The World Health Organization (WHO) is launching a worldwide trial that will be able to make a final decision on coronovirus infection within minutes of collecting samples. At a press conference in Geneva on Monday (26 September), the agency’s head, Tedros Adnom Gabrisis, said it would dramatically enhance the corona detection capacity of low and middle-income countries. The Kovid-19 transition can be confirmed by spending only five US dollars. The WHO called the incident a major milestone. This information has been revealed by the British media BBC report.
Detection of coronovirus takes a long time from sample collection to results. This is a hindrance in the steps taken to stop the spread of the virus in various countries. Experts say that in countries with high infections such as India and Mexico, the rate of testing is not keeping pace with actual prevalence.
However, the newly-developed easy-to-carry and easy-to-use test system will be able to report results in 15 to 30 minutes, said WHO Director General Tedros Adnom Gabrosis. He said the two pharmaceutical companies Abbott and SD Biosensor, in partnership with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, have agreed to build 120 million new kits over the next six months.
According to the agreement, the new kit will be supplied to 133 countries. These countries include many Latin American countries. Currently, the area most affected by the Corona epidemic causes infections and deaths.
Dr Tedros Adnom Gabriasis said: “This is a significant addition to their testing capabilities, especially for areas where the infection rate is high. It will be able to spread the test. It will spread the test, especially those areas There are no laboratory facilities or adequate trained health workers as far as is difficult to reach.
