While the coronavirus has been forcing the nation into lockdown for almost a year, new innovations are constantly being made in the detection and treatment of the novel coronavirus. Advancements in the field of emerging medical technology have simplified the process of traveling and staying safe in the age of COVID-19 by creating detection and sanitization equipment that is safer, faster, and more effective than ever before.
One such recent advancement is the creation of a rapid COVID-19 detection test that can be taken through a breathalyzer. Like many modern COVID-19 solutions, the device is focused on accuracy and efficiency, with results available to testers within a few seconds. According to this article, the device works by detecting common biomarkers in those infected with COVID-19 and reporting the levels to a cloud-based platform that reports results to patients. This technology has already been field tested in Holland and is expected to simplify rapid testing of the coronavirus in areas such as airports and national borders.
