
A patent for the innovation has been filed and the researchers are seeking commercial and government support to scale up production.
