New 90-minute Covid-19 test: Health passport possible says Oxford Nanopore CEO


A new 90-minute swab test that can detect coronavirus and flu, could help create a 'health passport', says the CEO of Oxford Nanopore, the laboratories that helped create it. The swab and DNA tests will help deal with the virus in winter, enabling clinicians and NHS Test and Trace to differentiate between Covid-19, which requires sufferers to undergo specific self-isolation, and other seasonal illnesses, the Department of Health said.
