There a good piece of news in the fight against the Chinese coronavirus.
American innovation is making big strides toward defeating this virus.
There’s a new coronavirus breakthrough. It’s going to make a huge difference.
Mankind has developed more medical solutions the past hundred years than in all previous ages.
Communication is allowing the rapid exchange of ideas and allowing people to build together what would be impossible for one person to develop on their own.
Unfortunately when the new coronavirus appeared in Wuhan, China the Chinese communist government was more concerned with suppressing knowledge than sharing it.
Researchers would be 2 months ahead on their research if the Chinese had been transparent when they first learned of the illness back in November.
Yet, despite the damage that the Chinese government’s cover-up has caused Americans are making great progress.
America is already testing both a vaccine and treatments at the moment.
While the number of cases are growing rapidly in America, it is partly because America is far better at testing than almost anywhere else in the world.
The testing may make the number of cases in America seem scarily high but testing people who aren’t symptomatic and wouldn’t get testing in other countries is allowing America to stop the spread far more effectively.
And America has produced the best test so far. Far better than the test kits China is sending around the world that are slow and keep failing.
America now has a test that can get results back in as little as 5 minutes.
According to the Daily Wire:
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued an emergency authorization on Friday for a new coronavirus test that can deliver results in just 5 minutes and is so small that it can be used nearly anywhere.
Abbott Laboratories announced that their new test is the fastest test in the world, able to deliver “positive results in as little as five minutes and negative results in 13 minutes.”
“The test will run on the company’s ID NOW™ platform, providing rapid results in a wide range of healthcare settings such as physicians’ offices, urgent care clinics and hospital emergency departments,” Abbott Laboratories said in a statement. “The ID NOW platform is small, lightweight (6.6 pounds) and portable (the size of a small toaster), and uses molecular technology, which is valued by clinicians and the scientific community for its high degree of accuracy. ID NOW is already the most widely available molecular point-of-care testing platform in the U.S. today. ”
“The COVID-19 pandemic will be fought on multiple fronts, and a portable molecular test that offers results in minutes adds to the broad range of diagnostic solutions needed to combat this virus,” said Robert B. Ford who is the president and chief operating officer at Abbott. “With rapid testing on ID NOW, healthcare providers can perform molecular point-of-care testing outside the traditional four walls of a hospital in outbreak hotspots.”
The company is planning to have 50,000 per day for official use.
This is just the first of many solutions for coronavirus.
The best minds in the world are focused to work together on this problem.
