Fever cameras have emerged as an indirect and flawed way to test for coronavirus. But what about actual coronavirus tests that directly test for the disease?
Inside this note, IPVM examines the 5 main types of coronavirus testing options:
- Rapid PCR
- Saliva Based Molecular
We explain how they work, how long it takes to get results, how much they cost, how widely available they are, and what the projections are for improvements in such testing.
Can actual coronavirus testing provide a better solution than fever cameras? We examine inside.
Update: As new testing methods are expanded and research continues we will continue to update this article.
