Super-quick saliva test for COVID-19 trialed by Israeli hospital

FfFfFfFF

 A newly developed saliva test aims to determine in less than a second whether or not you are infected with the novel coronavirus, Israel’s largest medical center said on Thursday.

Patients rinse their mouth with a saline wash and spit into a vial. This is then examined by a small spectral device that, in simple terms, shines light on the specimen and analyses the reaction to see if it is consistent with COVID-19.

“So far we have very promising results in this new method which will be much more convenient and much cheaper,” he said.

That definitely seems much better than having a swab pushed up your nose :firega:

We have saliva based testing already—cotton swab inside your mouth and gums. Some people are skeptical and think it produces more false negatives. This one here sounds like a super enhanced version though.

That part I didn't know. Well, either of those two options are fine with me

My province was trying to create this. Wonder if they will ever advance past the old style brain swab that exists now lol
