Looking to the near future
So, are we all just stuck getting stabbed up the nose? Not necessarily – innovation is at its peak right now, with many different types of tests being developed. Saliva, serology (blood), combinations of virus and antibody testing, and better chemicals to improve the accuracy and rapidity of the testing are all in development!
If we have learned anything with the Coronavirus, it is that the news today will be replaced by something different tomorrow. Patients and clinicians alike can most certainly look forward to better days ahead when it comes to testing at the point of care and receiving accurate results.
