World Health Organisation director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has announced the production of a rapid Covid-19 test.
The new test would give results in approximately fifteen to thirty minutes, rather than hours or days.
“This will enable the expansion of testing, particularly in hard-to-reach areas that do not have lab facilities or enough trained health workers to carry out PCR tests”, Mr Ghebreyesus said.
