There is good news in the circumstances of the crisis arising from the corona virus. A US laboratory has developed a test kit for the corona virus that can tell if a person is infected in just five minutes. The special thing is that it is such a lightweight and small kit that it is very easy to carry it from one place to another.
Abbott Laboratories said in a statement that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has given it emergency approval to provide it to health care providers as early as next week. In a statement released to the press on Friday, the company said that in this investigation based on molecular technology, if a person is not infected, it will be detected in 13 minutes.
Robert Ford, president and chief operating officer of the company, said, “The Kovid-19 global pandemic will be fought on a variety of fronts, and a portable molecular test that results in minutes will provide the diagnostic solution needed to fight the virus.” Ford said the probe kit being micro meant that it could be installed outside hospitals where there are a lot of Covid-19 cases.
