COVID-19 test results within 15 minutes


Bern: Leading Swiss Pharmaceutical Brand Roche has said that it would launch a new 15-minute coronavirus test by end of Spetember.

In a public announcement on September 1, the company said the new test would check if a person had contracted the lethal SARS-CoV-2 within quarter of an hour. This announcement comes as a huge relief as the virus has infected over and killed across the world.

According to several international media reports, the pharma brand would launch and distribute millions of the swift testing kit in partnership with biotech company S Biosensor. For acquiring the ‘Rapid’ tests, all countries need to urgently seek approval from the US’ Food and Drug Administration. However, the company clarified that the tests would be prioritized for countries that recognise the CE mark for products sold in the European Union.
