UK scientists develop a rapid smart test, possibly usable at home.

Scientists have developed a new smart testing device for the coronavirus (CoVID-19).

Incorporating artificial intelligence, image processing, molecular virology and vast experience in the applied technologies, researchers at Brunel University London, Lancaster University and University of Surrey have developed an innovative device to detect CoVID-19 in 30 minutes using an intelligent smartphone application

The idea is to try and make it cheaper than other tests so it can be used worldwide at home, in GP surgeries, hospitals and workplaces. Once infection is identified, the intelligent system will track down all people who had close contact with the newly identified patient in the last 14 days, alert them about the threat of having CoVID-19 and advise them what to do via the mobile phone app.  Read the entire article here
