10-MINUTE CORONAVIRUS TEST

(Senegal)

To global excitement, and at the peak of the COVID-19 in March, it was announced that researchers at the Pasteur Institute in Dakar, had developed this diagnostic kit. It produces results in just 10 minutes at a cost of only $1. Once rolled out, it will even provide the option for tests to be done at home. The test kit is still being tested in partnership with a British biotech company Mologic. Pasteur Institute has capacity to produce four million kits annually and plans to expand if more partners join.
