India's new paper Covid-19 test could be a ‘game changer’

India's new paper Covid-19 test could be a ‘game changer’ The team of scientists in India has developed an inexpensive paper-based test for coronavirus that could give fast results similar to a pregnancy test. The test, named after a famous Indian fictional detective, is based on a gene-editing technology called Crispr. Scientists estimate that the kit - called Feluda - would return results in under an hour and cost 500 rupees (about $6.75; £5.25). Reference-https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-india-54338864

Manufacturing firms and marketing people really deteriorated the whole quality of diagnostic system... Instead of improving and providing standard diagnostic tools to techniques, now a days they are started playing with health of society by marketing such short cuts... As a technical expertise - would you prefer to test your self with such methods???!!! Then why such gamblings are promoting everywhere... Think about it...!!!
