The Farm: Scientists in Taiwan develop 15-minute coronavirus test

According to the Facebook page of Academia Sinica, scientists have developed a new test that can identify the presence of COVID-19 (aka, the “CCP Virus”) in just 15 minutes — a dramatic reduction from the current 4 hours of testing required. Scientists working in the lab created this test over the course of 19 days, which means it may take time until this particular testing strategy gains more broad regulatory approval. If proven viable — this achievement will dramatically improve feedback loops between patients and medical professionals by more rapidly quarantining the sick.
