- They need to get this approved pronto!
- People are still waiting days or even a week for results, and tests are in ridiculously short supply still.
- The next stimulus bill needs to pour money into medical research.
Another glimmer of hope in the fight against the coronavirus -- a new test could process tens of thousands of samples per day.
Developed at Rutgers University, the test adapts existing technology to detect the virus that causes COVID-19. Better yet, it requires only a saliva sample. It just needs approval from the FDA.
New Jersey Health Commissioner Judith Persichilli says, “If approved, this would be a game changer in what we know about Sars-CoV2 and how we go forward controlling the spread of this virus.” (NJ.com)
